Oscars 2015

Lifestyle & Musings

Did you watch the Oscars last night?  There were so many beautiful gowns on the red carpet that I felt like old Hollywood glamour returned.

Rosamund Pike looked stunning in this red gown by Givenchy {who always be one of my favorite designers}.  I really love the slimming effect of the waist line.

7 Romantic Movies for Valentine’s Day

Lifestyle & Musings

Valentine’s Day is approaching (along with frigid temperatures in the St. Louis area) and I mentioned to Tony that I would rather stay home, watch movies, order dinner in and hang out with the kids rather than go out.   This will be the first time in 20 years that we haven’t dressed up, him looking dashing in a suit and me in a new dress, and dined at one of our favorite restaurants.  Tony was in favor of the idea and recommended we, as always, celebrate with a bottle of our favorite champagne and box of chocolates.  This seems like a perfect idea to me.  Now, trying to decide which movies to watch and what food to order.

Valentine Wish List for Her

Lifestyle & Musings

Valentine’s Day is next week and I’m putting a list together of the things I plan to pick up for Tony and the kids.  For a couple of weeks, he has been asking me if there is anything special I would like but, honestly, I prefer when he picks out the gifts because I know they come from his heart which is most special.  That’s not to say I don’t leave the occasional hint – catalogs open to a certain page and my best girl, Bella, always has my back making sure she goes shopping with dad.  I’ve put together a wish list (at varying price points) I think any girl will approve of and if your special someone needs a few hints, leave this page open.  After all, we girls have to look out for each other, don’t we?


Amour necklace,  a lovely candle, macarons, beautiful lingerie (here and here), a fabulous handbag, nail color, parfum, my favorite bon bons, a Parisian & Versailles rendezvous for two, a little kiss

xoxo, B
