The New F1 Season has Arrived!

The 2011 Formula 1 season has begun, the Australian Grand Prix started off the season with an interesting race. Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel opened his title defence with a victory, Vettel tore away from the field in the opening stages, leading by three seconds after just two laps, with McLaren's Hamilton holding second.

Hamilton held on to 2nd position at the start and held it all the way through even with an ‘off’ that damaged the floor of his car later in the race to score the 37th podium of his career in his 72nd race. Hamilton said: “The whole team should be proud of this result. The car felt fantastic and I think we can challenge to win the next race.”

Renault's Vitaly Petrov, who made the most of an excellent start and a fine race drive thereafter to take his maiden podium in third. Looking forward to an exciting and surprising F1 season! Keep it up boys!!!

Feet First

Here are some classic and fresh new looks in footwear. I really like the Oxford for girls trend going on right now. Oxfords look super cute paired with everything from floral dresses to shorts. Marc Jacobs has a line of shoes for youth called Little Marc. I like the little Emo girl character he has created and put on a ballet flat, very different. J.Crew always has a great line of shoes for kids, the stripped grosgrain with a splash of pink is a great choice. And last but not least for your little girl, a classic pair of Converse All Stars in crisp white.
For the boys I like the new line of Tom's for kids line, his shoes are simple, comfy & stylish with a cause, I like the Faces of Youth print. Grey sued Chukkas by Vans are always a good pick to go with anything and for every occasion. J. Crew's Mac Allister Boots are so handsome and sturdy and would be a great addition to your little mans closet. Of course I also have to end with another Converse classic, the Jack Purcell High Tops, also in crisp white! All these picks will have your little one putting their best foot forward!!!!

Day Tripping

Had the opportunity recently to chaperon a field trip to the Mission San Juan Capistrano, in San Juan Capistrano, California. I would have never gone there if not for the field trip and I would have really missed out. No need to be Catholic or religious to appreciate the beauty of this mission, it is absolutely beautiful. The mission has daily guided tours with a Dosen or you can walk freely using information wands. I recommend a visit with your family and bring a picnic basket and lunch on the lawn next to the large Koi pond & fountain. And the swallows have returned recently! You can get more information regarding pricing and events here: http://missionsjc.com/visit/visit.php

Time for a DIY Project

I am loving the blinged out cake toppers but they are so expensive. I created my own with a sheet of card stock and plastic crystals. Here is how I did it:
  • Print out a copy of the inspiration topper in the size needed for cake. (I used a 4x7 sized picture)
  • Cut out the number from the printed picture.
  • Trace the numbers on the back side of card stock & cut them out.
  • Get out your trusty glue gun and a pair of tweezers and glue down the crystals in the desired design. ( I followed the inspiriation pic)
  • Glue two toothpicks to the back of the numbers (if you want double sided numbers then cut out and glue it to the back side after this step)
  • Lastly I added a tulle bow with a heart crystal and hot glued it to the bottom.

This project is a quick, easy & cost efficient way to top a cake or cupcake. It is so easy that my 10 year old did it herself. Try it for your next party with letters or number and themes. The ideas are endless!!!!
