On these hot lazy days

Finding pleasure in the small (and hot!) moments of summer. I feel the most blessed when I am with those that I love, lounging barefoot in the grass with a good book in hand. It doesn't matter what state, 
country, or even if there's a cloud in the sky...just as long as I have sunshine.  

Also, on a serendipitous whim, I decided to color the ends of my hair pink...

This is Sir Francis Lots o' Puff. My guinea pig.

little jewel of the day: a pink/purple coconut!

The book I just finished was such an interesting read. It is about Marie Antoinette's first, and only (?) surviving child, and her life before, during, and after the French Revolution. I absolutely love biographies! If you love to read, or just love to learn, I high recommend the site goodreads.com. I am so addicted! 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
PS a warm and happy welcome to my new followers Liv Fashion Boutique, and to Faye of Bella's Blog (a fellow polish lover I see!). I'm so happy to have you guys here!

I love these little snippets of summer! Your guinea pig is adorable--and that's a lot coming from me, because usually I don't find small rodents adorable. But he is so CUTE! http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

Your hair --- I LOVE IT.
A few years ago, I decided to randomly color the front two inches of my hair on each side a bright red. Permanently. It actually didn't look too bad, and it blended well with the red highlights that I eventually began doing.
You pull off this look really well.
P.S. I had a guinea pig poop on me once.

Re: "Except - wasn't [Keira Knightley] supposed to be cast in a Chanel movie?"

Do you mean this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aibOY18Pkgo (directed by Joe Wright no less).

Amber, you say you're reading a biography on Louis-Charles? And there's me thinking you probably only read Sophie Kinsella novels;-)

I saw that book on your profile and thought about saving it for myself! You've now convinced me for sure. :)

I love your hair. It's gorgeous. I wish I had the guts to do something so cool.

PS. Your collab idea sounds AWESOME. Count me in! If I think of any ideas, I'll let you know. You do the same! xoxo
