Another day at the office
Santu Pretu (Black Sand....the only beach with black pebble stones on the island)
Our monthly meeting :) 
Island life can be great. 

It's been a bit of a different type of week, hence the lack of posts. 
I was in Bogota, Colombia first and then we had our office monthly meeting on the beach. 
Hope you week was great as well. 

Have a splendid weekend. 
Enjoy every moment. 
Smile loads.

Love this skirt. 
So chic

"The gift of time" is above  all the gift of childhood. 

Curiosity, imagination, ingenuity - 
these things would surely be beyond our grasp if, 
day after day, we at Hermes did not cultivate our inner child and it's capacity for 
playing, dreaming and laughter - light as a soap bubbly. 
There lies the unquenchable source of freshness, 
and perhaps, when all's said and done, 
the secret of our grand old age" 

- Pierre-Alexis Dumas - 
Artistic Director of Hermes

Have a beautiful, exciting, laugther-filled weekend. 
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.

Love the yellow on Olivia Palermo in both images. 
The back of the red dress is simply stunning 
And the car....oelala....(looks like something in the garage)

Have a beautifully chic Friday and a splendid weekend. 
May it be filled with love and laughter. 
I will be spending tonight with my dear friends, dressed all in white. 
Tomorrow on race track for testing. 
And Sunday relaxing on the boat.

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)
