Cozy Up

So, we've been having a bit of a cold spell here lately, and all I want to wear is big cozy sweaters! I've rounded up some gorgeous ones, for little budgets & big budgets there should be something for everyone :) And who doesn't love a navy & coral combo??

Hope you all stay cozy this weekend!!

Style Love: Taylor Tomasi Hill

Good afternoon!

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed a couple days ago that I pinned a ton of images of a stylish red-head. Her name is Taylor Tomasi Hill, and she is the style & accessories director for US Marie Claire.

And she has some seriously steezy style.







See?  Serious style.

You can find all these images over on my 'Fashion & Style' board, and some other gorg photos on my 'Hair & Beauty' board because I want her haircut. Especially in that last photo. But maybe just a bit longer. And not red. My BFF is a red-head and I can't steal her colour haha

Any other fabulously stylish ladies I should know about?

Hope you all have a stylish day!!

Beachy Style

Good morning!

One of my favourite posts is this post I did back in March. I just adore that photo of Marilyn, and every so often it pops up on my "You might also like" when I'm previewing my post before I publish it. Well, it showed up the other day and I was inspired to have a little more Marilyn! So I found some beautiful beachy images, and pulled some rooms inspired by the beautiful blues & oranges in the photos :)







I just adore that top image of Marilyn! Love me a big chunky sweater :)

And for those of you wondering about the Blog Crawl, I will be emailing everyone to confirm their date this week. There's still plenty of room to join!! So tell all your blogging friends & get them in on the fun!!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Sparkle for Spring

Good morning!

I'm writing this Friday night as I am about to head off to a women's weekend with my church! And there's no internet connection at the place we're staying haha

I really love this colour combo of coral, green and beige/grey.  And I mean, it doesn't get much more gorgeous than Charlize in that sparkly dress :)







Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Good morning!

Quick note, this post is going to be photo heavy. I tried to cut some out, but I just couldn't. So many beautiful beautiful images. So sorry (but not really because we get to look at all the lovely photos again :D)


Watching William & Kate's wedding kinda got me thinking about my own someday and I thought it would be neat to share the few ideas I came up with. These will very likely change many times over before I do walk down the aisle, but it's fun to search around :)

Going with the theme of something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue, this is what I came up with.

Beautiful old pearls from my grandma


Fabulous new shoes to wear :)
Borrow my mom's veil


And paint my nails a fabulous shade of blue! (For Audrey by China Glaze)


And just because I cannot stop admiring them, more beautiful images from the Royal Wedding :)







And did you see Kate & Pippa's dresses for the evening event?? Gorgeous!!



Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

In the Air

Good morning!

I went to a Tupperware party last night (tagged along with my mama :) ) and their big new colour is green! Thought it'd be fun to have a little green inspiration :)

Stylish Scotland

Hello again :)

For my final Scottish post, I have the lovely work of Laura Baillie from laurabailliedesigns on Etsy. Her jewelry is so pretty and feminine, I had to share :)

I'm a bit of a tea-aholic, so of course I like this one, but isn't it so pretty??

Tea Cup Charm Necklace
Pretty wishbone necklace :)

Wishbone Charm Necklace
I love the ribbon tie and the little leaf on this one!

Pearl & Leaf Charm Bracelet
And how cute are these earrings??? I love mismatched earrings :) I have a pair where one is a key and the other's a lock. These are just too cute!

It's raining again

Be sure to check out her Etsy shop for even more lovelies, and also her twitter and blog for news & updates :)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Red Pillow Blue Pillow

For those of you affected in any way by the Japanese earthquake & flood, my thoughts and prayers go out to you today. I can't imagine what it must be like in Japan right now, it looks devastating on the news. It's been bad event after bad event lately, and one can only hope that some good news comes soon.

Today's post is a quick one. I adore this outfit and photo, and thought it fitting for a Saturday style post :)

My usual post ending, "Hope you all have a lovely day" doesn't seem very fitting today as those in Japan are most definitely not having a lovely day, so I hope that wherever you may be today that you are safe and with the people that love you.

Summer Lovin'

Good morning! Hope you all had a fabulous Friday :)

Today I have some beautiful images that are happily reminding me that spring & summer are on they're way!







I'm so excited for the warmer weather and sunny days and going outside without 15 layers :)

What are you most excited for??

And I know that some of you are saying goodbye to summer and hello to winter, so what will you miss the most?

Hope you have a lovely weekend :)
