It's half term! It is also Autumn! I love this season of the year. As much as I do enjoy hardly wearing any clothes, there is a point when I really feel like getting my winter coats out. Don't get me wrong, layers of clothing is something atrocious in my opinion; it's uncomfortable, makes you look larger and you can never predict whether you put too many or too little on. In contrast, I love to cuddle up in front of the fire place with a cup of tea... yum! It's the time of the year when you can still wear a few of your summer clothes such as tops, ballerinas and dresses. However, you twist the look by making it look more cosy and 'Autumny'. The warm colours of the season are absolutely incredible! This morning, my mum came out with a very funny point, being that my cat matches the background and the leaves (he's ginger). Technically, he's my sister's cat, but she abandoned him and made a very bad choice of leaving it with my parents.. not the wisest idea... she is never getting him back! Back to topic, I have debated with myself which is my favourite season of the year. I must mention that I'm a winter baby, therefore snow reminds me of my birthday, which means I might have a very bias opinion. I still haven't figured it out.. For all those who are strongly opinionated and think summer is the best season, let me remind you of how amazing it feels to ski on fresh snow, hors piste, in the sun while listening to music. OR enjoy a hot chocolate in the fresh air while it's sunny and golden outside. If you still disagree with me, I give up.. I am now believe you are a very stubborn person.For this outfit I chose very cold colours, since we're getting close to winter, yet we still have the privilege of getting to take pleasure out of those extra few degrees. In which case we able to wear open shoes and no hats, gloves and scarves. YAY! I love combining an outfit that still requires a jacket, especially in Autumn because this IS the season for trench coats. Furthermore, in my humble opinion those bad boys give you a killer hour-glass body and they are the ultimate elegant piece that is timeless!

There is no place like home! Going back to my origins I am Russian and Belge by passport, however, I am Swiss by heart. My family and I moved here when I was at the age of 4 and since, Switzerland is the place I have always been calling home. When I was younger we would always drive up to the beginning of a hiking spot in the Alps and spend the whole day taking in the scenery and enjoying the wonders of nature. Then again, our goal would always be a delicious Restaurant hidden at the top of the mountain. This time, my best friend Dianah and I went on a wonderful journey starting in Champéry (the best place to ski!), though Portes Du Soleil and walked all the way to Barmaz. The view opens up to a plateaux in the middle of a valley where you can enjoy a national Swiss dish in one of the two restaurants - Cantine Des Dents Blanche and Cantine de Barmaz. Nonetheless, our hiking journey wasn't over yet. Being my stubborn self, I wanted to walk up higher in order to see the snow - let's face it, snow in the middle of summer is quite the experience!

Today was an absolute roller coaster of colours, items and emotions! If you are looking to be absorbed in the urban coherence of a creative wonderland I would definitely recommend Camden Market! The quirky streets of the area will take you on a journey of discovery, individuality and character. I am personally really into the extremes of styles; from goth, to punk, to bohemian, to hipster. I believe that the people who dare to wear such exclusive clothing have some big guts! Not only to shock others in the visual context, but also open up their personality and share that with the world - it's as if they were screaming a massive optical statement. Camden takes you back on a ride of a restro past lifestyle that will guarantee you positive and crazy emotions which you won't want to let go of for at least a couple of hours. As I am writing this I am listening to the legendary Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Guns'n'Roses in comparison to this morning when my iTunes was playing mostly mainstream and minimal. This has to mean something! In my opinion, I just don't want to get back to the modern day of today...somewhat not for the moment. I hardly had time to take photos of Camden because I went there for my lunch break, and also to write a review on the London Rebel pop up shop that opened yesterday. Then again, I should probably also mention, that having to be honest - I got very much carried away by all the most random stuff that was on sale! If you are in the state of craving new amazing jewellery, food or even in the search of a painting to decorate your interior - don't get worked up, because by going there you will find all that you are looking for!
