Reason to celebrate.

Great snow in Whistler, and will only get better according to the forecast. The first two pictures were taken from the the new Peak 2 Peak lift that joins Whistler peak to Blackcomb. I've now been on it twice and it still scares me. 
Had a delicious dinner at the Skelly's house last night and it was lovely to meet the other half of their blog, Alexa. 
Haven't quite decided how to celebrate tonight. But for all those across the ocean back in La Suisse, 
Happy New Year!
Gros bisous. 


La joie.

So, the kick off to the holidays have been fun! Nice to be back with the family and a white Christmas was lovely. First day on the slopes today and man am I ever exhausted! We jumped in the hot tub right after a well deserved apres ski beer and I feel like I could go straight to bed. 
Cousin Heather and family were meant to arrive on Christmas day but thanks to this crazy weather their flights were cancelled! They should hopefully get up here Sunday night!


It never snows in Vancouver,

Liked these photos. Thought I would share. 
Maybe it was a silly idea to go out to a party in Brooklyn the night before my long flight. I have been napping all weekend to catch up on sleep! Finals week was brutal, hence the lack of posts, but we all made it through alive. 
Hope everyone's break is going well. Send me some news.
kiss, D
P.s. was slightly shocked to arrive to the biggest snowfall in Vancouver in 30 years. Hope some more makes it up to Whistler soon - could use a bit more up here on the slopes!


Just have to pack.

Found this picture on another site. Thought it was wonderful as it is the exact day I arrived and signed in at the Parsons building in New York City. 
Now there's just one more day of the semester and I am headed to Whistler at 4:30 AM on Saturday! 
Oh speaking of which, was a little spooked to read the story about the pole collapsing on that gondola in Whistler. Oh well, nothing will keep me from the slopes, it's been too darn long!
kiss, D 


Sixteen candles.

It's 1 AM in London, meaning my crazy little sister, Margot, is sixteen years old today! First year I'm not there to celebrate with her, but luckily I shopped all weekend and have a gift to give her first thing this weekend. 
Big kisses across the ocean. 
P.S. I dedicate this song to you.


If you have some spare time.

Go see Milk at the theatre if you want to see one hell of a movie and hear the incredible story of Harvey Milk.
Makes you wonder when this country is going to wake up and realise that it is unacceptable that in 31 states it is still legal to be fired for being gay. 
Check out the trailer here, I hope you dig.


If you seek Amy tonight.

Oh, we should maybe turn the flash on?

P.S. today, Tyler found some stellar vintage brown tap shoes for a steal of a deal and I snagged these pants for 10 bucks! I would feel bad, but I also bought my Mom her Christmas gift today, so my sins were cancelled out - math says so!


Hang in there.

Jeff Wall, Insomnia
Final projects are almost over.
P.S. Jeff Wall is possibly my favourite photographer. You'll be seeing more soon.
kiss, D


Oh so silly.

Beverage of Choice.

I am planning a come back tour! It'll be great! I have new photos and a lot to talk to about! I want to apologize for not being so up to date as my little Danielle has.  Give me just a little bit more time! Everything is going great! I have a lot of new news and just things to express to you guys =] I hope all is well with everyone
Just a quick update to our night tonight: A nice chill night doing some design homework with my girl Leighanna! Then the boyfriend and our girl Laura came over for a nice little night of hangout time.  Now its come down to Danielle, Scott, Daniel, Laura and myself =] its been a truly great night here at 20th street. I haven't had one in a while. Stay tuned ya'll.

Sobe Energy Drink.
A yumayuma lick, yumayumahaaaaaaa. 


Warm and toasty.

I even threw in some scented candles for you Brodes.

A special talent.

So I decided to show my best pal, Hillary, polyvore.com so that she could waste her life away like the rest of us do. Obviously her artwork is far too complex and is beyond comprehension to us mere humans. 
I hope you still love me. 
bisous bisous.

Oh heyyyyy there.

This lady does the best Sarah Palin impression hands down. 
And she's a beauty to boot!


Head, wear.

3D class always generates some fun creations. My pal Blair made the beautiful head piece I am sporting out of copper wire and a great amount of time and patience. I put her in my head piece made from some straws I bought at the dollar store and some gold wire. 
Wine calls! Happy weekend everyone. 
kiss, D.


Me? Mosa?

So yes, Mimosa by l'Occitane (yes that french soap shop), is my one true love. Apparently they have stopped running the product which has left me gutted and terrified of the day my last bottle runs out. Oh, I am prepared to spend large sums of money over the internet to get my hands on another dose.

Anyway, I learned a pretty coincidental piece of information today. Pantone has just released that Mimosa is their 2009 colour of the year. Hooray! Look who's "hip and with it." Plus I like any form of yellow on the runway. Gives me the summer gitters!

kiss, D.


A bit of this would be nice.

Wishlist? Maybe. Bored in class? Definitely.
P.S. that perfume has been the secret to my happiness for four years strong. 
Kiss, D

Quick fix.

It was nice to have a little break from the busy school routine. I was pleased, after a long journey, to arrive at the new home in London which is just as cozy as it looks through the Skype webcam. It was almost too comfortable as I plopped myself down on the couch and barely wanted to move the whole visit. A couple expeditions were made around the city but nothing major. It was great to see some old friends and have a night out to the English pub down the road where we were lucky enough to watch a pretty hoppin' Spice Girls impersonator group, (oh my).
Thanks for a relaxing weekend. 
kiss, D



Where are you? 
Get yourself on a plane and come home to me. 
I miss you!
