Oh another blog for the blog roll on the front page! Joy! My sister Grace sent me an email this morning, telling me about her favorite blog of the moment, The Selby. It can be best described as a blog with one basic concept: post photos of artsy folks at home in their artsy spaces. It's like Sartorialist for the design crowd! Wonderful.
What I love… Continue

My apologies for taking Monday off last week. But we're back. It's My Modern Mondays and today we'll be talking about modern mirrors.
Something beautiful about a nicely designed mirror. They can serve as an art piece in your living room, enhancing the space and making the room come alive. Here are my favorites.

"World Animal Day was observed earlier this month - on October 4th. Started in Florence Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists, World Animal Day has since expanded its focus from its original intent, which was to bring attention to endangered or threatened species. The day is now set aside as a time to reflect on all of the animals we share this world with, and our involvement with them - and to spur action to commemorate that respectful relationship. Half the world's mammals are… Continue

What strikes me most about this Taiwanese artist is that he can modernize anime looking characters. With clean lines and the use of a few vibrant colors, Yu Cheng Hong
shows us that it doesn't have to be too complicated or colorful to be beautiful. Oh yes....and these girls look like they can… Continue

As I get older, I've started to notice that I've gained a great appreciation for things like art, wine, and classical music. Frankly, MTV seems to always disappoint me (what kind of Britney showing was that last night?!), I'd rather watch the newest show on Bravo (thanks sis for the heads up on Rachel Zoe's new show) or check out a festival or art… Continue

As much as the Met has opened up new and exciting opportunities and ideas, it's also given me a fair amount of stress. Putting yourself out to the public is damn scary, I don't care who you are. So as much as I love conquering that fear, I can't help but struggle with it each and every day.
Here are the particular questions that have haunted me these past few weeks:

Ok, so I guess this is where the self-love comes in (Kara, I am trying).
I wanted to tell you how I became 1 of 100 ambassadors of OneWebDay, 'cause it's quite hilarious.
I wanted to sign up for a social network or Web 2.0 conference, so I was clicking around on websites (this was literally 2 days ago) and happened to come across something about Craig Newmark. I had read about him before but saw that he had a… Continue
