Happy New Year!

Year 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit, which, according to the Chinese Zodiac, is supposed to be a year to catch our breathe and calm our nerves. It is considered a timid, wise, cautious and lucky sign. So, to all, I wish you happiness and joy in the new year!

Here are some perfect NYE outfits:


Holidays Outfits

Picking out the perfect outfit for a family party can be tricky. On the one side, you want something comfortable that will allow you to eat to your heart’s content, snooze on the couch and play with the little ones. On the other side, you want to look dressy, stylish and current.

A simple solution: LEGGINGS!

Leggings are comfy, stretchy, cozy and stylish. There are thicker ones for more warmth and embellished ones for more style. They come in a variety of colors and some even look like jeans (aka jeggings).

Once you got the leggings, pair them with one of the following:

Then add a pair of tall boots. Heels, flats…doesn’t matter.

Finish the look with some blingy accessories.


Easy peasy!


Lovely Rooms

Sometimes, no explanation is needed. Enjoy the view and have a great weekend!


For the Kitchen

MoMA is always a great place to find unique gifts. This time, I found some perfect accessories for the kitchen. Not that I spend much time in the kitchen... but when I do (you know, to take food out of the carry-out boxes), it’s nice to be surrounded by pretty things.

Row 1: (1) Tea Canisters, $20 each (2) Bread Bowl, $70
Row 2: (3) Living Lounge Bowl, $130 (4) Apple Jars, $30
Row 3: (5) Zucch Sugar Pourer, $52 (6) Wobble Salt and Pepper Shakers, $38
Row 4: (7) Matryoshka Measuring Cups, $12 (8) Apple Slicer, $40


Empty Frames

Have a big empty wall that needs SOMETHING but nothing that will interfere with the rest of the space?

Get out all of your old picture frames that have been living in your attic for years! All of them. It doesn’t matter if they are different shapes or colors or designs.

Remove the glass and backing (leaving just the frame) and spray paint all of the frames in the same color (I LOVE white, especially if you have a colored wall).

And…hang them up on the wall! There really isn’t a “wrong way” to hang these.

Now you have easily (and inexpensively) added dimension and art to your empty wall!
