Swan Lake

Only mentioned because of my latest obsession with the Dances of the Swans from the 2nd act of one of the most beautiful ballets in history. 

(Notice the amazing picture!)

Smoking gets in your eyes...

In less than 2 weeks the 5th season of the most expected show kicks off on amc. Be prepared for another round of the 60's chic in a haze of nicotine-free cigarettes.

Am I the only one who suddenly finds smoking sexy?

I heart Prada

Oh it's only the most beautiful bag I've seen in my life.

Miuccia Prada, fashion genius, designed a line of 46 bags (the shape of all is same) for the fashionweeks this year. It means that you can buy those amazing limited edition totes only during the first seven days in the city where currently there is a fashionweek. 
So, people in L. A., what are you waiting for?

Pardon my French

Do you know anyone who wouldn't love Paris?
I don't.

What's not to love about sitting in a café, sipping delicious coffee and watching people walking on the Boulevard Saint Germain?

Reading time...

It's a book like no other. Pascal Mercier takes the reader for a philosophical journey from Bern to Lisbon. A classics teacher realizing he is being stucked in his life leaves the classroom and out of blue decides to go to the capital of Portugal. He has a book written by a mysterious man and his aim becomes finding any information about him. Willing to know more? Read it! It's worth it.
Or if you dislike reading there is a film adaptation with Jeremy Irons and Melanie Laurent coming in 2013...

Fat Thursday!

The tastiest holiday of the year! Fat Thursday is this one day when girls leave their calories counters at home and despite hard frost form long lines in front of confectioneries in both Germany and Poland. What we eat are pączki or berliner, that can roughly be translated as doughnuts. Usually they have rose jam filling and are glazed (sometimes also decorated with some zest).

Bon Appetit!

And the Oscar goes to...

Jean Dujardin as George Valentin and Berenice Bejo as Peppy Miller

Nominated in 10 categories, "The Artist" is a real phenomen of this year's Academy Awards. Who could have predicted that people will absolutely love a silent film in the era of 3D and special effects? Even one month after the official release the cinemas in London were full (I went to see it on Wednesday afternoon and there was almost no free tickets).  Michel Hazanavicius brought back the charm of Hollywood's best times and let's praise him for that!

Uggy - the shining star of "The Artist"
