It's the end of 2011, can you believe it?  I almost can't. Millions of people around the world have already celebrated the start of 2012 with fireworks in Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific Islands like Samoa who by the way skipped Friday December 30 so that they could be 'closer' to their main trading partners..  

Later tonight, millions more will celebrate in Times Square and  at the Eiffel Tower...personally I'd love to celebrate the start of a new year in New York or Paris with my hubby one of these days.....  For now I'll be ringing in the new year at home with just a few friends and family members.  

Here's wishing you and yours and happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!

  How fabulous is this room?  Here's what I love about it: 
1. The pink pillows,  (have a pink thing going on right now)
1. Zebra accent chairs
3. Console table and mirror 
4. Neutral wall paint and white furniture
5. Chandelier

It's Tradewinds, a luxury villa located in Sandy Lane, Barbados.  Go here for more pictures and to book your stay.....Surely you can afford US$2500 per night in the low season...LOL

On another note, this Christmas season has been great but I'm exhausted.  We're hosting a small get-together  on Old Year's Night and I'm hoping to see some fireworks from a near-by resort.  I know we'll have a blast but I'm wondering how I'm going to get through the preparations...Right now I just feel like ordering some pizza and calling it a day!!..Need some prayers..

What ever you do to ring in the New Year, have fun and be safe!

I don't know about you but one of my favourite things about Christmas is the lights...Last year, we didn't really decorate but we put up lights in our bedroom....It was magical!

These past few days have been really busy but just looking at these pictures is enough to cheer me up.  Hope they cheer you up too.

Head over to House of Turquoise for the full details.

Happy Monday

No Monday blues for me today.  I woke up early, spent some time with God and I'm feeling perky and bright :)   

Port Elizabeth, Bequia 

Bequia is the largest of the Grenadine islands with a population of about 5,000.  If you've never been, December/January is a great time to visit.  You can catch their New year's Eve celebration and the Blues Fest in January with the likes of Dana Gillespie and the London Blues Band and Barbadian artistes Arturo Tappin and NEXCYX


Happy Monday

Santa's Elves have finally arrived at my office so I'm off to assist.....Two posts in one day?  Well I did say I was feeling festive!

Friday Fancies








It's the first Friday in December and I'm feeling festive!!!!!  Sequins are  all the rage this year and as one of my coworkers would say " Me Likey"...LOL.   One of the great things about blogging (esp since I don't really buy magazines) is being able to keep up with the trends so that I can keep up and stay current.  I found the first four pics via Lots of Sparkles on the berry.   The last three pics are from one of my blog friends and real-life friend Lesa Pea .  She's the one who turned me on to the sparkle trend and to say that she loves her some sparkle might be a little bit of an understatement.....Check out her Sparkle Guide and see for yourself.

I have a consultation with an interior designer this weekend and I. CAN'T WAIT.  The best part is that my hubby is the one who booked it...YAY!! 

Whatever you do this weekend, have yourself a good one.
