Diy Holiday Tutorials from DesignSponge

Today I was perusing DesignSponge and found these gems…I will be doing both. I’m excited. It’s freezing outside, so I’m enjoying and instant (gasp) cappachino. Perfect blend between hot chocolate and wih a slight coffee twinge. I also managed to score a blow out and some serious needed texurizing today!

WTF: Here’is hoping for snow!

Last time it was this cold in San Francisco it “hailed” an inch. It was the scarriest and raddest moment of 2005 though for sure. I was driving, which was terrifying but once we reached the coffee shop we were going to we had hail ball fights and watch Muni breakdown.

It snowed in the central valley the other day! Here’s hoping for a white holiday season.

A girl can dream can’t she.

Holiday Garland!!!

I love garland. There are always endless possibilities, and there’s nothing like enjoying the fruits of your labor once it’s strewn all over your house. I haven’t decided which one I will be making yet, too many to choose from.

Gift Ideas for Moms

Aveda’s Caribbean Rejuvenation Kit

I am a serious Aveda enthusiest and I can even tell you how much I love the Caribbean Therapy line. It has a slight hint of coconut and leaves you skin feeling wonderful. Buy online or at and Aveda Experience Center.

Kindle Wireless Reader

A wireless reading device thats about the size of a hardcover book. My mother in law has been coveting this baby for some time now. It’s pricey but eco friendly and just plain cool. Check it out at Amazon.

Vases by Jonathan Adler

Mom’s love flowers. Jonathan Adler’s vases make flowers look even more beautiful. See where I’m going with this. They range from $26 to $700. But don’t be fooled by the price, the less expensive are equally as pretty and well made. Check it.

Shesham Stacking Wine Rack

Just plain adorable. Crate and Barrell.
