The Casual Summer Look


The Casual Summer Look

Hello, this look has been sitting on my desktop for a while which I can't really make any excuse why it's been there but never mind, here it is. I could probably say one of the classic casual looks is blue jeans white t. And that's exactly what I was going for. I just spiced it up a little :) ripped blue jeans and interesting sleeve white top which in fact was present from my boyfriend. I have to say he knows me well:) very proud of him as at the moment it's one of my favorite tops. And my black back pack goes with everything it's definitely everyday essential.

Inspirations For Three Special Occasions

I have some good news to announce: I am going to be an aunt at the end of the month (or could be beginning of September) which I am very exited about! I have been shopping for that baby like for my own. My sister is very picky (let's hope she doesn't read this :)) So I have to be very selective in what I get for her baby. So I put a little gift guide together from Uncommon Goods. The company is great and I love what they do. Not many companies can say that they use suppliers who recycle or hand make their items and use organic materials. You can even find out who the crafter is! As I worked before for a big retail company and sustainability is not a high priority for them. I know most big retailers are about making money and not really caring for their staff or the environment but Uncommon Goods is a whole new story :) Which is fantastic I think! Anyway I should go back to the baby gift guide;  I made a little collage from the items I love. I think I've got a great selection of items as who doesn't love mermaid or Pocahontas little boots? And these little baby knee protectors are so practical and cute! To be honest I could do with a mermaid tail like this instead of the throw once the autumn arrives.

I thought it would be good for me to do a Gifts For Men as well. As I think it can be very difficult sometimes to find something interesting on a special occasion! Me and my boyfriend had 9 year anniversary last June so next one will be 10!!!  So for sure I am already shopping around for something very special doesn't have to be big as we going to go somewhere nice but I still need something for sure! I think making a collage is great, it just gives a bunches of ideas. Its always good to know what they like as well, if they are into tasting drinks or sports or both. My boyfriend is into photography so  this pinhole camera which has to be constructed would keep him very busy for sure! I think it is definitely on the shopping list! Oh and if it works I could do some fun blog pictures - that would be amazing!!! Cute animal socks if they love animals is always a good idea and keeping boyfriends fresh and smelling nice always helps :)

And I think I should do a third gift guide as 3 is the lucky number :). Next May I am going to a big wedding and I am supposed to say a speech in front of  120 people... ohhh I don't know about that but we will see haha :D Maybe it will happen but maybe not :) (I hope they won't read this blog post either). Anyway, Personalized Wedding Gifts collage gives some good ideas to help me stay inspired! Popcorn (of course to go with some other presents) is great present for couples who like to stay in and watch lots of movies and the paper could be cutely personalized for example: for many cosey evenings spent together or something like that. But of course you have to be in a certain relationship to give couple popcorn as a present :) A lot of couples these days have present lists or asks for money to contribute to their honeymoon but something a little extra special and personalized would surprise them and make it more special as it shows how much you know them and how much though you put in their special day.

Summer Is For Dresses

Summer Is For Dresses

Summer is wonderful (I am thinking of a song sounding something like that). I always feel like summer is the time for new adventures and activities or just lazing about by the beach or the lake. It always feels like endless possibilities and new beginnings in September. Maybe I am being sentimental just because I am going on holiday and after that I start a new job. YEY! well done me! I am quite looking forward to start working for a charity! I bought homeless women lots of sausage rolls the other day and felt like I did a good deed. Hopefully the job will feel the same! 

Anyway, let's get back to the post theme! I just get carried away sometimes :) OOTD: I love wearing dresses in summer, especially when the summer days are so nice; it makes me feel feminine and it's so comfortable. I kind of paired it in shade of black which I think went down very well. I got this back pack quite recently and I am in love. It's so comfy, I don't know where was I before? :D You will probably get bombarded with pics of the back pack haha :) and I think I will get some more :)

Flavor That Sings


Flavor that Sings


Hello as I haven't written a blog post in a while I think it is nice to come back with a delicious post into the blogging world! My routine has changed a lot as half a year ago I changed my job and as you all know something like that puts you straight out of balance. Just only now I started feeling that everything is settling which is definitely a nice feeling. Anyway I am very exited that I got invited to Clippers Tea Lounge in London which I have attended. My Illustrator friend INKBERRYPRINT who meant to come with me had to cancel the last minute so my poor boyfriend felt so bad for me and came along as he would of prefer coming to the beer tasting haha :) Anyway in the end we enjoyed it very much!
I came in and kept on saying wow as the venue was so pretty and there was so much work put in to organisation, something like that even for a couple of hours. Food, as you can see in the pictures, looked so delicious so everyone was just making sure to snap loads of pics before we all ate anything. which I thought was very encouraging from the Clippers Team. Evening was very enjoyable we got to know about the science side of taste, aroma and flavor. Definitely left London more educated on the subject. And the last but not least we had a live band to finish a very pretty evening which I danced to. Not many of us did, I think a few tequila shots would of helped to loosen up the audience:)

Dressing Room - Mood board

The Vision:

Just imagine walking into a spacious dressing room in the early morning with beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. You look around the room and sunshine is bursting in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. You open the curtains and its beautiful outside: close to the forest, birds flying by, scent of blooming flowers in the spring time air. The room fills up with fresh ground coffee you are carrying around. This luxurious and private hideaway space is yours with dominating colours of white, green and grey/black. The air is so fresh and light from the filtrating houseplants. The space is yours to relax in and read a book in the evening or gently wake up in the morning.

About The Project:

 I wanted to create a beautiful master dressing room with lots of windows inviting the sunshine in. The style of the room is modern classic with chandeliers and house plants, light plain walls, modern furnishings like a sofa and dressing table. I wanted to craft a mood board with different materials and take loads of pictures to create a digital mood board. I used different materials on the crafting a board to create the sense and  feeling of the emotion which can be felt and the windows can be opened, the smell of  roasted coffee beans can be smelled on the mood board. The idea of the project came from ARHAUS, who inspired me to create my ideal dressing room and describe how would it look like. I used their chandeliers in my mood board as I thought they looked incredibly gorgeous (check out other pendant lighting options here). I took on this project with enthusiasm as I had loads of ideas how I would like my perfect dressing room to look like. The main challenge of the project for me was the crafting skills which I do not have, and my mood board does not look anything like I imagined. However, what I have plenty of is imagination and I managed to bring the main concept  of the original idea I had. For me it might sound lame but this project was a journey rather than a destination.
