I am absolutely and utterly obsessed with all things egg recently (particularly this delicious deviled egg recipe) and almost squealed with delight when I came across this egg boat recipe. It's virtually an egg and cheese scramble baked into demi-baguettes. These would be fantastic for entertaining guests or Sunday brunch. Yum! xoxo

I am feeling a bit of the winter blues lately so what better way to combat freezing temps and biting winds than with beautiful, ethereal pastels? I know it's been a few months but looking at the images of Spring fashion week has me feeling a little warmer already! Pastels were everywhere in floral trousers and chiffon frocks and even some wild accessories from Prada. I know it seems cliche but every Spring I long for delicate hues and over-the-top florals and I'm glad that designers are embracing this trend. My favorite, hands-down, was the Louis Vuitton show where Marc Jacobs incorporated a life-size pastel carousal on the runway.
Here are some pastel trends I found around the web creeping into some more affordable retailers. Stay warm!
Comfy pastel funnel neck sweatshirt from Gap...
Amazing tunic from topshop...
These platforms would look AMAZING on tanned legs.....
I want to collect and trade these rubber bangles like in grade school...
Pretty blouse that I would tuck into some high was it front-tie khakis...

I was flipping through the NYT Sunday Styles section this Monday and I came across a small article on a photographer I had never heard of, Georges Dambier. From the first glance at the picture accompanying the article, I knew I needed to do a little research on this photographer. Dambier started his career working with the famous artist and poster designer Paul Colin. After WWII Dambier started his photography career which would eventually land him a permanent job at Elle magazine and many other fashion publication's including Vogue, over the years. He was a prominent fashion photography in Paris through the 1950's which is where most of the photos above are taken. I love how he captures women in such unique and elegant manner. Very feminine. Aren't they lovely?

Anyone that knows me knows I have a map obsession. Currently I have 4 framed in my apartment along with a decorative "K" in my room with a vintage map motif. So of course I am in love with these map prints from JHill Design. She even does personalized ones for custom orders. So neat! Right now you can enter to win a custom print over at Cornflake Dreams. I entered, will you??
Even though I am Irish I never really get into the holiday. I didn't even celebrate here in Chicago this
weekend, mostly wanting to avoid a hangover for an entire week. I am stuck in bed all day sick, and therefore definitely will not be going out. So, I thought I would celebrate a tiny bit and do a green related post of some of my favorite green stuff around the web. For those of you not stuck in bed, have a fun and boisterous night!

To my chagrin, I discovered this morning that the stool at my makeup table completely broke. How
serendipitous it was then that I came across these gorgeous stools by Claire-Anne O'Brien. They look
so incredibly comfortable and are super stylish! I am in love. Her work is so unique and delightfully
