In The Mood For




{wearing heavy coats of mascara on upper and lower lashes to portray dolls' eyes}


The week began with a root canal- gone- wrong situation that caused me the most excruciating pain for three days that I sincerely don't want to remember as long as, well, I live!! Of course this implied another unexpected visit paid to the dentist and another bunch of money being spent both there and on medication [plus a third round to finish the treatment in about three weeks' time] precisely when I was making the sacrifice of not spending money on some beautiful Zara blazers that totally got me hooked and that would make me feel really satisfied! That little detail aside I've celebrated my  mom's 78th birthday, realized that I'm ready for a more refined, clean and simple design for my future home, but my attention is still drawn onto standout pieces with a vintage feel, I made regular appointments to have my eyebrows professionallly done and I'm still receiving ocasional gifts from my birthday in April! I'm in the mood for...



{adding more floral elements to my closet for the most desired  sunny weather}



{drinking lots of steaming hot lattes - unfortunately minus the ultra appetising caramels}




{finding a great clutch in tones of red and orange  - a very feminine combo}



{experimenting with my belated, though most wanted, birthday present - a white I-pad!}



{organizing my coffee-table books by colour coordination}


{trying this Massimo Dutti's coral glittery sweater/ dress - completely surrendered}

  1. Love these! I'm definitely in the mood for some warm lattes after reading this. And a girl could never have enough florals. :)

  42. Dear Aida:
    I am so sorry to heard about your root canal. I just got one myself and I know exactly how you feel. I was in pain for an entire week prior to going to the dentist and I was so disappointed to know that I need a root canal.
    I spend a lot of money and I still have to go back to my dentist because it hurts when I eat. The good thing is that I will be able to be in a soft diet for a while, so I can loss a few pound for summer :)
    As always I love reading your blog and your delicious recipes.
    Take care and I hope you feel better soon!
