A Perfect Voice

* So many talented ladies in one place. So much style. So much inspiration.

* Everything you wanted or didn't want to know about most famous designer houses in the world. A little bit of history and a little bit of scandal.

* If you are planning a trip to Rome soon (lucky girl) or you are dreaming of a trip to Rome (lucky dreamer) you should read this guide by Claire Oldman from Lola is Beauty.

I hope that you are having one great summer. That you are eating enough ice cream and water melon. That you are spending enough time in your bathing suit, even if it's on your balcony or back yard. And that you are remembering to forget, at least for a little while, about work (school, exams and such boring stuff).

Double Sided

You know how there is a time in every woman's life when she starts mercilessly attacking stuff with nail polish (!?) (You don't? I suppose it's just me then). Well, my nail polish collection did start growing exponentially this summer, but obviously the expansion of my jewelry collection was not exponential enough and I had to intervene. 

So, since I got this necklace its backside looked almost equally attractive as its front to me. This Saturday, the mix of extreme summer heat and the smell of nail polish obviously got my creative juices flowing. Instead of one, I, now, have two necklaces and one of them even mirrors the season's trends of neon and ombre and not particularly subtly, if I may say. Just because I'm trendy like that...

So, how many nail polish attacks did you have this season?

Some links and a butterfly

These are the five things without which I would not survive today: an electric fan, the TV remote, coffee, a book and closed blinds on all the windows

On a different note, this butterfly was a great model, very cooperative. Probably because it was the day after it finally rained. Although my tiny orange Nikon wasn't up to the task and out of 18 shots only a few can be used. 

Anyway, I wish you a happy July and great plans for this month. In the meantime, let me entertain you.

* It's easy to dream of Holland when it's hundred degrees outside here. At least there you can wear your silver pants and ride your bike where ever you like. (Milica was also thinking of Holland these days.)

* 50 books? Yes, please. I can already tick off about twenty from the list. And I recommend To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee as a starting point.

* And in the end something beautiful.
