obsessed to the maximus...

i love art. i love kids. i love clothes... so why, oh why, oh why didn't i think of this brilliant little company?

well....there are probably several reasons as to why i didn't, but it makes me damn glad that megan & sophie did.

meet mini & maximus... probably the coolest kids line i've ever come across. 

it's inspired by the wild, free and pure hearts that kids explore the world with. 

it's fun. it doesn't take itself to seriously. it champions the creative spirit and takes pride in uniqueness.

if you're not already clicking thru and checking out their collections, then take a few moments to read will make you love them all the more.

curren loves to draw (and hopefully beckett will too) so you can bet your bottom dollar we'll be submitting our scribbles to them soon!

bad ass italian confidence while while showing a little leg during a commute...check

pretty much a perfect recipe for a morning (or afternoon) commute. i bet this little betty was turning heads (and hopefully not causing accidents) as she weaved in and out of traffic in milan.

i didn't plan on going m.i.a. but i did... but now, i'm back to work. and with work comes a little more time to myself... which means more time for pompoms & peonies!

maybe...but better thanks to jimmy

if you haven't heard this song (or if you're denying its power to get ingrained in your head on constant repeat)  then this rendition may be just what you need to start belting a little carly rae from the top of your lungs... 

...i heart me some jimmy fallon and hope you enjoy! 

happy friday!!!

a little summer d.i.y...

with summer (and maternity leave) quickly approaching, i find myself daydreaming more and more of sandy beaches, the smell of suntan lotion and the lazy carefree aloha feeling that summer sparks in me.

in prep for summer (and fat post-baby feet) i recently treated myself to a few new pairs of soludos and got inspired to take on a fun little do-it-yourself-er.

step 1:
purchase pair of white (or any solid color soludo)

step 2: 
be inspired with sharpies, paint, thread or dye and create your very own one-of-a-kind soludo

step 3:
step back, give yourself a pat on the back, and get ready to be the envy of all those who stop to notice your dazzling design

...and if you're really inspired, try making a pair for a friend. they'd make the perfect gift too!

sending all our love...

the untimely death of adam yauch had a pretty profound impact on just about anyone who grew up listening to the beastie boys drop their beats since the early 80's.

my husband was sooooooooo bummed. so bummed that he told me he hoped that every band having a concert that night did some sort of tribute to the beastie boys.

well, just so happens that chris martin must have picked up on my husband's request and belted out this familiar lil' diddy to his friday night crowd under the stars and the magic of the hollywood bowl...

hot & bothered...

if you haven't heard whispers (or been whispered to) about the 50 shades of grey trilogy, then you've probably been living under a rock. 

e.l.james's series is the latest trilogy of page turners that's keeping ladies up at night because they can't.get.enough.

i've heard all about the book from quite an astonishing amount of people and i figure it's about time i see what all the hoopla is about.  and from what i hear... the hoopla has a lot to do with hot & heavy detailed sex scenes complete with nasty bits, s&m & the like all wrapped into a story about innocence and romance. 

the effect this book has had on the ladies i've talked to is quite funny. 

everyone whispers like it might be wrong to be reading it... and NO ONE can talk about this book without getting flush in the face, a tad hot & bothered or stuttering a bit. 

pretty amazing if you ask me.

the whole thing has me giggling to myself because if there are THIS MANY LADIES running around ready to hop between the sheets and get their nittiest grittiest groove on... there MUST BE a ton of VERY HAPPY & SATISFIED men, husbands, fathers, lovers, etc. thanking god that e.l.james got these puppies published. 

and since these books seem to be sweeping their way across the states, it looks like there should be a lot of happy, whistling, smiling people moving about their day.

i just downloaded the first book to my kindle...not sure what i'm getting into but this should be fun.

four-eyes has never been so cool...

as a kid, being told you need to wear glasses must be pretty deflating for that little budding ego.  

we all know kids can be cruel and that a pair of glasses floating on the rim of a child's nose is just one more piece of ammo for someone to fire away at an innocent wee-one.

well... very french gangsters is single-handidly out to change that. 

this french company must be owned by a group of kids, who as children, wore glasses... and now that they're all growns up, got together and decided that if they had a say in the matter glasses would be made cool and that kids who needed glasses would become the envy of the rest of their peers.

get a closer look here and tell me you don't agree!
