Rooftop Tweet

Monday, February 28, 2011

Oh my world, if I lived in a house I would get one of those roof birdhouses in a heart beat! Isn't it awesome? Fun way to add something creative to your place. (and I bet the birds will love it too). xoxo

Ps: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

Jazz Shoes



Cute girl and oh so chic (and Frenchshoes that look comfy, modern and would go great with shorts or a spring dress. A simple touch like leopard-print derbies can make such a difference to an outfit. Dears, would you try this look?

(thanks Marie)

Snacking On Homemade Granola Bars


I have to admit, I'm a full-on snacker (dangerous, right?) and it's one of those habits I can't get rid of! Instead of fighting it, I swapped  for a healthier option. Right now I'm loving homemade granola bars. They are made purely on honey (no eggs, no butter) and the best part is you can modify the recipe and change it up depending on your mood. Brilliant! Darlings, what's your weakness? Are you a snacker? xoxo

P.S: We watched the Black Swan (will stay with you for days) and The King's Speech over the weekend  (witty and truly heartwarming). I recommend both of those movies.

Have A Fantastic Weekend

Friday, February 25, 2011

My sweets, what are you up to this weekend? Balazs and I are planning to finally catch up on a few Oscar nominated moves before Sunday. We still haven't seen the Black Swan and The King's Speech (have you?). I'm also looking forward to see what James Franco and Anne Hathaway have up their sleeves as hosts. What are you excited about: the fashion, the winners or the speeches? However you are spending the next two days, do me a favour and enjoy every minute of it, deal? As always here are a few great links from around the web.

Pssst...can you keep a secret? Next giveaway is from here! I'm so looking forward to it:)

How about a fish and chips umbrella?

Street style from behind...(giggle).

One year in 120 seconds.

It's all in the gold.

Have you ever lost something close to your heart? A beautiful reunion story and a video.

I heart eggs. (giggle)

Incredible piece of art!

I want to give them a huge hug right now.

Such a pretty bow headband! (the model is adorable too)...

This mid-century cinnamon drop earrings would add a perfect pop of colour to any outfit...

Dreaming about this lavender milk bath brew. Perfect way to relax after a long, busy day (and a glass of wine)...

Home Inspiration: Bathroom Tray


Oh my goodness, I'm in love with this clever idea of arranging the bathroom cosmetics in a glass tray, on the back-of-the-toilet. A great small space solution. Don't you just love the extra touch with the framed photo and fresh flowers? xo

P.S:  Hope you had a chance to enter our Ruche Giveaway!

P.P.S: Love

Chocolate-Covered Salted Peanut Caramel Cups


Is it just me, or chocolate and peanut caramel sounds like a perfect combination for a cold day like today? Lately I noticed that a pinch of salt makes all types of cakes and cookies even more delicious as it brings out the flavour. Are you craving one of those cups now? (The recipe looks mouthwatering). xo

P.S: caramel and chocolate cake.

Beauty Trend: Spring Updo



According to Glamour Magazine this spring will be all about updo's. The modern version is sexy, slick and fresh! You can wear it down with a side part or up ballerina-style. It would be such an easy yet stylish look for spring bike rides and romantic walks in the park. Dears, would you try it? xoxo

P.S: More adorable hairdos!

Blog Crush


It's official, I'm having a blog crush on Au coin de ma rue. The girl behind it photographs people that she finds unforgettable and that have a certain "je ne sais quoi". The twist is that she posts all the photos in a fun and unique way by separating them into head and toes part. She also has a new project (that I can't get enough of) where she posts a portrait of a person and a selection of items that they chose to "represent them at this moment of their life". So creative! Loves, what items would you choose? xoxo

P.S: Totally smitten with the first girl (those red lips)

Travel Fantasy: Iceland



I think it's fair to say by now that I'm obsessed with the dramatic beauty of Iceland. For some reason I find myself researching this amazing place over and over again. I can totally imagine myself spending a week in one of those little cites. A warm coat, good camera and hot wine, what else could I want, right? Also, on another note: New York, I Love You movie was really interesting. Each of the little stories was so captivating and now I can't wait to see Paris Je T'aime. Thanks for recommending it to me. xoxo

P.S:  If you're not sure about visiting, this will do the trick:)
P.P.S: More here.

Park Your Bike

Monday, February 21, 2011

I think I speak for many of us when I say that storing bikes in apartments is a pain, right? Well, this morning Marie made my day by posting this video. The guy totally found a way. Awesome! Darlings, where do you store your bike? xoxo

Crêpe And Pancake



On my goodness, how good do those pancakes look? I rarely eat them savory (I'm more of a sweet type), but I'm sold. For a whole list of impressive sweet and savory crêpe/pancake recipes check out the NY Times slideshow! Who said that pancakes can only be for breakfast, right? Darlings, what's your favourite type? Do share:) xoxo

P.S: crêpe master piece
P.P.S: caterpillars for breakfast (giggle)

Back yard


Balazs and I love living in our downtown flat but I lately find myself daydreaming about having a little outside green space (besides our balcony) that we could use for summer dinner parties or evenings with a glass of wine. Not to mention that our dogs would totally love having a bit of a round-about too. This green little piece of heaven belongs to Lena and just looking at it makes me wanna grab a book, a blanket and spend the whole day sitting on that white chair! Dears, do you own a little yard or a garden? (if you don't, no worry, here are four ways to still enjoy dinner outside) Brilliant! xoxo

P.S: dreamiest back yards ever!

Have A Sweet Weekend

Friday, February 18, 2011

My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? As you know tonight we're off for a movie screening (after reading your notes, I'm even more excited about it!). If the weather allows, tomorrow we will try to spend the day outdoors with Buffer and Monty. We've been so busy that we didn't give them enough attention this week, so tomorrow will be about them :). As always here are a few great links from around the web. Enjoy!

I heart bicycles:)

The ice book. So clever and creative!

Have you read this interview with Katie Armour? It's such a great read!

I would wear this one in a heartbeat.

1920's locket.

I'm smitten with stripes at home.

I'm all for maxi skirts. Doesn't she look adorable?

This is how you can make homemade burrata! (something I need to try).

This baby monkey makes me smile...

Pretty spring dress.

Also, two more days left to enter our custom design shoes giveaway! Hurry up:)

Loves, wish you a relaxing weekend full of sunshine. See you Monday morning. Love! xoxo

New York, I Love You


Loves, have you seen this movie already? We are invited for the screening tonight at a little artsy cinema. The trailer looks great and I'm really excited to watch it. Any thoughts? xoxo

P.S: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

Now and Then


Mariah created this wonderful series of posts recreating modern day outfits based on personal style of old-school icons. Basiclly she is showing us what those incredible ladies would be wearing nowadays if they were still alive. There are many of my favourites amazing Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. How incredibly spot on are those comperisons? I'm swooning over the Elie Saab's low cut evening gown! Dears, if you could embody an icon, who would it be? xoxo

Ps: I'm loving this dress too.
