Drew Barrymore's Flower Power

Photo By Donato Sardella From WWD.com

Little girl lost, Drew Barrymore, isn't so lost anymore and hasn't been for a while. She had a baby, got married and her new cosmetics line, Flower, just launched at Walmart. With prices from $4.98 to $13.98, Flower cosmetics won't break the bank. Money that normally goes into advertising goes into the formula for the line that includes eye shadow, eyeliner, brow pencils, mascara, foundation, loose powder, bb cream, moisturizer, concealer, lipstick, lip gloss, lip butter, blush, and nail polish. It's the democratization of pretty.

The Lost Weekend


In a fit of pique, I went on a scarf bender. I don't know what to say. It was a weird week and I needed a release which presented itself in the form of gently used Vera Neumann scarves on Etsy. Oh the shame!

20 Years Of Kate Spade!

kate spade new york: things we love: twenty years of 
inspiration, intriguing bits and other curiosities 
($24.44) Amazon

Among the things that I love are all things Kate Spade, so I'm tickled Kate Spade green that a new Kate Spade book is hitting the shelves tomorrow. Has it really been twenty years? 
"within the four walls of kate spade new york, personal style is applauded and cultural curiosity is encouraged. long before the days of pinboards and social sharing, the brand’s in-house creative team began amassing a collection ofthings we love on their website: a crayon ring, a cocktail doodle, a particularly dreamy photograph. 
people began visiting and chiming in with suggestions. now, the things we love have come to life in celebration of the brand’s 20th anniversary. each of the book’s 20 chapters is filled with things we love—from the color red to a well-placed bow to a sense of humor and handwritten notes. part visual diary, part inspirational reference and sprinkled throughout with playful tips and practical advice, things we love is a beautiful compilation that visually represents the spirit of kate spade new york—a place where the colors are bold, smart design is key and fashion is fun." -Amazon

Fabulous Fleurs

Garden Of Ordinary Miracles ($19.57) Amazon
By Robert Zakanitch

The Garden Of Ordinary Miracles looks like it might satisfy my craving for springtime fleurs. Kind of reminds me of Sara Midda's fabulous sketches. 
"Anyone who loves nature will be instantly transported to an alphabetical landscape where everything from azaleas and zinnias bloom all year long. Each overgrown spread bursts with gorgeously rendered full-color and pen-and-ink representations of flora (and fauna) whose names begin with a particular letter. Prance through P, overrun by peonies and poppies, or wander around W’s wisteria and water lilies. With so much to look at and enjoy on each page, readers will be enchanted and entranced by the intricately detailed and whimsical nature of Zakanitch’s art. Packaged as the ultimate gift for adults, gardeners, or those sitting at their knee, this garden book is nothing short of a miracle." -Amazon
