Here are some of my current faves:
I think it's hard to find stylish (and affordable) boy/neutral clothes for my friends children so I was excited when Stephmodo posted this giveaway from Aven Clothing, the super cool clothing company. I'm loving their striped tshirts. I think I'll be shopping there for my friends and my girls too (who says girls can't wear darker colors?).
Curbed always makes me laugh with their Brokerbabble Glossary. Today's one is about that over used (and seldom understood) phrase: open feel.
I deeply love anything designed by London-based designer Orla Kiely and I've been dying to visit her Soho store. Victoria from SF Girl by Bay went there on a recent visit to NYC and her photographs make me want to check it out even more. What a great place to go to for a housewarming gift or a special treat for yourself. Also, Orla Kiely is doing a collection with Uniqlo. Awesome!
Onion soup is the bomb. Seriously. If you agree, then you'll love this recipe for Vidalia Onion Soup with Wild Rice from Deb at Smitten Kitchen. It's perfect for what promises to be a rainy week here in New York.
I have this ongoing debate with my husband about the brain freeze you get from eating ice cream (or drinking too cold water). He doesn't believe me that simply placing your tongue on the roof of your mouth will make the brain freeze go away (you have to make sure your tongue is warm though). Well I'm happy to link to Faith Durand's post on TheKitchn today talking about the scientific reasons behind the freezing of the soft palate and how you can solve it. I'm so right!! Ah, love it when that happens (the being right part, not the brain freeze part!).
I loved the dark, moody food photography roundup on Miss Moss today. Must learn how to shoot on a black background with this kind of cold dark lighting.
Tomorrow I'm off to a photo shoot for this girl's book. She was the two time winner on the Food Network show Cupcake Wars!! I'm hoping there will be some sweet treats for me to pinch.
