Fancy - Pretty Woman Mirror

I subscribe to, online and on Instagram, and found this gorgeous piece of mirrored art during my morning scroll this morning.  I absolutely love it and know it would look fantastic with my decor at home.  Unfortunately, I am not willing to pay $555 for it… Wow!  It is a beauty though.  If you’re so inclined, you can find it here

Wishing you a Beautifully Blessed and Gorgeous day!

Mother Nature’s Fashion Show…

In Daily Musings on November 10, 2013 at 6:39 pm

The spectacular show, Mother Nature displayed today, was nothing short of stunning! She wore all of her colours, and showed them off in a vivid display of reds and golds for us mere humans to enjoy.   The sun was shining, the sky was blue, with the wind whipping around our necks; it was just a gorgeous day, where, even if you had nowhere to go, you had to go out, and just go for a walk and enjoy Mother nature’s awesome splendor.

The rose in particular stood out for me.  Every other rose around it was shriveled to a crisp, but this rose was holding on for dear life, standing tall and proud in her redness as if to say, “look at me I’m still here!!”.

Click on the images to really see the colours of the day.

Wishing you a Beautiful and Blessed Week

Green Smoothie

After posting these photos on Instagram, I was asked to post the recipe to my blog.  I’m on day 3 of a 10 day juicing and all veggie diet {I don’t really like the word diet, but you know what I mean}, and I must say, so far so good. 🙂 I’m drinking approximately 10 ounces every 2 to 3 hours with water in between, this way there’s no time to feel hungry.


  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Spinach
  • Flaxseed
  • Almond Milk

Juice now

This one is basically the same, but instead the ingredients are:

  • Mango
  • Kiwi
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Flaxseed
  • Almond milk

A friend of mine {who is on this smoothie journey with me} created a delicious concoction in her Vitamix this morning {I never realized how expensive these were, but definitely worth it}.  It was a very dark green, but truly delicious! Sorry I don’t have a photo.

Ingredients were:

  • Spirulina
  • Pea Protein
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Chai Seeds
  • Almond Milk

There are so many variations on these green and fruit smoothies.  I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments section, so that I can switch things up a bit.

 Wishing you a very Healthy, Happy and Amazing Wednesday!

Well we’re having a snow day here in Washington, DC.  As some of you may know, it takes approximately one snowflake to shut DC down!!! Works for me.  We’re expecting approximately 8-12″!  We’ll see.

So to amuse myself, these are the things I’ll be doing today: Drinking tea, watching TV, crocheting and reading The Secret {all of this in bed}, while intermittently snacking on goodies.  I’m going to throughly enjoy my day.

For an easy snack, here are some easy to make Mini Chocolate-Chip Breakfast Cookies, taken from another of my favourite food blogs “Chocolate Covered Katie“.  Recipe here


If your snowed in, have a lovely and snuggly snow day; and if you’re not, have yourself the most Amazing day!
