You would be hard pressed to find a woman that would turn down a bubble bath. Warm scented water, a tub filled to the top with those tiny white bubbles, flickering candles, a glass of wine and some soft music… a perfect end to a long day. What could possibly make it better. What about a girly high heeled shoe tub tastefully glitzed for the feminine fashionista in you? This artsy collection was created by the Italian-based SICIS Art Mosaic Factory. The luxurious shoe tubs are decorated in flowery and glitzy glass mosaic on the outside and acrylic and/or fiberglass on the inside. Which is your favorite?
I admit it… I am hooked on Pinterest. What makes it so darn addicting? To visual people, it is a virtual smorgasbord of sights, colors, ideas and you can count me into this giant playground of eye candy. Business’s are quickly jumping on the band wagon although the clearly are still trying to figure out exactly how to align it with their business. I’ve seen a bevy of Etsy artists already using it to display their designs. I have been on for almost 6 months, but only the last few weeks has brought the treasures I am now seeing. It can be hard to get a grasp of how and who to follow when you first join, so I have been gathering lists from around the web to share with you. Please, if you have others you love and want to share leave them in the comments… after all… one can never have too many Pinterest friends!

Pottery Barn Kids is focused entirely on the greater benefits of the products they sell. They include pinboards designed for upcoming holidays (Valentine’s Day), sneak previews of new products, and other items mommies are sure to love. Read more
Sundance Channel’s LOVE/LUST spotlighted the controversial and covetable fashion. The inaugural episode stitched up the story of The Little Black Dress, revealing how a series of events – not to mention the formidable Coco Chanel – helped transform an emblem of rebellion into a wardrobe warhorse. It’s a fascinating, juicy story punctuated with smart imagery and the colorful commentary of numerous fashion insiders, including designer Vera Wang; author and Barneys New York creative ambassador Simon Doonan; and renowned fashion historian Valerie Steele, the Director and Chief Curator of the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).
If you missed it, Sundance has made it available online. Simply slip into that little black dress darlin’s and click below. Enjoy…
