Latest Obsession!

So anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE anything that is French or French-themed or made in France...pretty much anything French! sister....knowing that I love to write letters to my penpals and love French items, bought me a set of French Stationary! 

It is as gorgeous as it looks!
It is lovely and it is called French General Stationary!  You can purchase it online at French General .   ( can also purchase it at for a little cheaper!)  Turns out the designer is Kaari Meng and she has a whole bunch of French themed items!  I plan on buying quite of few of her items as I think they are beautiful!  I plan on getting some inspiration from her books and such for hair accessories and other little odds and ends that I plan on making!  Here are some of the things that I am coveting!! 


A house or room with a French Country great!
Would help with future endeavors!
Beautiful Fabrics!

Would this not be adorable for the holidays?!?!?
Can't get any better than ribbon that says that!
There are even trips listed on the website!!  Too bad they are sold out!  I will be on the lookout for future ones!

But my list of coveted items from this website could go on forever!  I love the ideas and French accent of all the items!  I will have to let you know when I purchase some of the items!!

Until then!

Update...Trip to NY!

So at the end of December, I went to New York to be a member of the audience for the view!  Diane Sawyer was a guest and so is so beautiful in person!  With such an amazing personality and essence about her!  The show was great and we also got free laptops!!

We had to wait in line for hours!  It was freezing outside!

The set!

After the show we got to walk around New York a little bit and this was an adorable little bakery!  It was called Magnolia Bakery!  They have some all around New York and I always find them in magazines and such!  It was such a cute place!!

So good!  I got a chocolate cupcake with white icing!!!

We also go to visit the Rockafeller Center and for the was gorgeous!  We just walked around, taking it all in!  I love New York during the holidays!!
