Ohh Philip!

During an official meeting with a foundation to protect turtle doves in Anguilla in 1965, Prince Philip said: “Cats kill far more birds than men. Why don’t you have a slogan: ‘Kill a cat and save a bird?’”


Urban Ears

Headphones in Navy

(Dora) I’ve had my Urbanears for about 2 years now (yes before they were popular). Honestly they were the best headphone I had ever had. Impeccable sound and a great look. But all good things come to an end. Two weeks ago they started freaking out whenever I hooked them up to my blackberry. I couldn’t hear a thing. My headphones were keeping me from my Gaga!!
So I bought some cheapo replacements to keep me going. My Urbanears were temporarily shelved until today. But when I took them they wouldn't work! I tried everything...
So now, I’m on the hunt for a new pair! I just don’t know which colour to choose, HELP! 


Be Mine!

(Dora) I spotted these shoes in Dune when we were emptying out my uni flat. It was love at first glance. I ran into the shop like a manic, I just had to try them on. They fit like a dream, look like a dream but are real! I'm piling up way too many suede shoes, but oh well.
I think I'd swap the laces for a deep red during the winter...

(Dora) Today we were out and about in Geneva checking out the sales. After a quick lunch – my ceasar salad was delicious – we browsed a couple of shops. But alas, nothing was bought.
The weather was lovely. Leya ended the day with a gelato – pics to come, any excuse for gelatos.
My outfit was casual and comfortable. But I have to admit, wearing a playsuit when you know you’re going to try on clothes is a mistake! My green flats are what I like to call posh willies. They’re made out of plastic! They were on my ‘Be Mine’ list for years until I found them in Dubai.

(Leya) My lunch was a focaccia, which I thought was a pizza but turns out it’s just a fancy rip off. Anyway, after attempting to finish the thing (I gave up after two pieces), we tried to figure out what to do with the leftovers. I thought about giving it to the girls sat next to us but Dora said that would be weird. We tried to find a homeless person to give it to (THERE ARE NONE).So I ended up leaving it in front of an apartment building.
I was wearing shorts and a top which I had bought on my last shopping trip (sales). But the shorts were a bit big so I have to use safety pins. It’s worth it since I’ve been looking for a pair with that design for quite some time.
TMI: I had the biggest wedgie ever!



Dress 1.2.3 Paris
Sunglasses Vans

(Dora) This dress has fed my coral addiction. Leya keeps saying it’s orange but you can blatantly see that it’s CORAL. It flows in the most elegant way and I just love it!
1.2.3 may be a shop for the mature but I always find my little gems. Now I just need a soirĂ©e I can wear this to…

There will be more buys to come as the sales have only just begun!


Top Esprit
Shorts Comptoir Des Cotonniers
Boots A Boutique in Geneva
Belt Vintage (for my mama)

(Leya)My mum was desperately trying to make me buy shorts for summer. It’s hard to find ones we both like (she thinks my shorts are too short), we stumbled across this pair in the sale section  of Comptoir Des Cotonniers as Dora was looking for a top she saw online.
Their material is very light (linen).
(Dora)They’re so cute; they’d be perfect for a safari!



Ohh Philip!

(Dora) I'm in love with Prince Philip - he's married to the Queen of England - and his ridiculous out of place remarks! Ohh Phlilp! posts will hopefully brighten up your day. So here goes:

To the President of Nigeria, who was wearing a traditional dress: "You look like you're ready for bed".
