happy friday

Friday's are a great day. Not only is the weekend right at your doorstep, it also offers a moment to dream a little. Today I am dreaming of Paris and Norway. Two vastly different places. Both gorgeous in their own way.

Hope you have a dreamy weekend as well. xx

Thank you for visiting, Pris x

Paris
The ultimate delight. The Macaron.

The ultimate delight. The Macaron.

Oh the lovely Ritz.

Oh the lovely Ritz.

“Paris was a universe whole and entire unto herself, hollowed and fashioned by history; so she seemed in this age of Napoleon III with her towering buildings, her massive cathedrals, her grand boulevards and ancient winding medieval streets—as vast and indestructible as nature itself. All was embraced by her, by her volatile and enchanted populace thronging the galleries, the theaters, the cafes, giving birth over and over to genius and sanctity, philosophy and war, frivolity and the finest art; so it seemed that if all the world outside her were to sink into darkness, what was fine, what was beautiful, what was essential might there still come to its finest flower. Even the majestic trees that graced and sheltered her streets were attuned to her—and the waters of the Seine, contained and beautiful as they wound through her heart; so that the earth on that spot, so shaped by blood and consciousness, had ceased to be the earth and had become Paris.”
— Anne Rice

Norway

Soon the window glass becomes cool to touch as the train climbs more than 1,000 metres into a bare, otherworldly landscape of boulders and snowdrifts, navigating beautiful but treacherous mountain country through high passes and tunnels hewn from solid rock.

moooi

In our office we have a few stunning, almost glittering, lamps by the Dutch brand Moooi. It is wonderful to walk into the office each morning and see the pieces of art.

Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers started the company more than 10 years ago. From lighting to storage, the brand features a range of innovative and eye-catching designs that add both comfort and oomph to any room.

a challenge

Preparation is key with anything I believe, and enthusiasm is vital. Though challenges (in this specific case, presentations in front of large audiences) are usually not easy (and they tend to keep you up at night), I do believe that they make you better in the end.

To calm things down - have you seen this gorgeous dress by Jason Wu? Am loving it.
