True, Palm Springs may be a tad too hot this time of year. How about Calistoga? I like hot springs, and mud baths, and wine, and bubbly water.

street style... florence

I adore this girl's look from The Sartorialist. Love the dress and the photo.

These rare photos of Audrey Hepburn are simply gorgeous - taken by Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby.

Love the designs of Benjamin Hubert. May I please have one of these "yumbrella" ceramic fruit bowls?

favourite things

cherry chomper

This pitter looks awesome! I might need one since I've just discovered a cherry tree nearby and I love cherries.

martin + osa jeans

Jeans, jeans, jeans. Not sure why it's so hard to find an awesome pair under $100... so I just had to rave about my pair from Martin + Osa. I got these in the fall and have been wearing them constantly ever since. They are "skinny" but not too tight, and they don't expose your backside when you sit (v. v. important). They tucked into my boots nicely in the colder months and work well with sandals. Jeans!

tieback blouse

If you know me, you'll probably see me wearing this soon. I tried it on earlier this week, but didn't end up buying it. Now it's all I think about. Gotta make a trip to where else, but Anthropologie.

it's here!

After much anticipation, I've made my decision on a new handbag. It's the Coach Parker shoulder bag and it's arrived (thought I'd mention I had it gift wrapped) and I love it. Have to give a shout out to my wonderful boyfriend who made this possible. Thanks baby!

room & a kitty

I love this bedroom makeover, especially the paint design. Oh, and look at that lil' tiger!

Amazed at Simon Schubert's folded paper art. How does he do it?

strawberry mojito

Ok, that's it... I'm leaving work to go make strawberry basil mojitos. Recipe and photo via Design Crush.

shoe find!

Sandal shopping last week led me to these cute comfies from Clarks. Yes, people, Clarks! Isn't that what my grandma wears? But, seriously, these shoes are unbelievably comfortable AND cute (Yes, I'm repeating myself). I'm already considering getting these in another color.

vintage coffee carafe

I just bought this retro coffee carafe from Trampoline. Why? Why not! I do have to say it was the post on Mint that brought me to this special find. Can't wait to get it in the mail!

art redux

Before and after of some thrift shop art by Red Jet Whistle. I think it turned out fantastic!


This is my kind of bedroom. As seen on Desire to Inspire.
