The only beach towel you will ever need!

What up boys & girls!

Here I am again and this time to let you know of the only thing you will (probably) need during this sumer! You might be thinking a new outfit or shoes or perfume..well, even though I study fashion design, that is not what I consider quite important during this season. Because of the fact that I come from a quite tropical country, the most important for me would be to feel comfortable while by the beach, which is where I will be spending most of my time 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not a long time ago I got to know about this amazing beach towel designed by the sweetest guys in San Diego. But what is so special about a beach towel, Mariana? You might be thinking, huh… I bet you at some point had to improvise a little pillow (made out of clothes, backpacks and the most crazy shit) in order to lay down by the sand and not feel pain by the end of the day! Well, it always happened to me, but Bruno, Brandon and Steve thought of a towel that comes with a light pillow inside, so you can easily carry everywhere you go with no extra weight!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not only that, but the towel is eco-friendly and made out if 100% turkish cotton, which makes it extra-comfy.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I could not wait to test mine and here you can see the infinite ways you can use it. Beach towel, sarong, turban, headband, you name it!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you want to help out this amazing guys by backing up the project, run to see their campaign and pre-order your Sand Cloud towel, I am sure you will love it ❤

Love, Mari.

Zara summer sales

Hey guys,

If you live in Copenhagen, you certainly know that EVERY store is on sales now, right? Well, as a Zara employee, I have been keeping an eye on the items that I wanted from a certain time until now, so it is finally time to shop them! Here are my personal favorites 😉 Sales must haves

Tourist-ing around town

Hey guys!

It has been a while, hope you are enjoying the sun out there, well, I am 🙂

So my mother-in-law-to-be came all the way from Brazil to visit us. I guess she did not want to be around the World Cup Buzz, so Copenhagen must feel like a great place to escape! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is quite a pleasure having family and friends visiting us, since we only go back home once a year and sometimes it almost feels like we´re too far away and distant, both physically and emotionally, from all the ones we love, so I am very excited to have her here and soon some of our argentinian and german friends as well!

This saturday we decided to take her for a little tour around town, yes, I know, very turistic, but we will get to the most secret spots later on. First things, first! This is the outfit I chose to go and it felt amazing being able to use a backless shirt, with the wind blowing my skirt and hair, I don´t want summer to ever end!

How are you using your summertime?

Love, Mari.

Let jewellery picture her story

Let jewellery picture her story: An Interview with jewellery lover Joana Roxana

For Roxana, it all started as a hobby and as a way to express her own reality, but today she dreams of launching her first collection by the end of this year.

HYBRIDA girls love to see passionate people that enjoy doing what they love the most, because it is inspiring and it is important to support people like Roxana. We want to show the world that a dream does come true if you fight for it!

Today I’m delighted to share her story, her lovely handmade jewellery and passion for re-design of old pieces of jewellery.

So, are you ready to meet Joana?

Interview after the picture ;).

When did you start doing Jewelry?

In 2012, 1 year after I came to Denmark (I am from Romania). At the time I was studying management and it was not what I really enjoyed doing, so whenever I had some spare time I would do drawings, painting…so I started drawing jewellery. At that time I did not see it as something that would grow on me.

How is your design process?

I gather old pieces of jewellery from second-hand shops, fairs from different countries, and I purchase old pieces of jewellery that inspires me.

I try to look at other people’s work and get inspired with different techniques and afterwards I redesign the jewellery in my own way using various techniques.

selected1

What inspires you?

Everything that surrounds me inspires me. But something that inspires me the most is nature and Frida Kahlo.

selected2

Who does your jewellery appeal to?
A feminine, girly, and elegant person who loves nature, children, animals, and is romantic. Someone who has an inner beauty inside her and she wants to show it to the world in different ways – and a piece of jewellery is one of them.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery?

It is a necklace made out of an old bracelet, which was a gift from my grandmother back when I was only 18. It broke and I felt sorry about it so I decided to give it a new life and re-design it. The chain of the necklace is a silver chain, which was a gift from my mother… The pearls were purchased from a vintage fair. So I’m kind of wearing 3 generations of my family here! I feel strongly attached to this piece because it’s nostalgic and it brings me back good memories. It is a special piece that I connect to.

Future plans?

By the end of this year I have a plan to start up a collection of statement necklaces using the Macramé technique. The Macramé technique is method where you make knots in a cord.

One of the main core values is quality so I will try to incorporate that into my designs by creating something rustic, simple – but unique.

selected4

Any idea for the brand name?

I’m not a hundred percent sure but it will probably be something like Joy Chic because my pieces are joyful and chic at the same time – those two words represent me and are also in my own core values.

Under a Veil

Today I am super happy to share these new images with you guys as it’s a shooting that I wanted to do for a very long time.

Well, now it is no secret that I’m a huge lover of fascinator hats, masks and headpiece veils. I think that it adds mystery and personality to your outfit.

I love when I see people wearing fascinator hats, there’s something so incredibly elegant about it that it makes you stand out, no matter how simple is your outfit.

With the wedding season coming up, that is a great excuse, as a wedding guest, to pull together your beautiful veil or headpiece to ensure you get your look spot on!

Mariana´s Creations

Hey guys & girls!

Well, here are some of my designs which I have made during the last months, I wish I had more time to do even more, I just love sewing SO MUCH!

I have originally made the boy´s clothes (sweat-jumpsuit, dyed tee and fake-leather jacket) and the girl´s floral set + white top just for fun, for me, my boyfriend and his brother (who, by the way is the model. Girls, he is single!) but I thought they looked pretty decent, so I have made a little photo shoot to include in my portfolio.

Hope you liked it, let me know what you think of them and what I can improve 😉OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have a great sunday, ya´ll!
