I also love their fabulous commercials (see here) directed by Sofia Coppola.
Their newest spot features none other than the Black Swan herself, Natalie Portman, and the song "Je T'aime...Mois Non Plus" from Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg. Quite a saucy little number indeed.
Watch it below, and try to resist the urge to take a bubble bath while wearing your shades.

It's 52 degrees and sunny in NYC, and I would absolutely say love is in the air.
Wishing everyone lots of hugs, kisses and chocolates on this most romantic of days.
P.S. Doesn't this Rose Martini (spotted on design*sponge) look delicious?
This cocktail would make a wonderfully festive choice for today if you ask me.
Check out the recipe by Jacinta Moore below.
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1 oz. white crème de cacao
1/4 oz. rosewater
small pieces of Turkish delight or rose petals to garnish
1 drop rose food color
1. Fill half of a cocktail shaker with ice!
2. Add your liquids!

This book takes place at an international newspaper based in Rome. The newspaper's somewhat motley crue of characters continue to chug along despite the knowledge that their paper (like most newspapers these days) is no longer what it once was.
Each chapter is told from a different character's point-of-view. As you weave your way through their stories (some incredibly sad, some sweet...most somewhere in between), the reader begins to recognize characters they've spent a chapter getting to know as they pop up in their colleagues' portions of the book.
Through the use of this crazy clever writing device, the author invites you into his characters' minds, only to have them show up later, and through those appearances, change everything you thought you knew about them.
This book came highly recommended by my lovely mother-in-law who always has great taste in reads.

Also wouldn't be opposed to trading in my rusty red lip shade of late for a tube of Mac's Lustre Lipstick in Fresh Brew.

How beautiful is the façade of Miles Redd's Noho townhouse? The cool color, the shutters, the awnings...breathtaking!
I suppose it's the least we could expect from the famed interior designer and creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home.

The above photo was snapped at The Spotted Pig during a recent visit to NYC. Isn't she a dish?
Sending all our love along with a bouquet of pretty flowers
and tasty birthday treats.
How about that Icebox Cake from Magnolia Bakery (recipe here)?
We love you, funny lady!
