These are just adorable and what a genius idea, a line of miniature stuffed cupcakes so dessert lovers can taste more than one cupcake at a time, guilt free. These come from Baked by Melissa and the best part is if you can't make it to any of the two NYC locations you can have them shipped to you. Now that's sweet!

Horses are just such beautiful creatures, I am in love with this print and would love to own one. A while back my sister told me about this story of photographer Roberto Dutesco and his passion for these wild horses of Sable Island. A feature length documentary will Air June 1st on Bravo!Canada at 8pm(EST). Check it out.

I will be putting in a new kitchen floor, at first I thought I wanted to do a tile but talk on the Pre-k schoolyard was all about cork, the ultimate green flooring material! One mom was talking with another about her cork floor and how she just loved it, so the one mom went over to her house to check it out, loved it and got it. I went over to both their houses to check it out and I really did like it so now I'm getting it. My son asked if I was looking at every ones floors because I wanted to make sure it was safe for play dates?

It was a long winter and I am looking forward to a great summer but the one thing I do love around Christmas time are rainbow cookies, an Italian favorite and my husbands too. This cake just takes the prize, IMAGINE your favorite cookie as a cake! I saw this awesome recipe on Always Order Dessert by Alejandra Ramos, she is one creative cookie/cake.

Here is a picture of my son Jack Fiore at one of his T-Ball games, they played the Yankees. OK, so the picture is not real, but his team did play the "Yankees" (all boys his age) Jack plays on the "Orioles". My sister mocked up this photo. I thought it was hilarious.

I am loving this modern fan, ironically from Modern Fan. This attractive and sophisticated design comes from Ron Rezek, this particular model- the Altus Fan has an organic shape that lends itself virtually to any interior, perhaps my family room?!

Salma was invited to a birthday party yesterday, it was very cute to see her get ready. My daughter is quite the girly girl, she insists on dressing herself and even picks out all her accessories. I took her to Claire's that morning to get some colorful earrings and she was in awe when we walked in, she wanted everything, she insisted on a lip gloss kit- "mommy I NEED this", she couldn't decide between the one with two kittens pictured on it or the puppy in the bathtub, she went with the puppy! I guess when you're three those are your life's decisions.

I recently purchased this For Like Ever poster, had it framed and have it hanging up in my bedroom. I'm a big believer in putting positive messages out there and decorating your home with them. It makes me smile when I see this and I tell my husband all the time that our love is "For Like Ever", makes him smile too!

Three superficial, yet simple things, that is all I would love to have sometime in my life (babe, I would be happy with just one item off this list). Here we go - a Nikon camera, the Cartier Love bracelet and a gold Moroccan pouf from John Derian! This Mother's Day may be too late but perhaps our 10th Wedding anniversary I could hope to expect any of these items, only time will tell!

Last nights affair brought The Fashion! The Annual Costume Institute Gala at The Met in NYC did not disappoint, my favorite of the night was Sienna Miller in Emilio Pucci, she was stunning! Each dress was prettier then the next, from SJP's Halston Heritage to Jessica Alba's Sophie Theallet for Gap, it was a Princess's fairy tale come true. The gala was co-hosted by Ms. Oprah Winfrey herself, she wore a custom silk organza navy gown by Oscar de la Renta who was also her escort for the evening.

One of my new favorite sites is madebygirl! My best friend Shirley just had a baby girl, Lucy, and decorated her nursery with these two prints, they are above her crib side by side and they are just darling! Side note - my girlfriend put her prints in frames she got from Ikea.

One thing all parents can relate to, when your child finds their way into your bed! Needless to say Nicholas and I are exhausted. Salma looks so sweet and peaceful but that is NEVER the case...we will need lots of coffee to start our day right. Happy Sunday! FYI - my sheets are from Dwell Studio, love their stuff.
