The Final Weeks

...are truly bittersweet.

 (click photos to enlarge)

Congratulations to my lovely (and abnormally attractive) friends on your sweet baby girl. I simply cannot wait to meet her. You both are such beautiful people, both inside and out, I expect to basically melt when I see your little creation.

Things That Tickle fancy as of late.

Clockwise from top left: Narciso Rodriguez For Her (It's like a white floral meets an exotic Egyptian goddess. Perfect for warm, balmy summer days and nights); Tom Ford Private Collection Tobacco Vanille (Uh, Tom Ford is a perfuming genius. Dark and warm and dead sexy. P.s. only the large 8 oz bottle is $500, mine is the smaller one and is actually $200, so don't get freaked out when you click on the link.) Montale Paris Patchouli Leaves (my signature scent and the most amazing thing in the world! Not even exaggerating on any level, EVERYTIME I wear this, someone stops me to ask what it is and where they can buy it. Of course, the moment I say the name and that you can purchase it at the Scent Bar or on, they immediately "shut down" cause its not a commercial fragrance with a familiar name. Oh well, more for me!!); Prada Amber (a truly gorgeous "throwback" era perfume. When I wear this I feel like I just stepped into a scene from Midnight In Paris. Enough said.

Skin care that could change your life. Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Peel Pads (i use them daily and SWEAR they have completely transformed my skin. AHHH-mazing). Natura Bisse Oxygen Cream.

A birthday gift from my favorite jewelry designer, Leyla of Frida and Marilyn. This is by far, hands down, my favorite necklace I own. Leyla custom made it just for me and absolutely everything about it screams me. All of her jewelry is absolutely gorgeous and you MUST check it out. You WON'T be disappointed you did :)

 Morning Star Incense in Rose.
My favorite incense that I burn all day everyday. Whenever someone comes into my house, after I've burned this lovely aroma, I always get told how wonderful it smells.

Parisian Chic, A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange
A little too perfect of a gift from one of my best friends Stacy Jacobsen. I have been obsessed with all things Parisian and the art of being Parisian and then this little number shows up on my door step. The funny part is, she had no idea of my current obsession! It was like FREAKISHLY dead on. She said she came across it in Anthropologie and said if anyone can be Parisian chic, it's Ann. A compliment and a lovely book, that's one fabulous combo!

Current obsession. To be drank all day, everyday, apparently. I make mine with Almond Milk, so I don't overload on the dairy ;)

The best gift I've ever received. My hubby made this for my birthday and let me tell you, it was just a wee bit awkward when I was reading it at the Inn of The Seventh Ray (my favorite restaurant, ever.), bawling my eyes out while people pretended not to notice. James wrote this book from Gavin's perspective, and it's just the sweetest thing I've ever seen. I don't deserve such a wonderful family. Really, I don't :)

These are just a few of my favorite things.

Hope you all have a very WONDERFUL weekend!

...the stars align and you know it's true that love can look as beautiful as it feels.
And Jake and Amanda are no exception.

 And here's the best part...they are as sweet and fun as they are beautiful. No kidding.

I'm so thrilled to be shooting their wedding in August, I sort of just wish it was here already. Won't Amanda make an absolutely stunning bride? Congrats to you both!

You can see more of their lovely photos on Style Me Pretty's Facebook page and even MORE here.

I've Got The Blues

...for shoes, that is.

blue heels with the bow, H&M. color blocked platforms, Vince Camuto.

I don't know what it is this season, but I am on board with the "color blocking" that seems to be taking over. Give me a royal blue on my shoe and I just might kiss you. I am doing a pretty good job so far of accumulating fabulously colorful shoes, now I just need to actually wear them.... anyone wanna take me to dinner?? 

Happy Spring and all the colors it brings!

Motherhood a beautiful

and exhausting endeavor.

2011 has come and gone. Fortunately, all the beautiful pictures remain. Many posts to come (yes, from 2011), but for now, this mamas working on playing catch up on work and life...and everything in between. I'm exhausted and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
