Onward: I have to share this with you because it was literally the first day ever I did this- I always say I'm going to do this but then things come up and before you know it I'm showered and ready to go. Well yesterday I was determined to do absolutely nothing for the whole day but lounge and spend time on me. And I did! It was the best day too- you might think it was boring but it was so nice to just do nothing!

I woke up yesterday and lounged in PJ's and had two cups of tea and breakfast with my parents, made a quick run to the movie store, and then laid in bed all day till dinner painting my nails, drawing in my sketch book, and watching movies with the dogs. I watched "The Other Boleyn Girl", "Vanity Fair", and "No Reservations". I then had a yummy dinner and spent the evening watching the football game. I suggest that you all do this once in a while! It was much needed and it was great to recenter and spend some much needed quality time with my pup. She loved it- four feather down blankets, multiple pillows, and food all over the bed- her dream come true! But now I'm back to reality of work and 6am wakeup and showers.
You know what brightens my day? Sparkles! I'm addicted :) It can be a ring or a necklace, a skirt or shirt, or a little bling on my bra- I always have to have a little sparkle in my day. And now I want to introduce you to Gryphon. Her clothes are so unique and beautiful- not everything sparkles but these few items caught my eye this morning:
From Top (L-R) to Bottom (L-R): (Metal Sequin Tank; The Sequin Shorts; The Sequin Strip Mini Dress; Sequin Blouson Jacket)

Gryphon's designer is Aimee Cho who is a former Fashion Writer for Vogue Magazine, where she worked for 6 years. Cho gives classic pieces new life with a romantic yet strong touches. She once said: "Your clothes should never be too precious. I believe in special-occasion clothes worn in an everyday way." Jane and Judy Aldridge from Atlantis Home and Sea of Shoes recently collaborated with Gryphon on a trench for the Spring 2010 Line and I am loving every detail of this coat! Especially the little pouch on the front! This coat would be great for the upcoming spring showers :)
