I cannot believe it. Christmas is at the end of this week, as in 4 days from now. As in, when did that happen and what am I going to buy people?? Nevertheless it is nearly here and I have yet to make a true wishlist. So here it is. Take note Vlad, family, and friends. And yes, I realize my wishlist is almost entirely black, grey, and white.
Miscellaneous Bag Accessories
Y’all, I’m really hard to shop for. I have poor impulse control when I decide that I really must have something, and that leaves precious few gifts to buy at the end of the year. As if that wasn’t enough, my birthday is Christmas Eve, which only doubles the burden on anyone trying to buy anything for me, ever.
The safe money is usually on just taking me out to dinner and calling it a gift, but if anyone were to be confident or generous enough to try and buy me material goods for the holidays, here’s a sampler of what I might want.
Just this weekend, I was sitting at home, going through some mail from earlier in the week and came across the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. As I flipped through the pages, I couldn’t help but ask myself how certain designers are selected for a holiday book like this. I mean, clearly, there is no way each line available at the store can be featured, so, how is one designer chosen over the next?
Sometimes I think that our bag obsession may go a little too far. For example, Megs and I are getting the kick out of Neiman Marcus’ 2 piece Shoe & Handbag Servers. Most definitely a pair of kitchen accessories that can’t be missing in a bag loving wife’s and purse hating husband’s home. Grab’em at NM for 45 bucks.
Many days I forget what we ladies must do to impress men. It is a vicious circle that takes hours of prep and in the hot and humid summer my attempts usually just fail. My hair is disheveled, I begin to sweat, my skirt sticks to my legs, my heels kill my feet, but I am sure trying to make an impression for my man and in general.
After a hectic but amazing trip to NYC, I am back and ready to talk about… pets! It seems that we all love our animals so much. Nitro, my beloved Lab, has been getting quite the spotlight on the main page of the site lately. He is experiencing his 15 minutes of fame and enjoying it very much ;-) Since I am sick and feeling my animal loving side coming out today we have some exciting things for you all.
Roughly three weeks ago, when I left Megs in Columbus to what I like to call the lonely bitterness of a masters degree at the other end of the world, I had my layover in Charlotte, NC. For the past year and a half, since Megs and I started the whole long distance thing, I must have travelled through Charlotte a good 15 times.
Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. For some reason, Sunday feels about 182 times lazier than Saturday. It always has to me. It is more of a lazy unproductive day for me than any other. Typically I don’t get out of my PJ’s until about 2 pm (that is if I do ;-) ). So while I understand wanting to wear comfortable clothes, I also find some ‘comfortable’ clothes unappealing.
Kat2 posted this one on our Forums and it was just too brilliantly simply to pass it up. The Momo Safe Chair, straight Museum of Modern Art, has to be credited to the Design Against Crime Research Centre based at Central Saint Martins.
I don’t think anyone will be trying to sack your bag from between your legs anytime soon.
Any of you thinking of remodeling your house? If you are I am sure you have to go through the never-ending process of choosing paint color, wallpaper design, cabinets, fixture selections, etc, etc. So when you are looking for that perfect wallpaper to add to let’s say your family room or your bedroom, would you ever consider this Gucci Wallpaper?
