Tea Time Tuesday: Head Banging!


             Queen MugHey guys, hope everyone had a nice 3 day weekend and Memorial Day, I sure did the family and I went to Atlanta for a wedding and a little chill time and I must say 1 more day to relax from the weekend would have been nice lol! When I returned home and began to unpack I came across a few headbands I purchased earlier this year that I'd forgotten about. I was quiet surprised at how many I have and the variety. I said to myself after watching clips of the Royal Wedding I wanted to find an extreme hat like these but while I'm searching I think these head bands will do. Let me know what you think extraordinary or not ? I want to know your thoughts.

Tea Time Tuesday:No Peanut Butter Required


Queen Mug 

I don't know about you but I certainly remember jelly sandals from back in the day I had almost every color and oh yes, I also remember that when it was really hot outside they burned my feet, well it's a new day and jelly's have come along way and now designers such as Kate Spade, Gucci and Juicy Couture have released a new kind of jelly sandal that's not only fun, but also stylish and fashionable . These  by Juicy Couture are my favorite and with these old school inspired sandals all you need is a popsicle and a worn pair of jeans for a perfect summer day.


   What do you think will you be getting your "Jellies" on this summer?

Happy Monday, hope you guys had a great weekend I sure did, It was a lazy weekend with the family  relaxing,watching movies and reading, We even skipped church on yesterday just to chill out at home. Sometimes we get so busy doing things until we miss time to relax and do nothing and I must say this weekend it felt good! Now this brings me to today's post Sweet Monday, now if that's not an oxymoron (lol) for some reason Taste of Home Magazine just started sending me issues I never requested, I don't know why but they have; the issue I just received for June/July had such a beautiful picture of a fruit covered cheesecake on the front cover it awakened the Martha Stewart within me, (for real) so the hubs and I went out Saturday I picked up the ingredients a spring form pan and $41 dollars later, yeah $41 dollars later we were back home the whole time we were shopping my husband is asking "Are you sure we're going to like this?" I replied in my most confident voice "Boy, quit playing of course we are!" but in my mind I was saying please God, make this come out fine and thank God it did, Yea!! so well in fact I thought this would be something to share with you. I Got my "Paula Dean on!" yesterday and my husband was quiet glad  he had spent $41, Check out this Red White and Blue Cheesecake recipe from Taste of Home magazine (on cover) recipe details on page 29. One thing I want to say about this cheesecake it weighs about 3-4  lbs and you will have to do a extra workout after eating a piece, just thought I'd share that with you.
                                                                                           My finished product!

Tea Time Tuesday: Coach, you've done it this time!


Queen Mug


  I like most ladies would consider myself a  Coach  fan I have several items and really like the vast selection of styles and accessories they continue to produce and these shoes for Spring 2011 have my heart racing I adore them. What is it that I love? the fact they they are wedges I'm crazy over a nice pair of wedges and these have me really crazy. Take a look at Maleena and Jade if you have to make one splurge this summer I would highly recommend either of these they will set off any summer outfit from a night out on the town for dinner with friends,  a great picnic or  even a evening play the possibilities are endless. What do you think about these wonderful wedges they are certainly not ordinary!

Nothing Ordinary Hat's


I know everyone was so excited about the Royal Wedding and to a certain extent so was I, but what really rocked my fashion boat was the over the top hats. I mean everywhere you looked these tiny works of magic were perched on top of almost every woman's head and I loved it, the two that intrigued me the most were worn by Princess Beatrice and Eugenie the daughters of  Prince Andrew Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York and were designed by hat designer Phillip Treacy who says “How a hat makes you feel is what a hat is all about. “It’s about making you feel like a million dollars so when you’ve got something beautiful on your head and the head is the most important part of the body to embellish, because it’s what you meet. When you’re wearing something on your head you feel beautiful.” I totally agree with Phillip, these are extraordinary hats and I live for the extraordinary.  I think we should take notes from the attendees of the Royal Wedding and really dress  formal when were invited to  formal affairs, this type of dressing with the hats and gloves is a lost art and should be displayed more often.  These haute hats really inspired me to start adding to my collection so tell me ladies what do you think about these anything but ordinary hats?
