Not your Grandmother's Lighting

I love anything that you can customize on a daily basis.  Doesn't it look like that girl's having a blast playing with her giant lite brite?

I'm dreaming of some white peep toes...

It's Spring!  Probably gonna snow in NYC tomorrow, but that's okay, cause I've got Spring footwear to drool over courtesy of Calvin and Sam.


Christian Lacraox's new line of Arles Fabrics is rated for cigarette burns.  How en Francais.

Pull up a Tree

For those times when you just don't want to come inside, you can compromise by taking the outside in with you via this bench.

Advantage Ithaca

OK, not really.  But there is one thing that's convenient about Ithaca- no competition for shopping.  Not that there's much to shop for, but I had my eye on this Sonia Kashuk Spring compact and was actually able to find it in person at the Target in Ithaca.  When I lived in Brooklyn all the cute things would get snapped up in a second.  So thanks Ithaca, now I'll have an easier time applying my makeup on the train with this nifty rattan little compact.

We took a last minute trip down to Playa del Carmen to relax and get some sun.  I loved going in all the handicraft stores and look at all the brightly colored goodies.  I have to learn more about Mexican Halloween and the burning heart imagery.  I bought a heart inside a box painted like the sky, a beautiful ceramic plate and a mini nativity scene.  I took some photos of things I loved but had to leave behind, like these crosses:

Gilt-y Pleasure

I love to look at all the vacation deals on Jetsetter and pretend I'm shopping for a fabulous vacation.  Next week Matt & I are going on a little trip to Mexico as a last minute celebration before I start a new job, but that didn't stop me from fantasizing about a vacation at this hotel in Sweeden.

I've been indulging in Sia's new album We Are Born and she's been brightening my days.  I found this great photo of her from a few years ago.  With a different haircut and when she's not smiling and telling a story about her old boyfriend Muskrat she's almost unrecognizable!

Turning the Corner

Now that Matt and I have a non-student lifestyle in sight, it's nice to think of all the things we can do now.  Like lunch in Milan here!

I'm headin' upstate to see my honey for the weekend!  Good times will be had.  Here's a photo of past good times, where he put his talents in the kitchen to use to make rugelach.
