Eastern European fashion has gotten a big PR boost during recent years thanks to street style stars such as Mira Duma, Lena Perminova, Vika Gazinkskaya and Ulyana Sergeenko.
Things are definitely changing in my little universe, when before I would have only wanted to spend money on clothes, shoes or travelling, I now don't mind the thought of spending less on that and more on nice things for the home.
Another week, another 7 days of getting dressed. And the moody weather does not make it easy. But here's help in the form of an outfit idea for every day of this week that will work whether the sun decides to show up or whether it yields to the rain.
When we were in Morocco, we bought a new beautiful rug that really doesn't go with the cushions on the sofa. That's fine. I never liked them. So I had a look for new, fitting ones and during that process found a few other things that are very high on my home wishlist now. How long until Christmas again?
Even though wedding dress designers bring out new collections every season, let's face it they always look kind of the same. Lace? For a wedding dress? Groundbreaking. But, fashionable brides, don't despair, Haute Couture has got you covered. Think less Beyoncé, more Solange with these ten fresh ideas.
It might not make much sense that I am writing this on a cloudy day. However, I cannot wait for the first spring days where a scarf can finally be exchanged for sunglasses. Nothing beats that feeling.
I don't need a notebook. What I actually need is to get rid of some of the ones that I have got because it's way more than I could ever fill. There just aren't enough thoughts in my head. But as long as the stationary industry keeps on producing such beautiful journals I will have to buy them, I have no choice.
My dining room area, which is actually the tiny space between our open plan kitchen and the lounge, can only be described as boring. I'm not to blame. Before I moved in, my boyfriend committed one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, dining room sins: He bought matching wooden chairs and table. Luckily, with the help of some amazing chairs, this is an easy problem to solve.
No one does colours and colour combinations quite like Roksanda. Apart from maybe Henri Matisse. And I wouldn't be surprised if his exhibition in Tate Modern last year served as inspiration for this show.
I'm completely done with winter. The cold is not my friend. I never understood why people wanted to go skiing in March or April at the very end of a long and cold winter. All I want to do is go to the beach and let the sun rays tickle my pale skin. And probably colour it red. But how to better fight a winter depression, without going on holidays, than by looking at images of Talitha Getty, the 1960's queen of the bohemian style?!
