Oscars 2012

Will you be watching the Oscars tonight?  I will be!

I wish I was watching the show looking like this:

Penelope Cruz in Versace, 2007.  Stunning!  



or:

Julia Roberts in vintage Valentino, 2001.  She looked so beautiful and graceful here!


or:

The drop dead gorgeous Halle Berry in Elie Saab, 2003



But instead I will be watching the show looking like this:
(replacing the sex kitten loose curls, with an ordinary ponytail!):


and wearing my Uggs :)

Well anyway, it's fun to dream about wearing designer gowns and jewels!!!

I'm rooting for marvelous Meryl Streep for Best Actress ( in The Iron Lady).  Who are you voting for?

Thanks for coming by for a visit! I'd love to hear your comments! And please, become a FOLLOWER!

Pinterest inspiration

Hello everyone!

So I am at home on a Saturday night sick with a horrible cold.  Ugh.  I am supposed to be at a fun house party with friends, but I had to cancel because I feel so rotten.... boo.  Wish I was at the party, so instead I am on pinterest.

I am channelling thoughts of hot cocoa, soup and feeling warm and cozy:


Nutella Hot Chocolate.  Yum!




 Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup





Chunky Knit Sweater




Gorgeous bedroom with tufted headboard (luv the african juju hat!):






A girl can dream right??

Cozy ottoman and gorgeous chandelier!



It worked!!  I do feel better!  So next time you are home and sick - here's a great presciption...go pinning on Pinterest!

New for Spring - The Link Necklace

Hello Everyone!

There's a new style of necklace in stores for spring which I am really loving...The Link Necklace.
I love that it has a classic look and makes a fresh style statement too. On trend without being trendy.  It can go with everything, from Tees and jeans to more dressier outfits including a dress or suit separates.

This one from BR would look fantastic with the neon colours that are also new for spring.  Think of pairing this with a fuschia or cobalt T shirt or colour blocked sweater.




This one can update that Little Black Dress that is already in your closet!



These two below would look terrific with a white T shirt and jeans:







Michael Kors - always classy!  This would go with everything in your closet!


Michael Kors at Nordstrom $145.00


And even Target is in on the link action - love the tortoiseshell!

Do you like this accessory style as much as I do?
Have a great day!

Latest Goodwill Purchases

Hello ladies!

I thought I would show you a few of my Goodwill purchases that I snagged yesterday!

2 Pfaltzgraff  gazebo plates (love!!) which I intend on hanging in my kitchen for that chic urban farmhouse look:


2 Silver plated candlesticks - love the simple design and height! (think I will put them on my dining room table):



and 2 milkglass vases...what's not to love about milkglass?? (I want to start a collection of milkglass to fill the antique hutch/cabinet we bought months ago at a local auction):




Have you scored any terrific Goodwill items lately?

Have a great day!
