Pimp your table!

23 Jan

Nothing says “chic” quite like having a fab collection of books (mainly travel, fashion, food or photography) on your coffee table.

Not too bad seeing at it’s coming from one of the fashion and design world’s most celebrated designer.

Great news for wine lovers! Now you can enjoy a glass of delicious chardonnay without having to count calories OR drink something with less taste. Wines from Skinny Vine do have lower alcohol contents, though, but if you’re looking to save your liver just a little bit and getting up the next day without a nasty hangover, try a bottle from this brand. Let me know what you think!

“Swinging” beauties

5 Jan

An homage to some of the bombshells that dominated the swinging 60s; an era still so captivating to us born decades later.

JEAN SHRIMPTON – British icon

“I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it.”

JANE BIRKIN – English actress and singer

“I love Dickens because it makes me chuckle to myself so. He has taken me to another world and out of so many earthly miseries.”

CATHERINE DENEUVE– French actress and model

“But that`s what I like about film – it can be bizarre, classic, normal, romantic. Cinema is to me the most versatile thing.”

PEGGY LIPTON – American actress

I ran into Neil Patrick Harris recently. We were in something called The Purple People Eater.He was maybe 10, but he still remembered it as theworst experience of his life!”

MARILYN MONROE – American icon

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.”
