Scarf Talk

Thursday, September 30, 2010
I must say that scarves are an essential part of my wardrobe and as much as I love them long and cozy, I might just reconsider getting a few of those sassy small handkerchief-like scarves. They probably would not keep me warm but they look totally adorable on Mav :) Dears, would you wear them? xoxo

Tie Me Down

My bow obsession continues with charming soft-leather bow-tie bracelets. Don't you just love the pinked edges on those cuties? I'm sold! xoxo

Sailing, Baby!

 Last night I was talking to a friend about kids, boats (you know, all that girly stuff) and suddenly I remembered the free feeling you get while sailing! Dears, how does hopping onboard of Windjammer in Rockland, Maine sound? Just image the cool breeze dancing with your hair, eating homemade sandwiches with pickles and keeping an eye out for birds and seals. Ohh...what a dream, there is no other feeling like that!...How is that for a weekend fantasy? xoxo

Wednesday Giveaway!

Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Today’s giveaway is from LeCosmetique, my favourite cosmetic and beauty shop with the best pro-quality products.
LeCosmetique is offering one of you, my Dears a chance to win two of my favourite products that we think each girl should own. You can win this amazing make-up brush set and OCC lip tar in the colour of your choice. I adore carrying my brush set with me as you never know when you need a bit of touch up. I am also totally hooked on the lip tar in “memento” shade. It’s the best of both worlds ( it has the longevity of a lipstick, with consistancy of a gloss). Ohh… and it stays on my lips, not on the wine glass:) It doesn’t get better than that!
So, let’s get started!

For a chance to win you should be a follower of exPress-o, please visit the LeCosmetique website and leave a comment below. A winner will be chosen at random on Sunday night. Good Luck! xoxo

Ps: Please spread the word for extra entries :)

Berlin House Tour

This Berlin apartment belongs to Malin Elmlid. It gives the most incredible vintage vibe with amazing wooden finish. Image walking barefoot on those herringbone floors! Don't you just love the easy going decor approach, all the natural light and the sky-high ceiling?  xoxox

Ps: Stay tuned for GIVEAWAY Wednesday...

Baby Face

Tuesday, September 28, 2010
 Isn't it incredible how expressive babies are? How can I not have a baby fever looking at this little guy pulling all those cute faces? xoxo

Take It Outside!

High on my wish list is to attend an Outstanding in the Field dinner party one day. Their concept is so popular that the tickets are selling out like hot buns! Just image sitting in a spectacular location, eating delicious food prepared by a local gourmet chef and enjoying conversation with total strangers, while taking in all the beauty that surrounds you! Ahhh....It must be one of those surreal, out of the world experiences...What do you think? Where would you set up your table? xoxox

Ps: You can see all the photos here!


I am a natural brunette but I’ve always had a thing for red hair. I often wonder if I could pull off the fiery look but in the meantime, I am going to lust over those beautiful redheads. The colour is so sassy and mysterious....Dears, what do you think? What is your favourite hair colour? xoxox

Ps: If you love redheads, you will love this blog!

Balazs and I are obsessed with soups. It all started last autumn with smitten kitchen's garlic soup and since then, Balazs got really hooked on making creamy and fulfilling pots of goodness! By now we gathered about four different recipes that we love: the garlic, creamy spinach, sweet potato & chilli and gazpacho soup (hot version). We are ready to try something new, so I would like to ask: do you have any recommendations? What is your all time favourite soup? xoxo

Ps: This French onion soup made me literally lick my monitor screen :)

Stripes - All The Rage?

I can't image my closet without stripes. Each time I see someone sporting a great sailor look I can't help but smile. This morning I saw a girl wearing a blue on blue stripy tee and it looked great..I usually go with the classic white-navy combination...Darlings, are you on the stripy bandwagon?  xoxox

Girls Trip...Here We come!

Morning, Dears! Me and a few of my girl friends decided to take a "girls trip" sometime in February, but we are having trouble choosing a destination as we are all located in different countries. We are thinking London because we all love the city. So, I need a bit of your help. Which European city would you choose for your fun-girly-weekend away? xoxox

I think every teacher would love one of those apples (cupcakes)

This Week's Gems - The Red Edition

...Cozy Cambridge cardigan is always a must (stripes are a plus)...
...Those ruby earrings would look charming with red lipstick, don't you think?...
...Scarlet rose to add some romance to your table setting...(great detail for a napkin holder)...
...Aww...I heart that necklace...Simple and sweet!...
...Vintage brooch would look so stylish on a dark coat...

The other day I was looking for something red to wear as I read that it's a great colour to perk your mood when you feel tired. Guess what? There was not even one red item in my closet so I need to get cracking and get one of those cuties. What colour are you missing in your closet? xoxox

Wedding: First Look

There are a few very special moments during a wedding day but the one I always look forward to is the "first look". The most intimate, emotional and overwhelming of all moments, when the groom sees his wife-to-be for the first time on the day of their festivities. Oh, dear!...I get  goosebumps just thinking about it. In my eyes, these photos of Becca and Brooks captured that moment to perfection! When was the first time your hubby-to-be saw you during your special day? xoxox

Tea Crush - no, literally!

Thursday, September 23, 2010
I am terribly clumsy when it comes to washing cups...I break them all the time - which is actually a blessing in disguise because it's an excuse to buy new ones!...hahah...I love those buddha bowls. Just looking at them makes me wanna do some dishwashing. Well, off to the kitchen and see what happens :) xoxo

Ps: What’s your favourite type of tea?

Let Your Hair Bloom!

I'm determined to fight off autumn blues, and bring back some spring fever - these charming flower headbands made by Nicolette will do just that. I often find myself wearing my hair in a bun as it's an easy bad hair fix, so these are the perfect cover-up :) xoxox

Ps: Don't forget to enter our GIVEAWAY...if you haven't already:)

Get Into The Mix

Mmmm...I am craving something chocolaty (especially after looking at this fudge frosting) hahaha. Doesn’t it look scrumptious? What is your favourite chocolate fix? xoxox

Ps: It's almost like one of those abstract images your shrink would show you and ask: What do you see on this picture? :)

(thanks Sasha)
