Earlier this week i discovered a gold ink i bought a few years ago in Paris. Silly me had tucked it away in a drawer and my heart literally jumped when i found it. Wanting to put it in some good use, i practised on Jason’s invites and did some star splatters and this piece was the second best thing i had in mind doing. Can’t believe that an ink can look like actual gold foil. I’m obsessed.

From now on, i’ll just ink everything i touch with gold.

Gold has been always huge in my life. Without a specific reason, it just has been there.

 

These days, gold plays a huge part every day in everything i work. If you could take a look in my office, there are brushes covered with dried gold acrylic paint, gold ink sitting there beggining to be used, gold splatters, gold paper, gold water and today there’s some extra gold magic.

We have been working really hard on launching the new shop some time this year and i know i’ve already shared my new insta account that’s all about it – inspiration, behind the scenes and my cosmic work and today, i shared one of the biggest behind the scenes ever.

I don’t think i’ve ever felt this happy about a thing. Like, the knot you have in your stomach kind of happy. It’s always been about someone or an event, but never about a thing. This stuff just makes me happy.

Yesterday evening while taking a walk with Jason and Bella, we discovered a tiny wisteria tree down at the village’s church. I’ve never seen one in real life and was in awe just how beautiful the flower is! It must be really something standing below a huge wisteria tree, it got me thinking that i should totally plant one in our garden.

This one is the most exotic botanical scan i’ve ever done, and i think i’ll do more complex ones in the future. It’s one of my favourite posts to do as they never turn out as i imagine them. Hope you’re enjoying these as much as i do!

The weather might not fit anyones mood these days, but i’m sure you’re dreaming of hot sunny days just like i do. This my -almost- last week in the office before we all leave for a week’s break for Easter. We’re visiting my family’s olive fields and i’m only praying for a good weather.

Cannot wait to spend some time outdoors with Theo and Jason, walks by the beach, that has the most beautiful sunset ever diving into the sea. Lots of food and lazy days with the family, and more walks and naps below the olive trees.

I may do a video for this little trip of ours so stay tuned!

Well this was fun! Cleaning up all the glitter won’t be though. I’ve had this idea with the new moon glitter for a while now and i just loved working with all that sparkling thing. I feel like creating a whole collection with glitter bottles, because it’s just so darn magical to have.

I’ll probably try something more complex next time and i’m hoping i’ll make a small series out of this!

Hope you all have a magical and sparkly weekend

Happy *second day of Spring! We’ve waited it for long and now it’s finally here!

I truly hope the weather were you are is nice and warm. I can’t quite say the same for us here, but at least we’re not freezing and it’s not snowing. Of course, i couldn’t do first day of Spring without a floral post and here is quite literally the first poppy in our mountain. And i’m pretty sure that this is the first as J and i walked quite the distance this morning and saw only this one.

So here you go, our first poppy just for you, forever preserved in your screen. You can download a higher resolution for your wallpapers here.

Here’s to a wonderful beginning of the sunny season!

I’ve been always fascinated with crystals, ever since i was very little. The one i always overlooked however, where the salt crystals. That changed when we first got to the island and i started finding them on the beaches. We now have a small collection of them in our office and i got to photoshoot them the other day on a warm afternoon.

Jason has a salt rock lamp in his bedroom as well and we enjoy the warm light. Salt crystals have so many healing powers and i just love reading more and more about them. Amongst many, they cleanse the air, reduce allergies and help you get better sleep. Well, good thing we have plenty of them hanging around the house.
