tonight travis and i had dessert with mom and dad. we tried out the william sonoma peppermint hot chocolate and the homemade marshmallows. the mallows aren’t too good by themselves, but they are delicious melted in the cocoa! we also had some peppermint bark, of course. yum!
as some of you may know, or have read about on the blog, i got my hair cut and highlighted today. haircuts can be a traumatic experience for me…. but i actually really love this cut and the highlights really brighten it up. it is a good day!
so, that said, i don’t mind having spent the equivelant of 1 oz of Creme de la Mer for my new do…. although those of you who have been keeping up with the blog know how much that is, and probably realize that i am quickly sending travis to the poor house….
no puppy for me.
i just learned about the new Paper Source website. i love paper source. i love it so much i almost hate telling anyone about it because then they’ll know all of my paper secrets…. oh well, i am generous with my style knowledge, plus someday i will have a paper store that is one hundred times better than even paper source!
june got travis and me this cute christmas sign (you may have also seen the matching ornament on trav’s site). we hung the sign on our front door and it looks fabulous! (although sometimes it gets too windy and we have to bring it in.) our apartment is really in the christmas spirit now!
these c and c california shirts have been featured all over the place. they have a commercial on tv for american express (i think that’s the card), they were in my daily candy fashion update, and they were on Oprah’s favorite things show. they are supposed to be really soft and fit well, too. you can buy them here at shopbop.com. i like the classic tee in icicle, the tank in limeade, or the classic extra long sleeve tee in white.
i saw these pink rings at a website called Carrotbox. it is a website that sells only glass and plastic rings. they are all pretty neat, but i thought these would be perfect for chels!
i would like to start a website like carrotbox, but sell stationary and paper products instead of rings…
this Creme de la Mer is supposed to be the best face lotion on the planet. ok, it may cost an outragous $90 for 1 oz of this cream, but they say it is a miracle. it was created by a NASA aerospace physicist (are you listening, seth?) and it is used by all of the most glamorous stars…. i’ve heard Hether Locklear takes baths in it…. i certainly can’t afford this stuff, but don’t you think i’m worth it? it’s available at Halls on the Plaza, if you were wondering, and they have an eye cream, face serum, and some sort of miracle waters that go with it, but i would be more than happy to just get my hands on some of the cream!
travis and i went to my parents land yesterday with my family to celebrate thanksgiving. we had foil dinners and s’mores which were both very delicious. i had a fun time.
i already have this, so it isn’t a christmas gift idea…. i just really like it. this is the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink. I got it at Nordstrom last wednesday with my mom. it is really nice. it makes your skin glow, just a bit, and it doubles as a blush or shimmery eye shadow.
(just a suggestion, anything from Bobbi Brown would make a lovely gift… especially the Face Blender Brush. i really need that to go with my Shimmer Brick.)
travis & i had a smorgasbord for dinner. smorgasbords are my favorite meals! i also thought it made a nice composition, so you all get to see the photo… i know, i know, this blog gets more and more exciting every day!
