Here are the 5 things I’m loving right now {in no particular order}.

Ilse-de-Boer-by-Tom-Allen-for-UK-Harpers-Bazaar-June-2013-1

 Love, love the styling of Ilse de Boer by Cathy Kasterine, for the June 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, UK edition

 Behind The Candelabra – Starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, directed by Steven Soderbergh. ~ This movie traces Liberace’s torrid five years with Scott Thorson, from their first hello to their  bittersweet goodbye.  As Mr. Fabulous famously quoted, “Too much of a good thing is wonderful.” And he’s right!  This is a movie I definitely want to see.

capitaljazzfest2013
 Capital Jazz Fest, held in Columbia Maryland ~  one big jazz party.  The festival features over 30 national acts on two big stages.  I will be in attendance this on Saturday {weather permitting}.  I hope to have some fabulous photos to show you after the event.  Click on the link to see the amazing line up, Chaka Khan, Robert Glasper, Ledisi, Will Downing, just to name a few.  I’m looking forward to this one.

BasAcc Universal Stylus - Overstock ~ $3.82 on OverstockMy Universal Stylus set, which I just ordered from Overstock.com for only $3.82 {yes you get 10 of them, one for every day of the week and then some!}.  I love the Diva colours.  I need these to use on some of my drawing apps on my iPad {plus they’re great for customers to sign their signatures with, when I make a sale while using my Square credit card reader}.  If you want a bargain, Overstock’s the place to go!

Ghana Must Go

This month, I’m looking forward to purchasing “Ghana Must Go” by Taiye Selasi ~ This riveting book has gotten rave reviews, both in the UK and here in the U.S.  {The following is reproduced from Amazon book description} The central character Kweku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he succumbs suddenly at dawn outside his home in suburban Accra. The news of Kweku’s death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before.  A must read if you ask me!

I could quite easily, list 5 more things, but I think this will do for now

Have yourselves a Fabulous Tuesday!

August, August…

In Daily Musings on August 1, 2012 at 12:27 pm

It’s not very often I write 2 blog posts in one day, but I just had to acknowledge the fact that it’s already August.  Where did July go??? It seems to me that 2012 is going by in a flash.  Wasn’t it just recently we were freezing to death in winter, then we were baking to death a couple of weeks ago; and now we’re already more than half way through the year.  We’re going to blink and it’s going to be Thanksgiving… Wow!

I hope you’re enjoying your summer and still accomplishing your new year’s resolutions… Are they even still in effect; did you create new ones; or abandon them altogether?

Above is the beautiful Joan Smalls, on the cover of the August 2012 issue of Vogue Korea; and below is Julia Stegner on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK, fitting don’t you think?

 

Happy Wednesday Dahhlings!
