This sensational apartment by Brazilian designer Fabrizio Rollo is the perfect balance between classic and modern, old and new, elegant and fun. A great little feast for the eyes. You can take the entire tour here. And some fun weekend reading links -
I love how bright and positive green can be (leaving all green-eyed monsters aside). A few bright picks for you to elevate your mood and yes, St. Patty's is less than a month away.
Large and unique earrings are a weakness of mine. I have converted a few friends to this look and they haven't looked back since. I think large earrings are a way to make a statement without having to go out and buy new clothes. It's kind of like getting new pillows for your sofa without having the expense of reupholstering, you know? A fabulous pair of earrings can make you look smashing. This is why I want to share Carolina Damas' latest creations. They are TO DIE FOR. Her combination is unbeatable- fabulous design, perfect color palettes, high quality, hand-made, easy to wear and very nicely priced (they all range from between $28 to around $60). Uhm, yes please!
You may remember when I first introduced her earrings to you here. Well, now I own three pairs and am not exaggerating when I tell you that whenever I wear them at least three people ask me about them. They are eye-catching and beautiful. You just want to look at them and hold them because their workmanship is so fabulous. I have always loved supporting entrepreneurs and artists and Carolina Damas is both! Take a look at what I'm crazy about. I'm sure you will be a convert too.
This photo gives 'Happy Friday' new meaning! A sublime little corner of this gem of a jewelry store (no pun intended!) in Mumbai, India! You have to see the rest of this beauty here. Another day, another week and Spring just gets closer and closer. A few fun links to keep you entertained throughout the weekend-
|| Four ingredient flourless brownie bites. Very Curious!
|| The latest hair trend. I have now passed on all the bows my mom and I used to wear some years back to Little Miss A (she is not so little anymore, I think it's time we moved on to Miss A). Maybe I can borrow them back?
|| Our trip to the Galapagos Islands a few years ago was very special. I loved reading this article on five reasons why you should visit.
|| A fun and inexpensive top with bows is always a good idea.
|| This is the chicest straw bag of the season.
|| This bathing suit has the prettiest back I ever did see.
Have a wonderful and bright weekend!
