The Car...The Dream Builder...The Legend...

My car....the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. The little knowledge I have of cars can't do it justice. All I know is this:
" With its 16-cylinder four-wheel drive, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 may well be the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times.

Most of the components tucked beneath its hood are ingenious innovations that were formerly only deemed possible by visionaries like Ferdinand Piƫch.

Boasting a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour, the Veyron is unmatched in the super sports category. It offers a total of 1,001 HP, and its ample power reserves even at high speeds are the fabric of dreams for luxury-class limousines: for a constant speed of 250 km/h, the Veyron only needs 270-280 HP. This means that the seven-gear clutch transmission works with a torque of up to 1,250 Newton meters. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) ensures the necessary flexibility and maneuverability at any speed. The Veyron reaches velocities that would literally lift the car off the ground – if it weren’t for its ingenious aerodynamics, which keeps it firmly on the road even at full speed. Adjusting the back spoiler, reducing ground clearance, opening and closing the lids – it all adds to the perfect balance between propulsion and downforce. Such a super sports car may not seem to be brought to a halt easily, but the Veyron’s ceramic brakes slow it down faster than it can accelerate. While it takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, it needs even less time – a mere 2.3 seconds – to come to a standstill from 100 (reference point). To reduce the risk of injuries in accidents, Bugatti had a Formula 1 safety concept adapted for the Veyron. All these technical details combine to make the Veyron a truly exceptional super sports car. -Bugatti Press"

That mean's it cruises at 150 MPH, using only about 250 HP out of a total of 1001....which means it maxes out at around 600-610 MPH
What does it take to own one of these? Only $1.2 million, if you can get your hands on one of the 300 manufactured...... I know I will, how about you?

Happy Valentine's Day!

I almost forgot... >;P
Happy Valentine's Day!

Vosges: one of the most richest, indulgent chocolates I've ever enjoyed. The box came with instructions on how to savor your chocolate! No, Really! It told me to fell the chocolate, smell the chocolate, take a nibble and savor all the flavors in the chocolate. Each chocolate had its own comprehensive ingredient break-down......and the texture...Mmmmm....


I love pretty things.....and luxurious things. Why? Because having pretty and luxurious things means that you've accomplished your goals in order to get them (if your priorities are straight, that is)
What are some of the most beautiful, luxurious and sensual things out there? FOOD! I love love good food. This includes, but is not limited to: Deserts....Mmmm.....nothing better than a rich, gourmet desert.

One of the things I am bound and determined to experience during my travels is the famous LaDuree Macaroon.
With celebrity fans all over the world, it's rich French history spans back into the 19th century. Seasonal flavors, creative packaging and presentation.....delish! (Or I imagine it to be)

What I do...

I'll start by sharing what I do through a series of blogposts that will show you what's out there when it comes to the best of the best in skincare. So here's what I do, and I love it!

First, the essentials. My O-So-Easy to use 3-step system. I used to use Clinique, but this is much more effective, and prevents my adult-acne. Besides that, it smells better (I personally think Clinique's stuff smells like medicine and soap, and has no aromatic qualities at all), and it's packaged better. Artistry definately lives up to its name of prestige!

Then there's my awesome blemish control spot-treatment. Great stuff, without the harsh burn. Twice as effective as me previous off-the-shelf treatment, with long lasting preventative ingredients...
