Celine Pouch

Trio, plain or bicolour pouch...if you're talking Celine, you  are talking to me! My love for all Celine accessories is obviously pretty obvious and its pouches are just too cute to pass up. The splash of femininity, its small proportion and ultra-minimal look, the fact that it is perfect for busy days and the expression of undeniable style that this little bag conveys is something that every city girl craves. The simple, basic, minimalist and modern style can easily be thrown over the shoulder for a cute crossbody look. Yes, I admit that its price is not reasonable at all for most of our budgets and it probably won't justify something so basic, but there's no denying there's a certain chic brilliance added to it, right?

In The Mood For

{spending the weekend in the countryside - unfortunately, postponed!}

It's a bit frustrating when plans for a nice weekend spent outdoors go down the drain due to  multiple downpours that Spring has decided to bring along this year!I've decided that the only things I will pull back from my wardrobe are winter coats, because the tempuratures are ridiculously low again, but besides that I will live in springy clothes all the way - soft colours and light fabrics, no matter what!That being sad I guess I will check FNAC's book discount of 20% today and on Saturday to add some more treasures to my coffee table books collection, go for a brunch out with dear friends and the rest of my weekend will be all about good movies, great food, nice readings and searching for curtains for my new home! Have a great weekend! I'm in the mood for...

{loving the fresh, clean and aesthetically pleasing feel of this house}

Spring rainy mornings that remind Autumn call for nothing more than a great cup of hot milk/ latte/ tea and some tasty muffins to comfort both body and soul. They have a deliciou taste and a very soft dough that mixed with the dried fruits crispness make the combination just perfect.
