Red Carpet Moments

Lately, when watching the red carpet, I rarely come across an actress who has knocked it out of the park head to toe- something always seems to be a bit off leaving me to wonder... who is styling these people and telling them they look OK when they don't?!

Here are my top favorites (minus a hairdo or two)...

Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen, January Jones in Carolina Herrera, Claire Danes in Louis Vuitton, Tina Fey in Oscar De La Renta

Metallic Mondays

The Cove

Keeping up with the Ocean theme...

I received an email this morning featuring these James Perse long sleeved, 100% cotton, The Cove shirts. Profits from the shirts are going to various organizations working to save the dolphins. They have already sold out online, but you still have a chance to scoop one up at a James Perse store- hurry!!

Surf & Turf

Here are a few seaworthy home decor pieces that are fully functional, as well as visually appealing...

Shell measuring cups- Anthropologie, Celia Landman Urchin Bowl and Utensils, Urchin Salt & Pepper Shakers- L'Object, Shell Salad Utensils- Lotus Arts De Vivre

Sailor's Delight

I finally made it over to the J.Crew Bridal Boutique on Madison Avenue in New York this past weekend. It was pretty much everything I expected- clean lines, well organized, cool details, and lots of sparkle. I snapped this shot of their crystal ship chandelier, and I now feel like I really need one...


For a long time I was a nail biter. I learned to stop by treating myself to manicures- when your nails are beautifully polished, it does make you think twice before chomping away! Since I do polish my nails quite frequently, I really do appreciate natural polishes. Here are a few of my favorites brands and colors...

Spring Preview

Spring/ Summer 2011 collections have slowly started popping up online. I randomly stopped over at the Jodi Arnold website to see what she has been working on- I used to be a design intern back when it was called Mint. I have always loved her use of prints, and decorative detailing. Here are a few of my favorites from the new collection...

This Life

Before I head out for the weekend, I want to send you all off dancing...

Two Door Cinema Club's "This is the Life" is a fun, happy-go-lucky tune that just makes you want to dance and smile...

Weekend Update

This should be a great weekend... my friend Sarah is coming to visit, and the Towanda crew is taking her shopping for a wedding dress! Good times, good friends!

The Balm

Winter is well underway... and if I couldn't tell by the freezing temps, frequent snowfalls, or leafless trees, then I can certainly tell by how dry my hands are.

I love these shea butter tins from L'Occitane because they are tiny enough that you can just throw one in your bag, but also because they are an all-in-one miracle product- targeting hands, lips, elbows, even hair!

I am a conditioner freak! If my naturally frizzy hair does not have any conditioner, it can get pretty scary! So as you can imagine, I manage to keep several kinds on hand. These conditioning balms from Lollia are beautifully packaged.

Potion Power

This past week has been pretty crazy... I had a tooth pulled (extremely painful), which in turn led to me not being able to sleep very well, which in turn led to a nasty head cold {sigh}.

Needless to say, I'm over it all! So when I came across 21 Drops, it got me thinking... a bunch of their 21 fragrances sound like they could come in handy right about now. Think if I put them all on at once I will get the PAIN RELIEF I need so I can be INSPIRED to feel CALM enough to SLEEP which will give me the STRENGTH I need to continue my PASSION? Probably not, but definitely worth a try! Thoughts?
