The sound of the Ohrid Lake



It seems like I have had the draft version of this post for like foreeever *read this in Kim K voice for a special effect*
And I am so happy to finally reveal what we made with @petrovskaangela in Struga, this July *the photos are already on Angela's profile, I know, but let me have my 5 minutes of fame, please*


The sound of the Ohrid Lake. It may sound silly, for people that have never heard it and keep in mind that you can't hear it at all times.
 See, I don't blame anyone for visiting the lake at the peak of the season alongside the crowd and the food stands, but that's not the time when the lake pours its soul and all the colors it has to offer. 
That usually happens when everything gets quiet, perhaps in September, when everyone is gone & the cafes are slowly closing their terraces, letting the lake to breathe. 
I wouldn't know this if I have never had the privilege to hear how my Lake sounds like. Mine, because I have grown up there, by the lake. 
Not a year has passed, without a visit. And I will never stop visiting, because it's my second home. 
By now, you probably think okay nice, she loves it, good photos, great outfit, but this post is holding another message - The oldest lake in Europe is in danger. Why? How? 
The answer is obvious, it's because of pollution. Because we are polluting our own lake. Why? I can't explain that to myself either. What we can do about it? We can just stop being ignorant and start from ourselves. I am not talking about strict recycling, that no one here would respect, but a lot can be done if everyone just starts cleaning after themselves, if everyone just collects their own garbage and puts it in the right place. Then we can start helping others like we did when we came to the beach to shoot *there was a looot of trash* 
Small steps count. 
I am sorry, but I am so pissed off. I hope you all have a good night.

How often do you shine?


A new blog post, third week in a row. Is this happening? Am I finally posting regularly?

I found a quote in Cereal magazine and I combined it my way.

I AIM TO TRANSLATE MOMENTS, OBJECTS OR FEELINGS, AND TO SIMPLIFY SO THE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT CAN SHINE, IN A WAY THAT EVERYONE IS ABLE TO UNDERSTAND

And the essential ingredient of this post is a sequined top, that made me shine.
I love sparkly things, but sometimes, I shine even without them.

- When does that happen? I am going to be honest, my face shows my real emotions really fast, and maybe it's superficial to say, but it shines when everything goes my way, when I am around the people I love & thing are the way they have to be.

@iksolokin made me shine this time and I am so grateful for that.
Enough writing, I'll let you enjoy these photos.

Under the banana tree ft. @iksolokin



This story is one of two in partnership with @iksolokin (partnership sounds better than collaboration, right?). The first one begins and ends in a tropical atmosphere of a Botanical garden.

First things first, you must know that these photos are 20% me & 80% @iksolokin (I have no idea how I managed to follow all the instructions and pose so spontaneously). I am not that relaxed in front of the camera, even though I am in that position quite a lot. But, this time, I trusted the photographer and did everything he told me to. Can you lay on the stairs? - Sure! Would you try to hold the leave with one hand and your head with the other? - Okay!
I have to admit that I have never been this excited to share a blog post.
And it's not a regular post, where I tell you that I have this and that and I hope you enjoy.
Posting on Instagram daily is one thing, but when it comes to the blog, I become so picky and critical, that I am rarely this happy with the final product.
& this time, I simply enjoyed shooting, so I am sure you will love the photos as much as I do.

Sometimes (once in a million years), the location, the outfit and the person behind the camera just *CLICK* & that's when magic things happen!
