I'm struggling with my hair cause I want to wear it straight so badly but it's impossible. My hair is curly. And you know what? I think it's more than just a hair issue. Do you remember that Sex and the City episode where Carrie and Big reenact the Way We Were scene and Carrie realizes she is too complicated for Big just like curly hair? 

"Ladies, I'm having an epiphany. The world is made up of two types of women. The simple girls and the Katie girls. I'm a Katie girl."

I must say it's time for me to accept the fact that I'm a Katie girl as well and instead of dreaming about straight hair I have to start enjoying my waves. 

Tell me darling: deep inside your heart are you the straight "haired" girl or the curly "haired" girl?

Hope you having a lovely week my dear friends. I like to share this beautiful photography by the very talented Joanna Kustra over from Poland. She's 25 years old and living in Krakow & London. What do you think?

Sorry for the slow updates lately, I guess I'm just a little bit lazy(?). Many thanks for the comments I'm on my way returning the love.

I think without humor we all would go crazy. I'm grateful for everyone who's adding a little fun to life...

One of my harmless addiction is tea. My all time favourite is black tea with lots of lemon. But I'm such a big fan of green teas, white teas and oolong teas as well. There is so much history in a cup of tea...it's irresistible. Are you a tea person? Which teas are you into?

Book:
The Patisseries of Paris: Chocolatiers, Tea Salons, Ice Cream Parlors, and more
If you want to take your tea-sessions to an ultimate chic level, I'm sure you going to enjoy this book. It's my favourite lately...

When it's cold outside I love the cozy time at home. Browsing on Layla Grayce.com with a cup of hot chocolate is one of my favourite things to do on cold evenings lately. I have redecorated our entire home (in my head of course) with all the gorgeous things they have...I just love everything.

...so beautiful, dreamy, soft and ladylike...

At that point when I first checked out their stuff for babies, I was about to cry (I will share that as well in another post). Hope you have a wonderful weekend darlings!

Falling in love with shoes is lovely and safe. Much safer than fall in love with the opposite sex. Even when a new shoe is hurting my feet, I can be sure those scars will be cured one day. With a broken heart...well the story is a little different.

They are coming in many colors...and I'm madly in love with all of them.

Happy Friday Dears!

Do you believe in fairy tales...or dreams...or magic...or miracles? I have to admit that I do...I know it's childish, but to be a grown up is so boring sometimes :-)

The holidays are over and January-February are definitely last on my favourite month's list. However, I love the big sales what different shops are having this time of the year. It's a great time to get something quality for a good price. Some of my favourite picks:

Coats: HALSTON Brushed wool-blend cape, STELLA McCARTNEY Tufted wool coat, DONNA KARAN Belted wool-blend coat.
Photobucket
Dresses: CHLOE Strapless pleated silk-blend dress, By MALENE BIRGER Pleated bubble dress, JIL SANDER Techno scuba jersey dress.Photobucket
Dress: VIVIENNE WESTWOOD RED LABEL Satin corset dress

I'm dramatically in love with this Vivienne Westwood dress. I love these colors and I think it's simply magnificent!

What do you think?

I wish you a Wonderful New Year dear friend and I look so much forward to have more fun with you in this year as well. Thank you for being a part of my life...

I thought it would be funny to share my TweetCloud with you, which has been created from the words I mostly used on Twitter in 2009. It would be a lie if I would say that I'm not even a little bit proud of that, the word I used the most was: LOVE.
Ps: I'm travelling to Budapest tomorrow and I will spend the entire afternoon responding to your comments which you left under my 2 recent posts, as I had no time to do that during the holiday. Sorry and I will come to you soon!
