DREAM SUMMER WEDDING ON THE BLACK SEA COAST

  You may wonder why I'm posting wedding photos when I actually did get married a couple of years ago. The reason is that 26th of May is our fourth year anniversary, which is set to be the year of silk, linen, fruit and flowers ( not going to lie, those are my absolutely favorites). So I have gathered some of my favorite photos from our beautiful celebration to share with you. It's funny how I never pictured myself as a bride before meeting my husband, and then I had all those ideas how my wedding should look like. One thing I was absolutely sure about our special day was that I wanted the wedding reception to be near the sea, by the beach. So we said our vows in front of our closest people at the beach. The party was raw and funny, we danced salsa and drank French wine with the best company of friends ever. I hope you enjoy the selection of  photos I have made for you, there are lots more of course...but there must be more left to share with you for our next anniversary, right? Enjoy and be as much in love as we are!









  











HOW TO DRESS LIKE A FRENCH GIRL IN SPRING


I t is amazing how much Spring changes everything around us. The moment we saw this Forsythia garden we knew we had to take photos there. So I took my warm blazer off and we started shooting. I loved how my breton shirt and red beret fit so perfectly with the yellow blooms around me. Want to hear a little secret? You can wear all your spring outfits as long as you learn to layer properly.

MY LITTLE PARIS IN THE MIDDLE OF BATUMI


It may look like I'm in Paris but this is actually a cafe with a sea view in the old center of Batumi. If you are following me on my Instagram (if not, you totally should) you have probably seen that I and my husband went on a road trip to the northeast part of Turkey at the beginning of October. It was a trip that we have planned for years but never had the time for. Since we were so close to the border with Georgia we decided to explore one of the touristic cities situated on the Black Sea coast. I had no idea that I would love Batumi as much as I did.
On the first day of our trip, while we were discovering the city, I noticed the cute little cafe next to the harbor. I instantly knew I had to take some photos there. The next morning we visited the flowers market first and I bought the beautiful bouquet you see in my pictures from the sweetest old lady. She probably brought the flowers from her own garden, which made me adore them even more.  Carrying the beautiful bouquet in my hands we headed to the cafe. Needless to say that this is one of my favorite photoshoots lately. I hope you enjoy it!

PRINCES' ISLANDS - ONE DAY GETAWAY FROM ISTANBUL


I t was a hot summer day when I and my mom decided to head to the Princes' Islands. They are the closest ones to Istanbul and the ferry pier is actually in our neighborhood. Our plans were toget to Buyukada, which is the biggest of them all and the most popular of course. Needless to say, life is about making plans from which you deviate, almost always. In our case, we got off on the wrong island. Minutes after we stepped on the ground, I realized that it was not actually Buyukada, but Heybeliada, one of the other Princes' Islands. It was already too late to get on the ferry again, so we decided to continue exploring this place instead. It was not a bad decision at all, you can see it from the pictures below. Enjoy!
