25 red balloons.

On Saturday I celebrated my 25th birthday with my friends. I had been preparing the party as I wanted to make that day special. It's been a pretty intense year for me and I wanted to make something different from every year. I wanted to focus on the idea of wishes becoming true, as this year I've achieved one: being an architect.
As I'm not working right now, I had plenty of time to think of a party, and I started by choosing a theme: red balloons. So, with that being said, I bought an hellium gas cylinder and 30 red balloons.

I designed the invitation myself (in red, of course) and a logo to help people identify the whole thing. A friend of mine kindly let me her house to throw the party, and I also designed the map to help people get there.
Everything in the party was red or white (dishes, cups, cutlery, napkins...) and everyone brought something to eat. It was so perfect, I loved it! I really enjoyed staying there with all of them :)

After eating lunch I told my friends I wanted them to think of a wish and write it down on a paper that I had also designed for the occasion. They were red too, and they had a little hole to attach it to the ribbon holding the balloon.

We went outdoors, we counted to three and we let our wishes go away directly up to the sky. It was a magical moment for me, I really loved seeing all those red spots getting far and far away with our dreams to be accomplished.

It truly was a perfect birthday party thanks to them!

I got some presents and also two cute booklets: one with pictures of different situations we've lived together and the other one with 25 things I have to do in my life! (They do know I really like magenta!).

Baking my 25!

Tomorrow I'll be 25 years old! And, as I'm having a birthday party with my friends, I've baked these shortbreads.

Time vs. Me.

neon, sign, pressure

Oh my... Time flies soooo fast. We're Thursday already...
I need more hours, but definitely more organization with everything that is going on right now.

I really hope this brilliant neon sign is telling the truth, and only need pressure (once again) to work the hardest I can!

Dreamy islands.

I bought this book nearly two years ago, it's called Atlas of Remote Islands and is written by Judith Schalansky (here). It's pure beauty and it takes me to a gorgeous dreamy place every time I flick through it. Also, it's exquisitely designed; the sky-blue cover contrasts with the bright orange-yellow of the inside, but I adore the drawings above everything.
Each of the 50 islands included in this atlas are drawn by Judith Schalansky and they include a little story of the islands, as well as some information and data.

Every island is drawn at the same scale and it's so interesting to see the different sizes of the islands; some ones fit in the whole page and some others are like little spots on the vast ocean-like page.

I truly reccomend this book, even as a self-gift, as you can read it over and over again (and daydream, of course!).

I absolutely adore this image.
Calmness, rawness, freedom, cold and heat at the same time...
