  • Ahhhh BRILLIANT. These Accessory Dots are double-stick tape dots that adhere to bare skin and hold clothing in place. They also secure scarves, shoe straps and falling hems. Aaaaaand add to cart. 
  • Gojee is like Pandora, but for discovering recipes.

Closet Confessions: Susie Bubble

My love for well done ads + my love for fashion = ultra-obsession with Bluefly Closet Confessions. This time Bluefly dug inside the closet—or suitcase, rather—of the mega fashion blogger Susie Bubble during New York Fashion Week. Her style is very eclectic (as she notes!). And how adorable is her accent?!

Tolstoy's Ten Rules of Life

Leo Tolstoy's 10 Rules of Life

  1. Get up early (five o’clock)
  2. Go to bed early (nine to ten o’clock)
  3. Eat little and avoid sweets
  4. Try to do everything by yourself
  5. Have a goal for your whole life, a goal for one section of your life, a goal for a shorter period and a goal for the year; a goal for every month, a goal for every week, a goal for every day, a goal for every hour and for evry minute, and sacrifice the lesser goal to the greater
  6. Keep away from women
  7. Kill desire by work
  8. Be good, but try to let no one know it
  9. Always live less expensively than you might
  10. Change nothing in your style of living even if you become ten times richer

Domestic Bliss

I like this. That is all.

Just a little thank you to all the guys who drunkenly come up to me at the bar and tell me they secretly read my blog and they like the music posts. You make my day.

One of thee. BEST. covers I have ever heard. And if you like his voice/style, you'll love the song below.

This song is one of my favorite Kanye's remixed or not, but Ratatat puts a good spin on just about everything.
