Purple Nurple?

I think I've developed an obsession with lilac:

  • O.P.I.'s Do You Lilac It? in constant rotation
do you lilac it
Blackberry Curve Smokey Violet
Ran Bay Aviators Purple Lilac

En Passant

I didn't go out of my way to match everything,
it just kind of happened.

What's your current color?

Fringe, It's Not Just a TV Show

disclaimer: I'm not the biggest Coach fan in the world...
yes, i have a few pieces (my favorite is my mom's City Bag from the 80's, but digress) and i really appreciate their leather quality...
but most of their products just scream "white trash luxury" to me - you know the ones I'm talking about (as seen in suburban American high schools).

however, this one really caught my eye:

Coach Krystal

Coach Krystal

$498 @ [pre-order for june delivery]

not only is it a super-stylish bag, (not too hippied-out, but definitely laid back), it's inspired by the very talented Ms. Krystal Simpson from hipster blog What Is Reality Anyway? Definitely adds some serious cool points to even your most casual summer outfit.

not familiar? her blog is worth a browse.
let me know what you think.
about the bag, the blog, life in general.

Do You Lilac My Mad Black Onyx?

i've been pretty obsessed with O.P.I. nail polishes recently, with the most random assortment of colors:

do you lilac it
Do You Lilac It?

mad as a hatter
Mad as a Hatter (from the Alice in Wonderland Collection)

black onyx
Black Onyx

and occasionally i take it to the next level with Essie Matte About You matte topcoat.

and as any beauty queen can tell you, O.P.I. really is the best.
the new Shrek collection is way too tempting.

what's your favorite nail color?

Kinetic Sculpture Race 2010

The Kinetic Sculpture Race, hosted by the Visionary Arts Museum, is one of my favorite annual Baltimore events. It's a bit tricky to explain, so definitely check out the website for a better explanation that I could ever offer.

There were some great sculptures this year, a few favorites are below:
