I'm probably gonna need these.


Ever watch something on TV and feel ashamed, embarassed and startled all at once?

That's what this infomercial did to me.

Watch the video. Let me know what you think around the 15 second mark - and thereafter.

That ain't right yo - that ain't right.

Will You Be... bridesmaid? There is NO cuter way to ask then with these cards. Spotted via OnceWed.

And no, I'm not getting married anytime soon. But my best pal is so I can be obsessed for awhile.


I'm feeling in the mood for aquas. You?



cutest in an abnormally cute way.

Plane Janes.

I love how airports used to be so fancy and flight attendants used to look so polished. Alas, now I always find myself seated next to someone in velour. Oh well. The Times found this gallery of Delta flight attendant uniforms that I just adore.

Why can't it still be 1958?

I'm Still Jenny From The Block.

This is a dude's shirt, but I still need it. I gotsta represent! BX LOVE!


Striking Images.

If you haven't picked up the April issue of Architectural Digest, you're missing out on editor's picks of their favorite images from the magazine. Each and every one amazing.

In the words of Liz Lemon, "I want to go to there!"


My absolute favorite people are visiting from NYC this weekend. It has been warm and lovely in Maine but this weekend? It might just snow. It doesn't matter though. I have been counting down their visit since I got here!

Photo of the Brooklyn Bridge - where they got engaged this past fall! (I'm the Maid of Honor - no big deal)

Bacon Cake

My lobsterman has an addiction to bacon. It seriously is a problem. A) It's not the healthiest food and B) it's not the healthiest food, so I do hope to nip this problem in the bud one day. Until then, I shall prove my love by making this cake.

Recipe here.

Good Lord.

Well, yesterday was the first day of Spring. And it was raining. And today it's snowing. Good grief. It's a wonder I even know what month it is with all this crazy weather.

And on a totally unrelated note, how fricken fabulous are these vintage French posters that Christina emailed to me? SO CHEAP! I want a wall of them.

But how to choose?

It's raining a gale outside and I walk to work. Bad weather tends to dampen my mood in the morning (literally and figuratively) but last night I dug out an umbrella from my closet to prepare. This umbrella is my new best friend. The GustBuster!

It's not the prettiest parasol on the planet but it didn't flip inside out or make me struggle in the least bit. I am pleased. I might even leave my desk for lunch today because of it!

Uh Oh.

Such a darling print.


Men & Woman.

All men should dress like this:

And I should dress like this:

Need, Need, Need.

I've become very needy on this blog lately. But all the Jonathan Adler for lifeguard press stuff? It's a need. I simply can't live without those tumblers.


It's going to be 63 today? Time to buy new sandals from Piperlime! These feet need to breathe!

Perhaps you. It's important to start with a neutral.

But I DO need something with height for cropped boyfriend jeans.

Or I can be practical and buy a strappy number that will highlight my calves.

Only In NY.

Free chairs? Like, a FREE molded blue plastic Eames? And a FREE ice blue velvet from Room and Board? I kid you not. Only on the streets of NYC will you find designer chairs with a note that says "Take me home" on it.

All from the masterminds of House Beautiful. Brilliant, brilliant marketing.

Read about it here.


I am madly in love with this treehouse HOTEL.

Has anyone seen the new Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland? Movie was okay but Alice's outfits? AMAZING. Especially a strapless number that I can't find an image of anywhere!

Facial Hair.

I love a good moustache. Especially on a tote.


Oh Spring.

How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

I do love this weather - even though today is rainy. Especially in the form of garden notecards from R. Nichols.

Veuve champagne, homemade pizza and chocolate cake from the best bakery ever made for a pretty good birthday.

Now it's back to work!

Sorry I haven't posted this week. New job = not a lot of time. I'll be back in the game soon enough.

Happy Birthday...

to me.

That's all. I love birthdays.

Feels Like Spring.


With Spring comes a lot of new beginnings. For me? I'm starting a new job today and turning 26 this week too. I'm glad I get to ring in new changes with some warmer weather! Yayyyy!

Check It.

See what's been popular over at Charles and Hudson this month. I whipped up a little Craigslist shopping tip list that made the cut. I'm currently scouring Craigslist for a bureau for our bedroom. A major downside of living in Maine? Craigslist here ain't got nothin' on NYC.
