Liberty of London For Nike

So I'm browsing Nordstrom Rack in Brea for Spring clothing inspirations and I come across these little things...I'm no Liberty Of London Aficionado but I thought of all my blog friend's who freaked over the L.O.L. for Target collection. These are Liberty Of London for Nike and I think they came out last Spring, now on deep discount at the Rack. Has anyone heard of or seen these this collection before?

Kind cute? Kinda funky? Kinda Clunky?

Spring Break with Trina Turk

Just In Time For Spring Break!

What is your favorite accessory?

When putting an outfit together do you have a signature accessory you always wear? If so what is it, or do you wear many all at once?


Are you fond of bracelets?

How about bold necklaces?

Do you like to wear earrings to draw attention to your eyes?
Do you love having cocktails with your cocktail costume rings?

I personally feel naked when I'm not wearing earrings, they are my favorite accessory. They grad attention, bring out your eyes and get this...they are a conversation starter. Please share what accessory's you count on to make you look prettier and feel more confident.

Gwen Stefani Goes To Palm Springs

This week end would have been a wonderful one to visit Palm Springs. Looks Gwen Stefani and her family did just that, lucky for them. Gwen looked extra glamorous this weekend in a variety of lounge wear and bikinis.

Spring, Cats and Warm Weather Oh My...

Gazpacho Girl

My little sister took advantage of the hot weather and some vegetables and made a gazpacho soup for a pool party. I caught a few shots of her prepping and the finish product. I don't know the recipe, sorry. If you look online there are so many different ways to prepare this cold soup. She used tomato, cu cucumber, garlic, hot sauce, salt and many other items I'm sure. Didnt seem to take to long to prep the gazpacho, maybe 15 minutes. Before I knew it, it was all done and the kitchen smelled like a cafe. Wish I could have tried some and gone to the pool too.
Have you ever made gazpacho?

Laura Burch Cat Artwork

If you really know me then you know that I love cats whether they are my own cats, someone else's cats or arts and crafts of cats. In my opinion the coolest cat artwork comes from Laura Burch, check it out and you'll see. She makes cats become mystical creatures that stare at you with lovingly big eyes. I just might be the only person who would actually wear these Laurel Burch cat earrings. I love them they remind me of the ones my grandmother gave me for Christmas.
This past Christmas my Grandmother gave me a coin purse similar to this one. Mine is purple and on display next to my other ethnic cat tchotchkes.

-Blue Cats with Butterflies-
This painting is so mystical, I mean the blue cats are putting me in a trance. I'm not a huge fan of butterflies but I can make due because this painting is beautiful.
