J. Crew :: Fall Window Display

Fall is here!  At least in New England we have fall weather, perfect for jackets and sweaters, and the leaves are starting to change colors!  There is very little that makes me this happy about any other season.

I love the gold leaves of this J. Crew window display.  They didn't photograph as well as I would have liked {I was in a different mall than normal during daylight hours, and I'm pretty sure Paul Blart fell out of one of those skylights} but it's pretty nonetheless.

Carpet Shopping

Recently I was carpet shopping at a local showroom and spotted this cutely patterned, nicely textured carpet.  It was much too rough of a wool to use in a place where bare feet are present but I do love the warm colors and the pattern.

Confession :: I'm a Skin Care Product Sample Hoarder

It's become evident lately, as I try to get rid of things I don't use or want in general, that I might have a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to skincare samples.  It didn't seem like I had that many, but for someone who believes using mascara and concealer is sometimes too many steps {can't someone develop a mascara that will draw attention away from the giant purple bruises under my eyes?}, what I have is a bit excessive.

What shows in this photo is deceptive.  It's a deep bowl.

Yikes!  That's a lot of stuff!

I've been doing a bit of research lately to see what I can do to take better care of my skin and maybe keep the wrinkles at bay for as long as possible.  As part of this, I'm getting rid of things I won't use and things that I don't like.  Those nail polishes will be going straight to my nieces, they'll be thrilled and I can stick to the three colors I like.  I also spy a few other items that will disappear quickly.

Some of the samples I'm really excited for so I'll share the winners and losers of the bunch!

I have also ordered some skin care products to add to my all natural {barely any ingredient} face wash and moisturizer so I'm excited to try them out when they arrive in a few weeks!

Louis Vuitton :: Spring LV Window Display

I do realize it is now officially fall, but this window display from Louis Vuitton is really seasonless {well, maybe if you pay attention to their handbags you may notice}. 

I love the graphic and metallic nature of these letters.  That's something Louis Vuitton always has a ton of  in their windows - amazingly shiny things.

If you look at the text on the 'L' photo you will see the reference to scanning something to get exclusive content in their 'application'.  I can't stop giggling over this because it took me forever to realize they mean their app!  Am I the only one finding this hilarious?

Pavement Coffee :: Part Two

I love when my work takes me close to my favorite coffee shops because coffee makes me happy.  The other week I had to go to a building right next to a coffee shop I used to go to regularly and I've also posted about.

It's been a while though.  The coffee wasn't as good as I remembered it, and they no longer honor the coffee buying card, but I did like the interior still with the wood and tiny tile floor.  So that was worth the trip. 

The next time I'm in that area I can try a new place and maybe I'll even find a new favorite shop!

Out & About :: Lovely Day

I love the floor at Lovely Day in Nolita and felt less creepy taking a picture of the floor in the bathroom than I did sitting at my seat at the bar.  I've taken pictures of bathrooms before so this bathroom floor photo is par for the course.  It's seen better days, but I'm totally in love with the pattern.

One Mission Accomplished

Lately I've been trying to finish all those half-finished projects I have lying around the house {and other people's houses} forever.  One of those projects was intended to be a birthday present for my 2012.  I bought the parts years ago and was ready to go but, let's be honest, I didn't know how to wire a lamp.  Luckily the Rotary Club around here has a free clinic where you take your broken things {or miserable failures of DIY projects in my case} to them and they help you fix it up.

I really love the vintage plug, the colorful cord, and the paddle thumb turn it has.  It's so much better than the cheap-looking gold pieces and transparent plug that it had before.

So, one down 7,301 to go!
