About Me


Be happy go lucky!


I like to see all details in my life.
I cannot think myself without traveling,photography and watching movies! I'm writing articles and taking photos for some Turkish magazines. I also published my first magazine match-up recently. (

-I live with my bf and he is an architect. We are an open-minded and gender-race-ethnicity blind couple. We want to have fun every moment of our life:) Also we are very into art, and have an enthusiasm to create!

Here is my blog:

Here is my portfolio:
Here is our paper craft project:


"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, comformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Actually I have many but still I've been searching into the "best" one.
I've seen amazing people in Berlin, amazing street art works in Berlin and Paris..
I'd slept in a park once, in the morning I'd heard all sounds of nature, birds,animals,wind...then I told myself: there was nothing more amazing than feeling the nature!
