Style Spotlight: The Duchess of Cambridge

Happy Saturday!

Can you believe it's been a year since the Royal Wedding?!
I still remember the excitement of last year like it was just yesterday! ;)

In honor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first wedding anniversary, I thought it'd be nice to start my Style Spotlight posts with the most photographed woman on the planet: The Duchess of Cambridge.

So, let's take a look back at Her Royal Highness' fashionable year!
(Not all of the Duchess' outfits since getting married are included, to do so would make this post longer than it already is, haha!)

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge leaves Sandringham Church after the traditional Christmas Day service at Sandringham on December 25, 2011 in King's Lynn, England.  The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh traditionally lead the royals in attending a church service at Sandringham Church on Christmas Day. It is the Duchess of Cambridge's first Christmas at Sandringham after her marriage to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge in April of this year. This year the Duke of Edinburgh missed the service as he is in Papworth Hospital after having cardiac surgery to fit a stent in his coronary artery.

Look at the woman in the background in the last photo... doesn't her outfit look similar to the one the Duchess wore to the Gary Barlow concert at the Royal Albert Hall? Haha, cool! ;)

Ever since her engagement, I think the Duchess of Cambridge always looks so beautiful and so impeccably dressed.
It seems like she never has a bad hair day, or a bad photo for that matter... but then again, being a princess does mean having to be close to perfect at all times -- she even looks great playing field hockey!

It would be amazing to raid the Duchess' closet, don't you think?

To name my favorite looks from the Duchess of Cambridge would take forever, so I think you guys should just tell me your favorites and we'll talk about it in the comments! Good plan, right?! ;)

Do you have a favorite Duchess Catherine look/outfit?
Anyone watching Royal Wedding replays/specials?

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Wedding Wednesday: Groom's Cakes

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Just a quick Wedding Wednesday post for today since I haven't made one in weeks. ;)

Let Him Eat Cake: From iPhones to Angry Birds -- even "The Dude" -- there's no groom's theme too wacky for today's best bakers.

"Whether served at the reception or boxed up for favors, this sweet, Southern tradition is taking hold at weddings across the land."

Here are some really cool groom's cakes from

It's amazing how vast people's imagination can be and how immensely talented these bakers are. :)
I had fun looking at all these groom's cakes, I hope you did too!

Which of these groom's cakes is/are your favorite/s?

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Replenishing Sheen Spray

Happy Monday!

How weird is the weather?!
It has been hot like crazy these past few days and now it's gloomy and cold again.
*Sigh* I probably shouldn't have kept my coats and sweaters just yet... now all I have left is my fleece bathrobe, haha! ;)

Anyways, I was looking through my drafts and I found this one waiting to be given some attention.
I've been meaning to post this one ever since I reviewed my Creme of Nature Argan Oil Gloss & Shine Polisher... so, here goes:

Creme of Nature Argan Oil Replenishing Sheen Spray

This oil replenishing sheen spray contains advanced moisturizing properties giving a light-weight, soft finish.

-Healthy long-lasting sheen
-Protects hair from styling friction damage
-Environmentally safe formula
-Infused with certified organic argan oil from Morocco

Hold can 10-12 inches away from hair and spray lightly to add a healthy sheen.

$5.99 at Walgreens

This replenishing sheen spray gives my hair shine without weighing it down.
I think this is a good product and it works well, but I'm not all too crazy about it.
It's not really a part of my daily routine although I should probably use it more often than I do.

Have you tried Creme of Nature's Argan Oil Replenishing Sheen Spray?
Did you like it? Thoughts?

I hope you are all having a great start to the week! :)
