Feeling in the mood for romance and whimsy this week.  I’m getting ready to jet off on a European vacation with my Love, so my mind is wandering to beautiful sites and peaceful places.  I want to dress beautifully effortless, wander the streets of a new city, eat delicious food and experience something new.  I’m in the mood for adventure and romance!  If only life were like a vacation at all times… I guess that is the key to happiness; finding joy in the mundane by seeing things in a different light.  Sorry for the late Eye Kandee. It’s been one of those weeks; Katie is traveling for work and as you can see I’m having a hard time focusing.  Lol!  Better late than never right?  I hope this Eye Kandee inspires romance and adventure for you this week, even if it is just by seeing things in a new way!  Ciao!

Furry Friday….Rainy Days

Although our furry friends don’t enjoy the rain, these rainy days are some of my favorite.  It’s getting to be that time of year where we all begin to appreciate the comforts of snuggling up in front of your fireplace or lingering in the warmth of your bed.  Not all animals are blessed with these comforts and there are thousands of shelters around the country that don’t have the means to keep all of their animals warm.  We can help!!  Round up all of those shabby towels and blankets that you have been meaning to take to good will and take them to your local animal shelters.  What an easy way to make a difference!  It’s finally starting to feel like October, so cuddle up with your pets, enjoy a cup of joe and indulge in a good book.  Thanks for following!!

Just one more reason to love October…Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!  Wear some pink this month to help spread awareness or participate in a Race for the Cure in your area.  Isn’t it great to be a woman?  Embrace the many things that make us who we are…embrace all things feminine and think pink!!!

Happy Autumn!!  Enjoying homemade soup, pumpkin spice lattes and the sound of stepping on crunchy leaves…just a few of our favorite things during our favorite time of year!  I had to throw in the picture of the cows because it reminds me of home, and of course, Jersey cows are just so darn cute!!

Love Us Some Kate

I recently purchased the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar because the lovely Kate Hudson was gracing the cover!  The photos are just amazing and I wanted to share them in case you happened to miss them.  We have both been huge fans of Kate since she stole our hearts as Penny Lane in Almost Famous ten years ago.  What an example of style and grace.  She has a gypsy spirit and a radiant energy that definitely commands attention, and we have always admired her hippie style.  These images are so feminine with a little old school glamour.  We can’t seem to get enough, and the red Valentino gown…I mean, AMAZING!!!  Hope you enjoy!  You can read Kate’s interview at harpersbazaar.com

Monday already????  The weekends sure do fly by!  On a positive note, it’s that day of the week to start off fresh and to get excited about what the week has to offer!  I was feeling a peaceful vibe on Sunday and was trying to channel my inner bohemian spirit with some of today’s Eye Kandee selections!  Lately I have been trying to live a little more free and without stress on what the future holds!  There is something so admirable about the bohemian way of life.  A way of living with no room for self-doubt and insecurities.  It’s also an uninhibited courageous way of living in each moment and making sure that you are happy and content with the simple things! We have both been feeling this way and will be striving to live more liberated but yet still grounded!  Hope everyone has a peaceful Monday and a happy October!

Furry Friday…Stars & Their Pets

There are so many things we love about this time of year and one in particular is it’s the beginning of award season.  We are fascinated with the Hollywood celebrity just as much as the next person and love the movies!!  Here are a few great shots of some of our favorite classic stars and their pets.  Seriously, nothing makes you love a celebrity more than finding out they have a heart for animals.  We love it when stars use their celebrity to help create awareness. Actor Ian Somerhalder is a perfect example of this, he founded the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.  They are currently working on opening an animal sanctuary that creates a safe place for all the outcast animals that have been neglected, mistreated and ultimately misunderstood.  As well as bringing them together with kids and bullies into an environment where their hearts can grow and flourish.  What a great cause!!  Check out their website to learn how you can help bring this sanctuary to fruition.  Remember, if nothing else, creating awareness is a way of helping so please share, share, share!!!  Have a beautiful weekend!

New York City Ballet & Valentino

We love it when dance and fashion meet and what could be more fabulous than Valentino and the New York City Ballet.  For one night only, Valentino came out of retirement to design costumes for New York City Ballet’s Fall Gala at the famous Lincoln Center.  This collaboration was influenced by board member Sarah Jessica Parker who is a long time friend of Valentino.  The evening was full of puffed tutus, bright red and pink pointe shoes and black and white dresses with surprise sneak peeks of red tulle when the dancers jumped and turned.

This is exactly why so many little girls grow up dreaming of becoming ballerinas; the fantasy of dancing on stage every night in beautiful tutus and tiaras.  I guess I never fully grew up, because I still get giddy when I put on a fabulous costume.  This is one of the many reasons I love performing.  When you’re on stage you lose yourself in the character and the story and for that moment you’re transcended.  Rapture, romance, whimsy, magic…if only life were more like the ballet!

What an honor it must have been to be a part of NYCB’s ode to fashion and dance in these amazing costumes.  Valentino was quoted as saying in the night’s program, “Ballet speaks to me because of the romance I see in it, I realize the dancers do so much to be perfect, and in high fashion I always wanted perfection.”  Amen Valentino, amen!

Case of the Mondays?  As much as we hate to admit it…it happens.  The great thing about Monday is the feeling of renewal.  It’s another opportunity to get back on track, set new goals and accomplish more.  Here is a random selection of Eye Kandee to help inspire your week, because when we stop and open our eyes there is beauty all around.  This life is pretty amazing!  Happy Monday!!

Just thought we could all use a good laugh today…

{Dog-Shaming}

Hey, don’t judge!  We all have our little idiosyncrasies.  Right?  We just discovered this Dog Shaming blog and think it’s freaking hilarious!!  The guilty expression on all of their faces is priceless!  If you have a pet I’m sure you can relate to some of these acts of shame.  They are, at times cute little messes, but oh so worth it!!

And remember… it’s Puppy Mill Awareness Month, so please help spread the word.  Here are a few links to share… Dogster, ASPCA, Puppy Mill Awareness Facebook

Help educate, help make a difference and make adoption your first choice.  Hope you have an adventurous weekend!!
