Smells Like Spring

Hello Lovelies ! I've been awfully sick since last Tuesday. Tried to blog a bit, but the flu got the best out of me! I still feel a little sick but could not refrain from telling you about Liberty's new fabrics! Feminine, floral, and so evocative of Spring... Like they say at "PurlSoho" : Often imitated, never duplicated. Liberty style is characterized by tender palettes, attractive flowers, and detailed movement. What is there not to love?! And the new collection designed by Tana Lawn? To die for! Since I'm a big fan of... [Lire la suite]

A Nice Lil Blog Update

Hello Lovelies! I won't intended to not make you wait too long, and without further ado, I will show you the timeless armchair, as seen by the magazines of www.cotemaison.fr. And put the image right here in this space. Where it belongs. ;-) But, as crazy as i am, I waited for my sweetheart for a whole 15 (!) minutes in the cold, cold, pouring rain, not conscious that even *I*, that always takes her daily vitamin C and carries a little piece of ginger in her pocket, will eventually get the flu! So here's my ginger tea, inspired... [Lire la suite]
