Iskar Reservoir Weekend Ideas Close to Sofia

Friday already is here! Grab your swimsuit, couple of fresh drinks, your friends and let's go to explore! If the seaside is too far away for you Iskar lake is one of the solutions. 
Iskar Reservoir is a destination for relaxation and chilling out away from the stressful days here in the city. Also one of the best destinations close to Sofia for surfing, motor boats, water scooters and of course sunbathing.
The Reservoir is really huge and actually the biggest reservoir in Bulgaria. The sides of the lake itself is good for having a picnic, tenting and camping. If you are into water sports you can just go for boating, canoe and kayaking and even windsurfing.
Here are just few pictures what we have captured during our stay around lake area.

Have a Green and Fresh Weekend!

Weekend is just one step away and here are some ideas how you can be active and at the same time to participate in useful activities in your free time. Plus we share with you two of our favourite trees full with blossoms.

  • Refresh your balcony with flowers, herbs and even trees and turn it into modern city oasis
  • Apart from taking spring sunbaths on the rooftop why not to use it for building rooftop garden
  • Initiate making garden in front of the building where you live - you can always ask for advice your neighbours or just start making the garden together

Cherry blossom tree close to our studio
  • Participate in spring festivals organised close to your place. For example from today 28th April till 30th April just few kilometers away from Sofia in Elin Pelin takes place agricultural festival for free exchange of seeds and young trees. The main idea is to bring with you some vegetable seeds from your garden or your grandmother's garden and exchange them with the other participants. During the festival you have the opportunity to participate in agricultural workshops, lectures for herbs, concerts, movie projections and lots more.

  • What about your favourite blossoming tree? Tell us what are the Spring festivals this year near your place? Do you have plans to participate in them? 
Have a green and fresh weekend!

Earth Day 22nd April 2017 Call to Action Ideas for Improving the Environment

Today, 22nd April is the Earth Day and this year the Earth Day Campaign is going to focus on "climate literacy to empower global citizens with knowledge to inspire action for environmental protection".

Here is our list with ideas how everybody consciously could improve the environment:

1. Reduce using plastic bags or at least use recyclable ones
2. Use products packed in recycled flacons, boxes, packages - nowadays there are tones of companies that offer such kind of products out there in the market
3. Plant trees, flowers, bushes - it can be fun project for both kids, parents and grown-ups plus the end result out of this activity is more than beautiful
4. Recycle the waste (plastic bottles, used batteries, old clothes, cardboard and paper) - build a habit for your household or office to send the waste at the appropriate collectible places
5. Reuse when possible plastic bags and bottles - instead of buying again and again plastic bags when shopping you could always have with you one or two; the same goes for the plastic bottles after usage you can fill the with water, fruit juice or another favourite drink. 
6. Share with your friends, colleges your knowledge and experience that improved your common environment
7. Learn more about the effects of the global waste problem by the Documentary Trashed.




If you are Sofia based Participate in the Recycling Campaign today or just read about 5 Reasons Why to Use Tote Bags.

Plus do not forget: "If you think waste is someone else's problem, think again."

Thank you for reading! Feel free to comment and share with us what are your ways for recycling or reducing the waste.

Hello! Sorry for things been a bit slow here on the blog but have not been that slow in our studio! This New Year started full with inspiration, new design projects and a lot of work. For all these a little bit later we will reveal one by one the end results.

Now all of us are just one day away of March ready to embrace the upcoming spring though the official Spring Day is on 20th March. 
This time we are happy that we worked on very special martenisa custom orders made out of white and red yarn. Some of the bracelets and the pom pom pins are also available in our Etsy shop.

What martenitsa tradition follows:

  • On 1st March starts the martenitsa exchange and lasts all month long
  • Martenitsa is a piece of handmade bracelet, pin brooch, a necklace made out of white and red wool or yarn
  • These traditional accessories symbolize wish for good health 
  • You do not buy martenitsa for yourself. You make it as a gift for your friends, family, loved ones
  • You can also decorate home with martenitsa making a corner dedicated to martenitsa details 
  • Once you see a stork you can remove all your martenitsa bracelets and hang them on a blossoming tree
