I'm back!

Yes I'm back and fried. My shoulders have been burnt to a crisp thanks to the sun in Buenos Aires. Who would have thought 3 hours of a walking tour could sear your shoulders? And now, I am peeling like a snake shedding her skin. It's gross. But  as I peel my dead layer of skin off, I promise a photo diary of Mont Tremblant & Buenos Aires will follow shortly! :)

I'd like to say its nice to be back, but when faced with -13C temps after sweating it out in 30C, I'd take sweat and sunshine any day. And of course, we have the snowmageddon that has come down upon the Northeast.

GREAT. Now my feet are cold AND wet and I've been snowed on, hailed on and been slushed, sloshed and slipping around all over Manhattan. I am getting a pair of Sorels TOMORROW!

Just so everyone knows I am officially on PTO as of today :)
First stop: Mont Tremblant, QC for MLK weekend and then Buenos Aires, Argentina. YAY!

i hate to say it but I actually do like Louis Vuitton. Their bags are a little overrated especially since everyone in China and their child has one. BUT, I believe their saving grace other than their incredible worldwide brand equity & cache is their RTW. These are my faves for Pre-Fall, and although I do feel this Mad Men 1940s aesthetic is a little played out - you can't deny how richly lush this color palette is! My next must-have color in my closet: NAVY!!!!

There are some days when we feel like this

I think today is one of those days. Happy Weekend Everyone. Tomorrow is Monday, which means J & I are closer to our vacation than ever! YAY! :)

I've got an empty wall

Stickie Note Calendar

This might be a perfect way to fill it! :) Thanks Martha!

It's a cold, snowy Saturday night, I'm on the sofa, in front of the tv with Aladdin on ABC Family & J snuggled up next to me. I smiled when I came across this on my Twitter feed:

"In the end, I think the relationships that survive in this world are the ones where two people can finish each other's sentences. Forget drama and torrid sex and the clash of opposites. Give me banter any day of the week."

I am so good!

I have to give myself a pat on the back. I walked into Zara today with a friend and just about wanted to buy the whole store. BUT, I left empty-handed. Say no to shopping. Especially when you're going to Mont Tremblant & Buenos Aires in a week. PHEW!

Zara Envy

Happy New Year! I've decided to kick off the new year with ZARA :) A trip to this store is much overdue despite my looming but highly anticipated vacation. My credit card probably needs a rest, but how to say no with these fabulous cats on sale????
Lately I've been on the hunt for a camel coat..these babies are on sale

Then there's these in RED...
 Will I be able to hold out before my vacation & keep my credit card safe? Stay tuned and you'll see...
