What To Wear: New Year's Eve 2011

Looking for a cute way to ring in the new year? Why not try a black lace dress, with some adorable nude heels. The strap is both a cute update, and a way to make sure they stay on your feet all night!

Headed to Maui!

Hi All, I'm just getting my stuff together for my trip to Hawaii! 
I'll be ringing in the new year on the island, and while I'm there I'm hoping I'll be attempting surfing (probably a big fail!), snorkling, sleeping, and reading! Oh, and eating. Obvs. (Hello seafood and fruit!) I'm trying to set up a few posts to keep you entertained while I'm gone, but they may be light (depending on how long packing takes.)Ok, back to packing, and cold fighting, and running around getting last minute things. (And a yoga class?)

Boxing Day Wrap Up

Happy Boxing Day!

Did everyone have a Christmas full with family and friends and food and love? (And gifts?) I know I did! (Also with tylenol and tea and vitamins trying to make myself feel better with this horrible cold I have.)
I was spoiled with a new purse, a new tea kettle, a bit of makeup, two MAC gift certificates, candles, yoga class passes, and some new yoga wear! Can't wait to try it all out in the new year! It's going to be a stretchy, caffineated, pretty year!

Judy Garland

Merry Christmas Eve! 
Tonight the dinner will be Tourtière (French Canadian tradition), the candles will be lit, and the wine will be drunk, all in anticipation for CHRISTMAS! I will finish wrapping, do some baking (and some laundry), and then head over for family time. I can't wait! (Even though the big day is tomorrow, today is all lead up, which I like!)

Sparkling Sangria

Too many parties? Today after yoga I started to feel like I was hit by a truck. I'm not sure if it's eating out every day, or drinking every night, or pushing myself a little too hard to work out, but my body is feeling it, and it ain't feeling good. So tonight I'm staying home, watching home alone, and catching up on my blogs, pinterest, and email. (And planning for my trip to Hawaii). I hope you all are making the most of the festive season, and if you're not feeling well like me, the doctor boy recommends vitamin c and vitamin d. (And I recommend Cold FX, but he doesn't belive in it... but I think it works!)

Yellow Fever

I mean that title in a totally NON-racist way. I'm just saying that since today is the longest day of the year, I'm feeling the heat for the bright, sunny shade YELLOW! Good thing I'll be heading off of a tropical vacation after Christmas! Below are some yellow delights which have set my heart aflutter!

Cuisinart Perfectemp Cordless Kettle

I was over at my mother's for Sunday dinner, and she introduced me to her new kettle. And I'm in love. Not only does this fulfill my kettle requirements (not plastic, is removable from it's base) but it actually allows you to boil water at different temperatures depending on what type of tea you are making! How fantastic is that! Do you have a tea lover in your life? This would make a great gift!

(And if anyone reading this lives in or near Toronto, Kitchen Stuff Plus has the cheapest price I've found. Cheaper than Crate and Barrel's sale price!)

Christmas Wreaths

Christmas time is here at last! I'm finally home from my 5 cities in 3 provinces in 7 days trip! Now that I'm home I'm very excited to deck my new apartment out in a little bit of holiday finery. Tonight I'm cooking up a seafood stew, and hope to put the finishing touches on my holiday pennant garland. I'm also thinking that the apartment needs a wreath. I love the look of these wreaths from Eco Chic NYC. Can't wait to have the smell of pine in my apartment!

Levity Monica Cheetah Flat

Newest member to my shoe collection
Thank you DSW
Super blister inducing at this point, but I'm think once I wear them in they will be real winners in the shoe department!
