Leaving on a jetplane

I am leaving for a destination I hold very dear, in a week! It's very exciting and I can't get it out of my mind - I miss it since I haven't been there for years!

Styling tips from a 6-year old.

I'm not shy to admit that I do like dressing up and being well, an adult female. I do enjoy putting on a little something special underneath my clothes and feel a bit sexy. I will also admit, though, that when I saw the Zara Kids Lookbook for November, I just didn't feel like being an adult anymore. I mean, look at this kid! Could she be more awesome?

Bon Anniversaire

The placement cards, a variation of the standard origami crane.
I attended my father's birthday the other night. It was his 50th, so he decided it was about time to "bring out the big guns" and have a feast. We hired a chef and enjoyed a fantastic 11-course meal. I will try to remember all of the courses as well as I can, but there may be mistakes (sorry).
I would also like to apologize in advance for the somewhat horrible quality of these photos (with the exception of the caviar pictures), but I still wanted to share some good food (and wine) with you! I also didn't take photos of the first three (and all of the champagne as well!)  courses, which is a real shame - we had oysters that were to die for!

I really enjoy taking walks with my dogs, especially in autumn weather, so I decided to do just that the other day.

A Few Things

These are just some of my things, but they are also those of my things I use, or look at, the most. So of course, this would make them my favorite things. I do have other favorite things, that I don't use that often, like the ring my mother gave to me when I was 18, which I don't use fairly often and such. But these things are almost always around me.

My Hermès bracelet. I have been wearing this ever since I got it. It was actually this bracelet that made me start wearing gold, seeing as I always thought of myself as a "silver girl". I'm still getting used to wearing gold, but now I've stopped wearing silver. Maybe someday, I will get comfortable with mixing my precious metals. Alas, I have not yet.

Movember Wear

November wear #3

I've geeked out "polyvoring" today, to celebrate my new-found pseudo freedom from hydrogeology.
These sets I've made, are some I wouldn't mind wearing this Movember (if only I had the money). Have you guys heard about this before? Quite an honorable and amusing cause. I wouldn't want to shave my beard, though. I've been growing it out for 20+ years now, I can't just cut all of that off! The beforementioned was a joke, by the way.
