the mother load

I made an exciting discovery that I just shared with my coworker.  There's an amazing discount beauty supply store on 37th bet 5th & Park.  Many goodies for ridiculous prices.  Like this Stila eye pallet for $15!

Did this all fall off of a truck?  Maybe I don't want to know.

Feathers Kimono

Ignoring my resolution to buy less clothing, I found this must have.  By definition, I must have it.


These recycled mold chairs keep green chic.

Stuck on You

I'd love to have these wall hooks in my future kitchen!  The knife one's a little violent... maybe for Halloween.

OK, now I'm scared.  I have been wondering why neon nail polish is so hard to find outside of salons (can't even find it on Essie's own site), and I just read that there are safety risks associated with them.  What?!  Like, I might blind myself with the neon-ness and step off the corner into oncoming traffic?  I need more specifics.  Where's the beauty doctor when I need her?

Stormy Weather

It finally rained today to temporarily break the heat.  I enjoy summer storms and it's been a good year for that so far.  I saw some amazing lighting from my previous sublet on the 44th floor and from our balcony in Orlando.  It's fun to watch from the safety of your building...or a teacup in this case.

Cold & Sweet

I'm not a girl with a big sweet tooth, but in the midst of this heat wave, this is very appealing!

Iceland Volcano

No, not that volcano.  These are site specific installations in Reykjavik by Theresa Himmer.  I just hope you're not operating heavy machinery as one blinds you.

Pointed Packaging

Self explanatory packaging by Penny Lorber.  Who needs ad men when you've got package designers?

Little Cheese Pub

A few weeks ago we had an amazing and adorable cheesy dinner at the Little Cheese Pub.  The name alone was very enticing.  I had the French Man Mac with duck meatballs.  Highly recommend!

Dangerously Fashionable

These clogs from Opening Ceremony would seem to pitch you forward to a likely knee scrape at best.  I'd love to give them a whirl.  I live for danger.

Sunny Florida!

I'm going to Orlando for the weekend to join Matt on his business conference.  It's not exactly the getaway I'd plan in July with my aversion to the heat, but since our air conditioner is broken in NYC it might actually be a reprieve!  We're going to Universal Studios on Saturday.  I'm confused though, are there actual movie lots in Florida?  Oh well.  Hopefully the weekend looks something like this:

Savage Beauty

I saw the McQueen exhibit at the Met a few weeks ago and it's one of the best exhibits I've ever seen.  The objects, the design, the music, the lighting... it's not to be missed.  Hair, feathers, flowers and clam shells make up some of the most innovatively designed garments of our time.  Here's a few teaser images.

I suddenly have the urge to own an unnecessarily large alarm clock.

Subway Art

I just came across this image while searching for colorful porcelain tile.  I used to get off at this stop every day while I was working at Lincoln Center.  Now I've got to find new ways to put a little Sol back in my life.

One of my business contacts introduced me to pignoli cookies.  I don't know how I've gone this long without trying them!  I'll have to have Matt try this recipe.

Happy July 4th Weekend!

Hope you have a very patriotic weekend complete with beef and fireworks!
