Dressing For The Snow

Proof that there are some people in the world who are not afraid to go out in the snow and look fabulous doing it. See more pics of a fashionable snowy day in Vienna here.

Awesome Ottoman

While I'm talking about things I need, I should include one of these ottomans from Pal + Smith. Aren't they awesome?! I would go for the green one with the black and white checkered cushion. I also LOVE the white with the blue floral pattern.

Something I Need

Okay, it's time for me to get one of Dan Golden's inspirational rugs for my house. It'd be like having your own personal life coach right there as you leave the house each day wouldn't it? Or maybe I just need one of his prescription medication inspired rugs.....

House Envy

Today I have been running around trying to get ready for family to come into town. Since my house is an absolute mess (seriously toys in every nook and cranny), I needed to be inspired by what I would like my house to look like. This house done by interior designer Lindsay Bentis is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I don't think I can pick a favorite room.

Perfect Dress

Wouldn't this gift wrap inspired dress by Erin Fetherston be a perfect dress to ring in the new year? Now to find the shoes.....

P.S. Here are my other favorite dress idea's for New Years.


What do you think about the cape trend right now? I think it might be the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe. (Sorry for the technical difficulties earlier)

So after such a wonderful Christmas day, I spent the better half of yesterday in bed with the stomach flu. It's looking like today might be the same. So I'm going to pull the covers back over my head and hope this passes. Have a great day and I'll see you all tomorrow.

Christmas Love

An adorable photo shoot with a couple and their dog. I couldn't help but post. Hope you all had a fabulous day.

See more of this fun shoot here.

The Perfect Place To Spend Christmas

New York (never been at Christmas time)

Luzern, Switzerland (doesn't it look perfectly cozy)

Quebec - I'd LOVE to go to the Winter Carnival as well

Bern Switzerland - because it looks like it's right out of a Dickens book

Of course Paris - seen it in the fall, but not at Christmas

If I had an unlimited amount of money, I think it'd be so much fun to spend Christmas in a different place each year. I've been compiling my bucket list for a while, so here are a few of my top choices, but there were many more....maybe next year.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!! I hope all my blogger friends have a wonderful day filled with loved ones and laughter. I am so grateful to you for all your encouragement and comments. It means more to me than I can say. What was originally supposed to be just a little hobby to keep me sane has turned into something I adore doing and am a bit addicted to actually:) I have already met so many wonderful people and look forward to getting to know you better. Thanks so much for all your inspiration. Love to you all.

Friday Favs: Happy Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is finally here and I am so excited for tomorrow. I am most excited to see the look on my kids faces. So instead of my traditional Friday Favs, here's a little preview of what we will be doing tonight to get ready for Santa. Do you have any fun Christmas Eve traditions?

- Traditional opening of one gift before bed - always comfy pj's
- Getting stockings ready and filling them with goodies
- Wading through a sea of wrapping paper to finish everything up
- Listening to Christmas classics - I love Frank and Bing
- Tucking the kiddos in bed so that Santa can visit
- Leaving milk (strawberry milk in our case) and cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer
- Drinking loads of hot chocolate with peppermint
- Lastly, leaving a cookie sheet full of flour under the fireplace to catch Santa's footprint

Endless Lines

So I didn't get to my afternoon post because I had to go to the DMV. Uuuhhhhgggg! There was supposed to be no wait and so 2 hours later, I was outta there. Oh well I'll have more to post for tomorrow. I now get to go wait in more lines for some last minute shopping. Have a good night everyone. CHRISTMAS EVE IS TOMORROW!!!

Rainy Day Hair

Basic Bun

Messy Bun

Knotted Bun

French Bun

Ballet Bun

Its been raining cats and dogs here for 3 days straight. While I actually like the rain, my hair tends to get bigger and bigger when there's moisture in the air. So, my go to rainy day hair style is a bun. Here are few cute variations. My favorite is the messy bun. Which one do you fancy?
