it’s friday, time for friday favorites…

– well, the best news this week is it seems like it is finally spring everywhere. the first sign of spring are beautiful flowers, the abundance of flowers…. makes me happy.

Australia Fashion week 2014 is taking place. loving all the street fashion, getting me in the mood for summer.

– i’m still obsessed with james sansum’s instagram– aren’t you? what an eye! follow him here

– i went to my first high point market last week. i saw so many great friends, made some new ones and of course, i saw great products. the one collection that stood out in my mind. was the aerin lighting collection for visual comfort. astounding!!! mark my word- there are some classics here that we will be revering years from now!

– i’m so thrill that my friend carolina irving is now the creative director for oscar de la renta home. i have no idea if she had her hand in the new york botanical garden table top collection that just launched, all i can say is i want all of it!

– a new feature to friday favorites is my favorite pinterest pins of the week/ see all my pins here

– I’m so excited, i’m heading to punta cana today in the dominican republic for a few days. the straw hat, espadrilles, sunscreen, birkenstock’s and pareo’s are packed…..like i said spring is here now for everybody, but to be honest all i can now think about is summer! have a great weekend!
