Owl Love

I recently lost my beloved owl necklace and I am absolutely bereft (have I mentioned that I am positively obsessed with owls? No? Ok, I digress). After carving out the appropriate mourning period for my lost little bird, I am now on the hunt for a new owl (but who naturally can never truly replace the original in my eyes. Sniff). These lovelies below strike my fancy, and they're actually from by the same designer who made my old necklace, Moss Mills. Only now, I'm at a loss for which one to choose.

Shall I choose Exhibit A?

Exhibit B?

Or how about Exhibit C? It's like two for the price of one!

Or should I stick with what I know and love, and pick a silver version of my one-and-only owl (I can't believe I found it online! Oh, how I love you world wide web!).

Volcanic Woes

The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, from which a large plume of ash has risen into the atmosphere and is now hovering over the UK and Scandinavia, is putting a serious dent in my weekend plans. The dense ash cloud has grounded some 5,000 planes and has delayed the much-anticipated arrival of a couple British friends of mine with whom I was very much looking forward to spending a fun weekend. I'm crossing my fingers that the air space opens up sooner rather than later, and in the meantime, I'll be checking and re-checking the BBC for updates. Womp.

A Food Revolution

Is anyone else watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution? I'm so proud of what he's doing to promote healthy eating and revolutionize the way food is made and served in schools today, both in the UK and now stateside. He's certainly come a long way from the days spent zipping around London on his scooter, when he was known simply as "The Naked Chef". Jamie has since started a petition to show our government just how dire the situation is and how we need to make a positive change in the way children eat in this country. I've already added my name to the already 200,000+ list of signatures. Will you?

Flower Power

Over the Easter weekend, I decided to treat myself to a little springtime happiness, and I thought I could do no better than to celebrate the season with a bright bouquet of flowers. I couldn't quite make up my mind between the sprightly yellow tulips or the wonderfully fragrant hyacinths or lilacs. So I did what any smart girl would do in a similar situation: I brought all three home with me. Best plan I had all week. These little lovelies have completely taken over my apartment (how sad my place looked without them). Note to self: never underestimate the power of flowers.

Have a hoppy holiday

For those who celebrate, this little guy wishes you a very happy Easter!

Fun fact: my last name means "rabbit" in Portuguese. :-)
