Wool blanket

October 27, 2009

picnic for two

One glimpse at this pic from This is Glamorous and I was sent into a shopping frenzy. Perhaps it’s the adorable picnic styling but, I know this: I must have that blanket. It is exactly the kind of cozy woolen thing that I want to curl up with this winter. I have spent the better part of the evening searching for something similar on Ebay, Etsy, Toast, even LL Bean to no avail.. thoughts anyone?



Wicker baskets

June 11, 2009

Stella resort collection

I recently treated myself to a little bike upgrade and the best part about it is my wicker bike basket. It is so cute and spring-y, I feel compelled to fill it up with lemons or something and ride through the park whistling.

However, today I had an afternoon that was quite unlike this lovely pic from the Stella McCartney resort collection. It was a very dreary, mist-ridden bike date with my beau (yes, I called him my beau, the basket brings out my grandma side. I’m telling ya). But I don’t care much that the weather didnt cooperate because there was truffle french fries waiting at the end of the journey. Yes!

wicker baskets: so hot right now….

Domino magazine

January 28, 2009

vintage penguin books

Word on the street is that Domino magazine is closing which is very sad and terrible so I thought I’d post a picture from an issue as an homage. I don’t really understand why they are closing exactly because it happens to be one of my all time favorite magazines and they have such a following. It could be that awesome blogs like this one are the magazines of the future! For free!
But wait, I don’t have the same bottomless photography and travel budget…
