Tell me one person, who has a good camera, that isn’t obsessed with macro shots. We all do! There’s just something about them, that i love, that i haven’t quite figured out, but it’s addictive!

Tell me one person, who has a good camera, that isn’t obsessed with macro shots. We all do! There’s just something about them, that i love, that i haven’t quite figured out, but it’s addictive! Maybe the detail, the blur. Anyways, when it comes to my desktop, i always love having having some good quality macro shots, it feels like my desktop is a window, and i need to broaden my eye. 
My main source was always DeviantArt, but lately i stumble upon the same and the same wallpapers.  Until……. i discovered i could take some pretty decent shots myself. I’ve been in love both of these, and thought to share it with you. 
I was too crazy lazy to make any iphone / ipad version, so if you’re that much in love with them, leave me a comment and i’ll post a link for you. Enjoy!

You might have heard me complaining a lot of times about the heat, but hear i go again! I think i’m not cut for that kind of weather. Yes i do love wearing summer clothes, and yes i do love going to the beach every day. Summer is perfect in every possible way, but i can’t deny the fact that i miss feeling the chill, the wind, some clouds in the sky, shadow and some rain, wearing a cardigan. I feel so alive in that weather! 
There was a good 5 minutes today that some clouds showed up in the sky, and covered the sun. The temperature was still around 38 C ( 100.4 F) but i felt a light breeze and i closed my eyes to enjoy the moment. I decided to create a mixtape that would bring me that feeling again, every time i listen it. Music that i would hear, in the shadow under a palm tree, or swimming on a cloudy or even better rainy  day. This is for that summer breeze.

Figured out that i hadn’t posted any moodboards and i’ve missed a lot from the past projects i have worked on. I will might post them in the future, but for now, here is the very latest i’m working on. I put my hands on this logo project just a few days ago and i’m already super excited about it. I’m so lucky how all the projects i have worked on the past years, are all so different one from the other and unique.
This one, is for a really awesome girl, fashion blogger and we are aiming for the perfect combination of, fashion of course, feminine, classic and sophistication. Black, gold and pink.

I’ve been meaning to make a post about it for a while now, with so many things on my to do list i had to delay it for a couple of weeks. So, anyway you probably now my huge social media love, Instagram. I’ve been going on and on for over a year now about, what a great place it is, how inspiring and how much it taught me about photography etc. Well a great picture never goes unfiltered that’s what i’ve  also learned! 

Yes the perfect capture and good lighting it all maters BUT, filter gives soul and depth to the picture. It creates the atmosphere. I’ve been using vsco since last summer when i asked my friends on Instagram which filters apps did they use. I stuck with it from the very beginning. All of the filters were just perfect, it was simple and so stylish may i say! And i had been using filter No 4 ever since. 
When the new vsco came up about a month ago, i was in a creative dead end. It happens sometimes, no ideas, no inspiration everything just felt the same. All of it was gone when i firstly opened the app! Oh dear, i just remember how i sat and explored it for a couple of hours almost. Haha it was like the event of the day! The filters and how they present the app itself was just so mind blowing and inspiring for me. That moment i just wanted to burst out with my iphone and start taking pictures. Exactly what i did.   
It feels so organized and clean, it’s like it takes photography to a whole new level. I heard a few people complain about the fact that vsco has now a store where you can purchase collections of filters. I’m totally all over it. When you first sign in, it does give a somewhere around a dozen that are free and then if you want more, you can buy them. It sounds pretty fair to me! Esp seeing how beautifully they present them! 
And then, there’s the Vsco Grid. It’s a profile you make and you can upload directly from your app to your profile on their page. It’s not like having an Instagram all over again, since you can’t follow, comment nor people can see how many pictures or followers you have on Instagram. It’s simply for inspiration and display purposes. Personally, i’m obsessed. As far as i know, you have to make a request from  your app for an account and it takes a while until they accept. It took me somewhere around 3 days. And now i have mine! 

I read on a blog that just for now only the “cool” people of Instagram get to have a Vsco Grid Profile and soon all people can have one. But personally i don’t believe that’s true, i think it’s just takes a while until they control all these numerous requests for accounts. Also, i was amazed to see that they use a new way of creating passwords (which i had never seen before). Instead of creating one word, you get to create a sentence of 3-4 words! How awesome is that? Anyway, make one, wait for it, it’s worth it. You can see find here corinanika.vsco.co
A few tips
• There’s a tutorial video to guide you through with the new features and how to work the vsco. You will find it on the main page vsco.co
 When using the Vsco Cam, touch both of your fingers on the screen. Now you can control and lock the focus and exposure! 
 My personal filter fave has to be the the S (bright & clean) But i really use almost all of them now. Depending on the picture i edit, i always get to find the right one.

 You guys!! Im just so excited! I’ve been working on this project non stop for the past days. And finally i’m able to share it with you!
So you may know that i have two Etsy shops. One jewelry shop (more surprises and new will follow up!) and one for my graphic designs the Logotype Shop. It’s the first summer i have this shop so this is actually new for me. I wanted to make a collection of pre-made logos (that’s what you will find on my shop) for this Summer. The logos themselves are not only for this summer of course ahha, it’s just these are the only ones i will make. Autumn and Winter will follow of course! 
Feel free to browse the Lookbook and of course good or bad feedback is always welcome! All logos are available on the shop for the rest of the summer until purchased www.logotype.etsy.com

A couple of days ago, i had to wear a pair of jeans and then i realized that i didn’t have any! Almost every year this time around, i take all the jeans i have and i simply chop them of into shorts.

Somehow the jeans just don’t like me. And to be honest i’m not their biggest fan. I wear jeans only in winter, and winter is the time that i really like wearing only cozy clothes. Warm, cozy and comfortable. Jeans are not in that category most of the times. I don’t know how that has happened but i have never had a pair of jeans that just fit perfectly on me. They usually are big on the butt and really really uncomfortable. I don’t think i have a particularly weird body maybe i just don’t know how to pick them. I guess somewhere around fall i will have to go jeans shopping again.. any tips until then? Am i the only one who has bad luck with jeans?

Well obviously we don’t celebrate 4th of July in Greece, but every year i’m just in that 4th of July mood and celebrating it in my own way. I wanted to take the time to wish you all have a wonderful day and celebrate it with your family and loved ones. Experiencing the loss this week one more time, made me feel closer to my family and friends. 
The graphic i made is also for my best friend and soon to be koubara (well i’m her koubara) who’s living back to her home in America for 3 weeks. And i’ll miss her like hell! When we moved in to Kefalonia Island 9 months ago, the one thing i wasn’t worried about was friends. I’m a lonely type of person and since i had my hubby by my side i was just fine. But meeting Chanel and her fiance just reminded me that precious, pure friendship i had once when i was younger and it meant the world to me. While growing up i thought it was only natural not to have best friends. With work, and life and being married it seemed like that was how things were supposed to evolve and i was happy with how things were. But friendship comes like love, when you don’t realize it and it makes you feel special and loved and it means the world. Have a great trip Chanel!
