Month: November 2010

got something for you

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.

hint hint

uh oh, you’re about to be bombarded with more stuff i want. such a greedy person.

i don’t even drink whisky, i just want these because they look amazing.

the same sort of applies to this eau de toilette. it can smell like eau de toilet for all i care (har har har)

really like these engraved goods from in god we trust

these beyond radical sleeping bags!

who doesn’t need a pair of needlepoint fox shoes

banker’s envelope from jack spade

these cushions

these prints (the moon one in particular makes me sigh)

animals boxes – if only i had a mantelpiece to put them on

and anything by eskell

mostly everything discovered thanks to my new best friend, svpply.

a very big house in the country

whenever my friend and i watch a period drama the same discussion will always ensue. she’ll lament that we were born in the wrong era and talk about how happy we’d be if we could live in those times. i’ll try to convince her that we’d be bored out of our minds with just sewing and wandering around in gardens to keep us occupied. she’d rebut with the opinion that if sewing and garden wandering was all we ever knew we’d be content. i’d remind her that you’d have to be (a) rich or (b) married rich to actually enjoy worry free sewing and garden wandering. she’d say that being rich is a positive, not a negative. i’d remind her that we’d have to play lots of card games and that she hated them. she’d remind me i loved card games. and so it went on.

i secretly agreed with her though, living on a country estate in those days must have been pretty damn sweet. IF you were rich and got to picnic all day and other people made your meals for you.

on that note, did anyone watch the latest glee with gwyneth? i thought it very cringey. what happened glee!

airline: identity, design & culture is on my christmas wish list

from utilitarian to luxury, from sensible to chic, the evolution of air travel is one of the most dramatic and fascinating reflections of our changing culture, and it is colorfully and whimsically documented in this unique collection of photographs and entertaining text.

don’t mind if i do.

svpply

i am officially addicted to svpply. it’s like pinterest + ffffound + polyvore all rolled into one. i know boutiques.com just opened with huge fanfare, and i played around with it a little, but it’s not nearly as rad. in fact, i hated all the suggestions that google (sorry, boutiques.com) gave me, and how they categorised my style as casual chic. come on! talk about a cliché guys. svpply on the other hand has me excited about basically every single product that i see on the home page, it’s not just fashion AND they have a super helpful gift guide section.

if you want to see my growing collection just go here, and be sure to sign up + share your link so i can follow you.

walls

i’ve been in my new place for a few weeks and the walls are still bare. this will not do. click on the images for their sources. except for the one that’s uncredited as i found it on a site that doesn’t credit (i’m looking at you tumblr). man! but i still wanted to share it. if […]
