Happy Friday with Gwyneth and Glee.

Are you all as ready for the weekend as I am? It hit me yesterday that Turkey Day is a mere 14 days away, DID YOU HEAR ME 14!!! I feel the stress level rising as that means Christmas is around the corner and I have not prepared a darn thing.

I have been really trying to better manage my stress levels and one thing that I try and do everyday is pick out a song turn it on as loud as I can, bearing in mind that my neighbors may not enjoy my eclectic taste in music, and dance around and sing my little heart out. It is surprisingly fun and a great way to shake of the junk that usually happens in our day to day.

I came across this preview of next weeks Glee on the Entertainment Weekly site  (yep I am a Gleek) with Gwyneth Paltrow and it was the perfect song to relieve the stress for my day, plus I could listen to it around Punky without feeling guilty.  I have the Cee-Lo version and while it is a catchy tune I am not sure it is appropriate.

So I thought I would share it with you all. So turn it up, get out of your chair and lets dance and sing together, it's Friday after all.YAHOO!!!

Taking Flight {Daily Photo}

I had trouble deciding which image I wanted to share with you all for my Daily Photo project (which is back up and running) so I thought I would share them all. 

It is not very often we get clouds like these in sunny Southern California so I had to take a few shots at a view point that I pass by everyday on my way home. I had some models show up as well, props to the seagulls for once! 

I think the first one is my favorite simply because I was able to include the ocean, what do you all think?

Women We Love.

For my beautiful Mom, thank you for being the inspiration behind this post. I love you.

A Diary and A Dress

On a side note I am also starting to think I have a minor obsession with alliteration as I feel all my blog titles need to have a some sort of repetition of sounds or letters (I warned you all I was a teeny tiny bit OCD). So in keeping with the tradition tomorrow will be Women and Words Wednesday or maybe Women We Love Wednesday. It's still a work in progress.

Afternoon Addiction.

I recently acquired a small afternoon addiction ...gingerbread latte and chocolate chip cookie.
I will say that I do share the cookie with Punky, but the coffee is all mine.

Martha Stewart + iPad + Cookies = YES PLEASE!!

Like I need another reason to buy the iPad.

Martha Makes Cookies is a application developed by the domestic genius herself and probably as close as most of us will ever get to having Martha over for a cookie party. The screenshots alone make me want to break out the sprinkles and cookie sheets. Not only does it come equipped with tons of great recipes but there are also some handy planning tools and videos that will make it seem like the cookies practically baked themselves, maybe.

I definitely think this is another reason to add the iPad to my Christmas wish list.

Designer Envy: Lulu de Kwiatkowski

I finally had a chance to flip through my favorite online publication: Lonny Magazine. Lonny quickly became my favorite interior mag after my beloved Domino had to close its doors, I still get weepy thinking about it.

Anyway back to the new issue of Lonny. I fell in LOVE with the home of textile designer Lulu de Kwiatkowski. I mean seriously look at how fab and light this home feels.

The colors, furniture and personality come through perfectly and I am now convinced that we could pull off a white couch, my husband is still not on board with the idea. We have an ongoing couch battle in our home at the moment as anyone who comes over knows, but I am of the mind set that slow and steady wins the race and his resistance is weakening. It has only taken 2 years.

I think that her philosophy is spot on and her tips for unleashing your inner creativity are now printed and hanging up in my home office. I have already found myself practicing her idea of doodling more, I hope to share these with you as soon as I can figure out why the heck my scanner does not want to be friends with Oliver (yes that is the name of our Mac and yes I believe in naming your electronics).
