i saw this DIY and it immediately reminded me of free people- fabric covered hangers!  i have a bunch of plain old wire hangers in my closet and i think they are in need of a makeover.  all you need is fabric – this would be a great way to reuse old free people bags! – and glue.

start by taping the starting point of the fabric to the hanger, and then proceed to wrap the fabric around the hanger.  when you have covered the hanger, put a dab of glue on the end of the fabric and you’re done!

it’s one of those gray, rainy days in philly where you just want to curl up under the covers and sleep all day.

if only i was here…


…at the w retreat and spa in vieques, puerto rico.  the rest of the decor doesn’t look too shabby, but it’s those rainbow chairs that got me.

I went here on my previous spring break and it is even better than it looks! Take a week off and go there!!! You will not regret it

Post image for bouncing round the room

last week i was passing by the area where our graphic designers and office coordinator sit…and something was different. their office chairs had been replaced by large exercise balls! hmmm…what’s this all about guys?

“we got them to strengthen our cores! exercise balls are the new thing.”

so have you noticed a change? do they work?

“yes! when you wake up you feel like you did crunches the day before.”

“it keeps you moving throughout the day so you get a little workout. and we have a mid afternoon workout session.”

“plus they keep you from getting sleepy sitting at your desk!”


what do other people think about your balls?

“they’re jealous! everyone wants them now.”


“the bouncing is good for your mental state too…you feel like a little kid!”

Post image for Look of the moment

Isabel Lucas rocked out in LA in this adorable little number, there’s something very Annie Hall going on here. I love that she’s added quirky little stripey socks into the mix and that her hair and make up is undone.Cute as a button. I think I might be wearing this look going into Fall.

i’m not sure what’s better, their performance of “airplanes” or the guy who chases down a robber to get a girl’s purse back.

Post image for paint it colorful






i just noticed that lately i’ve been really drawn to face and bodypaint.  i keep saving photos of it. i love how it makes such a bold, colorful statement… but i’m not sure when or if i’d ever be able to pull this off…  if i was going to burning man i would definitely be rocking some paint.  what do you guys think?

I love it! This is pretty much my moto!! Why spend so much time being angry and sad, just act happy and then you'll be happy and you'll live a better life!
ariana -Aug 16, 2010, 5:09PM
so true... i was just talking to a friend about this... if we spent 365 days a year being bothered by the things we hate, we would end up living in a sad sad world full of angry people. it is far greater for all and for oneself to give love and in the end we encounter happier people along the way... and life is that much greater. :)
