Weekend: Your Pets...

Friday, July 30, 2010
 My dearests, what are your plans for this end of July weekend....Can you believe that August is just around the corner? Any plans to see a movie or maybe a romantic date night?
Balazs and I are packing up and heading to the countryside for some hiking, BBQ and sunbathing :)

Instead of my regular "Friday Round Up" I thought it would be fun to share with you all the amazing pet photos you sent to me! I couldn't fit them all here as you all delivered amazingly, so to really celebrate our little/big monsters I created a photo gallery just for you!

Those two pairs of adorable eyes are Kristal's Bama and Paige's Laura...followed by all the other cuties here!!! Check them all out....I bet they will bring out a smile!

Thank you so much for all those adorable pet photos....You are all amazing !!! I had a time of my life looking at and reading about them:)

Have a fantastic weekend and  make sure you kiss someone you love this weekend!

See you Monday morning,

Ps: If by any chance I missed your photo...Please let me know:)

Shades Of Blue...

...I heart navy-blue stripy dresses...and this one has the cutest button and pocket detailing....
...don't you just love this milky-turquoise rough cut necklace?....I am dreaming about wearing it with a simple white tee...
...who dosen't love butterflies...right?...
...navy stripes on pillows? Yes, please!....
...I'm completly smitten with those aqua-blue tourmaline gold earrings...
...those pearly-shell place cards are perfect for summer-beach wedding...

Woke up this morning and the sky was so pretty...all blue without a single cloud..Love days like that:)...My favourite shades of blue are: navy and turquoise...

Do you heart blue?

Kisses, Darlings

Movie Night!

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Balazs and I are treating ourselves to a movie night! We've been so busy lately so tonight is all about movie, candy, popcorn and pop! We are planning to see the Inception. The trailer looks really good and it doesn't hurt that Leonardo DiCaprio is in it, right?

Darlings, have you see the Inception? I would love to know what you thought about it?


Dream Place: Small Rock- Huge House

There are just a few houses I am completely smitten with and this 105-year-old mansion in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay is one of my top favourites. Whenever I need a little inspiration I have a look around :). Mr.Wood is the lovely older man who owns this place and he makes sure that the house is in top form at all times! They even have a ping pong room.....(as a child I used to  play it all the time).

Happy Daydreaming,

Ps:  Fun fact: the house has 65 windows...imagine washing them all:) Also, don't miss the full slide show!

Balloons For Breakfast?

Good Morning, Darlings:)

I am feeling much better this morning. Thank you for all your sweet comments yesterday!
How cool is that balloon breakfast photo?
David Sykes is one of my favourite photographers and here you can check out more of his amazing work...

So what's for breakfast on this sunny Thursday morning?


Ps: I am going with healthy today.....oatmeal with apple and honey:)

Scent Love Affair

Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Darlings, I am on a hunt for a new perfume....I just finished a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel that I got as a present from Balazs's dad a while ago. He always gets me the nicest perfume :) As much as I love the fresh oriental fragrance that totally reflects the spirit of the young 'Coco' Chanel, I am ready for a new scent love affair.
I have Chanel N°5 on my mind.....

Which perfume do you wear?

Kisses, Sweeties:)

Ps: Don't you think that Keira Knightley looks amazing on that photo? She has such a sophisticated look:)

Copy Cat On A Bike!

I would love to dress like this cutie each time I am cruising around on my bike. Don't you love that pretty top?

Darlings, are you giving enough love to you bikes this summer? hahah:)



Ufff...I am a bit under the weather this morning...and whenever I feel like that Balazs makes me a huge cup of tea with lemon, bundles me up in a cozy blanket and puts on some Seinfeld on for me to enjoy:)

What does the trick for you?


Ps: I thought you'd like those two clips...They are very funny:)

What Is The Life You Want?

(via 1 2 3 4)
We all have a quite clear idea of what we want from life....right? Im the first one to admit that I am not quite there yet but for the most part I know how the picture should look like....just have a little trouble in balancing all the elements :)
So, let me ask you, my Darlings: What is the life you want? Is it much different from the one you have?....Nothing is off limits....be honest!

Let's talk:)

Tattoos...Cowboys Boots...Let's Party!

Tattoo wedding rings and cowboy boots for a bride...That is one funky wedding in my opinion!
After looking at Beth and Kevin's wedding photos I can honsetly say that they had a blast :) ...

Have you ever considered getting a tattoo or have you got one already?
I always wanted a tiny one...but I am such a chicken....It must be so painful :)....

Wish you a fantastic morning, Sweeties :)
