Weekly catch-up...

Monday Muse:
Have you seen the National Geographic floating house like the movie UP. It brings me so much joy!

Tuesday Travel:
Don't you just love the Design*Sponge city guides? I know I do and if you live in the Phoenix area have you done everything on their list?

Wednesday Wish:
Wouldn't it be fun to not work while planning a wedding and have that be your job?!?
Thursday Tidbit:
Um can someone make me this brownie popsicle? Please?

Friday Fashion:
Such a sassy coin purse by Diana Eng! And made from recycled leather. You can go onto the website look up your purse number and see what the leather was from. How cool!

Weekly catch-up...

Daily, I think not, weekly...maybe so.

Monday Muse:
A food blog, The Tomato Tart, has organized a virtual bakesale with the proceeds going to support Sec­ond Har­vest Japan, that nation’s first food bank. How amazing is this blogger?!?! Something that started as her own project to help those in the earthquake and now it has blossomed into something with more than 90 people participating all over the world! The kindness of strangers can be truly inspiring. Purchase your goods on March 30th!
Tuesday Travel:
Let's go to the Pantone Hotel in Brussels. Wouldn't it be fun to request a specific color room. Today I would ask for PMS 397C.
Wednesday Wish:
I wish Phoenix always smelled like orange blossoms. That and the 75-degree weather we had all weekend makes it worthwhile to live in this desert.
Thursday Tidbit:
I heart these garlands and they will instantly brighten your day.
Friday Fashion:
Debating on getting this swimsuit. Such a cute vintage cut

Some weekly catch-up...

So obviously I have fallen off the wagon with blogging everyday. Trips, weddings, and work have sadly taken up some time but in an effort to catch up here are some sites to keep you distracted...

Monday Muse:
My heart goes out to those in Japan and I love how the design community has responded.
Tuesday Travel:
I saw this suitcase by Orla Kiely yesterday and fell in love.
Wednesday Wish:
I wish that I had more time, more time to spend with my fiance, craft, cook, blog, exercise, the list goes on and on.

Thursday Tidbit:
Pantone has definitely taken their brand to a whole new level with Pantone Universe and I am kind of obsessing about a bike but they have EVERYTHING.
Friday Fashion:
Hearting these Brian Atwood Maniac Metallic Leather Pumps.

Thursday Tidbit: Hula Hooping

Have you ever met a hooper? Until a new coworker introduced us to the world of hula hooping I really did not know such a following existed. Curious as to what you can do with a hula hoop....check out our newest friend hooping along her journey to Arizona.

Wednesday Wish: Sunshine

Phoenix is expecting rain (unusual) and I would really like it if it was sunny on Saturday so I can attend the opening of baseball spring training. Pretty please. With a cherry on top.

Tuesday Travel: London

Last week I was privileged enough to travel to London for work. I have been there a few times before so have done all the tourist sites. It was a whirlwind trip but I was able to fit in a few new things off the beaten path. Here are some of my favorites:
  • Going to Greenwich and seeing the Prime Meridian of the World. It was this crazy green laser beam going across the sky which signals the official starting point for each new day and year.
  • The Legally Blonde broadway show at the Savoy. Yes, I admit to seeing this. And I have to say after seeing most Broadway shows out there in NYC, Legally Blonde exceeded my expectations and was so much fun. I highly recommend. And the theater was amazing. I even dragged along a friend who was not so interested and after the show she couldn't stop singing, she loved it!
  • Design Museum London which has this amazing exhibit about 20th and 21st fashion illustration. One of my favorite exhibits I have ever seen. They also had on display all the the British Design Awards from last year....everything from clothing, chairs, architecture, bicycles, etc. Pretty darn cool. And the walk to get there had some up-close views of the London Bridge.
  • Borough Market...a food lover heaven. Fresh produce, meats, cheeses, breads, oils, and the most delicious chocolate mousse on the planet! So many obscure things and smells to experience.
  • Dinner at Wahaca. Of course being from Phoenix, I chose to test out Mexican food in the UK, a risk I know but this place was outstanding! Delicious margaritas, pork pibil to die for and upbeat interiors that kept you looking around.

Thursday Tidbit: Grilled Cheese

I think grilled cheese sandwiches are a food sent down from heaven. Seriously, one of my favorite foods. So when I saw this cookbook, Grilled Cheese, Please! I think I started drooling and have decided I need soon as possible. You probably don't really need a cookbook concerning grilled cheeses but I love them that much. As seen via ReadyMade.

Wednesday Wish: Louboutins

Oh someday I WILL have a pair of my beloved Christian Louboutins.

Monday Muse: Just Start

Our friends at seesaw spotted this lovely artwork by Elise Joy. I think it makes for the perfect motivation on a Monday.

Friday Fashion: SAG Awards

Not quite as good as the Golden Globes but still some pretty stunning dresses. Can't wait to see the Oscar dresses in a few weeks.

Thursday, February 3, 2011

Thursday Tidbit: Icons

Check out this project by designer Kyle Tezak. He took it upon himself to tell the story of some of his favorite movies and books through designing four icons. I think his work his great and very successful. You could very much guess the book or movie without seeing the text. If you had four icons for your life story what would they be?

Seen via ReadyMade.

Tuesday Travel: Snow Bunny

Doesn't all this snow make you want to go be a snow bunny? Or I guess actually ski or snowboard somewhere fabulous? I know I do. P.S. I heart the vintage travel posters.

Fashion Friday: Perfect Dressipe Baby

Here is little Katie modeling one of our cute Perfect Dressipe onesies. Too adorable!

Thursday Tidbit: St. Francis

Thursdays seem to more often than not concern food, so it is not surprise that this week I am highlighting St. Francis in Phoenix. And my favorite thing on their winter menu is by far the pumpkin soup. Literally, heaven on Earth, life-changing, I-dream-about-it delicious soup. And tonight they just so happened to have it! What a relief, my day was instantly better the first spoonful of silky soup paired with pomegranate seeds and croutons. Need I say more?

Friday Fashion: The Globes

'Tis the season for award shows which means fabulous fashion. I though Olivia Wilde, January Jones and Anne Hathaway looked stunning! Who were your favorites from the Golden Globes?

Wednesday Wish: Handmade Weddings

I wish that I would win one of the blog contests I entered for this darling book: Handmade Weddings.

Friday Fashion: Milk and Honey Shoes

What lady doesn't love shoes? And what about the ability to design your own shoes?!?!? Well, we are all in luck because Milk and Honey Shoes does just that. You can design your shoes from style, to height, colors, materials, embellishments, even the width! Yes, please! Sounds like a dream come true. Has anyone tried them and are they comfortable?

Wednesday Wish: Snow Day

Will Phoenix ever have a snow day? Maybe some day.

Tuesday Travel: Las Vegas

I recently went to Las Vegas for business and was fortunate enough to stay in the new Cosmopolitan Hotel. Fabulous! Totally luxurious but done in such a way that doesn't feel pretentious. And I had an amazing view overlooking the Bellagio fountains. Delicious food, fun bars, great artwork, friendly staff...I highly recommend it.

Monday Muse

Very inspired by how designer Jason Taylor turned such a mundane object into something beautiful. As seen on Design*Sponge but I had to share.

Friday, January 7, 2011

Friday Fashion

I just received the latest Anthropologie catalog (one of my favorite things to receive in the mail) and there are some very pretty things! My two favorite, I-must-have items are this fabulous pair of Braided Basket Pumps and Elegant Angles Bag. Birthday next month? I think so.

Already a day behind...

Thursday Tidbit: La Condesa.

Do you live in Phoenix? Or are visiting soon? If so you must go to La Condesa. A gourmet taco shop on 16th Street and Palm that opened a little over a year ago. They feature a homemade salsa bar of at least ten, mouth-watering tacos, fried (yes! fried) quesadillas, and burritos. Life-changing I tell you. Seriously go now.

Wednesday Wish: A Patio

I would love to have a great patio. A patio that one wants to sit on every spare moment. A place you want to go read, sit and relax, socialize with friends when they are over, etc. A wonderfully cheerful place that you can just be. Do you have one? If not, don't you want to be sitting on one right now!

Tuesday Travel: Passports

Wouldn't it be glorious to be a world traveler? For that to be your job...a dream come true. Well for those of us who only go occasionally we can spruce up the adventure with a passport cover. Check out these beauties!
