Office Inspiration

At the beginning of the year I will be moving my boutique to a historical building downtown where I can run it in the front half while having an office in the back for my blog/styling services and a new project (that's currently being kept a secret... will tell you soon promise!!!!). Currently I'm spending hours looking through tumblr/blogs and home decor sites looking for any and all inspiration I can find.

Sister Act: Nefeli & Natalia

(all photos via Twin Fashion)
Late last year I started following this fabulous fashion blog: Twin Fashion by Nat and Nef. It's written by two sisters   Nefeli and Natalia. These girls really know how to dress!!!! I'm constantly looking at their outfit post for inspiration. Check out their blog HERE as well as their tumblr page HERE!!!!
The blog was founded a year ago (October 2010) by sisters Nefeli and myself, Natalia (aka nef and nat), in an effort of expressing their vision and unique views on the fashion world, as well as interacting with an eager audience the world over. It is a combination of a style diary and ongoing inspirational moodboard

Sugar Cookies from WHTPAPER

Guest Blogger: Cindy from WHTPAPER

The Q and A:
Tell me about your blog:  An observation of life by looking at/obsessing over art, books, fashion, films, music, photography, etc.

What Inspires you?
It's many different things every day. It could be books (Carine Roitfeld's Irreverent and Daphne Guinness coffee table books at the moment; I just picked up a Joan Didion novel to read also), films (I am behind. . I just watched The Kings Speech which I loved and the Bill Cunningham New York documentary is in my queue now), music (all summer-and still-I have been listening to Washed Out and The Weeknd), scent (I am using Occult-I interviewed the perfumer on my blog and Jo Malone 154 a lot right now). These are listed in alphabetical order as none takes a huge precedent over anything else. I am also inspired by blogs-all kinds of blogs. The Internet allows for the study and expansion of ones interests immediately.

The Recipe: Sugar Cookies
What your going to need for the cookies:
1 cup margarine
                                                                         2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together well with hands. Bakes at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.

powdered sugar
 water

About the cookie recipe: (do you make these often? how did you get it? Was it a family recipe? Was it a favorite from childhood?)
 I love these cookies but mainly make them at Christmas time as this is the childhood memory I have of them. We made them every Christmas. My Mom received the recipe as a part of a Valentine's Day gift when I was small. The gift was cookies, a card and the cookie recipe delivered by a neighbor. They are a tradition with us now for the holiday season.
