For some unknown reason, while it was warm and sunny in Latvia (+20!!!!!! Fair? I don't think so!), rain was the aesthetic choice of London (surprise? hmmm). Kind of reminded of Midsummer... well minus the warm weather hahaaa. But it didn't stop us from colouring eggs, inviting some friend over for a brunch and swinging like we used to do back in kindergarden. 

We did tell about some Latvian traditions to our guests and although Alexa (in the picture) and Elizabeth are sort of convinced that traditionally Latvians run around naked and make kids in the nature (again a bit mixed up with Midsummer) they really are keen on visiting this country. (Mission accomplished!!!

Anyways, hope you had a cracking day. And if for one reason or another you didn't managed to celebrate. Guess what... tomorrow is the second Easter. And we love to CELEBRATE! #more_is_more

My holidays were SOOOO GOOOOD that it is even hard to explain. 

First BERLIN with Marissa. I mean as long as you have a good friend even a desert is going to be fun! Then 24 hour bus ride (in which I thought I will have time to rethink my life (twice at least) but all I managed was watch two movies and sleep, sleeeeep, SLEEP).

And then HOME. They say for a reason that there is no place like home. I spent most of the time in the forest or at the seaside but, you know, that was the whole point. Not only it made me want to go back to those summers of high school where all we did was orienteering and traveling but also not want to leave (like at all). But DUTY CALLS a.k.a. TERM 3 starts in a few days so I am back in London.

Nevertheless, one thing is clear. It is time to find a place where to do orienteering here. You say impossible, I say WATCH ME!

As these holidays are all about going INTO THE WILD or at least some more sporty attitude. I thought that introducing you to Aleta would be right in place. Not only she looks like from Addidas ad campaign but is also suuuuupper fun! #ain't_latvians_cool

Welcome to Latvia. Welcome HOME.

'INTO THE WILD' is going to become the motto of these holidays. First day - forest, second day seaside... I mean wonderful! Can I have holidays for the rest of my life? 

But, frankly, anyone who has been living in London more than a single month will understand the EMERGENCY of spending time in the nature. A serious SOS situation, right?

And of course a friend in crime is more than a need but friend with a car is a privilege! I have both in one person - Anete! So today we traveled to Jurmala - a city where I was born and the seaside where I spent my summers.

I guess Berliners are not as used to getting their photo taken as Londoners so they do get a little bit shy.  But there is nothing to be shy about and here comes my attempt of capturing the street style of this city.

Every other day Berlin spoils us with such a summery weather that we are ready to through all our clothing in the air and get some serious (possibly red) tan. In the meantime of this "too hot to handle" activities we also found some "too cool to not go in" cafes. 

I guess the retro interiors are a thing here in Berlin... the same as the awkward graffitis on every wall, corner, column, doors and.. and. Well you got the idea - spray paint everywhere. It is like hello I was here and here and here and well here as well. So my theory was that you must get them for the birthday if you live in Berlin hahahahaaa! Alles Gute zum Geburtstag here you go gelb und rot!

Alright, alright enough jokes and back to cafes! So this CHAIRLANDIA (how I officially or not named it after visiting) is cafe/shop that not only sells these chairs but also lets you sit on them in their cafe. Oh yeah the place is called Matcha Bar and it is not far from Maurer Park. 

Anyways there are like million things I still need to tell you about but just waaaaiiit ffooorr it!
