Karl Lagerfeld Update:

I've been watching and waiting for the Karl Lagerfeld line to hit the store. I've been so wrapped up into Valentine's Day that I missed the date. The clothing line has arrived and most items that were featured online has sold out in just a few days.  I am glad I picked up a few items during the holidays at a very very reduced price! There seems to be mixed comments on Karl's line. I wondered whether his line would be a mixture of Karl and a hint of Chanel, but what we are seeing is all "Karl". Google in Karl Lagerfeld to view his new line...

V-Day Pampering...

This Valentine's Day treat yourself or loved one to a special treat. Have a morning chocolate bath prepared for your sweetheart to enjoy with a mimosa, pink towels and a robe on hand. A chocolate bath is a guilt free calorie indulgence of chocolate. No need to count calories here...

Milk Chocolate Bath Recipe

1 cup powdered milk
1/8 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender, if desired
Mix all ingredients in small bowl. Add to running bath water. Makes 1 large bath.

Spring Ahead: A look at this year's spring fashion...

 While still waiting the arrival of Karl Lagerfeld's clothing line due this month in January, let's look at Chanel's spring, ready to wear collection that came out a few months back. For those of you who haven't seen the 2012 spring collection here are a few pics of what was featured...

The stage was set to look like things found in the ocean like massive sea shells and bubbles, shells for purses and of course pearls.



Chanel Blush

Love these looks, especially the pastel colors such as the pinks, whites and blues. Spring is our favorite season and the colors remind us so much of spring. Love!
