5 little luxuries

image: forever21

this michelle armas print is going up somewhere in my apt (don’t know where). dreamy, right?
i fancy myself a whimsical gal who believes in magic and blowing bubbles to put everything in perspective. so this unicorn ring holder seems like the perfect reminder of my life motto, “believe in magic!”
can this heart print pj set be any more darling? no, i don’t think so. and the price… well how can i say no?
i am all about elevating the kissing experience, even if it’s just smacking my lips together in self-approval. the newest tool in my lip arsenal is a cinnamon plumping lip oil which is proving to live up to its brand name: bite. i find myself biting my lip all day in the most flirty manner possible of course!
this is more of a necessity than a luxury but still… a totally free personal trainer. i no longer have any excuses (like my latest, oh i can’t go to the gym today since i haven’t shaved my legs).

5 little luxuries

image: etsy

an interesting combination of nemo (n’eastern blizzard of ’13) nyfw and valentine’s day preparations have descended upon me this weekend.
in the banal world of lash curlers, help has arrived: chanel recourbe cils de chanel precisioneyelash curler. i am partial to anything from the house of chanel. And this little luxury elevates one’s makeup bag with a certain je ne sais quoi.
i will be sporting impossibly kissable lips thanks to the  sucqu lip balm that you can only get in japan. (smooches to you tm!)
my clarisonic mia has just found its soul mate! i am quite fickle about skin care. i jump at any promise of smooth, exfoliated skin. -even a hint at results i would expect from microdermabrasion sends me into a tizzy. well let’s just say olay professional pro-x exfoliating cleanser exceeded my expectations.
i could not be more excited about being snowed in because i will be gorging my senses (not to mention the long list of comfort food)with my diana vreeland: the eye has to travel dvd.
say hello to my new little friend, ella the gold elephant! (i named her already). she will be adorning my bar cart area. will post pics when she is ensconced at home.

5 little luxuries

image: harper's happenings

i have been doing quite a bit of cooking at home lately. and experiencing first hand that most recipes which claim to be  “quick and easy”, “ready in 15 minutes” are not. this quirky mocubo one stop chopping cutting board is my definition of shaving a few minutes prep time.

my bestie harbored dreams of being a rapper. her grand opus is a composition that consisted of: “sneak attack (clap three times) hold me back…”  you can’t imagine the joy i felt when i had the opportunity to give her a commissioned rap that will incorporate her long ago shelved dream…

inspired by a post in glitterguide.comi decided to host an oscars 2013 party and judging from rsvp responses such as “ohhh, i have a full length gown ive been itching to wear!!”, its going to be quite epic.
small plastic animals from target for this. and yes, i realize i am becoming that girl who is obsessed with diy projects. i hunt (no pun intended)for items  i need for my projects with the same intensity others might have in search for a $50 in-season chloe bag.
