Found some wonderful news this morning.

The first: Camera crews recently filmed a documentary highlighting W Mag's September issue under new EIC, Stefano Tochi's direction. Bad news: it won't be released in theaters. Good news: you'll be able to catch it online. Via The Cut
S. Tochi's first issue. Loves!

The second: We will soon be able to shop ZARA online! Yay! Click here to read more.

vintage pie

I bought this turtle pendant at a vintage shop years ago. It's still one of my favorite pieces, I love it, especially as a necklace. I miss vintage shopping...will have to check out some local stores this weekend. I'll keep you all posted on my finds.

Red flush

Love this for fall...

In the hunt for art...

...I snapped a pic of this piece in our hotel room in Vegas at the Wynn. I mentioned I've been looking for a painting to go above my bed. Id love
something like this...don't mind the houndstooth walls either.

The only thing I like more than shades of nude & black respectively is nude AND black together. Behnaz Sarfpour has incorporated both shades in her Fall, Spring & Resort collections. So beautiful, I love it all so much.


My friend C gave me this dog eared bracelet years ago...still my favorite bracelet.

an excerpt i love so much

I am an "eat, pray, love" groupie. Yes, I will admit that I had no interest in reading the book until I saw the previews at the movies. But now I am so happy to be reading and now I understand what the hype is about.

This, an excerpt I loved with all my heart, freakishly reminds me of the person I become when I'm in love. I probably shouldn't admit that in cyber public, but who cares?!

"...If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my dog's time--everything...I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check." -p65, EPL.

northern escape

I looked through an old album today. Don't get me wrong, this summer has been wonderful, but God I miss these parts of the country...

Pure bliss

Janelle captured me and a couple of my closest friends in the middle of a laugh attack this weekend.
Wish I remembered what we were laughing about.

MAC: "Sorry, Mexico!"

Cosmetic Company MAC Forced to Issue Public Apology Over Controversial, Mexico-Inspired Makeup Line


Current project: my room

I started remodeling my room a while ago and it's been a slow, slow process. So far the color's complete and the light fixture is up (my favorite part). I've been looking for a provocative piece of art for the space above my bed...i'd love something made by a local artist. Here are some photos. More to follow...

love emerging designers!

Gilt's been featuring emerging designers recently and i love it! There is something so refreshing about beautiful clothing made by people you've never heard of. Eskell is my current favorite.

Shellac me

I got a shellac* mani today. Its a little slice of heaven between nail polish and gel. I love keeping my nails nice and clean so hopefully this lasts a little longer than my typical 2-day relationship with nail polish. If your salon has it, you should try it! Xo

*I got my shellac at Milan Salon and Day Spa with Judith.

school of fish

I'm a huge fan of braids, especially fish tails. This gorgeous one belongs to my friend Anj. I loved it so much especially because I have never known how to make one...until now!
Of course because you can find pretty much everything on YouTube, I found this great tutorial! And now I know how to make a fish tail braid so I will live happily ever after!

blogging revisited

I haven't channelled my creative energy in a while. A couple of days ago, while on the phone with my friend Jan, I told her there was a void in my heart, a knot in my throat. She mentioned I needed to start blogging again (I USED to blog a lot). I also used to read other blogs, take photographs and prioritize a bit differently but things happened and I just stopped. Poor excuse, I know.

And since we're on topic, welcome to my new blog. I plan to share all the things that inspire me--aesthetic and sentimental. I hope you all enjoy browsing as much as I'll enjoy creating it.

And speaking of inspiration...Jan recently picked up photography.
She took this photo of me on Saturday while hanging out at my brother's house.
