Ash Rose and Deep Ebony“No one knows for certain how much plastic, which is virtually indestructible, has accumulated in the seas. The best guess, made in 2015, was about 150 million metric tons. Assuming things remain the same, the study estimates that accumulation will become 600 million metric tons by 2040” – National Geographic.

It’s been one year since I got these two pair of shoes. They are from Vivaia, an eco – friendly footwear brand that is making an effort to create sustainable and washable shoes by recycling plastic bottles! I washed my pointed-toe flats several times during this year, and they still look like brand new. Vivaia’s machine-washable shoes (flats and sneakers) can fully withstand a cleaning cycle in the washer or a quick hand washing. I have them in two colours: Deep Ebony and Ash Rose. They are flexible and comfortable! Sustainable and washable.

Birthday cake

Birthday cake

This must be the best birthday cake I’ve ever had! I usually never celebrate birthdays or name dates, but this year, I happen to be in the beautiful Chania Old Town and I happen to have a friend who is a pastry chef. And if that wasn’t enough, we have birthday on the same day. Just in case you are looking for some cake inspiration, feel free to get inspired by our birthday cake. It tasted as delicious as it looks.

Shoutout to Vivaia official, an eco – friendly footwear brand whose mission and story I discovered recently…each Vivaia pair of shoes is made of 6 plastic water bottles. When you purchase a Vivaia pair of shoes, you prevent six plastic bottles from breaking into millions of microplastics and harming marine life. And the shoes turn out to be super chic and the most comfortable I have ever worn. You must see and touch them by yourself!

Here is a Discount code for you: Code “SILIA” for 10% off (15% off before Dec. 27th)

Gallery wall

Gallery wall

I am not an interior designer, or have I studied design. But I do believe that making a gallery wall with pictures helps me to understand what I can do with my photos in the future. I’d like, for instance, to see my photos printed and hang them on my wall one day.

So far, I created 3 gallery walls in my little appartment, and through this process, I learnt a few things that I would like to share with you.

  • First of all, think of where in your apartment you can create a gallery wall. Where would a gallery wall look good? Do you have an empty wall in your apartment?
  • Take your time and choose the prints carefully. No need to rush through the selection. Ideally ask help from a friend (someone with a good taste). It’s also more fun to choose the prints with a friend, than choose them alone.
  • I think it would be best if you choose prints of different dimensions. That was the mistake I did the first time. I placed an order of prints of the same dimensions and I realized that this was actually a mistake when I started putting the posters on the wall. I couldn’t create a gallery wall, when all the prints had the same size.
  • The first time I made a gallery wall, I had envisioned the gallery in my mind. Unfortunately it turned out that what I had envisioned, didn’t look good on the wall. Most probably your gallery wall won’t look good immediately. But don’t let this dishearten you. Take the time to think what’s wrong, what you can do to improve ,and change the position of the posters until you are happy with the final result.

The posters on this wall are:
Naked lines no2 / Ink print no2 / Camera / Black shirt / Sun hat shade / Paris no7
