Charley Harper For Old Navy -- Cute AND Affordable Baby Stuff!

Illustrator Charley Harper was known for his highly stylized, boldly graphic modern interpretations of wildlife. His work was so righteous that December 8, 2006 was declared "Charley Harper Day" by the mayor of Cincinnati. Harper passed away in 2007, but his work lives on not just in Cincinnati, but now in a series of beyond-sweet tees, toys, games and books at Old Navy.

Also, about 10 trillion of my friends are having babies, and they're all due around May. As one friend put it, it's like they all got together and had an orgy that we weren't invited to... thank God. Plus, key parties are SOOOOO '74. But I do LOVE me some soft snuggly babies and the accompanying cute baby things that go along with them, and these Charley Harper Old Navy items are no exception. They're precious, AND they're for the baby on a budget. And believe me, if I had a baby, it'd be on a budget. Because mama needs some new shoes, you know?

I GUESS babies need to learn and stuff. So they as well learn cute-ly and in a cute manner and fashion.

And, like, I'm no Dr. Spock or anything, but I just need to say, use condoms and stuff if you're NOT looking to have a baby, because as cute as they are, they DO get in the way of shopping for cute stuff for you, you know? Just saying...

Britney is back

The pop princess, Miss Britney Spears, is back in business. Arata mai bine ca niciodata, primul single de pe albumul pe care il va lansa pe 2 decembrie este pe primele locuri in topuri, apare pe copertele a doua reviste importante - Rolling Stones si Glamour si asta este doar inceputul.
Mai putin laudabil este faptul ca i-a copiat Madonnei tinuta de scena pana in cele mai mici detalii.

Picture Postcard: What a rocket scientist should look like

It is a magnificent moustache, bristling with mischief, sweeping from cheek-bone to cheekbone like a second smile

Daniel Jubb, 24, the owner of the moustache, looks like a Victorian scientist transposed to the 21st century

EJ brought this image into my life last week as it was part of her daily batch of links she sent my way and I just had to share it with you. Daniel Jubb is a rocket scientist and this is exactly how a rocket scientist should look. I just can't believe that this chap is a mere twenty four years old...I am the same age and am neither a rocket scientist or more importantly could never grow a moustache like this!

Celebritatile aprind luminile de Craciun

Marile orase au intrat deja in atmosfera sarbatorilor de iarna. Vitrinele magazinelor au inceput sa fie ornate inca din octombrie cu aranjamente luminoase, Mos Craciuni, reni si alte elemente specifice sezonului de iarna.
Onoarea aprinderii luminilor festive a revenit celebritatilor care s-au remarcat in acest an: Marion Cotillard, castigatoare a Premiului Oscar, cuplului Nicole Richie-Joel Madden, proaspat numit ambasador al Bunavointei pentru UNICEF, formatiei Sugababes, care a implinit 10 ani de activitate. Stella a organizat traditionala petrecere la boutique-ul ei din Londra, iar Karl Lagerfeld a inaugurat sezonul oficial de cumpărături de Crăciun.
Designerul de la Chanel a creat o papusa, "La Marionnette Coco", care este expusa in vitrinele magazinului Printemps de pe bulevardul Hausmann. Acestea evoca o gradina onirica populata cu plante si flori neobisnuite si care invita la visare si evadare din cotidian. Karl Lagerfeld a inaugurat vitrinele "Visul cosmic" si a deshis oficial sezonul de shopping pentru sarbatori.

Aprinderea luminitelor decorative la magazinul Stella McCartney este in fiecare an o sarbatoare la care sunt invitati prietenii si clientii fideli. Nu au lipsit Kate Moss si fiica ei Lila Grace, tatal Stellei, sir Paul McCartney, comedianul Peter Kay si un Mos Craciun orchestra care canta la mai multe instrumente.

Cuplul Nicole Richie si Joel Madden au aprins uriasul fulg de zapada UNICEF si 20 de candelabre de Baccarat pe Rodeo Drive, bulevard supranumit Mecca al impatimitilor dupa cumparaturi.
Nicole a ales o rochie din satin albastru, vintage Yves Saint Laurent, pantofi peep toe Christian Louboutin si colier din colectia ei de bijuterii in colaborare cu Mouawad care se va lansa luna viitoare si pe care a numit-o House of Harlow 1960.

Traditia aprinderii decoratiunilor luminoase pe celebrul bulevard Champs-Elysées dateaza din 1981. Acestea de intind pe o distanta de vreo 2 kilometri si impodobesc 415 arbori. Actrita Marion Cotillard a apasat butonul care a iluminat Parisul. Poate mai putin placut este faptul ca sunt aceleasi ca in 2007.
Coincidenta sau nu, Marion a purtat un mantou Chanel asa cum a facut si Vanessa Paradis anul trecut.

Englezii stiu ca nu mai este mult pana la venirea Craciunului cand se aprind luminitele pe Oxford street. Anul acesta fetele de la Sugababes au "pushed the button". Cele trei fete au ales sa-si sublinieza talia - Heidi a pus o curea neagra peste trenciul albastru in stil military, Amelle a optat pentru o curea cu o catarama mare si aurie, ca sa adauge putina culoare outfitului all black, iar Keisha pentru una simpla peste mantoul clasic.
