Dreaming of a dress

Love this Halston Heritage dress. We like to spend New Year’s Eve on the couch. Safe and warm with a bottle of champagne and a good movie. But this year, I’d love to step it up and spend the evening in this dress (on the couch with the champagne and TV, etc.) Do you have any plans for New Year’s Eve?

I’m thankful: Toddler thoughts

You may have noticed that I’ve been feeling a wee lost of late. Down and out. A bit pissed off. Generally bitter. I don’t particularly like myself this way but there is no ignoring a mood.

Stuff I want

Danielle included my holiday wish list today on her blogger round-up. Check it and see if you can guess which beauty I have already ordered for myself. This was fun, Danielle.
