alexa chung on... 

I love reading about the favorite beauty products of It Girls, especially when they dish about the singular product that defines their look. For Alexa Chung, that product is eyeliner. Famous for always sporting a cat eye, Ms. Chung notes that she used to use gel liner but ditched it in favor of the felt-tipped pen. I, too, did the same years ago. There was a point in my life when I swore by Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner... and then I discovered YSL's Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils. Pure magic. When I ran out of my first tube, I took a chance on a drug store variety in a suspicially similar container and I liked it just the same - in fact, I'm wearing it right now. If you're in the market for some great eyeliner, check out L'oreal Paris' Lineur Intense liner in Carbon Black. C'est Fantastique!

mita corsini bland

I found these large interior watercolors by Mita Corsini Bland to be quite visually appealing. They're a feast for the eyes, with so much going on that I'm not sure where to look first. But it's what I love about her work. If you're a Sister Parish fan, than you must recognize her immediately (she did the illustrations for this book). A few of Mita's prints are for sale here, and though they're eons out of my price range I've spent the past five minutes fantasizing about which one I'd purchase and where it would live (Albert Hadley's bedroom, SVP, and I'd hang it to the right of my bookshelf). If you can afford it, you should most certainly snatch one up :)

jean cocteau is rad

I wrote about Jean Cocteau's Milly-la-Forêt maison a little over a year and a half ago, but when I found these beautiful images I couldn't help but write about it again. Madeline Castaing, one of the premier decorators of the 20th century, assisted with the design. And I'm mad for it. Leopard walls, a tufted canopied bed, art and art supplies everywhere... it's perfect. The horn chair reminds me of a post I wrote for Coveted Home earlier this week (Coveted Home is a super cool boutique and design studio in KC where I now work, though it feels more like play :). Would you ever upholster your walls in an animal print? I totally would. Especially if I could do it in this Scalamandre number! Dream big.
