Happy New Year!



We're always a mix of feelings during these days.
It's time to draw conclusions...we're nostalgic because of the time passing by but at the same time we hope for a fresh new start.
Finding new passions, experiencing something new, accepting all the invitations, discovering new places, to upset our routine or to create one.
Every year it's the same old story about the new year's resolutions.
What about mine? i think these lines are the best way to explain them:

Santa baby...been an angel all year! ;-)





♬ ♩Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree, for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, a '54 convertible too, light blue, 
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellows that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my christmas list

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really thats not a lot
Been an angel all year 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed 
To a platinum mine, 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and cheques, 
Sign your x on the line 
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my chirstmas tree, 
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you, 
Let's see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring,
I don't mean on the phone, 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight ♬ ♩

Midnight in Paris



"I mean this is unbelievable! Look at this...there's no city like this in the world, there never was! I don't get her often enough, that's the problem...can you picture how drop dead gorgeous is this city in the rain? Imagine this town in the '20s...Paris in the '20s in the rain, the artists and the writers..."

We LOW shopping ♥ : Christmas Edition 1


Maybe it's because of the hot chocolate i'm tasting right now or because of the Christmas tree in gold and beige tones.

SCENTsational





"Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions or will.
The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally.
There is no remedy for it."


                                                                              (From the novel "Perfume" by Patrick Suskind)

A little bit of street-style.


"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only; 
fashion is something in the air, it's the wind that blows in the new fashion; you feel it coming you, you smell it...in the sky, in the street ;
fashion has to do with ideas ,the way we live and what is happening."
(Coco Chanel)
