Comatose

I ate stuffing and mashed potatoes four days in a row. Hence, I am the opposite of sexy, which I think is frumpy right? I long for water and cardio.

I’m still comatose from the long Thanksgiving weekend, so feast your eyes on these lovely fall photos that have me craving a cozy photo shoot with my man.

The Oversized Sock

One of my favorite traditions at Christmas time is the stocking – I like stuffing them, opening them and watching others unveil the endless mini gifts from their oversized sock….

I would be a happy partner, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, or friend if I were to receive any of these gifts in my stocking this year. I also love books, stationary, Licorice Allsorts and patterned socks. You listening family?

As the saying goes ‘good things come in small packages’…..

Happy 5 days till Christmas!

Putting On The Glitz

First off, I hope everyone stays bundled up for their winter party hopping over the next few weekends/weeks. Second, I hope you take the time to put on a little glitz! This time of year it’s okay to be overdone anytime you walk into a room, after all, you probably just came from a holiday soiree or are on route to the next one! (or at least that’s what you could say?)

Find your perfect shade of red lipstick and pair it with cat eyes and an Adele style teased chignon, or try sleek waves and a dramatic side part with one side tucked behind your ear. Pull out your chandelier earrings, stick something in your hair, wear anything sequin, go with a cocktail  party dress or whatever you have that’s fur and lace – and just go with it. Have a ball, make yourself feel glitzy and if anyone has something to say about it tell them to ‘fa la la la’ themselves!

Lace…

Red Lips…

Side Part…

Fur….

Sequins…

Happy weekend everyone. Keep it real festive!

Party Hopping

The next 10 days of my life will go something like this….

  1. Work
  2. Meeting
  3. Work Christmas Party
  4. Holiday Party
  5. Christmas Shopping
  6. Work
  7. Skating Party
  8. Open House Holiday Party
  9. Friends holiday Dinner (aka party)
  10. Holiday Party

If you answered ‘party’ yes to more than 5 questions you are a experiencing Party Hopping* and have a serious holiday coma coming your way!

In between all of the festivities I have to dash between stores to pick up last-minute things, finish up my gift wrapping, bake dozens of authentic Austrian confectionery, write cards, drop off client gifts, and find the time for beauty sleep. You can call me Miss Claus Jr.

 

 

This will be me Dec 26th….

Frost Yourself…..

Fur, lace, feathers, studs or jewels. I’ll take anyone of the previous mentioned materials and sprinkle them on my head. I call it frosting myself…

 

 

Can I please have those major ear muffs for the cold days ahead…..

And that little lace vail number could be perfect for NYE?… (Christmas hasn’t even passes and I’m already thinking New Years outfit, typical)

Find a way to frost yourself this weekend.

Happy Friday

‘Hey There Santa’

‘Yo Santa….If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working really hard at my career, my blog, writing, freelancing??… so maybe you could slip a little something nice under the tree? If red souls or Jimmy Choos are out of your price range I’d settle for cashmere anything? Or a Rudsak jacket with fur? Just sayin’.

Last week I was on set with the talented and lovely Danielle Bourjeaurd styling her new Christmas video ‘Hey There Santa’, in addition to working I also got to strut my stuff alongside Miss Bourjeaurd in the video – it was a blast being behind the camera, which you will see when you watch it!

So this weekend I’m getting in the Holiday spirit, I’m going to throw on my new favorite Christmas jingle, dance my as* off around the house decorating in shades of cream and gold and sip eggnog avec rum…..

Cheers to getting in the holiday spirit, and a little tipsy!

Check out the video and download the song at www.daniellebourjeaud.com, a dollar from each purchase goes to the Salvation Army – spread some holiday cheer peeps!

Happy (dance your as* off decorating around the house) Weekend!
