be cheerful the holidays are here!

I would like to watch this bunny hop around on my bed. I think it would be presh.
The worn-in cozy pants and super soft sweaters below are perfect to wear on a cool day in Miami in December. I want to roll around in daisy fields until dusk wearing these clothes.
I adore this kitten. Real or fake? No one knows. Obsessed. It's name would be Benedict and it would play with Meliz's puffy, tiny, orange persian cat named Barbara.
I don't know who makes these shoes but they are curious items. Lovely, in a slightly odd way.
Enjoy the cold weather and wrap up in cozy cardigans, big feather pillows, mexican hot cocoa, and watch the snow fall (((I WISH IT WAS SNOWING)))

an outfit for- New Years at Plaza Athenee

joys of the good life

So, what it do baby boo (unicorn lovers and dream fairies)? yes, that is hijacked from Alee but honestly it sounds better than whatup, whats good, etc. Anywayzzz, lately I've been marveling in the Miami sun, the cheap, cheap American dollar (I Looooove it), and lavender- clearly my favorite color (btw these are some of my fav items of the lavender season), also I am looking for some frilly lavender socks to pop out over my grey doc martens that look exactly like the ones below ((only grey)). I specifically want the panties and bow from below as well. Those sticks aren't half bad either.

Sitting in my bed now, Its got me thinking about beds and luxurious ones at that- the bed in my room is about ten inches off the ground (good in the first place, because i looove to be high up) it's got four posters draped in huge pink roses, dark purple silk, Indian orange iridescent fabric, a huge purple and feather dreamcatcher, a pink ostrich boa (think along the lines of Satine's elephant in Moulin Rouge), my childhood cutie lion, a few crystals and Indian charms and lavender Pratesi sheets (the best in the world according to me), along with that it's covered in a huge white down comforter (genius in Miami, right?) and on top of that ANOTHER down comforter with a reversible dark pink and orange duvet. The pillows are huge and feathery and I basically feel like a princess as I lounge in it at this very moment. I think it's very important to have a comfortable bed because besides from that fact that it is where you spend half your life (and if you're me you spend three quarters of your life) it's where you dream, and dreams can't be as lucid, colorful, and delicious if you are not in the most luscious bed possible. Another thing that really adds to my room is the Ula Darni lamp above my bed. Ms. Darni is a very special and talented artist who makes gorgeous hanging lamps and chandeliers and hand paints magnificent, colorful flowers and designs on the inside of the lamps. When they are illuminated the colors are brighter by tenfold and just all together fabulous. Below is a photo of a room which I just adore, I think its Gala Darling's or maybe Rita Konig's.

Missing Paris, I somehow came across in one of my blogging extravaganza's this utterly delicious looking macaron, yes macaron hamburger. It's the size of a quarter and tastes just like a normal burger, but bite-sized, precious, and tiny like my favorite French dessert.

Hats can be cool to rock if you have the right style, but I've been on the fence about them for a bit actually. I really like the ones featured below and I was out shopping the other day when I came across a fabulous black lace rimmed bowler kind of hat with a bow on it. Can you say TOTES PRESH? I didn't get it at the time because it was a bit pricey but now I'm thinking I kind of want to go back for it. Don't topple over if you wanna rock the Marie Antoinette hair!
So anyone who knows me knows that American Apparel is kind of the staple of my closet, mainly because it is so easy to mix and match, the colors are DIVINE, the clothes fit like a glove and they are not crazy expensive. Recently I heard that they were having an AmAp rummage sale in the Design District on Friday so of course I am going, but 5,000 people have already RSVP'ed making me think that this is going to be some sample sale-like day with a CRAZYYY line and even nuttier hipsters. Oh, and the best part- whomever can scramble for what they want gets it at the HUGELY discounted price of $2-7. YES, folks you are hearing right, 85% off. My heart is tingling from the joy of that statement. I can only hope they have the hot pink lace leotard with a snap bottom when I get there.
Now people, don't forget to adopt a bunny if possible and glitter yourself daily!

fairy goo and glitter

First off- check this awesomeness out..Raz showed me and I think this plane could really be coined magical~

Also, I've been thinking about the connection between indigo children and the rainbow family of living light lately and I think I would really benefit from going to one of the rainbow gatherings over the summer (a rainbow gathering is kind of like a gathering of a ton of hippies/hobos/dream lovers/explorers and sky searchers for one month out of the summer. They go camping in the forest, set up teepees or tents, build campfires, eat organic delicious food, play music, attend yoga classes, dance and take drugs.) I think this could be a highly beneficial summer choice. Also, I'm thinking of maybe escaping somewhere to write and explore creativity completely alone..kind of Thoreau-like.

I'm super excited to know about the Northern Lights and I'm really hoping to make a voyage to Finland next semester to see them and stay in an Ice hotel. Belle taught me about them and told me my closet reminded her of a clothing version of the Northern Lights.

I'm also totes mcgoats reconsidering fashion school apres SLC.

I need to buy a rainbow maker but this time a real one with crystals. I'm also debating between getting myself the Blackberry Tour for a holiday gift or the new iPhone. I've always been an iPhone girl and I'm leaning more towards that.

I think I may go to Grassroots in Ithaca with Amy this summer as well.

I'm so stoked I got this nice new chair from Olivia today for my Paris room and its beautifffful and wooden and leather and just luscious.

I want to wear red lipstick all the time. I think I may make it my new look. I've also gotten really into thigh high stockings since I've been living in Paris. They were kind of olden days-y for a while but now I'm thinking of bringing them back. I love the lace and delicacy of them. Despite the absurd prices (40 euros for a pair of tights) I adore Wolford.

I really want to eat some oysters. I've never had them.

Also, does anyone know where I can locate a converter that lets a French phone plug into an American wall? I really should be going to sleep now because I have to be up at 5 am to catch a flight from Paris to Miami. I will be in Miami for the next month. I wonder what I shall do to ring in the 2010 New Years? I can say that I am disappointed to let another year go by and miss the ball drop in person in NYC.

Have a Cartier filled first day of Hanukkah and don't forget to enjoy some very strong eggnog!

I shall leave you lovely readers with this.. the first of Joni Mitchell and David Crosby and the rest are my own creations.

paris is in the background, bonjour miami

Since I've been in Paris I adore lingerie.

And lambs, but that's not a Paris thing, that's a life thing.

Time to bounce.
