On the Web
You all have got to check out this article on Vogue about Nantclwyd Hall in Llanelidan Wales.  The house was built in the 1600s and is basically a modern day Downton Abbey in Wales.  I first read about it on Decor to Adore, you can read her article here.  The gardens are below, click on the article to see the front!!

If you follow along on the blog, you’ll know that we just got back from Hawaii!!  We spent the week there.  My favorite part of the trip, besides Spa day, was going kayaking in the ocean then snorkeling! We kayaked to a spot where turtles are known to hang… and sure enough! There they were!!  We also saw tons of schools of fish.

Below, the beach. That day a shark was spotted so no one was in the water!

Snorkel time! Below, a Moorish Idol (like Gill in Finding Nemo!)

School of fish!

Pretty clear day to Kayak!


Where I spent the majority of my days… on the inner tube on the lazy river.

Spotted – Black and White Edition
I saw these pretty pieces online and put together this black and white mood board I really love this shirt.  I saw a *TON* of people wearing Panama Hats as well as these très chic Dior sunglasses at the pool in Hawaii! This Bien Fait (meaning Well Done in French) tote is only $5!
