SULTANAHMET SIGHTSEEING - 1


Ciaooo : ) I managed to keep my promise and before the week is ending I am showing my face again : ) Finally I am starting the Istanbul posts. The below photos are from 1st of November, a lovely Saturday with my mom in Sultanahmet, hanging around like tourists : )

I love pomegranates, enjoy the taste and the sight of it, I have few pomegranate decorations as well. When we were walking in front of Nuriosmaniye Mosque, we saw this guy selling pomegranate juice, so we had to have some of this beauty : )

Just because I promised and even said that I am forced to make a post last weekend, here is a quick post with one day delay. Me in my silly lilly outfit walking in Milano streets : )

COBALT & EYE


Ciaooo : ) Here is an outfit I wore in Bucharest. I had seen this sweatshirt early summer and put it in my mental shopping list for winter sales, but when I tried it on in Milan I just couldn't resist : ) I have a similar one with cloud theme from last year and used it a lot so money well-spent for a design I will like for decades, and with its good quality it will last decades, and I think in one decade time my son can start using them as well : )



And what about my summer sale scores in cobalt and black, I am lucky or what : )

GLIMPSES FROM BUCAREST


I made it : ) Before November ended I made the Bucarest post with autumn colors : ) It was a business trip so I had very limited time to discover what this city offers, that is why I used the word glimpse in the title. And among the parts I saw, I was most impressed by the neat well-organized park around Herastrau lake and Lipscani area with its plenty of cafes&restaurants.

FRIENDS IN FLORENCE


Ciaoooo : ) A quick post depicting a lovely evening in Florence around late October. A very sweet couple from Istanbul were in town, so we met and time allowing I showed them some gems of my second town. I enjoy what they share on their instagram pages, BeTwinUs , GizliTeras and Dehannn.  They take the photography seriously, so it was fun shooting with them. Dehan took the photos I am in, so many good ones that I had difficulty to eliminate, he made good settings I would say, and his directions are very funny too : ) As usual the photos are without any edit or filter.

MILAN STREETS - 1


I know I know I am behind my schedule and didn't post as I was planning, so Rome and Florence posts are postponed, first a partial Milano ( focusing on yellow and grey colors ) and then Bucarest with autumn colors before November finishes, fingers crossed, work allowing of course : )

Let's have a walk with me around Via Torino, Duomo, Galleria and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

GOLDEN ROME


My gold tribute to Rome : ) First a long exposure shot I made of Castel Sant' Angelo along Tevere river, and then me in my golden outfit. This is one of my favorite dresses, it is quite old, I had bought it in Auckland many years back, and the cut is such a classic that I can wear it for few more decades easily : ) And needless to say I like my statement necklace in the same tones, it is from new season : )

CANDLE LOVE


I love candles, and made a big collection of special ones over the years. I love their light and smell. I also have sweet memories with candles since my childhood, when I see a burning candle I cant resist passing my finger through the flame quickly, left and right left and right : )

And I love Fornasetti, you will see below, and these are not all the Fornasetti pieces I have at home, there are more in other rooms : ) During my recent Milan trip, I definitely had to visit their store in Corso Matteotti and got myself a little souvenir : )

MINTY ROOF


And minty me : ) Ever since I saw this rooftop on AYSSTYLE, I wanted to visit it. Many years ago, I visited so many roofs around the world thanks to my job, that is why I have a thing for rooftops and towers and the panorama from high up : )
So the day has come, after the fashion week meeting with Aysun, we were in Karakoy visiting friends and one talented painter friend, Nuray Ozler, has a studio on top floor. When she needed to close her studio, I didn't miss the chance and we climbed 5 floors stairs and enjoyed the view : ) As Aysun has quite a bit of photography experience on this roof, as seen herehere and here, she took many nice photos, so I had difficulty to eliminate again : )
