"Success is not the key to happiness.  Happiness is the key to success.  If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." - Albert Schweitzer

L'homme Du Moment


In 2009, the thirty one year old artist & architect, Nicholas Elias (pictured above) designed & created an installation, made entirely of a series of coloured perspex panels.  He named it 'The Geometry of Innocence'.  He entered the design into the 2009 Sculpture By The Sea competition, held annually in Sydney, Australia, Elias' native home, where it was so successful, it was selected out of five hundred proposals as one of three pieces to be showcased on Tamarama Beach.




I not only admire his design but also his talent.  Of course, you can't ignore his obvious good looks too.  I'm sure he will have more to offer us in 2012...Hopefully in the UK, as well as his native home.  In the meantime, you can check out his other work on his website & his blog.

I think this is going to be SO MUCH BETTER than the Versace range! So much better!

I've been after a Michael Kors watch for some time now, but, I have struggled to decide exactly which one to get.  However, I am happy to report I have finally made my decision, as I am wholeheartedly in LOVE with this one!!!

As soon as Christmas is out of the way (as I shall be spending all my dollar on other people), I shall be purchasing it.

Definitely being added to my Wish List in the meantime.

Pig Post!


Mr Piggles getting ready for the season.

I'm not a huge fan of French Connection, however, I seem to have somewhat fallen a little in LOVE with these...Perhaps I'm just trying to replace the real loves of my life...

Quote Of The Day


"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own." - Robert A Heinlein

L'homme Du Moment


I believe I may have a crush on a younger man...Douglas Booth to be precise.  The London bred nineteen year old has previously modeled for Burberry, alongside the likes of Emma Watson & Lily Donaldson, portrayed Boy George in Worried About The Boy & is now set to star as Pip in the BBC's adaptation of Great Expectations, due for screening this December.

Douglas is also featured as a member of mrporter.com's Style Council.  Clearly this boy's got style as well as talent.  Throw in his obvious good looks & I'm melting...Douglous Booth, will you be my tenderoni?

Leonardo Da Vinci At The National Gallery


After five years of careful planning, nine pieces of Da Vinci's work has made its way from across the globe to London, to hang together for the first, & possibly the last, time.  Among them to be shown are 'Virgin of the Rocks', 'The Madonna Litta', 'The Last Supper' & 'The Lady with an Ermine'.

London's National Gallery will be showcasing the paintings up until the 5th of February & all online pre-sale tickets have already sold out!

I have only managed to see Da Vinci's Mona Lisa up close & personal, at the Louvre in Paris, so I for one am exceedingly excited about this collective & shall be ensuring my visit to go see these masterpieces, before the exhibition closes & the paintings are transported back to their original homes.

Quote Of The Day


"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door, that we do not see the one that has opened for us." - Helen Keller

Love Affair


I'm officially heartbroken!

I FINALLY found the biker boots of my dreams, whilst perusing Welcome To My Jungle, only to find out Zara have SOLD OUT!!!

Reasonably priced & studded enough to make me feel happy & now, my dreams have been crushed!

Such cruelty.

Why is it that, designers always seem to make knitwear for men so much better than they do for woman!?

Seriously now, this knit is parfait & an absolute must pour moi & guess what, it's from Reiss' menswear collection!

I checked out their woman's collection & it was uninspiring & exceptionally disappointing.

This is of course getting added to the Wish List.
