In The Schedule

It's been busy few days and I didn't manage to put the week's links together before now... but there is still a few hours left to enjoy some colourful fashion, swish accessories, a beautiful renovated home and of course some delicious treats.

+  Modern Elegance ... I love this beautiful editorial featured in Vogue China Mar2013 issue by photographer Greg Kadel.  Beautiful pastels, stunning silhouettes, gorgeous model and fabulous hair!  More pics here at Fashion Gone Rogue.

+  You know a girl always loves a good accessory.  An elegant timepiece is an investment to be sure and this Cartier Miniature Panthere Diamond watch would probably cost as much as an investment home... one of the special pieces that was shown recently at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Watch Fair in Geneva.  Is it too over the top for daywear?  More watches via WMagazine.

+  A monument 'dedicated to the glory of French art', the Grand Palais is now seen as synonymous with the house of Chanel through the ongoing celebration of fashion under it's domed ceiling.  Another Magazine looks at a timeline starting at 2006 to current where Karl Lagerfeld cast his artistic eye over the Art Nouveau landmark and transformed it each season to meld seamlessly into the Chanel vision.

+  Take a look inside this beautifully transformed Brooklyn Brownstone belonging to Francesca Connolly (founder of Remodelista).  Initially the building was split into separate apartments and housed several tenants when Francesca moved in, the renovation included bringing it back to a single residence and maintaining the classic features throughout.   Of course, a smattering of designer pieces, luxe finishes and the most stunning vintage chandeliers don't go unnoticed either.. more images via Elle Decor here.

+  Chocolate!  There, got your attention...  No matter how you prefer your chocolate, elegant, rich flavour, a flourish of decoration, or a bold, hard edge, this Top 10 list of the best chocolate shops around the world from Architectural Digest has the interiors to match your taste-buds.   Above is a look at the classicist take from Les Marquis De Laduree in Paris - Bien sur!  

+  And of course, because it is the day for Lovers soon, remember the best way to a man's heart is via his stomach and these yummy looking Pavlova Hearts with Chantilly Cream from Return To Sunday Suppers would do just the trick.   In fact, it's the easiest way to impress me too... a delicious dessert!

Hope you're enjoying the lovely last hours of the weekend.

I like that glimpse of the terrace and the dining area of Fracesca Connolly's home. Chocolate...I'm currently undergoing a treatment and I'm not allowed to eat chocolate, which has been very hard to get used to, but had to. Have a wonderful week, Helen!

Have to check out that house, i like the kitchen already.
What a beautiful store, oh my all that chocolate...
Oh my Helen, you know the Winter, i'm tired of it.
I would love to do something outside at the cottage, to make my hands dirty. Plans to make a flower bedding ? hopefully this year we get this done. And we bought our selfs a Sahara tent!! for in the meadow at the cottage, kinda glamping idea. Almost similar as the one on Shelter Co..But we haven't got the change to try things out, cause the ground is to hard from the cold. Can't wait to see how it looks like!!

Have a nice week Helen!xx
