"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around." - in Love Actually
It's Christmas, let's share the love!

Christmas is that time of the year when everyone rushes to get presents for their loved ones. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's not... Either way we love Christmas Shopping! And tonight we are going to do ours. Wish us luck!

This year we won't be able to spend Christmas with our loved ones. And we were just talking about how important Christmas is for us on our previous post.
It really means a lot to us to spend these moments with our family. So the solution was to have an early celebration. This year, Christmas comes early and it will be already tomorrow.
We have to go now, we have a plain to catch...

Christmas is that time of the year that really makes us smile. Spending special moments with the family celebrating the festive season is one of our favorite things.
Do you enjoy Christmas as much as we do?
Wish you all a fabulous day!

When we were kids we used to love Alanis Morissette. Singing and dancing or just shaking our heads to the sound.
And tonight we are heading to the O2 Arena, here in London, to watch her live concert.

Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain's most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean's busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer. The city's avant-garde chefs whip up a storm that has even the French reaching for superlatives.

Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, there is a Spanish cosmopolitan city with one of the Mediterranean's busiest ports.
Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer.
Breaking ground in art, architecture and style since the late 19th century. From the marvels of Modernism to the modern wonders of today, the racing heart of this city has barely skipped a beat.
Can you guess where we are heading?

Magic Channing? Channing Tatum will most likely be People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive this year. People refuses to verify that before the official announcement on November 14. But this, at least, gives us a few extra days to debate whether Channing is worthy of the crown. What do you think?

Some people say the best things in life come in small packages. Well, in this case, we couldn't agree more!
There will soon be a new member joining the family. And honestly, it's impossible to stop thinking of all the beautiful little clothes and baby shoes...

Yes, it rains in the U.K., and as everyone around the globe knows, Burberry’s exponentially increasing fortunes spring from Christopher Bailey’s manipulation of trench-coat iconography.
So it’s hard to criticize a formula that is clearly successful, absolutely recognizable, and unwavering in its continuity. Bailey tagged his resort collection “sensual strictness,” but compared to other pre-collections, there’s actually more of a casual air about the reworkings of house tailoring, like his taupe-and-ivory seersucker pantsuit, paper-bag–waisted trousers coordinated with “Prorsum” print T-shirts, knits with swooped necklines, and the house’s signature shrunken motorcycle jackets. At the young end, there are cute printed shorts (actually boxers, adapted from the men’s collection) and at the slightly more mature end, pencil skirts. The trench, though, gets its moment of glory moment, upgraded to a light gold lamé.

We are back to London after two weeks of holidays in Portugal. And last week we celebrated our 30th birthday, or Sweet 30, as we like to say.
The cake was the highlight and we would love to share some pictures with you.
It was a "Lady Dior", one of our favorite handbags of all times. This "Devil's food cake" is made of chocolate and the filling was mascarpone and fruit, as strawberries and berries. One word: delicious! The worst part was to cut this masterpiece. Have a look and you will understand why...
We would like to say a big thank you to Marisol from "Sweet things" for everything, as she is the face and artist behind this amazing birthday cake.
What are your thoughts of our Lady Dior birthday cake, Shining Stars?

Victoria's Secret London flagship store launch date has finally arrived. The long-awaited boutique on Bond Street will open its doors today, Wednesday August 29. The new store follows the opening of the smaller Westfield Stratford branch last month.
The impressive 40,386 square-foot emporium lives up to all hype - there are three floors of sparkling, super-glamorous and frilled fancies to choose from. While there are more pink, striped furnishings than fans could possibly wish for, the interior also has a British twist - think decorative paintings, carved, wooden fixtures and giant glass chandeliers. Walls are covered with black and white photographs of the Angels signed by the models themselves, while the shop floor is dotted with costumes from the brand's 2011 catwalk show in all their feathered, winged glory. Other highlights include the fourth-floor, invite-only VIP suite, where high-profile shoppers can sit in a makeshift library on plush sofas as they are presented with the label's latest collections. Sadly for fans, there will be no star-studded launch party - and no Angels will be present to celebrate today's opening. We have our fingers crossed for a London show instead.
The London flagship store has been one of the most anticipated launches of the year, and was first announced over a year ago in August 2011. Originally set to open prior to the Olympics alongside its Westfield sister store, the opening of the huge Bond Street space had been postponed until now.
Guess where we are going today.

It was amazing when my brother and sister-in-law called saying they were travelling to London to make me a last minute surprise.
Now that they are here we are over the moon. It is going to be shopping and sightseeing non-stop. And it starts now. Let's go!

Mischa Barton says opening her eponymous store has been "quite an adventure".
The stunning actress launched her flagship clothing boutique in London's fashionable east end earlier this week. Mischa is proud of her new venture and says opening her own store seemed the next step after delivering eight successful seasons of her handbag line.
Friday, 10 August 2012
Mischa Barton has launched her own boutique in London. Following on from her successful bag range the actress has designed her own clothing and cosmetic collections, now available to buy in the new Spitalfields store.
"It's nice that everything now has a home, a hub," she said. "The brand was born in London, so I wanted [the store] to start here. Spitalfields Market is a perfect fit, because even though it's East, it's still very contained. The stores are really beautiful and old, and there are some really interesting brands here. It's a good place to start. Also, now it's super hip."
The clothing collection, she says, is loosely based on her own personal style - but is aimed at a wide-ranging audience. "There are some very young pieces, some more sophisticated, mature pieces, and also some quirky stuff that's more like my wardrobe," she explained. "There are plenty of pieces for people who don't just want to dress like Mischa. It's for women ranging from 15 to 35. There are different pieces that will appeal to different styles, but the main thing is I wanted it to feel functional and easy to wear. (...) It'll be Forties-meets-Seventies with the occasional bit of Twenties - that sounds a bit random, but I'll take elements of different decades," she said.
Price points are affordable, ranging from between £25 and £250 - something that Barton emphasises was important to her.
"I don't think my fans are going out and buying £2,000 bags," she said. "It has to be accessible. I like the idea of making really cool things that are actually available to people."
The Mischa Barton boutique opens today, but will have an official launch day tomorrow Saturday 11 August - during which customers will have the chance to meet Mischa, and enjoy 10 per cent off all purchases along with a glass of celebratory champagne.
What about you, Shining stars, will you visit Mischa Barton's boutique tomorrow?

"Life is beautiful. Live it your way"
Yesterday we went to Selfridge's and were introduced to Lancôme's new parfum, La vie est belle. A richly simple balance blending the rare nobility of Iris, the stirring depth of Patchouli and the child-like delights of a gourmand accord. As usual, with most Lancôme products, we couldn't resist it!

Victoria's Secret Angels
Victoria's Secret has opened its debut London store today in the Westfield Stratford shopping centre. If the boutique's impressive lingerie selection isn't enough to tempt you, a window display featuring the most iconic outfits from the label's 2011 show might seal the deal. This summer, shoppers can expect to see Angel wings and the underwear worn by the brand's most famous muses - including Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldrige and Erin Heatherton - on show.
The shop is every bit as feminine as you might imagine, complete with bright pink interiors and oversized custom-made chandeliers. Despite rumours over the weekend, the opening date of the label's Bond Street London flagship is still yet to be confirmed.

It's a pretty simple look, as we're just wearing a bikini and sunglasses. Sitting by the swimming pool and chatting with some friends, we're enjoying the sunny weather in Funchal, Madeira.
We're going to have a long day... and just can't wait!

Summer has just arrived and we couldn't be happier!
This summer we will find ourselves wrapped in heavenly fabrics, lace, crochet, adorned with fabulous vivid color as neon colors, as well as soft neutrals, and pastels - most popular being soft mint green and yellow, lots of red, not to mention flowing floral prints hanging on the racks...
As we love everything about Summer days there are already lots of things we want to do and just cannot wait.
What about you, what are your plans for this Summer?
