1. How gorgeous is this triptych from Trowbridge Gallery? So graceful and sort of unexpected? I am planning to hang this in my living room on a big empty wall. All of the other prints on Trowbridge are equally amazing.
I know I join the entire city of Boston and the nation in saying that I am terribly saddened, shocked and disgusted by the events of the Boston Marathon yesterday. It is so shocking to not only see this happen to the city I live in, but to deal with yet another act of violence and terror. The chaos that happened yesterday eerily gave me the same feelings I experienced on September 11th: not knowing what to expect next, trying to account for all my friends and loved ones in the city and pure horror. It is truly a nauseating feeling to know that such a joyous and empowering occasion was destroyed by pure hate and violence.
On a more positive note, I am literally beyond words in regards to all the acts of heroism, bravery and courage that was exhibited by all of the medical personnel, police officers, special forces and marathon spectators. This is what makes me so proud to be a Bostonian.
I plan on doing what I can to help by donating blood and encourage everyone to check-out American Red Cross locations where they can help out. Find information here: http://www.redcross.org/news/press-release/Red-Cross-Statement-on-Boston-Marathon-Explosions
My endless love and support goes out to everyone who was affected, big or small, or to those who even had a few seconds of panic and worry. Life is precious and I think we will all be reminded of that over the next few days.
I am off to Martha's Vineyard for the weekend, one of my favorite places, for a much needed girls weekend to relax, laugh, and just get away from it all. I feel like escaping for a few days, either alone or with friends, always puts things into perspective. Especially this time of the year, the island is so quiet, peaceful, and the ocean is bright blue with never-ending rolling waves. I have so much on my mind as we head into a new season- personal goals, new adventures, making some life changes...my brain basically looks like a Jackson Pollock painting. Excited to report back next week with some new inspo and what I may figure out...and some kickass pictures. Cheers to the weekend!
Oh hey, this is what my head looks like.
I am obsessed with this song- makes me so excited for warm weather & good vibes. This will be on repeat all weekend.
Being the first day of Spring & still dealing with cold, snowy weather in the Northeast, all I can think about is warm weather and when everything turns from grey to green. Although it still is not appearing outside, it is definitely prevalent on the runway and in decor.
So everyone knows about the brand revamp that JCPenney (or JCP these days) has been going through for the past two years. I always spotted a few cute apparel items on their commericals and recently checked out their website. Little did I know that they have an amazing housewares/decor assortment. They have some awesome guest designer collections such as Johnathan Adler, Conran & Pantone. The best part- everything is budget friendly!
I was most impressed with their Michael Graves collaboration/collection. Clean, sleek & very designerly. Here are some chic & affordable items- I highly recommend you check out these collections before they are no more.
