The weather is still dreadful (and by dreadful, I mean rainy, cold and basically awesome).

I want to wear...


Country



I don't know why but I feel like going to countryside. I absolutely love this skirt and cardigan.

The fact that summer is about to come is not affecting my love for rain, mud and chilly weather.

"A man who is bored of London is bored of life."

- Samuel Johnson

This being my last London photo post, I can continue to Istanbul photos from now on.

I miss London dearly though.

Royalt Mansions - the ultimate inside joke. Seeing this place cracked us up, lol.

Awesome blue coat and hat of the Turkish lady. (We didn't understand she was Turkish at first - oh the language, you connect us.)

I'm going all lazy again and apparently I need a time management class. Once I'm done with the London and Istanbul photos, I'll post more daily life posts and maybe reviews about a few products.

Have a nice day!

Arcades at Night

DSC_0943

I felt like I'm part of something classy, beautiful that will hardly ever change. I don't know why it was familiar but I could sit on the floor, be invisible and watch the days go by and time stand still in the arcades.

I found the rest of my London photos which I seem to completely forgot about - so this means that there will be MORE London posts until I am done with the rest. I don't know how I managed to skip after IWM and move on to something irrelevant. Shame on me.

Have a lovely weekend. xxx

Visiting Rembrandt / Istanbul not Constantinople (2)


1111

I absolutely love SSM. It's location is to die for and they always have great exhibitions. This time we went to see the Rembrandt exhibition - it was beautiful. Afterwards, a walk by the Bosphorus and a pint of Guinness after the dinner. I love James Joyce, the Irish Pub; if only they had cider too.

I don't have Photoshop right now, so the photo-editing is PAINFUL. Is there any other programs you can suggest? What do you use for editing your photos besides PS?
