Chanel in the Air

Jean-Pierre Jeunet, one of my favorite directors, and the beautiful Audrey Tautou team up for the latest Chanel film for the classic fragrance. You might have already seen the condensed television commercial, which I noticed for the first time yesterday.

If this doesn't make you want to buy some perfume, I don't know if anything will. How do you say perfection in french?...Oh yeah, le perfection. Add language educator to my list of blog duties. I know, I know. Your welcome.

Chanel advertising campaigns must be working because the company estimates that a bottle of Chanel No. 5 is purchased every 30 seconds across the world.

Red Carpet Beauties

There's nothing better than sitting in my comfy bed and watching beautiful gowns and stars strut the red carpet. Combine that with one of my other faves television, and Emmy's you've got me hook line and sinker. After sifting through the mediocre looks and the sea of taffeta, there's something special about picking a group of women who look stunning and hit the top of your best dressed list.

These are the ladies who did no wrong in my fashion book.

Makin' A Comeback

Photobucket Photobucket

Look familiar? It certainly does to me. It's the same Baby-G watch I adored several years as a teen, and now the colorful trend line from Casio is back. I've gotta admit, I'm kicking myself for not hanging on to my baby blue, constantly-beeping watch because, as we all know, what goes around comes around.

Call it maturity or change of style, but these new and improved styles are a much better fit into my accessory collection for a twenty something in 2009. Let's just pray the tamagotchi and furby stays forgotten and ignored by the general public!

The Hills to Bryant Park

Whitney Port wouldn't be the first name I would associate with fashion week, but I'll give the girl props. Her spring line for Whitney Eve debuted Thursday with a whimsical and flirty vibe that isn't afraid to show a little leg. Something that can come in handy here in the Valley, where it's always ten degrees hotter. With typical spring pastels, the line showcases pieces I would love to have in my closet several months down the road. Hey! I've gotta get through fall first.

Not too shabby, right? I'm happy that the most grounded and mature girl of that show(at least that's my opinion) has created a name for herself outside reality television. She could have easily joined the group of fame whores like that blonde married couple I shall not even name.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Can't Have One Without the Other

Last night's after work festivities consisted of a mango margarita accompanied with some chips, salsa and good company. It got me thinking what other combinations can compete in a list where margaritas, alongside chips and salsa, rank pretty high on my list of favorites. Here's what my food loving self came up with.

Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches

Popcorn & Peanut m&m's

I think any 10 year old would agree with my list. Lucky for me, I can choose to have these any time I want without a begrudging reply from an elder. Oh, the joys of being an adult. What food combos do you adore?

Cry Baby

Goodbyes are hard. Harder the second time around. I'll be counting down the days til this shoot for the boyfriend is over. The past two days with him were great, and now I'm left a bit blue from his departure and the reality that I've got to go back to work tomorrow (as does he). Ugh. Can't money grow on trees? Pardon the lackluster, melancholy tone today. I'm not one to fake it, and I'm in a mood to pout!


I was tear-free until I started playing the new Imogen Heap album. Let's just say the first song entitled "First Train Home" doesn't sit well with my fragile state. A good cry never hurt anyone, and great music accompanying it makes me feel like I'm in a scene from a movie. Dramatic?...just a little.

I'm off to watch babies laugh or cute puppies on YouTube. I'll be better tomorrow, promise!

Miscellaneous Must Haves

ModCloth is a site that I've come to love for many reasons. Oh, let me count the ways. There's the great story behind the business, the unique prints on the dresses, and the feeling of visiting a vintage clothing store all by the click of a mouse. Do I even have to mention the Mad Men 60's vibe I get when I visit?

I had spent a lot of time shopping through the accessories, clothing and shoes while altogether missing out on the "apartment" section. That is until now! Check out some of the quirky items I must have from their site. At the very least, they'll bring a smile to my face.
