Cartier Winter Tale

Every year, a beautiful story by Cartier…

A touch of magic can be found inside each red box. This holiday, experience an enchanting winter with playful panther cubs in the clouds above Paris.

Happy Easter !

I have been busy trying to escape for the holidays, with no success so far. To cut the long story short, first  Oman, then UAE, then Cyprus, then Austria, then Thailand… one by one the destinations would be erased from our schedule as the traveling plans wouldn’t work out very well. Anyways I am going tomorrow (or so I hope) and my next post is going to be from there. (No, I won’t tell you the place until I reach it safely 🙂 In the meantime I wish you Happy Easter.

A Christmas Tale by Cartier

Cartier’s Winter Tales have sort of become the house’s tradition so we couldn’t resist posting this year’s magical ad. Directed by Bibo Bergero, the video is taking us to a magical walk through Paris of the 1920’s with baby panther once again the protagonist. Just watch the video and who knows? Maybe Cartier’s baby panther and elves could pay you a visit this Christmas 🙂

The adventure begins

Oh boy! Oh boy! Finally, I am test driving my new iMac and does this hi-tech genius make wonders! So easy to use!

Well, I just got back after spending one month in the US (part of the shopping frenzy I got into is my new iMac too) and have so much to share with you. I’m sure I left you in good hands and we all got some interesting reads from Dona. Now it’s her turn to take a long vacation while I will be entertaining you with some amazing stories and photos from overseas (give me some more time to get ahold of the video editing on my iMac and promise I will share videos too).

Although I was too busy in making the most of my journey in the US and my gadgets’ technical issues left me unable to share my experiences on the spot, I still posted some photos on my Instagram so if you want to have a look of what’s going to follow here, then go and follow @idol_image on your Instagram! (I always follow back 🙂 )

My holidays are not over yet and soon I will be hitting the beaches on some Greek coast. But we’ll get to that too 🙂

The jet-lag is getting me and need to go for now, will be back with a clearer mind shortly! In the meantime, have a great weekend,

Beach Retro

20130625-212740.jpg

It seems that every summer I have a thing with retro swimwear. It simply makes you feel like the diva of the beach and why not? the next Bond girl. Usually a retro swimsuit draws all attention to your curves (which some women might want to avoid), but hey, we are women and we should celebrate our curves!

The beach retro frenzy this summer (from left to right):

Michael Kors: 1. high waist bikini, 2. metallic ikat print retro bikini, 3. plunge ruffle maillot, 4. ruched bandeau one piece
