leafy green interiors

For my birthday this year, my parents gave me a fake tree for my apartment (I know, my parents are cooler than your parents). I've been itching for a nice pop of color for my beige abode that's low maintenance (for my laziness) and low commitment (for my rental-ness). 

Enter faux foliage. 

My tree wouldn't fit in my car so I'm still without, but I can't wait to find the perfect place to put roots down, so to speak. In the meantime, I'm bookmarking a few inspiring interiors to get my foliage fix.

hello march!

March is a big month in my family. My birthday starts off the festivities on day 1 (24 years young!), and my brothers' birthdays follow on the 14th and 23rd. Add in Spring Breaks, Easter, and swimming championships (in the olden days), the last of the ski season, and the 31 days flies by! 

I love this desktop download by Sugar Paper, based on the desk calendar that's taken the blogosphere by storm. (Check out other adorable downloadable options too!)

an honorable mention, oscar-style

The sartorial winners for last week's Academy Awards are well-known (my faves: Jen, Kerry, and Reese!), but I think a definite honorable mention is required, especially among the guest list at the Vanity Fair Party. 

The top of my list: Diane Kruger (with bf Joshua Jackson) in Gianbattista Valli. Love the shape, and the fact she's showing off ze legs!

I'm sad to see the awards season come to a close ... until next year, Hollywood!
