Where The Joy

Is @… unnamedunnamed (10)unnamed (12)Flash back to Friday and my love’s holiday cocktail party… we all know playing dress up is a blast when you are a girl. At first when I heard the party plans & where it was being held (San Francisco Art & Design Center) I was so excited! but then Friday came and I was not really in the mood to be honest. I had not see my better half in almost two weeks and I would of been so happy to cuddle on the couch, eat popcorn and sip wine.

Once I slipped (squeezed I should say) into my Halston Heritage dress (celebrated his return with a little too much food and champagne) I felt a little more like being seen, mingling & dancing.  To really feel the holiday joy, we put on Christmas music and as I turned on the lights (which those lights have 20 different blinking settings) I just wanted them to stay on and not blink as blinking drives me nuts, makes for a bit of a headache and crazy eyes……He snapped a few photos, so in good fun here I am untangling and searching for the stupid switch.

XOXO

Get Sparkly

unnamed (4)unnamed (5) unnamed (6) unnamed (7)I have slightly started decorating for the holidays. Things have been on hold for me with the news of my beautiful cousin, I have not been in the most festive mood. Every year I choose a different decor, could be red, silver and gold, gold or just silver. I am sure you can tell I really love muted tones and clean lines. I went a little on the more modern side this year with all black, white, silver and a little pops of teal. I must say I think it is rather divine and turning out quite cozy.

I adore sparkle and shine, (load up on sparkly balls) love the reflection and light that glass, silver and metal bounce around the room.  No tree this year, last year I had two Norwegian Pines that were just lovely… now they are outside in my backyard enjoying their freedom. Lights will find their way into metal baskets, fresh pine in glass vases and champagne glasses….a few more holiday wrapped packages and hopefully way more cheer.

XOXO
