Tickled Pink







 Denim jacket and silk skirt ~Express, Pink T-shirt, purse and pearls~Target, Bracelets~ a mix of mine and Charlotte Russe, Shoes~ Antonio Melani

Sometimes, it just doesn't feel like there is enough time in the day to get all of the things that I want to get accomplished.   I have so much going on inside my head that even the best multitasker would need a creative helper. Even with all this craziness I have never felt so happy,
 finally having a vision and somewhat of a plan makes me feel like
 I am back on the path that I detoured off of 25 years ago.
 Here's to surprising detours.

I hope your Tuesday is beautiful!
 Lots of <3

Sunday with Sailor Sam: Sam has a Party.


Sailor Sam has had a pretty busy week, 
let's go see what he has been up to.





  Monday, Sailor Sam wanted jelly beans for breakfast, 
I said no.





 but we did drink some coffee...

 and we ate nutella on toast.  YUM.


Tuesday, he wanted to try on my big sunnies.
You look great Sailor Sam.

later that day we took a trip to the DMV.


Wednesday,  he told me he loved the new blue nail polish that I bought...






 and then he asked if he could help me put on my makeup.


 I told him I would love for him to help.
"Thank you Sailor Sam."


Thursday while we were watching TV, 
Ava, our blind kitty, gave Sailor Sam a kiss. 
AWWW.



 Watch out Peter Pan,
 Sailor Sam wants to go fishing.



 Friday, Sailor Sam wanted to have a little dance party, 
and invite all of his friends. 
"That would be so much fun Sailor Sam" I told him.


Max and Pooky thought it was great too.


They had such a great time, 
dancing  the night away.

 Saturday, Sailor Sam spent most of the day editing video of the party.


Saturday night, Sailor Sam was so tired he fell asleep with his glasses on again.
What a fantastic week.

"Good Night Sailor Sam!" I whispered.
"Sweet dreams."

Have a wonderful night.
Lots of <3,
Anne

Aldo Martins




Have you heard of Aldo Martins?  Without question Aldo Martins Spring/ Summer collection has to be one of the sexiest collections I have seen in a long time.   With it's mix of African influences, graphic patterns and bright colors, I am instantly pulled in. Every piece seems exciting, wearable and  different. This collection  was created by Nuria Basbalin, and located in  Igualada, a small town near Barcelona and is available in 1500 stores, in 32 different countries, exporting 80% of their sales. I really love how sexy, bright and invigorating this line feels, color blocking in a whole new way, with a bohemian twist. If I had to describe these clothes  in one word, spectacular.  "All Day Chic" is what they call it, I call it "All Time Chic." Well done Aldo Martins.
