only the best for serious cooks
17 May 2013
I first saw Malle W. Trousseau in Australia when reading some local magazine. The whole idea is perfectly executed to the last detail. Styling and packaging is superb.
I'm not a huge cook, I would love to be better and I do try and it's not bad when I have time but if I ever win the lottery I wouldn't mind to employ someone to do heathy and yummy cooking for me.
This complete trunk/set contains 43 kitchen essentials. Cutting, cooking and serving. Everything is the best quality ( quite pricey) but I imagine it would be a wonderful gift for a stylish couple or bachelor and if I ever get married again please buy me one of those:)
There is one thing I'm really interested : how much are you influenced by packaging? do you sometimes buy products just because they look great and you like how they boxed or wrapped? I'm afraid I'm guilty.....
A while back I was given these women's wellies . They do really optimistic boots, stripy, with flowery patters or elegant ones satin bows at the back. Sweet. Who would think I would be using my ones in May but the weather is so unpredictable and still rainy and cold that I put them on again today while doing a bit of gardening on a late Friday afternoon. I have been sitting by the desk so much this week I needed to clear my head. I'm planning a long walk tomorrow so I might be using them again.
PS: I also fancy the yellow ones with blue stripes or their nautical jacket. All from Joules. One has never enough of rain proof clothes in UK....
Danielle Moss Chicago home tour
16 May 2013
I'm always very delighted to see our products in real homes. This time in Danielle Moss's home in Chicago. Her home is light, fresh and very pretty. Our posters must be very happy living there.....(if they could).
Spot them in photo ( 3+last one) - Happiness is Made for you, Non Je Ne Regrette Rien.
trip to Iceland
12 May 2013
Last week my parents, my sister and I went to Iceland. It was very unusual and incredibly fun experience. We purposely wanted to go without our partners just sort of "old family" like when we were kids and it felt like it. There was so much laughter, just a brilliant time.
I have never been to Iceland before, its an amazing place. We stayed for 3 days in Reykjavik ( in this hotel, great location in an old port) and made trips into countryside. Unfortunately there wasn't time to see all places I planned, but still we managed to see loads and come back full of memories.
It was cold and rainy for a bit, felt like early March, but we had couple of sunny, clear days so we were taking photos like crazy. Some places felt like landing on a moon, actually quite a lot of them, almost surreal, black lava fields everywhere you looked, steam coming out the mountains, hot lakes to bath in....hardly any trees....The grass wasn't green yet in most areas so it evoked the feeling of emptiness and contrast even more, I imagine that in summer when everything turns green it must be wonderful.
For me this video perfectly captures the island http://vimeo.com/64835157.
Truly unique country, do visit if you can.......
