My 200th…

In Daily Musings on September 3, 2012 at 11:43 am

Happy Labor Day to you Dahhlings! I hope you are enjoying your much deserved day off.  For most of us, this is the last holiday until Thanksgiving {not many get Columbus or Veterans Day, unless you work for the Government}, so enjoy it!

Well as you can see from above, this is my 200th post and I’m quite proud of myself.  Blogging has been fantastic for me and to me; therefore, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to say Thank You!  Blogging has allowed me to meet the most wonderful people on WordPress and other sites such as Twitter, BlogTrends and Instagram, to name a few.  I’ve been embraced by bloggers of all genres, large and small, and I appreciate it.

The blogging community as a whole, is like one big creative family constantly supporting each other; I’m happy to be a part of it.  So once again, I’d love to thank you all for following and reading my posts, and I look forward to writing another 200, plus many more in the coming future.

This would be a cool bed to watch all the marathon TV shows, which are being shown today ~ I’m an NCIS fan myself!

A Few Of My Favourite Things…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on August 31, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Very much in love with this handbag by J. Mendel

Today should have been my monthly Object’s of Desire posting, where I would post something ultra extravagant, if I had unlimited funds and/or a Black Amex card.  Unfortunately my day started really late, so instead of giving you a half ass post, I’m posting a few of my favourite things.

I’m totally in love with the entire J. Mendel collection, lots of black {my favourite colour} as well as a strong reds, camels and greys. Click here to be taken to their boutique.

Isn’t this skirt something! It’s just perfect with the chambray blouse!

Oh Don’t Stop The Carnival…

In Daily Musings on August 27, 2012 at 10:06 am

Good morning dahhlings! Another Monday, this one being the one before Labor Day weekend here in the states and today being a big bank holiday back home in England, with the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s largest street festival in full swing in London as I type.  The Notting Hill Carnival has been in existence in London since 1966.

Every year the streets of West London come alive with the sounds of Reggae and Calypso music, with elaborate costumes and foods from the various West Indian Islands {you may already know I am of Jamaican extraction}.  I haven’t been to the carnival in years, but I’ll be playing some cheerful sounds around my home today to keep me in the carnival mood.

The downside to this, is it means summer really is nearly over.  Don’t you think it went by too fast?

Have yourselves an amazing Monday!
