Downton Abbey Season 4 – “New Photos”

30 Jul

Oh shoot! PBS and Masterpiece released exclusive photos of Downton Season 4. I can’t wait! my favorite show is just around the corner. Well, actually it’s around the corner for the UK viewers, when the season premieres in late September. Us lowly Americans will have to wait until it airs in January 2014 on PBS. Not me! I will find a way to watch it with my UK friends.

How precious is Matthew’s heir?! So sad he won’t be able to watch his son grow up.

The Sweetest Little Things: Valentino, Macarons, & Friends

27 Jul

Life is full of sweet little things. Like this insanely gorgeous ensemble from RED Valentino. A box of delicious macarons. Or kisses from two precious french-canadian girls. Today, I spent the day with my very good friend Ciel, her beautiful and funny sister Chelshey, and two of the most darling little girls I’ve met in a long time. We shopped, ate some yummy Mediterranean food, made a music video at the children’s museum, listened to live music, shopped some more, and laughed a ton! I love my life and sometimes sharing sweet little experiences with amazing people reminds me just how blessed I truly am. Take a moment to notice “the sweetest little things” in your life! À bientôt chéri!

The BEST Handbag Designer on Etsy: Rebyc

22 Jul

I’m a handbag junkie, straight up! Designer handbags are my weakness. I will save all year just to purchase that one bag I’ve been swooning over. Lately, my affections for handbags has gone to a particular designer on Etsy – Rebyc! The brilliant and wonderful Stephany Childers is the talented designer behind these one-of-kind gems! The amazing thing about her bags (besides them being epic cool) they’re eco-friendly. Stephany uses all recycled leather and fabrics to create these masterpieces. Pictures do not do the beauty of her handbags justice. If you’re looking for a unique, impeccable quality, and beautiful handbag, this designer is for you. Her bags are legit! Swoon!

Working Girl Chic

18 Jul

Working Girl Chic! Yep. This look right here is my interpretation of the perfect office ensemble. When I was a young girl, I fantasized about working in New York City and rocking the most fierce outfit I could get my hands on. In my 20’s I finally moved to the Big Apple – only to realize just how different my fantasy was from reality. My first apartment was a good 15 minutes away for the train and I never could get the hang of running down the subway stairs in my stilettos. Some of those subway steps are death traps. Folks pushing and shoving. Not for me. I had to trade out my stilettos for sneakers. I also learned that wearing cute dresses in the tortuous NYC winter was not going to work as well. I use to wear 3 pairs of tight and a pair of long johns underneath my dress. Sometimes, I wouldn’t even remove the long johns when I got to the office. I was hoping one of my unsuspecting co-workers thought I was starting a new fashion trend. Oh well. You win some. You lose some.

What’s your favorite look to wear to the office?
