while i am no longer a student-
i cannot deny that there is a small flutter
in my heart when i walk past a fully stocked
back to school aisle at the super market.
there's something about a brand new
binder, a crisp college-ruled notebook
and an ink-filled pen that
get me every time.
and did i mention a bouquet
of freshly- sharpened
because these pencils from carbon crusader
would be the icing on the back to school cake.

yesterday morning, my best friend, carolyn,
called me the very best news:
she got engaged !!!
she and her
boyfriend fiance are away in the cape this week, so
under the pretense of going off for an early morning fishing trip, her
fiance lured her down to the beach an hour or so later to show her the
fish he caught- and when she came down to the beach
she saw these words written in the sand,
and her man kneeling beside them!
isn't your heart melting?
i cannot wait to see the ring in person- but i can tell you this:
it's a canary yellow diamond with a sparkling halo,
and as my bff says, feels like it's
just meant to be there.
cheers, my loves !!

(spotted on honestly WTF)
lucky blogger natalie joos and a handful of models were granted
the privilege of visiting cloudwalk- diane von furstenberg's connecticut estate,
and allowed access to her archives and latest collections for an all day photo shoot.
i am in love with the playful mixture of prints and the
relaxed backdrop of her eclectic living space.
i heart dvf.

last night i watched seven sinners (1940), a film starring
marlene dietrich & john wayne. and while the story line was
nothing spectacular- the costumes were!! my jaw continuously
dropped as dietrich's character bijou, pulled off one over the top,
feathered & be-jeweled piece after another.
here she is in the same dress as above, but with fresh flowers
to make the look a little different in a scene. genius!
the birdcage veil, the cuff bracelet, the parasol, the pointed manicure..
it's too good!
just look at those gloves! and that bling!!
the turban was one of my favorites, but hard to capture...
and the all lace number looked like something right
out of the latest dolce & gabbana ads.
the head pieces. the headpieces.
and then this rhinestone necklace + black shirt + sparkling skirt
combination had me thinking holiday thoughts in the midst of
this summer heat wave.

where they share the daily breakfasts and wake-up habits of some
of the most notable celebrities. not only is it visually appealing,
but it also tickles me to picture any famous person
actually eating anything!
what is your morning routine?
mine is a cup of coffee in the car on the way to work.
Thursday, July 18, 2013 food is fabulous.
