“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:25-34

I hope all is well with everyone today. I wanted to encourage everyone with this amazing scripture that speaks to our hearts as women.  Don't we worry constantly about our lives, our children, our finances and our relationships...and that is just the tip of the iceberg. God desires for us not to be women controlled by worrying. Which incidentally is the lesson I'm still learning after many years.


Love To All.

Golden Globes 2012 Color Trends.

 Amber Riley, Dianna Agron and Reese Witherspoon all wore red dresses. Reese’s was by Zac Posen, Dianna’s by Giles and Amber’s Badgley Mischka. 

Hello everyone, I'm just curious to find out if any of you have peeked at some of the red carpet fashions from the Golden Globes, held Sunday evening. Well the ladies were definitely not holding back when it came to color. 


One of my favorite colored dresses of the night was Viola Davis’s plum gown by Emilio Pucci.  I'm loving that  dramatic leg slit. So refined and right for an event such as this. I'll say plum is a color I'm willing to experiment 
with this year.



Canary yellow is lovely but not for the faint of heart. 
Proudly worn by Maria Menounous, Paula Patton.


I also loved Octavia Spencer’s soft lilac Tadashi Shoji dress
she was nothing short of fabulous how she carried that dress, so regal indeed.

Berenice Bejo (Elie Saab), Helen Mirren (Badgley Mischka), Michelle Williams (Jason Wu), Sofia Vergara (Vera Wang)

Last and by no means least blue in all it's glorious shades. From velvet to feathers, these ladies struck us with fabulous textures...and not to be left out by way of special mention these two black and white dresses were just fierce.  

Kate Winslet was beautiful in black and white Jenny Packham dressClaire Danes took a fashion risk with her open back black and white J Mendel dress.

What color trend is your fave?? Let the discussion begin.

Room of the Week.

What a glorious room...I love the gold accents and the warm wooden floor, both bring warmth to the this white dressing room. The mirrored closet doors are just divine and clever to capture all the sunlight that will drift through the windows. What I wouldn't give to transport this room to my home.

Lovely Bar Cart Style.





Hello and a Happy Monday to everyone. First let me say thank you to all my Lovelies for the Birthday wishes. You ladies sure know how to make a girl feel special. Thanks again.

Now onto what's capturing my attention big time with the past few weeks of holiday parties, family lunches and dinners.  Bar carts!!!! So divine and so lovely as part of your decor for celebrations or just plain hospitality. Now with young children like myself, a kid friendly bar cart would be order of the day...filled with bottles of cider, lemonades, ginger ales and water. Sorry folks no liquor in my house except Champagne and fruit wines which I adore as you already know.





Doesn't these images (via) make you want to just run out and buy one for your home this week. LOL.


Ginger Ale Cheers to a lovely Monday Everyone.
