Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

I'm taking the rest of the year off from blogging.  I need a break, time to regroup, time to be inspired, time to have fun with family and friends, and of course time to just have one less thing on my plate during this busy time.  So I will say goodbye until 2012 (which is only 3 weeks away - eek).  I hope every single one of you has a wonderful rest of the year.  See you on the flip side!

My Five - Miu Miu Spring 2012

A collection with lots of prints and lots of lace.  Some of it felt a bit like big sis Prada's Spring Collection (mostly the accessories).  It's not my favorite Miu Miu collection I've ever seen, but here are some highlights.

What I Wore Wednesday

I'm joining up with The Pleated Poppy again for WIWW.

First, I must apologize for my crazed hair, I cannot for the life of me find a stylist in my town who can cut my hair.  I got spoiled by living in NYC, I got the best haircuts of my life there (of course I paid some serious cashola, but it was worth it to have lovely hair).  Oh well, enough of my hair rant and on with the outfits!
Sweater - Michael Kors (via sample sale)
Tank - Target
Jeans - Gap (thrifted)
Shoes - Target
Necklaces - pink sparkly one (giveaway win) and brown one made by my Mom

Top - LAMB
Sweater - Bebe
Pants - Isaac Mizrahi for Target
Shoes - Toms

Go over and check out what everyone else is wearing here.

Also I've posted my new-to-me recipe of the week over at the Facebook page - it's a super easy and yummy one!
Have a great Wednesday!

Color Inspiration - Multicolor Goodness

Maybe it's because I know the greys of Winter are on the horizon, but I'm craving bright, happy, fun color combinations right now.  Here are a few images for inspiration:

My Five - Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2012

Be still my beating heart, this was a lovely collection with fab, muted color combos that work for me (especially for Spring) and the shoes!  Here are my picks (with plenty of details):
Love the print!



Sort of has a Parisian Ralph Lauren feel, no?

Friend Friday - Christmas Wish List

I'm joining together with Katy over at Modly Chic again for FBFF!  Today's FBFF's topic is what's on our Christmas Lists.  Well, I always have "want" lists a mile long for any/every holiday/occasion, however this year is a little different.  I've already gotten my Christmas present. It actually was a combo Birthday/Christmas/Anniversary present from my sweet hubby - an iPad!  Now this was huge for me, since my husband and I haven't exchanged any present for any occasion for a couple of years now.

I'm in love with this sweet little gadget (that has made commenting, reading and creating so much easier)!  I got the white one and bought Apple's smart cover in orange:

Along with a clear Belkin back shield compatible with the smart cover.

There are a lot of cute iPad covers out there - but I didn't want one that zipped open, that I had to pull the gadget in and out of (too much trouble and there's the added threat of dropping and zipper scratching), and I didn't want some generic ugly case.  I wanted something that stayed as true to how you would use it as possible, with little to no added bulk/weight.  So I highly recommend this combination.  The smart cover turns it on and off (hibernates it) upon opening and closing and the back cover protects it from scratching and impact.  The only issue now is that I'm now wanting an iPhone to match- lol!


Anyway, sorry for my lack of a proper list, but that's how things go right now.  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I've got to get our Christmas cards ready to mail out and I checked this book out of the library today to peruse for new recipes!  I'll let you know if I find any good (easy) ones.

Make sure you pop over to Modly Chic and check out everyone else's proper wish lists :o)  See you Monday!

My Five - BCBG Spring 2012

This collection was chock full of flowy dresses - maybe too chock full - would have liked to see some additional silhouettes.  Had a very sporty feel with the colors, but was balanced out with gorgeous embroideries.

Color Inspiration - Pink and Orange

I'm currently crushing on the colors pink and orange.  You probably have already figured this out if you have clicked over to my blog's home page lately (if you read this only in Google Reader, then click over really fast and you'll see what I mean).  When paired up, they are just so vibrant, happy, and energizing.  Here are some examples of what I mean.  What do you think, are you a fan of this combination?
