Though I love the warm weather of Summer, Fall just has something about it – a certain je ne sais quoi that I fall in love with all over again this time, each year. I don’t know if it’s the warmth of snuggling inside by the fireplace with a pumpkin spice latte (my favourite), all the beautiful colours when the leaves change or the new comfy fashion styles that come with the changing season. Whatever it is about this season that’s got my heart melting, one thing I know for sure is how much I adore re-vamping my wardrobe to match the cooling weather. I’ve put together some of my recent favourites for you guys that I hope you’ll enjoy shopping with your favourite pumpkin-flavoured snack!
favorites and one that reminds me so much of being a child during the holidays
– it always manages to put me in such a festive mood and not to mention the
aroma is absolutely amazing!
slices. The peels from one orange. Three cinnamon sticks and a tablespoon of
with water along with all of the ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil. It’s
best to designate a saucepan just for aromas as you don’t want to cook with it
later. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer. You can leave to simmer all
day long, just remember to replenish the water when needed. You can store the mixture
in the fridge for up to three days to enjoy later.

Hello everyone! My name is Petros and I’m a Greek architect, designer and blogger, proud owner of Hommie. I’m so excited being part of Anna-Rosa’s guest-blogging posts, featuring an easy and minimal DIY clothing rack.
Copper is still a strong and beautiful trend in home design and decoration. I think there’s something in copper’s colour that makes it so elegant and stylish. My inspiration came by several DIYs I found online, using copper plumbing accessories and round wooden sticks. I really like the simplicity and the scandinavian-design feeling of these two materials, when combined.
Get round wooden sticks from your local hardware store. Calculate how many pieces you need for your DIY project in order to buy enough supplies. Hardware stores usually have wooden sticks cut in standard length, for being easily transportable. The ones I got, for example, were 3m long each.
Cut the sticks into two 125cm long pieces, two 70cm long pieces, four 20cm long pieces and six 10cm long pieces.
Connect the wooden sticks with the copper pieces, as shown in diagram.
Check if the clothing rack is straight and steady and glue all the pieces together.
Notes: Remember to check the diameter of the copper accessories. It has to be the same with the diameter of the wooden sticks. The ones I used for this DIY project were 23mm.
You can adjust the size of your clothing rack according to your needs. Change the length of the sticks marked as (b.) in the diagram, if you want it to be taller or shorter. Change the length of the sticks marked as (a.) in the diagram, to adjust its width.
I’m guest posting for Anna-Rosa while she is away with friends traveling and
having fun. So glad she invited me to her beautiful blog and because we have a
love for fashion i wanted to share some TRIP BASICS for travelers that want to
carry light but don’t loose style. I will pack basic pieces that match together
and can be layered up, don’t forget to travel chic with some fashion sneakers
with fun patterns to match with solid colors on other garments. Some hip
accessories like sunglasses, iPod cases, and little bags to put all your
cosmetics and bath essentials. I will recommend a light notebook to keep all
inspiration track and places to visit too. And a big bag to carry all things
for long walks and keep camera and wallet safe.
next time you travel you do it with style and fun.
Paradissi and I’m here to fill up for sweet Anna-Rosa while
she’s enjoying some well deserved time off. I know Anna-Rosa is a dearest fan
of cooking (like, please, how delicious does this salad look?) so I thought I’d prepare for you a post
that combines both the culinary essences of smell and taste with the visual one
a decent interior designer and architect (hello Anna-Rosa) swears by. That
means delicious recipes prepared in equally astonishing kitchens that, of
course, get along perfectly in style and vibe. Like fresh vegetables and sleek
surfaces, creamy cheese and whitewashed spaces, crisped bread and unrefined
woods. Does it make any sense to you? I feel that the surroundings play a vital
role for ones health and inspiration. Yes, no junk food is allowed in the above
delicacies, you can find the links to the recipes here:
say hi 🙂 Thanks Anna-Rosa for having me!
Don’t leave your camera behind for the sake of comfort, you’ll end up regretting it an hour into your day. Plan ahead, bring a larger bag to comfortably tote your gadgets. Or invest in a camera strap you won’t be embarrassed to wear all day. We love this one from Tanner Goods.
An easy change
Guess what, Italy can get really hot… Depending on your traveling dates, it can be shirt sticking, face dripping kinda hot. Yuck. A smart traveler brings an extra shirt, or even a complete change of clothes. This will save you come 9 o’clock when the sun has gone down and your looking for a nice place to eat dinner. We realize this isn’t the most glamorous tip, but trust us… you’ll want to freshen up a bit after walking about all day in the hot sun. We love basics that can easily be tossed on with just about anything. Everlane has the perfect pieces for him and her.
Phone charger / adapter
Your phone will die and it will die fast. Even if your battery is fully charged, the constant yelping, gps locating and instagramming (all while you’re roaming in a foreign country) will surely drain your battery. Fortunately there are tons of places to charge, like outlets on trains or in train stations. Just make sure you have the right adapter for your cables. We love these cord tacos to keep everything neat in your bag.
Lastly, you want to leave some room. If your packed to the brim, you’re going to be very sad when you can’t fit that gorgeous pair of leather sandals into your bag. Roaming new cities often leads to shopping. Leave space for it!
