All I want for Christmas is an artist

Ok, we would all love to see a Celine bag with a Sydney Evan's love ring and a pair of studded Louboutins under the Christmas tree.
But wait a second. Press rewind and think for a moment.
Wouldn't it be nice to give - or get - something unique, that someone actually dreamt about and then put into shape?
I mean, as much as I love Tim Burton's version of Willy Wonka, I find the first one more delicate, sweet and romantic, don't you?
And the idea of an artist sitting on a chair doing what she - or he - does best feels as delicate, and  somehow very appropriate and thoughtful in these difficult times.
I chose three artists between millions, simply because I know them, envy their hands of gold and know they deserve much more than what they might already have.
(And, if you ask me, all of these creations would fit a Celine bag perfectly. Just saying.)

Think different, choose uniqueness.

Wine, anyone?

Are you searching for something cheap to spice up your walls, or maybe just for a good excuse to buy another bottle of wine?
I might have the answer!
I happen to like my glass of red, or at least I did before I got pregnant. Now I can only dream of it, so I thought I could at least find a use for all those empty boxes!

don't mind me, I am just a beauty junkie

Here in Bruxelles you can ask for them in almost every supermarket, for free.
Give it a go, wine lovers!

Autumn so far

Autumn is lovely, everybody knows it. The house smells of freshly baked cakes, candles and clementines, the trees dress to impress and you can finally dig out your favourite hat.


 You can also dress up like a princess, 'cos there are too many witches around, already.
And then there's the make up - Oh, God bless autumnal make up!
Who said you have to love burgundy shades? I don't. In fact, I go the opposite way. Delicate petals, that's what I like, and I dived into it!
