This is he car I'm buying with my new fat paycheck!
(Correction, this the care I would have liked to buy, if I had a fat paycheck)

Left the girls at the house in the countryside and went back to town.
(Cause I gotta work, damn it..)
The sun doesn't come up until 9 am this time of year, but when it does, this is how beautiful it is.
I almost broke my neck on the dock when I took the shot, first frost set in during the night.
Pretty, but deadly.

I've done some research about the Velviona perfume from Helmut Lang.
Ever since I used the last drops, I've scoured the planet to find it again.
It was a limited edition of 500 bottles and it's nowhere to be found. (yes, I've tried Ebay..)

Here's the magic, apparently, Malin & goetz have made a similar scent called Synthetic Musk.
It's based on the same ingridient from Givaudan (a synthetic monocyclic musk called "Velvione") as Velviona.
Hence the name, Mr Lang made it as a tribute Givaudan.
(Anyone who makes a tribute to a specific series of molecules deserves an award by the way)

So, if you're looking for that newborn-baby scent with some animalic/intellectual kickass basenotes, your search is over.
I think, I haven't tried it yet, I'll know mid January after my NYC-trip.

If you don't smell good, you don't look good.

Long time no see!
Who the hell am I talking to?
Nobody reads this except for my dear friend Eric apparently, who's taunting comments are actually
fun, keep it up! (Even though I deleted most of them)
Eric makes his livelihood as an overpaid controller, doing nothing really.

Since he gets paid more than I ever will, I feel a strong urge to get back at him in some way.
The only way I can do this is to tell him that I just booked trips to NYC, Florens, London, Paris and Berlin.
And yes, I will stay at nice hotels, take it rather easy, AND fly business class.
(Upgraded on points, but anyway)

That said, this is my oldest daughter, Klara. She has finally started to accept wearing navy.
Perhaps in a couple of years she will start wearing black as well.
Black was not a very prominent color when we did our fashion show for AW-07 this week and presented the collection for people representing 70 countries.
It felt like giving birth in a way.
Not that I know what it feels like, but it was nice when it was over.
