I know...

I have been absent, it's been a hectic couple of weeks and now I am trying to pull my world together so I can go to LONDON!!!!!!!!! Yes it is finally here, I am leaving this week! I am still hoping to meet up with Mr. Bazaar (fingers crossed) but either way it's going to be fantastic and I know I will tell you all about it when I get back. I am trying to harness my inner control freak and just let the trip happen and not make too many plans (but I do have my folder with print outs of various places to check out.) If you have any fab place for me to go let me know!

Until then, love on this Yummy Union Jack.

5 Things I Heart - Lauren Rubinsten

I have known Lauren for about 5 years now and work aside, I love being her friend. She is so much fun and so full of life. I have had the pleasure of working with her on numerous occasions and her photography is just stunning--but aside from that she is a great person. Here are five things you should know about Lauren: 1. She travels a lot for work (so I never get to have dinner with her. sad face.) 2. She has super adorable dogs who love popcorn. 3. She loves to cook and is supposedly good at it, but she live SO far away so I have no idea. 4. She always smells AMAZING (I can't believe she is giving out her secret mix!) 5. She and I have a shooting record of 18 shots in one 7 hour day (including stopping for lunch)--after 5 years we are super fast together. smiles. Here are Lauren's 5 thing she hearts:

#1. Clean crisp sheets. My favorite. ... SEA cell sheets from Private quarters. Made from sea kelp and cotton. The softest sheets around!

#2. Body lotion and hand lotion. I have all sorts. My faves. AHAVA body lotion and C. Booth body Butter in Olive Oil.

#3. Black Truffle Salt. From Dean And Deluca. A must have for everything yummy.

#4. My favorite mix of perfume. Angel innocent and Trish McEvoy #9. My own concoction.

#5. Lulu Lemon work out gear. All Of it. It is made so well that even the worst launderer can not shrink or ruin it.

Happy Birthday Y.S.

I almost forgot...in fact I had a small panic attack thinking I had missed my own 2nd birthday! In an attempt to avoid the terrible 2's I have been busy thinking of new posting ideas and here is what I have come up with. I will absolutely continue with my 5 things I heart series--that's a total given. I will revive my mixology series (see here) and I am thinking a weekly game of Drag Queen or Cabinet Finish/Fabric/paint color is in order, example: Cabinet Finish OR Drag Queen: Deluxe LaBelle Chiffon? I am happy to report that MWDA is super busy so it might take a minute for this brilliant ideas of mine to take hold but stay tuned and thank you for 2 great years!
