Happy Birthday, Bella!

Just enjoying the day with our favorite pug, who’s celebrating #9 today.

Hope you’re having a relaxing Sunday.

Wherever in the world you happen to be, make it a good one! xox-M

Ravishing Rosamund

Ravishing Rosamund

She may not have taken home an Oscar last night but Rosamund Pike was certainly a winner on the red carpet. The Gone Girl star looked flawless in a red Givenchy gown – one of my favorite looks of the night.

And The Oscar Goes To…

And The Oscar Goes To…

No surprise after the above review that my vote for Best Actor goes to Michael Keaton. And while I think Birdman is clearly a dazzling piece of cinema, in the Best Picture category I’m rooting for Boyhood.

Here are some of my other Oscar predictions:

Best Actress

Julianne Moore –  Still Alice

Best Supporting Actress

Patricia Arquette –  Boyhood

Best Supporting Actor

J.K.Simmons - Whiplash

Best Director

Alejandro González Iñárritu -  BIRDMAN

Hope you’ve been enjoying the photography these last many weeks. My self-imposed respite from posting on a regular basis is the result of desperately trying to get settled in a new city. It’s taking a little longer than I had anticipated.

(Okay, a lot longer.)

Without question the plastic tarps and dry wall dust coloring my world right now (the result of a new home refresh) have really started to get to me.

Still, outside my door, the transition hasn’t been all that bad, thanks in large part to the incredibly kind people I’ve met since landing in this charming, storybook town.

In the meantime, to coincide with Spring, which is right around the corner, I’ll be unveiling a newly refreshed website very soon. Can’t wait to share it with you!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be.

Make it a good one! xox~M

Had a little too much fun last night, so sharing this slightly off-balance image of my beloved city seems kind of apropos :)
