mermaid chic

Sarah of Haute Design posted these beautiful photos from Elle and I instantly was reminded of mermaids! The sunlight in these pics is so gorgeous.

The dress in the first image makes my closet hurt.

Today's Groupon is for Papabubble - a grown ups candy store here in NYC. Apparently they make all their candy in house and even do a daily "candy show" where you can watch the confections being born. Looks like fun!

p.s. Do you guys use Groupon? I'm addicted.

I know macaroons are all over the GD place right now, but come on peeps...these look F'in pretty AND delicious. Co-founder Christina Ha studied the art of macaroon making with none other than Pierre Herme - king of da macaroons. You know this stuff is legit.

Check out their etsy shop and make someone's day.

p.s. that logo is too cute.

favela redux

I LOVE this idea!! Here is a typical Brazilian favela before...

And after enlisting the help of community members, here is what it looks like after...

During the month of work, the community members were given paychecks and an education, both things that people who call favelas home often lack.

The group responsible plans to raise enough money to paint neighboring favelas, creating an entire hillside of community driven art work. Cool, right?

Beautiful!! You can learn more here.

puss in boots

The label for this South Australian wine cracks me up. Meow!
Do you guys judge wines by their labels? I'm definitely guilty of it!

bathroom envy

This bathroom from the SoHo Grand hotel is the interior design equivalent of seeing a freshly baked pie cooling on a windowsill - DROOL!! Yes - I'm a sucker for subway tile, but that Saul Steinberg wallpaper is taking this to another level of awesome.

sorry I like Booze.

I know you all think I'm a complete boozehound because I do at least one alcohol related post a week, but the truth is, it's reeeeally hot (I know, I know - I already told you!!) and the only thing keeping me going are thoughts of ice cold brewskis. Plus, my computer gets the shakes and the sweats if I don't give her the goods.

So...behold, the power of the Michelada.

ah...That's better.

let's get nautical

On the heels of a weekend spent in Nantucket I'm feeling Natutical. I have a soft spot for the men's brand Marblehead Greens. The oxford sunday shorts are just too good.

p.s. I promise to post all about Nantucket and make you all super jelly!
