I have been looking through my old drafts and found this post of Tamara Mellon’s fabulous closet…. She gave Vogue an exclusive tour of her personal closet in 2013…. I know that its a bit old and a lot of you might have seen it already but I love love love it and just had to share …… I love how super organized it all is and that everything has its place….. There are rows and rows of choos, and lots of vintage fur. And I just can’t get over her 31 black jumpsuits!!! This is by far my favorite closet ;)
Have been missing this space for a while!…. it sort have been my virtual home…. and I’ve been really “home sick” lately so I finally decided to come back and give it one more try!!!!… There were many reasons for me leaving this space or for taking this much time as a break from it!…. But I honestly don’t want to bore you with my reasons!!! The important thing (at least for this blog) is that I’m back…. it feels so good to be back ;)
The new fall/winter Valentino ad campaign took my breath away! The ad mixes beautiful images and classic still-life elements inspired by the golden age of Flemish portraiture and artists such as Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt. Brilliant campaign… it didn’t take attention away from the gorgeous collection but somehow added another layer of beauty to it!
There were so many beautiful gowns in this year’s Punk Theme Met Ball…. And I was tempted to put at least 10 of those pictures them, but then I thought that I should only put what I would see my self in!

Going back to nature is back in fashion right now!!!… whether its in food, interior design, or high end fashion!!!… In this Ukraine based project, Sergey Makhno Workshop used green and natural materials to create a loft-like space. I’m in love with the natural light thats floods the apartment, and I recognize some of that lovely modern furniture I even have some of them on my wish list!… Though I must say that I wish they had a different dinning table!!!

I found this amusing so thought that I’d share it just for fun… I wish that I knew about number 8 when I was a kid!!! lol
1. Pot Cleaner
The bottom of household pots sometimes become blackened. If you pour Coca Cola into your pots and let it sit. Wash the pot as normal with fixation on the blackened areas and the Coke will likely remove the stains!
2. Rust Buster
Soak rusted metals in Coca Cola overnight and then scrub in the morning. The rust will weaken and come off more easily.
3. Toilet Cleaner
Add a can of Coke into the mix to help hasten the cleaning process.
4. Window Cleaner
Instead of using chemical household cleaners, try wiping down windows with Coke to remove dirt and grease.
5. Clothing Stain Remover
Pour Coke right on top of a stain and let it soak. Of course the stain will slightly discolor due to the color of the soda, but after you throw your clothes into your washing machine, the shirt will come out clean.
6. Pain Reducer
Dab affected area with the beverage to relieve bee stings and mosquito bites. It even works for jellyfish stings!
7. Stomach Soother
Coca Cola helps balance the pH levels in your stomach and will temporarily relieve heartburn and indigestion
8. Remove Gum From Hair
Soak your gum-tangled hair with Coke and let it sit for a few minutes. With some patience, begin to slowly pull it out.
9. Kill Bugs
If you want to get rid of an ant hill or rid roaches, spray the bugs with Coke. Even though it attracts them, it will also kill them once they’re inundated.
10. Loosen Bolts
Because Coca Cola is so helpful in dissolving rust, it can help to loosen bolts that have rusted and once were close to impossible to remove.
My hubby and I started watching Mr. Selfridge and although it’s not as good as Downton Abbey it is still fun to watch and I highly recommend it!!!
The series is about Harry Selfridge, the American entrepreneur who had created London’s famous department store. He is known to have revolutionized shopping by simply making it fun!!! Sure, people always shopped, but it was more of a chore before Selfridge redefined the experience in 1909….
Assistants working at Selfridges were encouraged to help customers rather than patronize them….He was actually the one who invented the phrase ‘the customer is always right’ !!!
Selfridges was the1st place that had restaurants and hairdressing salon in-store and the 1st place that had lighting in shop windows that were lit at night.
Before Selfridge, cosmetics and toiletries had been hidden discreetly away at the back of the shop, considered too racy and taboo to be on display. He decided to move them to the front entrance of Selfridge’s so that people entering were assailed by a cloud of sweet scents…..He was revolutionary and full of great ideas.
I won’t say any more although I am really tempted …. but I wouldn’t want to spoil it for my brother A ;)
