Bookmarks…

Being fond of reading, i always have tendency to get more and more books although i have less and less time especially lately. Every night i pick up a book to be read in bed just before sleeping but i always stay behind my target page as the desire to sleep always overcomes!

Meanwhile i found out another tendency of mine, which is to keep bookmarks in various size, shape and design among the pages. I am not one of those readers who can mark the page even with a piece of simple paper or a pen. I always look for a new and an interesting one!  After discovering this “hobby” of mine, friends also started to find quite distinct bookmarks for me. Here is the one gifted last week to me by one of my colleagues which was purchased from Japan.

It is made of golden yellow metal which has a Japanese house figure seen among some tree branches which you can see in the below photo more clearly…

I just loved it. Let me thank my friend here 🙂 And please do not hesitate to share with me the bookmarks you find interesting!

New Year Shopping

christmasgiftSooooooo tireddddd but sooooooo happy i am…because today i completed the shopping thing for new year (at least partially as for me there is no end for shopping:) )

I was busy and upset in the morning as i have gone through some health problems; but after getting good news from my doctor, i turned into a happy and  a crazy shopping bug 😛

First i went to movie store and i got new year gifts for myself, which are 4 movie DVDs: 1) The Color of Paradise by Majid Majidi, 2) Taste of Cherry by Abbas Kiarostami, 3) Dream by Kim Ki-Duk, 4) The Duchess by Saul Dibb and i am so impatient to watch them (i guess i will pick up one to see just after completing this post!). Last week i had seen Baran by Majid Majidi and i had really apreciated the movie so i started to chase the movies by the same director. I noticed i am quite fond of watching Iranian films these days (but of course my priority is always Bollywood.)

After buying the DVDs, i gave a break and sat down at Starbucks giving some peace to my feet, drinking some black tea and eating a cute and tasty brownie…

Then i was on mission to buy a new year gift for a colleague, i visited many shops and it was quite hard for me to decide what to buy beause the shops were full of lovely and amazing stuff and once you are lost among the charm and the color of the gifts, it is really difficut to select just one and leave the rest behind. However, with the support of my husband, i achieved to choose one but unfortunately i am not able to name the gift as my colleagues follow my blog…..sssshhhhhh:)

Then i got a perfume for my husband (but i will not mention the brandname:P )

This post sounds like an intro to the main new year post which i am sure will be full of new year resolutions…hehe…now i am off to see a movie (with a cup of hot chochlate!!! 🙂
