Today’s weekend escape brings us to Formentera, a small island part of the Spanish Balearic Islands. I have been to this island a few timeS and it is beautiful. Its quiet and relaxed ambience make Formentera the perfect destination for beach lovers and for those seeking peace and quietness. This rustic house has an earthy feel and its architecture is typical for the Balearics. Life here is simple yet beautiful!

This cozy apartment is located in an old post office in in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen (Denmark). The two floor apartment certainly has a Scandinavian vibe but there are also French influences which makes sense as one half of the couple living here is French. The large table in the top images was bought in an antique shop. The lamp above the table is made of organic yarn and was purchased from French label Nonjetable.

FRIDAY’S FASHION FILES: O MY BAG AT MINT

omybag1

One of my favorite bags I own is the Sleazy Jane from Dutch fashion brand O My Bag. Not only do I like the bag as it is stylish as well as functional, but I also like the philosophy and values of the brand. O My Bag supports the concept of ‘Trade, Not Aid’, which means part or all of a company’s supply chain involves trade in a country with a struggling economy. At the end of this month O My Bag will be presenting a range of new products during the Dutch fashion fair “Modefabriek” in Amsterdam. They will be present at MINT, a unique tradeshow event (part of the Modefabriek) which aims to inspire towards a fashion scene that is both happening and harmless. MINT offers forward fashion: amazing style, made with respect for people and our environment.
