A couple of my favorite current things that I was so lucky to get over the weekend:
1. Fresh colorful bundle of flowers from the local farmer’s market in L.A.
i love having fresh flowers around the house especially in my room; keeps the rooms looking
pretty while smelling like spring!
2. A gift box of eight delicious Vanilla Macarons from Ladurée that made it’s way all the way from NYC…Lucky me! Thank you Olga!
i’ve been a huge fan of macarons and although they’re pricey, i still try to indulge every time 
i go to bottega louie- vanilla + mocha are my top faves.
What’s are some of your current fave things? why?
p.s trying to experiment more with my posts/photos…I’ve always loved writing on photos so I thought i’d start doing that on some of mine, let me know if you guys are digging it or not?
Send suggestions too!

    I love fresh flowers too–they make me smile every time I see them.

    And macarons are amazing although my husband doesn’t like them which is a shame–but it it means more for me, which is kind of a win win.

  26. Bola (Lilac Dreams) Comment #26

    I am currently loving blogging (since I just started). It’s a fun, new way to express myself.

    I am currently also enjoying going for more walks now that the Canadian winter is hopefully over and the sun is finally making an appearance again.

    I like the writing on the pics.

    I’m seeing macaroons everywehere but have not tried one yet. Right now, I’m into banana peanut butter shakes, not straightening my hair, and my riding black boots :)

  32. Lisa Ann Karst Comment #32

    I’ve been busy in photoshop some myself. I’m teaching myself how to make a gif. I think adding notes to your photos gives them a little extra sometimes. Plus, if I am in a hurry, and I only have time to browse the photos there is still some context to them.

    I’ve been blogging for sometime now, do you any suggestion on gaining exposure? I would greatly appreciate any feedback you can give me on my blog. Thanks.

    Hi Jules,
    I love your blog and visit it every morning w my cup of joe!

    Right now I am loving air diffusers (you know, the little bottles of scented oil with those sticks in it), they just make any room smell amazing. I keep on in my bathroom and in my bedroom. Idea: I may have to blog about that!

    Another thing I am in love with is anything lace. I am looking into making a lace scarf.

    My current favorites also include fresh flowers form the Farmers’ Market! I buy mine on Fridays in downtown where I work, and then in Brentwood on Sundays after my run. There’s no better way to cheer up one’s mood (or room) than fresh flowers!

    I am also in love with crop pants this season. It’s still a bit chilly in LA, but I can’t wait to start wearing them when it warms up – I’ve been stocking them this month and am excited to finally have some color in my closet!

    That and Zee Avi’s new cd pretty much sums my “love it!” list.

    Cheers!

    beautiful. i love the idea of strolling to a nearby farmers market and picking up a fresh of bouquet. pretty things can brighten any room. text on pic is pretty dope as well.

  45. The Vintage Scene Comment #45

    They look more like advertisements from the actual company than from your creative point of view. A photo without words allows your reader to conceptualize. These photographs have become more commercial and less about art.

  46. everYOURS everMINE Comment #46

    I’ve never ate macarons!!!! Can you believe it?¿! I’ll be in Paris in a couple of weeks, should I visit ladurée?¿ :D
