Friday's Fancies

12/14/2012


Before I forget...the winner of our Lulu & Georgia $50 Gift Card Giveaway is....Heather! Congrats girl! We'll be in touch with you soon!

Oh my gosh you guys, I am so relieved it's Friday. This week has been brutal. As I type this my eyes are practically half closed. I'm going up to L.A. this evening to visit family. On the train. Alone. This is huge. What's even better is that I'm staying at my aunt's house, which has an enormous fireplace, a gigantic, cozy bed, lots of novels and magazines and plenty of tea. Matt and Mila are planning on joining me up there on Saturday, but there's this part of me that greedily wants to have the whole weekend to myself. My Aunt's house is second best to my parent's house and I spent much of my childhood there. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or sick or need babying I feel that it's a place I can retreat. Do you guys have a place like that? Do you ever feel like you need to hide from the world for a little bit?

Today's fancies is centered on sparkle - which is fitting since our holiday guide yesterday was all about sparkle! In fact, I re-used a BaubleBar ring. It was too perfect! For more fancies check out Long Distance Loving! :)

Hugs to all and I'll "see" you Monday!
