The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years. The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

-Audrey Hepburn.

Random post: My favorite pic.

I came across this FABULOUS website called "Cakespy", i had no idea what i was missing till i found this site. Adoraaaable to the core of the word, the animations, the recipe and most of all the posts are completely and utterly the most interesting i have seen in a cooking or food blog.

Then i found my callling and my ultimate LOVE, i found a picture by Cakespy i fell head over RELIGIEUSE for.
I seriously cant stop looking at this picture, its beautiful. Whats unfortunate is that i was very excited for a long time (as you may have noticed on the side of my blog, i had i cant wait for laduree) and when i visited the boutique i found out that they only had madeleines ,macarons, candles and chocolates i think!
Where is the Religieuse, L'ispahan or even the tarts and irresistable desserts we know and love of at Laduree?
Nevertheless, Ladureee , aaaah i LOVED IT!!! The boutique was beautiful, very pretty and exactly how i expected it to be, PERFECT.
I really hope they serve these at the Dubai branch eventually!
Anyways back to my point, you ladies have to check out this pic of one of my favorite things about Laduree, aside from their oh so perfectly made macarons (currently obsessing over the Orange Blossom macaron, if you havent tried it, you must, beautiful!) the Religieuse. Its a beautiful pastry made with a cream like custard filling, is made with different flavors, such as rose, lavender and more.


Check out www.cakespy.com, it is seriously FABULOUS!!!!

Christy Turlington by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia.



My friend and i only picked up this magazine because of the
no words can describe it cover. We dont read or understand Italian, but we didnt care. As i looked through the magazine, not only was it one of the best Vogue issues i have come across yet, and not only was the shoot of Christy Turlington my latest inspiration, and favorite fashion shoot ever it was needless to say the most perfectly executed shoot of the two beautiful worlds we live in and the world we continously are inspired by everyday, Vintage, classic and modern today.

She loooked spectacular in every dress, and aaah the shoes, the LV's, the Valentino's draping everywhere, the hairstyles i wish to have on everyday, the perfection of perfectly drawn makeup and the ultimate weapon the portrait image of the most elegant luxurious woman.

Check out the pics!














Check out this video on the making of the shoot, LOVE IT!
