Tuesday crush

I don’t have an iPhone (blackberry user), but this case just took my breath away! It reminds me of cameos, everything feminine¬†and the pleasure of being a woman! Do you like it? Found it, where else, on pinterest..

Monday inspiration

Sorry for the lack of post on Friday, but was jet lagged big time! My plane was delayed so it took me 20 hours to arrive!!

Montreal is still as beautiful and welcoming as i left it..

I hope you all had a great and inspiring weekend, here are some pictures of what is inspiring me this Monday

A beautiful headboard..

My mother had a very similar chest,leather and brass, where she had all the linen sheets and table clothes from her family in italy..I asked her for it earlier this year, but sadly it was so rotten, beyond repair!

Perfect for little girls tea party, soo sweet no?

And of course, we are women, so some bling is in order…

Have a lovely week, xo…

Compromise your feminine side?

Yes we all learned that life is all about compromise…

Some interiors are entirely too feminine to imagine a guy living in them, i definitely can’t see my husband having a bath in this bathroom above, he would look, well, ridiculous or, as if he was using a girl’s bathroom, and not mmm¬†our bathroom!

Compromise, compromise..

When living with someone, you both sacrifice in decorating, he loves white flowers, she loves pink, he is into modern furniture, she prefers antics, he like black/white photography, she likes landscape! And the list goes on..

How to find common ground? The key, i think, is to remember that a home has to reflect both personalities, that’s how a mixture of periods, colors and art happen! The whole aesthetic becomes one that both parties are comfortable with.

Did you have this problem when you moved in together? Do you decorate your place in your own taste or compromise?

Hair color…

Very rare are the women who haven’t changed their hair color, gotten highlights,lowlights or any kind of light!

The ratio of women changing their hair color is much higher than men. They tend to change their look mainly by having a beard, a moustache , long or short hair..

Well we can’t grow a beard so we change the color of our hair! I began at an early age wanting to be blonder, (my mom is blonde with green eyes while i came out a brunette with brown eyes, my father’s legacy), so i wanted to look more like my mom, more european (go figure, as if they don’t have brunettes in europe!).

My natural hair color if i remember correctly LOL!

Anyway, so throughout the years i went from blonde, to brown with highlights, to reddish, to blonde again, even tried having black hair!

All the colors i tried over the years!

Was i looking for something? Maybe i did. Maybe my frustration at not being able to change my life was the trigger for my physical change, aka hair color change!

I can’t tell you in what condition my hair ended up! Dry, brittle, falling (sometimes i used to change my color twice a month, yeah crazy!).

But with age (is that the reason i wonder?), i just accepted the fact that i was fine the way i was born, so after all these years i finally went back to being a brunette, my natural hair color, or a slightly similar one..

ps: the only color i haven’t tried!

too scared maybe..

Do you color your hair?And why? Are you a yo-yo like me or you settled on one color for a long period of time?
