Main Attraction: Sweden's ICEHOTEL

For someone like myself who is most ungrateful towards Winters bounty, I have been strangely attracted to Sweden and all of its wonders. Most namely the Northern lights and the ICEHOTEL. 

Located in the little town of Jukkasjärvi far north of the Arctic Circle, the ICEHOTEL is built from scratch by different artists each year. Saying that the process is complex would be an understatement. It is truly a labor of Love.

This year, artists from 15 countries, including Argentina, Estonia, Spain, Italy, Norway and the Netherlands will build the ICEHOTEL. The entire process is quite remarkable and is described in full here.

ICEHOTEL: Entrance 2010/2011
There is something magical about a country that has an outdoor light show and a Hotel made of Ice. And I'm not the only one that thinks that way. Many people decide not only to visit the ICEHOTEL but to wed there as well. This year the Ice Church at the ICEHOTEL will open its doors to guests and wedding parties alike on December 25th.

Artist/s: Anders Rönnlund, Anders Eriksson & Johan Fremling
Ice Church: Kyrka
The 2010/2011 artists, Anders Rönnlund, Anders Eriksson and Johan Fremling, were inspired by the simple and rustic medieval churches that are found in South Sweden in the creation of the Ice Church shown above.

Thanks for the memories

11.24.2011

I love dancing. I grew up in a home where dancing was an everyday event. I can still see my mom dancing around to Tom Jones's "Whats new pussycat" while making supper. My dad, ever the charmer, was no slouch either. He could do the foxtrot like there was nobody's business. 

The dancing is one of the things I miss the most about my youth and so in the spirit of being thankful, mom, dad, thanks for the wonderful memories. I miss you both. 

And to you my readers, I offer you my favorite dance - The Tango.

Laura, I dedicate this picture to you........happy dancing!

The Wonderful World of C. Wonder

Does the idea of personalized service without the price appeal to you? Can you imagine a store with dressing rooms that have customizable lighting and music along with an intercom so that you don't have to leave the dressing room to get another size? Would you like luxury goods without the price tag? 

If you said yes to any of the above then you are ready for the world of C. Wonder. Here is a peek at their new shop in Soho, NYC.

Wrinkle Eraser

11.16.2011

One of my clients told me about "Frownies" when I commented on how youthful she looked for her age. She is a makeup artist and had been using them forever. Lucky her as although she was approaching 40 she really looked more like 30. Now that's something to get excited about!  Seems like they were a trick of the trade but no more!    Now it's our turn!    Readers...I bring you Frownies!

In vintage packaging

Now be sure to order them and let me know how it goes. I'm going to get a pack as well (not sure where to start - so many wrinkles so little time!) and we'll compare notes!
