This took my breath away...this amazing natural light show....makes me want to run all the way to Norway just to stand in awe of this beauty.....Have you seen the TV programme (a small taster!) where Joanna Lumley go in search of this inspiring spectacle? she waited for the right weather, right location...she was cold....but it was worth it in the end...she saw what she had been dreaming of since she was a little child....she was overjoyed.... What would you love to see...whats on your bucket list??
To be a sparkling star on a 1920's inspired photo shoot in London's Alexandra Palace.
Simple style and classic lines suited her so well......
The shoot has been featured by Annabel over at 'Love my Dress'....why not pop over and have a proper look at all the gorgeous-ness....cute shoes, fab invites, divine dresses, wonderful hair and make up & much more....
....and if you have fallen for 'Jane' she is for saleHERE....she is a star and would sparkle perfectly for you on your special day.....
On Thursday it was out sweet six month anniversary....six months of change, stress, excitement, & hard work. But through it all we held hands, smiled, laughed, pulled silly faces and love each other.....I wont lie ...it had been a hard & tough first six months of marriage.... but we are stronger for it.....and as I got whisked away for dinner, we sat and chatted about what a whirl wind we have been living. We remembered all the perfect moments of our wedding day, about the many beautiful weddings we are going to attend this year, and about our future....only the happy memories matter in this game of life...
Tomorrow there is a blogger silence...no blogging allowed to support and help raise money for Japan.
I shall be taking part. I cannot even start to understand the utter helpless feeling these families are experiencing... my heart is breaking for them. Everyday I see more moving images.... now with the nuclear disaster, the freezing temperature and the snow .... I cant help but feel completely compelled to help in some way, shape or form.
Shelterbox is a Cornwall based organisation which...
"Provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most."
They are simply wonderful, they send out amazing boxes which include everything you could need in a situation like this....why don't you look inside the box.... then look inside you wallet and
Darcey is the most stunning colour...a dusky pink, soft and so feminine. Her flowers have crystal centers, gently sparkling away. Her teardrop shape is accentuated by pearl flourishes, some of which are from a 1940's French beaded brooch made with fuse wire through the war, an added sentimental element to Darcey.
An ivory velvet ribbon and a almond shaped buckle finishes her look.
Darcey would fit into any in-flight bag...to be whisked away to your destination wedding. Her colour would suit any ivory/white/cream gown....not to mention the ever so fashionable nude colour tones
Would she be the perfect bouquet for you?
Do you like her glorious vintage jewels? Her sparkling crystals? Her soft ruffles? Her French flowers?
"Just as she is"?
She would be a wonderful addition to any lucky girls outfit....
I was so sad to hear that the bombshell, the knockout, and downright gorgeous lady that was Jane Russell has died.... she was just FAB OLOUS....so I have dedicated my newest bouquet to her..... here
Gentlemen prefer blondes is one of my all time favourite films. The styling, fashion, story and acting is just wonderful. Both her and Marilyn are captivating on screen. They are both fantasy dinner party guests of mine
