It was a long long weekend that started on Friday and ended on Monday. Those few times that you get to escape and spend quality time with the people you love, are probably my most favourite ones of the year.

This was the first time that we celebrated Easter with the whole family, and if you caught up with snapchat, there was a lot of dancing, singing and many Greek traditions that made the weekend even more special. AND, it was the first time i got to really enjoyed playing with my new camera and lens after the Santorini photoshoots!

Nature has always been my main source of inspiration, and boy did i enjoy lots of it! Our base was our relative’s traditional Greek beach cottage, in this gorgeous field of olive trees, by the beach, with chickens, geese, cats and puppies running around. Words can’t even start describing the beautiful sceneries my eyes have seen and the unforgettable memories i gathered. But hopefully the video i’m preparing will!

My little sister (who’s not so little any more) and i, spent our evenings playing with the golden light and taking new profile pictures for her. If you ask me, she’ll have a hard time choosing one from the 200 i got of her, as she looks like a dream in all of them. I don’t think i’ve ever loved a person more like i love her <3 (place huge heart eyes emoji here!)

FINALLY! After a whole week and a half being back from Santorini, i’m able to share a few snaps with you. The whole trip was like a big picture, as we did nothing else but photo shooting from location to location, but there were a few strolls here and there at the end of the day.

The coolest Mansi Shah had me prepared for all the sun and summer weather, with a few sets of their caps. Boy was that a summer weather! Mid April and both Theo and i got sunburnt from shooting outside. But surely it was all worth it since we got a swim in our own private jacuzzi. Will share more snaps next week!

You probably know by now my obsession with straw hats, the collection keeps growing bigger and bigger! I was never too fond of caps, mainly for how stiff and unflattering they are. Those patterns though really stood out to me, and with a great surprise i found out that they are soft and very elegant. Definitely my go to cap this summer, jogging and beaching.

We finally made i!! Have been talking about this for such a long time and being here feels so unreal right now. We’ve been walking, living and travelling in a crazy – non stop rhythm for the past two days. Got a few moments to my self at last, laying in my beautiful bed with a large window in front of me, that watches down the sea.

The secret is out and i’m super excited to share with you that we’ll be shooting the collection in Sophia Luxury Suites. Had a help locating this spot by Sara Medina, who visited last summer. Completely fell in love with the minimal island style – perfectly matching the SS16 i’ve been working on the past few months. Not going big or anything, but i’ve never met friendlier staff than the one here before. They’ve embraced us to their island and hotel and we cannot wait to spend the next days here.

We won’t start shooting until tomorrow, so today is all about fun, lots of walks and taking a breath. Yes, our room has an outdoor pool so that might be in the picture as well. I’m going crazy on social media and snapchat (corinanika) today, so feel free to follow along!
