Santa’s Got a Beard That’s Long an White… Wait!

This has to be one of the oddest, smartest, cutest, weirdest, unique ways to keep his precious face warm this winter. Check out Etsy’s Laura Design take on a hat and beard. Kinda adorable in a log cabin kind of way. There’s also ones for your adult lumberjack of a a man.


Stella Fills the Gap!

Design is not just for four walls and a garden. Of course not. We all know it’s infiltrated our lives and dictates how we live in an unsurmountable number of ways. One way design has impressed me is through clothing – for kids!! My niece has become the epitome of a fashion icon baby (thanks to her doting and fashionable Thea Nicole and Yaya Lisa). Its awesome. Just a young two year old toddler and she inspects her day and evening wear threads as if its her job. She makes the perfect model to boot. So when my sister sent me a link to Gap’s new baby clothing line from Stella McCartney, I was smitten. Are you kidding me? I love it all! As someone who loathes fairy tale and Disney characters imprinted across children’s clothing, this new adorable line of the perfect childhood summer pieces, nautical-bohemian-edgy-feminine-esque dresses, tops, ankle zip pants, jackets, and dresses, fills that open gap with better looking apparel for tots. What do you think? Stella… thank you thank you thank you!

Ski Bunny.

I’m off to Steamboat in mid-January for a ski adventure that’s been a long time waiting! Aside from the exercises I need to do between now and the day I snap those boots tight, I had to assess my ski gear situation to see what still fit and what I had to go out and buy. In preparation for this four day adventure, I pulled out my old stuff, tried everything on, and immediately exclaimed “I need a new jacket and pants – these are huge and so dated”. So, the shopping junky that I am, the search was on for some cute apparel that was neither black nor too baggy. I went to the local Dicks Sporting store and Sports Authority. Found a nice white jacket by the cold weather apparel company Spyder (love that line) and a pair of glossy white goggles by Scott. Then I hunted online for coordinating ski pants at Peter Glenn and I Ski Shop. I just got a blue pair in the mail from, and although they are a little baggy, I think I can deal – the weather is going to be chilly and the last thing I need is frostbite! The adorable result? Check out my new look (thanks to my mom for giving me such a cool Christmas gift!). I hope these pieces are as attractive on a black diamond slope in five years as they will look in January in Colorado! Swoosh SWOOSH!

Love this fun hat!

A sleek profile with glossy white frame. So cool!

Tried this one at Dicks and had to buy it! SO warm!

I have a small frame so I swim in ski pants - however, these are too cute to boot!

White jacket needs waterproof white gloves.

Ergonomic and lightly padded ski socks. Hope these keep painful shins away!

Just a Thought.
