Party Dress

Tuesday, November 30, 2010



My Darlings, talking about Holidays, any Christmas parties you have planned for this December? Any of those dresses by Morrison would be perfect to welcome a New Year in style or even shake your booty on a crazy-fun office party...hahah. (I'm madly in love with the first dress) xoxo

Metallic Shine


How is that for a cool nail colour? Do you fancy a bit of metallic shine this Christmas? (On a random note, do you paint your toenails in the winter or just during the sandal season?) xoxo

Ps: You can get this look at Sephora:)

Treehouse For Adults


Look at this incredible Yellow treehouse restaurant (believe me, it's a real thing!). It was designed as part of an ad campaign in 2008 by Peter Eising of Pacific Environment Architects with an aim to surprise people and help them see Yellow (as in Yellow Pages) in a different light. It's located in a redwood tree near Warkworth, New Zealand. What a magical place to eat dinner in! Can you image sipping your glass of wine sitting in that cool treehouse? (I would love one in my backyard). xoxo

Ps: By now the treehouse is mostly used for private functions and events. Great wedding venue!

Shadow On The Wall


Wouldn't you love your bedroom to have the most magical glow by those sand-blasted, patterned light bulbs? They are created by a Swedish atsist Ingegerd Raman and they give the most incredible shadows. You can choose between loops, confetti (or as I call it polka dots), stars, swirls or lines. Dears, would you try them in your home? xoxo

Salted Caramel And Chocolate Cake


Early next week Balazs has his birthday and this year I want to bake something I haven't done before (and he doesn’t suspect it). Two things he can't live without are: chocolate and caramel.  So the plan right now is to make this scrumptious salted caramel and chocolate cake but I am not totally sure about it. Darlings, I would love to know if you have any great caramel or chocolate recipes? Do share:) xoxo
