Being adventurous isn’t about hiking up the Everest or getting “wanderlust” tattooed on your arm. It’s about always having a will to explore, even if it’s a different continent or just across the bridge.
Today, we took Karakoy; one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Istanbul. Though I can’t deny the fact that I kind of already miss Camden, it feels good to be home.
Here are the details from our fun day in Karakoy:
Karakoy wouldn’t be Karakoy without old men sitting on the corner of the picture. The best thing about these streets is that it is both historic and hipsteresque. I sincerely hope that this ambiance won’t be totally destructed when big companies realise that Karakoy is a money-making opportunity. (Yes, Hande Yener, I’m talking about you and your new Sebastian project in the middle of Karakoy 🙁 )
We also checked the Souq Winter Fair out. It was a nice collection of winter gift ideas with a christmassy scent. (and here we’re stalking our favourite blogger Nil Erturk)
Outfit of the Day
- Coat: Mapa Boutique
- Jumper: Topshop UK
- Boots: Burberry
- Bag: Fjallraven Kanken
Nope, not a Kanken ad. Though they are very, very comfortable and you can basically carry anything around in them. Definitely buying another color.
Today, I was accompanied by Deniz.
I love street art.
My favourite place in London is Hoxton.
And I would graffiti the s*hit out of my house if my parents let me.
We bought these Dream Catchers today as a reminder of our adventure. May they bring luck!
Some artwork from Mixer Gallery, Karakoy.
Discovery of the day: JUNK
Junk is an amazing vintage collection store, run by a lovely lady who collects vintage items from all around the world. I wanted to take every single one of them back with me (maybe except for the baby heads).
Don’t forget to go on an adventure!
