A very Bike-y Christmas

By Elisa | 4 Comments »

I must have been very good this year, seeing as how I got such wonderful treats from Santa!


Yes, that would be the Rapha Silk Scarf, GoRide Iphone mount, bike keyholder and Boneshaker Almanac!

The Rapha scarf was actually won on Twitter, but I consider it a Christmas gift (I followed the folding guide and think it looks pretty hot) and the Boneshaker is my copy since I have a commuting diary included in it (Go read it…now, go!).  This silk scarf feels like…well, silk, on my neck and does a good job of keeping it just warm enough.  Plus it came with a note that said “A ‘gentle-lady’ on a bicycle needs a silk scarf” and was wrapped so beautifully that I nearly melted just opening it.  Then I put it on and was in love.  It really does class everything up just a bit.  I may or may not be planning outfits around it for this weekend.  Maybe…


Silk Scarf Fridays here I come!

oh, and did I mention that I got a new job?  Just before Christmas I found out that I will soon be the Project Coordinator for a local food non-profit.  This is exactly the sort of work I have wanted and hoped to do, so for my hard work to pay off in this way is so nice!  I am ready to start and hopeful that I can make a difference in Birmingham in a new and exciting way.

What exciting things did you get under your tree?  I hope it was a lovely holiday for all of you.

    that rapha scarf looks so much better on women than men, too bad women are not part of their brand’s design/interest…yet. mmmh :/ maybe their resolution for 2010(!!!)
