The cupcake courier




I just got an email from the cupcake courier, an adorable company that specializes in all things cupcake! Their most popular item is a cup cake carrier, it holds 36 cupcakes and makes transporting them a sinch. You can also get a cup-a-cake carrier that holds 1 cup cake and is great for lunches or people on the go. They also have many other useful items on their site, like fashionable aprons and oven mits, cup cake wrappers, and fun cookbooks and cooking utensils for kids.

Check them out here: http://www.thecupcakecourier.com.au/

Neat/expensive Valentine's day gift


I came across this laptop while reading an article about webdeisgn, isnt it just the cutest. It's a laptop computer that was designed just for Valentine's Day! The laptop is covered in soft red or pink leather and embellished with a heart on the top. Each one includes a silver heart pendant that can be engraved with the message of your choice. No pricing information has been released, but it's a limited run so a higher guess is safer than a lower one. I know I would love to receive this beauty on Valentine's day, who wouldn't!

Pink living room



I usually don't like strong colors in small rooms, but I have to say I adore this room, at least looking at it. The wall color is so strong, but it works with the stark white trim and fireplace. The chocolate brown couch helps to anchor the room and I love the coordinating toile in raspberry and brown.

Do you think you could ever be this bold with your interior decorating?

New Lilly bedding to die for!

























I just stumbled across new lilly bedding and I love her new prints. The first is a quilt, which I like the idea of a quilt because in florida it gets so hot down here sometimes a light quilt is all you need, if that. It is available in hot pink and aqua, I definately think I am going to do the green walls with the hot pink quilt, like it is shown in the ad, but I could also do a soft yellow wall and the aqua quilt.

Have an opinion let me know?

I have included pictures of both colorways for the quilt and I also included pictures of the bath towels and rugs.

Have a great day!

Steve Tyrell new album!


I have loved Steve Tyrell since the father of the bride movies came around and now it seems he is releasing a new album. His voice is amazing and his music has a soft jazzy sound, perfect for dinner parties or just hanging out at home cooking (can you tell I like to cook. His new album is, Steve Tyrell live at the Cafe Carlyle, he has been performing there for the past 5 years and I am sure it will be another one of my favorites.

Town and Country dogs.


I just stumbled across the new version of Town and Country dogs and it is adorable. You can buy it on amazon or barnes and noble, I am sure it is worth the read. It features many socialite and celebrity dogs, and gives a peek into the life of these pampered pets, I think it would make a good Sunday afternoon book.......those little faces are killer. :)
