The Best of Oscar.

Busy Phillips and Jennifer Lawrence
Mila Kunis and Camila Alves
Celine Dion and Jennifer Hudson
What a great start to the week seeing the Oscars and rooting for our fave movies, not to mention the fashions. I have to be honest and say the gowns this year were slim pickings for best dressed. But here I have posted my fave picks, I hope you like them. See you lovelies later in the week with another blogger interview, office decor and of course some much needed inspiration.

Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls.

Aren't they cute?  They are very, very good.  It's the whole egg and the toast combo all together in one nice package. These are so easy to make you can do them half asleep ( I don't recommend that) and wouldn't they be splendid on a brunch buffet table? The best part, you can easily make two, ten, a hundred, whatever your needs are at the moment. 
I think there are a lot of variations you could do nicely with this recipe, such as, swap out the Parmesan cheese with grated Gruyere or crumbled blue cheese to give a different taste.  
Use feta and substitute oregano for the other herbs for a Greek flavor.
I used ordinary burger buns, but I think this would also be nice with sourdough, onion or brioche rolls as long as they are sturdy. Any way you put these together, they will be great.
This is looking very much like my weekend breakfast. I think I'll try this with mushrooms, cheddar and chopped tomatoes and onions with maple bacon on the side. YUM!!!! What says yo…

Balanced Beginnings: a Guide to Starting a Stress-Free Day.

Morning is always the most important part of the day. Who can argue with that? Getting your day started right from the minute you wake up will guarantee  (at least to the largest extent of your control) that... you will have plenty of time for all your tasks and “me” breaks (remember about our 10-minute exercise breaks?), stress won’t even dare get close to you, you will have plenty of energy during the day and in general,your day will be balanced and pleasant. Let’s dive into the secrets of starting your day the right way.  Prepare for an amazing morning The most important part is to go to bed at reasonable time. How many hours of sleep do you need to feel well-rested? Each person is different and while some feel great after only 6 hours of sleep others will require 8-9 full hours of zzzzzz. I personally know that my body needs 8 hours of sleep and unless I get that much I feel tired and low on energy the next day.

 Start Your Day with Proper Breakfast It is often said that Breakfast …

Teal, Blue and Beyond.

BHLDN has finally unveiled its seductive assortment of wedding gowns, lingerie, dresses, shoes and accessories for the woman who want a not so traditional wedding. But an occasion with whimsy and a twist that's uniquely BHLDN. This midnight blue dress is a favorite of mine. Simply gorgeous.



So loving this Persian rug that is the point of reference in this lovely living room. The patterned pillows, antique bottle and wooden bowl of seashells add variety and texture.

Clearly this color is not for the faint of heart. Teal walls gives this room a wonderful cozy atmosphere, and that white fire place is just sublime.
Take care my lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. xxx




Happy Love day to All. Hubby and I are making a night of it. The kids are at Gran mum and we have the night off. He also came by my office to take me out to brunch. I feel like a very lucky girl, still, after 14 years of marriage.

Sunday Dreaming in Bed.

Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.
Gilbert K. Chesterton


“Be careful what you wear to bed at night, you never know who you'll meet in your dreams.” ~Author Unknown

One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody everything every night before you go to bed.

Here's to One Year of Blogging.

I am very grateful to have had each and everyone of you my lovely friends, followers and visitors to my blog in the year that has passed. There has been so much I have learned this past year and I could not have done it without the encouragement of the many comments I have received.  I have made some mistakes and regretfully I have had to learn somethings the hard way.  Your graciousness has been evident in this regard as well.
Blogging has been a tremendous opportunity however, for me to meet some the most creative people, writers, crafters, artists, photographers, decorators and those who defy being defined.
Sadly I have witnessed the loss of some lovely bloggers this past year, whom we have lost to tragedy and some who have closed their blogs and said goodbye .  I will miss them and their voices very much.
I look forward to seeing more successful blogs becoming online magazines, newsletters etc, and attending of course, the many inspirational blogger conferences that are opportunities…
