My Lovely Randomness: All things Bright and Beautiful.



Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you this week. Today's post is a bit of a hodge- podge of things, so bear with me. Firstly let me say Ralph Lauren's Summer collection 2012 is so very luxe and wearable. There are lots of pieces one can add to her wardrobe to capture the look he has created, inspired by "The Great Gatsby". I love this collection, check out the video above. 
What do you think?

Secondly congratulations to my work colleague Caroline on her recent nuptials to the very handsome Craig. I wish them both many years of bliss. 
Aren't they the cutest together??? I love happy endings.




Also Happy Birthday greetings to my now 4 year old daughter "Layla" which means "dark beauty" in Arabic/African. She has the most independent nature, an inquiring mind, a loving touch and she gives the best hugs. I feel incredibly fortunate to have a daughter. I remember when I first held her marvelling at how beautiful she was and wondering if I was good enough to be her mother. Now I look forward to early Saturday mornings when she crawls into my bed and gently wakes me to watch Tinker Bell or Dora The Explorer, this is our time, to paint our toes and giggle about absolutely nothing. These days she has taken to holding my hand a little longer before she goes to her preschool class...as I reassure her to be brave and I let her go, I watch her walk away and realize one day soon she'll step into the world on her own..." and a tear slips down my cheek."




Did I also happen to mention I have an up and coming wedding to attend. Well I have been in a quandary trying to figure out what I will wear. Well I had pinned this dress sometime ago to my Pinterest Board "Fashion Forward". Anyway to make a long story short, I'm currently getting a (Teal) copy made, from a delightful friend who is a seamstress. Trust me when I say, she can copy any style I throw her way. I personally think every girl should have a seamstress with mad skills. So watch out Chanel Iman, step aside. I'll be sure to take some fashion pics for you all to see.




Cheers my Lovelies, till next time.
