Sweet Start

Good Monday morning! How was your weekend, lovelies? Mine was wonderful. I had a fabulous, albeit very short trip to Philadelphia. Didn't get to see or do that much outside of the hotel but that was fabulous in itself.

We did walk around Rittenhouse Square and went to drinks at a lovely little French place called Rouge and then to dinner after. Then Sunday was spent at the hockey game which was amazing. We had 3rd row seats and our team won! Go Rangers! :)

Now here we are ready to start the week. Oh why are the weekends so short? I would do so much better with a 4 day work week, wouldn't you? Think I need a little sweetness to get me motivated.

So tell me. What did you all do this weekend? Hope it was wonderful!

Go Rangers! We had dim sum at a great place (in a room meant for 15 people!) and Vietnamese food with friends. Mmm for food filled weekends!

Glad you had a lovely weekend. Everybody would do better with a 4 day week I reckon. Although running my own biz feels like a 7 day week sometimes ;)

These pictures are so dreamy. I adore the lingerie/body in the first image and the model is so lusciously sensuous too. My weekend was spent amongst the early spring flowers in nature.

Sounds like a beautiful timeout for you. I had a fun weekend, as India won the world cup in Cricket after 28 years. It was celebration and party time for the cricket crazy country. Still tired from the partying.

Ann said...

Love those yummy goodies...
if only I can look as good as the woman above after eating those sweets...
Oh but knowing me, I'll easily give in to temptation ♥

Hi Dawn, sounds like you had a fab time. Weekend was a bit of a wash-out for me as I wasn't feeling 100%. But I still managed to do some things I love doing from the comfort of my sofa! So pleased your earrings from us finally arrived. Do post a pic of you wearing them :-)
Have a wonderful week sweetheart xx

Martina said...

Talk about it - a 4 day work week would be fantastic! I just need more creative SPACE! Apart from recreation. And meeting friends. A 2 days weekend is too short for everything! Can i have a macarron please - i'll make us espresso to go with it ;)

Colores said...

Happy knowing you had a perfect weekend! Mine was so fully packed with nice things: shopping, some gardening, baking and a flea market visit. ALl this topped with sunny weather! I fully agree with you! Why are weekends so short! Have a perfect Monday!Kisses

classiq said...

I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was lovely too and I'm ready for a new week. A sweet bite sounds great on this cloudy Monday we're having. Hope you're off to a sunnier week! Ada

Your weekend sounds like it was a lot of fun! My husband and I had a dirty roomate who finally moved out, and we spent the whole weekend gutting the house and cleaning it out. I feel light as air now! Woo!

Happy Monday love!

Sandy a la Mode said...

yummy! i have a true weakness for macaroons and i haven't even had that many in my life!! :(

B. in the Know said...

Glad you had an enjoyable weekend in Philly! My weekend was not much of a weekend at all due to things being crazy at work - but I totally agree, I would do far better with work four days and three days of weekend - that would just be wonderful. I think I would be a better employee that way!
Much love,
B

Oh, so many tasty treats! Love these images (and long for some macaroons now). I had a lovely weekend as well... great weather and just relaxing with friends. I agree with the four-day week. Or perhaps Wednesdays should officially be a day off, so the week won't seem so long?

Design Elements said...

sweet! swet! I started my day with yoga and tiramisu :-) happy new week

Polyvorina said...

How very à-propos! I went out into the city to get myself some macarons this weekend! They were amazing. Macarons are so pretty! I had to take pics for my blog, though waiting til I was done that so we could eat them was torture! ;)

Pistachio said...

Ha! Must have been a trend this weekend. Went to Greenwich, CT for the day on Saturday and did some shopping. Wanted to get out of the city too!
Anyway, love the blog, first time visiting and plan on visiting again soon.
Cheers!!

A 3 day weekend makes SO much sense to me. Happy to hear you had a fabulous weekend and pass the macaroons- so delish/pretty!

Kristin said...

Rittenhouse Square is so gorgeous!

Bromeliad said...

Not a moment to relax all weekend. However, the weather got better. It "almost" feels like spring.

Dancing Branflake said...

Glad you had a fabulous weekend! Sounds fun and relaxing.

coolkids said...

glad you had a great time! our weeekned was way too short as usual.

very married said...

glad you had a great weekend. we didn't do much but i think i'm on the way to a cold... and just when spring is on the way!

Amanda said...

We should totally do that, make the weekends longer and work week shorter...maybe we could start a twitter hash tag :)

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Dawn, you have the most lovely weekends sometimes!!! Because my posts are always on Monday, my weekends are often spent working, but because it is the Ooh La Frou Frou post, it's definitely sometimes like playing. Actually, I'm taking the afternoon off today to play with a girlfriend .. lunch and shopping ... yay! Gorgeous images, as always, darling .. so had you had some relaxing moments this weekend!! And hope your week is just as lovely! xo

BigAppleNosh said...

A weekend in a great hotel sounds like a good plan to me!

Paris in Pink said...

Dollface are you trying to torture me with these photos of DIVINE desserts?!

Sounds like you had a beautiful weekend in Philly - a city I still have yet to visit but so eager to see someday.

Big hugs xx

Rachel @ Little Bits of Lovely said...

Sounds like a perfect weekend escape! How sweet are macroons? So delicious! Hope you had a fab Monday xo

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Sounds like the weekend went perfectly as planned, what a fun getaway! And on another note, am I the only person in the world that has actually never tried french macaroons??? Everyone loves to use the images and they look delish, but haven't ever done it myself! I feel left out...that is going to be my goal for the week: eat french macaroons. (c;

Isabel said...

these photos are gorgeous! i usually work on the weekends so mine are pretty lame.

Tamra @walkswithBella said...

happy to hear you had a great weekend!! Ours was lovely, we celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary at Hotel Griffou in Greenwich Village. Have you been there?!?! The new chef really turned it up a whole new level and the decor is fascinating!

Best, tamra

Kavery said...

A four day week? Best idea ever. But finding jobs that allow that? Next to impossible!

Collette Osuna said...

Glad you had a nice weekend..mine was super busy with house stuff and shopping...I went back to working Mondays so I can have the WHOLE weekend off....go me:)

style'n said...

Oh I totally agree Dawn-a 4 day workweek would be great. We had a nice weekend but today I worked out and I must have caught something b/c my throat is not feeling quite right :( I have not been to Philly in so long. Sounds like you had a great time there.

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Hi hunny! Sounds like a perfect weekend to me! :) If your in a stunning hotel there's no reason to leave! BTW... weekends are NEVER long enough! xoxo

Jess said...

Glad you had a great weekend trip. I spent mine doing laundry and trying to recover from our Florida trip. Now back to work :( Ughh.

Thank you for your sweet words about Styled! The desserts look absolutely divine, I love macaroons!

The photos are amazing. Love how the macarons match the lingerie. The weekend was pretty good, filled with work though. Thanks for sharing and drop by me too,soon.

Cheers.

Dawn said...

Hi Dawn, sorry I missed you this time!!! So I guess the Ritz was a hit? Did you buy anything that I need to know about? I ended up watching my little niece for my sister...so exhausting but I am glad I could give my sis a break. Drop in when you get a chance darling...Dawnxo

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Sounds like a great weekend! I had a good one too! It is so hard to get back into the normal routine. This may be a long week....
Love these colorful and sweet pictures today!

buyaionaccount said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend for you! Outside dinner with loved ones are really great even with friends. It makes it even more fun not knowing monday would come so soon, so exhausting.

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

These images are a sweet treat, thank you;) You had a lovely weekend! Weekends being short is our standard talking subject on Sunday's, haha. Well its good to know almost all of the weekends feel so great that you want them to last longer, I think we're lucky:)

Bestie said...

I do love Philly and Rittenhouse Square. My husband lived there for about three months when we were engaged and I loved weekend visits and exploring the city!

More than Philly though, I love french macaroons! Beautiful photo.

honey my heart said...

María said...

Glad to hear about your intense but wonderful days in Philadelphia. mines also were nice. xxx
