We are traveling back to London today.  Rome was awesome!  Here is a preview of our trip from my iPhone- I will post more this week.

Waiting to board- ready for the weekend

Little blurry and small but that's the Pope

Happy Monday!

It is what it is...

We leave for Rome tomorrow and today the hot water decides not to work.  The plumber has been here for an hour and can't seem to figure out the boiler.  I have a ton of stuff to be doing today but I am stuck at home hoping the plumber can get this fixed.  If not - the other plane passengers are in for a treat with me..ha!  Yesterday wasn't my day either.  I keep thinking tomorrow I will be in Rome with a huge glass of wine.  So for today...

Faves of the Week

You know when you have a ton of stuff to do and you decide you're not going to do any of it.  That's me right now and last night.  My procrastination of choice is online shopping and going overboard in photoshop- see below.  I found few favorites this week.  Check em out!

Currently Obsessing over

If you could be so kind to hand over your credit card so I can make a few purchases...  

I am strongly considering the DANNIJO iphone case and the tank, bangles and well everything..ha!

Just remember my birthday is in 9 days...anything on this list would be a perfect gift :)

I'm classic with some color

Happy Hump Day

Monday daydreaming

In May Matt and I will be celebrating our 3 year Anniversary.  Kinda crazy to think it has already been three years.  We have started a tradition of taking a trip for our Anniversary, so far we have been to Napa and Paris.  Last night we were talking and debating between a few places.  I was leaning more towards the beachy holidays since London doesn't really get summer weather.  We are still deciding - I think we have come up with a pretty good compromise.

What better excuse to shop right!  I started to put together some things I would pack for our trip.  Top of the list - some serious sun block since my skin hasn't been seen by Mr. Sun in over a year.  I guess I am avoiding wrinkles right?

Pinkies up...

On Saturday, Matt and I went for afternoon tea at the Four Seasons Park Lane.  We have been here over a year and this is only the second time we have done afternoon tea.  What is wrong with us?   I love tea, I love little sandwiches, I love scones and I love love love dessert.  Why am I not doing this every weekend?!  Might be the price tag but really who cares when they are bringing out these cute individual portioned desserts.  It makes it all worth it..right?!  We are making a reservation at the Ritz for next month.  Can't wait!

Happy Hump Day!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter.  We had a nice 4 day weekend, on Friday we went to Brighton.  It was a little chillier than I would like but it was still a great day.  We went to the Pier and Matt wanted to ride a few of the rides but I have a fear of carnival rides.  I will only go on rides if it's at an amusement park- the whole moving rides from location to location thing freaks me out and I don't trust them.  So we ended getting cotton candy instead :)  I was happy until I noticed it looked like my hair?!  I was embracing my inner Marge Simpson! HA

Last year...

We were moving into our flat.  That day was filled with laughs, tears and few %*@# what did we do?!  To think this is what our place looked like last year.  I am still saying %*@# how did this all fit in here?!  Yes I like to curse, especially in stressful situations ;)

Sorry for the blurry iphone pics.  I wasn't about to try and find my camera during this. 

a little ray of hope shining through..ha

Just half my wardrobe- the movers were unpacking and laughing in the bedroom.  
I was crying

Looks like the kitchen is coming along pretty good.  So we thought!  Later that night we found out the dishes were bigger than the cabinets.  Try and guess which cabinet is the fridge.

Matt putting away his clothes.  Nice calves dude!  

We can admire my shoes instead of watching tv...

Another shot of my clothes.  

To see what it looks like now and read what we learned click here.  We did end up giving a lot of things away that day.  I would say most of this furniture will be staying here when we move back to the States because I am not sure they will be able to get it out.

It's a Druzy

The Druzy quartz stone has become popular over the last few years because of its beauty.  Druzy quartz is a thin layer of quartz crystallizing over the surface of a stone.  It is not only beautiful but has also been said to help aid in balancing and increasing energy.   This gem has won me over and I found a few pieces I wouldn't mind adding to my jewelry collection.  I'm smitten with the first ring and bracelet.

What do you think?
