The Row Bags

In terms of my decorating style, I've always been more of a maximalist. While minimal home interiors always appeal to me, they just don't work with my messy eclectic style. When it comes to fashion though, I've always dressed more on the minimal side...I have no problem disguising my inner hoarder when it comes to clothes and accessories. This is why i love these bags from The Row so much! The Olsen girls debuted their sleek bag collection at Barney's in New York earlier this month. I have a feeling these "anti-it" bags will ironically make their way to "it" status.

I've always had an inclination towards classics in fashion, and nobody pulls off classic looks better than the french. These images evoke that seemingly effortlessly chic look that all Parisienne women seem to have embedded in their genetic make up.

Listen! Cataldo

Alright so Cataldo...Sort of sounds like a mix between Death Cab, New Pornographers and Beirut with a little bluegrass thrown in there? Anyway I like it.

A Little Pick Me Up

I love everything about this. These are definitely words of wisdom to live by. I may have to invest in some chalkboard paint.

Beirut - The Rip Tide Out August 30

My very favourite band Beirut will be releasing their new album "The Rip Tide," on August 30th (just a little after my birthday yay!!). I've heard an early leak and let me just say Brilliant! A lot of the songs have a sort of softer "Nantes" or "Postcards from Italy" vibe to them, which is fine by me. Check out "East Harlem" from the upcoming album (ps im not sure if the video belongs to the band or not, but i like it anyway).

My friend Erisa is visiting from London England, and she brought us some french macarons, my most favourite dessert. I've never attempted to make them before and I hear its pretty difficult, but I'm definitely going to try  the recipe that i posted below, I figured Martha would know what she's doing.
