I love Goyard! 
How could you not?! 
But I really really love it!

How amazing is this photo!?! This is Karl Lagerfeld's luggage! 
Some might think this is a bit overboard.
I think not!

After all, this the same man who said, "The iPod is genius. I have 300."


happy { b l a c k } friday



Some looks I am loving.



I am so thankful for everything in my life. 
I am thankful for my health, my adorable and loving dog, my wonderful friends and boyfriend, and my family {both in body and in spirit}.

I hope you all find many things to be thankful for.

Have a wonderful holiday!

desert /part three\

On Sunday after the Integratron, J and I spent the day in Joshua Tree. We both love going so much.
It really is one of the most magical places I have been. I can't really explain why, but I know what I feel when I am there. It is a very powerful place. Not to mention it is also awesomely beautiful.

It was about 54 degrees out and super windy - but we bundled up and hiked up this huge hill of giant boulders. It was so fun!

J was way more adventurous than I!

Me, snapping some photos.

Thank you desert!
I can't wait to see you again soon!

"The most beautiful thing 
we can experience is 
the mysterious."

- Albert Einstein


We headed out super early on Sunday to the Integratron!
There was this awesome rainbow out! We could see it end to end! AND, it followed us all the way to Joshua Tree!!

I had first been to the Integratron in August for my mum's birthday and it was such an amazing experience that I couldn't wait to go back.
The Integratron has a super interesting History, too long to go into here, but if you are interested you should go to their website and poke around.

We went for a sound bath, and it really is just that! You lay on these comfy mats while someone plays these quartz crystal singing bowls. The dome is built with the acoustics of a cello, so the sound just resonates and moves through you.
You leave invigorated and full of gratitude.

It is such an amazing experience!

 So, for my birthday I decided to have a little getaway weekend with J. I thought we were going to the Ace but he super surprised me and took me to the Korakia! My fave! We had a cute and cozy room! It rained all day and was chilly but we still took a swim {in the heated pool}! We had grabbed an underwater camera and had fun taking silly shots - I am excited to see how they turn out. 

We swam until our fingers pruned and then got all cozy with a fire and J cooked me my favorite pizza and made a salad. And then proceeded to school me in Monopoly. {Congrats on the win sweetie!}

It was a perfect day!

 It was so beautiful out that night - raining off and on and ever so often the full moon would peek out!
I tried to get a good photo of the beautiful clouds, but this is all I could get with out a tripod.

Check back tomorrow for photos of Joshua Tree!

I love these looks from the Creatures of Comfort Spring 2011 collection. 
The colors are so dreamy, like the colors of gelato and sherbets!

I would live every day in these pieces.

I am just flipping out over these amazing hand painted wallpapers!
I have so much love for these in so many ways...
... It is a combination of so many things I love: lady like depictions of nature, bringing the outside world in, hand painted detail, birds and butterflies... lots of pink!
