Happy Halloween!


I'll be honest...I love the fall season, however I don't care for dressing up (although I do love to see others get creative with their costumes)! I might enjoy dressing up if I were more of a planner, but honestly I get lazy and never plan early enough. I always start to think about my costume too late (hence why I only have cat ears). This year I will be passing out candy with Charles and a few of our friends. A nice low-key evening of wine, candy, children dressed up to trick or treat and lots of laughs!

Some yummy treat ideas....

Marais USA...A must have indeed!

I just love it when a brand embodies these three things...wearable (I love a heel as much as the next girl, but let's face it..I live in NYC which means I walk EVERYWHERE), affordable (Um...economy, lay-offs and such...need I say more?) and oh so cute designers (when the designers and are just as cute as the shoes, it makes me want the shoe just that bad!).

Case in point...Marais USA.

Wearable ( And can I add ADORABLE):

Affordable! Yippie, at $88. these are moving from my wishlist to my closet!!

Aren't they cute? I love hearing a good story. These two gals met at Parson NY and solved a problem that so many of us have....a need for adorable, wearable and affordable shoes.

**Seriously, need I say anymore. I'm sold!

I Heart..Nadinoo.

Yes, I really heart you...found here.

A portrait of me.

Yikes, where did the week go?!

I've been up to my eyebrows working and marketing my business, Style Me Laura. Next thing I know the week has slipped through my fingers...I guess it's just been one of those months!

My mom, just posted a blog post about a portrait she painted of me while I was visiting my family in CA. If you haven't checked out her blog, I encourage you to go check it out, here. She's a very talented artist!

This picture was taken in an adorable cafe in Cambria, CA ( a charming beach town along the Central Coast of California)....

Here are a few shots of the portrait she painted....

Isn't this wedding the sweetest.

I love the back drop of the mountains and the rustic yet sweet setting of the ranch! I could really be into doing something like this....

Sometimes you just need a break.

We've all been there....where you hit (or slam) into a wall and a little break is needed. Well that's just what happened to me these past few weeks. I lost my creativity, my motivation and just needed a break to work out what was going on in my life. I did a lot of self-reflecting and thinking about what my next moves will be and what I ultimately want in life. Did I figure it out....nope (but I do feel like I gained some insight and a slight push in the right direction). With encouragement from friends I am back on track and feel I have regained my creativity and motivation (oh how I missed you)! And as for my little blog, I AM BACK BABY (I missed you too!!!)

That's all folks....until next time (I promise it won't be long)......
