Rocking out at our Royal Play date

It was so exciting to munch on tea biscuits, scones and cucumber sandwiches as we indulged in all things royal.  We couldn’t get enough of Kate’s spectacular wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton from Alexander McQueen.   We marvelled in the wee hours of the morning before the press pointed it out, just how reminiscent Kate’s dress was of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress and how it was a perfect pick – timeless, classic, stylish and modern.   She was a vision in lace and satin.  But I couldn’t get over just how composed she seemed.  I remember how nervous and excited I was on my wedding day, and I didn’t have millions of people watching my every step and listening to my every word.  Wow, what grace under pressure. 

I thought the pomp and ceremony of the day was tastefully ostentatious.  The vows were beautifully said and the kiss…the kiss was touching and real.  I could eat this romantic stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner (can you tell).   All in all, I’m glad I catapulted myself onto the Royal Wedding band wagon.   It was a beautiful way to spend a morning with my friends: eating, drinking, discussing fashion and being merry.  What more could a girl want!

Royal Hattery

As I mentioned in a previous post, I absolutely love accessories and so my Pre-Royal Wedding whim has taken me to check out cute hats. Here are some of my top picks from the milliner David Dunkley:





And here is Kate rocking her Prince of Wales feathers.

Cheers and Cheerios!

20,000 Leagues under the laundry

Does it ever feel like the more laundry you do the more laundry you see sitting there still waiting to be washed? As you can probably tell, I am not a huge fan of doing laundry. If it wasn’t for the fact that my family enjoys wearing clothes, I would just give up and toss the whole lot of it in the fireplace. See, this is a bit of a love/hate relationship. I absolutely love clean clothes but ‘Dirty Clothes’ is my evil arch nemesis. Just when you think you’ve done your laundry and vanquished dirty clothes to oblivion, you spot it, projectile spit up (dirty clothes’ side kick) hurtling its way towards you. You weave yourself out of the way in slow motion like you are in a scene in ‘The Matrix’. Yet, in horror you watch as it splatters onto your freshly laundered clothes. Grumpily you pull it off, walk over to the hamper, open the top and it’s filled again to overflowing…how is this possible? Could it be that your own family are in cahoots with your evil arch nemesis “Dirty Laundry”? And right before your very eyes the laundry continues to multiply 20,000 leagues into the air; then explodes all around you. You start kung fu fighting tank tops, skinny jeans, superman underwear; days’ of the week socks. Your theme song is playing in the background, and it gives you that last bit of energy you need. At that moment, your Epic Team joins you and you realize that you’ve got ‘Dirty Laundry’ and all of his minions cornered. You throw your super-sonic, laundry-soap filled nunchucks at them and they retreat without looking. Where? Into the washing machine where you immediately slam the door, put in the soap and start the cycle. Once again combating evil ‘Dirty Laundry’ and ousting him and his many minions from your kingdom.
