hotel havana

I am loving the Hotel Havana - located along The Riverwalk in San Antonio. It was designed by Liz Lambert - the same genius behind the Hotel San Jose
and Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin.

Looks like the perfect spot to beat that Texas heat.

See more images on their website.

And book a room!
For me. :)

English Rose

I love these behind the scenes shots from the new Burberry Cosmetics
campaign shot by Mario Testino.

The line just debuted and is inspired by the iconic Burberry
trench and the stormy English weather.

See more here.


I love these limited edition "Breathless" posters designed by the Rodarte sisters.

Available at Barney's. Obvi.

hitched in brooklyn

I love Jenna & Jon's circus themed wedding in Brooklyn.

They both wore photos of their grandparents...

a vintage locket for her....

and the cover of a vintage pocket watch for him.

Look how adorable their wedding invites are!

Their signature cocktail "The Pink Elephant".
Come to mama.

Pastel cupcakes on vintage mismatched china.
Love this idea!

The happy couple. Live happily ever after, k?
