2/25/10 - Luzern

2/25/10 - Luzern
I took this picture outside of the train station in Luzern. Luzern has to be one of my favorite cities ever and I'm so lucky to be living so near to it (and hopefully in it soon!). It's beautiful - a photographers dream...well, this photographers dream, anyway =) Now that the weather is warmer I can't wait to spend days there with my camera!

Olivia and The Sartorialist

 
Olivia P. from The City made the Sartorialist. I know she's kind of bitchy on the show, but she's so fun to look at - I think she's gorgeous. Should I be watching the City...or The Hills? Should I love Lauren Conrad? Should I be jealous of Whitney? I don't know :)

Funny article with the 20 funniest figuring skating faces =)

Feather headboard

 
This headboard featured by Apartment Therapy makes me happy - it makes me sleepy happy...I'm now on the hunt for feather material! 
Isn't Apartment Therapy amazing?
Isn't it hard to keep up with? At one time I had 1,000+ entries from it in my reader, yikes!

so so pretty!

The Lovelist, I have neglected  you for the past few days :( But, I have cleaned out my reader and went on some escapades so I think I have enough material to make my blog happy this week =) or tonight...what would you do if you looked and had like, 18 or so entries from this blog?! do you guys use a Reader? I don't know how I could read as many blogs as I do without one!
Anyway, on to this gorgeous necklace...it's $140 which would take me awhile to talk myself in to buying...but gosh, it's stunning :)
You can find it on ColbyJune's Etsy shop, along with many other pretty pieces...

Tote

It's quite possible I might be adding in this UO tote to go with my coin purse...I've liked it for the last few months and now it's on sale! Perfect for traveling around with, right?!

Itstartswith.us

Monday, February 8, 2010


I just wanted to pass on a really inspiring online organization that I learned about from Emily Jane - called ItStartsWith.Us - I couldn't help but get wrapped up in its coolness after I started reading about it! From what I understand you'll be emailed one "mission" per week...whether it's writing a comment on a blog that one of the members found of someone who is having a hard time or sending someone a letter...easy!
Here's their blog

"The goal of ItStartsWith.Us is to build a global community of individuals focused on making a positive impact in the lives of the people around them.
Each and every one of us has the ability to change the world by touching lives in this way. And when we hear stories about the positive things others are doing, we become more aware of the opportunities we have to make a difference for the people around us."

Under My Umbrella-ella! (sorry, I had to!)

Saturday, February 6, 2010


I LOVE the rain. I love it. If I had the choice, I'd rather have a rainy day =) (don't hate). Of course, if it's rainy for 2 weeks I might look forward to the sun. Maybe it's why I love umbrella's. In fact, I just ordered the cutest ever umbrella from Urban Outfitters and a visitor schlepped it all the way over here from the US and I left it on the bus! After only my 2nd time using it!!! After I told 2 people with me to not let me forget it!!!!!! (ok deep breath) So it's back to my huge orange one (courtesy of the Insurance office - be jealous) until I can scout out the perfect umbrella. Here are some from Gilt Fuse that I'm loving. Have you heard of this website? It has luxury designers and fashion brands at prices up to 70% off retail. If you need an invite leave your email and I'll send you one!

funny valentine..s and a question...

Friday, February 5, 2010




I'm all for the sentimental stuff, I'm not going to lie...but getting one of these cards from KuroCo's Etsy shop would make me laugh!

And also, I have 2 questions...
1. What would be your perfect Valentine's day gift this year?
2. What are you getting/doing for your significant other this year?

If you celebrate V-day - Email me (asweetblog at the gmail) or leave a comment - I'd love to make a list and blog it! I'm sure we can get ideas from eachother =)

Man on Wire & Let the Great World Spin

Thursday, February 4, 2010


"Man on Wire" was one of the most memorable documentaries that I've seen.  It was moving to watch a man carry out a dream that he had been so passionate about since he was a young boy....If you are in to documentaries I would recommend it.
I then stumbled across a book called "Let the Great World Spin" that centers around this story but digs a little deeper to the twin emotions of love and loss. This is going on my reading list - for sure =)


Heavy Heart



This video made my heavy heart melt =)

I've had my eye on this bag (they have it in black, brown and grey too) for some time. Do I dare order it for $240? I, who has purse ADD? I tell myself that I'm growing up now and am starting to become attracted to quality things; specifically purses, and that it's time to stop buying any cheap purse that strikes my fancy every other month...but I suspect that the purse crush part of my brain could be playing a trick on me...I can't decide...
What color would you choose?

Thrift Switzerland

Hallways

Monday, February 1, 2010



(images via Desire to Inspire)

I think these hallways are put together so nicely. I have a long hallway that is in need of some decorating - but it is so hard to incorporate the styles that I have learned to love from all of the amazing decorating blogs I read in to my contemporary Swiss apartment...they are all about modern this and modern that and it's hard to go vintage with floor to ceiling windows, black granite kitchen and the massive amount of space (I know that sounds awful doesn't it)...but seriously...I'm having a hard time decorating and making our apartment feel like home...I suppose it will eventually come around :) 

Alphabet rings

It seems like I must be going through a ring phase :)
but these are so dainty and i could see stacking them with the initials of the one you love and the heart...

This blog.

I'm starting this blog anew and fresh.
You can read through the old one here.
I know my header looks weird...
and the video below is messed up...
but i will get it together!
