Can we talk about Istanbul one more time?
While there are days that we spent almost entirely at the office, it can only be healthy to be out of office every now and then. Inspiration is everywhere and even though I have to admit that most of it comes from the internet (as literally everything can be found on the internet), I also like to regularly organize some sort of inspiration trip, to seek for stimuli elsewhere. Stimuli that are maybe a bit less obvious than what's to be found on Instagram, Pinterest or even Google Images?
Mary Wang is a writer living in New York, and a student at the Writing Program at Colombia University. Besides her passion for writing she is also the co-founder of MISS, a platform that celebrates amazing women in the arts. She has two cats that she over-parents, but only because she wants to raise them to become excellent citizens of New York. Time for a style talk with this cat-loving extraordinaire.
Summer has officially kicked off yesterday and that - more often than not - only leaves one big question... Who’s ready?! Most women immediately start to sweat (both literally and figuratively) when the first rays of sunshine hit town. Our bodies are never ready and finding that perfect bikini or swimsuit is like finding a bobby pin when you need one. Regarding that first 'problem', we obviously all have our insecurities, but I do believe we should definitely be more confident and embrace our beautiful selves. I mean we don't need to be completely #flawless (my dearest Beyoncé) to be pretty.
Stockholm based beauty Caroline Sandström - fashion and beauty editor for Metro and Metro Mode AND freelance stylist - has that admiringly simple Scandinavian style figured to perfection. As a beauty editor she comes across the newest products and craziest trends, but manages to stick to her favorites. Time for a beauty talk.
Amsterdam based eyewear brand Ace & Tate (you might remember their frames from this story?!) recently launched a second chapter of Summer frames called Reckless Summer and I have to admit it's hard for me to not fall in love with a few of their frames every time they launch a new drop.
Reckless Summer is all about bold and contrasting color ways in the form of three new frame designs - Capri, Cayman and Sebastian - in colors such as Cosmic Red and Bondi Blue. Names that do make you want to travel, what's not to like? And so I took four of my favorites to places I have visited in the past two weeks and it looked a little something like this.
