My Top 10 Obsessions Right Now

1.)    Thigh high boots.  They make you look stylish and keep you warm in the winter……especially with cashmere socks or tights. Here’s a pair for a decent price http://goo.gl/8nGs

2.)    Horizontal stripes in any room.  Looks good with modern or classic décor and livens up any space. Check out http://goo.gl/lhS0

3.)    Nespresso espresso machine.  The best  tasting espresso from the least expensive and easiest to use machine-pure luxury. Watch the old commercial with George Clooney-and yes the nespresso Café’s are this awesome inside http://goo.gl/3fHF

4.)    Vitamin B12 (There is a reason athletes get injections of B12……it gives you serious energy, and there is nothing more stylish than energy that won’t quit)

5.)    Florence and the Machine.  Her music is sure to put you in a good mood. Check out her website http://goo.gl/m5DS

6.)    The shopping website www.shopstyle.com (This is the ultimate website of style which will have you hooked after you start marking your favorites to add to your stylebook……the ultimate online wishlist)

7.)    Skinceutical’s gentle facial cleanser.  Gentle cleanser that has a completely unobtrusive scent http://goo.gl/nKgb

8.)    Creed Millesime Imperial.  Yes It’s insanely expensive, but I’ve had the same bottle for the past two years and it’s the only perfume I’ve found that doesn’t give me a headache. Plus it will make you smell like royalty. http://goo.gl/vrTs

9.)    www.hulu.com (great site for watching tv on your computer……watch your fave shows whenever you want)

Thai Green Curry Salmon

1 can of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of green curry paste
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 red pepper
1 lime
Sprigs of basil cooked and as garnish

Simmer coconut milk, green curry, brown sugar, fish sauce, basil and red peppers until peppers are slightly tender.

Broil salmon separately. This sauce goes really nicely with chicken or beef as a substitute for the salmon. A splash of lime makes the salmon taste great.

Texmati rice or basmati rice are the perfect compliment.

I make this dish all the time because it’s super healthy and it tastes wonderful! And best of all it’s fast fast fast!

Denim

I’m already thinking about my next collection, and I’m looking forward to the warm weather whenever it may get here. I think spring is going to be very inspiring. I’m also hopeful about how the season change may affect the economy……..you never know.

I found a new process for softening denim, so I may be bringing jeans back into my next collection with some tops that are easy to wear and care for. Denim has become a bit of an obsession of mine, but I’m
still learning about it, and I I have one style that I’ve been developing for awhile. I’ve improved the fit over time, and with each new draft of the pattern I find I am closer to achieving my idea of the “perfect” jean. Yes, the perfect jean.

The style I am developing is a straight legged jean which I find elongates the body with it’s close fit (but the straight lines give more of an illusion of height than a skinny jean). I think this style is very versatile because it can be worn with boots, or heels, or even more casual shoes. Pocket size and placement of course are very key elements, and I felt satisfied with what I came up with, but I try to keep an open mind, and I never know what adjustments will be final.
