Moroso

Remember I mentioned the conference I attended last weekend? They had lovely chairs there by the Italian company Moroso and after going through their catalog I found some very cool designs.

More on their website.

What I've been up to

I'm just stopping by to say that I'm still here, hehe. I passed all of my exams (yay!), spent some time with my family and had my first week of the new semester. I attended a conference this weekend (with Jean Nouvel and Urbanus Architecture & Design from China) which was great. I also kind of started working on something I haven't really planned - designing websites. We submitted one for a competition and another one has to be finished today. So this is pretty much the reason I haven't been around here plus I really needed some time away from my computer and blogging. I am now fresh and rested and ready to go!

The picture above is taken with my film camera and shows the view from my uni. Pretty, no?

Five Senses Friday

I recently discovered how beautiful Abby's world is (or at least the way she sees and photographs it) and became a huge fan of her blog. Every Friday she writes a very cute post called Five Senses Friday where she shares five things from her week that are worth mentioning. She also invites everyone to join and this week I decided to play along. Who knows - maybe this could become a weekly series.


tasting:

white chocolate mocha from Coffee Heaven

hearing:
the snow melting from the roofs and falling down on the street

seeing:
a little birdie I saw yesterday on my way home which was picking up fruits from a bush

feeling:
the lovely throw my grandmother made which keeps me warm

smelling:
the foot creme the lovely Patricia sent to me which smells so relaxing

Cutest Idea for Valantine's Day

I am not sure how I feel about Valantine's Day. I know, I'm a gal and it should probably be my favorite holiday and I admit seeing lots of happy couples makes me smile widely but I'm just not so much into the whole showing your love according to the calendar. My dear friend Rosi yesterday showed me a website that made me think twice about that holiday. If your favorite person is as keen on photography as me, then this might just be the thing for you!


My favourite things? Definitely the Double Shot Camera (which takes two pictures as a diptych!) and the Bad-Ass Bowler Camera Bag. Okay, the Polaroid Necklace too!

Photos are from here. You can also find more of the items shown above on this link.

What are your plans for this holiday? I have decided to use it as an excuse to get away from the loud city, leave my phone and laptop and just get away. Made reservations last night and I can't wait!

Lovely Mail

Today was so great! I had my last final exam this morning and although I am still waiting for some results I am officially free! Yay! Thank you so much for the kind wishes and coming here even though my posts were cut to minimum.

Today I also got a package sent by the lovely Patricia, who was my swap partner at the Lovely Package Exchange. She sent me some lovely things and everything looked so pretty! I got a couple of notebooks (it's funny how we both sent each other notebooks, no?), a very cute pink mini pen and a tube of foot cream that smells heavenly! There was also a very pretty card and a couple of poems inside the notebooks. Isn't that sweet? I had so much fun! Thank you, dear Patricia and also thank you, Danni, for this awesome idea!

If you want to see the package I sent, click here.
Hope you are all having a great week. Catching up on your blogs is planned for tomorrow.

DECO myplace

Have you been to this site? The owner was kind enough to invite me to share some photos there and I was so happy once I followed the link! It is full of inspirational ideas for your home but even if you are not looking for a way to change your place, it is still has some lovely eye-candy. These are some of my favorites.

They also have a facebook fan page where they share lovely ideas daily.

p.s. Stay tuned for another lovely website I am sharing with you later this week.

For the love of film

After wasting a whole roll of film (with quite some interesting shots I might add) I managed to load film into my new (old) camera correctly and today I got it developed. I am quite pleased with the results but I am not sure I chose the right film. Anyways, I've decided to sacrifice another roll for the sake of learning, at least this way I will avoid waiting for great shots and getting a completely empty film instead. Yep, I can be that silly sometimes!

Any big plans for this week? It's my last exam on Wednesday, yay!
