My sister's graduation!

My little sister graduates high school today! 

I love this ad for Tom Ford's fragrance Violet Blonde! The colors are so rich, and the warm shades of her makeup contrasted against the violets really make it a striking image!

Funny Face. One of my favorite movies, and actually the movie that inspired this blog. It's all about challenging social views of beauty. You can see beauty in places you didn't expect, and in people who would surprise you. When I go to Paris, I plan on going everywhere from the movie, and re-creating all the iconic photo-shoots!

I love kittys. I actually named my cat, Kitty. Original, I know. There are so many details in life that we miss out on, and I have discovered how precious Kitty Toes are!

I really do. I always say, women are like cats, and men are like dogs. 
I should write a book. 

Jo Malone's Wild Bluebell fragrance. I love their ads!
You can buy it here

I love these looks from 1958!

For those of you who love vintage pin-up hairdos, Cherry Dollface has a great tutorial! I'll post pics when I've tried it out!

This scene from Becoming Jane gets me every time. James Mcavoy is can't describe.

Top 10 Lovely List

1. THIS BED! It's so beautiful and ethereal. I don't care how over-the-top it is, although the price is enough to keep it out of reach! With this Forest Canopy Bed, you would always feel like an elvish princess!

Wednesday Wishlist

First Wednesday Wish-list post! Bringing you all my latest wishes and dreams, because wishes don't cost anything! 

1. I am in love with this Tail Me More Mug from Modcloth. My boyfriend bought me the fox design, but  they are both so adorable- I want to fill my house with whimsical things!

2. This lovely Printed Lace Raincoat from Free People is completely amazing. Unfortunately, it's out of my budget, but finger's crossed that it goes on sale!

3. I need this Cardboard Taxidermy in my life! It makes a statement and looks so darling! All of the charm without the macabre of actual taxidermy. 

4. This String of Pearls plant is so beautiful! I saw it for the first time used in an Anthropologie window display and I knew, someday, I had to have it!

5. And lastly, the Pièce de résistance! This guitar. Is. Divine. The Fender Pawn Shop '72 Electric Guitar cannot get any better. Sea foam color, semi-hollow Stratocaster body with an f-hole, and a Telecaster neck.

The Tempest

One of my favorite quotes from the Tempest by William Shakespeare. Many scholars call this speech Shakespeare's farewell to the theatre, as the Tempest was most likely the last play written entirely by him. He uses such beautiful language to muse the meaning of life. Like a play that is ended, the backdrop is taken down, the actors go home, and the world and characters they created fade away. 

Top 10 Lovely List

This girl can do no wrong. Coco Rocha is by far the loveliest model, in my opinion. She is a posing queen. You will probably see her a lot on my blog, she is so enigmatic to watch, she truly embodies everything a model should be. 
Here are her top 10 shots from Zac Posen's Resort 2012 collection:

Art Nouveau

I completely adore this book! I got it from my mom, who used it for her design courses in college. It has given me inspiration and joy time and time again! I love Art Nouveau and it's ethereal and winsome style, and I have included some pages out of the book for you to enjoy!
You can purchase this lovely book here

Each page is lovelier than the next!

I just love how fairy-like and magical the drawings are. Gorgeous!

Impromptu photo op at the park. It's hard for my sisters and I to go anywhere these days without the camera getting whipped out. You should have seen the look people gave us when we were play fighting. One sister isn't pictured- she delegated herself as camera woman.
