Life is made up of "moments"
and how we choose to live these moments is
up to us

One moment in time can change our lives for the best, or for something
we would have rather not had

However I believe that something good always comes out of something 
negative.  Admittedly we sometimes have to look
extra hard, but we will find it 

I don't only want to create memories in my life. 
I also want to create moments; living in the
moment when we are totally in the
flow and aligned with who we are
and what we want to be

So my lovelies, I hope these holidays
bring you the most divine-filled moments

I also want to thank all my wonderful
blog friends and customers who 
brought me wonderful moments throughout
the year

Harry Winston's Fifth Avenue home

Thank you ALL for being part of my small world

May 2013 bring you even more "melting moments"

Happy Holidays Lovelies
May Santa bring you everything you
wish for yourself

  3. Dear, Dear V, thank you with all my heart for these words. They arrived just when I needed them most. I've had some moments forced on me that nearly crushed me this week. But you are so right. I cannot choose what comes, but I can choose how I respond. I can choose what I do next. And I choose happiness, love, and kindness. XO Thank you. :-) Happy Christmas, dear amazing woman. You are such a bright light in my life. :-)

    1. OMG Krista!! You are too kind-really! I am pleased however if I can bring you some light relief or something to think about. We all seem to be struggling to survive in some way, so if I just put a smile on your face, my blog has done it's work. Have a wonderful holiday Sweets and stay strong xx

  4. The Three Wise Women is wonderful!

    1. TY Tabs. Dad is much better than when I arrived, but as he has a heart condition it can be up and down. Just pleased to be here for him now :-)
      Enjoy the hols Tabs xx

  5. Hey beautiful, this is such a lovely post that made me feel all warm inside. I'm definitely up for creating both amazing memories and moments!

    1. So pleased it made you feel warm and fuzzy Sandee. Of course we WILL see each other in 2013, perhaps even with baby? Have a lovely holiday Sweets xx

  6. Hi Vanessa, thank you for the line 'I believe something good always comes out of something negative" I am beginning to see things in this light, and I think to stay sane and focused in life, you have to see it this way. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas, may it be a blessed one!

    1. Exactly Sam. We can see everything negatively or we can see the best in every situation. I know which one makes me feel warm and fuzzy ;-)
      Have a lovely holiday Sweets and thank you for all your lovely comments xx

    2. Wishing you and your lovely family a very Merry Christmas, may it be a joyous and memorable occasion!

  7. dearest Vanessa ... Your positive out-look and reminding us that there is always a silver lining, is a breath of fresh air in a world where people are too quick to take the easy way out and mope about the woes they face ... instead of looking for the opportunities that lie within. Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with peace, family, good health and abundance ... Hugs and Blessings, C. (HHL)

    1. TYSM Celia. It's simply a case of which one makes me feel better, and moping never does ;-) You know that more than anyone. Wishing you continued health +happiness for 2013 xx

  8. You are so right!!
    We can choose a miracle or a misery in every situation. This year has presented me with lots of challenges and I'm still working to focus on the miracle side of things. I love the reminder.
    Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!!
    Love The Three Wise true.

  9. Thank you for such a beautiful post. And thank you for being such a great blog friend (all those twitter shout outs!!!) Have the happiest of holidays!
