Suitcase: A Hawaiian Holiday.

December 16, 2011

I can’t believe how quickly the Holidays have arrived. I’m even a little ashamed to admit that I’ve skipped everything festive this season.  It’s been a rather chaotic Autumn and to be frank, I’m just grateful to escape to Paradise come Boxing Day! The thought of a beach has me splurging on a few Springlike additions – including some sporty items. The bf and I have planned an active few weeks, though lazy afternoons reading sound wonderful too. What are your holiday plans? x

Swimsuits For All Occasions.

May 4, 2010

Every Spring I convince myself that if I work out really hard for the next 2 months I’ll look fabulous in my bikini -And even though I’ve been spinning for a month already, I know patio season will sway me into après work drinks in no time. Which is why I think a woman should have a variety of swimsuits in her closet -because sometimes you’re  just not feeling the frilly white barely there bikini!

My parents were never ones who fled south for the holidays (more like skiing vacations!)- but I have a feeling that may change as they grow older. As I peruse the 2010 Resort Collection, I’m hopeful that day will come soon… But I’ll still love the snowy nights at home by the fire.

Beautiful Eres.

July 31, 2009

I fell in love with the bronze version of this Eres swimsuit below… The hefty price tag (in Euros!) made me walk Les Galleries Lafayette for close to an hour before I finally broke down and bought it. No regrets, but I’ll be wearing this baby for years to come!


Eres also sells a beautiful collection of lingerie… See below!
