Mine at Last

Don’t you just hate (or love, depending on which way you want to see it) when you go shopping for specific things and then you end up finding things that you really want but have nothing to do with the original thing you were supposed to buy?  That happens to me all the time.  And it happened to me in the midst of looking for things for the wedding I’m going to and my vacation, with these beautiful Barbara Bui oxfords.  I had been dreaming about them since (more…)

Today, The Lion in Jewels turns 3 and there was no better place to celebrate other than Disneyland, of course!  A huge part of my blog is Disneyland since I shoot most of my outfits there and well, Disneyland is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary also.  I got a special Diamond Celebration cupcake just for this occasion.  The cupcake is so decadent, it looks just like (more…)
