I’m loving this short video on revolutions.
Are videos the new infographics?

Faux-Plush Outdoor Furniture

I wish I had a garden so I had an excuse to buy this really cool set of outdoor furniture. The FildeFer collection  uses  iron rods to draw outlines of a classic plush upholstered living room set.  It also helps that they also come in my favorite shade of blue.

Summer Wedges

Summer is almost here, or so I like to think. This means that the search for the perfect summer wedge is on. Every year I go on the hunt for that shoe that is comfy enough for the whole day, and manages to carry me from day to night. Few succeed and I often find myself buying flats in the middle of a hot NY summer day when the failing ones let me down. Here are the finalists for Summer 2011. Some are out of budget, but a girl is always allowed to dream.

Oh, and just in case you forgot, I’m a 6.5 and I accept gifts.

My Blue Period

If you’ve been to my apartment, you’ll notice I have a bit of a thing — and by that i mean obsession– with a special shade of blue. You can call it Tiffany blue, Eggshell blue, turquoise, Robin Egg blue or even Martha blue. I don’t care. What you call it makes no difference to me as long as I can get my hands on something with that color.

When I was putting together an inspiration board to decorate my apartment I realized there was quite a lot of this blue and I tried my best to control myself so I added other shades of light blue. Well, now I’m rambling. The point is. I love the color and have put together a collage of items that can give your home a splash of my favorite shade of blue.

You can get some of these at flea markets, Macy‘s, Etsy and Lamps Plus.

Lovely Aprons

I’m a fan of online shopping, baking and fashion so it was inevitable that my love for them would eventually lead to a search for a cute and fun apron.

I was pleasantly surprised with these Etsy finds:

Buy them here, here, here and here.

Pineberries

I’m not easily surprised when it comes to food, but these not only caught my eye, but also had me wondering if I had missed something all my life. Before you try to check your memory to see if you’ve ever seen these let me help you out. The odds are that no, you haven’t.

These strawberry-like berries were “re-launched” by Waitrose last April after near extension

According to the Guardian‘s review from last year they’re not all that great, but I still think they’re cute.

I’m curious and would love to try them, even if they’re supposed to taste like watered down pineapples. I’d love to know if I could get my hand on these in the US.

Found them here.
