Some of the best Apollo 11 photographs taken from NASA’s online Apollo library. Happy Anniversary to landing on the moon. What an accomplishment. I wish I could have watched in amazement when history was made. All i want now is a moon rock!

I love you. Oooppsies did I say it too soon? You would be a perfect fit in another life. However ,I see you less than amused having to park in front of an apartment and having an owner who lives in sweats when at all possible. Its not you its me.
Your one true love.

WE have all been on an airplane where we wish we were sitting next to someone else or wish the person in you aisle wouldn't have brought their lovely pet that seems to be staring at you. Well now flying can be much easier for everyone. If you didn't think it would ever happen, guess again. A new airline launching next week,Pet Airways,is a flight strictly for animals,besides the flight crew of course.
There will be weekly routes between L.A., Denver, Chicago, Baltimore, and NYC. Pawsengers (dogs and cats right now; reptiles, birds, pigs, and more to come) get the VIP treatment in the cabin.
Before boarding, pets can relax in an airport lounge just for them. They get a bathroom break prior to flight, and an attendant checks in with them every fifteen minutes during their journey.
Can I have that job?! I checked online and it is a bit pricey with a one-way flight starting at $149...but if you love you pets as much as I do you will gladly let them ride in comfort and style.
They already thank you :)

We make ourselves a place apart
Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
Till someone find us really out.
'Tis pity if the case require
(Or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
The understanding of a friend.
But so with all, from babes that play
At hide-and-seek to God afar,
So all who hide too well away
Must speak and tell us where they are.

The one obsession in my existence thus far is sugar! I could, grossly, eat a spoonful everyday...and yes i have! As a little girl I used to sneak one every afternoon when I would get home from school(this might explain why it was so hard to get up in the morning). So I thought why not celebrate the lovely 4th of July with a simple cupcake recipe! Its easy, which is the most important because I CAN NOT COOK!!! Well there are a few specialties I have. OTHERWISE I CAN NOT COOK!
Hope everyone has radical weekend and maybe some cupcakes :)CHEERS

A twist on the classic skinny jean by Kova and T with zippers on the pocket.
A debut at the Paris Spring 2009 Fashion show took Chanel guitar and guitar bag to a whole new level! Makes me wish I played the guitar!
John Patrick Organic launched his line in 2007 and follows a green philosophy using natural and organic fibers, recycled fabrics, and botanical coloring. The brand has seen some strong commercial success and the spring 2009 collection shows me why. The collection features blazers and pants suitable for casual office-wear, and more relaxed wear like madras shorts and loose jeans. Oh ya its Organic!

A riddle we all know and it peaked my interest how many people want to know the answer. Its a riddle for crying out loud! So what did I do? I went to my handy know it all: Mr. Google himself.
The answer I found over and over:
"History teaches us that when Archimedes (ca. 287-212 BC) finally
solved this ancient riddle he ran naked through streets shouting
"Eureka!" which of course is Greek for "Hand me a towel!" Luckily the
answer was later recorded on the Rosetta Stone. (Note: If you look
closely you can still make out the tiny woodchuck hieroglyphic). The
answer: 300 cubits, by 50 cubits, by 30 cubits of wood (or enough to
make one good size ark).”
BLAH BLAH BLAH...
After much thought this is my conclusion: everybody knows a woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. Next everyone will be wanting to know why she sells seashells by the seashore. Am I right?

A love for design has evolved more and more in my life. It all began at a young age when I used to dress up in my mothers old pearls, jewels, and over sized high heels pretending to be a rich fashionista. In my late teens ,I began to notice the tiniest of details on furniture, appreciate antiques my grandma had around her home, and gained an abnormal interest in photography. Most recent, I took a career position for an architect firm. Design encompasses my daily routine from seeing new architecture designs on desks next to mine to researching top design publications. I have grown to respect this grand scheme of design step by step and now find myself ,somewhat, obsessing over it all. Furniture, fashion, photographs, architecture; the creation of it all. Here is a taste of my new found glory...stairs. Yes. You read that right.
