Spring Wish List

Aside from needing to replace my dead plants, rearrange my office and put my economy in order (Gosh, I’ve been saying that for years!), I could do with a couple of new things in my wardrobe, too. 😉 1-17-22872-S16-navy_collection1

Navy Trench Coat from Filipa K, the perfect choice for a prudish office girl like me. 😉 Continue reading

Delicate jewelry

I fell for the frail jewelry from HapaGirls on Etsy. I don´t own anything from them, yet, but I think their naive motifs are so beautiful that it´s just a matter of time. 😉 Especially now, that spring is slowly taking over, I find myself more prone to wear jewelry and I also feel more like going out. Hope you also find some seasonal inspiration here. 😉 Continue reading

Etsy goodies

Today was a truly nice day. I woke up late and had all the time in the world to cuddle with my babies in bed, reading blogs, checking instagram pictures and drinking coffee. Later on, I and Sam headed for a flea market with a friend of ours, mostly as an excuse to get out of the house (since the weather is horrendous this time of the year), but also to see if we find something cool. We did find a poster, a couple of fancy jars for my annual lemon curd gifting and a glass bunny that fits right in our living room exhibition. I had to have a chocolate cake bite and Sam got a sausage since he´d rather be in the woods than around thousands of noisy people, but he got some ear rubs, so it was all good. At home we had lunch- roast beef left overs from yesterday, eggplant salad that my mother made a week ago, baked sweet potatoes and focaccia. It was all yummy and familiar and somehow it took us back to Romania for a moment or two.

Now I´m in bed again, the cat purring beside me, and I´m gathering energy for tonight´s Christmas party with the Interpreters´ Union. I don´t always do well with strangers and I´ve only met a couple of them, so I´m a bit nervous. It takes a certain kind of person to join a union and I usually find them a bit loud, to put it mildly. Anyhow, I hope it´ll be less work talk and more wine, besides I must be a bit like them, too, since I´m in!

In the meantime, I´m dreaming of nice stuff on Etsy. It seems I won´t be able to shop for a while, so I might as well do some virtual gazing. 😉

Rings I Fancy

 

Whenever I have a little bit of time on my hands, I enter the dream land of Etsy and let myself get carried away. I handpicked these rings for you and I love each and every one of them! The thing is I´m not so good at wearing jewelry, but I like to stock it and know it´s mine. Talk about Gollum syndrome! My precious! Grrr!

Nuts for jewelry

Lately I´ve been a sucker for jewelry! I ordered some gold plated earrings in a Tallin Gallery, I just had to have them! Saw them in december and had to think the purchase over for a day and when I finally decided to buy them, they were gone! These are just an illustration, the real ones are waiting for me to pick them up at the post office!;-)

Nordic Jewelry

I just had to share my favorite jewelry with you! I prefer simple jewels, so the Scandinavian lines appeal to me. I dream of a Ole Lynggaard ring and a matching bracelet, but until that day, these are my most worn pieces. These days I never part with the big ring, I bought it from the very artsy A-gallery in Tallinn and I simply adore it! The green bracelet is from Swedish Sophie by Sophie and it´s so stylish. Besides, I love enamel! The other ring with a purple stone is from Danish Susanne Friis Bjørner and the rough necklace is from Høyer. See anything you like?;-)

Jewelry

I´m not a jewelry person. I have a couple of rings and a few bracelets, a string of pearls and a couple of modern necklaces which I almost never wear. From time to time, though, I feel that jewelry is the one statement piece that can lift a whole outfit.

Marion Vidal! I loved her colorful, eclectic jewels from the first time I saw them in a boutique in Bucharest! I can´t refrain myself from saying that the sales persons in that wanna be high end store were awful- regarding me and my man with a mixture of disdain and awe as in “how dare you come into our shop, you mortals?!” Still, I had to have the necklace- perfect round ceramic pearls, one of the “pièces de resistance” of my wardrobe.

Introducing you to her magic world of eye candy!
