Merry Christmas from Louisiana…

The Boyfriend and I are spending Christmas with his family in New Orleans.

This morning we opened presents by the tree sipping mimosas.  They lost thier family ornaments in Katrina so the tree was decorated with home made ornaments of photos and ribbon.

Last present under the tree… Barley the puggle

It’s Almost Time…

My adorable friend in LA (who inspired this blog) has one and last time I was in town absolutely fell in love with hers.

I am slowly going deaf due to my loud music consumption but at least these will make me restrain from subjecting The Boyfriend to anymore Florence + The Machine…

It just isn’t Christmas without beauty stocking stuffers and this lash survival kit is at the top of my list.  One of my favorite friends recommended Neulash, I love YSL mascaras and I need new lashes, while Neulash makes my current ones grow, so a refill on my Winks…


I always joke about my champagne consumption around this time of year and these are the perfect accessory for celebrating.


And since this is my wish list, it would’t be complete without a mention of Valentino.  It’s time to start buying for Spring and to get the season started I am positive that I need this adorable pink trim dress.

Every year I always add Valentino to the wish list but haven’t received it yet.

I don’t think Santa is listening…

New Obsession…Rifle Paper Co.


A friend recommended this website and I absolutely love.  I found these adorable note pads for stocking stuffers; I figured they would be cute to have by the phone, etc.   I thought it was funny, the zebra on the note pad is saying ‘get it done’.

I need that little zebra to follow me around.

As I have previously mentioned I sold all of our furniture in a remodeling frenzy that I soon after burned out on so we are currently using stacked coffee table books as a side table.

I guess it’s all about using what you got…

New Orleans Here We Come…

We are going to spend Christmas in New Orleans so I think I need this hat.  I hear it gets cold there.


I have been hinting to The Boyfriend things I might like for Christmas (pink bike with a basket, UrbanEars headphones…) but my friend in LA was telling me about how cute Kate Spade holiday was so I had to check it out.

 I am a sucker for all things Kate Spade (except purses) and everything was absolutely adorable.  I think I found a couple things that might need to make the trip to Louisiana with me.

And these are at the top of my list.  They were listed under the ‘Holiday Gift’ category but there must have been a mistake because these adorable little things are a year round must.

Christmas morning I envision myself sipping a mimosa with my popfizzclink barrette in my hair opening my new YSL poppy wedges.

Oh, and don’t for get the hat…
