Have you tried Haagen-dazs Five??

Five simple ingredients in each pint and it's delicious! It really tastes homemade and light. Yum!
The other night, I made baked cinnamon apples (My mom's recipe) and
topped the apples with the Vanilla Bean.....oh it was heaven sent! You must try it!


all the leaves are brown

I know it's such a beautiful summer day but I am really digging this pump at nordies, Bourne "Kylie" Pump. Perfect for Fall!
ooooh with black knee highs and a chunky wool sweater!!
I've never heard of Bourne so I'll have to take a stroll over to Michigan Ave to have a peak...oh Reggie!

cake all day

my birthday


this and that

I am in the mood for shopping! It's seems like ages since I have bought something. I am trying to behave with my Thailand trip coming up but I couldn't help and peak at some Super Sweet Summer Sales!


light headed

Thanks Nancy for the Ban-do link! Very Glamorous:

After perusing Ban-do, I tripped and slipped into hair accessory frenzy! I feel like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl with bows, satin and feathers consuming my computer screen. It’s great that there seems to be a style and price for everyone. I tend to like head bands with bows and satin best as it leans more on the girly side of things- shocking, I know! : )

I am sporting a RED ribbon today to move the hair trend here on my island. Side note- during my frenzy I came across some really beautiful shots of brides in their hair pieces....just one 4 U:


the race is on

Sorry for the loooooong absence- I was swept away with summer but planning on a good return! : ) so what’s been happening????
I would like to chat about something very summery: The Galway Races in Galway, Ireland. This weekend long horse racing event is comparable to the Kentucky Derby and a time when the Irish really out do themselves not just with the Guinness. Similar to the derby, I love checking out the style as everyone is dressed to impress on the Ladies Day. None the less this year was beautiful and I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
And who said the Irish can’t dress??
The impeccable detailing and taste is inspiring. I want to run right out and pick up a hair piece. The look is so very romantic and charming. I think we need to start doing this more here in Chicago- who's with me??
