Music Video Tuesday

Going on a road trip...going on a road trip.....let these Winter Winds carry me away! Starting tommarow I will be posting from the road, so I had to showcase a song that is for sure on my road trip playlist.

You may have heard this song a 100 times but getting to see these instrumental masters (and they have a British accent...HELLO!) makes their vocal experience so much better. Don't you think?

Oscar Party 2012

This year I wanted to throw a really beautiful shin-dig for the Oscars. Everywhere you look on the web there is great ideas on how to throw the perfect award party. Well, time slipped by and I may have not been able to do as planned, but found time to clip and trim pics of my perfect party. What do you think?

 REALITY..........(see below)

Inspired Creations Contest

pictures c/o Luli and Me
A month or two of planning and a day or so of setting up for Indie Wed Inspired Creations Contest and all I can say way IT WAS WORTH IT (We Won)! Lots of crafting, cutting, hanging, laughing, shopping, sewing, and well, you get the point. We met so many fun and inspiring people at the event, and even though some of us where a bit sleep deprived, the day was one that will never be forgotton. I would like to personally thank my very fun and amazing team members (Viviana of Petal Play Design, Natalie of Pemberley Events, and Rachel of Image Icon) for including me in such a unique experience. Oh, and all of this has lead to us being THE WINNERS! YAY:)

Pink or Purple?

Our pinkie blooms dress is a colorful favorite of our and it looks flawless on pretty Mara from 
M Loves M. The only issue is we cant decide.... is this frock pink or purple?

"Cheerleader" by St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) is a song that struck a cord with me, for many reasons but the true draw is how the song has three unique sounds all intertwined. 
She is mostly know for being a quirky singer/songwriter, but this tune lets you see a wider spectrum of her talent. Be sure to check out her other tunes, they are quite good!

Spring Necessities

Vintage Luggage, Birkenstock Arizona's, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Bans Wayfarer, Floppy Hat
Is is too dramatic to say that I NEED these 5 items to start my spring this year? I am saying the word "NEED" like a whiny 5 year old, in fact, I may have stomped my right foot and fisted my fingers also, but can you blame me? 
These items are super great:)

In my Dreams

I am sitting on my "brick" of a sofa......ok, not an actual brick but the cushions sure feel like it! We have discussed splurging on the restoration hardware cloud of a sofa (last pic) but just can not justify the big cost so here's to dreaming! These five pics are my choice if budget was not a factor:)

Recipe: Quiche

 This recipe was a must since I had been craving Quiche for months and all of the waiting was worth is! We had such a great time making this meal and it not only made a great dinner but the next morning it was an excellent breakfast:)


  • 1/2 pound thick sliced bacon
  • 10 ounces of chopped spinach
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, finely diced
  • 2 cups finely diced smoked ham
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside. Cook spinach according to package instructions. Allow to cool, then squeeze dry.
  2. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Saute onions until soft and translucent. Stir in mushrooms, and cook for 2 minutes, or until soft. Stir in ham and cooked bacon. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine spinach, sour cream, salt and pepper. Divide, and spread into pie crusts. Layer with bacon mixture. Mix together Monterey Jack, Cheddar and Parmesan, and sprinkle over pies. Whisk together eggs, half-and-half and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, and pour over pies.
  4. Place pies on baking sheet, and bake on middle shelf in preheated oven for 40 minutes. The top will be puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven, and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.

Same song done two ways. The top is of the original singer/songwriter Goyte. The song is great but please be advised that the video is a bit odd. You can take that as good or bad, either way ODD:)
Below: Enjoy the Goyte cover from the band Walk off the Earth. A unique group take:) Enjoy!

Mint is it!

This season all the major bloggers have covered Orange as being the next "it" color of the season and someone needs to speak up and shout....Out with Orange, Mint is in! 
Its everywhere and we need to jump on this minty delight and sport this tone daily. Ok, I may be a bit bias since this happens to be my very favorite color:)

How will you do it?
