blonde.black.pink.

Blonde hair. black eye make up. pink lips.

Sari saclar. siyah goz makyaji. pembe dudaklar.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with:

1) Amber Heard. She is just stunning.

2) Coco Rocha and her inspirational blog.

3) Brooklyn Blonde is the my latest blog discovery (yes I know I’m late).

4) My guilty pleasure – watching “The Walking Dead”

5) Soft baked chocolate chunk cookies with my afternoon coffee. i know, i know… 51 days before my wedding… luckily the dress is not that tight.

6) Kelime Avi – (Word Hunt) online game on iPad. Eczaci and Dadaist, how on earth do you do that??? 🙂

london photo diary.

Random shots from our short London trip.

Kisa Londra ziyaretimizden kucuk detaylar.

Remember the boots??

Botlari hatirladiniz mi??

Coffee with friends at Cecconi’s. always a must.

Sparkling Jenny Packham.

Dinner at Nobu.

… and at Le Relais De Venice.

Some leopard details from the trip.

Well of course these photos don’t summarize everything we have done, like: hours of chatting in friends’ house, days of searching a dress for Burcu (to wear at my wedding lalala 🙂 ), and another wonderful Topshop experience, – especially the free personal shopping that makes you save hours of time and tons of energy. Oh how much we miss that store. No other store can fill in that gap of worth-every-penny knits, perfectly fit skinny leggings, easy-to-wear colorful skirts, ‘must-have’ fun blouses and an endless sea of necklaces that easily transform an outfit from blah to BAMm!

Londoners, we envy you!

Tabii ki bu fotograflar asil yaptiklarimizi ozetlemek icin yeterli degil: mesela arkadaslarimizin evinde gecirdigimiz saatler, Burcu’ya dugunumde (!) giymesi icin gunlerce elbise aramamiz, ve tabii ki mukemmel bir Topshop ziyareti daha, -hem de bu sefer hem zaman hem enerji tasarrufu yapmami saglayan bedava “personal shopping” deneyimi ile! Topshop’u ne kadar da ozlemisiz… Baska hicbir dukkan o boslugu dolduramaz. Herseyle kolayca giyilebilen muhtesem kazaklarin, rengarenk eteklerin, uzerinize simsiki oturan skinny pantolonlarin ve bir kiyafetin butun havasini aninda degistiren onlarca kolyenin bir arada bulundugu ve butun bunlarin oldukca uygun fiyatlarda satildigi baska bir yer daha soyler misiniz??

Life.

Life is about how you look at things. Perspective. That’s all that matters.

Hayat herseye nasil baktigimizdan ibaret. Bakis acisi. Tek ihtiyacimiz olan bu.

Eclectic.

Ok it’s time to admit, I am kind of becoming an obsessed person about this whole house decoration thing. Every style I see on every new interior design magazine or blog gives me a whole new idea which rattles around my mind till I sleep, fills my laptop with thousands of pics yet leaves me with nothing in hand. I’ve come to a point where I’m leaning towards everything new I see and lose my own taste (which almost NEVER happens since I’m this “hate it to the core” or “love it to death” kind of girl). But I’m sure of this one thing that I’m currently cherishing the old-inspired items in contemporary, modern decorated spaces. Here is a few. La la la.

Artik kabul etme zamani, ev dekorasyonu konusunda feci bir takintim olusmus durumda. Elime gecen her dekorasyon dergisi ya da kesfettigim her yeni blog aklima yeni fikirler sokuyor, beynimi corba yapiyor ve sonunda bilgisayarimda tonlarca resim ama ellerim bombos misali kalakaliyorum. Sanirim oyle bir noktaya geldim ki, goze hos gozuken herseyi begeniyorum ve yavas yavas kendi zevkimi kaybediyorum (hayati boyunca gordugu herseyi ya “olumune sevmis” ya da “olumune nefret etmis” bir insan olarak bu pek de normal bir durum sayilamaz). Her neyse, binlerce resim arasinda her baktigimda kalbimi hoplatan ortak bir ozellik var ki, o da son derece modern ve yalin ortamlarda goze carpan eski gorunumlu esyalar. Iste birkaci… 

this crystal antique-reminiscent chandelier in this ultra clean kitchen.

bu ultra sade mutfaktaki kristalli antik gorunumlu avize.

or that flawless white couch in this contemporary flat.

ya da bu modern dairedeki beyaz, kusursuz kanepe.

or this golden gilded mirror in this nude colored modern  living room.

ya da bu sade renklerdeki modern salonun altin varakli aynasi.

Well, you kind of get the picture now, right?

Iste simdi biraz demek istedigimi anladiniz, degil mi?

Picture Perfect

As I’m spending almost half of my time looking for inspirations for my new flat, I realized how much I feel connected to some of the photographs in my current house. My mom did a very good job designing some of the old photos (kind of made them like a collage), and now they create a sort of nostalgia you can never find in a new bought item. The photos of loved ones, especially if they are as good as the ones I will show you below, changes the whole mood of the room. I say use them, without hesitation, on basically everywhere.

Su siralar bos vaktimin neredeyse yarisini yeni evimi dekore etmek uzere yeni fikirler bulmaya calisarak geciriyorum. Ve bu sirada tabii ki suanki evimin dekorasyonundan da ilham aliyorum. Farkediyorum ki, bazi eski fotograflar, bulunduklari cercevelerle birlikte oyle guzel koseler olusturmuslar ki, sanki orayi guzellestirmek icin baska hicbir seye gerek yok. Annem ozellikle eski siyah beyaz fotograflari bir tur kolaj havasinda butunlestirerek cok guzel bir is cikardi. Kendi evimde kesinlikle benzerini yapacagim. Eger sizin de sevdiklerinizin, ailenizin boyle guzel kareleri varsa kesinlikle evin heryerinde degerlendirin derim.

Some of our very old photos attached to a metal clipboard with butterfly magnets on my bedroom wall (bought from English home years ago).

Bazi eski resimlerimiz yatak odamdaki metal panoya kelebekli miknatislarla tutturulmus (English home’dan yillar once almistim). 

Picture perfect of my mom and dad when they were in their twenties, in a yacht tour. The frame is located on my tallboy just in front of some white dried flowers. This photo with this frame will come with me where ever I go. I’m in love with it.

Anne ve babamin 20li yaslarindayken bir tekne gezisi sirasinda cekilmis mukemmel resimleri. Sifonyerimin uzerinde kurutumus beyaz ciceklerimin onune yerlestirdim. Bu fotografa bayiliyorum ve cercevesiyle birlikte ben nereye gidersem gelecek. 

Two of our favorite family photos standing on a coffee table in front of some antiques. Love them 🙂

Ailecek favori resimlerimizden iki tanesi, salondaki bir sehpada antika esyalarin onunde duruyor. Cok guzel resimler 🙂

One of my favorite photos of Ahmet (he is 18 years old here) standing on my bedstand in a vintage frame. Love how the black and white photo stands out in that silver frame.

Ahmet’in en sevdigim fotograflarindan biri (bu fotografta 18 yasinda) komodinimin uzerinde eski bir cercevenin icinde duruyor. Siyah beyaz resmin gumus cerceve icindeki goruntusune bayiliyorum.

Some of the old photos of my family (one of them is my mom and dad’s wedding) is arranged in an old wooden tray on our coffee table.

Ailemizin birkac eski resmi (bir tanesi anne ve babamin dugununden) salondaki sehpamizin uzerinde eski ahsap bir tepsinin icinde duzenlenmis. 

A closer look.

My favorite photo of my dad, playing tennis when he was around 26 years old.

Babamin en sevdigim fotografi, 26 yaslarindayken tenis oynarken.

This is an artistic work from my mother 🙂 She managed to make a collage of these frames on the wall and hung them on a commode in the entrance hall.

Annemin artistik islerinden biri 🙂 Birsuru eski resimi cerceveletip bu sekilde bir kolay yapti ve girisimizdeki bir komodinin uzerine asti. 

And lastly,

Ve son olarak,

My mom’s photo (when she was 21) taken by my father, developed and also printed by my father, when they were studying in Vienna. This is the picture perfect, don’t you think?

Annemin 21 yasindayken babam tarafindan, Viyana’da okurlarken cekilmis, tab edilmis ve basilmis fotografi. Iste bu resim mukemmel, sizce de degil mi?

The Skirt

Not a usual fan of black skirt – white shirt combination but this one is stunning, no?

Siyah etek – beyaz gomlek kombinasyonunu her zaman cok begendigim soylenemez ama bu kesinlikle cok guzel, degil mi?

Congrats Kourtney, not an easy skirt to pull off.

Tebrikler Kourtney, tasimasi cok kolay bir etek kesinlikle degil.

PS: The skirt is from TT Collection

Bu arada, etek TT Collection’dan.
