I went outside to get set up for my cookout/pool party today and discovered this off the coast. The Jolie Rouge is up, so that’s a bit concerning to me. They continued sailing onward around the tip of the coast and heading toward Bloodroot. I feel like it’s very likely that is where they were headed with a name like that. Don’t you?
Just a simple affair today with lots of sun and food. I’m going to have to get Aliana to change her hair when Cajsa finally gets back on the grid regularly. Two redheads would be too confusing. But she’s my Alt Bestie that’s for sure. I keep thinking I will make her a proper bedroom – it can almost be like she really lives here! Poor girl. I never let her go many places.
It’s hot and sweaty today. A true traditional summer kick off kind of day. I should have invited over more people but then I’m never good at being around when other people are having things. I should work on that.
I picked up a new pool from the Stay at Home Club – that is a great free pick up run don’t walk. I also got us both a new swimsuit for the day. Free is my favorite price.
I hope that your Memorial Day weekend was reverent to those lost but that your time spent with family and friends was fully of love and sunshine.
Happy Monday girls.

I don’t have a lot of fears and phobias. In fact, I can assuredly say my list of these things is very short. But one thing that I struggle with is the horror show that is OCTOPUS. This creature of the sea is one of the few recurring childhood nightmares that I can recall. I’m told it’s probably because of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. I have not bothered to watch this movie to verify this fact, however. If it is – I don’t want to know. Continue reading →
I have been shooting some pictures for Gidge – vendor photos for her new releases for the upcoming Culture Shock 2012 event benefitting Médecins Sans Frontières. She’s still working away busily on even more pose prop options, but I got her permission to give you little peeks. For the vendor ad and this post, I wore the incredibly hot Cigarette Pants from One Bad Pixel. I chose the peach because it’s one of my favorite colors and a color that looks flattering on nearly everyone.
Ok so just like Cajsa said below……..the options that Sascha Frangilli gives us in each item we buy from her are staggering, release after release. As a blogger, I spend more time figuring out which pieces to wear, how to wear them together – or whether to just shoot them ALL than actually shooting.
I admit it, though – it’s kinda fun.
The flexibility with the variety of styles of skirts offered, two pair of gloves, a bolero jacket option etc means that although Cajsa and I each blogged this today, neither of us are sporting it exactly the same way which I really like.
This is a gorgeous spring outfit in either black or white – and as I look at the hat I’m reminded that the Kentucky Derby is coming up……..girls got your Derby Hats ready yet?

When I saw this lovely bright and luscious dress at Ninia, the Big Maybelle song Candy jumped into my head and stayed there. Of course, it was her deep, syrupy voice that makes the song, that signature growl of hers, but for whatever reason, it’s always a joy to get Big Maybelle’s music on your mind.
Why I call my sugar candy
I’m sweet on Candy
And candy’s sweet on me
I wore this gorgeous piece -KABUKI- from Mon Amour the other day over at Second Style – and well, frankly, I just wasn’t done wearing it. It was just to wicked awesome to let go that quickly. So I decided to flip around a few things and see what shoot out for a completely different look. Continue reading →
I am wearing a whole lot of things I like. I’ve had almost a whole pot of coffee, the sun in shining and I’m in this really fantastic mood today. TANGENT WARNING! I am bound to head off on several today. But let’s start with the hair.
Being a certified hair fiend (card carrying) I was completely distraught when Gogo brought to my attention ANOTHER flippin hair store that I was going to like. Seriously. Stop the madness. Between the production of the creators I already patronize and the new stores I’m being introduced to – well – there is no hope for my bank account. Continue reading →
