Bundle Up!


Good Tuesday morning, lovelies! Easing back into the swing of things. Is it just me or do the first few days back after vacation seem to be the longest? And burrr it is so cold outside! I was welcomed back to NYC by some flurries yesterday and I'm actually feeling a little bit under the weather. Talk about a harsh reality check!

How is your week going so far? If I haven't stopped by your place yet, I apologize that I'm taking a little longer than usual. I'll definitely be by soon!

Have a fabulous day! xoxo

Lovely pics to get in the mood for Christmas. Yes, it can be a culture shock returning to reality after holidays (especially if returning from the paradise you went to!. Even when I have to return to Spain, where the weather is lovely, it's still difficult.

Katie said...

The first few days after vacation are tough, so take it easy!

Your photo reminded me to enjoy the moment....and the snow that is falling down upon us today. Thanks.

Gorgeous photos- I am always so inspired by you! I imagine it's extra hard to get back into the swing of things when you've been somewhere so glorious and then you have to come back to winter and the rush of the holidays- I say you go out and buy yourself some gorgeous outerwear so that you feel better about bundling up in the cold- a little retail therapy of sorts:) xoxo

Haute World said...

I don't mind a little snow as long as it isn't windy and too dreary. It must be quite an adjustment after your vacay! Love all your holiday pics by the way... looks like you had a wonderful time :)

honey my heart said...

my week is going well, but i'm already ready for the weekend :) hope you feel better, dawn!

Sarah Klassen said...

My week is going quite well so far -- thank you! a little behind on my Christmas shopping, but am looking forward to spending the entire day tomorrow gathering presents for those I love. SO much fun... and by the way, can you send the snow to Vancouver? We had just a light dusting, and that was a few weeks ago, and that is all -- I would love to see a white Christmas* lovely images, as always... rest up as much as you can, lovely lady!

xx,
Sarah

These snowy images are so beautiful. I love the first snow fall as much as the kids do. We didn't get even a snow flake in Boston but it is so freezing, the only thing that can warm me are your Carribean photos ...

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

I can almost feel the snowflakes on my cheeks and smell the fresh smell of winter from staring at these images. Beautiful! And your Carribean photos -- make me want to hop a plane! Sorry you're under the weather. I was too when I came back from travelling over Thanksgiving and it kind of knocked me down for most of the week, but all's better now. Because of that I've been soooo busy and it's so good to finally catch up on my favorite blogs. Welcome back, sweetie. xoxo

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Glad your back! i was a little under the weather when we returned back from PR too. maybe all the rich foods and cocktails take their toll and our bodies don't reveal it until we're back.

Nell said...

Oh my, that second picture is complete perfection. xx

Dlife said...

the one with the light and snow is very inspiring picture.
