Java Anyone?

Good morning all!
(Anyone? Hello...?)

I am at my favorite java cafe...Peet's and enjoying my latte with The Divine Miss Em. I must tell you that Wi-Fi is wonderful!
For all of you with a fast internet signal, you may not understand how giddy I am. My internet signal at the country house is dial-up speed at best...but give up my country house? Not on your life!
Any excuse to come to Peet's is okay by me ;)
So while I update this laptop, I am perusing some lovely websites to cheer up the day that a lot of folks dread...MONDAY.
Being self-employed, I don't dread any day of the's fabulous to wake up in the morning, find I am still sucking oxygen and look forward to what the day may bring!
(And just so you don't think I am blowing smoke up anywhere...not everyday is wine and roses..some are 'whine and corpse-plant if I am to be honest with you, but I still see the plant when it is ;)

As I am taking part in the "twentypeices project", I am looking into  using black and white in my wardrobe....and adding splashes of color with accessories when I wish....

And then the Vogue 'Age Issue' is out...LOVED the article on Virginie Mouzat!

A lovely dress post from

and a fashion show recap, courtesy of "TheGimletMommy" over at

These look as good as my latte!
(ok, maybe a bit better ;)

Sorry for my absence...

I lost my internet connection about a month ago and while I have some of it's about at dial-up speed.
I'll be back with more posts next week.

Summer Hair

Summer has finally arrived here in California.
With a vengeance I might add for winter trying to horn in on its time!
(we here didn't have went from 56 two Sundays ago to 96 today!)
The humidity is up a bit here still (less fire danger...always look on the bright side of things!)
and my hair says...."UGH". No way will I stay curled or unfrizzed.
And I am not a fan of alot of product in the heat!
So my job is to find some vintage hairstyles for the this maybe...

(It is my firm belief that Miss Von Teese could wear a burlap sack and still look elegant!)

So here are a few sites I am exploring...maybe you need some summer hairstyle help too?

Casey has a few good posts as well...

I may be here awhile...

Well, that's a start!
Any sites that you would recommend?
