Absolutely DYING to go on a French vacation with my girlfriends! Not just to Paris, but the countryside and the Riviera. Early in the morning, dressed in our most elegant attire, we would enter the Pâtisserie, point out a baguette or a croissant with a perfectly polished finger then enjoy our breakfast (along with some coffee and fruit) at a small, round iron table with a few chairs. Some things are best enjoyed with the girls.
Just found this picture on Tumblr and I had to post it. This picture is so gorgeous, I don't think I need to say much. It reminds me of the Secret Garden.
I love the dark black eye makeup with the coral lips (a look I have been replicate with no luck)...and then the matching coral rose and her black nails. Anyone else notice that? There is something so feminine but strong at the same time. Too bad no ever goes out really looking like this.
Imagine what this girl's life is like...

Do you ever wonder what exactly is in your food? I'm talking about the health benefits and nutrients in the individual ingredients you consume everyday.
Carolina Hummel is an aspiring chef and a bona fide fashionista with a talent for picking out both common and unusual individual ingredients and then creating recipes that not only feature, but enhance the special flavor unique to that single item. She infuses her love of all things beautiful (and tasty) in the kitchen. You won't find extremely complicated, expensive to compile recipes. I like to call her a modern minimalist chef--only the most functional and necessary elements are used. And boy, does she love ginger!
Ingredients blogged on so far include:
-String bean (her specialty)
You can find her blog here!
