New Toy

Hi Lovers, right now I'm on vacation and promise myself not to blog, but I could not resist to show you guys my new camera, I been doing research for a month on what camera to get, Canon or Nikon ? I went for Nikon after reading all the web reviews and asking various photographers. I got the Nikon D3000 and so far it's amazing.
My budget was $500.00 but then of course I had to buy the camera bag, best buy warranty e.t.c
Here are some of my first pics. 

My new Orchid, Here I used the close up mode.

New Wallpaper 

My View, I used the Landscape mode which makes the blues and greens more brighter.
 I love sparkling wine

Just Playing

Lamps, Lamps, Lamps

Hi Guys, I have been super busy with school lately and did not have time to post. Sorry, promise to make it up.

A table lamp is considered a very important decor in a home. A color table lamps can add life to any boring room. Sometimes we buy lamps only for the lighting purpose of a room and not for the design. A nice table lamp can give ambiance to a room. Here are some of my favorites.

One of my favorites table lamps out there by Strand and Hyass. 
$699.00 Buy It 

Very Simple, but it has a hole in the bottom and you can put something unique like this seashell. Love it.

Color Me Yellow

Spring is here, and one way to renovate our closet it's to buy some pretty bright colors. I know that this spring is all about the cute pastel colors, but not for me. Bring on the yellow.

I really love things that I wear in the day and night, like this dress. 

I'm loving this jumper

Vivienne Westwood Heart Shoes

I think I found the perfect bag to carry all summer. JJ Winters croco leather clutch. 

Nice !!

Obsession Du Jour

As I said before I always have an obsession that I research over and over again. Right now I live in Orlando but I drive to Miami every Thursday ( crazy I know)  and then go back Mondays to Orlando to go to class. It's been almost four years that I left my hometown Maracaibo to live here in America, it was a very tough decision but by far the best one I have made in my life. In a couple of months I would be moving permanently to Miami and finally getting my own place to love and decorate. Lately I been obsessing with zebra rugs, something I am going to buy for my crib.

Love It or Hate It ?

Claudette Weekend

I did a lot of thinking before opening this blog, I was kind of scared of putting my life out there for all the world to see and did not know if I would have time to write every single day. Would this blog entertain people ? Are they going to like my style ? Would I have followers ? I have to say that I don't regret opening this blog, It is my little space to show things I love and to share with you guys my passion for fashion. Everyday I am thinking in ways to improve it, I want to get a better camera and take some photography classes in order to improve my photos. I thank all of you that are following me and if you guys have some advice or things you will like to see in my blog I would love to see the requests. Some pics I took this weekend. Enjoy !!!

Online Shopping

I love shopping at the mall, but I think that there are better deals online and some different brands that don't sell at your regular mall. I am always looking for a great deal online plus there is nothing better than a new package at your doorstep. Below are some gorgeous online finds that are in my shopping list.

Asos is one of my favorites places to buy online, they are have a lot of merchandise to choose from. Right now I love this lace-up open toe booties, these would be a great spring buy, pair them with a cute floral dress are you are good to go.  They are $85.55   Get These Here

H&M Fashion Against Aid 2010

I can't express in words how happy I was that an H&M store opened in Orlando, but sometimes I get super mad because they don't carry all the cool collections. For the garden collection I had to buy some pieces on ebay , because the store was not carrying it. I really hope this store will carry the Fashion Against Aid collection coming up this month.

How cool is this ? I love the whole tribal theme in all the collection. I have to say H&M is stepping up their game, every season they are coming up with a beautiful collection, the collections are also way better quality that the regular clothing they have at the store and obviously with a higher price tag. Thank god for H&M.
Happy Wednesday Ladies
