One lovely blog Award.

Jessica over at ~ Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping
tagged me with this.... thanks Jessica.
One lovely blog Award and so now I have to answer a few questions she has given.

What is your current obsession?

Well it would have to be baking.

I have been making some dough decorations (can't eat them though) and some biscuit baking for our Tea Party tomorrow. I will share some photos of recipes tomorrow for some easy peasy biscuits.

What is your horoscope and do you relate to it?

I am a Taurus and if you ask my husband he says I can be pretty stubborn.
I think my good qualities are my patience and reliability.

What are you wearing today?

A pair of shorts and a tee shirt.

What was the last thing you bought?

Well it was groceries yesterday but that doesn't really count.
The last thing I bought was a lovely book on Valentino for my daughter's birthday gift.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?

Jessica is a lovely Lady and she is doing one of the neatest and hardest jobs.
Being a Mum to two little darlings and another on the way.
It is hard work and a 24 hour a day job.
She does the most beautiful craft work and is so talented. I do not know when she gets the time to do all the things she does!

A guilty pleasure?

Licorice allsorts.

What is your must have item for Summer?

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would it be?

Paris! It is such an exciting City.

What is your favourite piece of clothing from your closet?

It would have to be the black Chanel jacket my husband gave me for my 40th birthday gift. It is made so well, timeless and I just love to wear it.

What is your dream job?

I always wanted to be an Interior Designer - had sent away for some information, but never got around to going any further.

What is your favourite magazine? I love to read a lot of different mags but I do enjoy sitting down with a cup of coffee and reading Victoria magazine.

What do you consider a Fashion faux pas?

Mutton dressed as lamb or anything that is a size too small.

Describe your personal style?

I like to wear classic and simple, elegant clothes.
Love to wear black.

What are you going to do after this?

Go and vacuum the house ( should be doing this now instead of sitting on the computer and then I am going to have lunch with my husband. ( it is his birthday tomorrow.)

Three styling tips that work for you?

The first decision is what to wear? Take time to plan and choose your outfit.

Find the perfect clothes and accessories to make the best of your figure.

Dressing well can make you feel good, gain confidence and joie de vivre.

What are you proud of?

I am proud of our children who have turned into responsible young Adults.

So I am to tag 8 others.
Those to follow are to answer the questions on the blog and replace one question that they dislike and make one of their own up.
I understand if you are too busy to do this and I know a lot of you have probably already done this, but would love to hear about you and your lovely blog.

  5. What fun to read and learn more about you. I need a lecture on 'how and why to dress for success'. I was talking to my husband this afternoon about my clothes. We have been working hard around our house and I am ready to THROW my work clothes away and start wearing my 'good' clothes. I am so tired of looking 'bummy' all the time! Could you write a post about clothes? I need some inspiration! And thanks for thinking of me! You're sweet!

  8. Stubborn is GOOD & don't let anyone tell you otherwise Carolyn! Lovely to know you are an Earth sign just like me - without us to settle things down, the world around us would be chaos!
    Millie ^_^

  9. Hi Diane,

    I liked it when you said you are ready to throw away the work clothes to wear the good clothes.
    I would like to write a post about clothes. Our daughter is at Uni at Fashion Design so she might be able to help me.

    Thank you Jennifer and I think you were the lucky recipient of this award last week, so congratulations

    Thank you Kris for visiting and your kind words.

    thanks Millie, I do not think my husband would agree that stubborn
    is good. I am normally pretty easy to get along with.

    Hi Fifi,

    I love the Valentino dress.
    It is a beautiful book and has the most amazing clothes, through all the years that he made wonderful garments.
