thank you, good bye and welcome

Thank you 2009 for being so good to my family. I must admit I'm eager to wish you good bye and welcome 2010. The next year promises to be the best one yet for me and I can't wait! Thanks to all my readers and I'm excited to see what we have in store discover together in the new year. A safe, happy, and healthy evening to you all.

in love

In love with my newly acquired toy. Now I just can't wait till baby gets here and the flowers bloom again. I've got some moments to capture! Anyone who is in the market for a nice user friendly camera I definitely recommend this one (Nikon D3000).

So the only thing I feel is absolutely amazing about celebrating New Years is the Champagne. Beer has never been my thing, wine red or white often leaves me with a headache but Champagne seems to possess just the right amount of "kick" to suit me. Also it's the one time a year you can walk around sipping from one of those cute little mini bottles of Champagne at a party and no thinks any less of you as a lady. It's the greatest! Sadly this year I will have to sit out due to the babio in the belly, but that's OK. I'm sure you all will have enough fun for me too! In the meantime I will continue to clean up the aftermath that Christmas left behind and begin my own countdown to baby- only 46 days to go!

layla grayce

Two words- Layla Grayce. Maybe I'm just late to the party but I just recently discovered this great website! I swear it's got my name written all over it. Beds, blankets, lamps, necklaces, rugs, jammies, coasters they have it all. Behold some of their excellent finds below!

easy big fat eyelashes

Were you unaware like me that your hairdryer is helpful for things other than drying your hair?

Using your hairdryer on high heat, hit your eyelash curler for about 5 seconds. Touch the metal curler to your inner wrist to make sure it's not too hot and then proceed to curl your eyelashes as usual. I tried this neat little trick this morning and the results were pretty dramatic- not that thats me below mind you but you get the idea ; ). Happy curling!

gift wrap al la martha

Martha is the master you know why? Because her wrapping techniques are gorgeous but they're also so simple. Buttons, yarn, ribbon, maybe a stamp or two and viola! The trick is to just decide on one theme for the season and stick with it. Go shopping for only the things you need for that theme and then after all of your gifts are bought set up an assembly line and knock it all out at once. Oh and crank up the Christmas music (Michael Buble if it's my house), grab a cup of coco and have a jolly ol' time. Now get to it!

this and that please

Right this second I'd like some of this.

While curled up with this.

The pretty blanket can be found at Pure Home Style.
