Boden Dream Wardrobe

Thanks to fellow blogger Dina of My Superfluities for sharing your love of Boden with me and everyone else. I finally took a tour of their website with my sister and we found many items that we thought were "so us"!
I have never really bought any clothing online or from a catalog because I already have enough issues trying clothes on in the fitting room. Maybe I will get over my anti-online/catalog ordering bandwagon and just go for it and order all of the following.
Just kidding I cannot really afford to shop right now, not even for Christmas presents, which is sad to me. Until Iam done paying for my debts I will just dream of these lovely additions to my gem toned dream wardrobe.
~Brass Button Cardigan~
$70.00

~ Rainbow Coat~
$175.00



~ Calypso Top~
$20.00


~Silk Roses Top~
$53.00



~Marching Band Coat~

$99.00

So there you have it, my dreamy winter wardrobe, gem tones and all :)

Make this cold go away as fast as the weekend

This weekend came and went just like the rain. And now Im sick :( hopefully my cold will follow the weather trend. I have a trip to San Francisco this coming weekend and do not want to be coughing,sneezing and you get the picture the whole time! So lets hope this goes away if I keep eating Top Ramen, hot green tea and eat cough drops as snacks.


Leigh and I had a chance to go out and act like real sisters that love each other!
And the leaves on the maple tree started to fall and they just looked so beautiful this weekend. I finally got to put up Xmas lights outside. Actually I put them up in the rain, maybe that's why I'm sick now? The house looks good, I don't feel great, its Monday lets get a coffee and get going.

Classical Music in Commercials

As of late I have been intrigued by commercials that start off with classicla music because it instantly gets my attention. Why do so many people not like this genre of music? It is one of my favorites because it is dreamy, relaxing, emotional and opens my imagination. Apparently alot of commercials have been feauring classical so I compiled a few to share. You may have seen a few of them already if not hope you enjoy the music and the marketing genius.


Aria is a resort and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The song "Winter ride" by Kostia was made especially for Aria. Everyone in this as looks to be envisioning something great that they want to share and the song takes you along for the ride.



American Express take charge commercial immediatley gets your attention with the bittersweet "prelude" from Bach's cello suite no. 1 while sad faces appear on everyday items. Towards the middle fo the ad the everyday items go from sad to happy go lucky along with the music.



This Kaiser Permanente features the song "Clair de lune" by Debussey and has a slight fairytale look to it and may have been influenced by the movie Twilight. There are trees growing in the middle of city skyscrapers and streets. It has suck a calm vibe of everything is going to be alright.


Wow this Reese's commercial gets the point across in 15 seconds with Gustav Holst's "Jupiter" from The Planets. The first time I saw this commercial I was hooked by the masculine and intense song that goes so well with the graphics.
