About 6 Christmas's ago I got The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with every single one of his Holmes stories. I think it is one of my favorite Christmas presents ever!! I read every one of those mysteries till the early hours of the morning because I could not go to bed without knowing who the murder was! So of course I was over the moon when I saw this movie was coming out (especially because Jude Law would be starring in it!). So me my mom and my sister (my dad went to bed what an old man haha) went to see it Christmas night and I was not disappointed! I loved it and was glad it wasn't as dark as I thought it would be. I really like how everything comes together in the end!! Go see it!

It was a good Christmas!! I only got one day off work but it was still so much fun! I got a nice winter coat which I really needed! We got my little sister an old (working) Minolta x-370, and I think that was the most exciting present to watch be opened... she had no idea!! Anyway here are some photo booth pics me and the little sister took while waiting for dinner to be done...

So I have a new color obsession it is RED and TEAL. I don't know about you but I would not think to put those colors together, but when you do they really look awesome! My wardrobe is pretty much pastels so I don't own anything red. I guess I have to work on getting an outfit but I deff. have some teal, so at least a start!! Here are some teal and red items I found online for inspiration...

It is obvious that I love owls. I can't quite pinpoint when the love fest for these big eyed birds began but I know it's been a while. Maybe it's because they remind me of myself (everyone always says I have big eyes, and I don't mean this in a conceited way it's just what everyone identifies me with most!) which is kind of where my logo came from. I don't know that it is supposed to be me but maybe it was inspired by me and a old photo of me with a really big pink bow on...
Baby Nicole! I think I was about 3 here.
Anyway I am just in love with their cute little faces and have started collecting all kinds of owl related things. I will have to take a picture of my entire collection one of these days. So until then I think I will make this post my Ode to Owls!!

My favorite holiday of all time is almost here and I am determined to make it the best yet... hmm hope I didn't just jinx it... My family is usually running all over the place for Christmas, we usually go back to Jersey and do the marathon family visits, but this year we are staying home. I will miss our big Christmas Eve dinner (we're Italian so we have the whole Feast of The Fishes... and then some!!). Hopefully we will still be going to NJ just later on maybe in January, everyone will just have to save Christmas for when I get there! Anyway we are finally going to start some of our own Christmas traditions! We haven't decided all of them yet but we have decided on a gingerbread house contest, a day full of baking delicious italian pastries (recipes to come!!), watching It's a Wonderful Life, making our own garland (from cranberries and popcorn), and that's all we have so far! If you have any traditions you would like to share I would love to hear them! And finally here it is, my Christmas list this year...

So I have to say my favorite designer of all time is Chanel. Original, I know! But I believe if something is this popular it must be some kind of awesome!! I was looking through the Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection and was definitely inspired. Thanks Karl you never let me down!!
This is my FAVORITE color pallet ever! I just love pastels! Almost a little Marie Antoinettesque...
If I could live in a movie it would be this one!!
