My daily favorites I can't live without...

These are a few of my favorite things that brighten up gloomy London winter days. I'm in love with Phylia de M. Hair Care Combination Set. It's amazing for your scalp and head. I didn't believe it when I read about it but after trying it I'm a total convert. Clinique airbrush is great for a quick brightening around the eyes. Bobbi Brown Coral is just what I need to add some blush without it being pink and bringing out the red in my skin. It looks super bright but it's not. Origins tinted moisturizer is my go to as it's light and I can't stand foundation. I've been using Ole Henriksen for about 7 years now and I have no lines around my eyes. I swear by it. And of course no morning is complete without a spritz of Neroli which brings me back to being warm and cozy on the beach in California even when it's cloudy here in London. What are you favorite products that you swear by and use daily?

I'm back! You still there?

I've been gone awhile working on many new and exciting projects. I am developing my own line of wool scarves made in Britain, I got married to an amazing man and now settling into life in London in a much more permanent way! How have all my readers been? I will have lots of posts coming up and things will be a changing a bit on the blog. Hope you will stick with me through this transition and keep following me. See you soon! Here's a sneak peak! They are backordered at the moment but you can still place your order here: Alysia Cotter and photography here Alysia Cotter Photography

Love this Room!


Love this Look!

I love this look for winter. Love the slouchy sweater, gloves, long wooly scarf and high slouchy boots! Love it all. Black and Brown works so well together. So simple yet stylish.

What I actually looked like at the train station coming back from Bath! It was windy and cold and I forgot my scarf. What do you love to wear in cold weather?

Jacket by Mackage. I love in this coat. It's the best coat ever. Highly recommend them.

Great Gluten Free Sourdough Recipes!

I've been looking for Gluten Free Sourdough Recipes forever and my boyfriend's father bought a book on breadmaking and low and behold there were two!!

Love this Room!

This is my old flat from Silver Lake. I love this room. I spent many mornings working on photography and drinking tea from this desk with the beautiful sunshine streaming through. This photo was taken by Gregory Han of Apartment Therapy who now lives there. For some reason I just felt like looking at it again. I can't wait to have a great place like this to work at again soon. You can see the entire place at Alysia's Treehouse by the Lake.

Before Midnight!

I absolutely can not wait for this movie. I have watched Before Sunset and Before Sunrise so many times I lost count. I've been a huge admirer of Ehtan Hawk'se ever since we all fell in love with him in Reality Bites. From then on I was hooked on all of his movies but these are my favorite bar none. Apparently it had a great reception at Sundance! Are you excited?
