Today I wanted to share the gorgeous and very special pictures of Danish actress Freja Zeuthen. Not only because the pictures are stunning (the flowered crowns!!), but also because Freja is a stunning person, both inside and out. Freja has become a good friend of me and my little family since we first met a couple of years ago, and I am always amazed by her – she’s so much fun, compassionate, and sweet at the same time. A true Scandinavian beauty, if you ask me. I really REALLY hope that all of her dreams come true. She deserves it so much. And I have no doubt the rest of the world would love her as much as me and my family does.

Ok, so the image to the right isn’t technically about something in black & white, but I loved these images together so much that I had to post it. And seriously, how stylish would you look with you hair up in knots like this (how-to by A Beautiful Mess here) while strolling through your neighborhood with your dog on this triangle dog leash? Happy Thursday, friends!

PS: These earrings & necklace would also be a great match for this! Have you entered the giveaway yet?

Happy Wednesday, friends! Having a good week? It’s a pretty big one for us, and hopefully I’ll be able to tell you more about what’s going on soon! Spring is still nowhere in sight here in NYC – we’ve got to run from one place to the other with the stroller because it’s so cold and windy here in Battery Park city. But my mind is already in place where the flowers are budding and everything looks bright in the Spring sun. Here are some of the things on my wish list these days, in a warm spring palette of pastels, bright pink and gold. Hope you like it!

1. I’ve always wanted a globe in my home to show our daughters about all the place we talk about. Love this vintage globe at Ia’s Vintage.
2. These little paper bags are too adorable, perfect for little party favors! By love Mae.
3. Love the pop of neon against the simplicity of the grey fabric of this quilt by Paper Plane Home.
4. I wish they made these my size!  Metallic suede bootie by Juicy Couture.
5. How pretty is this ring? Love the roughness of the metal. Geo drusy ring in blush at Leif Shop.
6. I can NEVER have enough washi tape. Great combination of colors and patterns by Torie Jayne, who seems just as addicted as me :)
7. Pretty hand-painted little treasure box by Anamarko.

The men of the house should want to look their best for their ladies today, right? Well, I’ve got just what you need, some fun bow ties! Forage has some really great bow ties for men – love all the patterns. I want to get hubby one, he doesn’t have a bow tie yet! And for the little ones, are adorable is this cardigan + bow tie set by Haddon & Co.? If I had a little boy, I’d be stocking up on these!

Sometimes the most simple things are also the best. My favorite thing to do with hubby isn’t going to a fancy restaurant or doing crazy things like going on a hot air balloon ride – although, let’s not lie, all of these things are nice! My one, very favorite thing is to do it to cuddle up with hubby under a blanket. Every night we have the habit of watching one or two episodes of our favorite show (right now we’re into House of Cards, so good! Anybody else hooked?!), and we just lay on the couch under a cosy blanket. It’s not that it’s cold in our place, but there is something about the blanket that makes the experience complete. It makes us feel cosy and warm and closer to each other – sort of like a cocoon. We’re in our own little world. Anybody else feels the same way?

1. Puffer throw at Land’s End. You can add your initials on it! | 2.  Gorgeous grey ikat throw by Gypsya. |3. Love the colors of this trive print blanket from Leif.|4. I’ve this eying this polka dot quilted throw from Utility Canvas for a while now!|5. Pretty little vintage plaid blanket at Beggar’s Banquet.|6. How adorable is this rain day wool throw at Leif?

Mud’s Valentine’s day window in their SOHO shop in NYC.

I came across the prettiest, most functional collection of ceramics and thought I’d share that with you today. Living in NYC, space is super tight – especially when it comes to the kitchen. Counter space is basically non-existent, and we almost have no cabinets – so I am very picky about what goes in there because I want everything to be pretty and functional. Enter Mud Australia and its beautiful collection of handmade ceramics. No fuss, it’s all about simplicity with Mud – all of the pieces are designed to emphasize natural lines and functionality. Use every day or dress them up for a friendly dinner, Mud really is the perfect dinnerware.

Mud‘s collection includes about 50 designs (plates, carafes, bowls, etc) and about 20 different colors that you can mix and match….and I had so much fun doing just that when I visited their shop in SOHO last week – who knew one could have so much fun stacking up plates? :) Each piece is entirely hand made in their Sydney studio from the best materials available, and is completely unique. And the even better part? These pretties go in the oven. AND the microwave. AND the dishwasher. Seriously. What else could you ask for?!

So, where can you find Mud if you’re not in New York? You can find some of their pieces in online shops like Gretel Home or Horne, and you also can order anything from the store on Crosby St in New York just by emailing soho@mudaustralia or calling (646) 569-9191. And if you’re in Australia, you can of course order from the shops in Sydney & Melbourne.

PS: Food bloggers – these would make the best photo props too!

Just a little pre Valentine’s Day message to the love of my life….because really, I can’t possibly just save my love for him for just one day. I don’t really like Valentines day – it’s so commercial and sometimes a bit superficial…a red and pink hearts overload! But how could I not like the spirit of it? I’m all about telling the people I love that I love them, especially  when it involves doing a little something sweet and simple for them like paper cutting 😉 any day of the year. Are you guys preparing anything fun for your loved one for V-day?Let me know, I’d love to know what you’re up to!

PS: Talking about love, you should remember to do this!
