It seems like just a week ago I was squeezing snow in my palms and now it’s all melting away, flooding the streets with ice-cold rivers.

After a few hour-long walk I came back with my feet completely soaked, but that didn’t ruin my mood. Can’t wait for the sun and warmth, it feels like I can already see myself in the countryside, by the lake, my legs hanging off the footbridge, toes touching the water enjoying the summerish afternoon and its sounds - an unreachable dream for today. How could I not mention going on the boat at a golden hour? Magical.

Sunny Malaysia, became a magical distant memory. Was I there? Did I travel? Did I fly? Did I teach students? Did I have lectures? Did I LIVE there?

At least for now, I have such simple wishes, that I even surprise myself sometimes…

To lose a few Covid kilograms – by eating a lot of vegetables for example, by walking in the rhythm of...

For me, February is always associated with my Mom’s Birthday and Valentine’s Day. It also goes very fast and usually reminds me to start taking care of my body lines because SPRING is just around the corner and soon we will see what and how much everybody ate haha.

Today, I heard the flattering sounds of snow cracking under my feet. Even though it was slippery and hard o walk, there was a smile on my face hiding under a bubbly mask.

Would you like something bubbly?

The post staff didn’t seem happy.

Nobody I crossed paths with today did…

Or maybe the unhappy one is me? And I was the only one seeing it that way.

God took us from ourselves when just not that long ago we thought that the best things in life can be bought – new items, travels, bottomless consumption, and one thought ‘I need this’’. But now, when our needs are reduced, it turns out that we can’t live without live...

BARBE - 20210116_145547.jpg

I noticed that during quarantine time slowed down.

I started looking at everything more consciously, closer, with a much greater concentration.

I’m willingly going to clean my dishes!

I’m scrubbing dirty sneakers in a meditative mood!

I’ve started drinking my morning cup of coffee while looking out the window. I can be in silence for a good half an hour or more because I don’t have to rush anywhere!!!

And here today such quarantine coincidences-memories-thoughts
came to my mind, so I’m sharing it:

Lezione di vita: My dear, some things will work out by themselves, just give them time!

I remember my kindergarten, a three-story building. It was winter. On the roof edge, there were gigantic-sized icicles. I called my friend and asked what icicle would she like. ‘That one!’ she pointed her finger up. I took a huge stone and threw it… On the ground floor, a window was opened, so...

AV 2020 Zodiac Gift Guide

AV 2020 Zodiac Gift Guide - she - IG-1.jpg

This year is coming to an end…

No one will deny the fact that it was a real year of masks. I created sixteen mask designs with color variations that appeared in my e-shop. Looking at the masks, I decided to make a gift guide based on the signs of the horoscope.

Maybe this will be a great inspiration for gifts.

What is your zodiac sign?

‘I want you to take some pictures of me this morning’, I said to my M and went to have a shower.

After a good half-hour, we both drowned in the abundance of camera shots. I do not know why, but over the years I look at the photos with a strange fear, but I guess it is common among women. I don’t feel how old I am and every time someone asks me, I have to take a moment and think.

The moment the first snow has fallen, here I was trying to taste the falling snowflakes.

And when the puddles got frozen, here I was trying to skate on them.

And then there was the idea that if you are still enjoying the snow and you want to skate on frozen puddles– you are really young and who cares about the number.

Of course, I always want to talk more about my creations and designs, rather than myself and my look. That’s why filming myself for me is so hard. I prefer to be an observer. Even my shadow...

Do you know what could save the world?


It seems like the current year took away our comfort (safety), money, traveling, but it can’t take away our creativity, the power of imagination, dreaming, attraction, action, discovery, creation, change, view.

Just like a question written in a forum I read - ‘What’s the thing you’re missing the most this year?’. I wrote ‘Travel’ with three crying emojis. It almost brought me to tears!

But can’t I travel for real?

Travel through books, films, travel channels, thoughts, dreams, own designs? Walking through the park covered in golden leaves – isn’t that a mini-trip? Looking for fabrics? Sketching? Cooking? So many things can be done throughout the day – even talking together and dreaming about Asia, deciding to cook an Asian dish that was seen on a travel cook show?

If we could only wake ourselves up in today’s chaos, and learn...

There is one troubling dilemma.

When I leave the house, I am not sure which mask to wear, haha … There are more than a dozen of them…

Favorite mask? Namaste Logo Games 2 (Black Reflective).

My hairstyle? Short Bob.

My perfume? Narciso Rodriguez for Her.

Eyes? L'oreal Bambi.

Favorite garment? Pencil-shaped MQ knitted skirt with a zipper in the front all the way down, which I discovered in the Sukne boutique.

A dish that worked out perfectly at home? Chef’s Gordon Ramsay Roast Chicken in Kefir.

The dish I’m planning to cook? Bucatini alla Carbonara by Sophia Loren.

What do I do when I feel sad? Slightly shorten my Short Bob - somehow I like it when the hairdresser ‘does’ my head in every way.

What would I like to buy from clothes? Something from Uniqlo L+. I would still like a Paul Smith ‘Dino’ sweater. And another gray MQ knitted skirt from the Sukne boutique (When I...

Looking at the calendar I’ve noticed that New Year’s eve is not that far away.

Then I thought about champagne – will we pop a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Orange Label this year?

Lezione di vita: 2020– brought so many challenges, but all of us know the saying, what doesn’t kill you – makes you stronger. We’ll live through it, I mean the rest of the upcoming months this year, but we’ll most definitely pop the champagne. How else without it?

Either way, the virus isn’t gone and the mask-making continues.

A new design mask has been made.

I was inspired by the fabric with champagne bottle print, sold by designer Courtney Hanks.

Once again I thought about champagne – maybe it would be nice to cover yourself in champagne bottles too?

After a good week, I received the fabric in my mailbox, and here I am, holding an already sewed mask, just one day later. It‘s missing something though...

Are you waiting for the first snow to fall?

Someone has told me, that first snow is like first love. Sounds silly.

Does snow make us happier?

A bold YES. Written in white.

It stops us for a moment. Makes us look and appreciate. Excites us and makes us realize that the most beautiful holiday of the year is just around the corner.

It‘s still uncomfortable to talk about winter. After saying the word out loud I can feel shivers going down my back, especially after living in summerly colored Malaysia for some years.

But to be honest, I miss white snow. I miss layers of clothes, sweaters, hats, and huge warm scarfs. I miss footsteps pressed in snow. I miss mulled wine. I miss his naughty eyes and a toast “to you, to me and to whatever is about to happen tonight…‘‘.

I wish it to be warm and cozy.

How does it sound to you: to spruce up with snow? With snowflakes?
To melt in someone’s...

AgneVei - Pearl Girl ART - POSTER.jpg

Around a couple of weeks ago, while browsing on social media platforms, a painting ‘A Girl with a Pearl Earring’ (1665) by the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer caught my eye. Two thoughts popped into my head. The first was about the lack of a mask on her face (2020). The second was that she really resembles my niece Vaiva.

Enjoy the result.
