SeaShells by the Sea Shore

Who Do not you enjoy long walks along the beach at sunrise, sunset, or any time of the day, really? 

Whether the tide is coming in or going out, a leisurely walk along the beach is relaxing and a great way to enjoy what I call "the jewels of the gulf", the seashells.

Right there at our feet are some of the most beautiful and interesting sea animals and shells that the gulf has washed up on the beach for our enjoyment. I love to collect seashells by the sea shore and display them at home. The summer is here, Enjoy!

Wonderful Miniature landscapes in Saigon, Vietnam

I’ve always been obsessed with miniatures and gardens. So my friday post is about some incredible miniature landscapes. They were displayed at the Spring Flower festival at Tao Dan park in Saigon. 

Don't you think they are the perfect addition to any yard or home where space are limited? Children love to see them too.

I can't wait now to create my own and unique little 'Saigon garden': Oh, Yesss!

In today’s world of everyone trying to super-size everything, I do believe these miniature landscapes are a welcome surprise that always bring a smile to our face. It’s the perfect way to remember how the beauty of nature and small things make a huge difference in the world.

Wooden USB Stick by OOOMS

The Creative Design of the Week is the Wooden USB Sticks by OOOMS.

I really love these original USB sticks inspired by nature made by the Dutch Design Studio OOOMS. Made out of hand selected wood, no single stick is identical to another. They certainly create an amazing tension between the cold machine and the natural appearance of the memory stick...You can buy this product in their website here.

When you explore their website, you will also run into a solar birdhouse, a rebellious cabinet and even a roadkill carpet...They mainly design products and gifts for in and around home. Great products!

Nature Inspired Fashion: 2012 Floral Print Trousers Spring Trend

Jessica Alba
 2012 Spring Fashion Weeks all plunged into a garden of Eden and delivered us explosions of floral prints. Dolce & Gabbana’s show still remains my fave with sexy, floral Sophia Loren’s look-a-likes invading the runway.

Salvatore Ferragamo’s floral print silky jumpsuit can turn any fashion ignorant into a real fashionista. And the list goes on with Cavalli, Thakoon, Mary Katranzou, Osman, Isabel Marant, J. Krew or Alaexander Wang. They all go back to sensual femininity.

And everyone wants a piece of all this old school glamour and sex appeal that is the new 2012 spring fashion trend. Celebrities and non-VIP’s such as myself relish on the floral print trousers. In converses or heeled Louboutins, with jumpers or blazers they sure make us look so effortlessly cool. A bit like Olivia Palermo & Jessica Alba perhaps, but in high street fashion.

Yep Dorothy Perkins, ZARA, H&M, Topshop can come quite in handy to us common people… We can’t all relish on Dolce & Gabbanas now, can we? Well at least not just yet.

The streets seemed to have exploded with floral print trousers. They are everywhere. In a million colors & styles. Such a spring cliche, I know… but can’t help myself to love’em!
