Friday Flower : Mauve-ulous Blue Sky View

It may not be a quintessential October of crisp Fall days and fiery-colored, crunchy leaves underfoot,
but October in SoCal certainly has its own charms!!
...Like gloriously warm and sunny afternoons,
with nothing to spoil a perfect canvas of blue sky, 
except maybe a gently swaying palm tree, a wandering kite, or this mauve-ulous hued bloom!!

Of all the roses I admire (and there are many),
this is the variety that I love the most.
Its subtle mauve color and deliciously citrus scent
 send my spirits soaring any time we meet!!

Words of Wisdom : Always be a Unicorn

“Be yourself. 
Unless you can be a unicorn, 
In that case, you should always be a unicorn."

-Elle Lothlorien, Alice in Wonderland


Mermaid Monday : Lacy Lady Caftan

My love of all-things-lace cannot be overstated...
and wearing it in a supremely elegant caftan cover up, is one of my favorite ways to show it!!

This florally, stretch lace fabric feels like a dream to wear, drapes beautifully, and never met a body shape it didn't want to flatter!!

...If it's summer where you are...or if you're headed somewhere tropical (lucky you!!), it makes a gorgeous beach cover up!!
But if cooler weather is more like what's on your horizon, it works as an elegant layering piece too!!

There's always something new at Mademoiselle Mermaid=)!!
...Speaking of which, is getting a little makeover this month.

So pretty please pardon my dust...
I promise it's going to be fun 'n fabulous when it's done=)!!

Friday Flower Pick : Sunshine Roses

From a soft, colorful a full 'n hot midday sun...
to the sunset's low and golden glow...
the sparkling star of our daytime sky has oh-so many looks and moods.
And I love exploring how she plays with the roses dancing in the garden throughout the day!!

Today's Friday Flower Pick  features a few snapshots of some favorite subjects: roses 'n sunshine!!
