Moments in Pleasure: Bodrum

I’ve been the worst blogger so far, not posting anything for days. But we are in our summer house in Bodrum and I haven’t been doing anything else than lying on the beach, eating, drinking and enjoying the good company I have here. Monday we will be in Mykonos and I promise to post more photos soon… Happy Saturday everybody πŸ™‚

Son zamanlarda cok kotu bir blogger oldugumun farkindayim, gunlerdir tek bir post bile yapmadim. Ama Londra’nin kotu havasindan ve sikintili sinav donemlerinden sonra Bodrum suan benim icin bir cennet. Guneslenmek, denize girmek, yemek icmek ve arkadaslarimin keyfini cikarmak disinda birsey yaptigim soylenemez. Pazartesi akami Mikanos’ta olacagiz ve daha cok resim koymaya calisacagim. Herkese iyi haftasonlari! πŸ™‚

If I Lay Here

Good morning everyone! I have a flight to Bodrum tonight at 20 (finally! πŸ™‚ ). Yesterday I enjoyed the food & good company in my grandparents’ house. We went to Bayramoglu to my grandparents’ summer house and then to Haris Alexiou concert with my family & their friends. Everyday I spend in Turkey I realize how much I missed sun and hot weather! I’m not even in the mood to complain about humidity πŸ™‚ Here are some pictures of yesterday.

Bu aksam 8 ucagiyla Bodrum’a gidiyoruz. Burada gecirdigim hergun sicagi ve gunesi ne kadar ozledigimi farkediyorum. Daha nem hakkinda soylenmeye vakit bile bulunamadim yani πŸ™‚ Neyse, dun Baramoglu’na anneannem ve dedemin yazligina (muthis yemekler Londra’nin son gunlerinde ruyama giriyordu), oradan da Haris Alexiou konserine gittik. Iste dun cekilmis bazi fotograflar.

Summer Wedding

Today we went to a wedding. It was one of the weddings that I had the most fun. The bride was full of energy – didn’t take a breath the whole night. The theme was country wedding, and it was very beautiful – all white and pink. I wish a lifetime of happiness to the beautiful bride and the groom.

Bugun cok keyifli bir yaz dugunune gittik. Hersey cok cok guzeldi, en eglendigim ve dansettigim dugunlerden biriydi. Gelin ve damadin enerjisi herkese yansidi, gelin bir saniye bile oturmadi diyebilirim. Tema, kir dugunu temasiydi ve hersey bu temaya gore hazirlanmisti. Muzik, renkler, balonlar, cicekler hersey birbirinden guzeldi! Dunya guzeli gelinimize ve damadina omur boyu mutluluklar diliyorum!

Evos β™₯ Ahmet Engagement Shoot

It’s here, finally! For those who don’t know, I must say this again – I’m getting married on 7th of January!!! πŸ™‚ Ahmet and I have been dating since 2003 – so that makes 8 years, easy math πŸ™‚ He is my favorite person in the world and the person I have the most fun with – (kind of the same thing). So I consider myself very lucky, being in a relationship with such a beautiful person. Now being able to spend the rest of my life with him makes me feel like – I don’t know, no words to describe I guess πŸ™‚

Engagement shoot is not very popular in Turkey – however I think it will be πŸ™‚ It is basically a photo shoot made before the wedding, to be used during the wedding, send to guests, family & friends, and also it’s a good album to have and keep for the rest of your life.Β Here is our engagement shoot that we had 2 weeks ago with our wonderful photographer Rik Pennington. Rik was very helpful and made it very easy for both of us (if we consider Ahmet not being comfortable with his pictures taken for 2 hours straight). It was a LOVELY day in Regents Park. I think we were very lucky because the weather in London has been awful in the last two weeks and that was probably one of the very few days we had sun. Here are some of my favorite shots. Tell me please which one is your favorite because we’re considering to use one of them for our invitation cards. (it’s still sounds extremely different & fancy to say “OUR invitation cards” πŸ™‚ ). Anyway, I am waiting for your comments!

Apple For A Good Cause

There is a part in all of us that wants to contribute to the world while consuming. From that reason, brand + NGO cooperations or fair trade certified products have been so popular in recent years. Starbucks began to sell fair trade certified coffee, Marks & Spencer joined ACEV to sell products that contributes to the NGO and McDonald‘s has little see-through RMHC donation boxes in front of its cashiers for you to “not waste” but “spend” your changes for a very good reason – “change a child’s life“. All these big brands have definitely made significant impact for the ones in need. One of the most successful brand – NGO collabration campaigns is without a question “RED“. Red is an idea that believes in collective help to make little changes in the world. Red worked with iconic brands like Nike and Armani, and generated over $170 million fund since 2006. I’m sure many of you are already aware of the wonderful campaign of RED with Apple. But in case you don’t know, here is a wonderful product you can purchase (for those who own an Ipad2 :)) and make a difference in the world.

Hepimizin bir tarafi harcama yaparken, bir yandan da birseylere katkida bulunmak istiyor. Iste bu yuzden adil ticaret dedigimiz (fair trade) sertifikali urunlerin satisi ya da buyuk markalarin yardim kuruluslariyla olan ortak calismalari gun gectikce populerlesiyor. Starbucks yillardir fair trade sertifikali kahve satiyor, Marks&Spencer Turkiye’de mukemmel bir kurulus olan ACEV‘le ortaklasa bir kampanya yurutuyor ve ACEV’in urunlerini satiyor, McDonald’s kasalarinda “bir cocugun hayatini degistirin” kampanyasina katki saglayabileceginiz RMHC bagis kutularindan var. Butun bu buyuk markalar, son yillarda buyuk paralar toplayarak ihtiyaci olanlara verdi, ve dunyanin bircok yerinde kucuk de olsa bir fark yaratmayi basardi. Bu kampanyalarin en basarililarindan biri suphesiz “RED” kampanyasi. Red, kucuk guclerinde birleserek buyuyebilecegini, ve buyuk farklar yaratabilecegine inanan basit bir fikirden dogmus. RED, Nike ve Armani gibi dunyanin en buyuk markalariyla calisti. 2006 yilindan beri $170 milyonu asan bir gelir elde etti ve Afrika’da cok insanin hayatini degistirdi. Eminim bircogunuz RED ve Apple isbirliginden haberdarsiniz. Eger degilseniz de, Ipad2’si olanlar – iste size alabileceginiz harika bir urun!

Hello the new “it” bag, – YSL chyc cabas!!! Even got in style.com‘s radar, this bag is without a question most popular baby in town. It’s sheepskin leather, size and magnetic Y closure are everything you could ask for in a city bag! It can be bohemian and also classic. Starting from $1,995, you need to decide which color you want the most very carefully because all of them are gorgeous! Celebrities like Sienna Miller and Leighton Meester already have one.

Neon

Our best friends in London Emma and John are going back to Greece for a month tomorrow. And when they come back to London we will have only 4-5 days before we pack everything and go back to Turkey permanently. Although we are visiting them in Mykonos in the beginning of August ( !!! :)) we consider this day as our last one in London. We will be in Ahmet’s place which has been “the home” for all of us for the whole year. We will cook crepes & waffles, play cards, drink and chat for hours as we always did. We had a lovely group here and it’s now so sad to know that we’re leaving here very soon. Anyway, I have a lot of things to do in Turkey: there is a wedding to plan (!) and I have done nothing about it yet – even the thought of it can easily freak me out right now πŸ™‚

Londra’daki en yakin arkadaslarimiz Emma ve John yarin 1 ayligina Yunanistan’a gidiyorlar. Agustos basinda Mikanos’ta Emma’nin yazligina hep beraber kalmaya gidiyoruz (!!! πŸ™‚ ) ama yine de Londra’da bu grupla beraber son gecemiz sayilir. Bu yuzden bu aksami ozel bir kutlamayla gecirelim istedik. Butun sene boyunca hepimize ev sahipligi yapmis olan Ahmet’in evinde waffle ve krep yapip, yiyip icip kart oynayip konusarak butun geceyi gecirecegiz, -butun sene yapmis oldugumuz gibi:) Londra’dan ve buradaki hayatimizdan yakinda tamamen kopacagimizi bilmek huzun verici ama evimi, ailemi ve Istanbul’daki arkadaslarimi cook ozledim. Ayrica yapmam gereken cook is var – koskoca bir dugun planlamam lazim ve daha pek ucundan tutmus degilim. Bunu dusunmek bile beni suan korkutuyor ve biran once herseyi hazirlamaya baslamak istiyorum.

Splash of Color

Yesterday night I chose a colorful & floral outfit for a dinner with friends. Many of you might think “is this colorful?” – but yes it is colorful to me since I mostly wear black, grey or white from head to toe πŸ™‚ Anyway, today we’re heading off to Westfield shopping mall thanks to Selin and her perfect way of describing the Milkshakes there! Another 10000 calories to gain before Bodrum and Mykonos. Yaay!! πŸ™‚

Dun aksam arkadaslarimizla gittigimiz yemege renkli & cicekli bir kiyafet giydim. Birusuru insan “bu mu renkli” diyebilir ama genelde bastan asagi siyah gri ya da beyaz giyinen ben icin bu oldukca renkli πŸ™‚ Neyse, birazdan Westfield alisveris merkezine gidiyoruz ve hedefimiz Selin’in ballandira ballandira anlattigi Milkshake’ler!!! Mikanos ve Bodrum tatilimizden once almak icin 10000 kalori daha! Ne mutlu bize!! πŸ™‚

There are many looks that you can inspire from – these women are never wrong!
