I was in invited this past weekend by a friend to stay at his house in Southhampton, and now I am all inspired to get domestic. Him and his boyfriend made delicious food, had a beautiful garden, and don't get me started on the cottage. I didn't want to leave the pool in the yard. At night after dinner I came across Slim Aaron's Poolside book, and am kind of obsessed with the imagery. Like the forward mentions, the pictures were taken in a time when people didn't have a care in the world, and tanning, drinking, and smoking came with no health warnings, nor did spontaneous romantic rendevous. Even if these people did have a care in the world, Aarons did a good job at hiding that from his lense. The women were so glamorous, fully made up to lounge at the pool, with their hair all done up and their giant sunglasses and scarves on their heads. I love it!!

Alphabet my Tim Fishlock. Another of those I-wish-I-would've-thought-of-that moments.

This Valentino striped bow clutch could add a nice twist to a formal occasion. You know how much I love all things Beetlejuice ;)

A look from Mayle's F/W 2008 collection inspired by the writings of Jeanne Moreau. Love the Japanese* prints and tropical colors for a winter collection.
*Speaking of which, I am excited to tell that I will be going to Asia with my parents end of August for 3 weeks! It will be my first time and would love to hear recommendations of things to see and do in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Singapore.

My sister has had this watch for a while, and while I don't think this picture does it justice and I'm not a huge Michael Kors fan, it looks spectacular on. It looks great with all black or white...the oversized all gold one is really nice too. You can get them on the Kors website.

I just spent a few days in Bimini, a small island in the Bahamas, with my family and got some much needed sun. To keep me entertained I picked up this book by our friend Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen. Lessons of a Lipstick Queen is the story of how she began her lipstick company at the age of 18, and how you can turn your idea into a business. Her story is very inspirational, and pretty much she breaks down everything you need to know (even the technical stuff) about what to do with your ideas. I called my best friend in Malaysia after reading the first chapter and told her to go order it!
