things that light up my life

it's memorial day, a time for peace, reflection, and gratitude, what does this day mean for you?
my peaceful pup, more on her progress here.
for me it's a day of dreaming and hoping, this chandelier in a downtown loft is lighting up my life right now. 
so is the thought of a coke and a smile
and mood boards a source of my artistic inspiration here
loving this home office, complete organization in the midst of chaos

sunday inspiration {green things}

 these boxwood gardens make me yearn for a garden like this so full of green botanicals

also makes me realize I have some work to do, patio furniture that needs refinishing, 
plants that need some organic spraying. But for now the Times is wisking me away to New York the closest I can get to Gotham for now.

lock me up {tiffany locks}

I'm not one for jewels, bangles or bracelets at work
come the weekend I just want to play, bring out the bobbles and bling.

 Did I ever mention losing my Tiffany key chain, car keys and all? The engraved inscription on the key ring says, "Please return to Tiffany & Co." so you know what I did? I called them to see if they had been returned. no luck there but they turned up in an unexpected place later.

big dreams {in small places}

I have always dreamed of having my own intimate space. Just like a favorite boutique hotel, a grand entrance with special attention to exquisite details. Music to set the mood too of course like this. The best part of all a salon that specializes in customer service at it's finest with you as the mane event.  A reminder that good things come in smaller packages. What are you dreaming of?

starry eyed

You may know about my favorite Starry eyed tattoo artist, Kat Von D but did you know she now has a new clothing line?
I want a pair of those skin script inspired leggings!
Kat also has her own art gallery, Wonderland where you can see the likes of work like this above from Kevin Llewellyn' who's gothic art reminds me of a cross between Dia De Los Muertosinspired Calaveras mixed with darkness.
I have always been intrigued by the darkness she displays in many of her tattoos and look yet her softer femininity comes through with a strong attachment to her culture, both Mexican and German. She can also play a bad-ass Beethoven tune.
Girlfriend also has a bitchin make up line at Sephora has some of the best pearlized pigment I've worked with, perfect when you want a little shimmer for that starry eyed look that makes a statement, Just like her tattoos.

Have you captured any special moments lately?

peek a boo beauty {penelope cruz}

Nothing like a dose of Penélope Cruz to remind me how beautiful life can be. New mother to baby Leo with Actor Javier Bardem. She is one of the iconic beauty's that has a look I love to mirror.  Her hair, her signature, eyeliner  so timeless. Another iconic beauty here.

bananas for these heels

If I could choose a favorite shoe right now Charlotte Olympia's hot heels drive me bananas!
the soles have a sexy platform and a concave cut that is uniquely her own.
colorful and fun
Kind of the way I think hair should be, a style uniquely your own, colorful, and fun!
Speaking of hair, this girl needs to get her roots done. You remember the story about the cobbler in the shoe factory that has holes in his heels?
 Sometimes were so busy taking care of everyone else we need to stop and take care of ourselves. Looking forward to some rest and relaxation this weekend how about you?

met pet

The met ball is here and whether you like it or not ornamental feathers and hopefully faux fur is in full gala splendor. Where else could your wear Alaia boots like these? 
Love a gal who takes a chance and choses a little black dress like this instead of your classic ball gown.
  champagne wishes and caviar dreams!
