RUN from email!!

Oh heavens, I hope I’m not the only one bombarded by all the after Christmas sale emails!!! I fear my husband and I have caved not once, but TWICE now. OOPS. On the bright side I am not excited about anything coming out clothing wise in 2015, so hopefully that will cull the urge to shop. Le sigh. I do know I have amassed quite a collection of some very beautiful dresses in 2014, and could probably very well never buy another one!!

Anyway, some outfit recaps, starting with what I wore yesterday:





Cardigan: Kate Spade
Skirt: French Connection
Shoes: Kate Spade
Handbag: Kate Spade

Today we went to chaperone the spending of the kids’ Christmas gift cards (and deliver a cake, more on that below):




Cardigan: JCrew Kids (honestly threw this on because it was right there. Not the best look though)
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Target (kids section!!!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Yesterday I finally connected with a client whom there had been a communication breakdown with a week ago (my phone is holding a voicemail hostage from her!!), and so we were able to finalize her sons birthday cake, for delivery TODAY.

Oh my! So I was up into the wee hours this morning with Winnie and Tigger and Piglet:






If I may say so, not bad for a VERY short turn around!!! So cute, and yes everything is made from sugar.

And with that, I’m wiped out! Hope you are enjoying the weekend after Christmas!!

Until next time,


New Years Eve

Happy New Years Eve! Hard to believe we have about 12 hours left in 2012. I personally am happy to see the end of the year, and am excited for what 2013 will bring!

My outfit today:


Cardigan: Kate Spade
Blouse: Kohls
Skirt: Escada, thrifted
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Light Siam Strassed Flats

I also wore my Kate Spade Tulip coat out this morning:


I adore this coat! It’s got a gorgeous green lining. I didn’t wear them, but I also have hot pink Kate Spade leather gloves, trimmed with crystals. Hey, might as well be stylish while keeping warm! It was 30 degrees out this morning, and it hasn’t gotten much warmer.

Stopped at Target too, all the Christmas is 70% off. It was mainly odds and ends, but I did snag these:


Last year I picked up glass candy canes, so I was excited to find glass candy this year! They only had 3 boxes, but I’m going to sneak into another Target here in a while and see if I can’t grab a few more.

I hope y’all have a wonderful day and evening, please stay safe if you are out tonight! I much prefer to stay home, I haven’t been “out” for New Years Eve in 9 years! We are going to have a Lord of the Rings marathon, and I have apple cider for the children, and a treat of pink bubbly for the adults. I’ll be cooking a huge Asian-inspired meal later, and breaking out the crackers as well. For desserts? The remaining pumpkin pie and all the Christmas candy!

I’d better make some coffee too! *grins*

Thank you to all my followers, and I look forward to an amazing 2013!!

See you next year,
