    Raluca’s Cowl & Adventures in Romania

    If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been in Romania for a week. I’ve been to Timișoara a few times over the last six years or so, but I never had as much fun there as this time. I enjoyed taking time for myself to do nothing: I spent a lot of time just […]

  • Finland 2014: Porvoo

    Finland 2014: Porvoo

    Porvoo is the second oldest city in Finland after Turku, receiving its town charter in the 14th century. In the Old Town, you’ll find adorable little streets with wooden houses that seem to have materialized straight out of an Astrid Lindgren novel. Just imagine growing up there before it had become so frequented by tourists! […]

    Me Made May ’14 – Week One

    I finished the first week of Me-Made May and let me tell you, this is haaaaaaaaard. I’ve actually got to think about what to wear in the morning, and I’m not big on thinking at that time of the day. Usually I just blindly throw on something and hope it looks good. It has been […]

    Three Cities, Three Dresses: Heidelberg

    Today’s the day! After much procrastination and the wonderful time killer that is knitting with silk yarn, I’m writing the last installment for “Three Cities, Three Dresses” and introduce to you: Heidelberg and the red version of the dress. Red is my favourite colour, that’s why it was only natural to make a pattern I […]

  • Three Cities, Three Dresses: Ulm

    Three Cities, Three Dresses: Ulm

    You’ve already seen my first attempt at this pattern in my post about Aachen, but the story didn’t end here. No sir! I became obsessed with this pattern. OBSESSED. I HAD to make another one for my birthday back in January. With only one and a half days to finish the dress, off I went to my […]

  • Three Cities, Three Dresses: Aachen

    Three Cities, Three Dresses: Aachen

    My Dad’s terrace is starting to feel like the most boring backdrop for taking pictures. That’s why I took my field trip to Aachen as an opportunity to show off a dress I’ve finished back in December 2013. It did take a lot of commitment to the cause, because I was freezing my ass off. […]

  • Budapest, My Love

    Budapest, My Love

    I’ve been back from Budapest for a few days now, but I basically haven’t been doing anything but sleep and eat since then. I’ve had a wonderful time, met wonderful people and saw wonderful things … there was so much wonderfulness that it was exhausting. Budapest remains my great love and I’ve enjoyed being back […]

    Helsinki 2012

    I was in Helsinki over the weekend to visit a dear friend of mine. Ol’ landlubber me was of course very impressed by the sea and all the huge ships, haha! For the first two days we looked at all the tourist-y spots in the city, like the churches and all the other important buildings. […]
