*I’m not going to take it as a sign for the coming year that I spent the first weekend of that year working. Nope. Instead, I’m taking the woman on this card as an example – and try to relaaaax. The card arrived as a Christmas greeting from Anoushka Matus. Charming, no? Anoushka, by the way, is a hugely talented illustrator, as you can see on her website.

*I also think that 2013 should be the year of leopard print. Ideally worn in the shape of a coat like the one from Stella McCartney’s resort collection. Or this one from Zara. Or the one in picture on the current startpage at The Kooples.

*Who wouldn’t want to live like Claire Cottrell, portrayed this week on Freunde von Freunden? I’ll take all of the flower arrangements, a selection of furniture and the dress of her back, too, please.

*The search for the perfect grey sweatshirt has led me to this one from Cardigan, a brand I discovered on MissMoss. It really is damn near perfect.

*Addicted to Tumblr just a tiny bit at the moment. Like the one from Into the gloss. And from Self Service. And from Shelter. And how about 291. Or Requisites. And, of course, the Petersen Tumblr. As well as, again and again and again, Wearing the pants.

*Apropos: What Dianna Lunt is wearing on Citizen Couture would be a great addition to Wearing the pants. As well as to my wardrobe, ahem.

*Don’t even try to convince me that there’s a better or more charming actress in Hollywood right now than Jessica Chastain. The role as muse in the W portfolio suits her, too. Especially staged by Rineke Dijkstra.

*The more you look at it, the funnier it gets: This picture accompanying the article about meggings (yes, men’s leggings).

P.S. I’m in the middle of putting together a photo book of pictures from Spain for my family. Why can’t I find something a great as the photo books from Artifact Uprising in Germany? Or maybe I could. Any ideas? Tips?

Have a good week!
