Camera, Action, Baby!

Monday, August 3, 2015

Aw, be still my heart! Photographers love their camera bags and Alessandro Della Bella is no exception. So, when his baby son was born, he cleverly announced the birth by taking a picture of the little cutie sleeping in his beloved camera bag, snug between the lenses. Many other brilliant photographers had done it too. It’s like a token of their dual responsibilities. I love that! Don’t you?

P.S: Baby faces:)

A Little 'Natural You' Challenge

Have you ever gone 24 hours sans makeup? How about totally product free? That means no concealer, lipstick or moisturizer?

Last week, I read this interesting article on skin and how we might have the wrong approach toward our skincare regime. With advertisements and beauty campaigns, we are lead to believe that we need all the newest creams, serums and beauty gadgets to make our skin look radiant and fresh. Yet, according to Adina, our skin is a superhero on its own.

It’s self-protecting with the oil it produces that also keeps it hydrated, kills bacteria, and helps maintain our skin’s delicate (and healthy) pH balance. In addition, it naturally regenerates itself, shedding an average of 40,000 cells per minute. Basically, our skin contains a whole ecosystem of healthy bacteria that are responsible for eliminating toxins and as long as we eat well, stay healthy, and use just a few beauty products, we should have a healthy glow every single day.

So here is a little challenge to truly experience the power of our largest organ :) Choose a day this week, get brave and go products free for 24 hours. Deal?

According to Adina, doing a skin detox will not only let your skin hit a reset button, but it also might convince you of how amazing your skin really is without all the usual things you use. So, the deal is that you simply clean your face with water and use only natural ingredients like coconut oil morning and night - no moisturizer and no makeup. Instead treat yourself to a day of eating things like leafy and colourful vegetables, healthy fats, fruit, fermented foods, and plenty of water. Supposedly, you will see the results immediately. I’m so curious, you? I'm doing it tomorrow. Fancy joining in?

Girl Crush

Denim shirt + a floral skirt = swoonworthy summer duo. I love how such an unlikely pairing of casual coolness and pure elegance makes for an ideal little everyday uniform. I can totally imagine wearing it to a work meeting, a lunch date with Balazs or even evening drinks with friends. You?

Cheers to a great weekend

Friday, July 31, 2015

Cheers to the last day in July! What are your plans for the weekend? Lately, I can't get enough of dim sum and pho soup - even in the hot weather, so tonight we are meeting friends for an Asian-food feast. Besides that, tomorrow I'm going for a body art class that is a mix between yoga, meditation and Pilates. Wishing everyone a jolly good next two days and I will see you back here on Monday morning. Fancy going down the internet rabbit hole? Enjoy!

What unconditional love looks like...

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Oh my goodness, this little story just made my day! A little over a week ago, David and Sarah got the call that all families who want to adopt wait for. They were told they have a match and they should pack their bags immediately and catch a plane to Florida to meet their new baby daughter. They asked Sarah’s best friend, Kristen to join them to capture the first meeting on film. By Wednesday afternoon this little cutie was officially theirs…

How special, right? Love all around!

Lithuania and Croatia From Above

It’s always fun to see how our world looks from above, don’t you think? Karolis Janulis travels across Europe and brilliantly snaps birds-eye view photos whenever he can. His feed is swoonworthy - so if you fancy a dash of travel lust (from above), have a peek or two:)

P.S:Bird's view of NYC and rooftopping.
P.P.S: Also, airing out Miami style and flying over LA.
