Maybe A Pair Of These Too

A pair of these dangling earrings to match the safari shirt would be nice as well.

Wardrobe Updates - Classic Safari Shirt

I've been looking all over the place for a shirt like this in ecru or cream and do you think I can find one anywhere?  No.  Trust Ralph Lauren to have what I'm looking for.  See why I'm such a fan.

A little safari shirt background for those who are interested compliments of Ralph Lauren.  I love this stuff.

Creating a Lovely Floral Arrangement

I love floral arrangements and feel that this is an artform unto itself.  So when someone gives me step by step instructions on how to create something this beautiful.  I pay attention.

Planning Ahead

Fresh fruit is appearing in stores aplenty lately and I intend to plan ahead and freeze some for next winter when I feel the need for a touch of summer. I like this idea.

I Don`t Have a Green Thumb

Im just not good at gardening for some reason. Lack of time I suppose.  However, an herb garden is something that I think I might be able to handle.  Maybe. 

This caught my eye from Simply Smitten.

Grandma`s Precious Plant

My grandmother had an obsession about this flower.  As children we simply referred to this as her precious plant.  Grandchildren were firmly instructed not to mess with her precious plant.  It had sentimental value to her since she brought the plantings back from a trip to visit her long lost sister.  I was driving past her old house the other day and her precious plant is blooming beautifully so she can be proud.  Sadly the house itself is looking a little worst for wear but the flowers look beautiful.

Cat Adventures

With the recent loss of our cat for one week.  I wondered for days what she was up.  Then I found this Cartier short film.  Some cats have great adventures and some get locked up in a garage for a week.  Hopefully her dreams were as good as this one.  Click on the link below to check it out.

Wardrobe update - Classic White Shorts

You can never go wrong with a great fitting pair of classic white shorts.  So once again this year I'm on the lookout for the perfect pair and quickly discovering that looking for white shorts this early with pasty white legs is not a good idea.  But since the nicer weather is upon us it`s definately time to start looking into self-tanners or something.  Anyone who has a great self-tanning product they would recommend let me know.  I`m talking glow in the dark white legs so keep that in mind.

Inspiration - My Future Poolhouse

Actually it’s Ralph Lauren’s naturally, but this is what I like about him...
Today is a holiday here in Canada and we're all enjoying the great weather and much needed time off.  I feel doubly blessed today because our cat came back.  We found her in the garage and no one is more relieved than me.  She's a real suck right now and so it's nice to be able to be home and rebond with her.

Wardrobe Classic - Nautical Striped Tee

This is a classic that is again surprisingly hard to find the perfect fit...

I’m on the look out for the perfect blue striped t-shirt .  This look on Gisele is what I’m going for this summer, but I just can’t seem to find the one.  Maybe I’ll just call up my good friend Gisele and ask her if she can remember the label.  Maybe not.

A little Ralph Lauren background never hurts either.

A Difficult Mothers Day for Me

It's been a difficult mothers day for me so far.  It's the first one without my mom and today we realized as soon as we woke up that our cat has gone missing.  It's her first time outside and she managed to sneek out while we were cleaning the garage yesterday.  We only realized when she didn't wake me up this morning to be fed that she was missing.  So after a futile morning looking for her we're now trying to come to terms with another loss. 

My computer issues kept me off long far longer than I was expecting.  The problem was bigger than expected and I've been forced to purchase a new one which I hadn't budgeted for.  It's taken me this long to get caught up with my life and find the time to purchase one. 

So although no matter how you look at it this is a sad day for me.  My best wishes go out to all other mother's out there.  Take today for yourself.  You deserve it.
