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!!”.

Wishing you a Beautiful and Blessed Week

A Week To Be A Gorgeous Succulent…

Hello Darlings!  It has been one doozy of a week, to say the very least!  I captured the above photo with my iPad, because to me it signifies strength.  It’s actually part of a dazzling floral arrangement, but for some reason, this Succulent seemed to stand out more than the beautiful flowers surrounding it.  As you know the Succulent is a very hearty shrub, which usually retains water in arid climates or conditions.  Succulents can withstand the most extreme circumstances, and will still look beautiful, long after the other flowers surrounding it have withered and died.

This was a week to truly becoming a beautiful and robust succulent; meaning, no matter what comes your way, you stand strong and look gorgeous doing it.

Have yourselves a very fabulous and chic weekend!

And remember Darlings…

I love everything about this dress and the photography.  I love the way the photographer captured the dress, like a beautiful exotic bird, spreading her wings, showing you what she’s got! Stunning!

Happy Friday darlings! We finally made it and the weekend is here.   I’m happy to report that so far we’ve had 2 gorgeous days of sun and blue skies.  I hope you have something wonderful in store for your weekend.  Get lots done!!

Above is a photograph, I took yesterday of some beautiful flowers blooming in my neighbourhood.  They just appeared from nowhere.  I think they got some major encouragement from the lovely weather, and wanted to show off their pink glory.  I would love for you to right-click on the photo, and save it, whereby, you can turn it into wall paper for your iPad or computer {it looks stunning on my iPad}.  Just a little Friday treat from me to you.

Have yourselves the most Ultra Chic and Wonderful weekend, see you soon!

Hi Darlings, happy Monday to you! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did.

I think Mother Nature did not get the memo that its spring, because right now it’s 45 degrees and cold! This has been the oddest spring to date, the weather does not seem to be able to make up it’s mind.  As a reminder of the spring we’re supposed to be having, here’s a photo, which I took near my home last week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and productive week.

Vintage Impresario….

Vintage Coat

On Sunday, the most amazing afro caught my eye, and that’s how  I met the most unique and extraordinary woman by the name of Makkah, who is the owner of Revolution Vintage in Baltimore.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was in Baltimore, and happened to stumble upon this charming little boutique.  While there, Makkah and I struck up a lovely conversation, whereby, I purchased what I thought was one of the most beautiful vintage coats.  Makkah offered me the most wonderful deal, once I told her I was a blogger, which I could not pass up, so wonderful in fact, I dare not tell you how much!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The best way to describe Makkah’s boutique, is it’s a delightful bazaar of unusual and eclectic finds; like a Magpies’ nest of colourful and shiny things, you don’t know what you should look at first.  A hodge podge mix of vintage dresses, coats and scarves hung on coat racks and laid across old fashion sofas, fabulous accessories spilled on a dresser for good measure.  As you can see, Makkah herself is a stunning vision of colours, and creativity, exuding the most artistic of auras.  I found her when the market was nearly closing, because I’m sure I could have spent half the day with her if I had found her earlier.

You can find the lovely Makkah on Instagram @revolutionvintage, where she has some of the most amazing photos, or if you’re in the area, visit her boutique at the Patapsco Indoor Flea Market in Baltimore.  It’s so worth it!

Cherry Blossoms And All…

Cherry Blossoms

Happy Monday! I had another fantastic weekend, the weather was absolutely gorgeous!!! 60 degrees on Saturday and a whopping 67 yesterday.  Apparently we’re heading for 70 degrees today, lets enjoy it while we can.  While I was out, I made a spontaneous decision to drive down to the Tidal Basin in downtown DC… Wow!  The traffic was at a major standstill, so all I could get was this drive by photo of a few cherry trees.  Side note: Metro really is the only way to visit the Cherry Blossoms!

Most of the trees were not in full bloom, but the crowd was definitely there.  I’m  hoping to return next weekend with my Canon T3i, when they should be fully bloomed in all their pink and white glory.

Stay tuned for my upcoming blog post {maybe later today or tomorrow} on my trip to Baltimore, where I met the most wonderful and eccentric vintage store owner.  You’ll see why she truly deserves her own post!

I hope you’re having a Fabulous and Amazing Monday!

And remember…

Springtime In DC…

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.

There’s Nothing Like The Ritz…

Dahhlings… Finally, here are the photos of my birthday lunch at the Ritz in London.  It was one of the most beautiful experiences; which made my birthday absolutely grand and super special.  Thanks to my wonderful sister, Althea, for her elegant taste in choosing such a wonderful establishment, to celebrate this extra special milestone birthday.

You truly have not experienced fine dining until you have experienced the Ritz in London.  The table service is truly a first class and highly synchronized piece of art, orchestrated by the superb and elegantly attired wait staff.  Today’s post will be a photo blog in the true sense of the word… Enjoy!
