I am here

I'm one lucky girl who gets to spend weekdays in this Gordon Bunschaft designed building.  It's like I'm in a very stylish timewarp.  This picture isn't from my floor, but you can just imagine that it is.

wish you were here

Post cards from vacation sent to make the receiver jealous have nothing on this croissant post card!  Wish I was eating one right now.

matte mani

I'm often looking for a new manicure option.  My nails grow easily, so it's always fun to rock some crazy french tips.

You always hurt the one you love

I just had a movie break my heart a little bit.  I'll be thinking about Blue Valentine for days.  I haven't wanted to immediately rewatch a movie in a long time.

Ryan Gosling was so good, I'm going to have to boycot the Oscars this year (not really).  He made me wish I'd married a childish alcoholic a little bit- and that deserves an award.

Shoe Yorker

Pierre Hardy's opening a boutique in the big apple.  In honor of NYC's deco history, this shoe will only be availible in the flagship soho store.

a day late

I intended on posting this cool Valentine's themed cake yesterday, but I (rather unexpectedly) started a new job instead, so my schedule got a little out of whack.  So here it is a day late, but just as adorable and delicious.

Love around the world

Luckily, you don't have to be spending Valentine's Day in Russia to incorporate a little matryoshka into your day.  Etsy has you covered.  Happy Valentine's weekend!

What's cookin'?

Legos, that's what.  Lego's getting creative with their retail stores (Rock Ctr in particular) and it's catching.  Here's a lego embellished kitchen.

change happens

This versatile chair morphs to fit your black and white moods.

Dear Diary, New York is the greatest!

Now you can journal about how much you love NYC while showing your love outwardly as well!  Just in time for Valentine's Day, how convenient.

packaged goodies

The packaging on these Australian candles makes them irresistable.  Hopefully their smell lives up to their looks.  Senses in harmony.


These sequin shorts are hilarious!  They are far too microscopic to actually wear, but when I saw them in the Free People catalog, they made me smile!  It's also currently 9 degrees out, which just makes them feel sillier.

on the wall

A little fashion print to brighten your day.  It's nice to know you can take home a little McQueen in an illustrated version without breaking the bank.

A Nice Day for a White by Vera Wedding

Here's a post that's totally inappropriate for Superbowl Sunday... weddings!  A friend of mine recently got engaged and just told me that Vera Wang, my very own bridal designer is coming out with a line for David's Bridal called White by Vera Wang.  The collection is STUNNING with price tags to match!  Here's my top two looks:

Is 3 years too soon for a renewal complete with new gown?

I'm in the mood...

to watch a heavy Meryl Streep movie from the '70's.

Top Heavy

I wish I were going to an English wedding- it would give me a reason to justify buying this hat.  Maybe I'll just wear it to work one day and see if anyone notices...

These notecards make me want to write more notes.

Toward the Light

The Mr. Hyde Sofa from Pablo Crespo Pita is a classic sofa trapped in a modern body.  As night hits and you turn it on, it reveals its true inner beauty.

February's Here

The month of love is upon us.  As I mentioned earlier, I'm uncharacteristically OK with the passing of Christmas to make room for Valentine's Day.  I think I'll have a cupcake party to celebrate.
