The US is losing its AAA credit rating.
Eastern Australia is under water.
Oil is nearing $100.
The government in Lebanon is failing.
Brazil is having landslides.
But let's talk about something really important...awards season has started in Beverly Hills!
Stylists are rushing up and down Rodeo Drive collecting gowns and goods.
We've got the Golden Globe awards this weekend and the crush for red carpet looks will be ongoing until the Oscars in March.
The beautiful stylist, Anya Sarre, stopped by our office this week to get goods for the gorgeous women at Entertainment tonight who will be working the red carpet.
Anya is a busy babe. Not only is she a professional stylist with her own website, she produces "Look for Less" segments for ET and she styles weddings and other events.
Now her wedding picks are featured in Inside Weddings magazine.
She even twittered about Beladora.
Seriously, does this woman ever take a break?
We are anxiously waiting for the mail man to show up with the February issue of ELLE Magazine because we want to get a good look at the cover shot with Katie Holmes.

A new blog that I've been reading Collecting Fine Jewelry has some of the most beautiful jewelry from auctions, museum exhibits and the regular gang of estate jewelers. There are lots of pretty pieces to admire on this blog including this one of a kind piece from Beladora.com.
Finally, spring has arrived in Los Angeles. It is sunny and hot today.
But we haven't forgotten our friends in the frosty east.
Designer/blogger Tartanscott has posted beautiful photos of Central Park in the snow.
I'll leave you with this pretty picture.
