Yellow Tea Cup - Compressed

Hello my Darlings…

Once again, it’s been a busy time for me, with an extended business trip to New York, and due to all manner of interruptions, I have not had a chance to blog in the last couple of weeks.  Keep in mind, I’m always thinking of you, always writing and drafting articles, which will be released in the future, or may even become an eBook.  It was important to me, to wish you a very cheery and bright Sunday.

This gorgeous yellow cup was a great find at HomeGoods.  You can go crazy in that store (as well as Marshall’s and TJMaxx) if you’re not careful.  I collect teacups and teapots (it’s the Brit in me) and could not walk away from this beauty. It’s a gorgeous addition to my collection, and to me, it represents the yellow daffodils and tulips, which are in abundance right now, and the steaming hot summer yet to come.

If you’d like to see more of the gorgeous pillow, pop over to my Etsy Store

And remember…

 

Be Your Kind of Beautiful

Sugarplum Booties For Spring…

Hi Darlings!  For those of you in the DC metro area, I hope you’re enjoying this freaky 70+ degree weather. Unfortunately, we’re about to take another big dip in temperature, within the next couple of days, so enjoy this gorgeous weather while you can.  If spring ever decides to show up, these Sugarplum booties by Jeffrey Campbell should be a definite must have.  

It appears this style of bootie is all the rage for 2014, {Sarah Jessica Parker, has an open toed version, Zara also has something similar, to name a few}.  I don’t really follow trends, but this is a classic that has been around for quite some time.

Available in a multitude of interesting colours and textures, I do have a soft spot for these beauties in pastel pink leather.  Available at Nasty Gal

Will Spring Ever Get Here?

Summer White

Well Darlings, Spring  has left us once again; it has been a rainy and dreary 3 days here in Washington, DC, the sun has once again disappeared.  Apparently this is the 2nd coldest Spring on record, and right now this spring is heading towards being the coldest.  It was slighter warmer this time in 1975! It makes me wonder what this summer is going to be like… Will there be one?

The above image was found on Pinterest; I thought she looked so elegant, with her white dress and nude shoes… very summer.  I also think the perforated snake-skin Piccadilly wedge by Belstaff {love the wood panel} below, would also be gorgeous with this dress.  Hopefully we’ll all be wearing our spring/summer niceties very soon; if this weather ever changes!

Happy Wednesday, Have yourselves a beautiful day!

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.

From Forty To Ninety…

Degrees that is! Can you believe it’s 90 degrees in DC!! Just last week we were at 45, then we had that gorgeous weekend in the 60’s and now since Monday we’ve been in the 80’s. There’s been no time to prepare, you go to bed with the heat on and wake up and suddenly you need to turn on your ceiling fan or A/C. Does anyone believe in Global Warming?

Last week I became a Lucky Magazine contributor, {see badge at bottom of page} and I received this response from the team at Vince Camuto regarding the blog post I wrote a couple of weeks ago, on these gorgeous blue sandals.

I’d say it made my day!  If you’re interested in becoming a contributor, click here and it’ll take you to their community page. Good luck!

If you’d like to follow me on Twitter, click on the birdie and I’ll follow you back.  See you there!

In the meantime, I’m going to see if I should start pulling out my summer things, or is this a joint hoax between mother nature and that silly groundhog!

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!

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.

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!
