Journelle – this place just makes me happy. Look at this stuff! It’s simple, pretty, sexy and fun – what more could you want? I think all women should have unlimited bank accounts for lingerie. Can someone please take care of making this happen? It would be so fun…
I woke up on Tues. and people were a little bit all over the place and I said to a woman I was speaking with, “Is it a full moon today because I don’t know about you, but don’t people seem a little bit crazy today?” She whole heartedly agreed and then looked it up. It was in fact a full moon the next day. My sister who works with kids called saying the same thing. She had a really rough day at the school she works at because the kids were major drama that day. I replied telling her about the full moon. I then suggested she mark all full moons on her calendar so she is prepared to most likely have issues arise with kids on those days. Come on, we all know the moon moves the ocean tides so it can certainly effect people. For those who think there might actually be a correlation, here are the dates:

Kusmi tea originated in Russia in 1867 and opened in Paris in 1917. They advertise it as a Parisian tea despite it’s beginnings in Russia. About a year ago Kusmi opened its first boutique store in NYC. For about a year I would pass by the window in a rush and think, I have to go in there next time… Despite the tea enthusiast I am, it’s taken me until today to stop in and purchase some of their tea. I can assure you after just tasting their Jasmine tea, I’ll be back visiting the boutique in no time. If you can’t stop by their store there is an option to order online (which I didn’t realize until today).
My brother just recently told me about the HeyTell app. for my iphone and this modern day walkie talkie is so cool. You download the app on your iPhone or iPad and have whomever else you want to be able to walkie talkie with do the same. It’s faster and better than texts. I use it with my siblings and my nephew who thinks it is the coolest thing. We got to discuss his Harry Potter book report he was doing yesterday. I mean, I can’t even. Kids are cute enough and then you have the ability to walkie talkie with them and it just becomes pure fun.
Just in case you didn’t watch the Ferris Bueller Superbowl commercial for Honda yet, I had to post it here.
I may not have kids, but when I saw this stroller came out I laughed and had to read the specifics.This Jetson style stroller is lit on the underside of it so you can clearly see everything beneath your feet. I pictured it being illuminated on on the underside, but hovering above the ground like a Jetson mobile. I’m thinking the hovering feature will be next because with all this strollers bells and whistles it weighs 29 lbs. and isn’t anything someone wants to lift along with holding a little one. A GPS style device sits on top that tells you via a sensor your child is actually in the seat, how charged up your battery is (it has a phone charger too) and how far you’ve trotted with your little one. A push of a button makes it collapse or open up. It retails for about $850.00.
Kate Spade is on my block, two Avenues over so I regularly walk by the shop en route home. Overall, their windows are a delight to look at whenever I pass by. They seem to be trending statements on their merchandise this season that hit it just right when it comes to how one feels in the middle of a cold winter. Temperatures in the city have been frigid in the teens and feeling more like single digits with wind factors added in. When I saw this hat in their window my head went directly to seeing it on my head while sitting on a pristine beach in my bikini. I thought, please send me there now. I have no doubt it says it right for anyone else experiencing single digit temperatures:
I don’t know about you, but a cocktail, glass of wine or a cold beer sometimes just doesn’t cut it for me.
When I am maxed my definite go to is a bubble bath. It just clears my mind, while putting me into super relaxation mode. I’ve tried different bubble baths, but the one that I love most is Kiehls Lavender Foaming Bath. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a must have for every girl out there. Try it out. I know I get out of the tub feeling like a new person from it and hope you do too.
