A Little This, A Little That...

Love This...




And This...




Absolutely Stunning...



This Too...



Hello Handsome...




Yes Please!!!



 These Too!!!




I adore the look of a headscarf...how about you? Any tips on making them stay put in your hair? I always have trouble with mine slipping, even when anchored with bobby pins. Please do share any tips if you have them. :)


I came across this image of Brooke Shields recently...must have been from the late 70's/early 80's. Look how timeless and classic her outfit is. I still wear similar versions of this look today (minus the chaps and shoulder pads)...how about you?



Has it been a good start to the New Year for you? Mine is going well so far. I've packed away all of the Christmas decorations, and have been cleaning and decluttering...always nice to start the new year off with a 'clean slate' (or clean house in this case). I've also managed to pick up a few of my wishlist items at really great sale prices, so that is always fun, too.  Have you scored any good deals on your wishlist items lately?

Any special plans for you this weekend? I will be finishing up my house cleaning, making a trip to the market to re-stock the frig and pantry, attending church service, preparing lessons for our homeschool (which starts back up again on Monday), and watching the Season 3 Premiere of Downton Abbey (of course). I would love to take another day trip (check out our last one here), but I'm not sure there will be time this weekend...hopefully though. :)

That's it for now...I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Do you have anything fun and exciting planned? Just going to relax at home? Please do share! I always love to hear from you! :)

 xoxo,

  2. We'll be busy getting our son back to school, and then taking him for dinner! Until then I'm just trying to control the laundry and cooking/clean-up.
    The real work begins on Monday, a month long deep clean of my house and another de-clutter. Always need to do that after Christmas!
    Love the images here FFM, you have such a great eye!

    1. Thanks phiphi! :) I also love the Brooke Shields photo. She was such a natural beauty, and the outfit is totally relevant today, too. It doesn't look like there are any responses on the headscarf, so perhaps noone is still wearing them. I'll let you know if I end up finding a way to secure them though. :)

    1. Hi Jean Z! I think that white denim in winter works better if it is a 'winter' or off-white, as opposed to a bright white. I have seen bright white worn as well, but I personally prefer the softer white for myself. It seems that most pants/denim that are made in winter weights usually are a softer white, anyways. I do love the look of the white in both pictures above...so soft and beautiful.

      Oh yes...Jon Hamm is quite the looker! I'm really looking forward to the return of Mad Men! :)

  6. Love all these!

    Nothing special this weekend except continuing to make headway on getting organized. This is the last of my holiday break I decided to take from work. ;(

    1. Hi Tiffany Rose! It sounds as if this is the last weekend of holiday for most of us...so sad, isn't it? Good luck on your organizing! It's always a great thing to do at the beginning of the year. :)

  7. I love that picture of Brooke Shields. Models today are too thin. She looks healthy and beautiful in this picture (cute preppy clothes, too!). I still have some Christmas stuff to put away but the biggest parts are done. Trying to find the willpower to start the long-overdue diet!

    1. Hi cate! I also love the photo of Brooke Shields, and agree with you that the models today are too thin. In the photo she does look very healthy, not to mention she was such a natural beauty. I would also love to have that hair! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
