Weekend Photo Journal: Neon Signs for your Home

Well, my beautiful pandas, it’s about that time again! This week I’ve decided to look at neon signs for home interiors. I don’t know what it is about them but I really like what they bring to a space. So without me yapping on and on about it, I figured we should just get right to it.

Weekend Photo Journal: Coming up Cacti

Well… It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post. But, I promise I won’t slip up like that again. It seems that when life brings you unexpected obstacles you forget about what little joys you have. Your sole concern is to sometimes wallow in a little self-pity, with a side order of negativity. And I, dear pandas, wasn’t in the best of places, mentally or physically for that matter. Life sure does have a way of making things interesting, that’s for sure. BUT… times are a’changing folks, where the light seems a little less ominously harsh and a little more warm and welcoming. Don’t worry I will share in other upcoming posts but for now, I kinda thought I’d ease into things with a little weekend photo journaling.

A Most Curious Wedding Fair…

Processed with VSCO with h3 preset

This weekend I went to the, A Most Curious Wedding Fair and if I’m being completely honest, I wasn’t really looking forward to it. I mean, it’s not my thing. Ok…. I gots no mans, no chance of even touching no mans and probably no chance of future touching of no mans. So I was a little hostile to the idea of seeing women pining over frilly frou-frou’s and cute talk. However with that being said, when I was about 5 minutes in, I already started singing a different tune; wishing I could find me a fella to wed real quick were the lyrics by the way. I was even tempted to pretend that I was getting married, but realised that would cause a lot of internal monologues and angst in a woe is me kind of way so I opted to say I’m a blogger! I mean DUH right?!

Weekday Photo Journal: Murals and Wallpaper Galore

murals and wallpaper

This is how I know I’m a grown up (on certain occasions) when I start getting excited about interior design, architecture, home decor and baking. Now I know what you’re thinking… How can walls get me all hot and bothered. Well, simply put, these are no ordinary walls. These are statements of fantasy and whimsical mastery. Imagine coming home from the harsh bustling city that’s chewed you up and spit you out to find an oasis of wonder, where dreams can be cultivated. I like the thought of that. I like the idea of coming home to your own little sanctuary. A place where you feel like you’ve harnessed the Zen power of the ancient world.  Anyway, I think these murals and wallpaper inspirations do just that.

Weekend Photo Journal: Everything Velvet

everything velvet

Let’s talk VELVET!!! It’s delicious isn’t it? It reminds me of decadence, regalness and opulence. It’s a sensual material that elevates any setting; whether it be your attire or home decor. It’s that of kings and queens and when done right brings out even the elegance in simplicity. I really do love velvet, as I’m sure you can already tell!

Ok pandas, it’s that time again! This week I decided to start stepping away from summer. Sad as it is, it’s almost the end of August! Ahhh…how I’ll miss it so. Anyway this weekend’s photo journal is everything on MARBLE! I’m not going to lie I’m slightly obsessed. Well, with that and copper, which will be next weekend’s photo journal.

So…. without further ado, may I present everything marble!

Weekend Photo Journal: Fantabulous Flamingos

769d45cda9d29603630c54e35f048835

Since it’s summer and I’m not back home in Cyprus (booo!) I decided that this weekend’s photo journal will be dedicated to the bird that visits my country… FLAMINGOS! I mean, why not! They’re funny, funky and majestic all in one go. And let’s face it, having flamingos around with their coral-y pink hues really does make for happier times.

Weekend Photo Journal: Lusting Over The Balmain for H&M Collection

Balmain and H&M Collection

Pandas, all I’ve been seeing over and over again is the beautiful Balmain for H&M collection. Suffice it to say, it’s been officially imprinted on my brain until it comes out on the 5th of November.

Normally, my weekend photo journal posts have been about colours, eras, and places. They have been generalised because, I tend to lust over many things. What can I say, I’m a woman of many loves. But I decided to make a tiny exception this time round. Reason being, I will finally be able to afford an earring from Balmain and not a tiny bead off one of Olivier Rousteing creations.

Weekend Photo Journal: Ain’t Nothing Like The 1950’s

Elizabeth Taylor

Pandas I often feel very strongly about the fact that I was born in the wrong era. Well, I’m torn to tell you the truth. From the one hand I really do love technology but from the other, I think I could give that up tomorrow if they invented a time machine so I could transport myself back to the 1950’s.

Weekend Photo Journal: Hooray For Houndstooth

Houndstooth

Okay Pandas, this week I have been lusting over Houndstooth. There’s just something about the pattern, not to mention the cosy thickness of it. It’s so chic for winter that I want to shout it from the rooftops. Now I know over-using this pattern can scream houndstooth road kill. But splashes of it here and there, will always be a YES moment.

Weekend Photo Journal: Envious of Ms. Emerald Green

Emerald Envy

 

In this weekend’s photo journal I have decided to stick to another royal, rich, decadent colour of deliciousness. And that my panda buddies, is the beautiful Emerald Green. Isn’t it just a divine, sumptuous, opulent,  and exquisite colour? It should have been the colour of the Gods. If Zeus was still around I’m pretty sure he would have draped all of mount Olympus and the Parthenon with trinkets, trimmings and adornments of this sexy commanding colour.

Weekend Photo Journal: Lusting on Burgundy, Maroon and Aubergine…. Oh My!

Lusting on Marsala

Can I just say, these 3 shades give me an orgasm. Yeah I said it and YEAH. I. MEAN. IT! They’re some sexy shades aren’t they? It’s that of royalty; rich, smooth, sensual, silky and bold to the eyes. Even as we speak they are seducing my eyeballs in some kind of sinister, sadistic, 50 shades of naughty way. Yet somehow it feels like the start of a loving affair filled with an abundance of spontaneity. You know, like that crazy, fun, secretive love you once experienced with someone. Not to mention it’s the shade of my favourite beverage… wine! I mean do I even need to say more?! These few qualities alone, made me decide to name these colours my weekend photo lust.

Weekend Photo Journal: Lusting on Everything Neon

neon

This week’s lust is everything neon. It’s such a pick-me-up isn’t it? One little pop of colour and suddenly an outfit, room, makeup, furniture, and/or shoes, comes to life. It’s refreshing, it’s bold, it’s flavoursome, it’s unique. Neon gives you a sense of fun and character. Not to mention it sure does brighten up one’s day.

So here are my neon inspirations that I drool over…

Sunday Vibes and Some Coconut Oil…

The many uses of Coconut oil

Guys, I have been meaning to write this post for a while but I am in the midst of a lot of changes. Work, a course that I am doing on the side and finding a new place. Phew! But I try very hard to write when I can. And Sundays, for me, seems to be the day where my creative juices start flowing. Maybe it’s to do with relaxing. Who knows. But either way I try to relax as much as I can on Sundays. And lately that involves some DIY Coconut treatments. And guys… my eyes have remained wide open ever since the very first time I tried 100% raw organic coconut oil.
