Les Adorables...








I love Meryl Streep! I'm so happy that she won. Totally deserved it. I watched "The Iron Lady" Sunday night and it was brilliant. And OMG - I love her speeches. The Golden Globe's one was really funny. The Oscar one was too, but also very emotional and touching. And she looked fabulous. Imagine, being nominated 17 times already... Oh, and I really liked Colin Firth's introduction of all nominees but one could see that he had a special relationship with her.... (All the other 4 nominees were great but I was rooting for Meryl from the start!) Oh, and don't miss the BAFTA Awards... playing a bit of Cinderella, losing her shoe on the way up to the stage and Colin Firth (who was actually introducing the nominees at all 3 events and every time handing the award to Meryl, as it is...) picking it up for her. Good to see she does not take herself too seriously...

Feeling of the Day...


Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.

Body and Soul...

Went ice skating at the Wiener Eistraum with some friends this evening. I totally forgot how much it is... But tomorrow I'll surely wake up with sore legs. I should really work out more... Unbelieveably, I've never been skating at the Eistraum before in the past 27 years. It's quite crowded in the evening but I loved sliding along under the trees and lanterns in the park in front of the City Hall...

Shoemanic...

The Humanic website is currently under construction, so I was surfing around for some of my favourite posters of last year's campaign. I did not buy those shoes because I already had similar ones but I do love the dress the model is wearing... I actually did not notice the shoes at first but the dress. I still want to have one like that, it's so 50's-like.

Sound Garden...


 

"Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride."

Le Havre


This week's surprise at our weekly Thursday night movie date at Cinemagic. After reading the synopsis we all thought this would be a rather sad and depressive movie but it was a lot of fun and really the feel-good and fairy tale kind of type...

Feeling of the Day...


The best way to spend a cold and rainy afternoon: 
coffee and chat with a good friend, 
especially when you haven't seen each other for a while already...

Адмиралъ (The Admiral)



Must see! Unfortunately I'm gonna miss the first movie night of the Wiener Euro-Asiatisches Forum / Венский Евро-Азиатский Форум" because we've already got tickets for the Musikverein next Friday. And they're gonna play Tchaikovsky. I'm really torn this time... And I'd so love to see this one in company. (I have this thing for Russian Marine uniforms... one of the reasons why I've always loved Sean Connery in "The Hunt for Red October" so much!) Aaaahhhhh.... *huge sigh*

On the Big Screen...



I promised a friend to watch it with her (not before June anway...). I'm actually not such a big fan of Kristen Stewart, but I do like Charlize Theron a lot as well as fairytales and costume films. And it's from the producers of "Alice in Wonderland" so I have a bit of hope...

Strictly Ballroom...

On Friday, February 10, Ines and I went to the Wiener Kaffeesieder Ball at the Hofburg (former imperial palace). I haven't been at a ball for ages and it was absolutely awesome. Imagine, 11 years ago I was among the opening committee. I even got one of those beautiful little Swarovski tiaras... My feet were killing me when I went home (sometime around 3AM) and it was freezing cold outside and my eyes were dry and burning (the tiny handbag matching my gown (both brand new) was too small to fit in my glasses so I had to endure with contact lenses - and it was so hot inside). And the present for the ladies was really cool, too. Ines and I were participating at the Quadrille and also dacing the Polka (it's really hard to grab your partner, dress and handbag at the same time while galloping around the ball room...)

Here are some picture for you... Don't we look absolutely fabulous?!

Because I've been to the Kaffeesieder Ball last night and those dresses are really awesome... almost like in a fairy tale.

Colour Up Your Life...

Aaaawwww.... Got the latest Esprit Newsletter with the new spring collection! Love the colours. I'm a big fan of blouses (with floral prints, especially) and blazers and chinos... Sigh! I guess I'll have to stop by in the Esprit store tomorrow. Still got a gift card. And hey... I've always had a passion for pink! Hard to resist...

Recycled wedding dresses... Just found this by chance on the lovely frankie magazine website. They have this swesome vintage section there... Love the dress and the hairstyle. And I've always thought that wearing your wedding dress only once is a bit of a waste... My best friend found her dress in a vintage store like that and it was absolutely perfect! We've both been a bit critical before but once she saw the dress, we were both convinced. 

Besides this picture makes me long for spring time - and warmer weather. It's like Siberia right now... (I know I've been complaining about not having winter before but right now it kinda sucks I always have to dress up like an Eskimo before leaving the house...)

And that hairstyle would be terrific for the ball on Friday night... but I think my hair still is not long enough for that...
