currently loving..

December 6, 2011 § 4 Comments

here are a handful things making me happy this week – a mix of products, edibles and other fun finds. perhaps this will be a regular installment… we shall see!

1. cup after steamy paper cup of candy cane lane green tea:

i love love love peppermint, especially during the holidays. this tea isn’t super pepperminty – just enough to be refreshing, and the green tea flavor is mild and pleasant. plus, it’s decaf, so i can drink it in the office all day (literally) while i’m freezing under my coat that i also happen to be using as a blanket. i’m tempted to steep a bag in a cup of low-cal hot cocoa… ohhh dear, i think i’m stopping at walgreens tomorrow morning. it’s going to happen. (it’s all about the little things.)

my favorite gifts under $50

November 17, 2011 § 2 Comments

a few reasons to love this time of year:

-dogs wearing antlers 🙂

-pumpkin frozen yogurt, especially with crushed graham crackers on top..

-trips back home, puppy snuggles and parties

-and… gift guides!

my j.crew catalog came in the mail today and as expected, it’s pure eye candy. i know it’s planned this way but seeing everything styled and photographed just so makes me want it all. (also, i had no idea i needed a gift for my personal assistant, manicurist and aunt gertrude… thanks, j.crew.)

anyway, in the spirit of artfully arranged gift suggestions, here are some of my own! i’m keeping it under $50, just for fun (and practicality).

gifts under $50

1. j.crew striped thermal henley, $42

2. tocca beauty eau de parfum viaggio, $45

3. kate spade new york iphone case, $40

4. marc by marc jacobs brass doe earrings, $48

5. ban.do chiffon shoe clips, $25

6. anthropologie passport case, $28

confetti love

October 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

i really, really love confetti.


(photo by dh kong)

like.. a lot. the above photo was taken at a job i had a few years ago, when we were filming a quick video… a clown was involved. and a bounce house. we were all standing around at the end of the day, surveying the confetti explosion that had happened, and i sort of… jumped into it. with the office dog. for no reason.

shoe shopping on a monday

October 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

i’m going shoe shopping, and you’re coming with me. ready.. set.. let’s go!

first stop: american eagle. i know, i know. these shoes are far too cute for a retailer whose customer base is primarily teenagers and college students! i don’t know about you, but i spent those years in flip flops and skating boots, not runway-inspired ankle booties.

…like this pair, which i’d wear with tights and a silky dress (how fun would it be to replace the laces with colorful ones?)

or these swedish hasbeens-inspired clogs, with skinny jeans and a casual jacket…

..or these cuffed and cozy booties, which would be perfect paired with plaid tops and grey jeans, don’t you think?

can you believe they’re each under $70 (whee!) and seem to be void of incriminating logos? i suppose if you got close enough to a pair you might find one… but that would be weird.

so… should i spring for these cheapy chic booties, or are they best left to the teenage set? i’d love to hear your thoughts!

for fall

October 4, 2011 § 1 Comment

i’m pret-ty sure i could wear this outfit every day until next spring…

fall textures

waffle knit sweater, isabel marant. sherpa-lined parka, marc new york. almanac boots, madewell. thigh high wool socks, hansel from basel. matte lip pencil in ‘dragon girl’, nars. leather skirt, oasis.

what’s on your must-have list for fall? fantasy items, realistic substitutions.. i’d love to hear both!
