Last but not least…..The great, inimitable Charlie Chaplin — who had been living in self-imposed exile in Switzerland for two decades — blows a kiss to the crowd while accepting an honorary Oscar in 1972 for “the incalculable effect he has had in making motion pictures the art form of this century.” When he was introduced to the audience, Chaplin received a twelve-minute standing ovation.

A Very Chic Nursery

I am not fond of themed nurseries mainly because my kids grow out of them and I errr get bored of them easily!!! …..There are so many ways to create fabulous nurseries without sticking to any themes… Fashion designer Laura Diego did just that for her little daughter Georgiana’s nursery… it turned out to be really chic and I must say that this is one of my favorite nurseries that I came across so far!…. I love the fact that the room suits little Georgiana right now (with all of her age appropriate toys etc) but at the same time it allows her to add her own personality to it as she grows older…. its basically a room that she will grow into instead of out of !!!

I love the George Nelson lamp, the white shelves, and the light grey walls… they all somehow complement the hot-pink painting by Russell Young of Elizabeth Taylor in her role as “Maggie” from the movie “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof”, which in my opinion made the room!

Double Trouble !

I wanted to share a few new trends that are double the trouble or should I say that will get us in double the trouble ! 😉

Double Bags:

As a mother of 3 young kids I have no choice but to carry two bags around most of the time … I don’t mind doing that any more mainly because its so in right now 😉

Double Cuffs:

Wearing two cuffs is not a very new trend its been around for a couple of seasons now …… Actually a bit more than that …..Cleopatra did it , Wonder Woman did it and now I guess we get to do it too !

Phoebe Philo and Sofia Coppola show us how its done.

Double braids: 

Double braids are nothing new to us either ….. I am sure that every single one of us ladies have had them at least once when we were little girls ….. Although back, double braids are much more refined this time.
