Utterly Inspiring..

I am often blown away by the ways people express their creativity. Above are two amazing displays of artistic skill and finese. If you take a closer look at the works of Guido Daniele and James Kuhn you'll notice all of these paintings are actually on the human body. It's amazing how Daniele forms his hands and arms into appearing like and animal and I certainly cannot get over the ways that Kuhn blends his facial features into the object he is portraying. I love how he uses his own eyes for the eyes on some of the face painting!! Be sure to check out their sites for other amazing works. Which one is your favorite?

Are these not totally the same shoe for 1/4th of the price!? Do I dare ask...would you go with the steal or the real deal??? I'm amazed how similar they are!

I'm a Barbie Girl..In a Barbie World

One obsession that remains from my childhood is the elegance and beauty of Barbies. Maybe it's their never ending supply of fashionable clothes or maybe its the pink splashes in everything related to Barbie..whatever it is, Barbies are the epitome of girly-ness across the world. Robert Best, from Project Runway season 3, has created this fabulous collection of Barbie sketches. They are truly pieces of art. Here are a few of my favs! check out more of these on

If I had $600,000....

"The most colorful and whimsical small beach getaway you will find anywhere ... totally designed and "staged" by Betsey Johnson as only she could do it. A setting of tropical gardens with one lap pool and one large pool, 4 kingsize bungalow suites w/bath, 1 al fresco suite with double bed under palapa roof w/bath, 2 lounge areas, 1 dining area, 1 kitchenette and 1 full kitchen, laundry room, and caretaker's quarters."
Are you drooling yet? I sure am! How amazing would it be to live in the vibrant and colorful Mexican villa designed by the fabulous Betsey Johnson!? Paradise Properties in Zihuatanejo, Mexico has this beauty listed for sale. Look at all these gorgeous pics they have posted of the place! It's so cheerful and tropical. Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket...
