Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, June 2017


Hello Dear Readers.  It's hard to believe June is already upon us.  I feel like it was just New Year's and I was eating rice balls and fighting to stay awake till midnight.  Ah yes, a pretty accurate depiction of my fast paced life right there...but man...those rice balls...so good!

First Blogiversary

The Greats sit on my bookshelf at home.  I hope to have as much talent as they do in their pinky fingers.

Hello Dear Readers!  Today marks a special day for me, it is the one year anniversary of when I first started this blog.  I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you.  Those of you that have followed this blog from day one, those that only recently discovered this blog and those of you that have stopped by on just one or two occasions.  I truly appreciate you reading my words and putting up with my often quirky commentary.  I hope I made you chuckle a time or two and that you have found some useful tips, projects, and ideas from my writings.  That is my goal and why I do what I do.  So truly, humbly, thank you.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, May 2017

Happily wedded feet.

Hello Dear Readers.  Today is my 2nd Wedding Anniversary and in honor of that I thought it'd be fun to make my wedding shoes the shoe of the month for May 2017.  Some may see this as a shameless plug to get people to wish me Happy Anniversary....but it's SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT!  May is the start of wedding season and I am honoring that today as well with not just one but two shoe round ups.  Oh my!  One for brides and one for guests.

Mother's Day Lunch 2017

Happy Mother's Day Dear Readers.  Extra special happy wishes to all of you that are mothers.  You have one of the hardest jobs out there and really probably need more that just one day of tribute.

The Mother's Day place setting I dreamed up this year.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, April 2017



Sometimes things can be late, Spring's arrival in New England for one and the April Shoe of the Month post for two.  My apologies for that, dear readers, but much like a New England Spring, the April Shoe of the Month is worth the wait...I swear!

Spring Fashion Guide




Spring has sprung dear readers!  Well officially it has sprung but it's still mighty cold here in Connecticut.  That's ok though, I will not let the cold get me down.  Really, us Connecticut folks have nothing to complain about.  We had two big storms and other than that it was a fairly mild Winter.  However, I still want to celebrate the end of Winter and the beginning of glorious Spring with a Spring fashion round up.  Coming at you starting.....NOW!

Book Review - The Flower Chef




I received so many great books for Christmas this year and I'm reading through them slowly.  I thought it'd be fun to share the books with you in a book review series.  First up is The Flower Chef by Carly Cylinder.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, March 2017

Hello dear readers.  For the March shoe of the month, I thought I'd mix it up a bit and do a special Academy Awards addition, where I tell you my picks for best dressed and choose a shoe inspired by their overall look.

First up Karlie Kloss.

Icon Inspirations - Audrey Hepburn


Hello dear readers. I've had this idea for a regular series that I wanted to kick off today. I'm calling it Icon Inspirations and here's the run down of how it will work. Each post will feature someone that is an inspiration, not just for their personal style, but for their grace, charm, charisma and overall bravado. I will then adapt their style into the home decor genre, a "Love their style, live their style" of sorts. First up of course is my number one inspiration, Audrey Hepburn. Audrey's style is very feminine and classic. Her style is still relevant and on point today which is not an easy feat by any means...and yet...Audrey made it seem easy. Take this picture below for example, it was taken 49 years ago and yet, I want this entire look. The super chic sunglasses, that gorgeous coat with brass buttons and that awesome haircut. I do not look like this when I fly! How do I look like this when I fly?!?!

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, February 2017

Happy February dear readers!  Tomorrow is Groundhog Day here in the US and we all wait with baited breath to see if Spring will grant us an early arrival or if we shiver through six more weeks of Winter.  For me however, as soon as February hits, I start dreaming of Spring, long runs outside, daffodils, iced coffee, wearing dresses with no tights and lounging by an infinity pool at an Italian villa with a bottomless champagne flute...you know...the simple pleasures of life.  Some people may think that I am rushing things a bit, but to this I must argue...how can I not when the Fashion Houses are pumping my Instagram feed full of Spring/Summer 2017 fashion and the home decor catalogs are flooding my home with their Spring 2017 editions?!?!  Speaking of fashion, my favorite fashion house, Chloe, inspired this month's shoe of the month with this amazing top and skirt combo.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, January 2017

Happy New Year dear readers!  I hope you all thoroughly enjoyed the holidays and spent much quality time with your family and friends.  My holidays were a good blend of eventful and relaxing.  I love the holiday season so much and all the opportunities it provides for creating, baking, cooking, entertaining and mingling.  In fact I love it so much that I usually find myself in a bit of a funk come January.  However, just because the holidays are over and we still have a long stretch of Winter ahead doesn't mean we have to hibernate at home in sweats drowning our sorrows in red, red wine while binge watching HGTV.  OH NO...I will not let that happen to myself this Winter...no matter how much I love HGTV!  In fact I am making a conscience effort to appreciate the beauty in Winter and to get out there and enjoy it more.

Appreciating the beauty that Winter has to offer on a nature walk.
