poppies[tagline]I saw this photograph and I just fell in love with it! I think this is the kind of place I would love to live in. I love the glow of the pavement... today surely is a beautiful day! sunny with a breeze that caresses your cheeks and just makes you want to lay down outside and enjoy a nap or just close your eyes and if you have trees around your home the better. You can't ask for a better shade that comes with a soothing breeze... enjoy your saturday[/tagline] [column width="3" offset=""][toggle active="active" title="Gossip Girl Scene"]Love this outfit of S & B!!

Biennial Satchel

I remember talking about this satchel a while back (here) and being so upset because I thought that I was probably not going to be able to acquire my satchel.  I did the unthinkable! I saved money to get me that precious bag and I couldn't be more delighted! It was a whimsical purchase and when I got that J.Crew box on the fronts steps I was jumping up and down like a little kid.

Tippi Sweater In Polka Dot

Ice Cream

vs 022 Yummy!! I love eating ice cream, milkshakes, and mocha frappes. I usually just eat my ice cream plain but sometimes you want to add a little fun and add some flavor. Usually I always have frozen coffee cubes for when I want to make me a frappe. Thus the straws, I don't use a straw when only eating ice cream.

table runner

Silken Stripes Table Runner An elegant addition to any table, this striking, eco-conscious runner is made from eri silk – a vegan-friendly production that, unlike the traditional method, does not involve boiling the silk worm in its cocoon, but rather waits until the moth has emerged. It is then hand-reeled on locally produced bamboo looms by indigenous Bodo women, who incorporate traditional design elements and ancient techniques.

Frames

[divider] Wow!! It is friday! yay!! okay I had to say just how excited I am that it is Friday. Moving on to what I want to talk about today. For some time now I have wanted to acquire a tray to put on my dresser for my most used items (brushes, lipsticks, cotton, etc.). I came across a few but none really capture my attention. So what I decided to do is take down my frames that were hanging atop my headboard and used them as trays!! Love it!!!

Satchels and Bags

Satchels, totes, bags, and bags. I seem to never have enough of them. I recently talked to you about my Aldo handheld bag that I love. I have also told you about my dream satchel from J.Crew that hopefully soon I will have in blue.

Hey but that is not all, there are other bags that I love and Madewell has the perfect winter collection along with J.Crew of course. The only problem with these beautiful bags is how $$$ they are. What a shame right?? But that is no problem there are other pretty bags out there less $ than these.

Hatton Garden - the heart of London's jewellery trade

[button link="http://goo.gl/d12Hz" size="small"]PAVÉ DIAMOND NECKLACE[/button] [button link="http://goo.gl/Fd7MZ" size="small"]MOTHER OF PEARL PENDANT[/button] [button link="http://goo.gl/UaWmU" size="small"]LEAF COLLIER NECKLACE[/button]

Hatton Garden in London has been at the heart of the jewellery trade in the UK for centuries. Conveniently situated in central London, it has become the destination of choice for discerning jewellery buyers and many of the shops are able to offer an online service.

The breadth of choice on offer is outstanding. Because many of the jewellery shops buy vintage and antique pieces as well as creating their own; shoppers can find almost any style of jewellery for sale. For that truly special, one-of-a-kind piece, Hatton Garden is the place to find expert jewellery designers from established talents to the most creative and innovative newcomers.

Although Hatton Garden is most famous for its diamonds and in particular for engagement rings; buyers can find or commission pieces in almost any combination of metal and gemstone. As well as rings, there are plenty of other jewellery styles available including necklaces, brooches, and earrings.

Part of the modern appeal of Hatton Garden, is that quality jewellery is possibly the world’s most beautiful investment. Precious metals always carry value. As well as different colours of gold, there are also pieces available in silver and platinum. Alternatively buyers can choose to commission jewellery in other metals such as titanium.

Similarly, well-cut gemstones have been prized for thousands of years. While diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, they are popular with men too. Part of the reason for their enduring appeal is their unparalleled versatility. Diamonds work perfectly as solitaire stones or as embellishments to precious metals. They can be the only type of gem used or can compliment (and be complimented by) any other stone. Luscious, milky peals and iridescent opals partner with diamonds as perfectly as the bold, passionate stones such as ruby, sapphire and emerald.

In addition to the quality and range of the jewellery available, Hatton Garden is well worth a visit for its architecture and history. The name refers to Sir Christopher Hatton, who was granted a lease of the area by Elizabeth I in the 16th Century. At the time the area literally was a garden however as London expanded such a desirable location inevitably attracted development until now only street names such as Vine Hill and Saffron Hill give a clue to its past. The area has always attracted famous faces from Dickens to modern-day celebrities and so a visit there is an opportunity to rub shoulders with them, if only in spirit. [divider]

Autumn/Winter Items

Is anyone getting ready for Autumn? are you cleaning out your closet yet?? Well to be honest I really am not.  But I do tend to look in my drawer where I keep all of my Autumn/Winter accessories and contemplate them.  So ready for my favorite season, Autumn.

Last year, as I recall, I didn't wear tights throughout Autumn/Winter, why? No idea but I will most definitely will this year!

Autumn Accessory

Yes, I do realize that it is way too early to be wishing that Autumn gets here but could the days just not get shorter? and whilst the beanie is not a rotating accessory in my closet for some random reason I keep looking at ones I own and plan to wear them none stop for Autumn.

The reason why I always hesitate to wear beanies is that my hair is so thick and long that it feels like a bulk inside and I think I just look weird...does that happen to you?
