While these images kinda speak for themselves, I’d really love to be able to read Skona Hem for myself and soak in all the probably-amazing design advice hiding in its impenetrable-to-me pages.

Hello, perfect bathroom!

And if these guys below could just send me all their furniture, I’d be forever thankful…


Is two too many?

A great moral dilemma has just presented itself – what do you do when you’ve already acquired something of a particular nature, say, a very specific type of shoe, and then weeks and weeks later, you perhaps find a better iteration? Do you accept that you’ve already filled this need and pass up the newer finding? Do you recklessly purchase the new ones and return the old ones, secretly wondering if you really loved the first ones all along and were only tempted by the grass-is-greener idealism of the second pair? Are two pairs of high heeled desert boots one pair too many??

Yes, they’re from Clarks. And YES, I’ve already bought a pair of shoes exactly like this from somewhere else. I think I like these better. Ach!

P.S. For the record, I do think about things besides shoes and outerwear and handbags. Just not when its this hot out.

Yes, please!

I know its 1000 degrees out, but can we pause for a moment and look to the frosty future and contemplate how perfect this coat is?

Perfect except for the price tag, that is…

Calgon, take me away!

Just a smidge over 3 weeks until I leave for vacation!!

I cannot wait to be lounging on the porch of one of these little cabins in Bar Harbor, Maine, staring out at the bay, only trying to decide between swimming and eating lunch.
