rose buds + vanilla

Hello, Weekend! Hello, Summer! Hello, Beautiful! Right to it then…I stumbled on this Vera Wang Embrace Rose Buds and Vanilla Eau De Toilette pretty randomly and it was such a surprise I’d thought I’d share a my little, uh, review-aye-poo. Rose and vanilla happen to be two of my favorite scents. I’m a snob about…

sweet cream and sugar cones

The LAST thing I should be thinking about right now is ice cream because I’m currently teddy-bear shaped. But, how cute is this clip from Bi-Rite Creamery and their book Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones (released April 2012); LOVE the cover. I got lost on Amazon last night looking for a yoga book and DVD.…

oh. my. word.

Patterned Cake Roll from dulcedelight on Vimeo. I sincerely wish that Raiza was my best friend. She is too fricken adorable for words. Please do visit her blog regularly (I do)… she always posts the most inspiring recipes and how-to videos. I really feel like everything she makes is completely doable (by me, even!) because…

zoom, zoom!

My Restoration Hardware Baby & Child catalog arrived yesterday and I love it all! Take this vintage pedal plane and aviation inspired nursery, for example. It’s right up my alley…or runway, I suppose! I’m still heavily favoring the boy stuff, if you didn’t already notice. I think sometime soon I will put my little bear…

feltstory

I was knocked over today by the cuteness of this lil’ fuzzy guy. Spotted him in an Etsy treasury and clicked faster than you can say ohmegahthatscute. He’s from FeltStory, he’s Russian (of course!) and has some very adorable friends. I’m not sure how durable these little guys are but I know that they are…

owly shadow puppets

I’ve had two nightmares in two nights. Not so fun. But it made me think about what things parents can do to help their kids not be so afraid of the dark. (Not that I’m afraid of the dark…much) Step one: a nightlight Step two: a story Step three: make something that’s scary into play…

hunny, I'm home…

There was not one thing on the Restoration Hardware Baby and Child site that I didn’t like. NOT ONE. I know you don’t know me, but that is saying a lot. Modern vintage (mod-vint, we’ll call it) must be my cup of tea (or my kind of tee-pee!). It all started when I spied the…
