I must admit that living in California most of my life has made me extremely spoiled when it comes to the weather. On the coldest days in San Francisco has nothing on New York during the winter months. But despite the freezing temperature, the rain, the snow, despite the fast pace and huslin’ + buslin’ your way through the crowds there’s still something very warm and fuzzy about NY that keeps people coming back year after year and season after season. Despite not being able to feel my nose and toes on some days and wearing layers and layers of clothes, I had a terrific time in the big city. I was able to see good friends and family again, eat delicious food, shop the small boutiques and share every moment with the love of my life.
There’s nothing better than ultra soft, comfortable jeans, well maybe there are, but these Joe’s Jeans are pretty darn awesome. The soft and stretchable texture make these the first pair I’d usually reach for whenever I want to wear pants. It’s not always easy finding a perfect pair of good quality skinnies that fits in all the right places so lately I have been searching to add more comfies to my closet. A few of my other favorites are from Shop Garage, Rich & Skinny and Hudson Jeans.

A whole year of waiting for Breaking Dawn Part II is finally over! I remember the very first time I started reading the books and how I was irrevocably immersed in the fairytale that I couldn’t put down the books. I even almost purchased the life size cardboard of Edward so I can place him in our pad. Yeah, it was pretty bad.
Although I’m sure Nate is beyond thrilled and relief and that our annual 2 hour waits in movie lines is finally going to end, I’m a little sad that this is the final chapter. On the other hand, I’m really excited to see the ending tonight and relive the fantasy one last time. Well, until I get the DVDs. :)
Happy weekend guys, be safe and stay warm!
Stumbled upon this hidden gem during a weekend stroll at Stanford. I can’t believe I have been living in the SF bay area (Palo Alto) for well over a decade and never knew there was a place like this. A little island in the middle of downtown Palo Alto filled with life size cacti, palm trees and abundance of sunlight. Geez, I need to get out more!

Leopard print booties has been on my wish list for years and I’m happy to say that the search has finally ended with this Stuart Weitzman leopard ankle boots. After the endless debates, mainly with myself (and my poor friend Sab who I’ve sent a gazillion photos to :). I’d finally decided to pull the trigger and couldn’t be any happier. The exotic boots with it’s extremely soft all over calf hair and back tassel details makes a bold statement, nicely juxtaposing my pretty basic ensemble. It’s no wonder leopard is an instant pick-me-up…when nothing seems to work, put leopard on it!
