Today I'm excited because Valentine's Day has arrived and I can't wait to be surrounded by flowers, sweets and hearts galore. My house is filled with the smell of roses, irises and orchids, all in full bloom. Tonight I plan on making a spaghetti dinner with homemade marinara, homemade meatballs and a pear walnut salad. For dessert, pink and red cupcakes. Happy Love Day! <3

If I had to choose one iconic place to rule them all, it would be Tiffany & Co. The door is like the gateway to Camelot and something magical happens upon entering this enchanting place. I recently came across a print ad for Tiffany & Co, which inspired me to create this post. The ad was simple, clean and spoke a thousand words through one little blue box. Classic. I sense a room redesign in the near future.

Amidst a lazy stroll through Claremont, I stumbled upon a store that is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The Little Dress Shop is a quaint boutique filled with handmade jewelry, cute little dress and unique accessories. I couldn't help but try on a few dresses while I browsed some pretty accessories, all made by local jewelry makers. My favorite finds include a stunning peacock cuff bracelet, some elaborate vintage-looking headbands and bracelets made of vintage buttons. I have a feeling gift shopping is going to be a cinch in 2011.
