Budapest Then and Now

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Have you been to Budapest before? It's such a gem of a city and I'm not only saying it because it's Balazs' hometown:) Anyway, a few days ago, we stumbled upon those amazing images of Budapest back in the 1900's beautifully merged with photos of the same locations in the present day. Seeing new projects like that makes me realize that cities are living things that evolve, grow, change and adapt with time. So much history in one single snapshot! Aren't they awesome?

P.S: Also, an amazing look back at Paris and a dash more of Budapest goodness.
P.P.S: 30 years of romance in the Big Apple :)

Low Loose Bun Day.

Swoon! I don't really miss having very long hair, but this morning I spotted this understated low loose bun and I literally gasped. The simplicity and that fiery colour totally blew me away. I have a photo of my mom when she was in her 20's wearing her hair exactly like that.

So if you fancy giving it a go, here is the how-to:

How long is your hair right now?

Springtime in Bonn

A few years ago I fell in love with this tiny little street in Bonn, Germany. Have you heard of it? It’s a short avenue full of cherry blossom trees that bloom once a year for about 2 weeks and make the whole place look like a magical pink forest. So when last night, Balazs reminded me of it, I realized it’s almost time for it to bloom. Supposedly, this year it will happen around the middle of April, so if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Bonn in April, you should totally visit Heerstraße street to enjoy all this goodness in person.

Can you imagine living there? Wow, must be awesome!

P.S: Spring festival of colour.
P.P.S: Also, Easter hair blooms and this spring cake.

10 Takes on Sassy Spring Dresses

Monday, March 30, 2015

Are you a dress kind-of-girl? In the last couple of years, I've been wearing dresses and skirts more frequently, since I find them so versatile. So, over the weekend I made a list of 10 of my favorite spring-ready dresses that I wouldn't mind having in my closet right now. The awesome part about them is that you can wear them with tights, cardigans, blazers and chunky sweaters before the weather finally warms up!

Which one tickles your fancy?

1. Newport dress - 2. Hush's Santa Monica dress - 3. Grecian dress -4. Zara's embroidered dress - 5. Amelia dress - 6. Chambray boat-neck dress - 7. Ace and Jig's carousel dress - 8. Pasadena dress - 9. Oahu dress - 10. H&M's patterned dress.

P.S: Wake up, get dressed, look good :)

Young Love

Spring marks the beginning of a new season with its changing weather, blooming flowers, longer days and love. Somehow spring always feels like the perfect time to fall in love. Seems that I'm not the only one, as Julia Xathos spends her days walking the streets of the city snapping photos of young couples totally and utterly smitten with each other.

I love how candid, real and sweet this series is! Are you in love this spring?

P.S: A nifty little smooching guide and this awesome couple.
P.P.S: Our perfections.

Spring Nail Mashups

Thursday, March 26, 2015

What do you think about a multicolour manicure? Recently, I spotted Eva’s weekly colour column and I've been totally smitten with the idea of mixing and matching different shades this spring. There is something so sassy about those 2 and 3 colour mashups paired with simple uniforms!

Above are a few of my favourites: subtle pop, sunny galaxymasculine touchit's never too latelike a fine wine and shades of coral. Which one tickles your fancy?

P.S: Found.
P.P.S: Ready for spring!

We live in a bubble!

Wolf Point in Chicago

Valencia in Spain

Mexico City
Harbour in Sydney - Australia
Shanghai in China

Venice in Italy

The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco  
Manhattan in NYC

Cannes in the French Rivera  

Rome in Italy

Miami River in Miami - Florida

Blimey! And just when we thought we've seen the most amazing cities from all possible angles, here comes a treat! These incredible images of the world's most iconic spots were snapped as round planets by a Russian photography group. With smart technology, a few nifty tweaks and a whole lot of talent, we can see Manhattan, Rome or Chicago at a full 360-degree angle like never before. How awesome is that? It took the team a jaw-dropping eight years and countless helicopter, airplane and even hot air balloon trips to capture every single detail. I’m swooning right now. You?

P.S: All things travel.
P.P.S: And tons more NYC goodness.

Easter Table: A Carrot Bouquet

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

What are your plans for Easter? Are you hosting this year? If so, here is a little tip on how to make your Easter table look incredible with very little effort. Each year, my mom makes a carrot and yellow tulip bouquet for Easter. She says it’s one of the best conversation starters and a fuss free way to dress up the table! Nothing else is needed since carrots make such an unexpected addition. I bet radishes with a bunch of lilac would look awesome as well. What do you think?

P.S: Newspaper wrapped flowers.
P.P.S: Plus , eucalyptus bouquet and some awesome veggie art :)
