First Signs Of Autumn

Monday, September 15, 2014






What's your favourite thing about autumn? For me is when the leaves start turning all yellow, red and brown and their rustling sound when you walk on them. So, last Saturday while visiting friends, I finally noticed the first signs of autumn in their backyard and even though I still wore sandals, it felt great knowing that the new season is upon us and that those beautiful yellow leaves will be all around very very soon. Are you ready? How is the weather on your end? xo

P.S: Ah, sweater weather :)
P.P.S: My flat smells like this right now.

The Big Bang







Yippee, according to Vogue, blunt, rich, full and sassy bangs are a must this autumn. Supposedly, the fuller the better, since it guaranties to highlight your best features (cheeks and eyes) and frame your face in the most sassy Jane-Birkin-type-of-way. Ah, bangs are my weakness, especially with red lips and geek chic glasses, so I'm tempted. You? xo

P:P:S: Plus, tons more hair-chat:)

Floating





Blimey, have you ever wondered how it would feel to live in a world of weightlessness? Imagine the feeling of just floating in mid-air at all times - bizarre yet wonderful, if you ask me.

Well, Tomas Januska brilliantly came to a realization that people are moving less and less nowadays, so he wanted to show what they are missing out on. So for his final University project, he created this amazing black and white series where he showcased dancers and ordinary people floating in mind-air, all happily energetic and a bit silly. I don’t know about you, but just looking at those photos makes me smile. Aren't they cool?

Fun fact: each individual jumped between 150 to 600 times during a single photo shoot. Yowza!

P.S: This series reminds me of this.
P.P.S: Out my window.

End Of Summer Salad

Thursday, September 11, 2014

If you are still trying to hang on to the last bits of summer, make this salad, pour yourself a glass of wine, kick off your shoes and enjoy it while listening to 'Kind of Blue' on your balcony. It's a total bliss...

That's exactly what we have done for the past two nights. There is really nothing better for your body or your mind than a simple mix of beautifully colourful tomatoes and pomegranate seeds. Plus, as Yotam Ottolenghi said himself: 'the sharp, almost bitter sweetness of pomegranate and the savoury, sunny sweetness of tomato complement each other so gloriously.' Spot on! Would you try it? xo

P.S: Here is an easy way to seed a pomegranate and a great trick to chill your wine on the go.
P.P.S: Plus, don't miss our stunning jewelry GIVEAWAY this week:)
