I will be relaxing and reading this gorgeous new book, Bringing Nature Home. About arranging flowers in a way that reflects nature, not an overly formal or forced look, the few pages I have leafed through so far are breathtaking. The featured arrangements are by Nicollette Owen, half of the genius duo behind Brooklyn's Little Flower School. Have a wonderful weekend!
Am very excited about the June Vogue cover featuring Hope, Ryan and Serena. First, because its a nice break from the recent parade of starlets in clothes that make no sense for most occasions. Second, because its a lovely nod to athletes and a different type of physical ideal than we usually see from a fashion magazine. True, it does look more like the cover of Shape than the cover of Vogue, but I think that is progress! (I was a little dissapointed that last year's Olympic issue featured a professional basketball player and Gisele. What exactly does Gisele have to do with the Olympics? And why chose someone from a sport that does not need the Olympics for visibility?) I personally can't wait for the games to start. Goosebumps.
some things i like: really high heels, classic ballet flats, a well wrapped gift, a well dressed man, texture, tonality, dark chocolate, dresses that make me drool, stunning beaches, strong coffee, flowers next to my bed, and a table set for a party.
