Loving these Hermes bracelets 
and dreaming of Paris

We had such a lovely weekend. 
Loads of relaxing, family dinner out on the porch, cooking on the boat, reading and just enjoying. 
It was a rainy and (cold...hmmm...24 degrees is cold for this island) weekend. 
Now it's back to work, espresso on the table to start another wonderful week. 

Smile Loads

Usually I am a very girly girl. I love the tiny details of the Laduree boxes, blush coloured heels, flowers and Dyptique candles, beautiful perfume and the luxury of a long bubble baths. But tonight (and last weekend) I will be at the Drag-races with Mr. D. I am slowly but surely learning how to (productively) be part of the racing team....which includes working on the engine....which means grease and oil....everywhere. I am learning though...(and the baby wipes are near me......no matter how much the guys laugh at it). It is fun though, and I am happy to part of it. 
So before all that coolness of motorsports, I will leave you with some exquisite images of Tiffany's, peonies and Paris. 

Have a splendid weekend.

"Logic will get you from A to B. 
Imagination will take you everywhere"
-Albert Einstein-

Have a beautiful weekend. 

A few lovely sites to visit over the weekend

On a little side note. 

Some how I had never imagined I would be buying (or receiving) a perfume labelled as Haute Parfumerie. (and to tell you the truth....when I did receive it I had no clue is was this....until I did some reseach). The scene was as followed; my mom and I were enjoying all the loveliness that a stroll through Harrods can bring when on our way out we noticed a range of perfumes, one of which....incredibly....is called Parti Pris (yep.... incredible). Of course we made some small talk, received a few samples and wandered off to dinner in Soho. Hours later the scent of the perfume was still beautiful, and thus, on our last day in London we made our way back to Harrods (cause, really who minds a trip to Harrods) and we each got one of the delightful frangrances by Terry de Gunzburg. (mine...as you might guess.....is Parti Pris......). 

The other scents in the Haute Parfumerie collection are Rêve Opulent (hyacinth, rose, floral notes), Lumière d’Épices (spicy woods), Ombre Mercure (iris, violet, patchouli, woods), and Flagrant Délice (fig, green notes, gourmand accord) and Parti Pris (tuberose, jasmine, ylang-ylang)

Good morning and welcome to yet another beautiful Friday morning. 
It is a bit cloudy on this paradise island, but at my parents home all is pink. 
My aunt will be arriving from Amsterdam today for a short visit and we are surprising her with a baby-shower in honor of her granddaughter that will be born in a few weeks. 
Beautiful pink candles, pink balloons and sweet colored plates.....with loads of delicious food of course. 

Have a splendid weekend. 
May it be filled with smiles, laughter and some pink.

Dior Pre-Fall 2012

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful week in January.
This weekend I was feeling a bit under the weather.
(I was well taken care of though)
Today things are looking up, which feels great.

Am loving these shades and designs by Dior. Incredibly feminine as always.
Visit Dustjacket Attic for the remaining images; Paris is featured in such a lovely way.

Have a beautiful week.
May it be filled with flowers, butterflies and loads of smiles.
