Lapis Lazuli

The beautiful ultramarine color of Lapis Lazuli has been used in artwork throughout the ages and has been the inspiration point for many painters. A combination of it's extremely rich and vibrant color as well as the rarity of the precious stone from which it is extracted from only add to the admiration and beauty of the amazing artworks it has adorned. I love this dress because it almost captures the vibrant cobalt blue tone of Lapis Lazuli.

Happy Valentine's Day! (Gift Ideas)

With Valtentine's Day around the corner, it's time to get ready to cozy up, cuddle up, eat chocolate, put on some music, and delve into the romantic comedies..

One thing I'd like to mention to all my single ladies and fellas out there, don't be mistaken... Valentine's day is the perfect opportunity to excuse yourself to a day of self-pampering: Do your nails, get your hair done, bake some heart-shaped cookies and invite some friends over to help you eat them, have a movie night slumber party (I've never done any of these things on Valentine's day before, but they are all beginning to sound like very good ideas). And to all my single guy friends out there... REVEL in the fact that you do not have to spend any of your MONEY on someone else today, that you do not have to worry about pleasing someone else today, or spending all of your TIME on someone else, but can instead choose to use this time for whatever your little heart desires...

And to those of you who are so lucky as to find someone mutually attracted to your unique self, (or to those of you who just want to tell a friend, "Hey, thanks for being awesome") I've compiled a list of little goodies that make for a perfect Valentine's Day treat (For you, a friend, or that special someone)... Hope you enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day! (Gift Ideas)

1. First on the list is a nice card. There are a whole range of Valentine cards--anything from cute, whimsical, or witty, to sexy or romantic, to hilarious or just plain creepy, there is a card for every purpose you seek to fulfill. Despite the simplicity of a card, nothing says "I care about you" (romantically) or "You're an amazing person" (platonically) more than a few thoughtful words or flattering compliments. There are also some really funny Valentine cards to give out to your best friends for a "Hell Yeah I'm Single!" pick-me-up.

Rain or Shine...

I don't know what it is about yellow trench coats and matching yellow boots which provoke the child in me that has the urge to stomp around in puddles and dance in the rain... Seeing as we have yet to have a spring shower this week, I have yet to need an excuse to put these yellow boots and trench coat to use!

Hope you all had a lovely friday!! ;-)

Et la musique...
