Bushwick sunsets.

Final finally.

Today I'll be handing in this watercolor floor plan for the final project of my Presentation Techniques class. The rug was quite hard to imitate despite the fact that it looked like a watercolor itself...Nothing else to say! (click on the bottom image for a close up)

Windows worth the pause.

The perfect holiday-spirit-inducing stroll (avoid Weekends in order to be able to call this a stroll) starts on Fifth Avenue in Mid-town Manhattan. Elizabeth and I (latte` in hand) scoped the windows of Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, and Barneys, and ended with a gingerbread cupcake from Alice's Tea Cup. All the photos above are from the Bergdorf windows, whose splendor trumps all others. See the making of them here.

The mind wanders.

I've been lacking inspiration as of late, and thus, no postings. I have come to the conclusion that a massive life change is necessary, so on February 4th I will be quitting my stable and lovely, yet static 9-5 and taking a three week adventure through Mexico. The journey will start in Mexico City and end in Tulum. When I return home I'll be doing the NYC hustle. I am equally nervous and excited, but if you don't take risks you never really live, do you?
San Miguel de Allende, where we will be staying for about a week...
And beautiful Tulum, where we will also be staying about a week...
