I think wearing these heels could be more dangerous than having a gun. First: it's insanely sexy. Second: just imagine pointing those heels onto your lover's chest...I'm sure you would get what you want /whatever it may be/.

Roccobarocco handbag...the perfect match. What do you think? Hope your Monday is exciting darlings.

Side notes: Still 17 Celsius here in Budapest /can you believe that?/ and I'm totally in love with the new Katie Melua album /thanks Orsi/.

I've seen the movie yesterday but I guess many people are planning to see it over the weekend so I don't like to ruin the surprise. Here is a couple of picture from the movie...I will leave in a comment what's my opinion and experience, so you can choose if you like to read it or not...

My latest favorite is Kimberly Jones Designs. Her clutches and purses are so pretty and cheerful and I just adore her bridal line.

Hope you're having a great week my dear friend. Million thanks for the beautiful birthday messages, you made my day very special and I'm so grateful for that. Let me tell you, I have great tolerance for rainy days, but this May's weather is so sassy here in Budapest I just really wanna curl up under my blanket and sleep until the summer is here /instead of blogging about fabulous swimsuits and dreamy summer holiday destinations./ How is the weather in your place?
Photobucket

Well I have my birthday today and I'm officially 33 years old. I spent this day quietly and gifted myself with this editorial. I choosed these images for my birthday post cause it's capturing beautifully the essence of me...
Photobucket
/And that's not because I have the same fabulous body type like Alessandra Ambrosio cause I so don't have that/. I know it's time for me to grow up now...and love pink a little less...but you know what?
Photobucket
Right at the moment it feels so good to be me and I just love the way I am. And I think that's the best birthday present you can surprise yourself with! 

Hope you're having a lovely weekend my dear friend. I'm off to a good movie now...see you next week.

I was invited to the Marta Makany fashion show today here in Budapest. I was very excited to go mainly for two reasons: I adore her bridal collection and to be honest I've never been on a "real" fashion show before. The experience I've just had was beyond wonderful...
Photobucket
There were lots of dreamy ruffles, colors and flowers and I can't wait to go to her showroom cause I feel that I just need to take a closer look and touch those beautiful creations.
Photobucket
Hopefully I will get some pictures about the show later so I can share them with you. Hope your week is fun my dears.

MARTA MAKANY LINK LOVE:

Side note: This post supposed to be up yesterday evening but I was sleeping like a baby after the show /and was dreaming about gorgeous ruffles and flowers/ so I just posted it today /Thursday/ morning with the date of yesterday. Stay tuned cause later today I will post about my first giveaway.

Chateau Mcely is the former rural manor of the Thurn-Taxis aristocracy. The five stars "Green Castle" is located in the midst of the magical St. George Forest, high on a hill with breath-taking vistas, just an hour’s drive from the center of Prague /Czech Republic/. They have 23 individual rooms and suites, each with its own style and name...
Photobucket
My favorite one is the "Legend Luxury Suite". I would move in here in a second and would be absolutely unremovable for a week at least...
Photobucket
I would start my days in this dreamy bathroom with a hot shower. Then I would unhurriedly sip my organic tea on its balcony while I'm only wearing this ridiculously gorgeous Carine Gilson Kimono with a hint of Chanel No.5. - of course.
Photobucket
I would feel just like Marie Antoinette: having dinner here in this Issa silk-jersey gown and eating peas one by one with a vintage silver fork...
Photobucket
Oh it's tea time again? Well, this time I would go for this Lotta Stensson maxi dress /or maybe for this Stella McCartney Oversized shirt dress/ while I'm playing poker with my female admirers. What do you think darlings?

Believe it or not today was the first time I've watched the official trailer of Sex and the City 2. I must say I'm more excited than ever. Besides all the glamorous outfits and fabulous shoes, we certainly can expect some delicate twists in the story as well. And you know what? This movie just can not disappoint me. Cause it's really not about the story, it's about those terrific characters: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. If you fall in love with them once you'll just love them forever. Only 12 days left...

SARAH JESSICA PARKER & SEX AND THE CITY RELATED /MUCHO/ LINK LOVE:

Hope you're having a lovely weekend, my dears. Thanks for the love and see you on Monday!

Pink is the color of universal love. Did you know that if you wearing pink you present yourself as a peaceful, calm person who is not threatening?
Photobucket

Blue gives a feeling of distance. The vibration if blue can be used to open energy flow where it is blocked. All shades of blue will help to make easy communication, whether it is with yourself or others.
Photobucket

If you have to choose which color do you heart, pink or blue?

I just love Danny Roberts. I adore the way he's using the colors. I purchased several prints from his Etsy Shop and I can't have enough of staring at them. I also love Arturo Elena, Liselotte Watkins and Carol Gillot. Do you have a favorite illustrator?

Well, when you are not checking your favorite online stores often enough, you're totally missing out on cute items like this. Isn't it annoying? I'm not especially a big fan of Harajuku Lovers but these wedges are definitely calling my name. 
Hope you're having a great week my dears. Yesterday I arrived in Budapest and I'm so happy to catching up with you.
