On selling pieces from her personal collection...


"I had all of these wonderful things and I'm not doing much with the business anymore as I'm doing so much with fashion. I put these items away when I sold my company years ago—we owned a company called Old World Weavers and I also had an interior design business. I couldn't do everything, but I always kept these pieces thinking that one day I would go back. Then my [MET] show came and my fashion life began, and I've been enjoying it so much that I decided that I preferred to do this. I have all of these lovely things that I've collected over the years that are just sitting there and are very hard to part with. I finally decided that it was ridiculous and that people should enjoy them. One Kings Lane came along and it was the perfect marriage, so we decided to go…

JEANNE LANVIN EXHIBITION IN PARIS!

From Saturday 07 March 2015 to Sunday 23 August 2015The Palais Galliera presents the first Parisian retrospective of Jeanne Lanvin, who founded the oldest fashion house still in operation. This exhibition offers an original scenography realised with the help of Alber Elbaz, the current artistic director of Lanvin. The exhibits come from the Palais Galliera's collections as well as of Lanvin's own collection. In 1908, Jeanne Lanvin proposed her first collection for children. Based on this success, she joined the great names of Parisian haute couture and opened several departments. The label employed more than 1,000 workers. In the 20s, the colour blue and its variations become a trademark for Lanvin, while Jeanne Lanvin made evening and lame boleros another trademark piece.  Event website : www.lanvin.com



TAILORING TIPS!

1. WEAR YOUR HAIR DOWN TO CREATE A FEMININE CONTRAST WITH A MASCULINE SUIT. THIS LOOK IS ABOUT CONFIDENCE, BUT IT SHOULDN'T DETRACT FROM THE WEARER'S FEMININITY.
2. KEEP JEWELRY TO A MINIMUM. SIMPLE RINGS AND BRACELETS WORK BETTER THAN STATEMENT PIECES.
3. EVEN IF THEY ARE INTENDED TO BE LOOSE, PANTS NEED TO FIT PERFECTLY. THE CUT SHOULD ALWAYS FLATTER THE BEHIND AND NEVER BE SHAPELESS. 
4. PULL UP THE JACKET SLEEVES. A DELICATE WRIST ADDS SEX APPEAL AND PROPOTIONALLY IT TENDS TO LOOK BETTER.
5. IF YOU WEAR A HEEL, MAKE SURE THE TROUSERS PUDDLE OVER THE SHOE SO YOU CAN'T SEE THE THIN HEEL. TRY NOT TO WEAR WITH POINT BLACK STILETTOS, THEY LOOK TOO BUSINESS-LIKE-A SHOE WITH A TWIST IS ALWAYS SUCCESFUL.









MY GOLDEN RULES!

1. TRUST YOUR GUT. MINE IS LOUDEST WHEN I AM SLEEPING, SOLVING PROBLEMS AND GETTING NEW IDEAS.
2. IN EVERY TERRIBLE THING THAT HAPPENS, LOOK FOR THE HIDDEN BLESSINGS AND BELIEVE THAT IT IS LEADING YOU TO SOMETHING GREATER.
3.FEEL GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU ARE, A UNIQUE HUMAN BEING.
4. KEEP CLOSE GIRLFIRIENDS, DEEP, LOYAL AND LONG.
5.LAUGH AT YOURSELF. BEING EASILY OFFENDED MEANS YOU ARE HOLDING ON TOO TIGHT. LET GO AND FIND THE HUMOR. YOU WILL FEEL LIGHTER.
6. TRY TO FIGURE OUT THAT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT YOU IT IS NOT OF YOUR BUSINESS AND DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THEM. THIS WILL HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY.
7. FOR THE MOST PART, WE ARE GOING THROUGH LIFE ON AUTOPILOT. ASK YOURSELF: "HOW WOULD I BE DOING MY JOB IF NOONE SHOWED ME? IS THERE A BETTER WAY/"
8. CARE ON WHAT YOU DO MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.IT IS REMARKABLE WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU CARE THE MOST.
9. THERE IS A ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT IN EVERYTHING WE DO, WHETHER PRODUCTS OR RELATIONSHIPS.
10. GROWING UP, GET E…

Based in the cool 10th arrondissement by Canal Saint-Martin, this is no dingy backpaper joint-we are talking roof terrace with terrace with sunset views of the Sacre-Coeur, en suites and a buzzy bar and restaurant. With Eurostar return tickets Paris is now totally affordable.



PORTO
Portugal's second-largest city has been under the radar for years, but thanks to a rash of new galleries, restaurants, boutiques and hotels, it is started to get seriously noticed. Take advantage of Easy Jet's flights from Manchester, Bristol, and Luton from April 2015.



SEVILLE
Game of Thrones fun? HBO has confirmed part of series five is being filmed around Andalucia's Seville, thanks to the area's Moorish fortresses and lush gardens. Our trip is Casa de Carmona, a Renaissance palace just outside the city where you can wallow in GOT-style opulence but easil…

BAILEYS CHOCOLATE MACAROONS

To seriously impress your friends!

-Beat 2 large egg whites, then gradually fold in 120g sugar until the mixture is shiny and stiff. Mix 50g ground almonds with 1tbsp cocoa powder and gently fold this into the egg-white mix. 
-Spoon it all into a piping bag and squeeze about 60 3cm blobs onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Now flatten each dollop with a side of a knife and bake them at 180 celsius degrees for 15 mins. Once done, set aside to cool. 
-For the filling, warm 100ml Baileys Original Irish Cream and grate 150g ready-made dark chocolate ganache into the liquid, stirring until it melts. Lastly, add 50g butter in small chunk, and allow to cool until it is a nice smooth piping consistency.
-Give the mixture a good stir, poor it into a piping bag, and dollop a liitle onto 30 of your macaroons. Sandwich them up with the other halves, and you are done!
 Seriously impressive and easy. 



BAILEYS CHOCOLATE ORANGE CUPCAKES

Totally simple, totally delish!

-Preheat the oven to 190 celsius degrees and line a cupcake tray with 12 paper cases.
-Mix together 250g plain flour , 3tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 125g caster sugar and a little fresh orange rind. 
-Then in a separate bowl, whisk together 225ml Baileys Irish Cream with Orange Truffle, 1 egg and 90ml vegetable oil. Pour this into the dry mixture and stir. Divide the lot between your bun cases and bake for 30 mins until golden brown. 
-While your cupcakes cool, melt 300g dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then stir in 200ml Baileys Irish Cream with Orange Truffle. Beat until it's thick and cool, spread (or pipe, if you are feeling fancy) over the cupcakes and enjoy! 



BAILEYS BAKED CHHESECAKE

Because who doesn't love cheesecake?

-Crush 110g oat biscuits and mix with 25g melted butter
-Press the mixture firmly into a cake tin and  bake for 20 mins at 200 celsius degrees, then leave it to cool. That's your buttery biscuit base sorted.
- Next up, whisk 250g mascarpone with 200g fromage frais until smooth,then add 2 large eggs and 40g caster sugar and whisk again. In a glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, gently melt 100g dark chocolate and add it to the mixture with 50ml Baileys Original Irish Cream. Pour this onto the base and bake at 150 celsius degrees for 1hr 15mins.When the time is up, turn off the oven but don't take it out until it's cool-this pro tip should keep your cake from cracking.
-All that's left to do is drizzle chocolate sauce cream, toffee beans or whatever tasty topping you fancy on top ,and tuck in!

13 THINGS MENTALLY STRONG PEOPLE DON'T DO!

Well, here is a list of some basic things mentally strong people don't do. You would be surprised if you incorporate in your daily life these tips for breaking the cycle of negative thinking!
MENTALLY STRONG PEOPLE:
1)THEY DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR THEMSELVES
Feeling sorry for yourself requires a lot of mental energy and won't change the situation. If you allow it to take hold, self-pity will ignite a flurry of negative emotions, increasing the likelihood of failures that breed even more self-pity.
TIP: Change the channel; don't allow yourself to continue thinking that life isn't fair. Instead, sit down and list the people, circumstances and experiences in life that you can be thankful for.
2) THEY DON'T GIVE AWAY THEIR POWER
If you give others the power to determine your self-worth, you will only be as good as someone else's opinion of you. Giving way your power lends itself to helplessness. You will become a passenger in your own life.
TIP: Don't try solving a pr…

TO DANIELA WITH LOVE!

For every single woman the day of the new baby born is the most special day of her life. From the time she carries the baby inside her she dreams of his/her name, his/her appeareance and actually she dreams of giving her best in all areas and levels concerning her child. This post is dedicated to my close  but at the same time overseas friend, Daniela who is waiting for her baby in a few months. After some brainstorming, I thought of some names for your little princess, Daniela. 
Let me share with you these names, and hopefully you may choose and like one of them! I would be honored!

1) Daphne: Derived from the Greek daphne (a laurel or bay tree). The name is borne in Greek mythology by a nymph, the daughter of the river-god Peneus. She escaped from the attentions of Apollo by being transformed into a laurel tree.
2)Danae: In Greek mythology, Danae was a daughter of King Acrisius of Argos and his wife Queen Eurydice. She was the mother of the hero Perseus by Zeus.
3) Phoebe: One of the He…
