my greatest loves are my husband, family and friends… i also love penguins and butterflies! my favorite place in the world is the great barrier reef in austrailia. i went there on my honeymoon and had the most amazing time! the weather, the water and the landscape were unforgettable. i love to shop and walk around NYC, people watch, eat at new restaurants, spend time with friends and hang out with my family in florida. on a typical day off i’ll exercise, walk around the city and explore new places, spend time in central park, catch up on tv from the week and go out to a fun dinner with friends!

the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar isn't the original whole foods. the original (which is now Cheapo Discs) was built in 1980 on lamar and 11th. The store flooded in 1991, and in the late 90's they built another location which is now book people, rei, and anthropologie. in 2005, the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar was built, which is the biggest whole foods in the world.

tomorrow is super adoption day at the piazza at schmidts! this will be the largest adoption event in philadelphia history, plus there will be live music, food and drinks, special guests, shopping, vendors, crafters and more.  the event is organized by philly no kill, an amazing organization with the goal of making philadelphia a city where all healthy and treatable animals are saved.  there are so many animals in need of homes so stop by tomorrow between 10 and 4 and you may walk away with a new best friend :)

my greatest loves are my family and good friends – but i also love rice, japanese restaurants and flip flops (slippers)! my favorite place in the world is probably the beach, the couch with my brother, or my bed. i love sleep, even though i don’t always get a lot! a big hobby of mine is definitely sports. i was always a bit of a jock, playing my whole life and through college. my family has always been pretty athletic.   right now i’m still living at home and enjoying my relaxing saturdays! on a typical day off i’ll sleep in, mostly spend the day with my little cousins that are the cutest, funniest kids in the world (that ranges from playing pretty pretty princess to kickball). end the day with a movie, a beer and some laughs…i call that a good day! i’m inspired on a daily basis by my mood. depending on how i’m feeling on a certain day is what probably makes me notice certain things i might not on another day.  also just working here is very inspirational – everyone’s tastes are so different and exciting to see!

literally, it’s pretty wild!  scientists have recently discovered a rare type of bee that makes its nest out of flower petals in a method similar to papier-mâché! the result is so beautiful – i would love to see one in real life…but since that probably won’t happen maybe i’ll collect some petals and try to recreate my own little papier-mâché project.  who knew bees could be such talented artists?! :)

i saw this studio on design sponge and i had to share, it is so beautiful! i love the framed chalkboard and all the different prints and patterns on the wall in the last photo… reminds me very much of free people. i’ve been really into the mixed prints right now, probably as a result of all the inspiration on our website but it hadn’t occurred to me to try it in my home. i love how it looks and it’s a great way to make a somewhat empty space (like my apartment- i am seriously lacking in furniture) and make it feel more busy and full.

this is such an awesome idea – one of our designers is heading to the sled island music and film festival in calgary, which takes place june 30 – july 3. to prepare for her trip she is compiling all sorts of information in a little composition book that she brought over to show us the other day -  it’s amazing! she cut out and pasted images and hand wrote information about the festival lineup, bars, restaurants and shopping in calgary – even interviews with calgary designers that she has printed out!

i think it’s such a creative way to prepare for and then document a trip – in fact it has inspired us to do something similar for bonnaroo :) we’ll take a closer look at the contents of her journal when the festival approaches, but for now i wanted to share the idea because i thought it was so cool. and all you need is a journal, scissors and glue sticks!

Thanks for the suggestion! Definitely will try check them out! :)

Calgary is a very cool town, with the best shopping in Alberta! While you are there make sure you check out Kensington area! It has some really neat stores and you must make a stop at "Crave" cupcakes bakery located in the Kengsington area! Also, 17th Ave. has some really neat clothing stores and the best shoe store called "Gravity Pope!" Enjoy your stay!

my greatest loves are my boyfriend, my mom and dexter terrier – one of my hobbies is terrier care and maintenance! i also love voraciously reading books about assorted topics. lately i have been obsessed with henry VIII and his various wives and children. cooking delicious food, watching law and order and going to scooter rallies are some of my other hobbies. on a typical day off i’ll be doing one of those things- if i am feeling lazy, then watching any incarnation of law and order on the couch. if i am feeling spry… hanging out with friends or family, wandering around south philly…having adventures! one of my favorite places is the beach – my secret dream is to be an old lady in a mumu on the jersey shore. i like music from hip hop to riot girl to metal to old reggae and soul. some favs are desmond dekker, bikini kill, new york dolls, the modern lovers, bratmobile, skatalites, biggie smalls, lil kim, toots and the maytals, peaches, guns n roses, the smiths, sean paul, the pogues, the clash, stevie wonder, alton ellis, john holt… my ipod is a hot mess!
