Leap Year

'Leap Year,' the latest romantic movie set in Ireland and starring redhead Amy Adams, has received the most horrendous reviews since 'Year One.' The plot was unbearably predictable (I guessed pretty much all the lines before they were uttered) and the snail pace beginning left me bored and confused.

However the minute Leap Year arrived in Ireland, despite all the expected visual gags and turns, I couldn't help but become filled with a deep redhead longing to live upstairs in a Pub and amongst Ireland's breathtaking rustic beauty. I loved the cozy bed and breakfasts, the rocky terrains, and actor Matthew Goode's surly but brogue-ishly handsome 'Declan' was a pleasure to look at and listen to. Made me want to run around and outfit every man on the street in wooly jumpers (British speak for sweaters) and brown corduroy trousers....

Lanvin Pompon PM Cabas Tote

This Cherise Red nylon and ribbon pom pom tote by Lanvin is nothing short of amazingly pretty, frilly, and flirty, and of course I am in love with the red and pink colors. My love for Lanvin's designs runs very deep, but $1,435.00 for nylon and ribbon? I know, I know, we're paying that much to look Parisian chic, and that's priceless!

Lanvin pre-Fall 2010

Lanvin's pre-Fall collection is filled with animal prints, fur, jeweled embroideries, and delicious accessories. I'm also loving the art gallery-like presentation. Tres artistic!

Lipstick Queen-Chinatown

I just came across these innovatively fun 'Chinatown' Glossy Pencils by Australian Poppy King's Lipstick Queen line. These "Gloss in a jumbo-sized pencils," come with a jumbo-sized sharpener, and the original artwork and shade names are all inspired by Roman Polanski's film 'Chinatown.' Available at

CHANEL Haute Couture Spring 2010

Karl Lagerfeld's vision for Spring Couture was visibly all about silver and soft-hued tones. Every single detail, from pipings to buttons to signature fingerless gloves, down to the avant garde leather shoes, swam in liquid silver.
