Spring on Mallorca

Finally it’s here!

The long-awaited spring is at our doorstep and we can breathe with confidence as we get on with this new year.
After four wet and cold winter months here on the island, it feels wonderful to walk again on the beach without being packed like a marshmallow.

The sun is gaining strength even if it is only for a few hours. Nature slowly awakens from her winter sleep and the days become noticeably longer and warmer. The street cafes have that summer buzz again and everyone uses absolutely every opportunity to be out and about. A café con leche with croissant and a place in the sun is all you need to enjoy that much celebrated Mediterranean lifestyle.

The streets and parks are filled with life again and the spring’s energy spreading to everyone corner. One would like to spend almost every minute outside, whether it be jogging, walking, with friends for a wine or just relaxing in the sun.

All the new year resolutions that you promised yourself are prooving worthwhile as summer is now at our doorstep. Because it seems that in less than 2 or 3 weeks we will be catapulted straight into summer. There is no slow introduction into the next season here, the change happens so quickly that I’m overrun every year. From now on we could lie on the beach and it is hard to believe that only a few days past we were running about all wrapped up and undercover of umbrellas.

This is the course of things here on the island. Normally everything is very slow and deferred. Only nature has its own rules! The weather changes unusually fast from warm and sunny to stormy and frightening grey. But luckily, everything does not last so long and a few hours later it is warm again and the sun shines as though it was never any other way.

I am looking forward to the coming months, not only because of the sun, but also because there is a lot of excitement about my daughter and I. We have now embarked on an exciting project, our new online shop “Koyunseven” a fashion line inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle.

Our amazing experiences here in Mallorca have helped us lovingly create a versatile, feminine collection for everyday casual wear and lifestyle products. Self-designed and carefully selected garments wil be available from mid-April. We know you will love them as much as we do!
