living in

like a simple train of thought, brooklyn-based artist echo eggebrecht's painstakingly perfect interior paintings seem to connect without an obvious narrative. her beautiful selection of color and pattern makes it hard to look away.

self control

right now, winter sales are going on in france. because stores don't have clearance racks year-round it makes the bi-annual sales that much more exciting... that is, if you can make it through the season. what i wouldn't give to visit a few of my favorite paris shops.

a year in books

sometimes it feels like i spend most of my nights curled up with a laptop rather than a book, but looking back there were a number that i read and loved last year. with so many amazing pieces of literature, how do you choose? what are you reading? i tend to gravitate toward contemporary fiction, so i try to alternate with an unread classic or autobiography.

hold me

for christmas, i received this sweet little leather pouch, by baggu. it's just right for when i don't want to carry around a monster satchel... or when i need something small to fit inside.

cut me out

winter is going to be here for a while so i might as well embrace it, ideally in the carven la femme hiver 2011 collection. oui, s'il vous plaƮt.

endless shoreline

i spent my summers growing up on one of minnesota's 10,000+ lakes. to this day, i can't get through july and august without running off a dock or kicking my feet in the nearest body of water. designer nicole meyer is taking on the task of branding one mn lake a day for the next, well, 27 years. during that time, i will be patiently waiting for big turtle.

back from a little break

well... what was going to be one week off turned into one month. i'm sorry for disappearing! i will be back next week, thoroughly rested and ready with new posts for a new year.
