I have been Instagramming far less lately. I’m not sure why, but I’m starting to worry the app is losing its power over me 😉 Or maybe I’ve just been busier with other things lately.

flowers, gifts

Wednesday, September 4th, marked our seven year wedding anniversary… seven years. WOW. It was Labor Day Weekend 2006 we had a trip to Vegas planned and a few days prior to leaving, and about three months after getting engaged on my 30th birthday, we decided to tie the knot in a private ceremony with just the two of us vs having a large wedding. It was the best decision we ever made 😉 I woke up seven years later to beautiful bunches of flowers, September issues of fashion magazines, and Gucci sunglasses, and was assured that this man and my best friend, knows me better than anyone else on the planet. We have something special, and we are so lucky.

diy cat ears

Last week’s DIY Leather Cat Ears… and someone mentioned they were going to do a mouse version… SO CUTE!! And just as simple as cutting out round ears rather than pointed ones.

nails, nail art

My Princess Jasmine Gemstone Nails from last week.

avarcas pons

Favorite comfy sandals Avarcas Pons in French Blue, worn with my new favorite comfy J Brand Cargo Pants. It’s been warm {in the 80’s} and balmy here, but nice in comparison to the weather my family and friends have been suffering through back home in LA. Feeling grateful.

Happy Weekend Lovecats!

Hope you’re having a wonderful one!

    Stargazer Lilies are my favorite, too. Hey, the name “Stargazer” reminds me of you! Have a wonderful week, Cinderella Sunshine! (Hope you spent a lot of time relaxing at your beautiful vacation-resort.)

    Love the hair!

    You inspired me to do wet sets (years ago) on my hair.

    instagramming is still fun, but i think maybe it is a little less thrilling. i still like it, but i am no longer obsessed by it. kind of like blogging!

    Happy anniversary! My husband and I actually got married in vegas, just the two of us. I am so glad we did that! We did end up having a ceremony later on for our parents, but I’ll always be glad it was just us for the real thing! ♥ the cat ears too!
