"When you don't dress like everyone else, you don't have to think like everyone else." - Iris Apfel.

I've been following for a while now and I felt like it was about time I stated my love. I love Elisa and Lily's approach on personal style and I love how open-minded and nonjudgmental their approach is. 

Stand Alone In Your Own Skin is no exception: it's a tribute to diversity. But it's also a reminder of sorts: style should be about self-expression, it should be about you, nothing else.

'With Hopi Indian braids, Sarah has a consuming romance with American history; Armina, a coy modesty in a linen frock that expresses her love for her Muslim faith that keeps her grounded; Arpana, a wealth of eclectic emotions in a sequin mini and Tokyo kimono, revealing her need to distract herself from the recent death of her parents; and Elena, a brazen willingness to break from her solemn Soviet roots by wearing anything, like the gaudiest of necklaces with a fuzzy, eye-popping floral vest.'

Dùn Èideann

How's your weekend is a collective photography project run by the awesome Laura & Joanne. It's actually only one of the projects created by the awesome duo. You can visit Half/Half for a good dose of inspiration.

I've already contributed to How's your weekend? twice. And I was very happy when I found out that the project was finally back up! Go and have a look, hopefully you'll love it as much as I do.

And then Edinburgh stole my heart.

Edinburgh is a beauty! When we decided to go there (or to be more accurate: when Anaïs decided we'd go there for a week-end), we knew very little about the capital of Scotland. We were both busy bees looking for a mini vacation together. As Anaïs lives in Ireland and I live in Norway, Edinburgh sounded like the perfect place to meet up. And man, what a happy choice!

Edinburgh is a beauty: History is around every corner, Scots are among the nicest people I've ever met and we went from surprise to surprise as Edinburgh was nothing like what we expected.

After only a couple of days, we found ourselves looking at real estate prices and joking about getting a flat. We had brunch every morning at the same café before spending hours exploring the city and treating ourselves to a fantastic dinner. Heads up to my Wallpaper City Guide for great recommendations.
