Frenchy Caramel, Fried Chicken... And Wine

Barnier Salt Butter Caramel Lollipops. Yeah, they exist.

Best part is that I picked them up at a wine shop that also sold... fried chicken.

If you live in DC, Cork Market does a summer dinner right.

Stripe The House...

If you follow me on Pinterest... you probably know I have a thing for black and white when it comes to the home.

These two pics have been filed away into my "Someday Stripes" file.

Friendship Conference Call...

Do you have those friends who've known you forever... and when you get together, nothing really changes?

I'm lucky enough to have two beautiful friends in my life who've known me since kindergarten! And when I am around them, it is like we're getting ready for prom all over again. Silly doesn't begin to cover it... and we laugh more than we speak.

With the three of us living in DC, NYC, and Phoenix... we don't get to see each other as much as we all would like... but tonight we successfully had our first conference call for the three of us to catch up. And the call was a ball!

I can't wait for our next phone date. I'm curious, how do you stay in touch with your best buds?

Flying the Unruly Skies...

Did you see the story about the movie producer on a cross-county flight with an unruly passenger? It is insane and incredible to think about... and worth reading.

The most memorable line, "I used to be a william morris agent and I've dealt with difficult people before and really this guy wasn't that difficult."

Like I said, worth reading.

Genius in a Cup...

I know... it is awesome.

Vino2Go seems like perfect gear to transition from beach cocktails to tailgates.

Calgon, Take Me Away...

Blast from the past, no?

I love taking baths to relax, albeit not in a champagne glass. I think the tub below may be more my speed.

Prippy Art... Francesco Clemente

I first fell in love with Francesco Clemente's art after seeing his work showcased in the 1998 film, "Great Expectation." He did all of the gorgeous art for the Finn character, if you remember.

His portraits are unique and unconventionally beautiful. I love dreamy mix of color. Someday I hope to see one of his shows in person.

And then there is the dream of someday having a portrait done by any of the many artists who I adore. A nice dream, right?

Happy Birthday... From One Tall Lady to Another

"Being tall is an advantage, especially in business. People will always remember you. And if you're in a crowd, you'll always have some clean air to breathe." - Julia Child

Who's Calling... Garance Dore

I need an iPhone case... badly! Since I bought my phone, I've used a heavy duty case that made me look like I was in a combat zone looking to be extracted...

Even though this Garance Dore for Kate Spade isn't 100% my style, I love it anyway!

Bad Day... Shoes

I actually had a lovely day today... even if I worked through the weekend and have been pulling late nights for the past few days.

But there are some days that are bad news... and I think I need shoes for such stinkers.

Thankfully, Stubbs and Wootton is there for me.

Salty Swedish... Soap

I picked up Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap for the husband.

He loves the soap. And I love absolutely everything about the packaging.

Oxford Comma... And Strippers

I cannot stop laughing at this drawing! My job involves a ton of writing, so it's nice to find some humor in the details.
