Stella McCartney on the cover of The New York Times Magazine. As one of my favorite designers, I can't wait for her upcoming fall show in Paris. I am off to find this on the newsstands, but you can read the article inside here.

prabal gurung.

I absolutely loved Prabal Gurung's Spring 2012 collection, and I love the campaign featuring Candice Swanepoel as well. If you haven't seen the Nepalese designer's collections, I highly suggest you do so!

sweet treats.

Valentine's Day! I told Jeff I didn't want anything, but he always likes to spoil me. Flowers and some yummy desserts. Oh, and there's my Valentine-themed manicure!

ysl furoku.

I have wanted to buy a purse holder for a while now, and when I saw that 25ANS had one by Yves Saint Laurent as a furoku, I immediately bought the issue! Sure, the issue itself was a bit pricer but was totally worth it. Now my purse won't have to take up seat room or sit on the floor when I'm out and about!

love is in the air.

Valentine's Day is no big deal to me, but it is nice to celebrate with your loved one! I remember the first year Jeff and I started dating, he went all out with the red roses and took me to an amazing restaurant where I had the most delicious steak in my life! But nowadays I am just happy to stay in and do nothing as long as he's with me <3

I do have a dinner outfit all planned out, just for fun! What are you guys going to be doing?

new york for a day.

I used to dream of living in NYC when I was younger, but as I grew older I realized all the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple wasn't for me. Not to say it's not fun to visit once in a while! I took a quick day trip to the city yesterday with Jeff and his family, as his brother's wife had never been there before. We stayed within the confines of Manhattan, just mainly in Chinatown and Times Square. As it started to snow in the evening we rushed back home to Boston, but I got what I really wanted - my favorite Japanese magazines! 

I didn't take many photos, but here you go! Perhaps after New York Fashion Week is over we'll make another trip soon.

In all honesty, I am not the biggest fan of Charlotte Free, but she looks fab in Wildfox Couture's Summer 2012 Lookbook! HAWAII + PINK is always a good choice.

Happy February! It almost felt like spring today - hopefully the groundhog will not see it's shadow tomorrow and the warm weather will be here early! In that case, I'd like one of everything from Madewell's spring collection.
