Benji Knewman. Christmas. Grandmothers

There are more specific things in the life that we are able to discover. It’s still a pretty quiet Christmas night, even though I’m in the loudest part of the silent centre of the Capital of Latvia, and the deep thoughts about the presents and all this celebration stress, gifts, Santa, money, church, Jesus etc… more we get in to it, more I want to light the cigarette I have into my hands, even I am totally against them. 

So coming back to the point, where I was about to tell you the expressions and thoughts about, what’s on the title.. So it’s the very 21st century, and technoligies get some over obsessed people to hate the things that we are able to touch. For example, I am holding the object, that you might call a book, but it’s officialy a “bookazine” (I don’t exactly understand the meaning of it). It’s like a total project with the people of stories and thoughts about smaller and larger things in this life, reading and editing. I wouldn’t ever mind, if someone would ask me to write some story as in “Benji Knewman”. At it’s very official “abstract” or some kind of description of this bookazine it’s mostly about Ben,but I guess I could tell more if I would read the book

Benji Knewman is a man, around 38 years old. He’s trying to be genuine, and it seems he sometimes manages. Just like his grandfather who used to say: “Ben, how you spend your day is how you spend your life!” Currently Benji Knewman is more everywhere than anywhere. Mostly on the road. He’s still in search of his own perfect day. While looking for it, he curates a biannual bookazine telling stories about people who don’t pretend and who can simply be. Covering a myriad of vocations and lifestyles, as well as geographical locations, they’re living proof that you don’t have to be conventional to have a good life.

In the end, everything is going to be great.

So description is not giving me the idea of the bookazine, but it’s more fascinating than the most of descriptions, so sliding deep in, what’s up in there. 

I also got the Planner of editor of the book Agnese Kleina, and I wouldn’t ever want it to end. It is in the perfect size and shape. Planned life is the best property I have so far! With hopes and dreams and blogging stuff of latvian sight of life and things, what I will discover by filling the planner, so I’m more than excited - New Year’s resolutions are almost done, and I’m ready for exploring

Ja Tevi kopē, pastāsti viņiem, kā to darīt labāk un lētāk. Tā izdara ādas somu ražotājs un pie reizes pastāsta, kāpēc viņa somas ir tā vērtas. Asprātīgi un izklaidējoši. Es teiktu, ka pat izglītojoši.

How to Knock Off a Bag (by Saddleback Leather)


rainy day outside my window, so I took big cup of tea, warm blanket and my computer to check out blogs and get dose of inspiration :) 

something I can recommend to you, is blog by Latvian stylist, blogger and brand consultant (usually for children) Santa B. Mihelsone stories, photos and mini online shops for children clothing and latest fashion news from Paris.

another Latvian stylist, blogger and journalist Agnese Kleina like she say’s about herself: “A journalist’s chronicle of befriending the fashion while trying to outrun it.” inspiring and whimsical. videos, stories, pictures and, of course, her style of life. online shop, postcards from Paris, pictures in Instagram, videos on youtube and stories from Kyoto (Japan). by the way, one thing I’m loving and will love again next year, is The Planner ( ). just the same way, like I love her whimsical stories. 

with love and lot of inspiration, xx
