Winter Trend: Military Style Jacket

If you happen to have a military-style jacket stored somewhere at the back of your closet, you should dust it off and start wearing it immediately! Yup, this mid-winter is all about layering it with silk blouses, cashmere sweaters or simple cotton tees.

Btw: I just found two that seem ideal for right now. What do you think? Thumbs up or down?

P.S: Speaking of blouses...
P.P.S: Plus, this winters' go-to hat.

Snowy Kyoto

Stunning! This past weekend the city of Kyoto in Japan got an unexpected, yet totally welcome treat in the form of a fresh blanket of snow, turning this beautiful place into a white wonderland!

Snow is a big deal in Kyoto anyway, but especially when it stays long enough for people to actually enjoy it. Now I totally fancy a trip there, you? Have you been to Japan?

P.S: Remember this deer city or that awesome gem?
P.P.S: Also, don't miss our beautiful print GIVEAWAY this week!

Secret to a Happy Life

Meet Tao Porchon-Lynch, the 98-year-old yoga instructor who just became my new hero! She has been practicing yoga for the past 75 years and recently made a little video for Athleta where she shared her wisdom on happiness, yoga and life in general.

Besides the obvious, the incredible truth is that Tao is the true example of what our life can become if we make a conscious effort to be happy, healthy and balanced…

Here is a little yoga tip that she shared in one the follow-up interviews and it really stuck with me:

'If you do postures without the breathing you will never change anything...When people are known to breathe properly they can survive and do anything. Nothing is impossible when you are in tune with your breath'.


P.S: Have you seen her TEDx talk from a few years ago? Brilliant! Plus, tons more on this wonderful lady here...
P.P.S: A beautiful GIVEAWAY is coming up later today!
