Annual Mustique Vacation

Yesterday, the Cambridges and Middletons kicked off their annual vacation in Mustique. While this is always a nice break for the Cambridges, it is especially important this year as it is also Carole Middleton's big 6-0 on the 31st.
This has been an annual vacation for Kate's whole life. They made it their annual holiday when the Middletons were working for British Airways and would receive a significant discount when buying tickets. They now stay in the luxurious Villa Rocina. It boasts a 30ft pool, fabulous views, and an open-air living room.

Who wouldn't want to stay there? According to other passengers on the flight from London to St. Lucia,  George was 'impeccably behaved' and was entertained by stuffed animals during the flight. There is a possibility that pictures were taken between their departing from one plane and onto the private plane that flew them to their island . Below, we see the cover of Hello magazine and the cover last year.
We hope they have a wonderful holiday and can't wait to see them next! If any photos are published, I will post! Have a lovely weekend :)

Kate is Lovely in Séraphine

Kate simply glowed in the winter sun today as she toured the various areas of Kensington. She was close to home today, first going to a Family Friends coffee group.

Kate proved once again that Séraphine is her maternity label. Both her coat and dress were the label.
She was presented with a bouquet of flowers by little Ryan Dixon, who proved too shy to give them to her!

As his mom said:
"I don't know what made him so shy, normally he is really outgoing!" 
Kate understood and replied "I would be nervous too!" :)

She then opened the Kensington Aldridge Academy, a performing arts school for Northern Kensington, with pupils ranging from 11 to 18 years old.
She met the staff and pupils, then toured the building and sat in on a lesson. She then stopped at the Kensington Leisure Center.

Kate Wears Hobbs for Foster Visit

Hi! Sorry for the late and brief post, but I have had zero time to spare these last few days!Kate went on this engagement on Friday :) Kate wore her $80 dress from Hobbs for the first time without a coat over it. The results were...interesting. I think Kate would look great in this dress when she is not pregnant, but it just didn't fit right:

She met with a group of foster carers and youth that had recently left foster care.

You get the gist! Sorry for this brief post, but there will be a more extensive one tomorrow on the engagements!

Kate Visits Barlby Primary School

Just as we were pining for Kate, here she comes! Today, out leading lady visited Barlby Primary School in London's Ladbroke Grove to officially open the Clore Art Room.

Today she wore a new label for her, luxury maternity brand Madderson London. She donned the 'Naomi' style. Zara Philips, William's cousin, also wore this brand while pregnant with her daughter, Mia.

While there, she also met Turner-Prize winning artist, Grayson Perry. He and Kate are the Art Room's two patrons. Below, we see Grayson and her being presented with a chair, presumably for Prince George.

The Art Room is an art-therapy program for children. It has helped many a family and has many success stories.
Her bump is showing a bit more now! Below, we see her talking with some students.

There were many children who were thrilled to bits to see her.

Kate Goes Shopping!

Okay, I know that this is not the most compelling title. And, I understand if this is a little desperate. However, Kate looked quite pretty while going shopping at John Lewis and who doesn't want to know what she did?
E! Online
Kate wore a lovely Zara "Straight-cut in dusty pink" coat, with brown tights, an unidentified green-gray scarf, and what appear to be her Russell and Bromley 'Half n' Half' boots.
More from E!:
"'They shopped for at least an hour,' an eyewitness told E! News. 'She was with two security guards but Kate carried her own bags and they did not look light.'"
 We will next be seeing Kate on the 15th opening the Clore Art Room.
To end, I, for one, am going to watch the new series "The Royals". It looks a little junky, but who can resist a show about the English Royal Family (completely fictional, not about the actual Royals)?
Here's the trailer:
See you on the 15th!

Happy 33rd, Kate!

I would like to get going by saying a huge Happy Birthday to our lovely Kate! She turns 33 today and according to People,  Kate is spending the day 'privately' at Amner Hall on the Sandringham Estate. She is believed to be joined by her parents and siblings (William and George too, of course!) In honor of her 33rd, this will be 33 times Kate was kicking butt, being perfect, and just being awesome. Here we go!

1.                                     Because it takes some guts to don this dress!

2.                                Her first speech is watched by millions. And she pulls it off.

3.                                                          She has The. Best. Hair. Ever.
4.                                                    She looks fabulous in everything.

Kuala Lumpur
 6.                                                           Did I mention everything?

7.                               She is cool while under pressure (of a NBA star hugging her)

8.                                                               She has the moves.
Look at William!
  9.                                                     Kate is willing to try this.

10.                   On one of her first official engagements after having George. Yes, this is real ;)

11.                                     She looks awesome when 7 1/2 months pregnant.

12.                                                And even better at eight months.

13.                          She is even a wizard with elegance (and we get to see her quirks!)
14.                                                   Her enthusiasm for everything sports.

15.                                                             And sporting events.

   16.                          She did a 72 hour tour of New York while 5 months pregnant.

17.                                            And, let's face it, she has perfect teeth.

18.                                                             This whole outfit.

19.                                                         Head-throwing-back laughs

20.      Looking elegant at all times...(this was the day Closer published grossly invasive pictures)

21.                                                     Watching her be a mom (Aww!)

22.                                                    A little more awkward dancing....

23.                                        ...Which inevitably leads to the best dressed list.

24.                                                    Who else wears 3D glasses well?

25.               She survived two bouts of hyperemesis gravidarum (acute morning sickness)

26.                                                       Her "I'm Listening" face.

27.                                                  And her "Let's charm them" look :)

28.         While surrounded by William, Beyonce, and Jay-Z, she still is the center of attention.

29.                                                           She and William are perfect together.

30.                                                       Let's face it: Kate has a huge heart.

31.                                                    And gives the best side eye ever.
32.      Even though she has a lot on her back, she always manages to look eager and ready to go.

33.                                  She has made it this far! Many more to you, Kate!

We will be seeing you on the 15th for a stream of engagements prior to the annual Mustique getaway with the Middletons. Until next time!
