Swimmers, bathers, bikinis, bathing suits, maillot....

However you call them, they evoke summer like no other word. I was introduced to the brand Eres, many years ago when I was in Paris. A french friend of mine, told me the "ONLY" bathing suit to buy was one from Eres. She said they are tres expensive but "you will have it forever". So I bought one and I still have it and wear it too! Here are some gorgeous ones from the 09 collection. For more check ERES

Breakfast of champions?

Hello lovelies, I'm feeling very uninspired about breakfast (which incidentally) is one of my favorite meals of the day. But I need some new ideas, what do you, dear reader, have for breakfast? Coffee only? Granola, toast...send me some inspiration please.

Happy Friday!

Friday again -woohoo. Here are some lovely images to start your Memorial Day weekend. It is going to be very warm this weekend, so why not kick it off with an Acapulco Cliff Hanger:
1 cup watermelon chunks, pureed in the blender and strained (makes about 1/3 cup), 2 ounces Tequlia, 1 ounce lemon simple syrup, 1 ounce lime juice 
1 ounce Cointreau-This inventive drink will take the edge off a scorching afternoon. Fill a chilled glass with ice. Pour everything except the soda, into the glass and stir to chill. Add soda and stir again. Squeeze the lime on top and drop into the glass. Garnish with a lime and a wedge and serve! Bottoms up!
Set the table
Get your grill on...Aussie burgers are ready
And dessert - Strawberry Dumpling anyone?

Fashion Monday

Some fashion trends I'm really liking...
The sequined look, the other day, a co worker came in with this fab sequined dress, with a little Tee over it. So glam but understated. I'm also loving running shoes with dresses...and head scarves...
Gorgeous Sequined Jacket from Garance Dore
And oddly enough, am digging head scarves. Spotted on Seen and Said.

Spotted on Loveology, dress from this company.

What would you do if... had one completely free afternoon all to yourself? Five glorious hours. I'd picnic in Central Park and then check out this exhibit with Conor.

Off to Toronto tonight to spend the weekend with my parents, and to spend Mother's day with my lovely Mum. Looking forward to a relaxing weekend, going on some jogs in the ravine, doing a little shopping, checking out the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and having brunch for Mum at Frank. Happy weekend and to all the mother's out there - have a great Sunday. xox

Tse Tse

Many years ago I had the pleasure of working on some press around this great French company, Tse Tse. Here are some of their quirky, fun designs, including their amazing atelier. 
Some gorgeous ceramics.

Check out the studio, what an inspiring space.

I have a few of their accordion style notebooks.
I love their chandeliers, elegant but fun.

Happy Friday

Friday again, and time seems to be flying by at warp speed. It's gray here in New York and is meant to be a rainy spring weekend, at least it will be good for the garden! Here are some images I spotted this week from around the web that made me smile...PS I also want to take this time to thank everyone who has commented or followed by little blog. I can't tell you how gratifying it is to know that people feel compelled enough to post a comment or even follow my blog! Creating Sugar Pie has opened my eyes to this whole new global community. Thank you, Michelle xo
