  • Weekend
    on Mar 26, 2012
    This weekend I learned two very important things: the first being the importance of looking in one's rubber boots before putting them on; the second is why I really need to buy a proper ice cream maker.This was the second time (in 7 years, mind you)...
  • Pinspiration Board: Eames Bucket Chair
    on Mar 19, 2012 in eames pinterest covet
    Certain things become apparent (about one's tastes, preferences, not-so-secret obsessions) after spending a fair amount of time on pinterest. I have to be honest and admit that for the first few months after I signed up last spring I didn't really ta...
  • Spring Baking: Lemon Almond Tart
    on Mar 11, 2012 in foodie spring
     Everything about this recipe says SPRING!  Maybe it's the extra hour of daylight (although technically I slept in so it works out to be the same...), or all the juicing I've been doing lately, but I'm in the mood for lighter, fresher recip...
  • Little Paris Kitchen
    on Mar 9, 2012 in foodie paris
    La Petite Cuisine a Paris (Little Paris Kitchen) was, until recently, the smallest restaurant in Paris. I say recently because British chef Rachel Khoo started to cook out of her Paris apartment for patrons in order to test recipes for her cookbook t...
  • Behind the Scenes
    on Feb 28, 2012 in oscars
    Stylist Kate Young posted these pics to her tumblr of helping her pals Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman get Oscar ready. I simply love the necklace that Michelle wore. ...

    Umbrella envy ... is what people who pass by me on the street will be consumed with when they see this beauty:Stripes. Ombré. And a beautiful red wooden handle. I canNOT wait for it to rain!image:twit pic ...
  • Owl Sweater at Burberry Pre-Fall
    on Feb 22, 2012 in burberry sartorial covet
    Burberry really outdid themselves for pre-fall 2012 (whatever that means).I know I'm not alone in coveting this sweater, so (obviously) I can't for the knock-off version. Sigh.images1-4.  Garance Doré5. Kate Bosworth via Upscale Hype...
  • Downton Abbey // The Paper Dolls
    on Feb 21, 2012 in downton abbey
    I've heard that Downton Abbey isn't as big a thing in the UK as it is in North America. I've also heard that this might be because the class system as portrayed in the series hits too close to home to most Britains, in that it still very much exists,...
  • Paint Splattered
    on Feb 19, 2012 in sartorial covet
    I have a tendency to make grand sweeping statements based on very little data, like the time I once said that nothing much happened in the Middle Ages in comparison with the Renaissance for a first-year paper. And now I'm going to say that based on t...
  • Birthday Week
    on Feb 13, 2012 in foodie birthday cake
    It's kind of a big one.I'm turning thirty, which when written out like that makes me kind of queasy, so I'll refrain from doing that again. I'm not at all daunted by it and feel ready to leave behind my 20s, and to welcome in the new decade I'm tryin...
  • Domino Resurrected
    on Feb 8, 2012 in 2012 domino spring
    Oh happy day, a day I've long dreamed of (for real), when Conde Nast would realize that they were too hasty in pulling the plug on the design magazine that was like no other, and that spawned countless online design magazines after it was gone.Domino...
  • Leopard Print Love
    on Feb 7, 2012 in sartorial birthday
    My new dress (an early birthday present). It's far from the neutral zone, being leopard print and all, but it doesn't actually deviate from my usual colour palette of gray and black. That's why I promptly went to MAC and bought a bright pink lip...
  • A Spring in Your Step
    on Feb 4, 2012 in footwear sartorial spring
    I currently have my eye on inspiring ways to incorporate colours other than gray and black into my wardrobe. First up: footwear. images:1. unknown2. seychelles snapdragon heels in emerald...
