Bisou Bisou

HELLO!!! First of all, I'm sorry to have been away for so long. This past summer was absolutely crazy... I was dealing with an overwhelming amount of work and some personal issues that quite frankly left me uninspired. I finally feel like I'm able to come up for some air and share some inspirational gems. While I can't promise I'll be able to keep up with a regular schedule, I can promise not to have another 3 month black-out period. Now for the fun stuff...

I've been loving all this little kissy lips I've seen around lately. Some for the home, some for fashion, and all equally fabulous.

De Farine & d'eau Fraîche

I just got back from my latest trip to Montreal, where I had the best time. Fresh maple syrup tasting, a day at the water park, and fabulous vintage shopping were just a few of the activities I enjoyed in the perfect summer weather. Most of all, I was beyond excited to discover a secret little gem of a street filled with vintage treasures. One of which I just could not pass up... but more on that later. While we were shopping I built up quite an appetite and thankfully we stumbled upon this sweet little restaurant that I just had to share, De Farine et d'eau Fraîche. Everything was so fresh and delicious... the salads, the brownies, and salted caramel were perfection.

{J.Marx Atelier} SHOEDAZZLE

You may remember this post I did a while back of a mood board for a project I was working on called Shoedazzle. Well, it's finally coming together and there are just a few minor touches left so I thought I would share a sneak peek of the entry lobby. I LOVE the way it turned out, full of pops of pink, neon signage, and some fabulous shoes. That back mural was custom painted by Jennifer Rae Ochs, a fabulous local artist. I can't wait to share more, but for now here's just a taste of what's to come, enjoy.

A Touch of Velvet

I recently stumbled upon these AMAZING velvet bow ties and I thought they were way too fabulous not to share. Boutaugh has the most wonderful little pieces of neck decor for men that I've seen in a while. I'd love to own a few of these to throw on a blazer or in my hair.

Boqueria

While I was in New York last week for business I had a night off to meet up with a good friend who moved out there a few years ago. Neither of us had a strong opinion on where to eat, but I was staying in Soho so we figured we would just walk around and eventually find something... and boy did we ever! We had the absolute pleasure of eating at Boqueria, a Spanish Tapas restaurant. My mouth is still watering thinking about those tasty tapas... especially the Patatas Bravas and the Churros con Chocolate. My friend and I spent almost 3 hours enjoying almost everything on the menu. If you're in or around the city I highly recommend a trip over there. 

Have a great weekend!

Happy 4th!

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely holiday. While I'm not in the USA to celebrate I'm still dreaming of a lovely beach day filled with hotdogs, watermelon, and fireworks. Happy 4th of July!!!

A Visit North

So, I realize I've been a busy bee lately with an insane travel schedule... but I just left for my final trip planned for the summer, Montreal. This trip is purely for pleasure, and boy do I need it. I'm taking a little vacation to visit some friends and family and I can't wait to relax and enjoy all of what this amazing city has to offer, especially the smoked meat and bagels. 

I love these vintage Canadian tourism ads, and thought they would be a perfect intro to my week away. By the way I hope you enjoyed a Happy Canada Day yesterday, I know I sure did!
