Our snow-lacking ski trip this New Year’s left me with the very unsettled feeling as I haven’t gotten my snow fix at all. I mean not even a snow ball fight…. really people?! So now as I pack down the winter decor I still dream of winter wonderland. So white we are at it, why don’t dream up the perfect winter get-away. Something like this Sugar Bowl Residence by John Maniscalco Architecture.

Some images possess the 5D powers. Like these out-of-the-world renderings of the award-winning Wadi Rum Resort in Jordan by super-talented team of Oppenheim Architecture + Design.
We all know what 3D is, so the 4th D is for the sound and feel of the swooping sand between the mountains which I can swear you get just by looking at this presentation. And the 5th D I give for the incredible peaceful and relaxing after-taste that is left with you, it’s almost like going on a mini vacation. Don’t you agree?

I promised to share, once I get back to normal pace..so I finally went through trillion of snaps and put together a little collage of the first stop of our dreamy vacation this last September.
We’ve spent an incredible 5 days in the most beautiful city in the world and it felt more like a teaser for the future come-backs. You really can’t have enough of that place no matter how long you stay there.
Now I have to say something in my defense. You say: “Beret, stripe top and Eiffel Tower. Could you be any more innovative?”. And I say: “Please, let the girl get it out of the system right away!”. I’ve DONE all of the clichés and I’m PROUD of it!
Even if Paris wouldn’t have had a single site to see, the food and long walks would still lit the lights!
Macarooooons! Need I say more?!
Style vs. Comfort?! It was never a question for me. If you have to suffer in order to wear THOSE shoes, then this will be it! Practicing what I preach, I was teh only one climbing the stairs of the Eiffel Tower in hills. But at the end of the day after walking the streets, the gilded halls, then streets again and some more gilded halls even I gave up. So, YES we did wrinkle the perfectly groomed Versailles lawns.
PS. Honey, thank you for letting me borrow you stylishly comfy sneakers! Love ya!

I just want to let you know that I’ll be out of you till October 8th. Where will I be? In my dream wonderland, of course. Feeding on macaroons, taking in the beauty and glittering in the lights of the city. Please, don’t bother getting a hold of me: no emails, texts or calls. They don’t have social networks here.
Au Revior! I’ll miss you…hmmm, not really.

in my dreams so far, but soon to be reality. Can’t wait!
