Planning on running the Lyon Steps while in town...looking forward to some cooler runs!

This awesome clock window can be yours for the mere price of 23 million. Obviously, you're buying the entire penthouse, but come on coolest window, EVER! Oh, and you'll be moving to Brooklyn in order to have this amazing clock window.

Random Loves This Week

The things I've enjoyed this week in no particular order...

Pucci Store Installation via Pinterest
My grandmother loved Pucci...and I love the color blocking in the Pucci store.

I dated a guy once who felt like flowers were a waste of money, so he bought me a plant. The plant was dead within 5 days...the same amount of time pretty flowers would have lived...Flowers always make me smile.

I love to sketch and this wall looks like one huge sketch board to me.

No one falls in love by choice,
it is by chance.
No one stays in love by 
it is by work.
And no one falls out of love,
by chance.
It is by choice.

Focus on problems, you'll have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you'll have more opportunities. Dream. Wish. Make it happen

Wall Ideas

Finding possibilities for my living room wall. Although, my place is small this particular wall is large coupled with a high ceiling leaving me with a huge blank space. It has been a storing spot for some of my work from school, but let's be real, time to move on. Lately I've found some things I like and may use. Enjoy~

The yellow looks outstanding here, but that's not the purpose of this pic. I like the variety in the picture frames...color, shape and size.

Black & white is always a winner!
The neutral option for a wall is very soothing. Looks like it's photography from a trip, which is a great way to display fun memories.

This may be a little too predictable for me, but never say never...
I could choose a larger pic then build around it with smaller ones...
I am smitten with this wall. I am in crazy LOVE with the huge white borders around the photos...not saying this would work on my particular wall, but WOW!!!

End of Week

via Pinterest
"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your mind. Put your whole soul to it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."

Well, I'd like to state the miracle of my blog. Drum roll please- I'm now tied with blog year 2007 for amount of posts for the year. This is lame I know however, I really wanted to ditch this blog all together as of last year. I know, I know I don't write anything I post pictures. Details are overrated. I LOVE I continue with my picture love. Enjoy~

I have a thing for shapes. I doodle them non-stop. Bless you if you ever need me to take notes for you you will be inundated with my luscious scribble crowding your notes. No idea why I love these simple things I just do. The above is from artist, Andy Gilmore.
