I had one of these just last week when I saw a Moroccan style Jonathan Adler rug.
Today's episode was almost as fanatic.
It's just so difficult for me to think logically right now with the all these inspiring decorative thoughts I keep having-- due of the fact that my fiance & I will have a new apartment to decorate in a mere few months.
Nevertheless, today's effervescent moment was when I saw these Artecnica light fittings.
They are just so whimsical & beautifully delicate! ...its unquestionable that a woman will smile at the sight of some pretty blooms....& to potentially have this hanging over your dining table is a magical thought.

Nevertheless, Harper's Bazaar Australia was to have the winner gracing their front page-but have just now release a statement that due to popular demand they would like both finalists on their pages. So half will go to print with Amanda & the other half Kelsey...Quite a debate in the making!
I can't deny it I was a Kelsey supporter she is simply gorgeous. But, Amanda is the final winner & she deserves her glory. Unfortunately her win is being totally eclipsed by the disaster last night & I think publishing 2 covers will just highlight it even further. Would love to hear your thoughts ...

As you would know I am a huge fan of The Sartorialist's & of Garance Dore's so to find someone that comes close to rivalling them is quite the feat.
I would usually post a zillion glorious photographs from CC (which I'm sure to do in the following days) BUT it's Tuesday!! & just wonderfully, CC had a lovely pic of the Torre Eiffel ♥

I did quite well --except for the fact that I had NO MILK!...How is it possible to not have milk...it's more than just a staple --it's MILK!!! Nevertheless, I found some light thickened cream & thought I would improvise. It panned out pretty well. There are quite a few variations on the idea here & here. Below is the one I variably stuck to....
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

ANYWAY! Happy Tuesday!...arent you glad Monday's over? ...I am.
...OK so just as I was about to publish this post I decided to google Eiffel Tower + Pink & came across a few beautiful images. ...& yes ONE WITH CHERRY BLOSSOMS! ...So obviously, I couldn't resist ... two more...xxx

Well practically since their release...the only change of opinion I have had has been on the model...
I craved the 1000d then the 450d...and now it's all about the 550d...even though what I would really LOOVEEE would be the 5d Mark II..but that is simply unrealistic...& it has already taken me an eternity to finally decide I will save up for it...so the time has come...
Luckily my lovely parents fly out for Hong Kong tomorrow evening..they will depart with only one request on my behalf...please take my hard earned cash & purchase me an EOS...I dont want clothes or shoes, nor handbags or jewellery, not a mobile or other new electronic devices...just a mere EOS...
There is but a catch...actually 2....I have only budgeted a certain amount so what if I am short too much? Hong Kong is known to be the King Kong of Well Priced Electronics so they really should deliver!
Otherwise that really would be a little tragic as I'd have to resort to buying it here for a few hundreds of $$$ more! Anyway...the 2nd catch is if all is well & they do purchase the above mentioned item then I will have to wait for it...9 days...again...almost an eternity...but I'm sure I'll survive the excitement.
So my fingers from now on will be crossed & my new mantra will state 'Canon EOS 550D/Rebel T2i with Twin IS Lens Kit'...'Canon EOS 550D/Rebel T2i with Twin IS Lens Kit'....
My fiance threatened (my choice of words) to use it so he can take photos on our honeymoon too... I responded by asking him whether I touch his Playstation3...He understands now.

Although I know too well, I always go through this, I have an obsession with all things black, then all purple, or fire engine red. But now that winter is almost ready to fade into a memory I am completely ready to purchase anything pastel...it's Spring afterall! Maybe I'll pull out a dove coloured cardigan and a pair of peachy flats or maybe carry a pink leather motorcycle bag...I'm also so desperately tempted to paint all walls a pretty eggshell blue trimmed with creme skirting boards... AND I just can't seem to buy enough jewellery pieces encrusted with jewelled roses or daisy chained necklaces...flowers flowers flowers...I want to fill a vase in everyroom...I sound like the pollen in the air may be making me crazy?!?
But really-the glow of the sun, the flowers in bloom...it can't possibly not make you smile...it's a girly girls wonderland...
