Inspiration: Julian Bialowas

My dear friend Lora showed me the work of Julian Bialowas yesterday. Of course I loved it! I know combining vintage-looking photographs with some clever quotes (preferably written in Helvetica) has become a bit of a cliche but even so his work is no less beautiful and inspiring. Julian is a photographer who also studies graphic design, which makes perfect sense looking at his work. You can see his 365 days project here and even buy some of his prints. I have to say I am very tempted to do so.

Lovely Weekend and Take a Cake

Hello, dear friends! How was your week? I finally finished my project and got an A (yay!) I've been trying to catch up on sleeping this past weekend hence the lack of posts over here.

Last weekend we went to Take a Cake. It's a very tiny (but oh, so cute!) bakery for nothing but cupcakes! Dream come true, right? You absolutely have to see the interior by studio Funkt, it so pretty! They also made most of the furniture and the lights made of empty jars are so my next DIY project! I feel like a happy little girl walking inside this place!

Our favourite cupcakes were without a doubt the carrot and raisin ones.

On my way home I bought some tiny flowers from an old lady. I can't stop looking at them, they make me so happy! I prefer pretty spring flowers to the big expensive rose bouquets. They just have so much more character, don't you agree?

Spring Colours Week: Pink!

Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a lovely week! Mine has been quite busy as I already mentioned but it has also been very productive. My project is due tomorrow (wish me luck!) and I still have a few things to fix before I can say I'm ready, but after I met my teacher today I am quite calm and confident.

This photo was a bit easier to shoot probably because I had more pink objects to choose from. The book is the Bulgarian translation of "Little Women" (my favourite book as a kid!). I got it for my 10 years old niece, I hope she reads it and likes it as much as I did. I got it from an open-air book market in the park this weekend. I know - books and parks go so well together! I don't really like the cover though, but it was the only one I could find in months! The previous edition (the one that I've read) had beautiful pictures on the cover and it only made me like the book even more. I remember I was trying to guess which girl from the book is which one from the cover. If this is not a proof how powerful a book cover could be then I don't know what is :)

For more info on the objects and to see bigger visit my flickr.

Spring Colours Week: Yellow!

Even though I took a "yellow" photo last week (silly me!) I still wanted to play along and take another one. I hope you like it.

The agenda on this photo I got last weekend. I know, it's a bit late for shopping for agendas and callendars but it was on sale plus I didn't have one. I usually buy notebooks and diaries in cold colours, mostly blue, but I thought I should try something fun and new. So I got it in bright, bright yellow and it makes me smile whenever I look at it.

Have you noticed any preferences you have for one colour over another? It's funny because I had never really thought about it until now.

Please, visit poppytalk for more info about Spring Colours Week.

Spring Colours Week: Green!

This time there's no mistake. Spring Colours Week is here! I hope you join the fun.

My project for uni is due on Thursday so I might not be blogging so much until then. I would love to take a photo each day for Spring Colours Week though, so be sure to check here for my photos if you like. I am also on twitter for any quick updates. Hope you have a wonderful week, dear friends! See you soon :)
