Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

It's always been a dream of mine to spend a white Christmas in New York City. There is just something magical about December in NYC whether it's the decorations, (like the giant tree at Rockafeller Center) Ice Skating in the middle of the city, and the snow..It's all beautiful.
I know I say this every year, but 2011 has been quite the whirlwind. There has been so many changes, tragedies, and accomplishments in a matter of months. The years seem to go by faster as I get older which makes me appreciate each day more and more.
Take this time that you have off, and celebrate it with your family. Cherrish the moments you have with your loved ones because you won't have them forever.
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!

Winter Tumblr Photos

I pull almost all of my inspiration from blogs, and the rest from magazines and people I see on the street. I am very familiar with blogger, but there has been a new blog site called Tumblr that I'm just starting to really appreciate. I absolutely love that you can type what your feeling or share photos that make you happy with anyone in the world. Here are two beautiful photos that brightened up my day from two of my favorite Tumblr sites.

Christmas Inspired Nails

December is the most exciting month for me. It's a great time to take a break from school and spend quality time with family and friends. Taking random drives to look at Christmas Lights and shopping with your best friends are the best. Everyone seems happier and the air is filled with joy.
I found these candy cane and snowflake nails that were photographed by Tracy Wang that truly inspired me. If your not in the Christmas spirit yet, these nails might help. The snowflake ones are my favorite. All you will need for these tutorials is the right colored polish and a tooth pick or thin brush for the designs. 
Fun Holiday nails are always great to show off at any Holiday Party!

Louis Vuitton Spring 2012

Louis Vuitton just came out with their Spring 2012 Ad Campaign starring Daria Strokous and Kati Nescher. The super sweet photos feature gorgeous clothing and ice cream, two of my absolute favorite things. This Ad by Steven Meisel has me smiling from ear to ear. It has my vote for sure!
