Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova seems to be taking photos straight out of a fairy tale. She used real animals (and models) to shoot these with the help of two animal trainers.  I love the strength of her pictures capable of transporting you to a place outside space and time. Alice in Wonderland… revisited, love it.

happy friday

I can’t believe it’s Friday already. Last week passed so fast (and my state of tiredness tells me I have been pretty busy). I spent a couple of days in Switzerland for work, saw family and close friends (thanks again for the lovely bubbly night on your balcony S.!) came back yesterday, just in time to get ready for my brother to arrive later today, I’m super excited to spend the weekend with him! I realized that my life will be pretty busy until we leave for Thailand (in EXACTLY 4 weeks from today!) but else it would be boring no?

Here are 3 things making me happy:

We had our first picnic of the year last Sunday! It was lovely, the weather prefect and apart from some sleep hours missing, it was perfect.

I think I’ll do this bruschetta again… I feel like fresh favors and healthy food this weekend

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

cool places : hotel ismael 312 in santiago, chile

I think I have told you how much I love Chile. I traveled there twice and immediately felt at home in Santiago (maybe it’s because it’s call the Switzerland of South America because if it’s strong economy and stable politics). It is a very livable city, green everywhere, wonderful climate and a part from the smog, I didn’t find a lot of things I didn’t like honestly…

Ismael 312 is a newly opened boutique hotel in Santiago, Chile. Located in the perfect neighborhood — you’re surrounded by restaurants and picturesque old streets, not to mention the park with its selection of museums. So perfectly placed to walk around and discover the city.

This last week, I kept opening and closing my closet not inspired at all (ready a full closet but always wearing the same). I need inspiration, I want colors, I want to buy new recycle old clothes (I’m on a budget, hope to find lots of cheap and cool bargain stuff in Thailand) so I felt happy when I saw these pictures on Who What Wear... thanks for the inspiration!

la dolce vita

Photographer Gray Malin documented Italy’s most famous beaches, on a road trip to the Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre (where I go spend my weekends during summer!), Mondello, Capri and many more.  I love his retro photographs with the typical retro umbrellas you can find there…. just beautiful!

happy friday

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week. I seriously started going around by bicycle again (jeez, I even uploaded a program on my Iphone that tells me how many kilometers I’ve traveled and how many calories were burned). I love the feeling of being active again and with this great spring weather, I could actually do this all day… I have a pretty busy ahead, tomorrow we’re off to the sea (the first time this year and I can’t wait!!!) and on Sunday we have a nice bicycle-picnic tour planned with friends around Milan…

Here are 3 things making me happy:

A beautiful view over lake Constance last weekend (when I spent a few days with my BFF), I really enjoyed being back in Constance even if it was only for one day…

We still haven’t booked a hotel for the last 2 nights we’re going to spend in Thailand in May, this hotel cought my attention though… love the interiors combining both modernity and a traditional Thai touch.
