Spring Cleaning! 

IMG_4624Hi Everyone! We have been so spoiled by gorgeous Spring weather here along Lake Geneva for the past few weeks, that today when a rainy and cold day hit, I was actually caught by surprise!!! Ha! But, still in the mood for Spring, Dragan and I had a cleaning day.

After starting our day with fresh Pain Chocolat, and watching The Hangover 2( I know, I’m a little embarrassed) we got to work! How much do you love these mugs?  They make GREAT gifts! The “D” mug is from C Wonder and the “S” mug is from Anthropologie!!

We played great music ( Missy Higgins Radio mixed with Bruno Mars radio on ITunes) and we organized, mopped floors, cleaned windows….basically all the things I hate ❤️…..and bought fresh flowers for all over the house. I love all flowers, but for Spring, I’m a Tulip girl all the way!

I live how clean my house feels right now and enjoying some of my new purchases! I bought this floral vase at Anthropologie when in London, the super cute canisters at Hobby Lobby in Ohio, and this cute clock and outdoor floral bucket at IKEA!

Think I’ll run a bubble bath…..have a glass of wine……and read! Currently reading “The Miniaturist” and LOVING it! It’s Historical, Suspenseful and Thought Provoking!

Hope you have. A great day! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for more up to date daily photos on Travel, Fashion, and My Life!!!

Valentine’s Lips and My Favorite Accessories!

IMG_2946

Hello! Does anyone have any big plans for Valentine’s Day?? I know I did a post already, but I really love this Holiday, and wanted to do another showing my favorite lipstick colors to wear, as well as a few accessories and gift ideas. I even did a little video lipstick tutorial on creating the perfect red lip. I love Valentine’s because there are flowers and chocolate everywhere (who DOESN’T love that) and because it’s nice to have an incentive to go a little further into showing our loved ones how we feel. Yes, we should do it everyday, but I’m a romantic, and I like to be spoiled (even if I’m spoiling myself) and I LIKE it, dag gone it. 🙂

So, I don’t wear too much makeup, as you can see above where I’m wearing tinted moisturizer, blush and chapstick, but I LOVE lipstick, and I love bright, look at me lipstick. I have 5 different combinations to show you. Continue reading “Valentine’s Lips and My Favorite Accessories!”

Getting Organized

IMG_2518

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great day and feeling fantastic as we sail into the middle of our week.
I’m a pretty organized person, but I tend to keep track of it all in my head, so I wanted to get a planner to help me keep track on PAPER. Paper…….that illusive object we hardly ever use anymore, as we hold everything we need in our smartphone……but that I find suits my mind much more. I find it soothing to write things in paper and I enjoy pretty patterns and beautifully colored pens. I really enjoy browsing through luxe paper stores, as I appreciate the attention to detail as well as the effort to making ordinary things beautiful! After some searching, I have found the perfect planner and they come from Erin Condren.

Although she offers many products, I chose to buy a Life Planner on her website I cannot begin to explain how wonderful these organizers are to own!!! Packed with all you need as well as an array of additions such as stickers and extra notepads, personalized monograms, gift cards and inspirational quotes. I LOVE it!
I love how pretty it is and how excited I feel to pull it out in public, as I customized mine with a wedding photo on the back, as well as sitting down to plan over a cup of coffee! I’m enamored with writing in my notepad with as it is lined with flowers and has my name on across the top, and I can’t express how freeing it feels to be organized and have all my notes, addresses, events and plans in one spot!

Check out Erin Condren! You will feel so special when it arrives at your door in stunning packaging, I promise you won’t regret it!

Let me know if you have one already or if you like the different patterns on her website! Shop Here!

Dressing for the Cold…Snow Day 2

IMG_2201

Yesterday was full of snow, and we definitely made the most of it! I’m glad I was able to pull out my full ski gear for a few hours of romping around in Divonne. We decided to stay in the area as the roads were still bad and it was still snowing all day, so we took Jasper up to the chateau to play! I love going to the chateau b/c we typically have the place to ourselves and we can always get a hot chocolate inside if it gets too cold. I love that the hotel doesn’t mind us taking advantage of the stunning grounds. Continue reading “Dressing for the Cold…Snow Day 2”

Winter Run

IMG_1755

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good start to your weeks……:-)  Last night we received a good deal of snow, and I awoke to a very beautiful postcard setting outside my window. I have my puppy waking me VERY early these days with a loud bark (which I’m not pleased about) so I was feeling pretty lethargic most of the morning, having woken up to feed, play with and walk the beast, until he was tired enough to relax.( Continue reading “Winter Run”

Je Suis Cozy

IMG_1543

Hey everyone. 🙂 I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I just love Sundays as I’ve always viewed them as the most lazy day. In NYC, I always shopped or leisurely walked the city after church, and growing up, we always made Sunday a day for just relaxing with no agenda. As it’s winter, don’t we all just want to stay in a bit more…..cuddle up a bit closer…..and indulge in catching up on movies, shows and books? Well, I know I do!( Continue reading “Je Suis Cozy”

Strolling along St Prex…..

One of the most difficult things to deal with when moving to a foreign country, is the difficulty of making friends. Not just people to grab a coffee with and talk the basics, but a real friend that you can laugh and be silly around and just be comfortable around. At least for me, this is very important. I’ve made a few of these friends that I’m incredibly grateful to know, and most recently I’ve met a girl who is going through the exact same transition as me……it feels like I’ve known her a long time. Great!( Continue reading “Strolling along St Prex…..”
