I read the recipe. Looks so easy, I might even attempt it!
Get in my belly! Bakerella has turned my fave cake into a fantastic snack form! Too pretty!

Hargreave Carafe with Glass from Clio
Monogrammed Glass Carafe from Williams-Sonoma
Bedside Carafe and Tumbler
It’s always a good idea to have a drink on hand, whether it be bedside or desk side. I think it would be lovely to have a beautiful carafe and these ones even have tumblers as covers so you can be sure there aren’t any floaters when you reach for a drink. Function and beauty baby!
I have no idea what it’s made of, but I want to be in it. It wants to be on me.
I’ve chosen this hot little number because it so awesomely amazeballs. It’s so put together that I can get around everywhere in this outfit, from working at the design studio all day to rocking it at night. Though I’m not sure I’d last too long on the heels all day but I’m willing to try! Each piece can also be the centerpiece of other outfits that I look forward to building ♥.

1900’s Spoon Ring
Tree of Life Cuff
These babies are forged from 100% reclaimed metals, creating one-of-a-kind, artistic jewellery while passing over the harmful social and environmental effects of mining of traditional metals.
I much prefer handbags that have more structure to them and these look so very capable of holding my life.
Yep, this image has combined two of my favourite things, loving and eating. I would like to do both at once.
I think you’re adorable in a hardcore, studded kind of way. Let’s go out sometime, I’ll buy you a drink and maybe if I’m lucky I’ll get to caress you. Oh, that might be a little forward. I apologize, I can’t help myself.
In your book you say that publicity is built on spinning the truth. How would you differentiate between spinning the truth and a lie?
[Laughs.] Oh my God, if I can answer this question I could maybe get a religion. I would say that spinning the truth has a starting place that’s good, real and right, whereas a lie does not. It really depends on the perception and intention of the spinner.
This quote in particular is applicable to any industry that needs to present itself to the public, audience, users, consumers because a good brand or good company need to have a core that is coming from a place of truth in order to resonate with the public.
The difference in just creating a poster and building a brand is that you can create a really amazing advertisement for a shitty product (“the lie”) but people aren’t going to keep buying into you whereas a well developed strategy (“spinning the truth”) will compel people to try you out and keep coming back for more. And as a designer where my role is to present a company/brand/product, I have found that the most successful campaigns always expressed themselves truthfully.
I’m looking forward to picking up her book “If You Have to Cry Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You”. I’m sure it’ll be a fun and entertaining read, much like what I’ve seen from her appearances in the MTV shows “The Hills” and “The City”. And now you know I have a weakness for bubble gum shows.
Anyway, read the Times Magazine Interview with Kelly Cutrone to find out more about her. She rocks my world.
The very lovely 10 Spot Nail Bar is holding a launch party for Cheeky Monkey at their Leslieville/The Beach location (1402 Queen Street East, Studio 01) this Thursday, February 11, 7 to 9pm. I'm looking forward to the party and have a look at the new polishes. You should come too, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note the stack of bracelets on the left. I like.
Getting to travel. I like.
And to top it all off, some sweet sweet ice cream!
So adorable! Now get hopping to my finger! Tee hee.
Oh you cute little book, you will be mine… maybe that sweet larger tin too.
“I really like clean lines and very polished, manicured looks – but with some kind of accessory or jacket that adds a twist. Think ‘ladies that lunch…with edge;’ uptown meets downtown; that kind of stuff. But I wouldn’t say I have one particular look that I like. I like it all.”
I'm obsessed with rings, I'm not sure if you get that yet but I am.
These incredible photos were taken by wildlife photographer Michel Denis-Huot, in Kenya’s Masai-Mara Reserve, and show three grown male cheetah’s playing and cuddling with a young Impala, instead of tearing it apart and eating it.
The cheetahs were just roaming across the wilderness, when they spotted a pack of Impalas, which they decided to chase. One little antelope wasn’t fast enough and got left behind. When the cheetahs caught up with it, they simply started playing with what supposed to be their food. The three felines started licking the Impala, put their paws on its head, cuddling, but nothing threatening.
After a playing session, the Impala ran away unharmed. The only remotely logical explanation is that the three cheetahs were already too full and tired for another kill.
I think it’s a great plan to dress up to feel as pretty as you can.
Personally, when I start having a rough and stressful day, I like to take a moment for myself and start the process of feeling good again. So sometimes, it’s true, looking good can make you feel good, vice versa.
It’s no secret that rings are my favourite accessories, but today I forgot them at home. I know it’s silly but my hands felt a little light and I missed them. I even contemplated shopping for more after work because I was itching to put on some sparkly, bubbly things around my fingers!
Note: Vanity Fair March 2010, Young Hollywood
First saw her in SuperBad, enjoyed the sillyness of The House Bunny, surprised to see her in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past and rocked my world in Zombieland, thus securing her place in my girl crush roster for being pretty, funny and badass.

The ring is gorgeous. I’d keep my out for more on that.
