I heart Cath Kidston

There is a retailer in the UK called Cath Kidston.  An almost princess-to-be was spotted outside Cath Kidston on Kings Road today in London (BTW: I lived on King's Road when I was going to school there!)...

Seeing the above photo in my daily perusal of The Daily Mail, made me realize that I haven't blogged about how much I love Cath Kidston.  I love each and every item they sell!

I love their romantic English rose prints, but it floral isn't your cup of tea, they have other prints as well.  You can buy just about anything...

There are tons of bags to choose from.  Purses, wallets, tote bags, book bags...
some are regular fabric, some are oil cloth

They have jewelry... necklaces, brooches, earrings, bracelets...


They have home items for every room of the house...
your kids rooms too...
They have cases for blackberries, ipods, DS cases, laptop cases, ipad cases, and iphone cases...

Lord Help Me, I love this next iphone case!
And they sell fabric by the yard meter...
I may have to figure out what I can do with this fabric!

AND

AND

They are as Royal Wedding CRAZY as I am!!!

Tea Towel
Shopping Bag

Key Chain
Mugs
AND MORE!

Just for the record, Cath Kidston doesn't have a clue who I am, and while this may look like a paid advertisement, it's just me sharing a retailer that I love with you guys!  Here is a secret:  You can download a free wallpaper for your computer from their website too!  Scroll down to the bottom of the website and it's located under "product information"~There are several cute ones to choose from!

You can also use them for iphone wallpapers too!  I'll put a step by step process for doing so below, though I doubt you would need it!  After all, I'm not very tech savvy and I figured it out!

(1) Save image as a photo on your computer
(2) E-mail the image to yourself
(3) Open the image on your phone.
(4) Tap on image and select "Save Image"
(5) Go to your "Photos" on your phone and then you can set it as a wallpaper as you would do with a "normal photo"

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
