Here is a brief synopsis of the film (taken from Wikipedia as I was a too tired to type out my own):
Set at the end of the eighteenth century, The Duchess is based on the life of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. While her beauty and charisma made her name, her extravagant tastes and appetite for gambling and love made her infamous. Married young to the older, distant Duke of Devonshire, intimate of ministers and princes, Georgiana became a fashion icon, a doting mother, a shrewd political operator and darling of the common people, but at the core of the story is a desperate search for love. The film also delves into Georgiana’s passionate and doomed affair with Earl Grey to the complex ménage à trois with her husband and her best friend, Lady Bess Foster.
Doesn't it sound fascinating?? Oh, and to make it even more appealing it was filmed in Bath and at Chatsworth. If you fell in love with Pride and Prejudice you need to get yourself to see this film. Love, scandal, beauty, fashion, elegance, and England...what could make for a better Saturday afternoon?!

Decked out in Lilly for our Glory Days party in 2004.At the end of sophomore year (2005) I hosted a cupcake party at my college apartment for my pledge class. I took the bus all the way to Edina to pick u the cupcakes at Woulett's. I did not drive until December of 2006 so I became very well acquainted with the Minneapolis bus system. Thank goodness apartment roomie (who I was randomly paired with since I transferred in July because the school lost my application) was not cooking venison with Velveeta in her crock pot on this evening!In the Kappa dormie before our Ocean's 12 event with SAE (2005)!
My pledge class (yes it was small, but the Greek system is small in MN and we were the biggest chapter on campus during my years there) on Bid Day of 2005!Bid Day 2005 again. These were my favorite Bid Day shirts; you cannot go wrong with a polo!Before Open House in Fall of 2006- my second and last recruitment! I was decked out as a true prep should be: Lilly, JRs, pearls and a tortoise shell barrette.Paris Kappas (I look horrible, but at least I have one of my Jackie copied, dresses on) before Pref night of 2006.My last Bid Day (2007) I really loathed these shirts, but was a good Kappa and wore it anyway. Paige and I are in the back on the right.The Lilly fashion show! Since I worked at Melly I recruited L, P and S to help out. My hair used to be so long!!

The pink and green bag is on sale for $30 and and the license plate costs the same. Both items are available in a variety of colors (click on the link to see), check them out and find your preference!
I have always wanted a pretty contact case and this is the answer! Isn't it pretty??
He, She and Travel too!
I am also obsessed with this travel clock. A good clock is an essential item when you are jet setting and why not purchase one that includes your initials and sparkles?! For a mere $27 you cannot beat this punctual item!
Acrylic items are great for all your outdoor events! From glasses to pitchers to trays to place mats, Morgan & Company has what you are looking for!
This silver plated, engraved, bottle opener would make a wonderful (and personalized) hostess gift at just $11! I think it would even make a great party favor!
I think these buckets are perfect for Trick or Treating! You could personalize them for you little one or with your family's name. However, at $20 a bucket you might as well just do both! Check out the website for other bucket sizes and patterns.
My mother and I used to love looking at all the silver children's items when in NYC. One of our favorite was the yo-yo we once saw. Well, if you are looking for a fun, but unique gift for the little love in your life you simply must add this ($19) to your list!
Every baby needs to be fed in style! This silver baby spoon and silver, plated baby cup ($29.90 and $17' smocked dress and Silvercross pram are additional) are wonderful gifts and will certainly welcome baby home.
Morgan & Company also has a great selection of jewelry. Some of my favorite things are their monogrammed silver round pendant ($35.65, I have loads of grosgrain ribbons I wear it on), the monogrammed silver oval ring ($33.35, I wore mine almost everyday in college), the monogrammed oval barrel pendent ($41.40) and the monogrammed silver round earrings ($33.35).
Head on over to Morgan & Company and load on up! The site has special Bridal, Baby, Home and Jewelry sections to make life easier. They offer free shipping on all orders over $75 and with the holidays soon approaching you can easily load up. Take a look and let me know what you fancy, I have a feeling you might find far too much!

Saturday I had a busy morning of running errands. Amidst getting gas (for a mere $3.00 a gallon thanks to saving up all my grocery discounts!) and running to store to buy pumpkins I stopped into Michael's. I went in to look at frames, but they had nothing that worked so on my out I stopped by the $1 section. I had the best luck finding ultra cute and somewhat preppy holiday items. I got pink and green recipe cards, two advent calendar greeting cards, a darling phone message pad, a pink and green calendar note pad and pink and green name tags. The best part was nothing cost more than a dollar.
Aren't the items cute? I bet you are already hoping to be my Christmas swap partner!
Saturday afternoon L and I stopped by her apartment BBQ then M and I spent the evening watching part of Legally Blonde 2, Another Cinderella Story and Win a Date With tad Hamilton.
This morning I attended church and was treated to a wonderful sermon. I will be share to more with you all later this week because it was very enlightening! I had decided to stop in Nordstroms afterward as I adore the Mighty Leaf Tropical Green Tea they have. I am sure they carry it somewhere else in Dallas, I just have not figured out where that place might be! When I walked in I noticed it was triple points weekend. I had been eyeing a Burberry quilted coat in peat so I immediately called mother to see if she thought I should just go ahead and buy it. Of course we decided a new coat is always good to add to your closet and I have not bought one since January of 2007 so I indulged. I LOVE the peat color of my jacket and had never noticed it until I was at Nordstroms last weekend. My photo does not do the color justice, but it is a grayish, greenish, brown that can be worn with black and brown. Click here to get a better idea of the color.I spent this afternoon organizing and cleaning and now need to find time to catch up on all my emails! I did squeeze in dinner with L and C at Coalvines as well as some long overdue phone calls. Look forward to a fun post tomorrow morning, I am off for the evening!
