Christmas in New York

New York City is so magical during the holiday season. The city transforms into a veritable winter wonderland, with ornate Christmas trees, holiday window displays and dazzling lights in every corner. Even as a New York native, I find myself in awe of the spectacular sights each year.


Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I certainly have loads to be thankful for this year, I've been blessed in so many different areas of my life. I'm looking forward to a wonderfully slow and lazy Thanksgiving day with my family. Can you think of anything better, right now? I wish you all the same warmth and happiness.

As always, thank you for your continued support! Happy Holidays!

Perception in Print to Get a Makeover

Hello my darlings! I've been working odd shifts for the past few months and unfortunately blogging has taken a back seat to all the chaos. I'm back! and I have some good news to report. After four years, I've decided to give Perception in Print a much-needed makeover. It has become increasingly evident to me, and most likely to you, that the current design is outdated.

The new design will be simple, elegant and modern. In addition, it will no longer include a header picture.

What will not change?
The current url will remain the same, so you won't have any trouble finding the site when you perform a search.

What will change? 
When you click on the website in the next few weeks, you will see "Stapha Arabella"(my first and middle name) as the title. The tagline will be "Perception in Print."

I'm hoping this change will not be too confusing to you all since Google tends to pick up taglines when it indexes its websites. I truly do not want to lose any of you and I hope you continue to visit my little corner. Ttys :)


The Polo Bar

I know, I know, I've seriously been neglecting my blogging duties. The truth is I've been having a rather difficult time these past few months. The fact that I remained unemployed months after earning my master's degree was just one more thing that made me sink deeper into a depressive state. I lost interest in all of the things that brought me great pleasure, like writing to you, my darlings. But the fog has lifted, and I'm feeling much better now. Oh, I also joined the ranks of the employed. Whoop, Whoop!

Above are the pictures I took from the Polo Bar on Yves' birthday in May. Yves was actually impressed by their service, and he's a tough nut to crack. I'll talk to you soon. Enjoy!
