it's been awhile

and I've been a little busy.

Let's just say I've been a little world traveler over the last couple of months (something I would rarely consider myself to be). Bachlorette party in Dallas, half a month exploring Italy and Paris, a long weekend in Boston, birthday, anniversary, birthday, brothers wedding in Dallas, and now back to New York. What a fabulous time it all was! Here are a few great shots to sum it up!

it's always so fun to try new products, but it adds up fast (and you really never know if they are going to work or not). well, here is your chance to get new products every month! birchbox sends a pretty little pink box to your house once a month with the latest and greatest beauty products, how fun is that? (and how cute is the box!)

Brad Ford

First off, love the name, I've always thought "Ford" as a last name makes you automatically sound so chic.
Secondly, love his style. Classic, clean lines, with a touch of flare.

Nancy Koltes

Luxury linens are perhaps one of the most important elements in a home. With everyone trying to create the highest thread count, or "luxury" cotton, I think it's best to stick with the pros who have been doing linens for years. Nancy Koltes has been creating linens for top celebs, politicians, and designers since 1984. All of her linens are calming to the eye and will make you want to crawl into bed and melt! You won't have to count sheep with these!

Nancy's NY showroom. Um, can I move in here?

i. die. my friend Kathryn and Rachel Zoe would so elegantly say. Every since La Dolce Vita posted this fabulous hotel I have been stalking this french designer Jean Louis Deniot. In my "stalking" attempt I came across a great q&a here.

I mean, perfection? I think so.

My apartment

I always think it's so fun to see how others live. Here is a little sneak into my apartment. My husband and I moved in about 6 months ago, so of course I have a mile long list of things I would like to do and add but it just takes time (and convincing of the husband). My hopefully soon purchases will be lamps from circa lighting (I'm in serious need of a new big floor lamp), a fabulous vintage headboard (like hers but smaller), and new bedding (I'm thinking Pratesi or at least similar to). Thoughts?

The reason we signed the lease...the view
...actually this is the current view as of yesterday with all the snow!
