. let it snow .

forever since i was here...
so so many things that have been
exciting and wonderful, and among them,
the very first real snow of the season...
so majestic and white, meant to be enjoyed
in front of a crackling fire and drinking rich 
frothy hot chocolate.


. hello & a few notes .

so so long since i have been here.
quite busy with my most favorite holiday and 
family upon family. an entirely lovely long, long weekend. 
next week it's back to work, with so many wonderful 
things to share, some fabulous gift ideas, as well as a 
recipe or two.....
'till then

. diy * gold goddess .

gold leaf has such a lovely sheen...
and this diy gold leaf "ring" is one of the most simple, yet luxe projects.
perfect for the holiday goddess. love love love!
How to:
 you will need:
one sheet of imitation gold leaf,spirit gum,
foam brush, and tape

 start by cutting gold leaf in half inch strips
tape off area you wish to "golden"

brush on spirit gum to desired area
 press the gold side into the area
repeat until desired coverage is achieved

gold leaf should stay 8-10 hrs
remove with spirit gum remover or rubbing alcohol

ta da!
how lovely, yes?

(all images and entire project from Honestly WTF...
thank you for a fabulous to do!)


. house love * fireside .

as the days grow shorter and the darkness
comes ohhhh so quick... quite possible the most
lovely thing to curb the chill, is a blazing fire.
and of course... a comfy chair fireside with a sumptuous throw.

. monday monday * ready. set. twirl .

a whirlwind since i have been here...
so many things to share, an interesting post
about english tea, some fabulous how-tos,
and many many things that are just bang on fabulous!
have a strikingly wonderful monday... ta ta.


. just pretty * brighten the day .

on a day with so many, many things to do...
and lists to make... and on and on and on...
maybe a simple bundle of flowers to brighten 
the day and just for a moment lose track of time.


. house love * stairway.

recently the conversation of stairs has been the debate...
living in an old home with a pretty oak
stairway most of my childhood, and our country house
with a unique double stairway,i see the stairs as
an opportunity to have a grand moment in ones home...
curved or straight?
open or closed?
wood or iron?
runner or not?


. house love * a bath to live in .

glamorous fire place, cozy wing back chair,
soft lighting, artwork to linger over, and plenty of
ambiance... plus a stately tub in the middle.
a bath to loose yourself in...



. the frost .

as the first frost sparkles across the grass,
in a moment i think of nothing but fur, crackling fires,
warm cozy blankets,delicious simmering soup, and
the softest of cashmere.
hello fall... i missed you, my love!

. color inspiration * a pop of color .

all one really needs is a pop of color
to make neutrals really sing...

. all hallows eve .

a day of masks and fantasy,
of gold and gilt,
and tricks and sweets...
happy halloween!

one of those days when a girl
needs a bit of sparkle...

. you need this... * sea salt & happiness .

 always an advocate and searching for anything that can enrich ones life.
aromatherapy is magical and pampering... having the ability to enhance 
your mood and change how you feel...
Awaken Aromassentials by Arbonne is absolutely transforming!
the Awaken essential oil blend is composed of lemon for vitality and coriander 
for happiness, with key ingredients of avocado, sweet almond oils, clover, ginseng,
birch extracts, orchid extracts, green tea oils, and sunflower oils. 
make your morning routine a bit more luxurious and blissful...

my ABSOLUTE favorite item is the Awaken sea salt scrub... it is entirely lovely! 
sea salt acts as a natural exfoliate to slough away dead skin cells,
revealing healthy, brighter, and silky skin. but the real delight is the 
intoxicating "wake you up" scent that envelopes your senses.
and finally the secret weapon... it is the most luxurious shaving tool
on the planet, this is the only "cream" i now use.
simply shave after you rinse off salt and the essential oils act
as your shaving cream. leaving the most silky soft, perfectly smooth skin.
beside all the benefits of coming from a health & wellness company like Arbonne,
any product that boasts vitality and happiness...and delivers!
is a must have... and a true luxury in my book!

. monday monday * fall away... .

hello monday...
and seems as if forever since i have been here,
a very long and busy week last week.  looking forward to
the brisk and crisp days that lay ahead...
wishing you a smashing start too.


. beep beep .

a million and one things to do today...
but somehow dreaming of shopping and only chanel on my mind.


. just pretty * gallant in white .

forlorn and bare... yet so full of secrets and still
stands gallant without any furniture.
exactly the reason i love old houses and vintage architecture.
they have soul... and when you strip everything 
away the room remains strikingly beautiful.
happy wednesday.
