On the Net

A guide to how to create the best ice cream sundae at home! YES please!


I’ve been super busy this week! We drove down to Southern California for a graduation.  I went to my favorite pastry shop in LA – Bottega Louie. Then we toured expensive model homes in Newport Beach for fun. We ate at Red O, a Mexican restaurant by Top Chef Master Rick Bayless.  More shopping… then to the graduation! Busy busy!

The Kitten Tales

Remember I talked about the kittens last week? The Mama cat moved one kitten and left two.  Unfortunately I went to check on them today and one of them had died overnight! We had been helping feeding them but I suppose that one was sick or something. Now we only have one kitten left… as I don’t know where the mom put the other kitten.


Well, I’ve been looking at these flats by Chloe for a long time and finally bought them! They cost a pretty penny but they are so comfortable! I had a hard time deciding on a color… ultimately I went with black! I just found some online in white for half off.  The leather on them is so soft; I can see myself owning several pairs in different colors.  

I was actually thinking I was going to buy this flat below, the Varina by Salvatore Ferragamo… but I didn’t realize all their colors were patent leather.   I tried them on in the store. It was really stiff and actually uncomfortable. It was a real disappointment! They had some cute colors, but I’m not going to spend $$$ on an uncomfortable shoe!  Anyway, I highly recommend the ballet flat by Chloe!
