love.



You can fall in love and it can be messy and hurtful and it can leave you wondering what you're doing in your life as you sit in the car in the pouring rain - that's always a place you hide and think. It's so easy to blame the other person,but why are you trying to make a home out of hurt? Why chose discord over serenity. There's a part of you that chooses to lose yourself in the mosaics. When you realize it, you can still believe in love. But you also believe in happiness and kindness and better days and that love doesn't break your spirit it only enhances it. 

Saturday Wedding under the sun

My cousin got married Saturday. It was very relaxing, lots of barefeet in grass, music in the background. No pretense or frills. It's nice to see the union of love under the sunlight while everyone is in comfortable clothes and just there to enjoy the time!

Stony Creek & Thimble Island Cruise

This past Saturday U was invited on the Sea Mist, the Thimble Island Cruise again for my friend's birthday. I absolutely love being down at Stony Creek and the cruise was beautiful. Seeing all the gorgeous homes and and the sunset as we sailed around was a dream.



Thimbleberry is right by the Stony Creek docks and serves up fresh ice cream and coffee! 


This is me before we set a sail!


Thimble Island (I did use filtering on this photo)

No filtering used when I snapped these pictures of the gorgeous docks at Stony Creek. The grey clouds gave an ominious tone but we lucked out with no rain!



On the cruise - beautiful visions


Me, I look photoshopped into this picture, but I'm not. I wish I smiled!!

How to Make Your Own Pixie Party

Whether it's for a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday party or just for the hell of it...here are some ideas to create your own magical, pretty pixie party!


Glitter ombre champagne bottles set a sparkling mood

Set up tea time for invitees complete with fresh pink roses, pearls and heart shaped sugar cookies.

Serve pretty pink parfait out of glasses with gold dust rims.

                          Heart balloons and/or pink tulle over balloons add a feminine touch to the party. 



White lights always add a mystical, magical touch. 




Autumn-izing your Summer Clothes

As the nights and days get a bit chillier, it's time to readjust our wardrobe a little bit to accommodate the autumn that is creeping in ever so slightly.


I love this fitted maxi dress, the darker colors are perfect for Autumn. Throw on a fitted cardigan and it would be perfect for a brisk Fall day.

I absolutely adore this! The white skinny jeans, the grey charcoal tee and the striped cardigan are a perfect outfit for a cool Summer night/day but still fresh and bright!

I'd pick a long sleeved shirt that wasn't so sheer, but keep the scallopped skirt, prada bag and those killer heels for a casual with a dressy edge look for a lunch or dinner.

If it's get too warm, you can leave the fedora and vegan leather jacket at home and keep the basic but always stylish distressed jeans and grey top on. 

Black top, black skinnies, black heels, with a cute black and white plaid top and sunglasses = perfect. Of course if it gets hot, you can ditch the plaid or alternate the black top with a brighter, summery color.

Lovely Hair Ideas

Want to style your hair differently? Want a fresh cut and color? Here are some of my favorite hair trends right now:

The color is romantic and dreamy, but if it's too much for you the side braid and loose waves are a perfect hairstyle.

Love the vibrant red, the side bang and the overall style of this.


I absolutely adore this elegant braided updo.

I love the loose curls on Doutzen Kroes and her blonde and caramel tones. I think this cut and color would look great on almost anyone!



Traditional french braid on top, fishtail on the bottom. Messy, yet perfect
