Here we are!
I want to share with you one of my latest purchases: Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses.

They are part of the so called "promise collection", and buying them I also did a good action: I am now part of the Millenium Project, which aims to help people throughout Africa.

All the items of this small collection have a desertic flavour, with lovely prints that are simply perfect for this summer.

So far, Tommy Hilfiger has collected 1.064.046€, but the amount increases every day.

And this is me wearing the sunglasses!

Here below you can find the link to Tommy website. It's always a pleasure to promote such a helpful shopping!
Of course you can buy on-line, and have your parcel in only a few days.
So.. Have a good shopping! :)

turquoise happiness

Hello everyone!
How was your Saturday? Mine was amazing, some shopping in the afternoon (but i behaved.. i haven't spent a lot!) and then evening with friends.
What I want to show you today is my shopping at H&M. You should know how much I love turquoise, so you can imagine my happiness when I saw how many turquoise accessories H&M made for this season!
I thought orange and coral red would have win, but also turquoise is above the most common colors. How happy am I :):)
So I could not avoid to buy some..
And here they are!

In my opinion this color is perfect for summer, is great on every kind of skin (tan or not), and both for blondies and brunettes!
I love this color because perfectly matches with my eyes in summer time, and adds some a bit of cheerfulness to every outfit.
So: thumbs up for turquoise! :)

Good morning ladies!
The weekend is started, and i want to start it at its best with a poem I love a lot, written by Wislawa Szymborska. It's called 'Possibilities', I am sure you are going to like it as well!
Here some pictures I chose inspired by the lovely words you can find on the bottom of the page. Enjoy your Saturday! And your reading too. <3

I prefer movies. I prefer cats.I  prefer the oaks along the Warta.I  prefer Dickens to Dostoyevsky. I prefer myself liking peopleto myself loving mankind. I prefer keeping a needle and thread on hand, just in case. I prefer the color green. I prefer not to maintainthat reason is to blame for everything. I prefer exceptions. I prefer to leave early. I prefer talking to doctors about something else. I prefer the old fine-lined illustrations. I prefer the absurdity of writing poems to the absurdity of not writing poems. I prefer, where love's concerned, nonspecific anniversaries that can be celebrated every day. I prefer moralists who promise me nothing. I prefer cunning kindness to the over-trustful kind. I prefer the earth in civvies. I prefer conquered to conquering countries. I prefer having some reservations. I prefer the hell of chaos to the hell of order. I prefer Grimms' fairy tales to the newspapers' front pages. I prefer leaves without flowers to flowers without leaves. I prefer dogs with uncropped tails. I prefer light eyes, since mine are dark. I prefer desk drawers. I prefer many things that I haven't mentioned here to many things I've also left unsaid. I prefer zeroes on the loose to those lined up behind a cipher. I prefer the time of insects to the time of stars. I prefer to knock on wood. I prefer not to ask how much longer and when. I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.

DIY - doily candle-holder

hi ladies!

today i want to show the candle-holder i made last week, it took me only a few minutes and it's pretty nice!

if you want something shabby-chic, or something romantic, this is the right DIY for you!

I only used an old doily (it's better to use a fake one, made in plastic for example.. it would be a pity to cut the ancient doily made with patience by your old granny one century ago!;)), an empty jamjar pot, and a coloured ribbon.

first step: cutting the doily accordingly to the measure of the pot. then, simply stick it (i used vinavil glue, but also spray glue would be fine).

let everything dry off, and then cut some ribbon to stick on the top of the pot.
and that's it!

very easy and very plushy, also if you use it as an ornament. but in my opinion, it gives its best when there's a candle inside! take a look:

Around my neck..

I woke up this morning with an overwhelming desire of buying a new necklace..
Desire that remained unfulfilled, but at least I found a lot of lovely necklaces on the internet, so I can share them with you! Together with my own favourites necklaces that you can find here:

 2 necklaces, same model, with blue and brown plastic gem stones, put together by a ribbon
Seashells (H&M), Butterfly (Accessorize),  Heart (Accessorize) and Etnic pendant (vintage)
Light blue pearls with some golden contrasts (I bought this last one during a trip to Egypt, is perfect to wear when you're tan!)

BUT don't forget to take a look to the necklaces I found on the Internet. And I have to admit that the 2 pictures at the end of the post are my 2 favourites.. You will understand the reason for it! ;)

bows and ballerinas..

Maybe it's the sun, maybe it's the summer that is slowly coming, but these days mean only one thing to me: ballerina shoes.

Actually, I personalized a pair of ballerinas with this lovely leopardskin bow. And this is the result:

What do you think? Do you like it? :) I think they're so sweet!

Here below you can find some other pairs from which you can take some inspiration for your creations..
