Snow white?

I was glad to find out that not only me is facing the dillema - is it ok to wear white in winter? It seems like for many, white is a colour of summer that should not step in to the winter wardrobe. But I was so tempted to wear white these past two months... Once I read this and this, I feel so much better now!

Andrew Bannecker

Very cute pictures by Andrew Bannecker, whose work I got to know thanks to a friend and talented graphic designer, Maciek.



There is even a patriotic accent

Great concert!

Yesterday we went spontanously to a concert of Paula & Karol,  a band that I haven't heard about before. I was so happy we did go, as the band is just so talented, happy and enthusiastic, that this whole happiness is passed on to all the audience.
Happy music, have a listen! (there is a lot of "pa-pa-ra-ram" at the beginning :))

Very valid proof for my intuition

I always thought that the so called women intuition does not really exist. I mean, it does exist but just not for me. Well last week has proven otherwise. I was going home from work via a shopping mall (please dont laugh, that is actually my way back home!) and I had this impulse to visit Mango as I havent been there since summer(!) When I approached the shop, a shop assistant came over and informed me that (1) all the stuff is 30% off for the next 1 hour, (2) I can win a trip to Madrid if I participate in a contest, (3) I can have a make up done by specialists in the shop. Well. Forget about (2) and (3) but (1)!!! What do you think? I think I love my women intuition that made me go to Mango at that exact day and that exact time...:)

Autumnish

We went for a walk yesterday and found a variety of beautiful leaves. We have taken them home and I used them for an autumnish bouquet :) Do you like it?

Cafe Arka

There is this little town nearby Krakow with cute old houses, typical architecture and, as it turns out, absolutely lovely cafe Arka. The owners are artists, so no wonder the place is decorated with taste and fantasy! I would recommend everyone who is around to step by and check it out.

Sicily - best bed&breakfest

Out of all the hotels and B&B's that we stayed in, there was one place that we particularly enjoyed. It was near Agrigento, in the south of Sicily, where the famous site of Greek temples is located. It was an extremely peaceful place, filled with animals and extraordinary charm. Not only were we welcomed with a bottle of excellent house wine, but also we could use the swimming pool at the time of our arrival (midnight!) and even the bathroom was so welcoming: it had a complete shaving set for the gentleman and the so needed in the trip cosmetic pads for the lady! This was the first thing in the morning you would see after opening the doors:
And this is a couple of shots of the area around the Bed and Breakfest.

Sicily - Vulcano

I think out of the whole holidays, the most beautiful place was the Vulcano island, one of the Eolian islands. As the name properly suggests, the island is pretty much a volcano. It is not active any more, therefore it is possible to go up to the canion and look inside! I loved the amazing views from the top of it! ...you just need to get used to the more or less intensive smell of sulfur....:)

Out of the topic

As my dear nephew Leon has achieved something absolutely amazing - made his first steps this week - let me share with you this little video :) Try to ignore the annoying high tones of my voice that somehow I use whenever I see Le :)

Sicily - Palermo

We have actually only seen Palermo for a couple of hours, on the way to Cefalu, as we have read and heard that it is too big city to sightsee with pleasure in such high temperatures. However, I tend to disagree. Palermo might be a big city, but it has a lot of charm, and as I will strongly discourage you from visiting Catania (to me quite a dirty and unsafe place), I will say that Palermo is worth to see!

Sicily - west coast

After my return from holidays I needed to go through over a thousand of pictures that we made in Sicily. Now its time to share with you some of them :) I will follow the example of my friend Aude and share them in parts. Our trip was planned as a circle around the island, starting on the west coast, in Trapani. Below our first day of going around in the area.

Holiday time, baby!

As I m in a radical need of holidays (don't we just all think that?) I'm really happy tomorrow my vacation starts. Sicily...:)

Happy birthday Kimmy!

My dear friend Kimmy is celebrating her birthday today. Kimmy, I wish I was there to congratulate you and eat birthday cheesecake together but instead, I am sending you lots of love from Poland!



PS: M is sending (not love) but best wishes too :)

Wedding stuff


It's Saturday and we have a wedding to attend today. I'm so happy because I have shoes to go to the wedding with. Last week was a nightmare of shoe searching and it was killing me because, in fact, there is lots and lots of perfectly beautiful party shoes. However, all of them have heels and I should avoid heels like devil sacred water unless I want to distroy some ceilings on my way.

Hence, I was dealing with tons of ballerinas that made me look like I'm wearing slippers. Anyways, after fourth day in the shopping mall (believe me, I can have enough of it) I found the shoes. They are not the best in class, but they will do. And I m so happy that in the LAST POSSIBLE SHOP, that I NEVER go to, was ONE pair of these shoes in MY SIZE and in SUITABLE COLOUR.

Destiny. What do we know about it.

Talking about weddings, check out HERE. Coolest blog on weddings ever. Thats where the pic above comes from.

PS: pictures of outfit will probably follow:)

Have you had a good weekend?

I do hope so! I had a lovely one. Saturday was all about how lazy it can get. And Sunday we went for little hike nearby from Krakow. Good times! The mood we had in the car on the way there can be pretty much described by the song I'm posting below :)



And here are some photos from the weekend, pls excuse the quality, I only had my iPhone with me

Loft37

There is this very cool website Loft37 where you can make your own shoes. You choose the type of shoes, the colours of each shoe piece and on top of this, you can personalize the shoe with own wishes + embroided signature. Isn't that cute? And all of it for around 150 eur (inc shipping and personalization!)

Just like that...

Just like that, this weekend was full of very cool events in Krakow.
For example, Friday evening, when we went to see laser lights animations shown on the walls of the Wawel castle. It looked absolutely amazing. I have one of the animations on the video below - it does not trully mirrors how it looked in reality, but have a look to check out yourself. The beginning of the video is more dark than the rest, so be patient when watching :)

Busy busy busy

I think I have been even more busy than I usually am (don't ask me with what - I have absolutely no idea) - so I'm sorry for being so quiet. Updates are to come, but in the time being I just wanted to share with you some very cool photos of Christopher Boffoli that I know thanks to my dear friend Kim.

What do you know about cloud computing?

If the answer to the question is not satisfactory for you, watch the video below. I saw it sometime ago via our corporate communication, but luckily it is also available via youtube.

Makes me smile every time I watch it and remember how fast everything around us is changing. Great job ACN.

So much sun in Cinque Terre

The way the pictures were made I think show well how warm the place was... and sunny... and peaceful... and beautiful... and cosy...
Well. I did like it.

Lazy Saturday


It was a lovely Saturday yesterday with lots of wandering around Kraków. Plus, I was extremely happy I could finally put on my happy-colour trousers :)
