eat pray love

I have become absolutely obsessed with Eat Pray Love. I can’t wait to read the book, and watch the movie, and fall in love with it even more.
Travel is just such a big love of mine – I don’t feel at home in New York, in America, in the same place all the time. I want to see the world, to explore every nook and cranny of it, from windswept Arabic deserts to exquisite Parisian buildings to Roman antiquities to Cambodian temples. I want to see it all.

I am so in love with the grecian-style maxi dress in all these pictures. It’s so beautiful! With a pair of nude pumps and the garland Pandora’s wearing, I would be so happy!
And yeah, the name doesn’t make sense, I’ve just been reading a lot of Agatha Christie right now. And it’s so crazy, god, the woman really is the Queen of Crime, I can never guess whodunit!
