Weekend Reading

Pink Peonies, photo by Carin Olsson of Paris in Four Months I've spent these days after Christmas trying to wind down and watching hundreds of movies. But that's what you should do during days like these, no? Tomorrow I have a very exciting shoot planned with this gorgeous lady so I better keep the Harry Potter movies to a minimum this evening. Although I have a feeling that will be hard... I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas!

•   When the year is coming to an end people love to sum up the year that's gone by – and I'm no different. That's why I can't get enough of all of these lists! Which were the biggest modeling moments you might wonder? And Style.com asks you to name "the look of the year". •   If lists to sum up the year in fashion isn't your cup of tea perhaps this recipe by Dessert for Breakfast might be a better fit. Banana and hazelnut pancakes anyone? I'm not the biggest banana fan but this looks yummy. •   Pinterest – a great source for inspiration and a place to gather all your wants and needs. I mean, how perfect aren't these for New Year's Eve? •   By the end of next week I'm leaving for Florence (yay! I promise to tell you more about it really soon) and now I'd love to hear about your tips for this Italian gem if you've ever been before. Lay it on me, I'd love to know all about it!
