Paris ... ooh la la!

Personally I find Paris one of the most enjoyable cities to visit. It is easy to spend many hours just dwelling around, "devouring" the sites, visiting the museums and meet the wonderful inhabitants of this historic and still vibrant place. Today I am taking you on a tour through the past of the town that has the Eiffel Tower as one of it's most remarkable buildings and is the source of many romantic dreams:

Of course the other aspect of Paris is the famous red wine! It seems that the French are drinking a lot less red wine every year, but wine is still an inspiration for the artist and no matter what, it will always be part of the atmosphere of Paris. A romantic vintage iPad mini case.

Let's go somewhere fun!

Although the weather would not tell us so (at least in Northern Europe), it is officially spring. And the desire to go on a trip is vibrantly alive and kicking, so today I decided this is a great time to share some luggage tags. Get ready for some adventure!

Luggage tags are available in all sorts of categories and I am featuring some of those. Let's start with the luggage tags that are geared towards romantic travel and are in fact the perfect wedding gifts for a couple going on honeymoon:
Horses & Lace Love Honeymoon Luggage Tag Asian Elephants Honeymoon Luggage Tag

Also very popular are luggage tags in vintage style:

In the fifties and sixties polka dots were very popular and in fact they still are. This is a cute luggage tag ... reminds a bit of sweets, doesn't it? For a sweet journey and happy travels ...

And, finally for today:
the bold and eye-catching artistic luggage tags. Since a lot of bags look the same (or oftentimes ARE the same!) it helps to have a luggage tag that makes your bag stand out in the crowd. So here goes:
Exotic Summer Fractal Flower Luggage Tag Exotic Fractal Adventure Travel Luggage Tag

30 Inspiring Ideas for Home Decoration

Spring is a perfect time to create a fresh and new atmosphere in your home. The finishing touch can be a pillow. Pillows can have a huge impact on the overall energy in your space, so it is important to choose carefully. Do you want to create a warm atmosphere with reds, oranges and yellows? Or is it more a fresh style that you are looking for, with blues? It is also nice to put cute and soft pillows in the childrens' room and create a nice space in which they can play safely. Another approach can be to look at the style and find for yourself if you want a playful and casual style or that you feel better in a more classic and stylish environment. Either way, I have made an effort today to create a selection of the best of a variety of styles for you. Of course you can always find more on Zazzle!
