Have you met Tokyo Milk? No? Well, let me introduce you to your new best friend.

The packaging alone had me at hello. But the scents are also to-die-for. Buy some now.

P.S. Don't forget about my contest! Please comment on this post to win a prize. Do you not believe I'm capable of offering a fabulous prize?! Come on people! Freebies!

I am loving the zipper heel trend that's been going around. Luckily for me, one of the options below is way cheaper than the other. I propose a contest! Comment your price guesses and the person that guesses closest will receive a fab prize from me. Yay.


Go forth and guess! The winner will be revealed on Monday!

This past weekend was one of those non-stop, full of crazyness extravaganzas that literally made me unable to get off my tush when I got home last night. It took all of my strength to get out of bed this morning and frankly, I'm still half asleep. Someone take pity on me.

Note: It's a bad idea to browse bedding sets when tired.

I'm not a soda drinker. I'm a seltzer or beer or wine or chocolate milk drinker since I swore off soda quite awhile ago. Lobsterman and I went for a walk the other night and he ordered an iced americano while I picked this out. I'll be honest. My decision was wholly based on the cute packaging. But it wasn't bad for a soda either. Cute right? Blue Sky soda is made in Santa Fe (a very cool city) and I highly recommend this brand if you are in fact a pop drinker.

(can you see the holes in my wall in the background? that was from an art hanging attempt gone awry. heh.)

I got this book from my best friend for my birthday. It's a cute read from start to finish.

What's your fave children's book? My all-time favorite is probably this. Or these. Oh man, and this.

Iced Coffee.

Sometimes I am too lazy to turn on the coffee pot in the morning. I know, I know. Lately I've gotten used to stopping into my local coffee shop for an iced latte on the way to work. No more my friends! No more! My wallet will appreciate the purchase of this.

Now that I have an uber cute vessel to carry my homemade iced coffee's to work in, I shall have no excuse.

Nuts & Bolts, $14

UPDATE: My 22 year old brother just emailed me to request this for his birthday. Sigh. Men never grow up do they?


I really love the Happy Birthday plates from Fish's Eddy. Afterall, Birthday cakes should not be served on ordinary dishes.

from $11

A Tisket, A Tasket.

I need a bike basket.

Seriously though. Before I go all cuckoo over these baskets from Nantucket Bike Basket Co., I should really buy a bike. Or perhaps these can be fixed to fit over my shoulder? Something to think about.

Show You Care.

By sending an insanely inappropriate and sarcastic card to the ones you love.

This shop is full of all sorts of gems-some that I did not post because I do not want my blog to receive an "R" rating.

Ain't He.

..the cutest thing ever? Watson is getting old and has trouble going up stairs now. He is in a crate for two whole weeks on bed rest because of some back problems. I love his gray hairs in this photo. He is aging beautifully.

That's my man right there yo - that's my man!

Art Wall.

Though I'm pleased with my gallery of art for now (considering we have a small space) I'd love my living room to have art lined up like this. Beautiful.

I love these new stamp sets that Grace found from Yellow Owl Workshop. I'd love to make my own stationary and party invites with these. I mean, I have the time so my only excuse is sheer laziness.

Love This Dress But.

How does one wear it? Go braless? That seems dangerous.

And in unrelated news, this is why I don't have a boob job.

Two Things.

I never ever get tired of seeing the sun sparkle on the ocean.

And I will forever adore lighthouses since moving to Maine.

It never gets old.

New York mag has a hilarious slide show of "would be" movies of sitcom stars, inspired by the popularity of Date Night. Um. I'd see all of these movies.

In the words of Hall & Oates - Amy Poehler + Alec Baldwin, you make my dreams come true. Oooooh, ooo, oooo!

Desperately Seeking.

Hot pink lips. Does anyone have a good lipstick suggestions?

UPDATE: Purchased Revlon matte lipstick in Fuschia thanks to a Marie Claire tip. I LOVE IT.

Though I love living in Maine there are some days where I'd give just about anything to spend a few hours under one roof with my friends.

Seriously. Anything.
