Hello 2015

As we are saying hello to a New Year of course there are new dreams, hopes, ambitions and wishes. It is important that thought is given into what you really want to accomplish with your precious days. Make wishes, choose wisely and most importantly do something to achieve what you want from life. It is your life, your journey. As cliche as it is, a new chapter in your book of 'My life is awesome' has begun so take time and care into writing it!


Don't wait for things to happen. Take the initiative to make them happen!


Write down what you want to accomplish to make your goals concrete!


Consistently evaluate your goals and set new ones!


Ready, set & go! :)

Enjoy these lovely set of photos from the Greek Island of Kios, one of my favorites. I hope the photos bring you good energy just as I was enjoying every single minute of capturing them.

Izmir Knows


dön dön bebeğim yanıyor içim
özledim çok özledim.
martılar süzülürken süzülür yaşlar
dökülür gözlerim.
grubun rengi boyarken bile sahili turuncuya
hiç tadım yok.
ne hilal ne çoban yıldızı teselli etmiyor.
acım çok ki düşün ne kadar severim meltemin
yüzünü öperek esişini.
ağlarım incecikten ayrılık ölümden çok.
izmir izmir yanıyor kara sevda hasretinden.
izmir izmir yanıyor kara sevda hasretinden....

turn back, turn back to me baby I am burning inside
 oh how I've missed, missed you so much.
while the seagulls are soaring my tears are running,
my eyes are falling apart.
even when the color of the sunset is painting the shore orange
I'm not really in the mood.
not even the new moon consoles me nor the lodestar.
my pain is too great to enjoy the way sea breeze that blows
against your face while kissing it.
I'm crying minutely because separation is harder than death.
izmir is burning because of your blind love longing.
izmir is burning because of your blind love longing.....

Collage Me Happy

Hello Hello!!!... soo after a long long contemplation I have opened myself a Society 6 page where I will have my photography and some of my artwork available. You can access my page via this link, or from the top right side bar of my blog.

What has driven me to do this was the discovery of Hugo Barros and the collection of photography I have culminated throughout the past few years. If it's decent work why not share it with everyone?

Hugo Barros is an artist from Lisbon who does hand made surreal collages. I love his style and compositions. His work has this vintage 60s vibe which is so unique. Today I made a piece inspired by his style and wanted to share here. For more of his work check him out here.

My new home

I can say that airports are my homes. The newest addition to my home collection is the new domestic terminal of Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport. I can get sick of flying, and hate airports when I am so frequently here and there... But this terminal is so beautiful that I had to write about it.

Normally I don't travel to the domestic airport, unless I am flying within Turkey which rarely happens. This year flying to Trabzon from Izmir I saw the interior of the new terminal. I was blown away by how grand, structural and light it was. All I can say is that it was worth the hassle of traveling combined with the domestic passengers in the international terminal for two years while the construction was underway.

Many Turks probably know this airport thanks to Kacak Gelinler (literally translated as 'Fleeing Brides'), where three brides running from their marriages due to various complications meet at the airport and start an adventure.

Get your sport on

I am not even over-exaggerating! This season's sports wear inspired collections are everywhere and they motivate everyone to get in motion! (me at least, anyway). Adidas looks like the winner with their new collabs with names such as Pharrell, Italian Independent, Rita Ora and Mary Katrantzou (no official sketches are released yet, unfortunately). DKNY x Cara has also been a long awaited capsule collection by the up and coming model Cara Delevigne; undoubtedly many people's role model. Launched a few days ago, the collection has been getting a lot of media attention. Did you know Cara selected the faces of her campaign personally?

AND THE HIT OF THE SEASON. Alexander Wang x H&M due to launch November 6th online & in selected H&M stores worldwide. Need I say more?

Rita Ora x Adidas
