Isn't this guy the cutest? Too bad daschunds are so freakin yappy. This stuffed version is the perfect remedy.

I'm gonna need this

No Reservations 100th episode is Paris. There's so many places I'm dying to jet off to, but watching this show just shot it to the top of my list. The more likely scenerio is that I'll go to Canada for my francais fix. Damn student budget.

more of a good thing

cause I need another reason to justify the practicality of fingerless gloves.

the extras

I'm thinking of taking on another part time job to have a little extra money to do the fun things we don't get to do, like travel. We're thinking of visiting our neighbor to the north this fall. I love to explore.

Fall footed

This past weekend I went apple picking and to a winery's harvest festival. One of my friends was wearing her minnetonkas, and it struck me that moccasins are quite possibly the ideal Fall casual footwear. Boots are a highlight of the changing season, but moccasins bring me back to Falls past.

map it: obsession

What an amazing concept and execution! Eric Fischer has mapped photos of cities taken by locals (in blue) and tourists (in red) and mapped them. Yellow are photos that can't be determined. I love it.

Could you pick them all out?

1. New York, my beloved. Probably the easiest to pick out.

2. San Fran. Visited for the first time last summer.

3. Toronto. Now that I live closer to Canada than I ever have before, I've got Toronto on my list.

4. London. It's been 15 years since I visited! Damn, I'm old.

P. Pink Pig

I had a flashback to my kindergarten play when I saw the pig purse. The scottie and elephant have a place in my heart for their cuteness, even though they're not as nostalgic.

I've got full on Mad Men fever. This fridge is just egging me on.

a chill in the air

It's been dipping into Fallish temperatures lately, and it reminds me that I can actually appreciate the changing seasons now that I'm not consumed with school work. I think I will venture into a baking project. These spatulas are motivating me.

Cup of Jo is having the all time best giveaway: an Allen Company Vintage gift certificate. Now that I've come across their shop, their pieces will haunt my dreams. I would definitely have a hard time choosing between this cape and necklace.

read to me

This yellow lamp is just the lighting solution for the reading area in the living room. That's right, the living room has areas. I've clearly left the land of shoebox apartments.

oh, boy

I love the new Johnny Weir commercial for bluefly. I miss my gays.

not so urban, but outfitted

I might not be urban anymore (although Ithaca technically is a city) but I do still like to be outfitted. When I was back in the big city this weekend my friend helped me justify a few post b-day purchases including a fierce pair of over the knee boots that I cannot wear in the show. Perfect for upstate NY. So naturally I'm also drawn to this dress and top from Urban.

I like your style

I enjoy reading personal style blogs. Now that I'm not in art school anymore, I don't get to witness that daily fashion show. So, I appreciate the ladies who give me my fix online. This look from New Year's Day is making me look forward to cooler weather. Layers!Bulleted List

wiser me

Yesterday was my birthday, and I celebrated with 2 days of fun, friends and food! Notably, I got some delightful vintage things from Petrune, my new favorite store of all time. They have a Mad Med theme in the window now, complete with Scotch. Looking forward to celebrating more over the long weekend.
