Put me on the next boat outta here...

I opened my Daily Candy this morning and to my delight I found these adorable Steamline luggage pieces. My favorite is the editor series. The yellow and pink you see above (also available in chocolate).

My two trusty pieces of roll-on brilliance are quickly losing their steam... so maybe this is an option? I like that they are on wheels... but I am wondering how the linen will hold up.

What do you think?


wishing for really warm weather

I found this picture my dad took last summer. Makes me long for warmer days.
Have a great weekend!!!

laptop pillow

This is pretty cool. It allows the heat of the laptop to circulate and from keeping your lap too hot.



Ben got me the most awesome v-day present EVER!! A Diana camera... and just in time for my Japan trip too!
I have been wanting one of these for years and can't wait to take it out and play with it.

Check out its capabilities here.

Thanks b!


Wallpaper Love

About a month and a half ago, when I got this new computer, I randomly looked for an image to be the new desktop wallpaper.  Not sure what I entered into GoogleImages, but somehow found this peach.  It's been my desktop both at work and at home since then - it is the perfect background.  Not too much going on, neutral palette, AWESOME image... And I'm sure it doesn't translate too well on blogger, but the resolution is really high in my version, so it still looks great on my laptop or my cinema display at work.  Love it.  Can't change it.  Let me know if you want the high-res version :)


I'm back! (again)

I know I've been completely M.I.A. now for about a month - sorry to kick-off 2009 on such a poor habit! The good news : I still have a job!

Even though our current lease isn't up for another 9 months (and I love living here!) I'm starting to think that with a new place could come a couple new additions / modifications to me / my style. I would LOVE a new bedroom set, but considering that I'm a perfect example of champagne taste on a beer budget, I might have to D.I.Y.-it to get what I want. Here are my thoughts... thoughts?

I'm also thinking that my living room scheme could use some tweeking... stay tuned for that :)

ps: e - I think we need something new for the blog... a new banner at the top? new color scheme? lets brainstorm :)



I have been to the tiny (and I mean the boutique is the size of my cubicle) Kelly Wearstler shop in Bergdorf's a few times.

In my opinion, and I have gone up there 3-4 times over a span of a year, it has not changed much. The most notable thing I saw this time were the spectacular boxes with the gems and precious rocks on it.
Although I am not impressed with the change of the shop, It still is fantasic, and fun to go in. It just has a groovy vibe about it.
