As in the earrings, not the dudes.
Five years ago for Christmas my stepdad gave me a set of diamond studs set in white gold, and I think I can just about count the number of times I’ve taken them off on my fingers and toes. I have small ears and they’re the perfect size, nothing too flashy, and they go with absolutely everything. In other words, perfection.
I have plenty of longer earrings, but I’m realizing I’m not really a dangley earring kind of girl. I am however hoping to get a few more pairs of classic studs to mix things up at bit.

Clockwise: me being all avant garde in my bathroom, beautiful vase of flowers from a friend’s bridal shower, my first blind embossing project, the latest incarnation of my personal business cards, my cat Roxy, my favorite flats, the perfect shade of poppy red (essie’s Lacquered Up), the light wall at Republic Gastropub, my embroidery floss collection
You already know all about Instagram, love it, and use it all the time right? Thought so. It happens to be my favorite iPhone app, well, ever. Snap a photo with your phone, choose a filter that makes you look like a way more talented photographer than you actually are, write a witty caption, and instantly share on Twitter, Facebook, or flickr. And it’s free. BOOM.Posted In technology

With spring and warm weather finally here (It was 91º on Tuesday!) my bike obsession has returned full force. I’m loving this one by Van Hulsteijn. Herman van Hulsteijn manages to create an aesthetic that’s somewhere smack dab in the middle between futuristic and retro. Damn.Posted In outdoors
I go through phases of food obsessions, do you? So far this year it’s been couscous. (Hello there, carbs!) There was also a brief stint with beef, but I don’t like to talk about it. (Reformed vegetarian here, folks.) Oh, and those two weeks with eggs were magical. But today I want to share one of the most versatile foods ever, risotto. This relative to rice can be savory or sweet, it does it all.

Tea towels are one of those things that I’m continually amassing, then wondering where they all came from. I love that it’s essentially an empty canvas of material that can be turned into an affordable piece of art. Then we display it on a hook or draped over the oven handle in our kitchen, and dry our dishes and our hands on it. A little under-appreciated, no? (Kidding!) I’ve got my eye on these beauties.
