Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s the last day of May, I guess I really should finish this post which has been in my draft folder for quite some time. For those of us who appreciate Hermès, a trip to Paris won’t be complete without dropping by one of their stores. Among all H stores in Paris, the newly opened one on the left bank is my absolutely favorite. There is nothing spectacular from the outside. However, stepping inside, the first thing that embraces you is the smell. Since the entrance of the store is a flower shop bursting with most gorgeous blooms by florist Baptiste Pitou. Further inside comes the most amazing part of the store, an installation made of curved strips of ash wood by architect Denis Montel. More surprises come when you walk further, there are even a book shop and a tea bar inside! The three floored store is used mainly to showcase furniture and homewares. But you can also find a small counter for scarves as well as one section for leather goods. Even if you are not into Hermès, their store on Rue de Sèvres is well worth a visit. ;-)

Sometimes finding the right bag is like finding a soul mate – is about being lucky. You just need to have a little faith, trust yourself and trust what gives you pleasure. :-D
Unlike some of my friends who prefer bags without veining, I, on the contrary, adore them. They make a bag less “perfect”, but marvelous and natural in each her own unique way…
We’ve been to Paris countless times, but still can’t get enough of this remarkable city. <3
I guess it’s not only about the historical spots, the arts, the foods, the fashion and these awe-inspiring small shops… The charm of the city lies in the way the Parisian lives their life.
There they are enjoying their life. Well, as you can see, even their dogs are doing so. ;-P
We’ll take a Spring getaway to Paris next week, so I am leaving you today with some eye candies from Vogue Germany’s May issue. Love the colors and the puristic touch of these photos, hope you like them too.
Have a wonderful weekend, see you in a week! :-)

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We spent five relaxed days visiting family and meeting friends. The weather was so terrific which allowed us to stay most of the time outdoors in the gorgeous sunshine.
It’s insane how fast time flies, especially when you’re having a good time. Don’t you agree? Enjoy Spring while it lasts! BTW, I’ll be back to the fashion challenge game in my next post. ;-)
Normally I don’t do lengthy posts with loads of photos, because it might take too long to load a page. For me, 3 seconds is the absolute limit. If a page does not appear in 3 seconds, I’ll mostly close the tab and go elsewhere. Ok, I know that patience is a virtue, but unluckily I wasn’t born with a lot of it (maybe I should blame this on my mom? lol~~).
However, I do want to share a picturesque article today. It is such a treat for the eyes, so I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I do. Last but not least, have a fabulous weekend! :-D

Peonies are my all time favorite flower. I adore the different shades of pink (it’s kinda weird because I’m not even a pink fan. But when it comes to peonies, pink is THE color ;-P). The paper thin petals made me realize how lighthearted, vivid and subtle pink can be <3. Besides, Peonies smell so heavenly delicate, and they last a pretty long time as cut flowers…
And… Gosh, it’s really hard to find the best way to describe my love for peonies, because they are just too gorgeous for words. lol~~
I adore the way Hermès do their ads & campaigns: the understated mood, the sense of freedom, the spark of creativity…
And on top of all: beautiful with a playful spirit. Have a wonderful new week!

BTW, the photo with two hands up in the air is my absolute favorite. <3
- Roses in fuchsia, dusty pink & bright yellow.
- Le Monde d’Hermès Printempts-Été 2011.
- The Gentlewoman Issue nº 3.
- A black sheer shirt with gorgeous embroidery collar & trim.
Spring is finally here. Have a great new week! :-D
I’ve been always fascinated by the magic of the white shirt, not because it is a cult fashion classic, but how a simple piece of white cloth could appear so unique, so powerful and so effortless chic.
I have couple of lovely pieces in my closet but for the coming Spring/Summer season, I’m hoping to find more interesting white shirts. Just can’t get enough of them. ;-)
