Happy Holidays!


Friday, December 25, 2009

Happy Holidays!! I am at home in snowy Boston curled up by the fire listening to B's Christmas Mix from 06' (and yes, it still holds up!) with a stack of new books, hot chocolate with mini marshmallows and my adorable dog, Chloe! I hope all of you are having the loveliest holiday weekend (wherever you are) and I'll be back on Monday with some fresh LPC magic! Happy x 10 to you all!


Man Shops Globe


Monday, December 14, 2009

Happy Monday, Children! So today I'd like to bring your attention to (what I consider to be) the most fantastic new show on the Sundance Channel, Man Shops Globe. Our host is Keith Johnson who in each half-hour program invites viewers along on an international treasure hunt visiting in out-of-the-way antique shops, private dealerships and craft stalls looking for one-of-a-kind home furnishings and accessories. Johnson travels to a new country each episode in search of fantastic and unusual decorative objects, furniture, and textiles all that will eventually be mass marketed at the-greatest-store-of-all-time and my personal favorite, Anthropologie.

Check out more information about the program here and set your tivo's to record as soon as possible!

Up in the Air


Friday, December 11, 2009

I have to be honest with you all: Up in the Air may be my favorite movie of the year. I saw it on Monday night and I can't stop thinking about it. This movie has the perfect recipe; directed by the incredibly talented Jason Reitman (director of Juno and Thank you for Smoking), a ROCKIN' soundtrack (must download track: help yourself by sad brad smith) and actors like George Clooney and Vera Farmiga ... you just simply can't go wrong. I rarely post movie trailers here so I mean serious business people! Go out and see it and let me know how you feel. It's a three hanky movie though, so make sure to bring some kleenex! Happy rainy Friday to you all!

in time of daffodils


Tuesday, December 8, 2009

A sudden chill has floated into Los Angeles and I've found myself doubling up on layers of tights and cozy blankets. I know I'm supposed to have thicker skin being a girl from Boston and all, but California's consistent sunshine has gotten me addicted! Albert Camus once wrote, In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer, which I try to always remember even if the cold has got my spirits a little down. I have realized also, that I have never posted any poetry on LPC. So, let's change that! Below is my favorite poem by ee cummings. I hope you enjoy and in the depth of your winter (wherever you are), it brings you a little sunshine.

in time of daffodils
{by ee.cummings}

in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me

Modern Love


I am in love. With two things. The first is the band Bloc Party. The 2nd is La Blogotheque. Check out the acoustic version of my favorite B. Party jam, Modern Love. This song breaks my heart.

Give a little love


Monday, December 7, 2009

Happy Monday, kittens! I hope you all has a fantastic weekend. I spent the weekend resting up after a hectic week and listening to the latest Rilo Kiley album, Under the Blacklight. I don't know if it's because it's the holiday season and there is some magic in the air, but RK's song " Give a little love" sounded particularly beautiful to my ears this weekend. Enjoy the song and some lovely images below! p.s. if you are feelin' even more in the gushy holiday mood, check out one of my favorite blogs that's all about . . . that's right . .. you guessed it . .. le love!
