Chanel Spring 2011 Couture Collection and my favorite part was all the models had flats on. Karl himself declared that he was sick of all the high heels and had the models walk the runway in black mules. Can't wait to bust mine out as soon as this snow melts. My shoes are vintage Nine West.

Rikshaw Design. What a treat it was to get a sneak peek of her latest additions to her collection coming this spring/summer 2011! The newest patterns are brilliant and the summer dresses for the little girls were so sweet, Salma will definitely be getting one. I did take a picture with Catherine, actually I should say Salma took a picture of us, it didn't make the cut.

My sis raves about these two sisters from the UK, Samantha and Nicola and they do makeup tutorials that are pretty pretty! They call themselves PixiWoo and they are amazing, with a step by step how to, you will be able to do these looks yourself. As they walk you through they let you know which products and tools you will need. I've tried it and I give it two thumbs up.

eeBoo toys in our house, beautiful and well-made educational games my kids are so happy to be playing with theirs. I recently got them this memory game where you match faces from all over the world. While my kids play they have their atlas book next to them so they can see on the map where these countries actually are.

Fellow Colombian, Tata Harper created a 100% all natural beauty line featuring the worlds finest natural ingredients, not one single chemical is used. I'm impressed, not only is her packaging beautiful and simple but from the reviews I have read Tata is on to something. All done on her own farm in Vermont Tata hand mixes all her products to offer us gals amazing results. I first read about her in Vogue and now am very intrigued to try her stuff.

Finally, I have the option to get an iPhone. I have had Verizon service since my very first cell phone, all my siblings have the iPhone and I have a Blackberry. I kinda like my Blackberry. What to do? Pre-orders for existing Verizon customers start Feb 3rd.

The latest issue of Lonny Magazine is out and once again it does not disappoint. The pages are filled with the most beautiful ideas to decorate your home. Alas page 70 was my favorite, a recipe for whoopie pies. During the holidays my friend Cathy made a tray of whoopie pies, half chocolate and half red velvet, to die for!
Iman is just gorgeous and her cosmetics are amazing, created for women of color this kit is the perfect take along. The Iman Eye-Con Collection($35) is a step by step palette that will give you super model results! I remember back in the day I was working at a beauty magazine and I came back from lunch, checked my voicemail and on it was Iman's voice "Hello Nicolle, it is Iman I would like to talk to you about...." her voice was so seductive, her beauty was echoing through the phone. Available January 15th.

Spring/Summer 2011 is looking so good to me right now. Another fabulous collaboration is coming to a Target near you. Calypso St. Barth, luxury resort wear, has created a beautiful and affordable collection coming May 1st to Target. I can't wait, the hubby and I honeymooned in St. Barth and this is the closest that I will get to getting back there.

I love the look of layered jewelry. When I received my J.CREW catalogue this week in the mail the cover was so spring inspiring. I have tons of accessories that I can stack up on my wrist to ride out this trend. The pearls in my picture are actually a necklace given to me by my dad and I thought why not double it up and wear it as a bracelet!

I have been on the prowl for a large mirror for my downstairs bathroom. I found this gorgeous round mirror from Z.GALLERIE, but with a $$$ price tag. Off I went to HomeGoods to see what I could find and Viola I found this square one for $70. Now I need to start construction so I can hang it up.
Monday morning and the kids are back at school, WooHoo! Reading my daily blogs I stumbled upon this very cute notebook that Two Ellie wrote about. I want to be more organized this new year and hopefully forever and I like the idea of lists and keeping budgets, etc. I will be getting myself a cute notebook from Bubbo on Etsy, they will customize your notebook to say whatever you want.
Every day when I drop the kiddies off at school I tell them the same two thing...1. Make magic happen! and 2. Ask interesting questions.
Two things I love, a tea party with French Macaroons and the online shelter magazine Lonny ! The August/September 2010 issue is out and its...
