Amsterdam Travel Diary.

Amsterdam Travel Diary 1

Amsterdam is a charming city with many delightful sights. I love the architecture, canals and most of all, the 9 Streets district filled with small coffee places, independent boutiques and concept stores. This time I also found time to visit Rijks Museum and admire paintings by Dutch Masters, something that left me with a strong impression.

If you happen to be in Amsterdam, stop at Laura Dols vintage shop, it is a chamber of great finds for those who love bygone fashion. Another good address is Skins Amsterdam, a must visit for all beauty care enthusiasts. Finally, if you have an eye for magazines from all over the world, take a tour to Athenaeum Boekhandel, the selection will make your heart spin.

From the Bookshelf. “Hygge. The Danish Art of Happiness.” by Marie Tourell Søderberg.

Hygge Book

Ever since hygge became a buzzword, there are more and more publications dedicated to this subject, and since the concept is closely linked to the Danish way of living, several Danish authors decided to share their ideas on what it is and what it means to hygge. Even though this concept is not a new thing for me, because when living in Scandinavia hygge is something you are very much used to (for more, read How to Hygge? ), I was still intrigued to read how can one write about it for those who weren’t born into it.

“Hygge. The Danish Art of Happiness.” is a pleasant, heartwarming book about coming together and experiencing the joy of little things, whether it is a lazy evening by candlelights, playing boardgames with friends or the smell of freshly baked bread rolls, the common ground is in feeling happy, cozy and relaxed, it is about living authentic and being grateful for simple pleasures that life has to offer.

Tied Together.

Perhaps some may say that a white shirt and a tied silk scarf is a boring cliche, but personally I believe it is classic at it’s best. An instant recipe for a timeless elegance that requires little effort leaving some room for interpretation in terms of fabrics, cut, details and pattern. Collection of scarves from Totême is as all of their designs perfection, simple and understated, yet not without a modern twist that makes it interesting rather than plain.

LifeStyle Mix. July.

LifeStyle Mix July_1

July was a month when too many things happened too fast, in the process I missed the opportunity to be lazy and a little bit careless, even a short trip to Sopot wasn’t enough to really relax. But I don’t want to complain, because August will bring a major change that I am so looking forward to, a new family member moving in with us in less than three weeks. Can you guess who will that be? I can say that the biggest wish from my B-Day wish list is finally coming true!
