Iosselliani

The fall collection..

Bead & Thorn Necklace

Bead & Thorn Necklace

from Iosselliani is breathtaking. A definite investment for sure, but these are pieces of jewelry you’ll want around if you’re looking to stand out. I personally think any of these necklaces would be fabulous paired with a tee and jeans (and of course bright lips as we always say). OR transform a simple dress into something smashing with just about anything from the line.

Rockett St George

Obsessed..

Rockett St George

Rockett St George

with Rockett St George. This gem of a shop has a “unique and eclectic mix of homeware and gifts,” as they so perfectly state. I’ve got my eye on so many of the wonderful things Rockett St George offers, especially the Tie Dye Bedspread, this wallpaper and almost all of the lighting options they’ve got stocked. Really, it’s hard to narrow it down, so go take a peek and see what you might find.

Warm Fragrance

Warm Fragrance

before meeting up with Megan, I wandered into Warm. I instantly became smitten with everything in the shop, including the awesome decor. I’m on a tight budget so I unfortunately walked out empty-handed…except for the business card. After my obsession grew, I decided to check out their website and have to admit that I was slightly disappointed the site didn’t offer all of the loveliness that was in the shop. However, I did come across this fragrance, which is a mix of beach, sun, sand and everything else that takes my mind to a wonderful place. I’m curious to give it a try – once my funds allow of course.

Bill Cunningham New York

Watched..

Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham New York last week. The documentary is about the unassuming yet extremely talented, down to earth New York Times fashion photographer, Bill Cunningham. It’s completely fascinating and a must-watch, even for those who aren’t obsessed with fashion. At the end of the day, it’s about a passionate man doing what he loves and that’s a lesson we can all learn from!

The Meat Free Monday Cookbook

Wanting to..

The Meat Free Monday Cookbook

The Meat Free Monday Cookbook

get my hands on The Meat Free Monday Cookbook. Of course, it did capture my attention because it has Stella McCartney’s name attached to it, but I have been planning to cut back on meat for some time now. The book gives guidance on how to eat meat-free one day a week and offers easy and tasty recipes. The best part about it is that you don’t have to be a vegetarian to try this one out.

Stogo

Finally..

Stogo

Stogo

made it to Stogo in the East Village. It’s been a place I’ve wanted to check out since learning about the organic, dairy-free ice cream joint.  They have a ton of delicious flavors (like the combo I got: Salted Caramel Pecan and Mexican Chocolate) – all of which are made from scratch using premium ingredients and leaving out stuff like refined sugars, preservatives, artificial flavors, gluten, or animal products. Even their cups and utensils are made from sustainable, biodegradable materials.  Does dessert get any better?

Wary Meyers Tongue Chair

What kid..

Wary Meyers Tongue Chair

Wary Meyers Tongue Chair

wouldn’t want this chair? The Tongue Chair by Wary Meyers takes a vintage fiberglass chair, gives it a new coat of enamel paint with some new details like eyes and adds a pink vinyl tongue for the finishing touch. The result is a functional chair thats’s comfortable and doubles as a piece of art.  It’s one of those got to have pieces.

How To Tie a Bow Tie

Tying..

a bow tie properly is tricky, so I’m loving this “how to” from General Knot & Co. The illustrated guide takes you step by step, and is surely a great reference to have bookmarked. And if your not the bow tie wearing type, then check out tips on mastering the half-windsor or four-in-hand knots. Look like you know what your doing (even if you don’t).
