In January of 1997 I got my first pair of New Balance. It was a pair of the
801 trail runner. Comfortable and popular, I adored these shoes.
I wore them A LOT...my poor 801's got worn down to the core and
were eventually replaced...
To this day I run in New Balance shoes...and today for the first time in a month I ran 2 miles. I'm tired...but I feel great.

So here's a tip of the hat to my first pair of New Balance, I hope shoe heaven is treating you well.

I saw this image and it made me smile. I currently have a stack of 15 books at my desk at work. I bought them all at the Miami Dade County Public Library's Annual Book Sale...they cost a grand total of $6! My books range in titles from old favorites like "The Prophet" to new friends yet to be discovered such as, "Life of Pi" and "Wicked"...at home I have another stack of about 20 from last year...
I love books...and I am making an early New Year's resolution to read every night like I use to. Just a chapter or two a night...some quiet time with friends.
Really can't live without them...and wouldn't want to try to.

Wait a Minute Mr. Postman

Wait, oh wait, wait a minute Mr. Postman...waiiiiiiit Mr. Postman!
I love interesting design, and I thought this bag by Kate Spade is genius! Isn't it lovely?!
It's like my pen that looks like a pencil...and the one I have that looks like a red crayon...genius!
To me, life is about surrounding yourself with interesting objects that speak to you.
So kudos Mrs. Spade...I now covet this bag of yours...

Cocktail Rings

I feel like this week is going to be the week of the cocktail rings.
Well they are pretty, they make a statement...and there are a lot of fun events I am going to with Art Basel and I think I am going to take my collection of cocktail rings for a walk through the art world.
So why are they called cocktail rings? I have two theories...
1. you wear them to cocktail parties
2. when you wear them and drink a cocktail, you show them off...
it's more than likely a combination of the two...
So here's to the week of the cocktail ring...I'll be wearin' 'em...what fun!
