No one, and I mean NO ONE does fireworks like Disney!!!! Amazing!

Tuesday morning I was invited to attend a coffee master tasting at a local Starbucks (much needed after the late night at Disney the night before!!!!). It was SO amazing!!!

All that espresso really got me going, Tuesday was insane!! Best part? By the end my dear friend stuffed herself into a bag (we are costuming an event at our church):

20130824-205611.jpg

I bought an amazing dress to wear later this year, I’m super excited about it, especially the shoes I’m working on:

And today? I bought a lampshade:

With that, I shall leave you. I will work on updating more often as I continue to get into the swing of our new schedule.

Until next time,

Still cold!

Mmm, when I was in Hollywood last week we stopped at a lovely little bakery, 12 Centimeter. For French Macarons. Mmmmm. So delish! Even better? The owner was working that evening, and passed over some samples. A must-stop next time I’m in the neighborhood.

What’s left of my 10-piece box ($16.50):

20130112-211823.jpg

I brought home: Lemon, Ice Mint (yummy!!!), Raspberry, Lavender (oh my goodness, it’s amazing!!), and Coffee. The sample we received was Shingo Sea Salt. It was very much like a sweet crew brûlée macaron. A little sweet for my taste, but delicious nonetheless. A lovely little gem located just on the outskirts of Koreantown in Los Angeles.

Today I popped out for a few:

20130112-212206.jpg

Cardigan: Banana Republic
Pants: Banana Republic
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutin flats
Handbag: Kate Spade

It seems I have messed up my hip somehow, I’ve spent a lot of time laying down today in hopes it’s better in the morning. This cold weather + arthritis is not a fun combination! I often forget about my rheumatoid arthritis, but alas, it rears it’s ugly head when I’ve gotten to that point! Oh well. I won’t let it win, I vow to keep dressing cute and I will hobble along in heels as long as possible! I’ll be the lady in the electric cart with 4″ heels on. *grins*

Stay warm out there!

Until next time,

Jules

Milo of the Lollipop Forest

Meant to post this earlier, but I got a little sidetracked today. Remember my organization frenzy last night?

Yeah. It spilled over into my daughter’s room. And Barbie. Like, too much Barbie!!

20120610-195715.jpg

And turn the corner, oh no!!

20120610-195743.jpg

And now it’s clear where my shoe obsession came from. Barbie. Mattel, can you please pay for my therapy? (kidding!!) seriously though, I had NO idea there was this much. And I’ve already gotten some sorted and put away! (note, most of the bits were mine, er are “mine”, and the dolls. I’ve added to her Barbie collection over the years, but 75% of what you see is mine from my teenage years. And I still collect Barbie!!)

And this was how I wanted to dress when I “grew up”

20120610-200035.jpg

I have realized I actually have a black skirt like that, the white jacket, and a dress that is close to the one above.

Anyway. This was supposed to be about Milo of the Lollipop Forest!

20120610-200518.jpg

Isn’t he adorable?? I loved this project!!!

And for moi today? I confess I look like a mom today. So, no damning evidence!! I’ve been organizing and sorting and planning my next pair of strassed shoes. Sooooo excited!

Speaking of, why didn’t Barbie ever have crystal shoes??? I know they made a Louboutin Barbie. And shoes. I’ve never been willing to shell out that much $$ for plastic Barbie shoes! It’s a neat collection though.

Until next time,

Jules


What I’m Wearing

Whew, crazy busy day! My baby “graduated” the big Kindergarten. That was insane.

I ran around in this today

20120604-173453.jpg

The Rundown:
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Strassed Stuart Weitzman heels
Handbag: Black Kate Spade (not pictured)
Necklace: Vintage (I wear this all the time! It was my great grandmother’s)

And the cake I did for the graduation party

Until next time,

Louis Vuitton Cake

I meant to share this yesterday, but due to some issues, it didn’t happen. I ended up instead unwinding with a new strass project last night!! (SO excited about this one!!!)

So, this is very picture heavy. Everything is molded or cast from sugar, the shoe is modeled as a sz 38.5, and I hand painted everything. (sadly the person who ordered it didn’t agree with me on it being fabulous.)

I suppose art is subjective and so not everyone will like it. But I personally think the sugar shoe is wicked cool. But then again, I love shoes!

Probably no outfit shots today, it’s a “stay home and be a bum” kind of day. I’ll probably plant flowers and strass.

New flowers for my front flower beds!

20120527-074136.jpg

And a sneak peek at my new project

Very laid back Memorial Day weekend here! And to those whom I owe an email, I will get back to you, promise!! 🙂

Until next time,

Jules
