The Bride.....stunning, radiant and visibly happy.

The dress...beautiful, elegant and understated (Grace Kelly-esque).

The brothers royal...graceful and so in sync...

The setting...magnificent...

The once somber..

..and joyous..

The matriarchs... classic, restrained and graceful...

The well-heeled and their hats... a true spectacle..

The odd-balls...almost sinister...

The newly-minted Duke & Duchess of love and showing it...

The ride back in the carriage...stuff every little girls dreams are made of...

The pageantry..regal and oh-so-British...

The kiss...real, warm and a little playful...

The future...happily ever after ( hopefully)!

Bringing Jack home...

With the royal  nuptials of William & Catherine looming large on the horizon, it seemed almost mandatory that I do a post about the flavour of the month... 'all things British'!....Don't worry, I will stear clear of the plethora of royal wedding-related memorabilia and stories and I will also not speculate about Kate's wedding dress..since in a little over 12 hours the world will get to see that much talked-about 'frock' and all the other royal bells  and whistles!!

Instead I'll share some images of ways to channel some Cool Britannia in your house ( if you are so inclined ) bringing home the Union Jack...

Runway to room...

The serenity of the palest shade of aqua combines gloriously with vibrancy of deep coral to create this beautiful ensemble...

Fendi SS2010 well as this stunning vignette of a hallway seen through the dining room...

39 going on 40...

No ..not me ( I still have a couple of years to go)..its the mercury that I'm talking about!! In degrees Celsius...(102 going on 104 in Fahrenheit)...and it is just the begining... a couple more weeks and we'll be roasting...since 48+ ( approx. 119F ) is par for the course around that time of the year.

All my faculties slow down ( mainly the brain) with the rising temperatures and the temper soares in tandem with the mercury...not a great combination to have ...

If only I had this little oasis in my backyard to cool-off...

..I promise I would be serenity personified throughout summer...that's all I'm asking for..nothing too fancy!

It's all yellow...

"How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun." --Vincent Van Gogh also for joy, happiness and warmth..indeed a color that stands for cheerful energy. I do love me some sunshine yellow..but my favourite shade of yellow is one with the slightest hint of red in it..closer to mimosa and even marigold ( the color of my header)...a little deeper color but still vibrant and joyous.  Here's a whole lot of good cheer coming your way..take it all in !!
