What I Found #8

I haven't done this in a while so I had a lot of things waiting around on my computer. There are so many wonderful items out in the world and something new comes out every day that I don't even know how to keep track of it. Hope you like the list & I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (we don't celebrate it here) and got tons of pretty presents! 

What I Wore: Pastel Colors & Polka Dots

Dress: koton
Sweater: from my cousin
Tights: thrifted
Bracelet: c/o baublebar (they don't have this one anymore!)
Necklace: handmade/blogged HERE

I'm in love with my new sweater that my cousin gave me. There were other colors but I didn't think I would feel comfortable having my neck closed all the time so I only took this one. I wish I had taken the others because it doesn't bother me at all and it is really comfortable. Also, it keeps me insanely warm!

I really love this bracelet from Baublebar. I got it from them a while back. Me and my sister love it so much because it is so beautiful. It has a giraffe print in gold, I think that is a brilliant idea.

P.S: It started snowing today and everywhere is covered already.

DIY: Rainbow Lights Necklace!

Hey guys, yesterday I had the lights up at our house for new years and some of the lights were burned out from last year so while changing them I thought why not use the burned ones for something. So today I looked around the house for a necklace chain and found some in my necklace box. I chose the one with little holes because I thought it would be much better. If you like it and want to do it, don't hesitate it really looks pretty. And if you have seen this here for the first time please tell me so & if you try it yourself I would really like to see the photograps so I can check out how awesome yours came out! 
As you can see they all have burned spots but thats okay. If that really bothers you you can paint over them. So, you see those wires? That is what you'll be using to hang them on the chain, so even the holes out and put the wires in and tighten them. After the tightening cut the wires so they don't hurt you! 
Hope you like my tutorial and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Istanbul on Film

Such a hectic time I am going through right now. Exams, exams, exams. But before all of this I went and got myself a film camera and I wanted to test it out before the weather got unbearably cold. The moment I got my camera I walked around and took some photos of my wonderful city. If you ever do visit Istanbul please let me know, it would be really awesome to talk about it. (Of course these photographs involve only a tiny tiny tiny tiny..part of Istanbul)
Have a lovely day! Oh and also have you realized my new social media buttons? Lauren from Your Title Here made them for me! I love how she played with the colors :)

Book of Nature: Pressing Plants

Probably the cheesiest title I have ever come up with but it is the truth. This is my book of nature. It is where I keep my lovely pressed plants. I have been pressing plants my whole life (who hasn't) but it has never accured to me until this year that I could actually keep them forever on these wonderful pages.
The plants that I have collected have always somehow dissappeared from the pages of the heavy books I kept them in but now I take them into my precious little notebook and play around with them to see how they would look good, or how they would not break (believe me they are so fragile at this point). Right now these are the only plants I have gotten this Autumn. Maybe in the future I will stumble upon more beautiful plants that I could fill up the pages with. 
 This is probably my favorithe page right now. I love that when I collected that plant it was closer to a blackish purple but now it is becoming lighter and much more beautiful. So here are a couple close-up shots.
 If you have free time in your hands, this is definitely an activity to fill it up with. Oh and thank you for all the wonderful comments you have been leaving! You guys are my favorite :)

What I Found #7: Empty Casket

I found out about Empty Casket a while back and I really love their pieces. I think that they are very original and I kinda wish I had all of them! So that is why I dedicate this post to this shop and I think that you all will love it!
Silver Deer Skull (This is my favorite!)

What I Wore: Stripes of Autumn

Sweater: Thrifted
Shirt: USPolo
Bracelet: c/o Twillypop
Purse: Blanco
Hair Clip: Thrifted

I have my own personal style that I would like to share with you. You might or might not find it fashionable. I tend to dress according to my mood or the weather of course. Since it is Autumn I wanted to take some photographs of one of my outfits that I certainly enjoyed wearing. I find sweaters really comfortable and I just can't stop wearing them. The other thing I wanted to say that the bracelet I'm wearing is probably my favorite. Twillypop sent it over to me a while back (I won it in a giveaway) and I just couldn't stop wearing it! I find the chevron idea very clever :)
Also, I have to say that the heart shaped purse is one of my favorite purses because it is very tiny and whenever I don't feel like bringing along anything but my cell phone, lipstick & some money I tend to use this purse! It was also a present from my sister she got it from Spain which makes it even more valuable.

PS: Have you realized my awesome new hair. My sister & my mom did it for me!

Collection: Pencils

I did share my Pok√©mon collection a while back and that is probably one of my biggest collections. I started collecting pencils when I was in 4th grade. That was the time when I moved to New York from Istanbul. I recieved a pencil on my birthday in school and I never used it (but I do not know which one it is) so I started to collect. After that I would get a pencil for every occasion like holidays, birthdays, field trips, good grades etc.

Summer Vacation on Film

You guys know that I like traveling by now so this post isn't really a surprise. I had a 10 day vacation over the summer in Bodrum, Turkey. It was pretty awesome we took some photographs and had lots of fun. These photos I'm going to share are taken with a smena 8m. It is a fully manual camera that was given to me by my grandmother. 
Workers at the hotel, they were really really friendly! :)
You can find some of these on my Flickr page. Also I should mention that this is in order from bottom to top, so the last photo would be one of the firsts that we took and the first photo with the fisherman is taken on our way back. 
PS: I'm on Bloglovin now! Follow if you'll like, it is located on the left side of my blog! :)

Rome: Part 3

On the last post Rome/2 I took you to Vatican City and today I'm taking you to other wonderful places in Rome. We didn't have much time to see a lot of places in Italy but even going around in Rome made us feel like we were seeing much more than we had imagined. It is such a wonderful place I wish all of you could go one day!
The guys here were really funny. It is pretty obvious in this photo that they are crazy!
Europe is nothing with out Nutella to go!
At our last night we bought lots of souvenirs for friends and family. I bought a mask from Rome, but not this one! Mine is pink.  
PS: This is the end of our trip. After this we went back to Valencia and stayed for 2 more days and headed back to Istanbul!
