Flashy Lights

I really want to replace the lighting in our Flat.  The Chandelier we have in the living room and entry is horrible.  We are renting and my husbands doesn't want to change it.  I am sure I can talk him into :)  I mean seriously look how cute these chandeliers I found at Urban Outfitters are.

Hit or Miss?

I have been really impressed with Old Navy.  Usually it's a miss for me but lately it has been hitting.  This entire outfit is $100- not bad

Happy Monday!

Life is...

Life is often taken for granted and you don't realize how beautiful it is until you are reminded how easily it can be taken away.  Today is a gift and life is truly beautiful.  

Enjoy Your Weekend!

Staple pieces in my closet- Great Black Bag (I need a new one), Scarves (bigger the better), Boots and a Leather Jacket.  Pretty much wear it every weekend ;)

Gold Champagne Glasses

This weekend we did another DIY project or as my husband puts it DIO (Do it ourselves) since I usually enlist his help :).  I got the idea from pinterest and wanted to try it out.

When we moved to London we put all our wedding gifts and nice dinnerware in storage.  The champagne and wine glasses we brought are Crate and Barrel Outlet buys and thought why not just add a little gold to them.  There was no pressure since the nice ones are in storage..ha!


What you need- spray paint and tape

taped glasses with design



I also spray painted the rims of my wine glasses

Pick your colors

apply polish- I put 2 coats on

Let dry

and wear

Junk in the Trunk

More like junk on the Louis Vuitton Trunk.  Someday I will own a Louis Vuitton Trunk and it will be my coffee table...no doubt.

Weekend Recap

This weekend was the start of one of my New Years resolutions, to try new things.  Friday we were boring and stayed home trying to get back on London time.  It still hasn't worked...  Saturday we went shopping and tried out a new pub we have been wanting to check out forever.  It was fun and nice to just be with Matt.  After our Christmas Holiday we needed a date night.  Sunday we rented a car and I drove in London for the first time.  Driving on the left is scary enough but throw a manual my way and it is even scarier.  My right hand wanted to shift, I have big red buses swerving in my direction, random people crossing the streets, and bikes everywhere.  I felt like I was in MarioKart just dodging buses instead of turtle shells.  I am suppose to get my company car this week or next.  Hopefully my little practice yesterday has me ready...lol!  We ended the weekend at the movies- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  I saw the original one a month or two ago, both are pretty good.  I had a few issues with the new one, they changed the storyline and people either had Swedish or British accents.  The story took place in Stockholm-they should have Swedish accents.  Anyways it was still a good movie but the book was better.

Happy Monday!

Happy Friday! 

Wednesday, January 4, 2012


Eight hours later two tired and cranky Americans made it to London.  Our car service was late picking us up and drove completely out of the way making me even more cranky.   We are finally home and I am forcing myself to stay up till at least 7.  I am sure I will be up at 3am...the joys of jet lag.  Few instagram picks from the plane ride...

Happy Hump Day!
