“I won’t let myself finish where I began.”
Sustainable style just got to the next level – and who would have thought – thanks to H&M. Lace dress, worn by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, is one of the many jewels in this spring’s H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection. Pictures from here, here, here and here.
Here is a stylish work bag: Michael Kors large Hamilton slate lizard-embossed leather. At first I was hesitant to order online without seeing it in person because sometimes python/croc/ostrich leathers can be too hard and plastic looking. I was also worried about the bag being too shiny. This bag however is gorgeous, feminine and elegant. The […]
Swarovski Maggy Gold Shadow ring is now retired, but I am looking to buy one. If possible I would love to buy the set (ring + pendant), but I will only buy the pendant if it comes with the ring. Ring must: – be original and come with Swarovski international certificate and with proof of […]
Facing winter and snowstorms with warmth and style. Is it possible ? Yes. But to look inappropriatedly dressed for the season is ugly, and to feel cold in cold weather is just stupid. Having lived in Quebec City for 5 years, where your daily winter temperatures are in the -35’s °C combined with winds ranging […]
“I drank on Tuesday , Wednesday and got on the plane drunk on Thursday. And I’m drunk now. Because I am an alcoholic.” Amazing performance by Denzel Washington as a substance abusing airline pilot (Flight, 2012).
A scent that reminded Alix Grès of her “…walks along the long and empty beaches of India: sharp freshness of the morning air, warmth of sandalwood, a touch of flower and comfort of the sea breeze.” It is all about olfactory memory I guess. A scent that reminds me of my mother. As a child […]
Meet Hamburg, Germany.
Most self proclaimed fashion enthusiats are nothing but fashion victms, which is not a good thing. They are in fact, victms of the trends they follow, or worse, they want themselves to be the trend- they end up wearing a weird shape, color, both weird shape and color, or whatever will make them stand out in […]
Who said the devil wears Prada ? Maybe it is L.Credi. Yes, L.Credi. This gorgeous handbag is made of genuine leather in Italy. Selling for 149 Ca$ at Town Shoes (although Town Shoes sells many L.Credi handbags, this specific model is available in stores only). More L.Credi at tkmaxx here. A real fashion find !
Little Miss Sunshine is an incredibly popular movie that came out 6 years ago. Since then, I always wanted to watch it but somehow never did. Until yesterday. This irresistible comedy is about a seven-year old girl, Olive, who qualifies for the “Little Miss Sunshine” beauty pageant to be held in California. Without money to fly, Olive’s dysfunctional family embrace her dream to win Little […]
Last year I attended a seminar where the speaker (Dean of X department at Y University) concluded her talk with the following advice of a survival guide for PhD students and postdocs : “The rule #1 when swimming with sharks is : if you get bitten, don’t bleed”. These cute playmobil images reminded just that. […]
Last week I went to Vancouver to attend a scientific conference. It was not my first time in Vancouver and as expected, the city still looks as gorgeous as I remember + that amazing Orca digitised sculpture- a three-dimensional Orca whale into cubic pixels, which imposingly lights up and shines, taking over the night sky, fresh […]
Damages is by far my favorite TV series in the past decade. Damages is filled with ambition, mystery, intrigue and drama. Glenn Close delivers an astonishing performance as she plays Patty Hewes, a complicated character and powerfull high-stakes litigation lawyer who never loses. But the show goes beyond law, politics and headlines- it is really about power, trust […]
Went to AGO this morning to see their Picasso exhibit and was very pleased. I think last time I went to a Picasso exhibition was more than 6 years ago ! Unbelievable how time goes by so fast… I hope I’ll get the chance to go to Paris later this year. I miss that cultural […]
Brilliant. I couldn’t stop reading until the last page. Experimental Heart is Jennifer Rohn’s first novel. A romantic thriller set in the lab. I can’t wait to read her second book, The Honest look, also rated 5 stars by many..
Wondering what will happen to Nikon’s 1 system and their small sensor, what to expect from Canon, and what’s “nex” for Sony NEX series… I’m dying to buy a Nikon interchangeable, but a slightly larger sensor wouldn’t be bad… UPDATE 25/07/2012 : Canon just released their first mirrorless interchangeable. Not impressed by the features (sensor […]
