the san diego chocolate gods shined down yesterday.  i was out in pittsburgh’s strip district.  and inside the cutest shop was my favorite chocolate that used to only be blocks away, eclipse chocolate!  crazy flavors like gingerbread crumb, mango masala, and sweet basil mint, matched with sea salt – yum! 

holy shitake.

only in western pennyslvania can you be on your way to a cherry orchard, when you get stopped in your tracks by the vintage landmind of your dreams. we seriously almost crashed when i yelled, STOP!  in prep for the upcoming table decor shoot, this was fate at it’s best.  20 bucks will buy you this.

life has changed.  somewhere between deciding to take a breath of fresh air and sadly leave san diego for austin, my car skipped across both and headed east.  for now, and depending on the day, the suitcase calls pittsburgh and new york city home.  ever read “city mouse and country mouse”? well that’s about where i’m at. making the best of this little adventure; the paint brushes have been unpacked, the canvas is prepped, and below are some of the modern birds that are providing inspiration.

time flies when you’re having fun, that’s for sure.  it’s amazing how when you decide to move, all of a sudden every minute has to be filled and more importantly spent with people you are going to miss so dearly.  i have some of the most beautiful friends, and these lovely moments were styled by yours truly and captured by pal and photographer amy millard, during one of the best days ever. 

more to come soon {love you all}.

oh sweet goodness.

so don’t get me wrong, i still love you toms, but i have my eye on someone new.  it might be the wishful ballerina in me that makes these vegan friendly flats so lovely.

you ask an artist or any creative person what color they would be in the box, and you automatically get a pause.  i don’t know, i would be a lot of colors.  i said yellow when i was a little girl, then purple, green, and now i’ve matured to olive green.  but the truth, is that i love combinations right now, espcially the one below.

+ dolci odille.

+ soho mode.
