Happy Birthday.

Pictured above are these wonderful little cupcakes that my brother got me, they are Elmo and Cookie Monster! He said they are just like us, and honestly, they are. I adore my younger brother, he’s a gem. And the below photo is…

Design Moodboard: the mailbox

  Was walking around in Brooklyn last weekend and came across this most lovely mailbox! It is positively modern, like the house it loyally guards, and indeed seemed a bit out of place in Fort Greene. But still, it stood proudly and smiled back at me. My current design/apartment hunting/redecorating mood caused me to notice it immediately and capture this…

Design Moodboard – Loft Task Lamp

At the end of last week I got a sudden notice that I won’t be able to renew the least on my lovely apartment in Brooklyn, which is set to expire on September 30th. I was totally shocked and upset, and to some extent I still am. But I will have to look for a new place and I’m trying to see this as an opportunity.…

Enamel Jewelry

I’ve always been a fan of enamel jewelry, this is a specific style in Indian jewelry called meena kari. I remember trying on my mom’s wedding jewelry when I was very little and adoring how the colorful touches brought the pieces to life. Since last summer I’m starting to see a lot of enamel in fashion jewelry too. The bangles…

The Romper, Sumi

On Saturday I went for a long walk with my longtime friend Sumi. We hadn’t seen each other since…2006? Hard to believe that much time had passed, but like all that I love, when we meet again it’s like no time has passed at all. It was a gorgeous day and we scouted out different neighborhoods in Brooklyn — we’re…

Modern Pearls

I remember being a a teenager and thinking pearls were so old-fashioned. I thought the only way to wear them was as a short single strand over a very lady-like outfit. Which indeed is a classic look! Now though I really love pearls. I’ve come to adore their soft glow and luster. Unlike gems they don’t sparkle loudly, they whisper…

Music Video: Strength, Always in Style

All of history’s timeless beauties, those women that have that certain “je ne sais quoi” have all shared the same secret that gave them that magical inner glow. Inner Strength. Think about it: behind every legendary face, there was a story.  A struggle, heartbreak or tragedy. Surviving something, no matter how impossible it may seem to you or trivial it…

Ice Jewelry

I find these earrings really special for many reasons. The cut glass stones and dark hardware feel vintage, and the stones’ pale amethyst color lends a misty tone — that strange color the sky turns just before a thunderstorm. I love this color because it’s less flashy than clear stones would be, sophisticated glamour. The bib necklace pictured below is done in clear…

Le Look d’Ete: Bronze Glow

I love all seasons but summer is special to me because my birthday falls in August. For me summer means a vacation mindset, extra daylight, breezy nights and stargazing. And when I think of summer beauty, I think goddess-like: bronzed soft skin and a glow that from being happy with oneself. Too often I see overdone skin and makeup during summertime in the city. Fake…
