Festive and Zesty Home Tweak





There is no better way to welcome December than with some festive decorations. And since I love the scent of winter citrus, I’m planning to take Nathalie’s and Matilda’s tip and create one of those beautiful clementine-clover ribbon decorations for our kitchen window. It’s simple, understated yet totally festive, plus it will make the whole space smell incredible throughout the month.

Fancy making one too?

P.S: Also, clementine candlesthis nifty little trick and a must-try winter snack.
P.P.S: Plus, stay tuned for a swoonworthy GIVEAWAY later today!

On Reading...









Do  you read? I have a friend who can dive into a great book literally in a middle of a busy subway or a noisy café like no big deal at all. I, on the other hand, find reading most enjoyable in the privacy of my own home when I can shut the door and enjoy the soothing sounds of jazz in the background.

Which brings me to Steve McCurry, the incredible photographer who documents honest and universal moments across cultures like no one else. His latest project is all about capturing people from all walks of life getting utterly lost in a story. His aim is to showcase how seductive and universal reading is and how the act of reading spans all boundaries and bring us all together.

How brilliantly insightful. Don’t you think?

P.S: Also, family table and those iconic shots and people behind them.
P.P.S: Plus, looking at art.

When Roses Die





Cheers to Monday, dearies! It's SO good to be back! How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Did you eat yourself silly? I've spent the last couple of days getting myself healthy and I'm so glad to finally feel like a human again who actually craves coffee, can sit for more than a few minutes without feeling ill and is positively hungry for some real food.

So, let's get this week started with those somewhat romantic images of dying roses. Corina recently captured those gems because she can't resist the fading beauty and subtle smell that comes in the last stage of their life.

I've never been a huge fan of roses, but seeing them like this makes me fall in love with them on so many levels. You?

P.S: Pickled rose petals and this series of decaying flower.

A little note...

Monday, November 21, 2016

...Many of you noticed that I haven't posted my 'weekend jollies' on Friday and wrote in. For that thank you so much. You always surprise me with your kindness and sweetness. The reason for my absence is that I caught a really nasty case of stomach bug that doesn't seem to be going away easily...

So, I'm on a bed rest since Friday afternoon, and I'll be there for another day or two...So please bear with me till I can get this thing out of my system. I should be better by mid of the week, so please check back for new posts...

Miss you all and thank you for being such gems and checking up on me.

Diana, xo

Psst: I'm also extending the jewelry giveaway's deadline till after Thanksgiving. So don't miss your change to enter...

Juniper, The Fox










Meet Juniper, a one-year old tame red fox, who does everything with a smile. This little rascal loves to run around, makes any excuse to sneak in a tiny nap, wears hoodies like a pro and is always up for an adventure, especially when it involves her best friend, Moose (who is a dog).
