Unusual handbags - mother's day gift ideas

Make your mum feel special with a unique handmade bag from Munique. Uniqueness is different for everyone and there are lots of designer handbags out there and fashionistas or label lovers who simply must have them to be trendy.

Now there's a woman who exudes confidence in her.

Shape is probably one of the first feature in an unusual handbag that grabs me. The bag must draw the eye and when my friends, family and perfect strangers ask me "Where did you get that", then I know that I am doing something right. What better endorsement do you need than the fact that you are turning heads. I guess that is the dramatic personality in me.

Zmuszona presją otoczenia, tego raczej medycznego i rodzinnego, a nie modowego postanowiłam wyrobić okulary. I taki oto jest efekt, który całkiem pozytywnie mnie zaskoczył (lecz i tak soczewki pozostają nr 1, choćby ze względu na wygodę użytkowania). A ponad to moje ulubione ostatnio klasyczne, materiałowe szare spodnie, jedna z niewielu rzeczy, którą kupiłam ostatnio w sklepie (miła odmiana od jeansów). Biała góra też powróciła po sporej przerwie, by dodać trochę przejrzysttości temu wszystkiemu ;) No i jeszcze kurtka - ostatnio kożuchy mnie nie opuszczają.
A co do poszukiwanych to chyba od 2 lat planuję zakup parki doskonałejta Alice jest bliska ideału ;) w kolorze oliwkowym i mam nadzieję, że w końcu mi się to uda ! Do tego dużo kolorów nude plus styl militarny.

Winter weather

New York is having another blizzard today. Blarg. I'm about ready for winter to be over, aren't you? To make things a little cozier, I'm thinking of making cauliflower soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. Plus, the women's figure skating finals are on tonight! Hope you guys are staying warm and cozy. xo

City Hall wedding hair

Jess and Mike got married at New York's City Hall, and I love that she just wore her hair down. Beautiful and so relaxed.

Book covers

The baby was kicking, so I woke up super early this morning and spent a random hour looking through book covers online. So many hilarious and clever designs out there!

P.S. More + amazing + covers.


Ostatni tydzień spędziłyśmy odcięte od świata na kaszubskiej wsi na plenerze rysunkowym:> Enjoy!
