Have A Fabulous Easter…

Happy Easter fabulous Bunnies {I still don’t understand how bunnies and Easter became associated, but I digress!} Wishing you a blessed, light filled and beautiful day.  Above is the ultimate Easter bonnet.  If you’re going to wear one, you may as well do it stylishly.

Growing up in London, every Easter, my mum used to treat us to these huge milk chocolate eggs, which were filled with more chocolate surprises, and sometimes small toys.  These eggs seem to be very hard to find here in the States, and if you do find them, they’ve been imported from England, and sold at exorbitant prices!

 Big sis please ship one to me!!

I couldn’t resist this Easter baby!

I would love to wish all of you, an Amazing, Blessed and Extra Special Easter weekend!

Loving Vince Camuto…

Vince Camuto Sandals

 

I was in Nordstrom on Sunday, having a look around, and I came across these beautiful Vince Camuto sandals.  The colour is an absolutely stunning vivid blue suede, with a snake patterned heel and ankle strap.  I can see this with a little summer dress in white, paired with a yellow clutch {colour blocking at it’s best} and a statement necklace.  At $128, I think they’re nicely priced, for a gorgeous statement sandal.

Roll on Summer!

Hello Dahhlings!  The photo above {captured by me on my trusty iPhone},  is what I woke up to this morning.  This being the 5th day of spring, the joke is still on us.  Though pretty and looking much like a Norman Rockwell painting, this is not what we would normally expect for the last week in March.

I hope you had yourselves a fabulous weekend, and you’re ready and rearing to go for the upcoming week.

Just remember; blue skies are somewhere on the horizon.

T.G.I.F. To All Weekend Warriors!

Joyus bracelets - compressed

Hi Stylish People!  Here we are on another chilly Friday.  Can you belive it was 32 degrees this morning? and it’s not going to be that much higher over the weekend.  I’m pretty sure the groundhog is in his burrow laughing really hard at us.

While going through my daily emails, I came across this lovely gold plated and leather bracelet on Joyus.com {search for The Perfect Bracelet}.  If you’re looking for unusual accessories, Joyus is one of the sites to visit {you have to sign up to be able to shop}.  At only $38 dollars for a set of 3, these would like really nice in multi stacks; and with free shipping on $50 or more it’s worth it.  I know they’ll be on my list of accessories for the upcoming spring/summer season.

CableKeeps by nice

 

Another little treasure which arrived in my inbox were Cable Keeps by Nice, which are being sold on the Fab.com website, this is another site you need to be a member to shop, but it takes all of 5 minutes to sign up.  If you’re like me and the mess of white cable cords, which power all of our various i-devices does not sit well with you, well, here is a colourful and tidy solution.  They’re only $12 for the next 6 days, not bad for neatness.

The most important things for me to do this weekend, is to get a haircut, upload some new items to my Etsy store, and create a couple of my Penelope Rosette hats for Easter.  What’s on your weekend list?

Whatever you do, have a Restful, Peaceful and Amazing weekend.

Me again

Spring is Finally here… Kind of!

Well today is the official first day of spring.  With temperatures in the high 40’s low 50’s (plus overnight frost) it certainly does not feel like it.  The most important thing is, it’s officially here, which means we have lovely warm weather and blue skies to look forward to.

haught hippie dress

With thoughts of spring in the air, I thought this lovely floral dress by Haute Hippie at PiperLime.com was a good representation of the weather to come. It’s a little on the expensive side at $565! but I’m sure you can find something very similar at H&M,  Zara or any of the other major chain stores.  If I find an alternative, I’ll feature it in a future post.  Click on the dress or the link to be taken to the PiperLime website.

Wishing you a Marvelous and Amazing Wednesday!

Monday Musings…

Hi Dahhlings… Here we are again, another Monday, even though it’s trying to snow here, it’s still a beautiful day.  I’m feeling so much better after my sluggish week last week; my body has finally caught up to the Daylight Savings Time change 🙂

I had a great weekend; I created a couple of my flower hats in spring/easter colours, as well as sorting and organizing myself, both mentally and physically.  It was a recalibration of sorts!  I’m still reading “The Secret” which has been a fantastic source of inspiration for me.  As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, this is my second time reading it, which has been much more fulfilling then the first time around.  I’m coming to the end and I plan to re-read it all over again!

 

Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type

Last week I received my copy of Eat Right 4 Your Type, a book which was first published in 1997 by Dr. Peter J.D’Adamo.  The premise of the book is that due to our individual blood types, there are certain foods which are not conducive to our overall health and well-being.

My sister has been on this lifestyle food plan for approximately 6 years, and it truly has done wonders for her, she is testament to me, that it actually works.

The book explains the reasons why certain foods are not good for us, and guides you through the process of eliminating them.  to learn more, click here.  I’ll keep you up to date on my progress.  Click on the image or red link above to be taken to the Amazon website to order yours.

Have yourselves a Creative, Positive and Amazing week!

Isn’t this a great shot of Karl Largerfeld and the beautiful Sudanese beauty, Alek Wek!

Happy Friday Dahhlings… This has been a very sluggish, no energy week for me, I think it’s the time change {still don’t know why we continue to do this}, therefore, my posts have been very sparse this week.

Here are a few more images of the beautiful Alek:

Well guess who woke up late because their iPhone alarm app did not sync with day light savings time? Why do we still do this?  Other than that, I had a fantastic weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, blue skies and lots of sun, and of course today, it’s cloudy and overcast.   No matter what, we’ re still going to have a great day!

I want to wish you an Amazing, Positive and Productive Monday, and remember…

Love Yourself

Ooooh Shoxie…

Shoxie Dress

 While going through my Instagram feed, I discovered the lovely boutique Shoxie!  When I saw this wrap maxi dress I was completely bowled over.  At $125.00, I think it’s a steal in order to look gorgeous, for the upcoming summer affairs, where you want to look simple, yet elegant, and very nicely put together, without too much fuss.  I’ve got my eye on either of the black and white striped dresses myself, or maybe the coral… decisions, decisions.

How would I wear? Sky high wedges and a neon clutch (post coming soon); topped off with my Tom Ford red lipstick in Cherry Lush, and I’m good to go 🙂

Make your way to their lovely online boutique here or click on the dresses above to be taken right to them!
