My Vintage Valentine

NINE DAYS, ladies and gentlemen. Nine short, fateful days until Cupid rides into town.   Now I'll admit, I typically don't buy into the Valentine's Day madness.

#PinupInIreland

Just days ago, I was in the backseat of a car flying 80 km/h through the winding Irish countryside.

How Darling!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I'm not much of an "accessorizer". Sure, I'll throw some flowers in my hair, or the occasional pearl something or other on my neck/wrist/etc, but for the most part I'm a simple chick. Reason being, I simply prefer spending money on… Continue reading How Darling!

Bella Italia

Sometimes, ladies, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Whether it's a job, a relationship, a friend, a pair of shoes--sometimes you just don't see something for what it truly is until it slips from your fingertips.  In my case, that holy grail item--that Unicorn, if you will--was the Italian Landscape Print Jenny… Continue reading Bella Italia
