Purple and White Birthday

Using Amy Atlas "Queen of the Dessert Table" as my inspiration I finally put together my very first one!
Below you will see chocolate covered pretzels french macaroons, white chocolate marshmellows with sprinkles, cupcakes and my chinese takeout boxes for give-a-ways.
Here is a handful of the best pictures taken:

Ring in the Spring with Zara Home

Though it has not come to North America yet, I always check in on Zara Home to see the latest trends for the season. The prices are always very reasonable and the styles are fresh and unique. In line with apparel Spring 10, florals and bright pop colors are showing up in all categories of home decor.
Here are some of my favorites to brighten up your home for spring:

Outdoor Bliss

How beautiful is this patio?  LOOOOVE the outdoor chandeliers! From the looks of this Spanish summer house all the rooms have access to the beautiful waterfront view. Not too shabby...

Oscar Review

As suspected, nudes were a huge player this Oscar season, right in line with the trend forcasts for Spring 2010. Overall I was not impressed with the dresses this year, there were just a few that really caught my eye.
Here are my favs:


Sandra Bullock in Marchesa 


 
Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta (Absolutely Stunning!!)


Carey Mulligan in Prada 


Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham


Rainbow Bright

I'm pretty sure this silly trend has come and gone...for a reason! I used to have barbies that had pink streaked hair, when you sprayed them with water the color would appear and once dried go back to the perfect blond she started with. I am not a fan of this hair streaking...can you tell? HA!
