Happy New Year...

(via Once Wed)

...Hope you all have a happy night and let it be the start of a fantastic 2011! I may have jinxed myself earlier this week with the declaration that this is the best holiday yet, as I was struck down with a cold that will see me on the couch this new years. So have a champagne for me dear readers and see you in the new year. xx

My Mini Obsession for 2010...

Around this time of year there will be post upon post of top 10's for 2010 - top 10 movies, top 10 albums, or top 10 best dressed of the year.  My Top 10 list is a list of my obsessions for 2010 - the things that I couldn't stop thinking about, or couldn't stop googling or talking about. So here is the list in no particular order (raking obsessions is like having a favourite child, impossible because each one is comes to you at different stages of your life!)

  • Michael C Hall - 2010 saw me declare that Michael C Hall is my favourite TV actor of all time. His performances in Six Feet Under and Dexter cement him as an incredible actor and the way he inhabits his characters. Amazing.
  • Eyebrows - This year saw me finally understand the power of a good brow.  Now eyebrows are the first things I notice on people!
  • Real Estate - Obsessed, angry, lusting - a lot of words capture the feelings of what 2101 was like for real estate. No new home as I write this but I hold hope for 2011...
  • Kate Bosworth - Has continued to up her style anti this year - love her fashion choices, often very simple, elegant and what I like to call "lady like". This is how I would love to dress
  • Bill Cunningham's New York - Stand out documentary of the year. Track it down. Watch it.
  • Blogs - Of course I would become obsessed with blogs - but this year I was drawn to blogs like Frontliners and Design Sponge which showcase people's homes. I have always loved a sticky beak into people houses and these blogs have feed my obsessions very nicely.
  • Gardening - This year saw me buy 3 gardening books AND actually have healthy, growing indoor and outdoor plants. I think my black thumb has gone.
  • Kanye West - What's not to love! Someone who can back up his outlandish behaviour with groundbreaking music. Go get this new album, if only for the song that has the line 'let's have a toast to the douchbags...'
  • Apartment Therapy's Big Book of Small Cool Spaces - Best book of the year. Inspiring interior spaces for those of us in small dwellings.
  • Michelle Williams - an actress who I believe will only get better and better and one that I will be sure to watch in every film she does.  But what really cemented my mini obsession was her recent interview promoting Blue Valentine, where she spoke with such poise, grace and was so composed(and yes I loved the film)
There you have it folks. What were  you into in 2010?

Loving The Holidays...

(via El beso) one of the holidays and it already rocks! Doing some major cleaning - the re-arange furniture, dust the high shelves type of cleaning - and going to see Blue Valentine (so I can indulge in my mini obsession of Michelle Williams). Oh did I mention I had Kanye West's new album cranked up high...ah the holidays...

Finally Found It...

A friend has recently bought her first apartment, and because I can be a little OCD,  I have spent the past two days crawling through the blog world trying to find these images of this wonderful garden balcony to show her.  Isn't it wonderful to see what you can do with small spaces.

When All Is Just Right...

...the colour palate, the table (oh the gorgeous drool worthy table), the sheer curtains that add a sense of grandeur, the pendant lights...

It's been a while since I posted a wedding pic, so I am happy to have finally seen a wedding that is blog worthy. I love the brides headpiece and how fresh and romantic this wedding looks.

These Shoes In My Size Please

(Images via Christian Louboutin)

Today marks the beginning of my birthday weekend. Yes, that's right, I don't just get a brithDAY, I get a whole weekend!
So, because it's my birthday and I'll do what I want to, I chose these STUNNING Christian Louboutin Maralena slingbacks for no real reason except that:
  1. I  L O V E Christian Louboutin (obviously)
  2. Multicolour Strass crystals make me endlessly happy (and I mean deleriously so)
  3. These would be my party shoes of choice if someone would just buy them for me! (Size 38 1/2 if you were  wondering)
And whilst I'm shamelessly entertaining my love of all that glitters - I might just have myself a pair of these Pigalili pumps as well please.

To The Ladies Of 169...

A and K, sorry it's been tough lately, know it will get better, and while it still sucks, I'll be there with you guys, eating chocolate, sharing dumb you tube clips and I might even bust out the some afternoon crazies. x

A Gift Straight From The Heart

(Image via Mine1000)

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...
Lucia knows how to give an amazing present! And I do mean, a-mah-zing.
You know the kind of gift that is so thoughtful and perfect, that you're worried that no matter what you say or how you react, you could never truly express how much you adore it?

Well, I had the extreme pleasure of receiving one of my all time favourite (early) birthday presents today and I have never felt more loved and understood by a friend in my entire life. Quite honestly, I feel so touched I could cry.

There are many things about L that makes me grateful for her friendship and for those of you privileged enough to have her shine her caring, generous, heartfelt spirit in your life, you will understand how I feel.

Thank you Lucia, you genuinely touched my heart x

When Does It Get Better...

So I had a tough 20's and I seriously believed that once I got through them, life would be much easier because I would be more sure of who I was and I'd be more equipped to weather changes in my life.  So I'm struggling to understand why I am still in this place. It's not easy, in fact certain changes are much harder now and I feel more isolated than ever.  Sure my brain knows I'll get through this, knows my life is really blessed and I have some wonderful friends, but how do I get my heart to know these things as well?
