Needing + Wanting

I totally want this Orla Kiely bag. Here are my reasons why:

1) the bag I am using has ink that comes off when it gets wet, so I get it on me and my clothes :(

2) I need something eye catching. I tend to have low attention span and will leave things :)

3) I need a bag that you can wipe clean. The hubz and I were eating in the airport the other day and this poor little kid totally dropped the mustard bottle and it went flying everywhere. :(

4) this one is on sale :)


Katie Holmes + J.crew then and now

Anyone remember this? I totally remember getting my j.crew catalog back in the summer of 1998 right before I went back to college. I remember thinking these aren't the regular models, these people are CUTE! And so it came out that there was a new t.v. show called Dawson's Creek. I loved it because I was a big j.crew catalog shopper. You couldn't just go online and order then. You had to call the 1-800 number if you had a credit card. If not, then you had to actually fill out the form and figure out the tax and shipping and send them a freaking check. So all in all it took almost 3 weeks to get your stuff and then hopefully it fit :)

Also, I guess collaborating movies and products is trending again. I mean take Eat, Pray, Love for example, they teamed up with several: FRESH did their own E,P,L senses, HSN did a collection, and Dogeared had a whole jewelry line, plus more. Talk about cross promotion :)

Back to Katie Holmes…so she was in the catalog then and now she is back (+ cast) with her new movie the Romantics. It was just a small few spreads in the catalog, but still such a fun surprise! I dig it! I mean how many freaking cute people can they get in one movie?

Toronto Advertising

Fascinating ad that this Baton Rouge restaurant has put up. A big rack of ribs with a couple making out behind it. Didn't really work on us like I think they mean it to. We did stop, discussed, and then laughed pretty hard. What do you think? Do ribs get you excited? :)

Virginia Johnson

Between matches we were able to make it back downtown and go to the awesome textile designer Virginia Johnson's place. Her place was so nice. All the great brush work, pretty colors, and of course the SALE.

What I bought. This picture doesn't do the camels justice. It's a cream scarf with pink camels. Love it! and then I got the green one for my sis. Also, got a couple of the journals. See the bottom right image from the first picture.

Rogers Cup

First Up! #2 seed Nole and #1 seed Rafa playing dubs. When does that ever happen? Never!


Guess who has been hanging out in Toronto lately?

Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear filming "The Kennedy's" for the History Channel.

Sarah Silverman and Michelle Williams filming “Take this Waltz.”

and last but not least Betsy + John Burgmeier hanging out at the Rogers Cup. Yeah Us!

Saturday Night

This is my Saturday Night and it is enjoyable :)

Gone Fishin’

My friend Rachel showed me how to do a fishtail braid a few years ago and it just never clicked. Then I saw this you tube video from Free People and still it just didn't click because they didn't show the person doing it herself. So then, I went back to Rachel and after another exhibition I think I got it. Well the fundamentals anyway. Mine isn't the coolest YET.
