Mellow Monday

Good Monday morning, lovelies! How was your weekend? Mine was great. Filled with lots of relaxation and then the Oscars last night ended the weekend on a perfect note. And I was thrilled because all of my favorites won...The King's Speech, Melissa Leo, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and my ultimate favorite actor Colin Firth. That never happens :)

Of course I'm a little bit tired today because I stayed up late but it was well worth it. Mornings like this call for a little sweetness and lot of caffeine. The perfect way to ease into the week ahead.

How about all of you? How was your weekend? Did you watch the Oscars? What did you think?

xoxo

Exhausting and I took a three day weekend! Three birthday parties, shopping, wedding planning and not a night at home... Started the week with lots of caffeine also! Sal x

Have a beautiful new week, dear friend

It's a 3-day weekend here in Spain, so still chilling. I had to record the Oscars (because of time-zone differences), so will relax and watch it today. Really pleased Colin Firth did well. As a fellow Brit I always felt he was a little under-estimated.

I stayed up late, too, although just from nerves or whathaveyou. This morning I head out to hang a small photographic show of mine in a regional art center. I would love to be as elegant as that last picture as I sip my coffee.

Could these photos be any more perfect? It's like you always know my favourite things and always inspire me in the most beautiful way. Macarons and tea look delightful right now, and love those sunglasses too! Happy Monday Dawn. :)

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

I'm realllly happy with the winners, especially The Kings Speech and best actor/actress. So deserved! I wasn't able to watch it though.. :( But my weekend was great! I'm happy yours was too.

SabinePsynopsis said...

I would have loved to watch the Oscars, but alas so very, very late here. Everyone is excited for Colin Firth - he does deserve it so. And Natalie Portman, too... What a role! xoxo

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

style'n said...

ok well if you must know I had too much wine and port at 3pm in the afternoon at a friends place so I was useless last night. I managed to watch the red carpet and then packed for my trip and I completely missed the show :(

Silver Strands said...

oooh - those macaroons look YUM

Oh how I wish today was a mellow Monday for me… instead it’s a frantic frenzy! No Oscars for me BUT they are DVR’d… I gave into the hubs and allowed him to watch the Heels play ball… boo! I hope you enjoyed your relaxing weekend… why do they go so fast?!

B. in the Know said...

The weekend has some not so fun events (like computer crashing...but it is getting better!), but loved the Oscars last night. It was a great way to end the evening - and I was happy with most of the wins, always making it more fun! Hope you are having a fabulous start to your week!
Much love,
B

Samantha Elisabeth said...

I know how you feel. I'm a little wiped out from staying up to watch it, but I was so happy The King's Speech won! I've been dying to see it, and my suite mate told me it was amazing. And I almost though it'd lose out to Inception or The Social Network! Lovely pictures as always!

Katie said...

Watching the Oscars was a great way to end the weekend :)

Colores said...

I was sick in bed yesterday so watched the Oscars from about 2pm- enjoyed it and was happy with most of the wins. Definitely in need of some sweet hot drinks today- gorgeous inspiration!

Your photos always take my breath away.

Couldn't stay awake for the Oscars.

Diana Mieczan said...

The Oscar's were great and I loved the fashion. I also got all teary when Colin Firth won..I loved his speech:) Hope you are having a lovely Monday, sweetie

Martina said...

Mellow-yellow monday - sweats and tea! Didn't watch the Oscars, but love to hear about it now. Very pretty pix here!

Victoria | vmac+cheese said...

Per usual, I loved watching the Oscars, but I thought the hosting was a little...weird. Anne especially was just not what I expected. In any case, I'm with you -- I could definitely use a bit of tea and some Laduree macarons this morning!

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

glad I watched the Oscars but I really was bummed that AH annoyed me so much- oh well.

Krystal said...

hello!!
i watched the king's speech on friday and it was SO SO GOOD!

tanvii.com said...

I had fun tweeting about Oscars with you and others last night :) The first pic with Diane looks lovely :)

Tucker said...

I don't watch the oscars or any awards shows. which makes me feel weird to admit. do love to see recaps of the fashion though.

these photos are lovely, as usual, Dawn!

Taj Acosta said...

I was so glad the King's Speech won too! It is one of my favorite things to do, sit on the couch and watch all the pretty dresses! xo

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

didnt watch it, but loved seeing some of the beautiful dresses!

Styles 'n Cream said...

Of course I watched the Oscars. I loved the red carpet and some of the dresses were absolutely gorgeous but the show and the hosts disappointed. I had such high expectations for Anne and James Franco.

Jess said...

I MUST go see the Kings Speech after watching the Oscars!! Sounds pretty amazing.

dCc said...

Hi my darling! I am so glad you had such a nice weekend! Mine was filled with lots of wedding planning and Oscar watching :)

Love those greens, big fan of emerald green! XX!

Diana said...

Beautiful, relaxing photos. Love the tea one...reminds me of a chinese restaurant I went to with my best friend! The Oscars were great, loved that Natalie Portman won! Anne Hathaway did a great job. Love your blog! Have a great day! :)
