I want (need) this! - H&M Garden Collection kimono print dress

I'm so obsessed with this dress.  Why, oh why is there no H&M near me?  *sigh*

Some (totally overdue) Giveaway Thank You's!!!

Good grief, I've been totally slack in saying thank you for all the great giveaways I've won.  I mean really, I've been very rude.  So with no further delay, I want to say THANK YOU!  Here we go:

1. Lipstick Queen Shine lipgloss from the totally fab A Townhouselady's Life.  psst:  She's a new Mommy too, pop over and see some pictures of her adorable little girl!  (I won this almost a year ago - what would Miss Manners say?)

2. Cool stationary goodies from Layers of Meaning!
3.  $50 gift certificate to Sunday Brunch dress shop from Bits of Beauty - I'm embarassed to admit I haven't used it yet, but the dress I totally love is now on sale so I may be using it soon :o)

4.  A Starbucks gift card from the lovely BonBon Rose Girls - woo hoo!

5. Oh and last but not least, I won a BIG giveaway from the great new online magazine - Nesting Newbies - I won their Winter Bluebird Bag, chock full of some amazing goodies.  I am so excited.  Pop over and check out their magazine and website - good stuff!

I also (being the absent minded chick that I seem to be lately) forgot to celebrate my blog's 1 year anniversary.  It came and went in February, one whole year has gone by so quickly.  Thank you all for being such loyal readers, I had no idea how much fun and how many great people I would "meet" when I started blogging.  I wish I had started doing it earlier.  Anyhoo, in the next couple of weeks I will be hosting a little giveaway.  Stay tuned and thanks again!!!!

What's In Your Bag?

I love this, I never tire of seeing what people have in their handbags - I'm just nosey like that!  The lovely, inspiring and stylish The Good Life For Less tagged me (many thanks), so here's what's in my bag:

1. Coach Ergo hobo
2. Levenger zip around wallet - I must have a wallet that zips all around to contain all the junk neatly
3. Kate Spade cosmetic case
4. LeSportsac zipper bag with bandaids, hair elastics, nail clippers and the like
5. Simply Vera Wang sunglasses from Kohl's - love these and it's okay if my toddler plays/drops/breaks them (I retired my Chanel sunglasses because of those very reasons)
6. Old school cell phone (how 5 years ago of me)
7. Socks and wipes for the litte one
8. Coupon organizer - what good stay-at-home Mom would ever be without coupons of some sort?

Now that I look at the picture I totally think I'm ready to change into a "Spring" bag - everything looks so dark.

Come on and play along - I tag:

I want this! - Jonathan Adler melamine dishes

At the moment I'm relying quite heavily on melamine dishes, between the little one and our living situation (hello, all my dishware is in our "for sale" house) it just makes sense.  I'm totally loving Jonathan Adler's new Outdoor Chic collection - the "Neptune" pattern in particular.  Chic, fun and the price is right!

Loving this look

I'm digging this outfit that Victoria Beckham wore a few days ago.  It looks chic and comfortable and I love the pants (especially the color).  This is a look that I can easily translate into my own life - minus the heels - ha!  I really need to go shopping...

Dark, mysterious, elegant, dare I say, sexy...candle?!

Yeah, really.  Take a look at it.  Can't you just imagine what kind of room this candle would end up in?  Total glamour!  It's from Votivo's Dalian Collection debuting this Summer.  I'll be waiting...

Lovely prints today on One Kings Lane

Oh, I'm loving these framed prints from Vintage Print available right now on One Kings Lane.  How great would a group of these look?  Here are a few that caught my eye.  *sigh*

I want this! - Crayon Rocks

Okay, these are just way too cool.  I know they are for the kiddos, but who wouldn't want some of these?  Once my little one turns 3 (they are recommended for ages 3+) I imagine having some of these piled up in a cool bowl in the middle of the little table I had as a kid (which I painted with black chalkboard paint a few years ago) with some blank paper and my little Picasso - ha! - coloring up a storm.  And in this little fantasy none of my walls would ever be touched with one of these crayon rocks.  This is why it's a fantasy because you know my crazy girl would color on everything but the paper!  Anyway, these are on my must have list for sure!

Hello dream shoes (on sale)...

I've had a picture of these little beauties hanging on my "style" inspiration board in my closet for a few months now.  Oh, they are to die for.   Imagine my surprise when I popped over to the Barneys New York website and found them on SALE - $521.93 down from $1,295.  Of course they are now out of stock online (like I was gonna buy them - ha!).   A girl can still dream can't she?

Happy (Spring) Weekend!

I loved this illustration from Hermes that popped up in my inbox yesterday.  I'm so happy it's officially Spring this weekend, we are having some lovely weather too - up to 78 on Saturday!  I pass by Augusta National almost daily when running around town and they are furiously preparing the parking areas, have just painted in a crosswalk and generally getting ready for the madness that will be this year's Masters.  Spring has sprung!  Hope you have a lovely weekend, many thanks for reading my little ol' blog!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In honor of the day, I thought I would share some pictures of our trip to Ireland a few years ago - I absolutely fell in love with the country! 

We stayed in Ennis and travelled around from there

Nope, didn't find the pot of gold - darn!

Now for my hubby's favorite stop on the trip - the Guinness brewery in Dublin!

Have a Happy St. Patty's Day!

Hermes Fall 2010

Super lux (did we expect anything less?) collection inspired by the 60's British TV show "The Avengers".  I personally love the tonal leopard prints.
Now for the all important accessories - yay!
