Before your long vacation coming up drop into The Upper Crust Bebek and swap over your old books for new ones. There is a great selection to choose from, so enjoy! You never know when you might be stuck with flight delays or a much extended road trip, a book will change your life in these moments.

Why you should be drinking lemons first thing in the morning? Here are 6 benefits that will enhance your life. I squeeze mine into my ginger iced tea made the previous day and chilled  over night ready for breakfast. 

1. Lemons are shown to stimulate and purify the liver. It also helps digestive acids with digestion and elimination.

3. If your body is in a chronic pH imbalance, it's susceptible to disease. Even though lemons seem acidic, they are extremely alkalizing and a great way to ensure your pH balance is where it should be especially if your diet is heavy in meat, cheese and/or alcohol.

5. Though I hesitate to even consider giving up my morning coffee, many people swear they can easily give it up after a few days of lemon water. The combination of water and lemon helps to hydrate and oxygenate the blood, leaving you feeling great.

Work Space Wednesday

by Stylist Elly


No matter your vocation, you can always find ways of feeling better about the space in which you work. Bring in plants, arrange your objects to reflect your taste and add items that please you. Keep a creative mind when returning to the same area day after day, make changes every season to keep it fresh and uplifting or if your position involves a lot of travel invest in accessories and luggage that please you.

The tribal trend is your perfect resort theme this summer. I recently went up to the amazing atelier/showroom of the talented haute couture jewelry designers from Felicimomenti to have a look at their new 'Hippique' collection. Think of 'gyp-set' (gypsy jet-setter) style with each item hand crafted from mostly pre-existing antique items and semi precious stones. The amazing designs are both uniquely modern and tribal at the same time and include eclectic statement necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings that have been lovingly collected and hand crafted for many years. Wear with your all white outfit, or throw on your Peter Pilotto dress to mix colours and textures or keep it minimal with your evening LBD for something that shouts good taste and style.
