A Lovely Dining Room with a View

I heart this kind of dining room
it has a refreshing view
simple furniture
but not lacking some
feminine touches.
I love the flowers
and that charming lighting 
fixture above.


I wouldn't mind starting my day with this.
Kahlua Hot Chocolate

I promise myself
to celebrate even my small victories
this year. Oh yes I will!

This is so pretty.

I love luxurious soaps
one of my guilty pleasures

Gorgeous Tulips.

I need to meditate more.

Dream shoes.

 Beautiful Porcelain Cups and Books
Oh I promise to add some to my collection
this year, last year I was too busy.

Cool Piano Stairway

Bern, Switzerland

Dresden, Germany

I love antique stores
like this. Somewhere in Italy.

 So beautiful


Its the time to make your wishes come true.

There will definitely more sparkle
on my outfits this year

 Gorgeous statement rings will be mine too.

Wow! Stunning!

 I heart wearing oversize watches
and cool pretty bracelets too.
This pic is so pretty.

This is a cool look to rock.

This is a happy pic
one of celebration
and yes I am reminded of the New Year.
I am so optimistic for this year 2014
I hope you are too.

It would be so nice to have this booties.

Love the dotted skirt.

Ooh la la

The umbrella is so pretty
and so is the gown.

Cool and chic!
I need to add more chicness this year.

Wonderful layering
and love the hat.

I heart the accessories,
I am the kind of girl who loves to rock a lot
of bracelets.

I love cool cold outfits like this.

Oh I heart the beanie.

This could be my resolution.

Happy New Year Ann!

That piano stairway is so cool, isn't it? Switzerland is beautiful. Jess visited there a few years ago and said it was amazing - everything was so green and groomed. The purple dress is dazzling, and you know purple is my favorite color so it caught my eye right away.

My wish for you in the new year is peace and joy. I look forward to seeing more of your sweet posts this year.

Every single picture in this post is stunning! Amazing photos; I can't even choose a favorite. How is the new year treating you? If you're like many of us and have resolved to spend a little less this year, we'd love to tell you about Dorco. We're a shaving company providing quality razors for up to 70% less than leading brands. Chances are you're paying way too much for razors. Plus, by switching to Dorco you can finally afford to change your blades often, which will result in happier, healthier skin (something else I think we all want in 2014!) You don't have to sacrifice quality to save so much, though. Read what others think about our products at, and check out our prices for yourself while you're there. Thanks for hearing us out, and we wish you all the best in 2014!
