kate spade in nyc

The Kate Spade store in NYC is OUT OF THIS WORLD in their store "look."  It's right around the corner from where I work and just walking past it makes me HAPPY! Right now, they have their entire back wall covered in gold sequins. It's pretty awesome!!! Located on 5th Avenue and 20th Street!! (The girl in the picture I do not know!)

Before this, they were all STRIPED OUT! It's such a beautiful store!

painting gray

My boyfriend and I are painting our bedroom this weekend. This is about 5 years overdue. It was my grand idea to paint the room a light yellow when we moved in (because that's my favorite color) and little did I know that that's just not a great bedroom color. Also, little did I know that when we ran out of paint half way through and had to go back and get more that they gave us one shade different and half the walls look like crap!!!

I've now concluded that bedrooms should be serene, calming and minimal. So, I have been wanting to paint the room a LIGHT gray for a long time. White curtains, light gray walls, some pictures framed with simple black frames. Here are a few things that have inspired me color wise...

One of my favorite blogs (even though I'm not a Mom) is the blog MY MOM SHOPS. And, it just so happens, as I was sifting through my Google Reader blogs today that I discovered that she POSTED ABOUT EMMA J CARDS! WOOHOO! Thanks so much!

Or, you can always do it yourself!! haha

Dreaming of cold weather...

As many of you know, I love fabulous greeting cards. As an avid snow skier, I fell in love with this card. They are printed on wood and I want them! Now, I need to figure out who made it!

cute baby flops

So, most people know about the Havaians craze that's been sweeping the U.S. by storm for the last few years. These lvoely Brazilian flip flops have now even made their way in to the GAP. And NOW, they have BABY Havianas. I'm in love!!!

Had to post this. Might be photo-shopped but I still love it.

printable Birthday Calendar

I recently came across this little Birthday calendar from Martha Stewart that you can print out and fill in. I LOVE IT. I have tried lots of different ways to be reminded of Birthdays and somehow I still forget. This is great. It's one page, one column and you can write every birthday down. I posted it on a little bulletin strip above my computer with my other important things. It's simple, classic and small. Click here and open the template and print it out. I printed it on heavyweight card stock so it wouldn't get bent.

new wine rack

I am in the market for a new wine rack. I have never owned one but have always wanted one. I want one that is modern and has a great design and that holds between 4 and 8 bottles. NO bigger, no smaller. Here are some that I have found that are pretty cool!
