Beautiful Faberge egg bags

Enamel egg bags from Chanel's pre-fall collection

Faberge eggs are back in fashion and they are more beautiful then ever! I tried to find an affordable faberge (if that 'affordable' even fits with the word faberge) Im warning you though once you see these ones they can get addictive. Some affordable faberge eggs are mostly on necklaces so if your a budget babe ClickHere. I am so inlove with faberge eggs. (Want to learn more about these gorgeous creations be sure to check out "Faberge's Eggs: The Extraordinary Story of the Masterpieces That Outlived an Empire". So check them out!

Try these amazing faberge egg styled lockets from Amazon (I love them! There not really the 'real deal' but anything faberge is amazing!)

New Years Resolution 2# Get Organised!

Getting totally organised and balancing fun with work can be a pain in the butt but it allways pays off, it gets easier especially when you have all of your stationary, diaries etc. So number two on my years resolution is get organised! Why you may ask? it is because organising your life is vital to survive those hard days when everything goes wrong. Heres a few examples-
Forgot where your keys are! wouldn't do that if your organised
Totally forgot about important assignment! would'nt do that if your organised
No time for fun! wouldn't do that if your organised.

So i went web surfing for some of the best buys to get myself super organised for 09'
All of the buys shown in Theobsession are available GLOBAL!

Being on the never ending rollercoaster of the economic crisis, long awaited presidential race, job market and the ruethless war(s) I am proud to announce my new year resoloution 1# as to 'Get some sleep!!' I know that if i wake up these things will probably still be around but atleast i'll be able to deal with it better. Sleep is essential and im the type of person who wakes up in the middle of the night for food, which is most likely a VERY bad habbit. After a good hour long sleep i'll feel energized and ready to get my but out to work without triping on the house (which i so did not do!) So thats why I mark number 1# on my new year resoloution as 'Get some sleep!!'.
I defiantly need a epic load of sleep, so before than im going to buy a new sleep mask for 2009.

A World In A Window...

Christmas Window Display in Tokyo, 2008

Christmas is the time where shops bring out their crazy unique and sometimes humorous window displays. Im not the kind of person who blurts out laughing at random things, only a few made me smile but atleast they were trying.. Virtual e-cards are ok but I just think that all the effort people put into their window displays are better than typing a few words to show your Christmas spirit. This year at my house it was like a chaos or should I just say "CAUTION CHRISTMAS OVERLOAD! FATAL! MEHAMEHAMEHAHMEHA" (The last part was my pathetic immitation of a warning siren) Im trying not to be too much of a grinch this season, so I dicided to create my own fun. Window Shoping Yay! Heres some of what I found.
