Cotton Candy Dreams...

I just came across this whimsical editorial, styled by blogger Kelly Framel of The Glamourai, and I had to share it...not only is it absolutely stunning but it also exudes an amazing amount of charm and atmosphere...all I want to do is jump into that bed with those lovely sheets and lovely shoes and wear lovely pastels all day and eat lovely strawberries and drink Lady Grey tea...how simply marvelous! Enjoy...

Little Things...

I am sitting at my desk willing myself to concentrate on my research while little white snowflakes flutter around outside...I thought, no I hoped, that winter was almost over but mother nature still has a few tricks up her sleeve...sigh...our house is still a disaster but at least I finally got to take a shower this morning and the bathroom is starting to look really fabulous...who knew I could get so excited about a bathroom (a sign of aging perhaps?)...seeing as I am having such a hard time mustering any kind of inspiration, I figured I may as well post some lovely images to try and get those creative juices flowing...here's hoping...enjoy...
...even with the weather being as cold and dreary as it is, I cannot help but smile when I see this little face...
...a pop of bright colour in the winter...
...my favourite kind of afternoon treat...in my favourite tea pot...
 ...I haven't touched my scrapbook in so long, perhaps it is time to get back into it...perhaps...
 ...Camilla Grey art, a constant source of inspiration...
 ...indeed...
 ...when the clouds come rolling in...
 ...NYC...
 ...my idea of utter bliss...
 ...peek-a-boo...
 ...just plain stunning...
...that's it from me for today, back to work and back to trying to focus...hope you are all staying nice and warm...happy Thursday everyone...

Ottawa Fashion Week Wrap-Up...

It's been one nutty weekend I tell you, between bathroom renos (which feel more like demos) and Ottawa Fashion Week (OFW), I am not sure where to even begin...why not start with the fun stuff, OFW that is...this season took place in a brand new venue, which I actually loved, The Westin Ottawa...it felt both intimate and sophisticated, a nice change from the slightly impersonal Convention Centre of last year...the designers all showcased their Fall/Winter collections, and although I must be honest and some of the collections were a little lack-lustre, the majority were pretty creative and stunning...I put together a little photo collage of some of my personal favourites from the shows, featured below...in terms of the bathroom renos, here's hoping that I get to use my shower soon...no really let's all keep our fingers crossed...
PS to read some wicked and honest commentary on OFW check out this article, by Justyna Baraniecki (of Chameleonic) and for more photos see here!

...and that's it from my crazy weekend of fashion and renos, I admit the fashion bits were a lot more fun...now back to reality (writing, writing and more writing)...until next time Happy Tuesday everyone!

love...

Follow these instructions
Do exactly as I do
Lean your shoulders forward
Let your hands slide over to my side
Move your body closer
Let your heart meet mine...
Love is the harmony
Desire is the key
Love is the melody
Now sing it with me...

Come a little closer
Take a look at me
This light is so obvious
I want you to see
Come a little closer
Look me in the eye
Then repeat with me one more time...
Love is the harmony
Desire is the key
Love is a symphony
Now play it with me...

You'll be the rythm and I'll be the beat
Then I'll be the rythm and you'll be the beat
And love, the shoreline, where you and I meet...
You'll be the rythm and I'll be the beat
Then I'll be the rythm and you'll be the beat
And love, the shoreline, where you and I meet...

Happy Valentine's Day...
Love K
