Cupcake Bakeshop

There are days, and days... today I'm not in a very art, graphic, or designed mood. I'm into more soothing things. . . for that I found that cupcakes do well, I even don't have to eat them, just watching works. Right me if I'm wrong. There is a whole cupcake revolution lately, and there are zillion of pictures and receipes. A good one that I found is
Cupcake Bakeshop check it out, you'll see it does wonders to slow mornings at work.

gloss, gloss, gloss....

Why is that the lip glosses are taking over, or is it just me??? Go ahead, you are allowed, and take a look inside my purse, you will find, a clear-minty one, a soft pink, a vanilla scented, and a pretty case with 4 different shades, scents and smells; at home, I have many more... and the worst thing, I'm still getting more!!!! (By the way, you should stop at bath&body if you are like me... you'll enjoy the visit.)

I just can't resist, now they are making them so little, pretty, and heavenly scented... Go and take a look at this findings,
(click here) they promise to keep my morning entertained (well, besides my office work).

P.S. hmm... I was forgetting... there's another one I got last week, pretty crystal clear little cube... brown sugar, delightful.

Rules for life, laws of nature, important things to remember...

You can call them however you like, but they are really good, and proved to be right.
Good job to whomever write them down.

"Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go to ... Italy or France..."

"Well behaved women rarely make history."

"Men are like a fine wine. They start out like grapes.
It's our job to stomp on them until they mature into something you would have dinner with."

"I want to be barbie - that bitch has everything."

"Put your big girl panties on and deal with it."

"If the shoe fits, buy one in every color. "

"I know I'm in my own world; but it's okay, they know me here."

"What part of princess don't you understand."

"Inside me is a thin woman screaming to get out... I can usually keep the bitch quiet with chocolate."

"She with the most shoes wins."

"If you obey all the rules, you'll miss all the fun."

"Stop me before I volunteer again."

"I take life with a grain of salt, a wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila."

"Money is the root of all evil, so I try to spend it before it corrupts me."

"My greatest fear is that there is no PMS and this is my personality."

Finding inspiration

After reading the bio of Florence Broadhurst, a european, world-renowned wallpaper and textile designer from the 30's. -- Well, that's not the whole story. And it deserves to be told even in at least a couple of lines --She started as a singer, founded an art academy, got married, and acquired a dress shop on London, by the 60's she founded the company for which she became famous with, selling (handprinted) wallpapers, that with time and after her tragic death, it became Signature Prints... sort of (to read the whole and really accurate story go to The Opulent Prints of Florence Broadhurst, at Designboom)

Her designs have inspired even fashion designers. They are very classic and elegant. There are many inspiring collections, prints, wallpapers, limited edition art, and furnishing.

Photojojo >> Panographies

Amazing photography finding! As recently posted on one of my daily readings, Love Made Visible; Photojojo, a site devoted "to use your photos to their best advantage" posted a tutorial on Panographies, wide-angle pictures composed of several individual photos manually stitched together. So that you picture can capture everything you can see, but can't fit in one shot. A must try, one more thing on my to do list for the weekend.

Book craving

A new addition to my wishlist! ... DailyCandy A to Z has plenty of deep thoughts and frivolous tips on how to make peace with your vices, look better (than your friends), pinch pennies (or splurge shamelessly), and do unto others (or do your ex-boyfriend). Isn't it tempting? besides, the illustrations are fantastic. And if it comes like the DailyCandy emails, I think I'll love it.

Def latter today I'll stop by at Amazon, because there is this other book that has been on my mind for a couple of days.
D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself by Ellen Lupton "This book is for people from all walks of life who want to publish words, images, and ideas on paper, on t-shirts, on the Web" Is good to have many design references, different perspectives, seems interesting, still wanna check the reviews though.

Black label tanks

Mary Philliphs Designs, has a great collection of tanks, (there's also tees version) as they say, has "the right dose of attitude". I love them all.

Blog buttons

As you know, I'm still learning how to deal with html, but there is nice people that make things easier.
I couple of weeks ago, I found these well designed buttons; by that time, I had a blog that didn't need html, so those pretty things were not available for me. Now, they are!!! There are custom, standard, and free buttons. I used one to link to my email, and here is theirs, you must visit them, you will find amazing designs.

Anthropologie Pillows

I don't know if the time is affecting my system or what is it. I was at the antropologie site, and found these pillows, I was tryining to keep looking at clothes, or jewelry...(generally, i love to stop a this site, the place has amazing stuff)... or something besides beddings and pillows but that strange force was winning over me. Maybe because the time here is a bit cloudy, I'm done with everything for today, I'm starving and there are still 5 long hideous hours ahead of me. The reason still goes beyond my knowledge, but the pillows are fantastic, the colors, the patterns, and designs. (Also, the duvets uffffffffff, speechless).
