Fashion Friday: Sponsor Welcome- Tapered Collection

As of late I’ve been super frustrated buying t-shirts. It seems like every good looking one is made of linen- which is ridiculous because who has time to dry clean or hand wash a flipping t-shirt? Every time I’ve bought one of them I’ve mistakenly put it in the washer and dryer (because, you know, it’s a t-shirt amongst lots of other t-shirts) and it inevitably comes out a size more appropriate for Henry. There goes another $45. Cotton tees seem to be so see through you need to be okay with exposing your bra or need to wear a cami underneath- defeating the purpose of a t-shirt! So when I was sent a sample of a new tee brand, Tapered Collection, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted.

The Wallpapers of Marthe Armitage

I saw a little story is this weekend’s WSJ Magazine about a wonderful English wallpaper artist, Marthe Armitage , who has a cool collaboration with Jo Malone  coming out this summer.  The best part? Martha is 86.  And has only really gained notoriety in the last 10 years!  Talk about an inspiration for never giving up on doing the thing you love most, you never know when you wills trike it hot!  Her papers are still produced by her and her daughter in her studio in England (and some are now available digitally printed, all through historical wallpaper dealers Hamilton Weston).

LINDSEY’S KITCHEN: THE FINAL REVEAL!

Hi again EOS readers! I’m super excited to finally share our finished kitchen with you guys. It took a little longer than expected (not surprising for any renovation – even less so when you’re doing the work yourselves) but Eric and I are really happy with the results. We hope you like it too!

As a reminder, here’s what the kitchen looked like when we bought the house:

Sweet Inspiration

I am a frustrated baker at heart. I have always LOVED baking, and wish I could translate my creativity and art skills into amazing cakes. Alas, I do not have the time- and when I do, I often get so frustrated by working with icing that I give up and just eat the hot mess I’ve created. So I am in awe with the work of baker/artist/pastry wizard Alana Jones-Mann in Los Angeles.  She makes such incredible cakes and bakes goods- many with clear influences from the design world! Here are a few of my favorites paired with interior compliments!

Can yuo EVEN with this palm leaf wallpaper cake? Because I can’t.
