monograms off madison, I’m loving this store

A few years ago a friend of mine took me to a new store called Monograms Off Madison, located in a beautiful old townhouse off Madison Avenue on 93rd Street in New York City, and I loved it! I recently went back and they have even more fun things for kids and wonderful gifts for men, women and the home. Although they don’t offer very many things online, if you are in New York it’s worth the trip up town to see this shop. There of course are lots of pink and green and preppy items like tote bags, … Read more

beauty: dr.’s remedy enriched nail polish, free of the big 3 toxins

it’s a kid’s holiday: trees, candy & oscar oh my!

I’m so glad I’ve saved several of the Martha Stewart Kids issues that I used to work on because this Candy Tree (photographed by Anna Williams) is so pretty I wanted to share it with you. Art Director, Deb Bishop did such an amazing job on these specials. I love the candy sticks around the bottom and the jelly candy as ornaments. Now that I have toddlers running around I realize you can’t put those ornaments from Bergdorf anywhere near the bottom of the tree – if at all!  Here are some online candy shops to help you recreate this look: … Read more
