{you say tomato}

Tomato Tart via The Framed Table

OK, so hands up who loves tomatoes. I know we all do with a few exceptions. So here are a few recipes for you gals out there looking for a great meatless meal. Tomatoes are so versatile whether baked, fried, marinated, roasted and best of all on their own.

{to all who have loved and lost}



Buzzing around my head, things you have done

The words you have said, remain with me after you left

I try but I can't forget



Like a humming bird in flight you are

Hovering, hovering 'round me

As I move near you fly away

Like a humming bird in flight you are

Hovering, hovering 'round me

As I move near you fly away

Don't fly away

{what I'm loving...}


Totally loving the look of this little bash for Valentine's, thrown together by Rue Magazine. I am off this Friday to a little party of my own with some of my gals. So even though things are really bleak in my love life department, I am inspired to dress up and have a good time. I guess you could say I have come a long way considering present circumstances.


I stumbled upon this wonderful website some of you probably already know as skinnytaste.com, that specializes in low fat recipes.
Drop by and check out this recipe of " Chicken and Andouille Sausage". So Yum!!!


I absolutely adore Kaylah from The Dainty Squid cute nails here. I love the combo of colors, totally great for Valentine's day with the perfect little dress. What do you think?

{my three fave grammy looks}




Rihanna


The singer was looking positively stunning in a custom-made scarlet Azzedine Alaia dress featuring sheer, sheer and more sheer chiffon panels.
Looking very demure indeed with that wavy hair.





















Taylor Swift


Sexy has arrived with Ms. Swift this awards season, and she is shining brighter than ever in a pleated, plunging cream J. Mendel silk chiffon gown with silver embroidered straps.
Go Taylor, GO!!!!

























Kelly Rowland


Miss Rowland handling things her way in a dress that was kept together by sheer insets. Kudos to Georges Chakra designer of this zig-zag cutout dress. No malfunction here folks.

Which one are you loving?

Sunday Servings: "Come let us have tea".


Isn't it lovely when we can dedicate time to tea, good friends and great conversation. Set a table any afternoon with small distinctively shaped sandwiches that will satisfy cravings. For example, Radish and Wasabi , dill and cucumber, egg salad, smoked salmon and cream cheese.  Have a selection of aromatics on hand to meet the varied taste of each guest.


I believe the beauty of tea lies in the pretty cups of china, the prettier the better for me and lets not forget great company.



Have sweet selections on hand of miniature cupcakes, tart-lets, puff pastry with cream and macaroons. Scones baked to golden perfection are always a favorite, served with jam and clotted cream.

On Trend: White nails...luv luv luv.



I think that even though emerald is the color of the year, I must say I'm loving white a whole lot more personally. Today I'm sporting a white manicure and its edgy and fresh to say the least. A white manicure once upon a time was primarily a bridal color, but no more and 2013 is making this look appear everywhere, everyday. I hope you're inspired to give it try before the week ends, so be sure to rock this look.

Stay tuned for more On Trend post right here.Take Care
