I love the nautical feel of the mats, bracelets and key rings from SerpentSea. Made from recycled marine ropes by Sophie Aschauer, each mat is named after the four most infamous pirates of the 17th century while the key rings bear the name of a greek mythological sea nymph.
Perfect for a beach house or to bring a little beach to your house.

I'm back from two weeks in India with all of the usual jet lag (hello 5 am wake ups and 7 pm bed times) and totally enchanted with the country. It was a fascinating visit filled with incredible sights, smells and shopping. The following are a few of my favorite pictures - for more please check out the full album on flickr.

I'm headed to India this afternoon for two weeks. This video is all the inspiration I need, and I can't wait to explore a place I've dreamed of visiting since I was a kid. So much food to taste, shopping to do and pictures to take.
Daniel and Mirra from the Perennial Plate have some amazing work. Definitely worth looking at the rest of their stuff!

It's starting to get sticky out there - and although shorts and tees are my typical weekend wardrobe, there's so much to be said for a little cotton dress. For dates-nights or market mornings, or to toss over your bikini on the way back from the beach, stay chic and cool this summer in these breezy fuss-free frocks.

It was high time to bid farewell to the old header and shake off some of the dust around the blog. I'm still working on updating old posts and optimizing everything to fit our new wide format... but it's getting there.
The blog has had it's fair share of ups and downs over the last four years and 500 posts - and I'm sure there will be plenty more in the future. Thanks for sticking with it and reading my travelogues, recipes, musings and wish lists when I get around to posting them. I love having you here.
Brasilia is a master planned city, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer and built entirely in only four years between 1956-1960. We spent our days exploring the swooping grey and white concrete buildings and the surrounding wilderness filled with streams and waterfalls perfect for swimming in.
