Thank you, Odin!

I’ve been looking forward to a viking film or TV series for many years, and when my wishes finally came true, I was very anxious that this production was going to be, how to put it, a total crap. Maybe that’s why I was postponing it in my “to watch” calendar. But after seeing the first three episodes I do not bother about that anymore.

I’m a big fan of the Nordic mythology and I consider myself a person with some historical knowledge of the viking era. Therefore, i couldn’t help but notice numerous flaws – but they didn’t ruin the story for me. After all, the historical accounts about those days are not totally dependable.

I’m very impressed with Travis Fimmel and I think the role of the legendary Viking King Ragnar Lothbrok totally suits him. He does a great job at portraying a physical and intense character, with that spice of humor that is the viking trademark from the sagas. The rest of the cast is amazing too. The most impressive thing, however is the look of the show. Photography, art direction and just the whole look is so lush and rich, it looks like a feature film.

I am very happy that this show aired, I just hope it continues going in a this good direction.

Animal lover and a film fanatic can only result in lots of photos in the Zoo and a second post about those famous “stars” ‘ doppelgangers.

Real life movie characters

On Sunday we went to one my favorite places in Sofia – the Zoo. If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big animal lover and spending my time with them drains me from all negativity. This time I couldn’t help but notice how all of the animals that we saw were the real life doubles of some amazing and iconic movie characters. Like Hedwig from Harry Potter:

Small cow

My new job has many assets but one of the best things about it is that I can spend my breaks in the park with Milo. And when we went there yesterday I managed to capture him in action. The funniest thing, though, was a kid that saw Milo and turned to his Grandad: “Grandaddy, this dog looks like a small cow”! I guess he was right…

Maxi fashion

I was wandering for a few days how to match my lovely Nike Air max with a maxi skirt and finally I had a great idea: a maxi dress with a shirt would make a great combo. I added some of my favorite accessories like the Aliosha, my white rubber Ice watch and a handmade bracelet.  I loved this outfit – comfy, funky and complements the red hair perfectly :)

Electronic monday

Throughout my life I’ve listened to many different styles of music – from classics to metal, from jazz to rock, from country to industial. I’ve left the house and electronic music genre mostly for my teenage years. But for almost a year now Martin has been constantly exposing me to it and I’ve inevitably liked some of it. As a result here are my favorite ones:

My fashion icons: Rose Byrne

From her role as Ellen Parsons in “Damages” to the big screen with “X-men: First class” and “Bridesmaids”, I believe the Australian actress has a lot of potential for becoming one of the “most wanted” in Hollywood. And seeing her fashion choices you can’t escape liking her. Her casual style ranges from sharp to rugged, her beautiful knee length dresses, funky skirts and fancy pants for more formal occasions and her red carpet attires are just flawless. I also love how her hair is the perfect accessory for her combos. And that jumpsuit from the SAG awards was divine.
