Facebook’s Farmville

December 9th, 2009 Posted in curiosities | No Comments »

I recently got into playing Farmville (a friend’s influence)… Daily vigilance and not enough time! I’m enjoying myself though and I’m not in it to compete, just to have fun. I imagine it to be my own little Trianon.

Looking for a New Chic Scarf?

December 9th, 2009 Posted in Fashion | 2 Comments »

Look no further; Leigh & Luca‘s Bird Toile, Flowers & Trees, Doves, and many other lovely patterns are sure to inspire and delight! I recently purchased a Flower & Tree in grey; really excited to wear it (with its vibrant contrast flock prints against neutral grey). Will definitely liven up most any outerwear one may pair it with. Have a look; visit their site!

Seychelles Shoes

December 9th, 2009 Posted in anthropologie, shoes | No Comments »

Yet another amazing and distinctive brand of women’s footwear! Seychelles has been popularized by Anthropologie, Solestruck, and other stockists alike. I have a pair of pretty bronze open-toed pumps (unfortunately have to wait until Spring though to wear them). Love the vintagey flair and characteristic thick heels. They are also reasonably priced for their quality. Right now I’m lusting over a pair of metallic gold Lola wedges.

Holiday Decadence

December 7th, 2009 Posted in Foods & Desserts | No Comments »

Just a quick blurb about an awesome dessert company that was featured over this weekend’s Westchester Center’s Chocolate Expo/Show… Dutch Desserts :-D , LOVEEE their chocolate pie. I’ve had quite a few chocolate pies but this one for sure wins a BIG blue ribbon from me. Just don’t take my word for it! You must try it! This is Dutch Dessert’s website (www.dutchdesserts.com). They have other wonderful flavors too. Below is a very mediocre pic taken from my cell phone of three of their mini pies, chocolate, peach, and pumpkin. Oh, the crust is superb with perfect sweetness!

Symphonie Etched Glass

Love these etched glasses by Comptoir de Famille! I don’t believe that casual diningware or the like must match. I already have the ones by Tord Boontje and wouldn’t mind owning these as well. Both are handwash only, which doesn’t matter to me since I get to enjoy their beauty- well worth it!

New Spin on Purse Hangers

December 2nd, 2009 Posted in Cool Gadgets, curiosities | 2 Comments »

A great potential gift to a sister or galpal is Luxe Link’s purse hangers. From what I see on their site, there’s quite a selection- something for everyone. I first saw Luxe Link featured in Cambria Cove’s catalog. I’m nuts over the Rock Star Swarovski style!

Updated: January 12, 2010:
I received a beautiful artglass purse hook for Christmas by LSArts Incorporated. Check their website for stockists around your area!
