Incredibly Loud and Awesomely Pretty!

30 Aug

Have you heard of Mary Katrantzou?  Well, now you have.  Ha!  Seriously, this lady has made some wonderful dresses.  I love love love them!  The good news is that if you had an entire wardrobe of her creations, you would only really need one pair of nude heels to wear with everything 🙂

simple, gorgeous.

 

 

 

 

 

unicorns? yes, please!

soft & warm blue hugs!!!

 

 

I know that I shouldn’t, but I have decided to get this dress and wear it every single day for the rest of my life.

appropriate for all occasions!

Be prepared family & friends…no matter the occasion, I will soon only be wearing this dress 🙂

Until then, look great today my friends! ❤ j

Weekly Photo Challenge: URBAN

Weekly Photo Challenge: URBAN

In Cleveland, lunchtime was interrupted by a third guest!

I’m Baaack My Little Internet Lovelies!!!

29 Aug

I have been as sick as a person could be for the past week and a half…but let’s not focus on that – let’s focus on this amaza-cute video I found on StumbleUpon!  Right now there are only 264 views of this so so cute & smartly done video… I can’t imagine why, EVERYBODY should watch it.  I will be bookmarking this little piece of heaven and make sure to pull it up on rainy days or snowy days or blah days or even windy days 😉

Oh, and by the way, this video is set in Namibia.  You may remember Namibia as the place where Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born, but I always think of envelopes that I have.

Namibia First Day Cover in bright pink, also in blue and chartreuse!

I have a beautiful book of United Nations First Day Covers that I had gotten a long time ago when I worked for the Federal Reserve Bank.  The artwork is very impressive on mine, created in the mid-1970’s (like me) I would expect nothing less!

In conclusion, my lovelies, please make today a great day… or else I will find you and make it great for you!!! ❤ j

New art on wall and on ME!

15 Aug

Just had to give Stefan some props for putting up a new painting that we got, while I was at it I got a shot of my new BANGS!!!  Stefan said that next trip to the salon to make them even shorter 🙂 I can’t wait…

Shorter you say?!?

Nice work Stefan!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to post a favorite color combo of mine… Sinful Colors in 24/7 and essence colour & go in #53 You Belong To Me.  I think that this is a winning pair, especially with the yellow top I stole (not really, but got for $7) at Khol’s 😉

Great blue & pink combo, try these colors sometime 🙂

I hope you are having a great day and a great night  ❤ j

West Side Market 100th Anniversary!

14 Aug

Okay, in case you didn’t know, the West Side Market is celebrating it’s Centennial this year!

Having lived in Ohio City and Tremont for the better part of two decades, the Market was just a fact of life – yummy food, not so yummy parking!  I even remember trying to avoid the traffic by rollerblading while I shopped!  One day I even met the lead singer of Civ’s dad…ahhh, minor local rock celebrity parents!  I have so many fond memories of the Market, I am sure that you do too… Tickets to this rock-star-celebrity-chef event are $250, will you be going?  Since I am planning my wedding and in cram-get-it-done mode, I don’t know if we can make it.  Here are a list of the rock-star-celebrity-chefs that will be there :

April Bloomfield, New York City
Andrew Carmellini, New York City
Britt-Marie Culey, Cleveland
Karen DeMasco, New York City
Chris Hodgson, Cleveland
Paul Kahan, Chicago
Jeff Michaud, Philadelphia
Jonathon Sawyer, Cleveland
Michael Symon, Cleveland
Marc Vetri, Philadelphia
Eric Williams, Cleveland
Paul Minnillo, Cleveland
Rocco Whalen, Cleveland
Andrew Zimmern, New York

Thank God valet parking is included…otherwise you may need your rollerblades!

Have a great day! ❤ j
