I strongly encourage you to see the spring/summer 2014 ad campaign of Louis Vuitton, called ‘Spirit of Travel’. It is SPECTACULAR!
Once you see it you’ll understand my one-word comment.
It was shot in South Africa by legendary fashion-photographer Peter Lindbergh.
It features models Karen Elson, Edie Campbell, a variety of handbags and a giraffe.
The luggage has been expressed to suggest something?! Maybe to express the adventurous and free spirited souls of the future generation traveler?! What do you say?! I’m curious….
I love summer. The summer weather is sooooo enjoyable! It is just asking you for participation in numerous ways. My philosophy for this summer - a perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken…. And….. one that’s why I think about spending more time outside/outdoor …. Where you can spend more time outdoor? Maybe garden? Garden can be one of the most magical places in your life. The very act of planting, of beginning of new life from seed, is ritual and magical act in itself. What do you think about a picnic in the garden, a leisure moment with lemonade, sandwiches and books, of course, or garden tea party. If you don't have a garden then simply bring a picnic basket to the nearest park! Please, join me and experience the magic of garden…
The sun is shining and flowers are in bloom. Summer is just around the corner and everyone is anxious to spend a lot of time time outside. So to get you in the summer mood, here are some great ideas to get your patio ready for this summer. Create a comfortable place where you can sit down and relax with lots of cushions, plants and candles for when it gets darker. What’s nicer than working in the sun?! Keep the space inviting.
Enjoy and have a fabulous summer!
That is the way to camp on the beach in style ...
Quite recently a group of ladies on the camping trip gathered in San Onofre, California, to enjoy the sunshine on the beach. The beach camping trip was organized by fashion company Free People. The set up on the beach was just amazing. The driftwood teepee was built by stitching it together with crochet rounds and neon string. It was lined with a cloud of blankets and handmade pillows. The teepee surroundings were signage made of driftwood and seashell mandalas in the sand. Magical! You could see the long seated table made of rough planks where guests dined.
The Free People claimed that their reserved tike hut with a handmade banner was died in pink and stitched with sequins with nice painting. It was now Free People wander land where all could make friends, dream together and laugh…. Mystical…. What a dream!

Finally the days are getting longer! Finally, I feel the smell of a summer approaching us. My personal equation : Summer = outdoor activities.Please, take a look at Rebecca Newport (London based interior stylist) a gorgeous outdoor beauty. It is really inspiring and breathtaking! A soft pastel palette is wonderful! I really want to play in the garden ... do you care to join me?... :-)
You know the feeling of the first day after the long weekend?! A day where most of us need to wake up early and face our work/personal challenges…. In order to work creatively I need to feel both motivated and inspired. I found following photos which were taken by Ditte Isager for Vogue Living (May Issue). They reflect today atmosphere of May, with clouded sky and melancholy …
