EMERALD ISLE...

… THE GREENEST MILE, YOU DID BEGUILE.


Breezing at the Cliffs of Moher

This one week trip was everything and more that I had hoped for - stimulating, surprising, relaxing and invigorating. My travel soul mate and I were very, VERY lucky with the weather (otherwise - truth be told - it is not a worthwhile destination. Because with the slightest bad weather/mist/fog, one will not be able to witness the scenery most importantly/or do anything exciting really)(no wonder the locals spend their existence in pubs drinking!). We thanked the sun and clear blue sky every day, happy to have hit the jackpot (#hittingthesunpot)! Irish people were always friendly, helpful and jolly for the most. This experience to me was emotional more than anything. Maybe because of a mix of the wondrous sights every day, and the point in my life where I have come to accomplish many things in a short amount of time (new flat, new job…). All the same, I remind myself, and everyone, that sometimes in life all you need is:  

Book a plane ticket, 
secure a car and a good map, 
and drive endlessly wherever the wind may take you. 

JUST LIVE FOR THE MOMENT. FIND THE WAY TO YOUR WILL, AND JUST DO IT.

MOVING IN

Had I 7 dwarves and the entire enchanted forest's animals, I'd be happily catching up with the blog (while the birds bake for me too)... 
Since ofc that ain't the case, well, sorry but I'm temporarily brooming away. 
[So much for Bibidi Bobidi Boo!]

SAG Awards (or more like Julia's dress)

Better late than never!*


Julia Roberts at the Screen Actors Guild Awards

'Chaaa arm ing'
Julia, I love you. In Pretty Woman, Stepmom, Erin Brockovich, even in Oceans Twelve, and especially in Eat, Pray, Love, you're such an incredibly charismatic and inspiring actress. 
How can we not love you! 

And yes you've aged beautifully, have a great natural figure for a mother of 46... ok, so what's my point? Remember my Golden Globes '14 post ? Well, I just thought I'd support my argument over her D&G dress - which not many people liked - in a 'see what I meeean' way, where to me personally, as dazzling as she is, her arms covered are simply more appealing. 
Nooow you sort of agree and like her first look? Mmmh... =) 
Can't wait to see what she'll wear at the Oscars...!



* (It always feels satisfyingly nice to use this sentence in such cases... right? Like 'Meh...', but heeey, better laaate than neevaaa... *wink*)

Oh Dior...

February 12, 1947

Quick sketch of 'Bar' ensemble 
... 67 years ago on this day, Monsieur Dior presented his historical Haute Couture collection, introducing the one and only 
'New Look'.
Taille de guêpe, plus de plis... et la jupe est tombée!
What a surprise, what a shock, what a sudden change in the world of mode! One that revolutionized women's dress forever, rejuvenated style from the ashes of the war, and reinforced Paris as the leader in Fashion. The city's streets are stirring; some women are applauding the return of their lost femininity, while others are fighting against it. 
Probably the most expensive garment to own at that time, with all the fabric used - what a luxury. Equally so, the most detested for it in days of rationing - what arrogance.
Oh but that is why I love this man! 

Cheers genius x

PRINT PERFECT

#ADZLIKEY


 Shoes - Office & iPhone 5 cover by GetUncommon 

My two favorite prints of the moment! 

LEOPARD & CAMO

To me however, when it comes to print, it has to be the right kind (by that I mean the shapes, and especially the colors). These two are JUST right.
Either Rain stop for a while please, or Spring come a bit quicker for me to SLIP-ON those x
