Gift Guide #5 A Dangerous Deal!

I just got this deal in my email and I have to share it with you! Fruit & Flour, a pie bakery in Echo Park, Ca. makes these delicious alcohol infused pies (and non-infused) flavours like Guinness Chocolate, Bourbon Pecan and Coffee Kahlua Cream Pie. You have got to be kidding me!!! The deal that is going right now is either get one pie with free delivery (in the LA metro area) for $20 OR join the pie-a-month club for $99. $99 and I could have a delicious pie at my door every month?! That sounds completely dangerous and yet I could finish the year with more new friends than I would know what to do with.

Busy busy and yet lazy lazy

I am done with work now. No more weddings this year. No travel planned. Just at home getting ready for baby and the holidays. Sounds so perfect. Sounds like a dream come true. Only thing is I am stuck in that chilly weather no motivation to even shower mode. I also think of this time as my early 20's.
I am getting stuff done at home and prepping to get our nursery all set up. Today Potsch and I are heading to check out paint chips! It would be amazing to have paint from Farrow & Ball. What a way to start my kid off! With gorgeous high class color surrounding her. But that may be for a different time in a different house. Today will check out some more budget friendly options.
This is my nursery inspiration. How gorgeous is this tweed?! from here.

I will also be cooking up a storm! Not for Thankgiving even but for my friends who just had their first baby on Monday. I will be bombarding them with deliciousness to help them stay full and healthy while they spend every waking moment staring at this miracle they made. I'll be sure and take some photos and maybe give you a couple recipes?

This is a sort of random update post. I just wanted you to know I am thinking about you.

What to Fix?

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Can you believe it? I still have my party hat on from New Years 2010. With Thanksgiving comes family, fun, naps and lots of delicious food. Sometimes I like having the left overs even more than the first meal but that may just be cause I am blessed with one of the best Chef's around as my mom, Show Food Chef's Cathy.
If you are looking to livin' up your annual menu or just want some food porn to get you through the day this is the place. Be sure to check out this Thanksgiving post cause there is a photo of me hiding in there among all the delicious recipe links.

Cannot stop Laughing

Oh man how I want these weird little Christmas ornaments. I showed them to Potsch who was not thrilled but I could not stop laughing. They are brilliant. Ha! So Brilliant. They have dogs and Santa Claus too. Check out Old World Primitives.So amazing. I can't take it!

Gift Guide #5 frame it

Maybe it cause I'm havin' a baby and decorating a nursery is always on my mind or maybe it's cause I love a good print and the more personal the better but either way this poster customizable with little heart shaped stickers from My Roots Collection is the best. I say it is a perfect gift for the family. I bet it would make for a fun dinner party activity as well. That way every day you see it hanging there you are reminded just how surrounded by love you are.

Tunes on Tuesday - Everything's Cupcakes

This is dedicated to my friends with baby's growing in their bellies. It was sent to me with the explanation that when it was heard while not pregnant - it was good. When it was heard while pregnant - it was life altering and caused a 15 min. tear parade.
Ah, life changes. So lovely.
here is to you ladies and the men that support us. May our children cause our imaginations to blow up in blossoms and cupcakes everywhere.

The final week in the elevator

I am done with work. I am sitting at a coffee shop after taking a long long walk and trying to feel relaxed and slowly trying to let go of the stress.
It seemed only natural to complete the final week with a week in the elevator post. Of course I didn't think of it until Tuesday so here is most of the week. I am 25 weeks pregnant! Now that I have no job I need to figure out a reason to get dressed in something beyond work out clothes. I like being a cute stylish preggar, if I may say so about myself. So give me some time to come up with a new style post idea. I've got to milk this "tight clothes big belly" thing as much as I can.
lord knows I got some time on my hands now.

Gift Guide #4 stay warm

I love the style and warmth of these great cowl neck scarves from Stitch Rabbit. Hand made and all cool. They are also making me want to take up knitting.

I could disappear in that color.

Love this detail of the tail. And her hair cut is pretty rad.

Gift guide #3 who doesn't need this?

I was just saying the other day how I never have my photos printed anymore and it makes me sad. I scroll through my iphone and ipad and have a good time zooming in but sometimes I want to send my granny some shots or put a few on my fridge. I also do a lot of shopping/design research and snap shots about town. It would great to be able to print those out and make a proper idea board. Well, consider your prayers answered...if your prayers were the same as mine.
The iPhone Photo Printer! Also works with ipods and with a usb attachment works with Androids and ipads. The price is $160 and comes with your first load of crystal ink paper. The replacements are only $24.

Gift guide #2 keep it safe and stylish

Create an iphone case from your instagram photos. So cool!!! And only $35. This is neat cause you could use shots you already have, shots they have or you could shoot something all new knowing that is what you're gonna make with it! A good price with a touch of DIY. Who wouldn't give you a hug and a thank you for that?

Hucklebones. I can see clearly now.

Everyday I spend a little to a lot of time dreaming about my little girl. Who will she be? What will she dream about? And lots of times, what will she wear?
I was a very lucky girl growing up. Of course I did not know to what extent until I was faced with making my choices. Now as I dream and shop for my someday baby girl I remember my mom dressing me in fashions from France and the hottest trends she had read about in Vogue. I had edgy cool hair cuts all because of her. She taught me to play with my clothes and be inventive. She would design and sew my halloween costumes from scratch from Marilyn Monroe to a fuzzy Ewok. My love for clothes, textures, styles and trends all come from her. So, you can see I have a lot to pass on to this little girl and yet at the same time be just as patient as my mom was with me when this little girl has her own inventions and isn't interested in mine.

But until she can dress herself I may just be dressing her in Hucklebones from London.

Gift time is approaching... gift guide #1 2011

I like to internet shop. I love to internet window shop. And I adore sharing my finds. The Holidays are fast approaching. So, I figured why wait? Let's talk gifts now. Better to be prepared and get that great tear jerking gift than to tell some one what you wanted to get them but ran out of time. No one likes that gift. Cause it really just feels like you didn't make any time or thought for them. Boo. So, here you go. Gift idea help.

Who doesn't like a nice piece of jewelry? Can change up any outfit and illicit compliments the second you walk in the room. So really you are giving the gift of inside glow and smiles along with your gorgeous Palomarie piece. Sounds like a nice gift for yourself too.
