NO

Came to my attention it´s Oxi Day in Greece today, Oxi means no in Greek. History tells on this day at 3AM, Emanuele Grazzi (the Italian ambassador to Greece) delivered an ultimatum from Benito Mussolini to Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas. Demanding free passage for the Italian army entering and occupying strategic sites unopposed. Metaxas delivered this message in French “Alors, c´est la guerre,” meaning “Then, it is war.” Which quickly was transmuted into the laconic “Oxi by the citizens of Athens. 

You can read more about the complicated nature of Ioannis Metaxas and more facts here from The Ultimate History Project. Wearing white which consists half of the Greek flag is only right. Giorgos Papadopoulos serves the musical notes with the song “Oxi.”

Raspberries in Red Square

Happy new week. Thought I wanted to talk about the #SayNoToMrPutin hashtag again, my personality easily engages in political affairs. Opened up my personal FB wall and Twitter account for people who opposes the current regime in Russia. I don´t take credit for the campaign (which is perfectly run by some creative people, impressed by their work). I only support the campaign by sharing what they do.

Through dedication and learning by closely following the events unfolding in Ukraine, from the first news of Crimean occupation to the Ukrainian parliamentary elections yesterday, have I also discovered Russian citizens sharing the same hopes and dreams of more democracy. This Raspberries in Red Square shawl from Comtesse Sofia is incredibly pretty, so is this great song from the amazing singer Vlad Sokolovsky. The #SayNoToMrPutin campaign creates room both for Russia and Ukraine, I would love for both to prosper politically.

You can check out more from Comtesse Sofia here, what do you think? I also think the Afternoon on Carmine Street scarf is pretty.10268514_816601531717409_701435358820144318_n

WANDER IN PARADISE // Playa Junquillal

Have a relaxed Sunday, this Vimeo by Sv3nska filmed in Costa Rica is my mode today. Carefree loungewear.

The Vimeo comes with this description: “This film relates a story each can live one day : discover a place by accident and totally fall in love with it, feeling how subjectively unique it is. Finally wondering if “Everything happens for a Reason”. And especially, in the stunning village of Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica.”
