Protect yourself

One of my favorite pieces of jewelry is a small gold evil eye pendant I wear on a gold chain on my eye. I am a firm believer that the evil eye protects you and since very young I have been hearing that one should always carry one and I do (on my hands, in a bracelet form). I love the new creations from young designers like Vanesa Kandiyioti, Ileana Makri or Apriati. They do the most gorgeous evil eyes ever. 


Does any of you believe in the evil eye protection?

A food affair

SO yes, as I said yesterday, the weekend was lovely, very very very cold but really lovely. And the visit to Whole Foods was well worth it. The main London store is massive with everything a food lover would love. Now, the cheese room has absolutely everything you (if you love cheese of course) could ever dream. I love how  you can try stuff (not really common in England) around the store. Oh Yummy Whole Foods, you definitely know how to please us!

Sunday Outfit

Hello my dears, oh they come fast these Mondays, don't they? Anyway I try to embrace it as much as possible. We had a great weekend, with some Zara shopping! Every time I go to Zara I realise how much I love it. We also went to Whole Foods, aaah blissful, everything one might want and probably a  bit more. We had some friends over for diner on Sunday and N made the most fab beef fillet. I hope our friends enjoyed their evening. I also had fun putting the table together and making desert. Multicolored and fun was my theme (not really, I just put everything I had together but having a theme sounds better).


and of course there is Sunday outfit, thanks for your lovely feedback last week, so happy you enjoy these cause I really love doing them :) and I especially love this one with the sequins making me happy happy. I bought some stuff fro J.Crew and the fab Alaina send them over, thank you so so so much, love you!!

White dresses


Amidst the Kate Middleton bridal craze, I spent some time looking at bridal gowns, how does one decide what bridal salon to visit when the moment comes? What will Kate Middleton pick? More on that later this week, promise.
Would you go somewhere where you can get many designer wedding dresses or just one brand? I came across this lace beauty in the middle and it kind of rocked my wold. If I was to marry tomorrow, I would definitely struggle!
Here are some of my faves right now.

Rita Konig decorates

I really love Rita Konig but I'm going to be honest, I haven't sen much of her work beside her own homes (which I love). So when I saw this apartment decorated by her I couldn't pass and not share. Nobody lives here, it's a show house at the newly developed Manhattan House. Show houses always look pretty good but cold and lifeless, Rita made it work here, with warm colors and lively details. Who doesn't love her bars and bedrooms? 


What are your weekend plans? We are going to Whole Foods tomorrow to do grocery shopping for Sunday, excited to be hosting a dinner "party". I didn't know the London WF was the second biggest one (in the world?)

Pining Kitchens

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American friends! Wishing you all a beautiful day filled with joy and love. xoxo
*****
This past weekend I found myself pining non stop... kitchens. Yes, my beloved kitchens. So I thought it was only fair to seat down and put together a kitchen post. What? do you see recurrent elements? Yes, me too. That butler sink (*thanks Iona!), open shelves, perfect storage and rustic elements seem to be my ticking boxes.

Johnny Cash is getting married

I'm a big big Johnny Cash fan, statement.
I love weddings and pretty styling, statement.
This styled "wedding" was done by Caroline Colom Vasquez, the artist behind Paloma's nest  for the Southern Weddings Magazine, and shot by Jesse Ryan. This editorial was inspired by Johnny Cash of course, and the plan was to be a mix of rockabilly and DIY country. I think they nailed it. You can read all the details here. 

Sunday Outfit

When I looked at these week's photos I realised how multi colored I was and I remembered what Kendi said some days ago about breaking the rules, she is so so right, who cares! I love my bright colored tights, and I'm planning of enjoying this way of coloring an outfit all winter. Definitely makes me happy.
How was your weekend lovelies? Saturday was very quiet around here. On Sunday we went for lunch to one of N's colleague and even though I wasn't expecting it it was surprisingly enjoyable. Do you have any exciting plans for this week ahead? I know across the pond you will be celebrating Thanksgiving, all ready? 




By the way I'm curious, do you care at all about these Sunday Outfits?

in Tel Aviv

What did catch my eye here? the beautiful original 20's floors. This Tel Aviv apartment conserves most of the original features, high ceilings and long corridors. This is the house of a French in Israel and the french allure is clearly visible in the furniture chosen. This is one of the most respected apartments I have sen lately. Not only the owner has maintained the building vibe but has also used pieces to complement it.   


What are your plans for the weekend? Anything exciting? Mine is definitely going to be low key, just a commitment lunch on Sunday and the rest absolutely FREE!
