Kiroileva Koru

This might be something to buy as a present for a young man - Kiroileva Koru ("Swearing piece of jewellery") necklace by Mari Syren.

Hugo seems to like this necklace!

Scented Body Powder by VS

I'm not really a wearer of body powder, but as the temperature has been rising, it gives a moment of relief especially after showering at night. It's been ages I bought this Victoria's Secret's Sexy Little Thing Noir collection's powder, but it still feels & smells fabulous. The puff makes it easy to puff around, and you don't use the entire box at once as it might happen when you need to shake it from a bottle.

Body powders or dusting powders are applied to the body to absorb oils and moisture, to smooth the skin and give a pleasant fragrance.

Let's start puffing - or dusting - what ever the right verb to do this is! :)

7am In My Neighbourhood

Somehow 26C feels fresh & cool in the morning at 7am - especially  when the temperature rises to 38C during the day... I wanted to enjoy these last days of summer heat and went for a small walk with my camera in my neighbourhood this morning. 

It was interesting to see how some streets were still very quiet, some rather busy. People on their way to work, reading a newspaper... 

I wish these days would last a bit longer!

Photos of Lake Balaton

To put all the right apertures, shutter speeds and ISO values is not an easy task - at last not for me. And after that comes image processing...Should I add more light or shadows, increase saturation or not etc etc? Then there's this totally different world of Photoshopping...
Well, I'm not quite there yet!  

How to capture that right moment? How to tranfer that fabulous atmosphere into a pic? Those are some of the questions I'm straggeling with.

Zara Home Milano Collection

Zara Home usually has pretty colourful items, but now in its Milano collection the colours are swiped away. Lots of linen & cotton. Crispy & soft at the same time.

Here's a lookbook of the new Milano Collection:

Pure & natural!

Doors Of Budapest

Old, rustic, wornout, beautiful, ugly, colourful, detailed, decorative...
If you walk along the streets of Budapest you can't miss the entrance doors of the old buildings. Even though most of them would definitely need to be renovated, you can pick up those gorgeous wrought iron gates and window grills which represent the different eras like Romanticism, Neo-Classicism, Secession, Art Deco, Bauhaus...  

These are just random snapshots of some of the doors of 6th & 7th district, which I took during my Sunday walk.

I will continue this project district by district, perhaps street by street!

Anttolanhovi Wellness Village

I was invited to summer's most fabulous party at Anttolanhovi Wellness Village near Mikkeli in Finland earlier this summer. What a lovely, perfectly organized party and what a gorgeous place by a Finnish lake! Enjoyed every minute there - fantastic company, delicious food, nice activities, and still had time for jogging & swimming.

Here're some pics of our design villa by lake. There're also a hotel  with spa & swimming pool, and design hillside villas. Our main dinner was served at Kota restaurant, which was perfect for 50-60 persons.


A perfect place for an active holiday!
