Happy Holidays!


Via here

I am taking a vacation from work and from blogging! Unfortunately I am not going anywhere exciting, except to the mountains here to ski and enjoy time with my love. I am excited about polish christmas eve dinner with my folks, and our own christmas dinner on christmas day. And i have got to say I am excited about all that love that is building under the tree!

Hope all your Holidays are lovely, filled with love, warmth and happiness! Thank you to everyone who has been visiting this little blog over 2009. I will see you all on the other side!

Underground House



Amazing underground house! Check it out at Made by Girl

Deer Sweater



I have been dreaming of this graphic deer sweater since I first saw it over a year ago in a local artist boutique. A year later, and I want it that much more. It is actually hand made by a local design company called Granted. I would highly recommend giving them a look, they make cozy and stylish wool creations!

And something for the weekend

I can't wait for it to snow here, which it most likely won't. In any case, I will still proceed this weekend, with getting the office ready for the make over! SO VERY EXCITED! Get a tree and knit knit knit :)


Love this look and the jeans.

A less traditional nativity scene.

Great baby gifts, actually i wish they were made for me.

A New Office




Or rather a new office to me. During this Christmas break I am going to be re-organizing and re-decorating my home office, which frankly is in a pathetic state at this moment. To the point where I can barely hang out in it let alone do work or do some yoga. My main problems:
1. Nothing Matches
2. Furniture is too big and completely useless
3. I have too many crafty hobbies and nothing is organized properly because I have yet to figure out multi functionality for items.

My dear friends from Creative Room will help me in this endeavor. I will try to document my trials and tribulations of this aesthetic and functionality reno. I am not going to put up a photo till I have a before and after. It will be much more exciting this way.

Here are some of my inspirations. (More Inspirations to come!)

Red and Fierce



Don't lie, I know you love Catherine Baba's look. Maybe not everyone's daily grocery store outfit but hell this woman has got a fierce look . I like her bold and drastic pieces all coupled together. In love with the 80s red fur/velvet coat!

Thank you Jak and Jill for taking great fierce photos.

Best part? Look at the commuting outfit. Awesome and versatile or what..I think so.

Red and Strutting



Via Cherry Blossom Girl

This ensemble is so adorable. I especially love the flat boots!
Key ingredients red lips and the the fab red Chanel bag.

That is what my wardrobe has been missing forever: A RED BAG.

I am serious I have not been able to find a nice, sexy and fun red bag. The great thing about this Chanel is that it can be both for nights out and for casual days. Any suggestions?
