I never really fancied myself a headband girl, but my hasty decision to cut blunt bangs awhile back has left me with a chunk of unruly hair that needs taming. Enter the headband. A wonderful way to keep the wispys at bay and achieve that stylish school girl” look at the same time. No longer reserved for the prep set, weve come a long way from the puffy ribbon styles of yore. I prefer the ones with beaded and floral embellishments, they have a sublte tiara effect that appeals to my bohemian side. (pssst.. it is also a quick way to neaten up seriously ratty, dirty hair. A situation I find myself in all too often.)

Bees

August 4, 2009

Sometimes I spot a thing that I didn’t even know I was into but it just keeps following me around until I submit to liking it.

But enough about my love life. Zing!

For serious: I’m liking bees as a design icon recently and have been seeing bee and hive inspiration popping up everywhere. They are responsible for about 35% of the food we eat, and fuhgettabout their huge effect on the plant life…

So why not pay an homage to them? And here’s some real info about them

I never considered myself a Lilly Pulitzer girl.. but (gulp) I kinda love this bee-print bikini. Just in time for the last of the season swim in icy waters of the Atlantic. Really what I do is not swimming per se, its really called “swimping.” (Consider that term coined. You heard it here first) Despite a plethora of beach trips I have only submerged my body once this summer. I just do the good ol’ “spash and pat” made famous by old ladies and prissy moms alike. Sometimes I even do a hair dip. It gets the job done for us swimpers out there.
