Raise your hand if you have given up hope finding cool jeans for under $150? I'm talking about the kind of jeans that actually fit adults, not the tiny ass sizes at Forever 21. Well, put your hands down and look no further because they exist! My boss insisted that she had found super cool, stretchy, ultra-skinny leg, non-crack showing jeans for a mere $65! No, I argued. That simply cannot be. I made an emergency trip downtown to one of my fave stores, Fashionista, just to satisfy my curiosity. Within 20 minutes I walked out with my own pair of Cheap Monday jeans in stone wash grey that fit not unlike comfortable leggings. Some of you might be thinking, yeah, I don't wear that hipster skinny leg style, thanks but no thanks. (Believe me, I know.) However, for some magical and super-stretchy reason, Cheap Monday jeans fit just right. And not in a I-wish-I-were-in-high-school way. For reals.

I have to agree.

Camilla Engman really likes Kelly Lynn Jones' work and so do I.

Digi-Fro Delight!

Have you ever wondered what your pet would look like with a fab hairdo? Well, my dear friend P. (of PFTP) not only knows how to make dreamy lavender pillows but she also does digi-do's for pets of any nice person who asks. She chose the Digi-Fro for our kitties and our friend A's dog, Alfie, as that's her current specialty.
Two of our faves:
The "Geisha" & Moz

The "Pomp-a-Fro"

What do carnivals, Alice in Wonderland and Central Park have in common?

Cute dishware, that's what! Whilst visiting Poppytalk I came upon an intriguing post about $1 Design Finds at Domino which then led me to a bunch of cool things for under a buck like Muji notebooks and the bargain table at Chatsworth then I got sucked further down the rabbit hole to a fantastic site for the NYC store, Fishs Eddy; a place I'm sure all my "East Side" peeps already know about. I arrived looking for $1 Airline flatware which for some reason I convinced myself we really needed, when I happened upon all of the other fabulous collections plus their ongoing Summer Sale and it was sort of all over. (This is what can happen when you're on a budget and bored at work.)

The Real Champion VS. The Devil

If you've seen The King of Kong there's pretty much no question about who's who.
Warning: Might incite great inclination to play Donkey Kong!

Let's Get Physical!

I seem to remember having a sudden urge to start swimming about four years ago at this time. Do the Summer Olympics do this to anyone else but me and G? We decided to take advantage of our local Aquatic Center today and try out something new instead of running (well, G actually runs - I just walk fast). Although I was considerably winded after two laps I found myself loving it way more than walking in the blazing heat. Now I just have 9 years to train to be the next Dara Torres.

Peace be with Me

They say "work when the spirit moves you" (or is that just something my mom says?...) Anyhow, I felt the ambitious spirit of scrapbooking come over me this past week and I've been a girl possessed for the last week. I am however almost done with our 2006 Paris and London trip (I'm pretty sure we took close to a trillion photos) and then I think I'll take a week off. Although I'm doing a very simple 12" x 12" black page format, it's proven expensive with tons of refill pages and adhesive tape refills. G and P both assure me however that it will all be worth it in the end.
