Interior of the Week

How great is this little breakfast nook?  Perfect for lazy weekend mornings. . .


Happy Sunday!

It's been a busy week, hence the Sunday post, finishing up the scanning project and a quick trip to Pocatello to visit family have me beat.  Thank goodness for Sundays to relax.
Here are a few links from the week:

Canopy beds are just lovely, they add fill the space and make a great visual impact.  I'm also loving these abstract prints.

It's the Weekend

I'm completely knackered, off-schedule from watching the European clay court season, and ready for the weekend.  I'll be watching the final tomorrow morning and making a crepe cake.  How about you? Here are a few links from the week:

Kate Bosworth x Coachella

Coachella fashion can either be amazing or downright terrible, but nobody does it better than Kate Bosworth.

The simplicity of this space is endearing, from the white and wood palette to the dresser vignette complete with sun hats.


Have a Great Weekend!

It's been a long week and to be honest, I'm a little burnt out at work.  I'm planning on having a relaxing, yet productive weekend, because there is nothing better than finishing projects and starting new ones.
Here are a few links from the week:

Mad Men Season 6 premiered on Sunday, do you still care about Don's affairs?

Using a flat iron to make waves via The Beauty Department

Love this color combo of navy + dusty pink

Working on a variation of this project, just need all the supplies. . .


Wide Brim Wool Felt Hats

I never thought I would be a person with a growing hat collection, but with an expanding collection of Panama hats and baseball caps, I think a wide brim wool felt hat might not be too far away. . .

These Janessa Leone hats from her sophomore collection "Shadows" are meant to be passed down to many future generations; what a lovely sentiment.

Davis Cup Weekend!

@Bryanbrothers put on a show during open practice in Boise as Captain Courier looks on.
I'm in Boise, Idaho today to watch Novak Djokovic v. John Isner and Sam Querrey v. Viktor Troicki. Never thought I would say that.  I can't wait for the Bryan Brothers to play tomorrow.  It's not every weekend that you get to cross something off your Mighty Life List.  Hope you have a great weekend!

Gwyneth Paltrow | It's All Good

I'll admit that I pre-ordered Gwyneth Paltrow's new book "It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great."  (It was joined with "How to Travel the World on $50 a Day: Travel Cheaper, Longer, Smarter" to get free shipping.  You know how it is.)

I try to eat mostly vegan and many vegetarian cookbooks rely heavily on cheese, eggs, and processed substitutes.  Gwyneth's book, politely I'm sure, suggests no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deepwater fish, no potatoes, no tomatoes, no bell pepper, no eggplant, no wheat, no meat, and no soy.  It will be interesting to see the recipes she can vouch for with such strict restrictions.

This article in the Washington Post, "Gwyneth Paltrow: We love to hate her, but we’ll buy her cookbook anyway" sums up why we will subject ourselves to the gratuitous ratio of author photos to recipe photos and lines like, "I once overnighted a batch from London to my manager in Los Angeles who was doing the clean program and was dying for a cookie! They did not disappoint."  Gwyneth offers a glimpse into the utopia of an endless food budget and time galore to worry about all these issues, while we can just skim what we like and move on.

Will you be buying Gwyneth's newest vanity project?


April Resolutions

When you hear that the next Davis Cup tie is less than a 4-hour drive away, and know the No. 1 tennis player and No. 1 doubles tennis players are going to be there, you buy the tickets ASAP.  I can't wait to head to Boise this weekend and experience the energy of the Davis Cup.

I always feel like doing projects when the weather finally warms up.  I'm planning to attempt a crepe cake for my birthday and construct a light box to capture some prettier photos.  I'm also itching to start a sewing project of some sort.  Do you have any projects up your sleeve?
