Stories have it that somewhere between October and November, there’s a second summer in our scenic hometown, Ehden. They say the weather starts getting really cold so most people will pack their belongings and bid farewell to what was probably the best summer of their lives. Only the brave stay and after enduring the foggy mornings and freezing nights, they will be rewarded with sunshine, lots of it.
And you get to zone out, relax and wear those summer clothes for the very last time before stockings, cashmere and hot chocolate take the lead. What summer piece will you miss the most?
Shirt: Pull & Bear
Bag: Santorini local shop

115 heavenly islands located in the Indian Ocean, where time appears to stand still and the color blue takes up new hues you were certain did not exist. The Seychelles. Just like pictures won’t give it justice, words will fall short. Can you really find a befitting description to a place where the lush tropical smell, nature’s buzzing sound, and the locals’ carefree spirit are the main components? Not really. But you can tell people that it exists.
A distinctive combination of wild life and total serenity, exotic beaches and rainy afternoons, sheer luxury and humble beginnings… an unusual mix of French, British, African, and Indian culture. There are three main islands to visit each with its own charm and story and day trips to other uninhabited island are also available. You can cycle in car-free La Digue, rent a car in Mahé and swim in the world-class beaches of Praslin, all while thinking that at any given moment someone will appear behind the bushes shouting Cut! That was a great scene! The stuff of a movie.

Do we get inspired after a change or do we change because we get inspired?
The lines are blurred, at least for us, and as we are changing and getting inspired and then changing again we have decided to introduce a new category to the blog: DISCOVER. We intend to share anything from photos to mood boards to music to quotes. They might not always be our own creation but their distinctive grouping is, and that we hope inspires something new.
And while you are at it, change the road that takes you home, how much sugar you put in your coffee or the first few lines you read every morning. You are bound to discover something new.

Longing for next summer when we’ve only said goodbye to this one. It happens to all of us, missing the moment while we’re in it. Yet we are taking solace in knowing that Autumn tends to be shy and we can still enjoy the beach hair, loose bright dresses and colorful jewelry, even if only for a few more weeks. All perfectly combines to create the bohemian flair that sings along I drew a line, I drew a line for you,Oh what a thing to do,And it was all yellow. (video)

We take pictures when we travel. Incessantly. Like a reflex, our cameras start snapping every time we encounter that scenery or coffee shop. And when we are back home, longing for a place that fleetingly really felt like home, pictures seem to be the only way we can know that even though it seemed like a dream, it was all real.
Pictures aside and forgetting key chains and mugs, the best kind of souvenir we always bring back is jewelry…jewelry that tickles the memory of how you ran into that shop, depicts the heroes and poets of the city or is simply inspired by an extraordinary myth that the sales person charmingly assured you it was real. Though at times it might be a tourist trap, you are magically in a receiving mode and the truth behind it is irrelevant because you just love how it looks and the uncertainty of the myth is the new story of your piece.
Here are some of our latest souvenirs from our trip to Santorini. What do you collect when you go around the globe?

When you think summer, endless images of flower prints and bright tones come to mind. Among the array of happy wardrobe thoughts, the color black is rarely one of them. Though a classic, black is not a conscious choice, it does absorb the heat after all. Yet for its slimming reasons, retail accessibility or maybe simple fashion adoration, black always manages to extend into summer months and when it does, it just makes sense: no matter what month we are in, black over rules them all.

If you google the top things you should do in a lifetime, watching the sunset in Oia- Santorini is always part of those lists. What they fail to mention is that if you do it while sharing your best friend’s wedding, you will be ticking more than one box.
Everyone has bucket lists. Visit, eat, watch, travel, jump… They all start with verbs we can’t wait to bring into action. Last week we climbed, marveled and for a while felt part of something larger. We fell in love with the island and its intense shades of blue, we grew closer to the friends we shared magical moments with but most importantly we re-examined our priorities and felt as we always feel after a remarkable trip: our bucket list will never be completely ticked. The more we experience the more we add to our dream list and the more we would like to see for ourselves that the world is round.
