I wish my camera could capture the way the snow glistens on the streets, like millions of tiny diamonds, illuminated by the city lights.
Or how whimsical those weightless diamonds look when the wind lifts them up and wisps them across the land, at times swirling dangerously, yet marvelously up, up, up, caressing the skyscrapers, limiting human visibility.
A beautiful yet temerarious wonder of nature.

Yes. I'm a winter baby.

Golden Globes '15

2015 has come in with a bang in terms of fashion. The Golden Globes red carpet boasted amazingly dressed celebrities, from the incomparable Jennifer Lopez to the dashing couple, George Clooney and wife Amal Alamuddin who donned white elbow-length gloves.

Check out my Best Dressed of the night (not easy to choose just a few!) below:
Trend alert- Razzle, dazzle sparkle, sparkle!

Stay gorgeous!

Hey Diddle Diddle!

First post of the new year! Yay!

Award season is here and I’m oh so very excited about it- double yay! I will admit sometimes I could care less about the actual show as the red carpet is my prerogative but I indulge in both whenever I can; gives me something to talk with certain people about the following the day.

The first show of the season was the People’s Choice Awards, which occurred Tuesday, January 7th. I did not get a chance to see the show but special congratulations to Betty White who won the award for Favorite TV Icon.

Here are my favorite red carpet looks of the night:
Disclaimer:  Images are not mine, though I did make them into a collage for my readers.

Best Female-
Katharine McPhee (Best, best dressed); Stana Katic; Sarah Hyland (maybe it’s the shoes…?); Ginnifer Goodwin; Amy Adams should LIVE in blue- it makes her eye pop; Giuliana Rancic. Although she was in Elie Saab, a favorite of mine, Ellen Pompeo and Ginnifer Goodwin fell short because their frocks were just too long. Ladies, call a tailor next time.

Best Male- 
Ben Aflec & Chris Evans

Miles Brown & Marsai Martin

Eloise at Christmastime

I am a city child… although I don’t live at the Plaza. However, one of my favorite little fictional munchkins does. If you don’t know who she is, her name is Eloise and she’s six years old. She lives in the heart of NYC with her Nanny, dog “Weenie” and pet turtle “Skipperdee.” One can only dream of such a fabulous life at such a young age!

Inspired by the book series turned movie, Eloise at Christmastime (2003), here are a few looks to recreate this holiday season. Choose any of the below and you will look, as Eloise would say, rawther amazing.

Both (Option)- Tights

Striped Pink Pajama Set- Victoria's Secret
1. Fireside Long Jane Pajama
2. The Cotton Mayfair Pajama
3. The Afterhours Satin Pajama

“I always say what’s in my mind. It makes everything so much easier.”

Freakin' Weekend

Happiness is having too many of your family members crammed into a small space but they're all making the best of it, stealing each others' seats, laughing uncontrollably at corny jokes and hugging each other randomly, dancing the night away, forgetting the troubles of yesterday...

#family #weekend #fun #love #live #life #blessed #God #thankyou

Happy Weekend!

Etsy Etsy Etsy baby!

A woman can have too clothes but too many accessories? Nahhhh! Not in my opinion anyway! Accessories allow you to reinvent your style with the clothing you've had forever. And one of my favorite places to shop for unique and awesome accessories is at Etsy. There is a plethora of merchandise to choose from. Virtually anything and everything you can think of! If you haven't already, check them out! Etsy

I purchased a few gifts for loved ones this year's Christmas from Etsy. I can’t divulge what I bought just yet but I will say I am 1000% satisfied with my purchases!
Hand stamped, crafted jewelry and other gifts. Completely customizable! 

Although this shop is currently out of stock, I am satisfied with my purchase. 
Handmade personalized engraved cutting boards and wallets. 

Thank you!
