Tonight was special!!! After several months curious about a place, finally I got to know La Fromagerie!

Actually it all started because of a burrata, a fresh italian cheese, kind of a mozzarella, but creamy inside!!! Delicious!!! Well, I had to find a place that sold burrata in London- so google, google, google...La Fromagerie.

And tonight we went to this tasting event, cheese and wine from the south west of France !!! The place is great!!! I highly recommend if you are in London! The ambiance is wonderful, people are kind, the food is amazing, they know what they are talking about (insight: I love people who knows what they are talking about!). Happy, happy, happy!

they know how to do it

Please experience!!!

The first one is from Lilly Allen who has launched her vintage shop in London (with sister Sarah Owen)! LUCY IN DISGUISE LONDON.
The place is really cool but the video when you get into the website is great! It translates so well what the brands stand for: " the modern girl's way to do vintage,  a bit of old glamour estravaganza!"

(I specially love the pink lips as the mouse icon!!!!)

Now, the second one is a real experience!!! It's simply amazing!
Perrier has partnered with Dita Von Teese and look at the result!!!! FANTAS"TIC"!!!

Please, please, please!!! Get into the website now!!! Do it for me!!!

whisky + make up...niiiiceeee

Coincidence or not, 2 weeks ago I was in Milan a bought a tartan pattern case for my iPhone.

And today I found out the new collection for MAC called "a tartan tale"...I love when MAC does this make up sets!!! It doesn't matter you have plenty of make up already, you don't "need" any new colours, it's ALL ABOUT HAVING THOSE SETS! Got me? I'm sure you did!
And the idea of bringing something so traditional as the tartan pattern into make up is great! No, no, it's not great, more than that, it's cool!!!

As MAC says:
" it's a tale to celebrate holiday, in all its posh, punk, ancestral, anarchic, noble and naughty glory. Royal and raunchy, colours and patterns collide, fantasies come true, punk fairies take flight with enchanted new looks!"

Come to bed

Let's be honest, few things are better than a good bed! And recently changed, fresh, clean bed linen are definitely in the list of small and simple things that make you everyday least for me!

Today was that day! I just got home and my bed is so wonderful!!! White, crisp and fragrant sheets!!!

Confession: I'm really, really "attached" to my bed.
The story has begun 10 years ago! My bed was my first "investment", bought with my first salary, paid in 10 instalments, I'll never forget that!

I remember going to the shop and saying that I wanted the biggest bed they had! The guy looked at me and it was clear that he was
1) thinking I was a 21 years old crazy girl;
2) wondering what the hell I wanted to do with the biggest bed in the shop!

So, 3 weeks later the bed arrived and the lady who usually helped me every week with household stuff called me saying: "Larissa, there are some people here trying to deliver a bed, they say it's yours, but it's  a mistake for sure. This bed doesn't fit your bedroom, it's too big!!!! What do I do?
Guess what was my answer? (That was easy right?!)
"Denise, let them in! They are right, it's my bed! My, my, myyyy bed!!! Ask them to bring it in, I don't need space between the bed and the walls!"

And so, 10 years later, and my bed is here with me in London! Yes, it came with me!!! Inspired by my beautiful bed, that will guarantee me sweet dreams tonight, I share with you some other beds from my bank of images! Believe me, beds have their own personality!!!

-By the amount of images you see how "passionate" (sounds better than obsessed;) I am about the subject!)
Sleep tight! See ya!!!
