* APAK *

The adorable blog Tokyo Bunny just clued me in to an amazing talent, APAK, a design studio in Portland, Oregon. The post was about APAK's solo show "Rainbow Garden" at Tinklark Gallery in LA. Images above include gallery art pieces, as well as lovely artwork and stationery products available in the APAK shop, and their Etsy shop.

Bedrooms Babies Love

JCPenney happens to have really cute baby's room furniture and bedding (exclusive designs). Who knew? If you can afford a step up from the price range of Target or Babies 'R' Us, then this would be a very sweet option. Their cribs are beautiful.

I discovered Makool advertised on the side of Frolic!, and I immediately loved these lovely these pieces. Very unique and I'm sure would make you feel beautiful while wearing them.

New York Times Tote Bag Offer

I have been feeling a great need to subscribe to news magazines (Time, Newsweek), but I never thought about getting an actual newspaper. Well, now I am tempted. The New York Times is offering this very sweet tote bag to new subscribers (I learned from this morning's Daily Candy). Image from The Scout blog. The Scout says:

Books and bags go hand in hand, but what about newspapers and magazines? They’ll work just as well. The New York Times T Magazine produced a limited edition tote bag last fall in conjunction with the release of their fall fashion preview. They were handed out during fashion week with a few given away to their readers. Needless to say they disappeared pretty quickly. The tote has returned, but is only available to subscribers.

Fossil is Still Cool

Fossil used to be one of my favorite shops, like 5 or 10 years ago. No one seems to make a big deal out of it anymore. But now I think I may be missing out if I don't check out the goods once in a while. Quality stuff and not too hard on your wallet...except that you may want to throw it out and get a new one from Fossil. (Note to husband: the above oversize sunglasses case would be a great gift to surprise me with).

Father's Day Cards from Egg Press

Way to go Egg Press for making some nifty Dad's Day cards. Definitely not a lot of cool Father's Day cards out there. I'll be sure to get on the ball and have some in The Paper Nut line by next year (and Mother's Day, too, of course).

Have you heard of LookBook? Thanks goes to my sister Renae for cluing me in on this terrific source of fashion inspiration (Check her new blog, So Hot Right Now). Okay, you're probably out there going, "Well, yeah! Who hasn't heard of LookBook?" If you haven't seen it, it's "the Internet's largest source of fashion inspiration from real people around the world." It's awesome to see how many different countries the posts come from and languages the comments are written in. In any case, the overall look and style of the invite-only contributers seems to represent a pretty narrow taste range, like a giant Urban Outfitters catalog (Eighties dominated, slouchy tops, baby doll dresses, micro-to-nonexistent minis, tall socks and nippy little boots). But there's some sweet stuff in there. (Sorry to those of us who don't have the legs to attempt most of these looks).

Are all these people trying way too hard to be cool? I believe it all just simply looks like a lot of fun. And there are also some great hairstyles.
