Paris is the dream.

If I was to have one wish it would be to live in Paris. I can imagine having a successful job, maybe in fashion, living in a little apartment building in the middle of Paris, drinking coffee in a Parisian café and exploring everything it has to offer! I love the busy-lifestyle and the French language and culture. I have only visited France once when I was 10 and admittedly we spent most of the time in Disneyland but I dream of going there again and next time I will make an effort to really make it count!

What came in the post today...

A couple of things from Topshop: I love the skirt, it's really comfortable, the shape is flattering and it's very lightweight (not too good in the wind!). After hearing great reviews for Topshop Leigh jeans I decided to give them a try, they are so lovely, soft and also fit perfectly - like a second skin! I'm really excited to see what I can wear with these :)

Cut and Stick!

I love reading magazines, well to be perfectly honest I prefer looking at the photographs and clothes. To keep inspiration alive I decided to grab a copy of ELLE, cut/rip out some of my favourite spreads, ads and edits and stick them above my bed.

Also hope you all had a good, chocolate-fueled Easter! :)

Café Hopping

Café hopping with Dawn and Jack at Trenabies and The Reel.
There's nothing like a nice afternoon spent in a few cozy cafés with good company, coffee and conversation. In my opinion a good café should include: an inviting atmosphere, comfortable seats, relaxing music and most  important of all, good coffee.

Elie Saab

I love Elie Saab's beautiful dresses, they are so intricate and each and every detail is payed careful attention to. Elie Saab is an expert in highlighting a woman's silhouette, everything he does is calculated and his dresses have such radiance, it seems that light just bounces off them like jewels. His floor sweeping gowns flow gorgeously. He uses fine materials and delicate beads and embroidery to create stunning feminine garments that have clothed many notable clients such as Queen Rania of Jordan, Princess Sirivannavari of Thailand and celebrities including; Rhianna, Christina Aguilera, Halle Berry, Katy Perry and Mila Kunis.

Elie Saab's interest in dress-making started at the age of 9 when he began to create dresses for his sisters and then  in his adolescence moved on to selling his items to women in his neighborhood. His main inspiration is the capital city of Lebanon, Beirut, where he was born and where he still maintains his workshop. His creations can be found all over the globe in boutiques in Paris, London and Beirut. His latest haute couture collection, Spring/ Summer 2012 is incredible and I thought I would share some of it with you.

Hello Spring?!

This morning it was beautiful weather so I decided it was a good time to take some pictures! Only a few minutes after walking out of the door it started snowing and then a few minutes later it became sunny again. I hate unpredictable weather! Anyway, today I was going for a kind of ethereal look mixed with some tough boots and a blazer. 
Also: thanks to my brother who photographed me!
