Inspiration: Nato Welton

Visiting the construction sites before lunch and then spending the rest of the day at the office makes my energy go from top to bottom. I know most people drink their coffee in the morning to wake up, but I definitely need it more in the early afternoon. Stopped to get a quick break I came across this beautiful photo by Nato Welton.


I want to paint my doors in this color. Hope you are having a lovely week! xo

Lovely: Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston is probably one of the cutest companies ever! All of their products are in vintage-inspired patterns which makes them so pretty and girly. I guess I am the last person who hasn't already blogged about them but here are some of my favourites:




I especially love the iphone and laptop cases and also their messenger bag ( <3 ). The make up cases would look so pretty in a bathroom too, don't you think?

Lovely: Melissa


Am I completely insane for loving these shoes? Perhaps, but my, are they the cutest!

My only concern, besides the price, is that they look terribly uncomfortable. And comfortable shoes is a must for me. Believe me, I would walk everywhere in my slippers if I could.


I just love how they look with tights in a contrasting colour! Perfect for autumn.


Yes, they are made of plastic. But a recycled one.

Life


Hello, lovelies! I have a reason why I haven't been very active lately and it is because I got hired to work on an interior design project that has to be done in just a couple of weeks. I hope you guys understand and I really miss you all.

The good news is I got twitter on my iphone and I am updating it quite regularly, plus I am now able to upload photos as well. So, if you are on twitter, you can find me there in the next couple of weeks and if you are not - I will still try to post here every now and then when I have time. I hope to see you there because I really miss you guys!

I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far! xo

Lovely: Crates


I love books! And I love looking at books, apart from reading them of course. I love looking at other people's collection of books because it says so much about them, about what they love and who they are.


Since my books collection is growing (now that I have my own apartment I can call it "my" collection, not my family's) I've been looking for an inexpensive bookcase I can either buy or make myself. And now that I've seen the beautiful things people do with crates, yes - crates!, I think I've found my future bookcase. Aren't these inspiring?



I also love the idea of using crates as bedside tables. How simple and wonderful is that?

Life is Beautiful!


I highly doubt there is anything better for breakfast than birthday cake leftovers. With Turkish coffee, which my grandma taught me how to make, organic milk and a wonderful book. Especially if you have a small garden to complete the picture. Ah, isn't life beautiful?

Thanks everyone for the kind birthday wishes, you are all so sweet!! I hope that your week is as lovely as mine.

Taking it easy


It's my birthday today, yay! I don't like making big plans for my birthday (anymore) so instead I am taking today off work and I am simply going to enjoy it with my favourite people. I made homemade birthday cake yesterday with my mom, just how we used to do it when I was a kid (it's all white and pink cream, hehe). We have some yummy things in the oven and the photo shows how my lovely day started - breakfast and coffee on the swing in our garden.

I wish you all a wonderful day!! I will save you a piece of my cake, I promise :)

Lovely: Organizers


Do you remember this post where I was looking for the perfect recipe book? Well, I think I found a whole lot of them on the kikki.K website! There are all kinds of organizers in white: for baking, recipes, even take aways. I love the cute little drawings of utensils in different colors at the front of each one. Another good thing, apart from the design, is that your recipes are protected inside the organizer so they won't get grease all over them while cooking.


I also think that My Manuals & Warranties and My Receipts organizers would be very helpful at every home. I have tons of these in boxes, folders and I never find what I need at the moment. So it would be really nice to organize them once and for all.


Other things that I love from this website are the Birthday & Anniversary Calendar (I always forget important dates, so this one would be really useful for me); 2011 Cute Diary (could I get away with this one at the uni or at work?); this cute luggage tag and canvas pencil case. If you still haven't noticed, there is an 8-year old inside of me :) I wish I could dress and behave like one, ha!

p.s. I found these via a lovely blog but I forgot to bookmark it and now I can't remember its name. If you have featured these about a couple of weeks ago, let me know, because I want to credit the website I found them on.

The lovely Rosa contacted me and I can now leave you a link where I found these lovely organizers. It was on ChicDeco and if you haven't been there, you totally should (and also bookmark it before your browser crashes, lol). Thanks, Rosa once again! xo
