Evernote, Busy Life & Friday Musings…

Hi Darlings!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful and productive week.  It just occurred to me that I haven’t blogged in 10 days!! Jeez!! Life has been so busy and hectic, that I didn’t realize 10 days had gone by (time is going by a little too fast if you ask me).  I try to draft posts either in Evernote or in my trusty journal, but sometimes they just don’t make it to publication because time is so limited.

Speaking of Evernote, I love this lovely piece of software, if you’re not using Evernote go to your app store or online and download it now! If you want to know more about the great features of Evernote, the blog Ginger & Co has a lovely write-up.  What do you do to help you blog on a regular basis?

Since it’s Friday, and the weekend is here, remember it’s…

Have yourselves a fantastic weekend!

Birkenstock Love…

In Weekend Chronicles on July 13, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Birkenstocks - Arizona Silver

 

You’ve just got to love Birkenstocks.  They have been around since the beginning of time. (at least it seems that way, I think Moses was wearing them!) A shoe that most of us would not have been seen dead in 20 years ago, but has now become an iconic style statement for every Stylista worth her salt and a wardrobe staple.

I myself own a couple of pairs, which I bought back in the mid 90’s and early 2000’s, way before they became the trend of 2014.  They are still  going strong today, and are in great condition.  The original Birkenstock, appears to be a shoe, that no matter what you do to them, they still keep going, and the comfort factor cannot be denied.  I think that’s why hippies loved them way back when.

A few companies have jumped on the Birkenstock “style” band wagon, Zara, Target, Steve Madden to name a few, creating their own version of this comfy shoe, but in my opinion, nothing beats the real thing.  Created in 1774, when Louis XVI ascended to the throne of France, a history tidbit that really has nothing to do with this post, but I thought I’d throw it in for good measure!

I don’t think this unlikely style statement is going anywhere any time soon.

A Blissfully Blessed Weekend…

Happy Sunday Darlings! Well today it’s a cold 43 degrees on this 4th day of spring.  Yesterday, we got to a whopping 67 degrees in Washington DC, and I must say quite a few people felt the need to take all their clothes off.  Not me!!! I was dressed in lovable layers.

Until I see a constant 75 degrees, I’m not removing too much.  This was me yesterday, browsing in Marshall’s, who had one of the best selfie taking mirrors.

I hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxed Sunday. Wishing you a Blissfully Blessed week!

It’s pouring with rain here in DC, but I’m nice and toasty with a wonderful smoothie consisting of carrot juice, almond milk, papaya, peaches, flax seed, spinach, parsley, and almond slices… Yum♥  

A rainy Saturday, is a perfect time to just curl up and watch reruns of Sherlock Holmes, with Benedict Cumberbatch, until the new series starts here in the U.S., which is what I’m going to do.

Have yourselves a fabulously chic weekend

This post is really late!!  Its been a hectic day, I’m trying to get things off my desk, which seem to be multiplying by the thousands, and at the same time, getting ready to attend a big event tomorrow, which I’ll tell you all about over the weekend, and/or Monday.  Guess which one? All I’ll say is, it’s in New Jersey, all over social media, and will air on Nov. 3, what bigger hint can I give?

Well it’s Fabulous Friday Darlings, the weekend is finally here, and Thank God We’re Fabulous!  It’s gotten really chilly here in DC, and it looks like the golden days of our Indian summer are finally behind us, until next spring.

Have yourselves a totally fabulous, and chic weekend, I’m going to leave with the song I’m listening to right now – Music of Life by Cerrone {I may have already posted this song, many blog posts ago), This song reminds me so much of my home town of London…

Enjoy the music of life, because life is a song worth sing!

Blissful Blessings

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!

Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be Amazing!

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…

Have A Fabulous Easter…

Happy Easter fabulous Bunnies {I still don’t understand how bunnies and Easter became associated, but I digress!} Wishing you a blessed, light filled and beautiful day.  Above is the ultimate Easter bonnet.  If you’re going to wear one, you may as well do it stylishly.

Growing up in London, every Easter, my mum used to treat us to these huge milk chocolate eggs, which were filled with more chocolate surprises, and sometimes small toys.  These eggs seem to be very hard to find here in the States, and if you do find them, they’ve been imported from England, and sold at exorbitant prices!

 Big sis please ship one to me!!

I couldn’t resist this Easter baby!

I would love to wish all of you, an Amazing, Blessed and Extra Special Easter weekend!
