Let's Run Away

To somewhere warm. Somewhere colorful. Somewhere quiet.

If there is chatter around us I would like to not understand a word.

We will sleep in!

Runs are not fueled by frustration. (Maybe it is just a leisurely walk.)

Coffee is made. My eggs are scrambled.

I will indulge in the longest shower. Ever.

There will be naps and to wake up from.
We will be perfectly content with sleep in our eyes.

I'll brush up on my tan.

You will smile ear to ear.

Levi's & Korea National Ballet

This made my morning.

The music composed by Rafael May needs to be in my playlist.

And now all I can think about is dancing through my entire day.

I just might.

We Found Love

Love, Love, LOVE!

Rihanna's performance of We Found Love on the BRITS this past weekend. I can't stop thinking about it.

Song. On. Repeat.

Next Up: Fulfill my life goal of being a back up dancer. Someday. Someday I will be able to shake my ass.

Iris Apfel

This woman is my hero.

If I was in a room with her and Alber Elbaz at the same time my brain would explode from equal parts admiration and cute overload.

Think about it. This:

+ This:

The end.

Interior Inspiration

A few images in my interiors folder that have been whispering to me lately.

The lighting. The A-frame window. The brass furniture tacks. The ocean.

The blanket. The colors. The geometry.

The cage lighting fixture. I love right angles.

The portraits. The bookshelf.

The painting. The birch.

Working on locating all the sources. Feel free to cite any below.
