Dear Blog Friends, I need a pretty blog header...

I wish I knew people who had awesome graphic design skills. For years now I have wanted a cute header for my blog. A picture of orchids with a pretty font. I usually give up every time I Google image search "Orchids". If anyone out there wants to help me I will love you forever and make you something cute and or delicious.

Do I ever mention that I live in New York?

I have been thinking about the shape my blog will take in the new year.
Tomorrow morning I leave New York. I have been here for 3 and a half months about. I am going home for about 3 weeks to my home in Malibu. Nicholas and I had Artichoke Pizza last night on 14th between 2nd and 1st ave. I wish the past few months I had documented my time here. There are so many places we have discovered and I haven't even had the time to write about them. Tonight we are going to get our favorite hot dogs from Crif Dog on St. Marks.

I stumbled upon this photo on a friends blog and was comforted when I realized it was of my home.

help get me through winter

I am in love with these knit neck warmers from Ozetta's Etsy store! They seem so snuggly they are perfect to wrap yourself up in this winter.

my favorite color...

Marigold, or as Pantone has it titled, "Mimosa" is predicted as the top color of 2009!
I'm glad they finally got the memo. I even felt the need to wear my old marigold tights the other week for a friendsgiving potluck dinner. It looks like American Apparel even brought back their old marigold color hoodie out of retirement.

Of course I will never abandon my O.P.I "need sunglasses?" nail color.

some marigold items that i need in my life:

coming and going coat rack from urban outfitters

A set of Baggu re-useable shopping bags.

"Stay Gold" shirt from Sophmore NYC
