My friend O. is addicted to bags… no seriously she must have at least one for every single week of the year. But the funny thing is that I only can think of three of her bags… so maybe she only uses the other ones when she doesn’t hang around me.  Even though I don’t get it, I’d like to make her happy and get her one of those. Or maybe is it wrong to indulge her addiction? I’ve found those on Hanna Zakari, a nice shop for independent designer.

Lego rings

Not that long ago I received one of those for my birthday.  It’s the perfect gift for a geeky girl like me, it’s fun and playful and you can customize it. I think it would make an adorable engagement ring as well, especially if you don’t plan to spend a big amount of money (that you can save for your honeymoon for example, or nice gift for you grandma) on it. Rings are made by: Edition Mathea.

Christian Louboutin

I’m usually not big on shoes, I always buy nice sneakers but I’m not a girl obsessed with shoes. Even at the time I was watching Sex and the City, I just couldn’t get into the whole shoe thing. I like easy, comfortable shoes. I can’t wear high heels… well I can but I won’t, because I just don’t like the pain at the end of the day (or in some case within the next hour). But a while ago I’ve discovered those shoes: they’re expensive, I have no idea if they’re comfortable, but I feel like I could just by them. So I don’t know, if this is just me being brainwashed thinking I just need a pair of pretty shoes or if I’m just changing. Christian Louboutin’s shoes are worn on some of the world’s most glamorous feet, I’m not sure my feet could bare the comparison.

I Heart Guts, Love Your Inside June 28, 2009

I Heart GutsMy daughter does not care for toys and care even less for plush toys, she’s much happier playing with the remote control, my wallet or a spoon. So I don’t have any excuse to buy her a plush toy from I Heart Guts and then keep it for myself… and it is a pity. I particularly love the Kidney Plush: When Urine Love. I just can picture my husband and myself checking before leaving the apartment: “do we have the kidney?” “where did you put the kidney?” “did you put the kidney in the diaper bag?”

I’m still looking around for inspirations for my friend’s wedding. As she doesn’t know yet what she wants, I’m collecting pictures of objects, colour palette… I hope it will help her. Now that I’ve found this pair of earrings I just want to buy them for myself. But I won’t… it’s wrong!
