There it is again in the Monty Python's funny walk!
Oh my gosh...there it is again...on the moon! Love it!
If you loved the concept and then the flikr to follow, you will adore the book What I Wore Today. Gemma Correll's brilliant idea of documenting (through drawing) her daily outfits (and overall mood :) is, as I love to say when it applies, nothing short of brilliant!
Now if only she'd publish her 'daily diaries' ; - )
mocked the totally ridiculous Angelina Jolie and her spectacularly stupid thigh stunt. While Mr. Payne didn't look all that pleased with the antics of his colleagues, I thought it was the single most awesome moment of the show. And for those of you who thought she was joking and mocking herself ... well, I have one word for that attempt at humor...thud.

Noun Project right now, a depository of free visual symbols that have been submitted by designers. If you have a project and you need some well-done graphic symbols, this is definitely the site for you. Did I mention they're all free?

new line which includes a different color palette than the boys line. I'm digging the fact that they're not entirely pandering to stereotypes. (One of the sets is, of course, a bakery.) This tree house is pretty awesome and so is the Invention Workshop which has a young female Lego doll building a robot. Hm, now maybe we can get some gay Legos too (interior designer set, hair salon set, etc.)!

Folks...there is one reason and one reason alone that I haven't posted a single thing on Ooh La La in days...Pinterest. Let's face it, there are only so many hours in a day and only so many of those hours that I feel I can spend online without losing my mind and these days, those very hours are being eaten alive by this new addiction. As I said to JP, I don't think it will last too much longer but if you haven't signed up, you are so missing out. So much fun...so much fabulousness and just so much out there to gaze upon.
If you already know Pinterst then I don't need to say anymore and if you don't...oooh boy...what are you waiting for :)

website for people to send in their design ideas, of which the above image is just one submission. Delta took the hint and has since revamped their ticket design but, of course, didn't do anything even half as cool as some of the designs on Thompson's site. We can dream, though, can't we?

Oh kids...I have to be totally honest with you...at least for the moment, I have a totally new love ... Pinterest. Have you all discovered it yet? Are you on it? I am not even going to go into detail because I know that our stylish and savy readers already know all about it. If you don't, sign up for an account right this second. It is the single most fun thing online EVER. You know those fabulous inspiration boards we've talked about on this blog for years...well, in a nutshell, Pinterest is basically that but online. Sure, it is a huge time suck..mostly because it's just so much fun. I will try never ever to neglect out beloved Ooh La La but right now...Pinterst is tugging at my heart. I haven't figured out how you can find me if you wanted to do that...but I'm out there and I'd love to see you out there too. I just 'pinned' the photo above to my board dedicated to black and white photography...'Boulevard Diederot' by the master Henri Cartier-Bresson.
I've also been thinking a lot about my homeland (well, I'm first generation Greek anyway). I have faith, that in the end, Greece will survive but right now, they are just hurting themselves. So very sad.

article in NY Mag is a must-read for both fans of Nicki Minaj but also for people who are completely confused by the Lady Gagas, Katy Perrys and Nicki Minajs of the world. David Wallace-Wells, the writer of this piece, creates a compelling storyline around why pop music is being dominated by creative and fierce women right now. Phenomenal article. I'm only half-way through this issue but I'm guessing the whole thing is going to be a great read. (Don't miss the Q&A with Nicki Minaj either!)

more pics of the awesome place at nymag.com.) The coolest thing about it is that Archie can add and take away pieces as he wishes, building cool structures on top of the existing wall. Amazing!

Another year and another anniversary for soulrun! So proud of Laura and Joe for the work that they do and the gorgeous products they produce. Here's to many many more years, soulrun...from your #1 fans at Ooh La La Du Jour!
*Check out the lovely slideshow full of great soulrun moments, customers and products :)
|Are you kids all set for 2 nights of saying nothing but 'aaaaaaaaaaaaawww' and 'so cuuuuute'. The Westminster Dog Show begins tonight and really, do I need to say anything else. Let the adorableness begin!|
|Remember Hickory...the beautiful and graceful Scottish Deerhound who won it all in 2011.|
|Random cuteness...love the Frenchies!!|
Cup of Jo had an interesting post on wearing leopard print flats recently. While they are definitely more daring than basic black, I guess, because they are flats and because I am picturing them with an otherwise preppy/conservative outfit, I don't really see them as being such stretch. In fact, I think I might be kind of obsessed with finding the perfect pair right now :)
*These are Kelsi Dagger and were spotted on The Daily Spark
I'm going to start off by saying that if you aren't reading Matchbook's blog The Daily Spark, you most definitely should. I love it almost more than their online mag. That said, they have this feature that I wait patiently for called 'Color Palette of the Week'. How much time do you spend thinking about color palettes? I have to admit, as a black, gray, et al devotee, I don't do it often enough...but then a color combo will catch my eye and I find myself searching for anything and everything in those shades. These are 2 recent combos they posted. Red and cream is a perennial favorite of mine. I'm also mad about red and pale blue. Hoping to see their interpretation of that one some time soon :)
Perusing Matchbook's blog The Daily Spark and came across this beauty by Own Franken. Lovely way to start the day :) Happy Friday to all!
*Title of work...Red Umbrellas at the Eiffel Tower during hailstorm
blog where she interviews fashion insiders. (I have a strange feeling KatieP is going to LOVE this blog.) The top interview on the site right now is with Mickey Boardman, the editorial director of Paper Magazine. Mr. Boardman is one of the coolest people I ever photographed at Fashion Week runway shows and, interestingly, he mentions the clothing designers ThreeasFour right away in his interview - I am IN LOVE with ThreeasFour and will post on them soon, I'm sure. So, discovering this blog is pretty much a love-fest for me. I love everything about it!

As you kids know, I love playing around in the kitchen. I am, by no means, any kind of skilled chef. What I've learned has been self taught and is all trial-and-error and experimentation. I love cookbooks and food magazines and blogs, but most importantly, I really dig a delicious meal. All that said, I've kind of stumbled my way into cooking. I totally love trying new and crazy things but every once in a while, good ole' fashioned comfort fare is all I am about.
Lately, I've been seeing so many recipes, for so many varieties of mac and cheese. I ask you, is there anything more delicious? For me it's all about the cheese because, while some of you out there are chocoholics (very understandable), I am a 100% bonfide, diehard cheese-aholic. I am going to make the dish above tonight...spotted the recipe on Everybody Love Sandwiches.
|This Martha Stewart recipe actually got dubbed the 'Perfect' Baked Macaroni and Cheese!|
|Saveur has a link to some fantastic mac and cheese recipes. I made this one above..it's a classic rendition.|
Greek style mac and cheese. Hello...delicious!
Kids!! Did you know that Starbucks has Valentines Day inspired cups this year! I had no idea this was even in the mix and stumbled into them yesterday at my fave Starbucks shop here on campus. Aren't they adorable?! And for those of you paying attention...the Cup Magic app has been updated to bring this cup to life in the most lovely way :)
Mesmerized by today's post on The Blue Whitetail.
(Just as aside...I remember when Chris took this shot during the summer...thinking to myself what is he seeing? I can't even believe this is that photograph. The way photographers see truly is different than the rest of us)
Some quotes of the morning..Karl Lagerfeld being sadly hilarious, Karl Lagerfeld being totally on point and Anna on the new football/Vogue fans acquired via Madonna's halftime show.
|Karl L ... it's obvious to everyone, isn't it?|
|I don't totally understand the part about the pregnant women but everything else...spot on.|
|Via The Cut...I can only hope Anna is on to something :)|
