Weekly Snippets | 5

Although I (successfully) "boycotted" joining Instagram for quite a while, I gave it a go some time back (I wrote about it on the blog) and got completely absorbed. My vision of Instagram is not only creating a visual diary, but also searching for art and inspiration everywhere, similarly as I try to do with my camera on this blog. And with things being pretty hectic lately, this is a quick way to document little inspiring things.

P. S. The lovely, colourful socks on the sixth photo were a gift of a a young and incredibly creative team called Zulu Zion. Their socks are designed to bring a combination of vivid colors and unexpected patterns - stepping away from the traditional stripes and polka dots, away from the classic navy blue and the 'always safe' black. Their patterns are really original so head to their website (click here) and follow them on their path to success!

They also launched a campaign on Kickstarter - make sure to support them and get yourself a pair of these cheerful socks!

P. S. #2: The winners of the print giveaway are the 13th and 4th comment - congrats Katarina and BlueEyedNightOwl! Stay tuned, there'll be more soon!

Fig Newtons

These cookies are among my favourites and I really wanted to try and make them at home. I stumbled upon this recipe on Food52 and it proved to be a really great one. Oh my, these cookies - especially when warm, straight out of the oven - are heaven. Obviously they're not as pretty as the ones at the store, but nothing beats fresh homemade cookies.And if you follow the instructions in the recipe, they'll stay soft for the next few days.

*You need to use dry figs - the first photo is one that I took in the summer but was still lying in the archive. 

P. S. Don't forget to enter the giveaway!
