My New Favorite Show. Evah.

A few weeks ago I discovered this gem of a TV show called Downton Abbey. If you're about my age, you should remember Upstairs, Downstairs, another amazing English show. I used to watch it religiously with my godmother, and I loved it.

So, to fill the space left by Upstairs, Downstairs, I found Downton Abbey. The story is just wonderful, the photography, writing and costumes are to die for and it has something for everyone.

I got seriously hooked and watched both seasons and the crazy good Christmas special in about a week. Of course now I'm jonesing for season 3, which starts in September.

Listen to your friendly neighborhood blogger and watch this show asap. You can thank me later by sending me praising e-mails, flowers and chocolate. Ha!

Have a lovely day, my peeps.

In love.

Just a little post to share this amazing find with my fellow hand cream addicts. I wash my hands a million times a day which makes my poor hands super dry. I cannot stand that feeling so I'm a hand cream aficionado. Always looking for the next great one.

This Christmas I found this gem in my sister's bedroom. She had gotten it as a present and I had to go and get mine asap.

It's Crabtree & Evelyn's India Hicks Hand Therapy. Lawd, it's good! It not only moisturizes my skin but it smells absolutely delicious. It comes in a nice, big vintagey metal tube and I'm a sucker for cool packaging.

To make it even better I got mine in a HUGE sale. Score! God, I'm a dork...

If you love hand cream like moi, give this one try. You will adore it.

Toodles, loves.

Tired. So, so tired.

I wanted to start the year better than I did the last, but the stars do not seem to want to align in my favor no matter how hard I try.

As those of you who read this blog regularly know, my emotional state is a big part of my creativeness. I hope it wasn't, cause life has been kicking me in the ass for a long time and I take advantage of what little periods of peace I have here and there to let my creative self come out.

(not the guy, just a little protection form the rain....)

It hasn't happened in a while now, and so, my scrapping, my blog, my work suffers. No matter how hard I try to push everything else aside and lose myself in Photoshop or find cool things to blog about, I just can't do it to save my life.

It's really very frustrating. Frustrating as hell.

I try hard to see some good in things, to roll with the punches but it's been too long and I think I'm losing my ability to deal. I'm just little ole me and it's been too much already.

I really love blogging, and doing so about things that whomever reads my blog will like and find interesting, but it just ain't happenin'.  Alas...

But, I don't really have a choice in the matter, so I'll keep trying to dig myself out of this hole I find myself in at the moment, so maybe soon, I can go back to feeling like myself, to feeling happy, to having peace.

Guess this post is a bit like Seinfeld... About nothing in particular.

Wish me luck?

2012... Bring. It. On!

This is going to be a tough year, but I know that at the end of the tunnel there will be more light than there has ever been in mine and Nati's lives.

So, 2012, I say to you, bring it on, baby... I'm ready for ya.

Since I'm all bold and stuff, I thought I should start this year with a bold new design for NSV. I hope y'all like it as much as I do.

Here's hoping you all have a great year. I know I'm gonna try my best to make it a super duper one.

Toodles, loves.
