Fashion + Interiors Mash-Up

I was recently contacted by the uber girly nail polish company - Julep - asking me to pick a favorite nail color from their Fall Collection, then create an outfit around it and share it with you here on the blog. I decided to take it one step further and...

Fashion – spring musts

  I've said before I'm not that into clothes and I especially don't like shopping for them. Well something has shifted and this is no longer true. I have a little confession.... I find myself thinking about shoes sometimes a lot. And...

FarmHouseUrban – Week in Review

The weeks prior to the end of the year were a blur - a combination of work deadlines, social events and of course, the usual holiday craziness. There were a few highlights I thought I'd share... Shutterfly, if you aren't familiar, is an online company that imprints...

Style – Vintage Clothing

Hi. I hope you've had a good week. Around here we've been wrapping up the school year (yipee!)- studying for finals, attending end of the year events and getting ready for Lily's 8th Grade Graduation tomorrow. Thank goodness we planned ahead and shopped...

Wanderlust and Summer

Hi. It just hit me that summer is here. It isn't only that Memorial Day just passed and I started wearing white jeans again, but I also feel a giddy sense of excitement starting to brew. What is it about summer that conjures those feelings? Experiences seem to...

NYC – the gift show and other inspirations

I was in NYC last week attending the NYIGF. The trade show takes place twice per year - in August and January. There are literally miles of aisles to walk through with wholesalers selling just about everything you can imagine from plastic gadgets that are one stop...

pick-me-ups

With the holidays over and Spring still a few months away, I've been looking for new ways to boost the joy factor while getting through this stretch of long cold days. Thought I would share a few I've found, just in case you were in need of a pick-me-up too....

Cool stuff I’m digging.

I keep promising that I will blog more often and here it is over a week since my last post...  I'm actually currently on a little vay-kay, the kind that's non-stop rather than relaxing, so that's my excuse.  I get back home on Wed, so I'll...

Staycations and Jean Paul Gaultier

It was Spring Break this week for the kids.  We stayed home for a variety of reasons, so in between work obligations I spent a rainy afternoon with my daughter attending the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the De Young Museum.  This is a must see if...

Shopping Heaven – Unionmade

This one's for the boys... But the store's look is so darn fab, I think ladies will like it too.  Incidentally, my husband got me a fantastic new camera lens, however my photos suck with it... Old one will be back for next time... If I were to pick out...

New York City Visit: fashion

Confession - I'm not all that into clothes shopping.  However, I do like to look as though I am!  If I had a magic fairy that could make the perfect outfits appear in my closet so I would never have to try anything on, I would be a happy camper. In the...

Packing for nyc… help!

Inspired Eggs

My immensely talented artist friend Jackie came into the store a couple of days ago to say hi. She also gave me the sweetest gift... A package of paper mache eggs with inspiring quotes inside - handmade by Jackie.  When she gave them to me she said, "To...

Ralph Lauren in Paris: Americana on the Left Bank

I can't think of an American designer who better captures the American spirit than Ralph Lauren. His talent as a clothing designer has stood the test of time, as his collections are always classic with a nod towards Bohemian Luxe and Sporty Chic....

Sex and the City

Did you see it this weekend?  I didn't. Nor did I see the first, or even many of the episodes...  Don't get me wrong (or worse, stop reading my blog!) -- I enjoy watching it, I just couldn't get into it that much.  I have no idea why,...

Did you figure it out?

I know, I know - you've been on pins and needles.    Maybe I'm the last to know, but I certainly was surprised to find out that these stylish and affordable fashions came from...    Lands End Canvas, launched in November...
