N E C K L A C E | LOFFIE SEMI JOIAS

LOFFIE SEMI JOIAS 1For some women, perfume and makeup are the two main things they never leave the house without, me it’s jewelry. My old watch and my engagement/wedding rings are like glued on my hand and I don’t like taking them off or replacing them with other jewelry however when it comes to necklaces and earrings, it is the total opposite.
This gorgeous necklace created by the fabulous Marielli from Brazilian jewelry brand Loffie Semi Joias is a timeless masterpiece that I was saving for a special occasion to wear with a nice elegant outfit but being impatient as I am, I couldn’t wait but wear it on the beach this summer to show it off a bit. And I can tell that some people have noticed me either because of my gorgeous necklace or because they couldn’t figure out what the hell was I doing with my camera, either way the end result makes it all worth it.

If you enjoyed this post, also check out  Loffie Jewelry part 1 and Loffie Jewelry part 2 to see more great designs from the brand.

Have a nice weekend guys,

K O R N A T I | PART 1

It would have been a shame to leave Dalmatia without visiting the K O R N A T I , archipelago of Croatia which includes 140 islands. The trip was very pleasant due to the family atmosphere that reigned on the boat.  We left early in the morning and spent most of the day on the boat, cruising in between islets and reefs, snapping pictures and socializing with other passengers. During our first stop, we reached the highest point of the Kornati from where we enjoyed the mesmerizing view and also took some beautiful pictures, that will be revealed in part 2. There, we swam and dived for almost an hour and after we were on our way to a local restaurant. After eating lunch and visiting the surroundings, the boat stopped in the middle of the sea and we couldn’t resist jumping off the boat in the deep blue water. It was amazing!

WEEKEND GETAWAY

WG 1The weekend at the seaside in Novi Grad in Croatia with some good friends was exactly what we needed and even more. The weather wasn’t ideal as it was windy all weekend long but we wewe anyways able to enjoy the first swimming this season in the beautiful Adriatic sea with its 24 degrees. But the best thing must be the little cabin we spent the weened at that is located just steps from the sea so we had the chance to fell asleep and woke up with the sound of the waves every day, and I swear, it is the best feeling ever.

The seagulls also played a great role in making my weekend invigorating and very cool. We fed them while emptying and cleaning the sardines we bought for lunch. At the end they were more than 20 on the beach, flying above us, fighting between them and some of them making their recognizable noises. After that I had the feeling they were following us as I kept hearing them scream everywhere we went. ^_^

I hope you will like the pics I snapped. Sorry that some of them have blurry parts, but I didn’t noticed that the lens was dirty! I will pay more attention to that the next time.

Have a beautiful evening guys,

Xo, G.

RANDOM PHOTOGRAPHY

GET LUCKYThis is the only car air  freshener I ever bought and this just because it was a four-leaf clover.

SKY & BIRDS Spring in Paris. About 8pm.
While taking a walk with my sis and niece, I couldn’t resist the urge to take a picture of these ‘agitated’ birds flying back and forth like in the Hitchcock movie.
It was beautiful to look at, but we anyways walked quickly towards the house…
you never know! ^^

FLOWERSIn my garden in Croatia.
It was the beginning of Spring, the flowers were beautiful, the light was perfect and … click !
It is my favorite picture actually.

CAT I am so in love with this Parisian cat!
While I was taking picture after picture, he stayed still, stared at me the whole time and even after I left he didn’t move an inch.
Cats are crazy.

LEAFSimply a leaf.

BIRDFreedom.
Ironically, I am afraid of flying with airplanes but if I could have one magical power, it would be flying.

CAT 2This is Miki, my sister’s cat descendant.
He is living a happy life somewhere in ‘wild’ Croatia.

SCORPION I came across this little bastard this summer in Krk, Croatia.
So my first reaction was to find as much information as possible on Croatian scorpions and on  Wiki they said there are not very dangerous. Pfiou!
I slept badly that night though…

Hope you’ll enjoy my pics guys!
