This blog is my blissful journal of happiness. It’s about everything I adore and people I love. Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to write me, please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.orgHave a jolly good day!
Last Friday I saw Sex and the City 2. I have to admit that after reading a few reviews (which were uffff...not good...ouch!), I was worried that it might...well, suck! But my dear ladies, why do we love the girls? I don’t know about you, but the reason I watch this movie is that I can plunge back into the glitz planet of shoes, fabulous gowns, sex-relationship talk and most importantly to visit old friends (I watched them obsessively for years). The outfits were beautiful...The Abu Dhabi setting was breathtaking and I really enjoyed the story line with this little twist in form of Aiden (John Corbett). I can completely relate to the statement the movie represents….that everyone makes their own rules in a relationship/marriage and all is relative! For me it was the best 2 hours of laugh-out-loud hilarious fun and stunning fashion which I probably would never be able to pull off (although I would love to).
Anyhow, see it for yourself, and if it’s not your cup of tea… that’s ok too!
This is my favourite Halston frocks!
Did you see the movie? What are your thoughts, I would love to hear it!
I bet most of you know Leah already, but for those of you who don't: Leah is a great writer who's mother always told her to write thank you notes, so she started a blog where she writes thank-you notes to everything in her life. Here is her take on Monday's....I love it!
I am so excited! Tonight, I am off to see Sex and the City 2! Tomorrow Balazs and I are planning to have a picnic with friends. How about you, my Darlings, what are your plans for this summer weekend?
As always here are a few amazing posts from around the web:
You must see this Bookshop Cafe! I want to drink my coffee there everyday:)
For years I dreamed about bangs but I always thought it wasn't for me.. Then about a year ago my then new hairdresser suggested that I should give it a try and if I wont like it I can always pin it. So, I did and I love it!
What is your expeirence with bangs? Love it, hate it?
Ps: The girl looks amazing in that bow dress and her cute bang....
I adore how this dress goes so well with her cute hair colour.I always wanted that shade and if I could pull off this look I would definetly rock it!....And of course those pandas...Let's all have a little ahhhh.. ...When I was little I was crazy about pandas, and I probably still am!
Don't we all need a little reminder here and there? I know I do...I am the type who plasters her walls, doors and tables with post-it notes...People might say I am forgetful but I'd rather say I just have too many things on my mind...Sounds better, dont you think? (...Who am I kidding, I am hopeless...)...Erin is the creative guy behind those fun and funky reminders.
Do you make notes and reminders or you are more of a free spirit?
You are all the best…Thank you for your amazing comments!
Last week I posted a few of my favourite stripy looks and after that I met one of my friends who asked me what I think about kids and stripes..I thought, come on!...Kids look great in anything, but then I saw those photos and YES...They do look adorable in stripes too...
I love wedges but I am so tall and I often opt for flats as they're easier and more comfy...but this pair of wedges from Cynthia Rowley won my heart over and they cost only $79!
Perfect pair of shoes for a picnic in a park or some weekend fun!
Here is the equally cute black and white version.
Thumbs up for this Carnival inspired wedding! The lovely Eunice from Hello! Lucky, is the happy bride with the moustache...This whole extravaganza was created to celebrate the love of those two lovely people....This carnival inspired wedding was just featured by Martha Stewart and I could not resist to show you a few of these pieces...
The dress has the most amazing ruffled train....
Guests enjoying the vibe....
This is my favourite part...The animal parade!!!
How creative and fun....Imagine being one of the guests....I love wedding season!
I adore this project by Paul Octavious called "Same Hill, Different day". Paul says that for the past 2 years he has visited a beautiful mound of earth that he has come to called "the hill." Each time he comes to the hill he discovers a new story as if the hill is his stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play. Isn't that great?
I often wonder about different couples....To be exact, how do they share responsibilities....I find that most of my married girlfriends are in the traditional set up, where the husband is responsible for the financional aspect and he is the one who has a full time carrier and the wife takes care of the house, kids and everything in between.... There are a few of our friends who share all the responsibilities equally and are trying to balace the family life and the busy work schedule....( the meetings, the bills, kids and groceries)....All this thinking came after I saw this amazing photo spread in Harpers Bazaar called Mr.Mom... Here, the handsome Chris Noth plays the role of the mom and the beautiful Milla Jovovich is the busy working woman.
I actually know a Mr.Mom, who lives on my street and everytime I see him with his 2 boys...he makes me smile...There is something so cute about a guy sitting on a park bench with five other moms, chatting about kids' eating habits and nap times :)
I am completely in love with Mara's Hoffman's spring collection. The geometric prints and vibrant colours are so flirty and fun! Each dress has a great cut and just looking at them makes me want to dance! (believe me I am a huge dork when it comes to dancing..I look like Olive from "Popeye")...
I hope you all had a fun weekend full of sunshine ....It's Monday but I hope it will be a good one....
This week was quite busy for me and I am very happy that today is Friday! Tomorrow we have a Birthday Party to attend and if the weather allows, we will have some sweet fun....in a beautiful park near us!
As always, here are some great posts from around the web:
I love Sesame Street and I have a secret crush on Cookie Monster...That is right, I love a blue creature:)...He is such a cool character....Anyway...how adorable are those outfits for a fun, comfy and easy weekend?
Kisses and remember that tomorrow you (probably) can sleep in!
How about a crunchy, chewy and creamy bar with milk chocolate, peanut butter and rice krispies crust, a layer of salted peanut nougat, milk chocolate bavarian topped with caramel cream.....sounds familiar?
The chocolate bar we all know just got a new look!
Snickers with a gourmet touch. Overwhelming sugar-rush or delicate delight that tickles your tastebuds?
I don't know what it is lately but I can't get enough of sweets....Last night I had two huge pieces of cake and now I am ready for this Snickers Bar.....
Cookies, Candies or Cakes? Which rocks your world?
For cute and cheeky invitation cards I always make sure to visit Jag Nagra. She never dissapoints! Here are a few cute Alice in Wonderland inspirated prints. Simple, stylish and always bring out a smile:)
I am in love with this Jaweled Jardin Jacket by J.Crew! What's not to adore? From stunning colours and the three-quater sleeves to hand-applied sequence flowers and beads, this jacket is a must for a summer evening! This beauty is so unique (not only because of the price) that J.Crew only created a few pieces! The best part is that you can dress it up with a little black dress and heels or dress it down like on the photo!
Life is about treating yourself, so maybe today is the day!
What is the one item in your closet, you can't live without?
For me, it has to be my Gap skirt I bought ages ago and I still feel so good everytime I put it on :)
