Sunny Start

nullnullnull

Good morning, loves! And welcome to a brand new week.

Waking up after a fabulous weekend. And in such great spirits. The weather has been amazing. The days are getting longer and I feel like spring is just around the corner. I can just about smell the fresh blooms filling the air.

This weekend was all about great times with friends which ended with our Oscar party last night. We didn't end up seeing all of the best picture nominees but we saw the majority and in the end in didn't really matter. We'll catch up eventually. Was really happy that The Artist won best picture. I loved that movie and was so utterly charmed by it. And I'm heading to see Hugo this week. :)

Did you watch the Oscars?

Wishing you all an amazing week filled with lots of happiness!

xoxo

Glorious photos. Happy Monday! I didn't watch the Oscars as they play really late here from the time change, but I'm sure I'll catch the highlights!! I saw some of the gowns worn, they were stunning. Will have to catch up with the movies too! Have a wonderful Monday and week doll xox

I did watch the Oscars, Dawn, was such a great night. Loved to see "The Artist" winning 5 Oscars and was really happy that Woody Allen won for Original Screenplay. As for the gowns, My absolute favourite was Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford.
I wish you a wonderful week! xo

So pretty, Dawn! Happy Monday to you, sweets. Best Oscars by far... Best production! I was amazed by the fashion... Angelina and that dress was UNREAL ~ although she could use a cheese burger {and some bacon}. J.Lo ~ geeeezzzzze she just gets more gorgeous with time. Gwyneth + Cameron ~ simple, sleek and I loved how understated their makeup + hair was. It takes a tooth pick to pull that off their gowns. I could keep going... :)

Dawn,
Your posts always make me happy!!! Beautiful soft pinks today.

Yes, I watched the Oscars even though I hadn't planned on it. Couldn't turn away. It seemed like the "seniors" night with many older actors winning.

Love seeing the sun shine today. Let's bring on Spring!

That beach photo is so dreamy. I wish I was there walking in the sand near the ocean right now.

I didn't watch the Oscars last night. I usually do but last night I just didn't feel like it for some strange reason. I have been catching up, especially on all of the gowns today.

Hi Dawn,
Yes, I watched it from start to finish. The red carpet this year was amazing! I cried when Octavia Spencer gave her acceptence speech : ) I did not see the Artist yet but it became rapidly apparent that I better. I also want to see Hugo. I think I want to see these movies more now because of all the sneak peeks we got during the show. Glad you had fun at your Oscar party. Loved the black/white cookies!!!

Have a wonderful week-
