If you were wondering recently what has happened to me, the answer is easy: I was giving birth
And here comes the announcement: Dear World, on June 7th, at exactly 17:48 my baby boy Yann cried for the first time in his life. He was a big baby, 4.180 kg, 52 cm and went out naturally with a little help from the doctor and an epidural anaesthesia. I felt no pain at all, I was really surprised when they put the baby on my belly as I was prepared for hours of hard work there. I mean, it’s not called “labor” for no reason. In my case it was just a little “effort”.
So here come the first ever published online pictures (I still haven’t shown him to my friends on Facebook).
I am very proud to originate from the Rose Valley in Bulgaria – it’s a region where the famous Rosa Damascena grows. Its oil is widely used in the cosmetic industry and I am sure if you look for the ingredients of the cosmetic products you have at home, you will find at least one that has it as a component.
Kazanlak, my hometown, is hosting the Rose Festival every year in the end of May-beginning of June. (This year’s biggest celebrations will take place on June 2nd) The cultural program starts with electing the Queen of Roses – the most beautiful girl in the town. The only condition is to be currently graduating from high school and be very charming.
The evening gowns that the girls wear are actually their prom dresses so we get to know more about their own style as well. Here are some photos from this year’s contest. I was pleasantly surprised as this year’s choice was my own choice too.
Once I saw these paintings I couldn’t stop watching at them. Ginette Beaulieu, their creator, is from Canada and seems to be quite popular and searched these days. What can I add – amazing faces, amazing accessories, amazing technique… Beauty!
