I haven's actually tasted this stuff, but seriously, this is pretty toothpaste. I also really like the new design Rembrandt has.... very simple and chic and easier to find


Saskia Havekes designed this ethereal table setting... it is so elegant without being too formal, and I think it would make any food taste better!


Ok, how awesome is this? I LOVE LOVE LOVE when boring stuff that you have to have because you NEED it is actually pretty! This fancy frying pan can be found via

I found this gorgeous lamp at neiman marcus that would be perfect for a certain room... yet sadly it would account for 75% of our design budget...

new tord boontje!

im sure my best friend (thats you my one and only blog reader!) will HATE this as it is pure pattern... but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tord Boontje, and this is gorgeous!

Francesca Woodman

She is my favorite photographer. Her art is made even more provocative by her short life punctuated by suicide and this intense emotionality comes through in her photographs. Something about them touches me deeply — they are feminine and beautiful, and raw and tragic.


This is the most gor-ge-ous magazine... It's is a Brit fashion forward and altogether marvelous publication... the photography is dreamy and perfect. I saw it today at Borders, but didn't quite fit it into the budget (import mags are pricy!), but I did get to flip through it and even managed not to drool all over!

Treasure Trove

I loooove Audrey Hepburn, her style, grace, charm and legacy. This book is a beautiful credit to a beautiful woman. It's stuffed with replicas of memorabillia from her life...notes snapshots etc...
It is altogether lovely.

Marie Antoinette Invitation

oh la la

I love love love swirly glyphs and ornamentals... Domino did this as an hommage to Marie Antoinette (a BEAUTIFUL film... it's just amazing, I dream of it)... I did my own nod to the film in the invitations I made to a friends birthday party back in October and then revamped for place cards for another friend's wedding. Ill post them later when I convert the file.

Mr. Banks

I found this painting on etsy... I LOVE it... the style is such a cool update of the fadeaway girls of early magazine covers... plus it reminds me of my boyfriend who spends every waking hour to valiantly battle the various challenges of the world of finance in NYC, and looks darn good in a suit.

My alltime favorite dress

This gown (for it is a gown) is from Oscar de la Renta's Spring 07 collection and fills me with lust... If I were planning a wedding this would be it... I would have it altered to have an open back (I dont know what the real one looks like) but... I mean, seriously, to me, this is perfection.


I hope this is my first posting, and by that I mean I hope that it is followed by more somewhat regular postings... I may or may not have a bad track record of blog abandonment. Anyway, I hope to use this as a place to keep track of all the beautiful things there are in this world, especially the ones I can't afford as a recent college grad/graphic designer/interior designer/artist... that's basically everything... and things I find inspiring or that just make me happy to look at them.

Also, as a disclaimer, anything posted should be taken as the sincerest form of flattery (21st century style) but if not, let me know.
