Onward with my Seven on Sunday….. ____________________________________________ 1 ONE GORGEOUS HOME I really like this house done by Mark Sikes, its most definitely sophisticated and beautiful but young and very current. Lots of color and pattern, just feels like a happy and welcoming home. Click here to read more 2 INSPIRING STORY OF THE WEEK This story just has to make you smile. I could watch this all day long…..we need to hear and share more stories like this. Daphne is real world modern day hero in her dedication working with autistic kids and opening their ears and hearts via the piano…..incredible! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST What a beautiful round up this weekend if I say so myself, such beauty out in the world! 4 A DELICIOUS AND SUPER HEALTHY SALAD! I tried this the other night and it was actually incredible good. Tasty enough to make for a luncheon, you can add chicken or protein of some sort to make it more of a meal. The dressing was delicious and I bought prepacked shredded cabbage which made this a cinch. Funny as my husband does not like quinoa but didn’t even realize quinoa was in the salad….kind of snuck it in:) Very good, click here to visit The Kitchen Girl for the recipe. 5 PURPLE HYDRANGEAS FIT FOR A QUEEN So for someone who is not much of a purple fan, I surprised myself by how much I fell in love with these exquisite purple hydrangea topiaries I had never seen these before but bought four on the spot. And paired with the blue and white, its a match made in topiary heaven. 6 FAVORITE MASCARA Keep forgetting to follow up on this mascara which I talked about a few months ago. Fast forward a few months and let me just say this is my all time favorite mascara! It has some kind of filler in the formula so you don’t need much but it most definitely lengthens and thickens your lashes. I normally go to town at night and the other night a friend actually asked if I was wearing fake lashes:) Guess it worked! I bought it directly from their site, click here to visit. 7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY Summer is here……have any major plans?
