While in the country of a blooming cherry, we visited Nara, Japan’s first capital city. It is very buddhism oriented. I instantly fell in love with this place: with its beautiful temples, one of the biggest statue of Buddha, parks and of course… the deers!
I remember when I first saw the movie by Sofia Coppola; “Lost In Translation”, with polish subtitles on a car ride. The limiting circumstances didn’t stop me to completely fall in love with this cinema, its atmosphere, music and Tokyo it’s set in. I’ve always been fascinated with asian culture, especially chinese and japanese, but I think this film triggered my strong passion to travel there as soon as possible. Boy, was it worth it.
I’m writing this post as I’m sitting in a small airbnb in Tokyo, listening to Bleachers, next to my brewing matcha green tea and finished boxed sushi. Living the dream! It’s currently 10 pm here, so I will definitely go to sleep after this! I got to put my blog time somewhere in this busy schedule of sightseeing, even if it’s the last thing I do before bed.

How many times have you gathered the money for a full-blown spa day and then decided that it is better to go grocery shopping instead? The truth is that splurging on yourself should not be considered a waste of money. In fact, every lady deserves to be spoiled every now and then, and better now than then, right? This summer, you should treat yourself with some of the most amazing products and treatments, and make your skin and hair glow.
It’s almost summer! Which means lots of great things are about to happen, but I will keep them a secret until the middle of this month. For now, here’s my newest article for which I wore my favourite navy cardigan from a brand that makes clothing designed for wearing it on yachts, Henri Lloyd.
My friend, Lia B and I did a photoshoot with her own, handmade jewelry. She has an Etsy shop, right here. What I love about these pieces is they are so modern, simple and delicate. Most of her necklaces have beautiful stones, including quartz, agate, lapis lazuli, howlite (which is this exquisite white marble stone) and more.
I’ve been spending my free time exploring museums, galleries and libraries recently, as you may already know. I sometimes forget how nice it is to just walk along pieces of art that people made and feel inspired by such a variety. I wonder if those people knew that their work will be placed in a museum or a gallery for a long time for other generations to see. It’s really amazing when you think about it.
The light breeze of summer is felt more and more here. Japanese cherry blossoms in the UK, which is such a beautiful view. For today’s post we went to Royal Botanic Garden and the place was full of these pale pink flowers and bright green palms. Is there a better combination of plants to make you feel like you’re walking in the paradise?
Hi folks! Long time no see! It was a hectic week for me, college deadlines are near, thus the delay in writing a post. Last time I posted was only six days ago, yet I missed it so much. Anyway, today’s article is all about checkmate pants, hat that makes me look like a witch from Oz and oversized camel coat.
