On my love list...

Maybe I have mentioned that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is my favorite show EVER (sorry Gossip Girl) and I have been obsessed with Kyle Richards emerald earrings but I assumed that being the fancy lady that she is I assumed they were far too pricey for little ole me but I was wrong!! Thanks to Shalyse (she found them for me) they can be mine or yours!

My new favorite place in the city

It's no secret that I love the Grand America hotel. I was married there. We have Thanksgiving there. I would move right in if I could especially now!! They opened "La Bonne Vie" a little patisserie serving yummy fluffy french macaroons, gelato and other yummy things. It is just the perfect place. Every inch lovely. I died over the window displays and the packaging! So to my 3 loyal readers how about a date there? (I'm talking to you Amanda, ShaLyse and Linsey!)

My little chicks and I had a really great day! I got a facial then picked up my boys we grabbed some lunch, after we returned home we snuggled up on the sofa and watched movies until Midnight! I hope you are somewhere warm with ones you love!

New Year. New wardrobe?

I swore that in the new year I was going to be wise about my money and I really think I have stuck with it so far "investing" in some new clothes. These are my newest obsessions :
Anything leopard by Rebecca Taylor. The last three things I have purchased have been leopard and Rebecca Taylor. She has a way of making them soft and feminine because if done wrong leopard can look harsh and dated.

I'm also in love with black skinny jeans the Joe's visionare high waisted and Citizen Avedon in the star wash made my list of necessary wardrobe staples. On the opposite side of skinny jeans I am in love with the seven Ginger jean. I am saving my new pair for spring because wide leg and wet streets do not mix!!

But the thing on the UPS truck that really makes my heart race are the Vera Wang Lillian flat! Sadly gone are the days if sky high heels for this girl now it is only flats that seem to make the cut!
So tell me what are your 2011 must haves?

Hello there!

It must be coincidence that it had been exactly one month since I last logged in, looked at or even thought about this little blog BUT now that the dreaded holidays are over I can get back to my little slice of the inter web. I am very sad to report that I have zero Christmas or New Years pictures to show due to the fact that the lovely new Nikon camera that I bought for my hubby was stolen at a New Years Eve bash we attended (while in my care I might add) Don't worry since there are no pics I shall describe: I looked stunning, had on a perfect outfit and it was insanely glamorous! So we are back in the everyday (okay maybe my Christmas tree is still up) but lots of new is coming our way: new living room, Henry is going back to school, back on the baby bandwagon- meeting with our Dr at the end of the month, Max is joining his elementary school ski team and getting a new bedroom. That's the one thing that's really great about January even though usually you don't there is this sense of hope that for some reason you can just start over and do the things that would make you better or make your life better so to all the "resolution-ers" out there I wish you so much luck and joy this year!
