it's a wonderful place , one day i'll take you there


Gordon Gekko (Wall Street movie)
"I don't throw darts at a board. I bet on sure things. Read Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Every battle is won before it is ever fought."

J'adooooore .... Merci Charles Aznavour ...

If you have everything in life it is easier to lose yourself, it seems.
And if you do have everything it is also easier to understand that those are not the important things. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t get to that point. They spend their lives striving and still don’t learn those lessons. Other people figure it out at age twenty and they’re completely balanced and together and understand how to keep things in check from an early age.


Smart Girl (she was supposed to be dumb)

The British model(Cara Delevingne) , who is currently the face of the likes of Burberry, Chanel and DKNY, reportedly registered her name as an official trademark with the UK's Intellectual Property Office back in December 2012 – giving her sole rights to use it as a marketing tool.

Here is a French word that could prove particularly useful.  
Cette semaine (this week), it's déluge, which means "a downpour" or "a flood."
Since this winter seems to be the déluge that keeps on giving, here is one recommendation for staying dry and looking great:
 these Loeffler Randall booties, which are both waterproof and very cute with skinny jeans or a dress.

Hermès -Birkin

If Birkins are so expensive and so hard to get, then why do so many women carry them? Maybe they aren’t all that special anymore if everyone has them?
I believe the Birkin has become a bit démodé especially among the stylish set.



My Take on the Oscars:

What did you think??

Best Dressed: My votes went to Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Amanda Seyfreid, Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron and Naomi Watts…
The worst dressed… although I admire her… Jane Fonda… canary yellow is for sundresses and flip flops…
Bad hair… Kirsten Stewart… she must have left her brush in the car…
All around most glamorous… I can’t choose between Salma Hayek(her husband owns Gucci)
and Jessica Chastain…
I’ve decided that I am not sure about strapless…
That there was an over abundance of glitter…
That Adele is the new Shirley…
That Barbara Streisand is a living legend…
and that some of the men needed a haircut and a good shave…

Now this was class, style and much more elegance than anything now........

I just saw her in that movie The Savages being all vicious but Salma Hayek looked every inch the Hollywood diva in this dress with   showstopping heavily embroidered neckline by Alexander McQueen. Not to mention how flawless and original her hair was. Time to give her stylist that raise she deserves!



i have always liked most of the early music of  the Rolling Stones but this this.....my respects.

Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones set to defy BDS'ers and honor Israel 65th Birthday.
Despite a barrage of attacks from British, European and U.S. Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) groups, the Rolling Stones will perform their planned concert in Jerusalem on Israel’s Independence Day, Monday, April 15.
“We’ve been slammed and smacked and twittered a lot by the anti-Israeli side,” said Mick Jagger, the band’s leader and most recognizable member since 1963. “All I can say is: anything worth doing is worth overdoing. So we decided to add a concert on Tuesday.”

Kingdom Tower, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

A hand out picture made available by Kingdom Holding Company , shows the model of the world's tallest tower to be built in the Red Sea city of Jeddah....and construction has already started.

With a total construction area of over 500,000 square meters, the Kingdom Tower will be a mixed-use building, featuring a Four Seasons Hotel, Four Seasons serviced apartments, office space, luxury condominiums and an observatory at higher level than the world's
current highest observation deck.

Silicon Wadi (Hebrew: סיליקון ואדי‎, lit: "Silicon Valley") is an area with a high concentration of high-tech industries in the coastal plain in Israel, similar to Silicon Valley in California, in the United States. Silicon Wadi is considered second in importance only to its Californian counterpart. The area covers much of the country, although especially high concentrations of hi-tech industry can be found in the area around Tel Aviv


A Tattoo to Remember

a little take on Japan:

One aspect of the Japanese I'm a fan of, is their humility, the general tendency to be self-effacing and avoid boastfulness when dealing with others. This humility takes many forms, for example most Japanese will vehemently deny a compliment paid to them, or may deflect the compliment back to you with the phrase おかげさまで okage-sama de, which literally means "it's all thanks to you," said even if you just met the person in question and they had nothing to do with helping you attain whatever skill or ability you've just been praised for.

It is supposed to be  all about flats this spring. And the style with loose fitted denim or in the Celine-way with wide silky trousers.

Lion Lady Lee Pheungboonpra

Okay look now. She seems to be saying - I am Lady Lee of the rising sun. Lacquered hair, lacquered face, lacquered lips, lacquered nails, polished bling. Do I need to alert you to the fact that the only thing that keeps my skin youthful and smooth is to wear a jet cloth of the finest velvet from time to time? Do I need to tell you that I will top it with a necklace the size of my gardener's family home? No. Because I'm Lady Lee and you already know that, plebe.

Dr. Fleming and Dr. Mayer work in a private practice together at the Beverly Hills Institute and have spent more than 25 years practicing plastic surgery. The two doctors are renowned in celebrity circles for their work, which is both rejuvenating and subtle. They take pride in delivering results that are nearly undetectable and for that reason are known in celebrity circles as the best in the business.....and they  have perfected the hair flap which was invented by Dr Jose Juri of Argentina....

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons Dr. Richard Fleming and Dr. Toby Mayer have released their findings of the 14th annual “Famed Hottest Looks” which found that most women would like the long slender look of

Gisele Caroline Bündchen

patients want to look rested and energetic and, most of all, youthful like the celebrities they see on television, the big screen, on the internet, and glossy magazines,” explained Dr. Richard W. Fleming, co-director of The Beverly Hills Institute of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery with his partner, Dr. Toby G. Mayer.

La settimana scorsa è stato l'anniversario di morte dell'Avvocato Gianni Agnelli, uno degli uomini
dotati di maggior senso dello stile di tutti i tempi, a mio parere. Ho sempre avuto un grande senso
di ammirazione per l'Avvocato, mi piaceva il suo charme, il suo modo di comunicare e non per
ultimo la sua innata classe. In questa immagine degli anni 60/70 è in compagnia di nientemeno che
Jackie Kennedy..............accoppiata perfetta!

They say beauty runs in the family – nothing could be truer for these two fabulous Parisians who sit front-row at fashion shows and are heiresses to one of the largest cosmetics companies in the world. The Clarins girls are fixtures on the fashion scene, attending exclusive parties, being snapped by street-style bloggers and playing ambassadresses to the family business, French luxury cosmetics company, Clarins.

The thing is you have to smell, and when you smell it, if something happens
 between the perfume(cologne) and you, then that’s what I call emotion. 
Ask for a sample and put it on your skin. If you like it on your skin, you can buy. 
No rush, take the time, because perfume is like a love affair. It’s not good to rush a love affair.

Anonymous asked: I am 5'11" and have a really tiny waist but I have quite wide hips and it's quite awkward sometimes 
for clothes. I do ballet so I have a flat stomach do you think it's good for modelling? 
several agencies have approached me already
What do you think? Agencies have approached you already and they know far more than I do.
 Trust their judgement.

One who understands the art of living will not be indulgent in eating, especially when presented 
with delicious dishes. When they are half-full, they will put down their forks or chopsticks.

'Maradona è meglio ‘e Pelé' (Maradona es mejor que Pelé,

It looks like the radical environmental left may have to find a new favorite dirty four letter word.
Scientists at Ohio State University have announced the discovery of a 
new process that takes the energy from coal without burning it – 
"and removes virtually all of the pollution."
