Scenes from Monday’s Inauguration over on Jezebel.
Daring to go dark on the lipstick front, over on Cup of Jo.
As I’ve shared before, I have a bit of a garland obsession. Chock it up to my Waldorf childhood or just to the fact that I love flowers. Design*Sponge shared a gorgeous wintry floral head wreath from The Ladies of Forêt that I’m aching to replicate.
More radness from Miss Moss: 2013 calendars. I have yet to invest in a new one (last year I went for a Nikki McClure, and I might just do it again because her work is so darn cool), but these two from spreadthelove and prismaticprintshop, respectively, are right up my alley.
This Paris vs. New York video by Tony Miotto! (via fubiz)
These drawing by Nigel Peake for Dowling | Duncan. See more of his beautiful work here.
The Super Couples tumblr blog is amazing! Charlie (Day) & the Waitress (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) and Mac (Rob McElhenney) & Dee (Kaitlin Olson)! Oh how I love you, It’s Always Sunny!
Who runs the world? Girls. GIRLS! Say what you will about the new HBO show GIRLS (and for the record I agree, though you should listen to Lena Dunham on Fresh Air), it makes me LOL a lot. And Sunday’s season finale was no exception.
This lady knows how to mix her stuff! Mmm mmm good.
Discovered Broad City this week (thank you Design*Sponge!) and dang are these ladies fine! A post featuring my favorite episodes will no doubt make an appearance soon. Want to laugh immediately? Watch this video and check out this picture.
The new Terrain store in Westport, CT looks b-e-a-utiful! My college graduation dinner last year was spent at the Terrain at Styer’s Garden Café in Glenn Mills, PA. It was one of the most beautiful dining experiences I’ve ever had. Which reminds me, I would love to go back before I leave the East Coast. Kelly, you down? (via Andrew+Carissa)
Maurice Sendak, beloved author of Where the Wild Things Are, passed away last week. If you live near my neck of the woods, make sure to stop by the Rosenbach Museum & Library to see the Sendak collection housed there. Also, if you haven’t yet watched it, check out Stephen Colbert’s interview with Sendak from back in January. Here are parts one and two (via Colossal). Simply fabulous.
These kick-a$$ National Park stamps by Valerie Jar (check out her blog Carnival for awesome sauce design inspiration!) for the new National Parks iPhone app by National Geographic (app design credits go to Rally Interactive) (via Design Work Life). Long long ago I had “Jr. Ranger” pins from six of the parks listed below. I want to collect them all!
I love these two images from Natalie Off Duty. Definitely how I feel right now: sleepy and in need of a good stretch.
Resist dying tutorial over on A Beautiful Mess Blog.
Teeny tiny food has never looked so good! “Tel Aviv-based artist Shay Aaron constructs incredible miniaturized food sculptures at 1:12 scale.” Check out more photos on Flickr and view Shay’s extensive mini food jewelry collection on Etsy. These fried egg studs are right up my alley.
A natural egg coloring (onion skins people!) tutorial from Ulrika Kestere over on Ulicam. I love her use of feathers and flowers and am certainly inspired to make some of my own!
The Mes Dames spring 2012 lookbook is gorgeous and not just because of the clothes! I love the vintage quality of the shots and the beautiful leafy garden in which the models are set.
I learned about Dawn Tan not too long ago and was reintroduced to her work this week. Her watercolor food illustrations make my stomach rumble!
These paper flowers by Frances & Francis are so elegant!
As you may know, I’m a huge house porn fan and this kitchen/dining room is making me go bananas! First off, that table with benches is my dream table with benches! Second, what a lovely idea to have a huge leafy branch situated on your mantel. I think my Mom would like this. See more of this house over at Keke and learn how to make what looks like a scrumdidliumptious meaty paella (that serves 20+!!)!
