I have been in Arsuz, Iskenderun since last Saturday, where I am staying at my grandmother’s summer house by the seaside, with her and my aunt. This is the place I have spent all my summers since I was 15.
On our last week in Gothenburg before the vacation, it was culture week in the city. There were many concerts at the main square, many small art installations all around the city and a great food court in a few locations that had a wide variety of food from world cuisine. [Read more]
I’ve always liked littala, which is a Finnish brand that started as a glass factory ın 1881 and have today expanded their offerings to essential daily objects such as plates, glasses, mugs, coffee cups, kitchen towels, etc. My interest in their design increased when a friend of mine gave me the blue Taika mug as a present. Since then, I have had a special interest in the Taika series. I have learned that ‘Taika’ means ‘magic’ in Finnish, and the illustration of this series is done by Klaus Haapaniemi. All the different colors match so well with the figures.
I am finally taking some days off for my summer vacation. I preferred not to do that until now, since I am going to be in Turkey, and it is extremely hot for me during July and August. As I do every year, I have been working during the summer – while all my colleagues were gone, which is pretty boring. Now though, it is time for me to disappear!
While Pınar was visiting us in Gothenburg we took every opportunity to fill our days with creativity. We went to concerts and festivals, had spontaneous swimming adventures, had thoughts about future, planned our upcoming projects, walked around the whole city and most importantly did lots of fun photo shooting!
Do you have any favorite food you like to treat yourself with on special days, or once in a while when you feel like it? It’s Ladurée macarons for me.
These shoes… I love them so much that I’ve spared them since our engagement party two years back. When I took them out from their box this summer, I once again realized how beautiful and comfortable they are. There is so much possibility to combine them with different colors and styles.
