Spring Table Setting Ideas

Ready for spring? Start by refreshing your table with crisp linens, potted blooms, and a pop of bright color. In Barbados we don't experience seasons really, for the most part it's consistently sunny with a rainy reason however it is still nice to change up your decor and spring is the perfect time to do it. House Beautiful put together a stunning array of Spring Tabletops full of decor inspiration.  For Tory Burch, setting the table can be the most creative outlet of all. "Just try different things," she says. "Patterns you wouldn't think to put together can surprise you, and look great."

Celebrity Kitchens

I don't know where the fascination comes from with celebrities and celebrity homes but I for one enjoy seeing how the other half lives. Celebrity closets are by far the highlight of celebrity home tours in my opinion as an excess of Birkin's and Louboutins are on display. These kitchens that I saw on PopSugar caught my eye not because of their grandeur as ordinarily celeb homes do but because of their character and overall good design. See the whole story by the ever talented Angela Elias on Popsugar here

Seriously Stylish Kids

Who said kids can't be fashionable too? While it may not be terribly practical to shell out lots of cash on expensive baby and kids clothes sometimes it's hard to resist. It recently came to my attention that there are kids fashion blogs and while I'm still undecided on how I feel about the whole idea there is no denying that cute kids and stylish clothes are a win - win for me. Who What Wear recently compiled a list of "21 kids who dress better than you" and I've picked my favourite outfits, these kids have undeniable swag and style! See the whole story and list here

Easter Decorating Ideas

Easter weekend is upon us and this means different things for different people.  Last year I was in West Palm Beach and went to Christ Fellowship at City place both Friday and Sunday and it was a wonderful experience. I am in Saba this year with my family and celebrating a little differently than last but still keeping the reason for the season at the forefront of my mind. Apart from the obvious reason for Easter it is also a good excuse to decorate, and in my family eat Cadbury's Mini Eggs. Below are some of my favourite Easter decorating ideas from Better Homes and Gardens.
