Last year, Matt got showshoes for me for Christmas and we finally got to go out yesterday. It was so lovely outside in the middle of the forest and surrounded by snow. Indy had such a wonderful time too. I think she felt right at home and we let her run around on her own for a little while. She is of course, much faster than we are in the snow. We were only holding her back:
Indy was very distracted and only wanted to go play.
Indy hears something...
"Must bury my face!"
"Must bury my face, again!"
"I see something!"
"I'm a happy dog!"
Whew! Tiring but so much fun... until next weekend!

I was hoping to get a new sparkling belt up but I just ran out of time. So sorry! I will have it up this weekend or by Monday for sure.

I didn't realize the first Holiday Headband was going to sell out so quickly! I have more to list tomorrow. Not sure how many I'll have time to list, but check back here and I'll post an update. :)
Oh! And there will be a brand new dazzling bridal belt... stay tuned!
I have to mix it up at times and release some creative energy using different mediums. I just finished a little painting for the Etsy shop. It is part of the Twigs & Honey "Haven" collection that I have been neglecting for too long. The piece is hand painted and embellished with vintage leaves, silk flowers, and other bits. It comes framed in a shadow box style frame. Perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. Enjoy!

Elizabeth Messina has a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l family. I always love seeing her gorgeous girls photographed in the most beautiful way that only Elizabeth could do. Earlier this month, it was her precious Jasmine's birthday (happy be-lated birthday!). I love these photos of her in all her cuteness:

And yes... she's wearing a twigs & honey hat in the middle picture... and yes, that is her on my website homepage. I can't get enough of her and you can see more on kiss the groom blog.
I talk with the hubby sometimes about how we wonder what our kids will look like in the future. Matt hopes that they get my skin (tans, doesn't burn) and my dark, thick hair... I hope they get Matt's big green/blue eyes and height. We're both hoping they get Matt's fast twitch muscles (he was a hurdler) and my endurance (I ran distance) so that we could have the most awesome 800m track star. Aw... we shall see. ;)
A fun piece that would be oh, so much fun to wear to a holiday party... or it could make a great present:
I've visited the Jetsetter branch of Gilt Groupe a few times and it really makes me want to plan a romantic getaway with the hubby. I know... we just got back from Istanbul, but that was traveling and exploring... not relaxing. Next trip we go on, I want to kick my feet up and relax with my honey. There are some very good lodging deals on Jetsetter. Luxury hotels with deep discounts. Still spendy, but if you're going to splurge, might as well get the discount. If you're more into splurging on travel than clothes, Jetsetter might be the ticket for you. Here are some current sales:
Hotel de Crillon in Paris
The Lodge at Torrey Pines, Southern California
Some upcoming sales:
I think this would be a great place to get deals on romantic getaways for special occasions, a honeymoon, anniversary... or just to escape. I'm telling the hubby. *wink*

Visit Cinebarre. Matt and I went last weekend on opening night. It is located in the old Regal theater next to the Salem Mall in the downtown. They have a handfull of locations around the U.S., and I was surprised that they would pick Salem, OR of all places. We had been frequenting "another" theater down the road from us for the dining theater experience, but Cinnebarre is the newer, flashier version. So far, we've had a great experience... Good food, good service, clean theater. You can order from your seat, so you don't have to climb over people in the dark to get a drink refill or dessert. Last week, we watched The Fourth Kind, and my only gripe was that the sound was really quiet. They have some vegetarian options on the menu, which is nice too! Anyhow, we'll be visiting tonight for 2012. See you there? Or another time, yes?

It's been a little while since I did a Gilt Groupe post! If you haven't heard of it, Gilt Groupe is a great place to get huge discounts on designer brands. I love great fashion, but either don't have the funds or feel so guilty buying expensive apparel so Gilt Groupe is perfect for me! You need to be invited and can join HERE. You can also build credits by inviting your friends and after their first purchase. I've gotten amazing discounts on Hunter boots ($26!), Lauren Moffatt, Paige Premium Denim, Anlo, Banfi Zambrelli, and more. Aw~ a guilt free way to indulge in my guilty pleasures. Friday, there will be a Monique Lhuillier sale and on Sunday, Carolina Herrera. Enjoy!
Did anyone get a chance to watch the Martha Stewart segment last week with Shabd Simon-Alexander? I love everything Shabd creates. Her tie dye is the best. Plus, her Martha Stewart segment shows you how to make your own tie dyed leggings. I can't wait to try it out! View the instructions HERE.
