Blue Dior Baby!

It was in London last May when I saw the most gorgeous patent baby blue Lady Dior bag with a greyish color at Harrods, when I began to swoon over the color light blue.

At another floor, I saw the exact same color baby blue patent ballerinas by Chanel, and thought how awesome they would look together combined.

With a grey dress, and a oversized darker grey coat - to die for!
For now, here are some blissful images of the color that Dior does so well: blue.


This is the actual bag I saw/want:

Laduree, Harrods in London

'Ello!

I was for a short trip (4 days) in lovely London, which felt like way too short of a trip to see the city properly. But I managed to visit Ladurée, as I feel like as a pastry-admirer I should always stop at Ladurée. Already having checked off every Ladurée location in Paris, this is my first non-French Ladurée location. And which lovelier setting could I possibly imagine than having Ladurée next to Chanel, Rolex, and Fendi in Harrods department store?!

I was in desperate need for chocolate after hiking up 7 floors of shopping heaven, so I ordered a hot chocolate, which is more like a molten bar of heavenly chocolate. If you remember, I made the recipe for Ladurée's hot chocolate a while ago, see here.

Ladurée, Harrods


Dorie Greenspan writes in her book Paris Sweets: "Whenever friends ask for a list of things they should do in Paris, I always tell them they must go to Ladurée for hot chocolate – it is one of the delights of being in the city. Chocolat chaud made in the Ladurée style is unabashedly rich, luxuriously thick, textbook smooth, and the kind of delicious that forces you to stop all reasonable conversation so you can sip and murmur, “Mmmmm.”"

Next to the chocolate chaud, I ordered a Ladurée favorite of mine - the St. Honoré Rose Framboise. I previously ordered a Saint Honoré Rose Framboise when I went on vacation in Paris during a Summer. Rose-flavours, whipped cream, and a rapsberry filling skyrockets this dessert into my all-time favorite pastries.

All in all, another wonderful visit to Ladurée.

French-Inspired Classic Interiors

There's nothing I love more when interiors look and feel like a dream.
Light pastel colors, gold accents, and a clear feminine look to them.

These interiors are absolutely dreamy!


This look actually inspired me to paint my bedroom wall in a light salmon color:

French Madame in Budapest, Hungary

It almost slipped off the radar to mention that I visited Budapest in Hungary last October!

I've been wanting to visit this city for a while and I kept on hearing such great
things about it from everyone.

I was there for a few days, but long enough to confirm that Budapest is indeed a gorgeous city
worth visiting!

Here are my photos:

The incredible architecture from the Parliament's building.
It is such an eye-cather that can be seen from many points in the city.

Have you ever been?


Il Bacio Shopping, Budapest

If you ever want to take several credit cards with you and indulge in Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta,
Jimmy Choo, Moschino, Yves Saint Laurent, and many others, pay a visit to Il Bacio.
You can leave your husband waiting at the bar.

Ice Cream Rose, Budapest

And after seeing this incredible ice cream rose all over the web, I knew I had to try it!
So delicous and pretty from Gelato Rosa.
