Whisper Me Your Secret.....

NYC is extraordinary for a million reasons, but only a few places makes this city magical. Today, I decided to share with you one of my favorite places (it's nothing crazy, and it's in all of the ny guides), but it doesn't make this place any less fun to walk through: The Whisper Gallery in Grand Central. You have to be two to go there. Both of you should face the wall on opposite corners of the arched entryway and whisper something. The acoustic of the arches will make the smallest sound audible to the person on the other side. 



If you happen to go there...just share a secret!

Les Chaussettes de l'Archiduchesse

" Les chaussettes de l'archiduchesse sont-elles s├Ęches? ......Archis├Ęches! " (if you are a french speaker, you have learned to repeat this phrase numerous time super fast...how many times can you repeat it without mispronouncing it ?!) If you don't speak french, all you should know is that it is pretty hard). 
This 'hard to pronounce brand of socks' is great. Just take a look... Each pair is 6 or 9euros.

VS for.....Very SexY

You know how sometimes you have a shirt that you wish you could wear a little more unbuttoned because it would make you look just that tiny bit more sexy. Problem is, once unbuttoned you look like a total slut and with a tank top under it just looks blah... Solution to your problem: This bra! 
I should also say that the bra actually looks way better than on this picture (however it might look better on these girls but that's a whole other story). I am such a big fan of this bra, you have no idea. It is slightly push up but nothing too crazy (no it wont make a guy imagine that you have huge boobs and then be all disappointed once he will be undressing you, I promise!)

Summer On My Nails

The weather was again amazing today! My body is clearly not ready for this early summer so I decided to accept the weather by going for more 'summer-ish' nails. 10 Nails with the 'East Hampton Cottage' followed by two layers of 'A Cute Above' on only one nail.

Minor Obsessions

I am probably talking about this brand because I just love how it is called: MINOR OBSESSIONS. We are all obsessed with way too many things, and often obsessions lead to....spending money (nothing new here),  but I decided it was ok as long a it was making us happy?! The more obsessions you have, the more stupid things you will do, the best you will become at finding excuses for yourself... some would call it a vicious cycle, but not me ;-)

Dog Bone Charm. $85


 Blue Sapphire Evil Eye Charm. $220
Angel Wing Bracelet. $85

Sparkle in Cheap Flats!

Spring is back! (or is it Summer?!) Today the sun was shining on NYC...and crazy New Yorkers decided to 'layer-down'. Girls were wearing skirts and tank tops  (should I remind everybody that it is only the 8th of March?!) Even though I was wearing more clothes than most of the population, I really wanted to go shopping for the spring season and enjoy the splendid weather, but it didn't happen because  I had to work (and my finances are not so so good.... :-) but I still found something! (it is super super cheap I promise)


Ballerinas. At Payless for $16
(should I also add that they are very comfortable)

RedFarm in the City

Last Saturday I discovered one of these magical 'made in nyc' place. I was in the West Village with one of my girlfriends and we decided to have lunch at the REDFARM. It was my first time going there, but it definitely was not my last... The concept of the restaurant is 'Innovative, Inspired Chinese Cuisine with Greenmarket Sensibility'. The food is incredibly tasty and full of flavors, the decor is simple cozy and stylish. This restaurant is probably the best finding of 2012 (so far...). Should I add that the restaurant has been at the top of the best restaurant list in the Time Out magazine for months and that while having lunch Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin and kids came in to spend some quality family time...




These PacMan dumplings just cracked me up...
But there one thing that you simply HAVE to order : the Kowloon Filet Mignon Tarts 
(it is to die for....)

Go Crazy. Go Pro.

You know how some days you feel like buying a plane ticket and just go see the world, scuba diving in Australia, ride a motorcycle through Europe, going hiking in Cambodia, horse riding in Tibet,.... Today was one of these days! Not to worry, I just ended up taking a train to Connecticut (for work).... how intriguing, right?! Anyhow, to satisfy my crazy brain and its crazy thoughts, I watched videos on youtube of Go Pro (you know that brand who makes the wearable cameras..) http://gopro.com/


The concept is just unbelievable, and here is an article on how it became so great. Just Click HERE  if you want to read it. 

Just Hit Replay...

This is the song I have been listening to all day... hitting replay approximately 47times...

Caesar is Back!

Or at least his Golden Greek Leaves of Laurier are...Yes, I am back with the headband talk. Why? Because I found the most amazing headbands. It's simply a new level of awesomeness... The brand is called EDDERA and all the celebrities are wearing them. Just look at the pictures and you will understand. They are delicate, golden, and they will add that special little touch!

They are each $160

Icelandic Cold

I was so cold all day today. Was it because I was wearing a thin sweater, a tank top, and a jean with a big hole on the knee? Probably... My hands were and still are freezing cold. I just wanted to tuck them under someone's shirt...but instead decided to just take a warm bath and change into warmer clothes (less fun but just as effective ;-)  BUT this whole story about my cold hands was actually to talk about Iceland, and about the brand FARMERS MARKET. All of their designs are made in Iceland with 'Icelandic Wool'. It is a superior type of wool. As these sheep have never been in contact with other breed-they are pure and so are their wool... Charly loves this 'lumberjack' style.

Music of the Day....by M83

A couple months ago (maybe a little more than that) I heard a song and was immediately hooked..the only problem was that I didn't remember the name of it or the name of the group or basically anything about it except that I loved it. I was browsing on youtube, listening to different songs when out of nowhere the song came up!!!! How awesome?! Pretty Awesome for me I can tell you that...and hopefully good enough for you...

M83. Graveyard Girl. 
Ok, the title might be a little off putting but I swear the song is good.
My favorite part is when she starts talking (at the 2'15seconds something)

That group does less creepy stuff as well that I love almost as much as this song

M83. We Own the Sky
Listen to this while getting ready for your day 


HappY SundaY PeepS. 


Rock My Socks

My best friend and I have mums with the same taste in socks (such a weird way to start a post)...but we would always end up with the same socks... And not only that, socks would be something that we would also receive for certain events (Bdays, Xmas, Easter,...)
Weird? Possibly, but socks for us are special, and thus must be chosen with care. Our favorite brand: ANTIPAST. It is a Japanese brand and they create the coolest socks.

Ginette NY

Here is my favorite Jewelry store in the city. Ginette NY makes thin and refined jewelry. If you are looking for a simple golden chain with something special, this is going to be your place. This French jewelry designer is very talented and her new spring collection is gorgeous...




She also creates jewelry for kids and it is simply to die for...

The Oscars

Yesterday night I watched the Oscars (who in the US didn't...) It was the best Oscar Ceremony I have ever watched (or maybe that's what I am thinking because last year was pretty dreadful...I am not a big fan of Anne Hathaway...)
The most stunning celebrity of the night: Gwyneth Paltrow. Tom Ford designed her dress and it was the definition of simplicity and beauty....

"my life is sweet like cinnamon"

I finally decided to buy Lana Del Rey's album on itunes and I loooooooove it. She might have signed a contract before putting her songs on Youtube, she might be criticized for a million other things.... I really like what she does, and she looks gorgeous!!!!


Born to Die



My Fav Songs from the Album: Off to the Races & This is what makes us Girls.

Are they Real?!

I have been looking for a good mascara that was easy to apply and which would make my eyes POP. I read on a couple of blogs that the best was a product from Benefit. I thought that this mascara was going to be over rated because everybody was being way too positive about it. Truth is: They're Real by Benefit is the Best Mascara I have ever used. The first day I used it someone told me that my eyes were really popping out!

MoNoCle...my new Fav' Magazine

What magazines do you usually read? I usually read the Time Magazine, The Bloomberg News Magazine (wish that would make me look smart but it's just because the illustrations are way more fun than the economist :-) , Vogue, Elle, and some crappy not worth reading magazines when I am having a mani/pedi done. And as of now, someone made me discover the BEST magazine ever: MONOCLE.
This magazine will give you a 'global briefing on international affairs, culture and design'.  (their words, not mine). It s pretty much a summary of what's going on in the world, and what's cool. (my words).





Go buy it, you are going to love it!

Short. Short. Short

My hair are long, highlighted, broken. If not brushed for a few hours, I have dreads all over my head which, don't get me wrong, could be pretty awesome if I was living in Australia, owned a surf shop and had a freaking amazing tanned body. Not happening...I live in NY, work too much, eat too much, spend too much time watching reality tv instead of working out! So, here is what I was thinking: A new hair cut. Maybe not for now, maybe for the next Fall season?! Definitely want you to tell me what you think about it. Like it?!  I think Michelle Williams looks ridiculously cute!
