Two designers Gilles & Boissier live in this very stylish apartment in Paris….I love how they mixed classic and contemporary elements together and how everything seems to just work together!!!. They didn’t stop at mixing contemporary and classic styles but they even mixed designer’s items with stuff found at flea markets…. By doing so they made the apartment feel so personal…. so them!!!
It’s not Christmas without gifts… or Charlie Brown!!!
Samantha Clause gets me every time! lol
There is something truly magical about Christmas stories… My kids just love reading them over and over again…. This story, in particular, is a favorite …. maybe because they are Dr.Suess fans or maybe because they just love the movie so much!!!…who knows!!!
Dr. Suess writes a whimsical Christmas tale in his word-play style that everyone always enjoys…..The Grinch hates Christmas and wants to stop it from coming. So he forms a devious plan: to impersonate Santa Claus and steal Christmas presents. But to his amazement, he did not stop Christmas from coming!….. He realizes something new. That maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. That maybe Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!
Winter always makes me think of fur… well that and hot chocolate of course!!! But mostly fur!!! 😉
And whenever I think of fur I think of Anna Wintour because let me tell you, no one does winter chic better than Wintour!… here are my favorites throughout the years (notice the 1st and last pictures are of the same fur coat… I had to put it twice because it looked so good on her!)
I am in love with the white painted brick, the white beams, and the black floors…. I mean what a combination right?. A lot of people may see a black and white combination as cold and maybe a bit boring but I think that in this setting it makes perfect sense because it provides a blank canvas for art… It allows the art as well as the furnishings to breath and stands out…. Love it!
‘Tis the season for decorating Christmas trees!… and I am sure that everyone is done decorating their tree by now….But I thought I would share with you some of the ornaments that I have been eyeing!!!
A lot of people consider Jackie O as their style icon… but for me, her younger sister Lee has always been one of my style icons!!! I always felt that she had a more modern and yet classy approach to fashion… Lee taught me that modern doesn’t always have to be trendy!!! This is One of my favorite photos of her…. She is walking in New York City on October 15, 1972….No one can do timeless and modern as good as her!
Ok, this isn’t technically a book…. But I thought it might be useful for parents like me to know about it!!!….This Pro/Con Journal is supposed to be a great tool for introducing the concept to kids. It says that it could enable them to make right choices!!!…hmmm let’s see…. I’m ordering a few copies right now… and I’m hoping that the journal is everything it says it is!!! 😉
