...LoveLe Images! LoveLe Images is my collection of all lovely things - words, images, people, etc. The title is a play on the nickname I was given by my family as a little girl, LeLe. You can get to it by following the link (here) or by clicking the button on the top of this page (in between "Loves" and "Contact").

I am always so inspired by blogs like this (such as Pretty Stuff, Crush Cul de Sac, tinywhitedaisies, etc.) that I wanted to share with you my own. I hope you enjoy it! Here are some of the LoveLe Images I've shared thus far...

Snowy Weekends

Happy Monday lovelies!!! It finally, finally, finally SNOWED!!!! I decided to head out to NJ to get snowed-in at my parents house, so I could enjoy their company and the fire. The weekend was so nice, I wish it weren't over. Here are some snapshots from it. (P.S. for those of you asking - the collages are made with the the Grid Lens app on my iPhone - it's my newest obsession!)

Snowy tree in the front yard.
My dad had the fire going all day Saturday.
Cocktail Hour - scotch, goat and cheddar cheese, fire, and snow.

Happy Friday! The end to a very long week is upon us. Sorry for the lack of post yesterday, but we had a big dinner at the Plaza last night, so my entire day was consumed with event prep. Here are some pictures from the dinner. Have a great weekend - and enjoy the snow! You know I will be!

Wednesday Wishes

Happy Wednesday lovelies! This is a crazy work week for me, so I especially enjoyed taking some time to think about my Wednesday Wishes this week.

Echo Cashmere Touch Gloves
My coworker got these from her Mother-in-Law and they're awesome. Their "eLink" fabric
makes it possible to use your iphone or other touch screens with the gloves on.
Pottery Barn Heart Dessert Dishes
These are so adorable and would be perfect for Valentine's Day!
JCrew Denim Tunic
I'm not the biggest fan of denim (see 1st item on "Things I Loathe")
but this JCrew tunic, is so cute and effortless.
But, what I'm most wishing for is a vacation by the sea...

Moody Mondays (on a Tuesday)

The month of January is quickly slipping away from me, and between the holidays and my extremely busy work schedule, January's Moody Mondays almost went undone. However, I will post them is what I am in the mood for this January...

Hot Chocolate - although I'm starting the new year trying to be good,
hot chocolate is one of my January indulgences.

NYC Snow - I can't believe the lack of snow we've had thus far,
I am definitely in the mood for it this month!

Restoration Hardware's Luxury Plush Foot Duvets - my apartment is freezing
when I get home or in the morning, so I have been living in these slippers!

Caroline and the Goodnight Sleepers - Backyard Tent Set
I have been listening to this album non-stop
(via Pinterest)
With the dreary weather outside, I have been wearing my glittery heels as often as possible!

iPhone Cases

Happy Thursday! I have been in desperate need of a new iPhone case, but can't make up my mind on what I want. These are some of the ones I'm looking at, but send me more suggestions as I'm always looking for new designs.

Ocean City iPhone Case
(I found this one a few days ago on Liz's (of Sequins and Stripes) Pinterest Board. Love it!)
Monogrammed iPhone Cover - by Irresistibly Chic Shop
I love the classic, preppy look of these Monogrammed ones.
Kate Spade NY Airmail Case
NY Yankees iPhone Case
I currently have a Yankees pinstripe case, but the white part
looks so old and dirty - I'm thinking the blue will last longer.
Willow and Company's iPhone Case
How cute is this wool felt and leather iPhone sleeve - I love it!
(Check out Willow and Company's page for more beautiful iPhone and iPad cases!)

Wednesday Wishes

I have been wishing, hoping, praying, jonesing for snow lately. It has been a disappointing winter in that regard. Today's Wednesday Wishes are all about snow days!

Lake Champlain Traditional Hot Chocolate (other varieties available)
I lived in Burlington, Vermont for 5 years so I can tell you this hot chocolate is amazing!
Pair it with their Gourmet Marshmallows for the perfect snow day treat!
L.L. Bean Women's Wicked Good Moccasins
Who wouldn't want to spend the day in these?
JCrew Vintage Pajama Set
I love that these look like men's pajamas, but with the fit for a lady.
Williams-Sonoma Maple Pecan Pancake and Waffle Mix
Pancakes are the perfect snow day breakfast and Williams-Sonoma has the greatest
flavor mixes including Maple Pecan, Cinnamon Graham, and more!
Lands' End Duck Boots
When you get ready to head outside to go sledding or build a snowman,
strap on a pair of these always favorite classics. (They're on sale now!)
ASOS Reversible Boyfriend Beanie
I am always on the search for the perfect snow hat,
and this one couldn't be more adorable (or affordable, only $15!).
Restoration Hardware Faux Fur Throw
I always talk about this blanket, but honestly, does it not look perfect for curling up
with on the couch and watching the snow? (This is also on sale!)
