Every day makes me smile

Easter is about love. Family is about love. Doggy paws are about love (and in fact, such a heart melting kind of love that whenever I hold or smell Oscars fluffy paws, I close my eyes and feel the endorphins and oxytocin running through my blood straight into my heart and bang - turn into fireworks). These are the things that make me smile, today and every day, and this editorial is the most perfect way to condense thousands of words and emotions into a few precious and beautiful images.

The sweetest Easter gift

Moschino Violetta rabbit bunny iphone cover

Thinking of treating yourself to something sweet and special this Easter? Then adopt little Violetta, the famous Moschino bunny that will stylishly protect your iPhone... and simply because she is so adorable! 

I am a huge fan of bunnies myself. I carry two fluffy toy ones in my bag, they are presents from the past and my good luck charms. And although Moschino duck or bears look lovely,  it is the little Violetta whom my heart truly belongs to... You can't help smiling and going "awwww" every time you see this sweet face.

Wouldn't you agree? Just look into her eyes... And melt away.

Inspired by Pantone: yellow freesia

French Revue de Modes No. 22 Spring/Summer 2013

"Now we are having beautiful warm windless weather that is very beneficial... The sun, a light that for lack of a better word I can only call yellow, bright sulfur yellow, pale lemon gold. How beautiful yellow is!"

Vincent Van Gogh

Continuing my Pantone series with Freesia, a vibrant, happy shade of yellow that may not always be the easiest one to wear, but is surely very beautiful to look at. I picked it from the Spring 2014 Colour report this month because this bright and gleaming hue that was once associated with gold always reminds me of daffodils and the daffodils make me think of Easter.

Paul Smith | Vera Wang | Roksanda Ilincic | Ralph Lauren | Blumarine | Derek Lam | Emilia Wickstead | L'Wren Scott

As usual I have created a little list of pretty thing for you and I to adore. The ones I particularly love and suggest are the perfume (it smells like sunshine, warm, soft, light, more fruity than floral), the burst necklace, gorgeous yellow dress, Moschino scarf and Repetto flats (the two are on sale right now), the bag and Max Mara midi skirt. Frankly, I'd happily take everything, but am doing my best to appear calm and reserved.

Have a beautiful day and wonderful weekend! We are off for a walk as soon as I publish the post to soak up some of that gorgeous sunshine and let the dogster run round like there's no tomorrow. And then I will be baking all kinds of Easter treats, making some chocolate for moi and spending a little time on-line (because I am addicted, I guess...)
