Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The sun is shining today after a week of rain, so that must mean it's going to be a good day. We have a soccer game, church, and a walk in the park (possibly with a picnic) to look forward to. That's what Sunday's are all about.
Here's a quick post about some of my favorite things that I am loving this week -
Natural beauty tip #101 - Combine 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1 teaspoon of water to form a thick paste. Spread on freshly washed face and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and say hello to a beautiful you ~ I did this last night and it felt amazing.
Another batch of cranberry almond granola. Perfect for snacking while watching Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm not kidding. The show is just about as addicting as this granola. Can't wait for tonight's episode. (ok, I'm a reality TV junkie - now it's out of the bag!)
I've always been drawn to fashions of the 1950's. These outfits blow me away. I'm always on the hunt for styles with that classic retro look. I love the belted waists, full skirts, and polka dots. Reminds me that I'm due for a day of thrift store shopping. I know there are gems waiting to be found : )
I love this black and white check print. Little Miss fancy with the white gloves. So cute!
Your typical every day dress. I need one of these. Not to vacuum in though.
Newly planted flowers. It felt so good to finally get my fingers into the dirt.
I'll do things a little at a time, so for now I just did my flower boxes and planters. It makes me happy to see these beautiful colors when I pull into the driveway.
Do any of you read Susan Branch's blog? Well, if you don't let me tell you that she just left on a seven day cruise out of New York Harbor to England where she is spending two glorious months vacationing. Two months traveling the English countryside. I could die. The best part is that she is tweeting and blogging the whole way. She's taking us out on the deck of the ship, under the gigantic moon, to drink up the ocean air. Once she gets to England we'll be going to Beatrix Potter's house, garden's, tea rooms, pubs, and everything else in between. This is my dream of all dreams kind of trip. I'll be living vicariously through her for the next two months. xo
Summer is coming. I must try this (courtesy of www.shutterbean.com).
strawberry infused vodka
Hello strawberry martini's! No doubt I'll be the hostess with the most-ess at my next party!
What are you loving this week?
I hope you all have a super relaxing Sunday with people you love.
