CUTE // I'm pretty sure seeing this bowl every morning would put a smile on my face even without my cuppa coffee. 

MODERN // It's oversized, in the perfect shade of light grey, and the price is right.  Need I say more?

NOM // Tried Coltivare for the first time this weekend, and I was quite impressed.  A charming, modern rustic atmosphere with delicious gourmet pizzas and wonderful small plates.  This charred octopus and local melon dish was almost too pretty to eat.  Almost.

CUTE // For those moments when you wondered what it'd be like to have a bunch of tiny parrots on your head.

MODERN // These sleek loafers are on my Wishlist.  Looks like they're on everybody else's too.  : /

NOM // This is the result of Bryan accidentally defrosting all of our catfish- a delicious and easy etoufee-like dish!  To save some bucks, I bought frozen salad shrimp and just defrosted the bag.  Bon appetit!

It's still hot here in Houston despite the random cold front teasing its way through once every two weeks.  So most of my outfits have been soft tees and shorts.  I know boots aren't really summer wear but for me, they're a year-round staple. Lesson learned with white boots: they're fab but scuff up almost immediately.

Douglas and Bec


Trying to move on from Ikea furniture is no easy task especially when you love Scandinavian simplicity.  As a compromise, I like to venture out and find furniture in the same vein but with a little more of that "je ne sais quoi." Douglas and Bec, a family-run New Zealand company, embodies everything I find appealing about the style- light woods, sleek silhouettes, and a subtle hint of metal.  All furniture is handmade by Douglas, the designer's father.
