Bla, Bla, Blahnik!

A great shoe can make a $20 outfit look like couture.
A poorly constructed shoe can make couture look like a cheap knockoff.
-Nina Garcia

You are what you wear is true.
A girl is as hot as the shoes she choose!

Be My Fireman.

What is it this power that lingers on, holding me captive?
What is this flame that's burning me to ashes?
Decide my fate, it is in your hands...

Love is giving someone the power to destroy you,
but trusting them enough not to.

Brand New Day

New day, new designer.
Whether it's love or war you're outfitting for,
thank god for friends and fashion.

Learning to be content requires that you stop any “when and then” thinking –
“When I am ___________, then I’ll be happy.”
“When I have ___________, then I’ll be happy.”
(You fill in the blanks)

The reason we fall into this trap is that we may actually be content for a little while but it won’t last. But, more than likely, someone else or something else will come along and drain the contentment from our lives.

Happiness isn’t getting what you want. Happiness is being happy with what you have. Look at all the things that have been given to you.

Unfortunately, we often focus on what we don’t have and forget the many wonderful things we do have, not only material blessings, but far more important things, such as family and friends.

A key to contentment is recognizing that you have the choice to be happy right now with the many things that have been given to you. What are you waiting on to make you happy?

True Love's Kiss

Many a girl has waited long, for a husband brave or strong;
but I’m sure I never met any sort of woman yet
who could wait a hundred years,
free from fretting, free from fears.

Now, our story seems to show
that a century or so, late or early, matters not;
true love comes by fairy-lot.
Some old folk will even say it grows better by delay.

-Charles Perrault, The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods

Comeback of the Year!

Remember this dolly face?

Gemma Ward has been off the radar for some time now, sitting on the modeling sidelines for almost three years. Various rumors said Ward had gained weight, she was depressed after actor Heath Ledger's death or simply that she had enrolled in Yale to pursue acting.

But Ward is set to make a comeback, in a big way, playing a mermaid in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides". She will act alongside Johnny Depp, Megan Fox, Penelope Cruz and Geoffrey Rush!

Wedding Peach

Spring has sprung and we have some peachy keen inspiration with elegant touch. Sweet but sophisticated, the color peach is now ripe for the picking. Pair it with classic cream for a combination that's fresh, modern, and gloriously memorable.

Traditionally spring is associated with the beginning of new life. Flowers bloom, and the earth awakens from its winter sleep. A beautiful spring wedding might be outdoors, in a garden, with an abundance of fresh flowers. Use light, pastel colors in the décor for a clean, radiant look. Place a petite favor vase with a single blossom at each place setting echoing the flowers in the bridal bouquet.

This lovely little inspiration shoot provided a much-needed dose of sunshine to my morning!

*New York, I Love You!

The smoochy travelogue franchise that got its passport in 2006's Paris, Je T'aime hops across the pond for this vaguely overlapping portfolio of Big Apple lovebites...

New York, I Love You is a tale of the connections and personal missteps that occur every single day in the city that never sleeps. It plays out like a movie version of a song mash-up: some story lines are linear and independent of the rest while other characters wander in and out of each other's lives. Throw an all-star cast in there, and you could possibly have a recipe for perfection.

Made up of a series of short films, New York, I Love You is an homage to the city as well as the residents who hold it near and dear to their hearts. Have a little bite of the upcoming V day!

Then a reality.
Now a memory.
