Dirpy: DVR for the Internet

Okay, I'm slightly addicted to DIRPY and felt the need to share it. It's basically a DVR for the internet — a great way to save files of your favorite videos and songs on your personal computer.

Speaking of blankets...

My last post was about blankets and this post is about pillows.
I must really love these creative spins on a bedding or I might just be in dire need of a nap.

Dinner Sisters

My friend Melanie and her sister Marian started a food blog on TUMBLR called Dinner Sisters. It's written as letters between the two as they share recipes and cooking tips — such a cute idea. Everything looks so delicious that I... yes "I" as in the person who couldn't cook her way out of a take-out bag... am even inspired to try one of these yummy dishes.

Oh, and make sure to follow them if you have a TUMBLR account — Dinner Sisters.

Natural Beauty

Oh wow, I am in love with these mixed-media illustrations by Angela Stasio. The concept of natural elements stemming from different women capture the essence of "natural beauty." Such a smart & aesthetically pleasing image. Love. Love. Love.

Dexter Inspired Posters

I just started watching Dexter... I know, a little late jumping on the bandwagon, but instantly recognized some of the iconography when I saw these awesome posters by Ty Mattson on Twig & Thistle. How cool is the use of color and in conjunction with vector shapes in this visual story? Definitely bloodthirsty for more designs like this...

Rogue Wave, Midlake & Peter Wolf Crier

Last week I went to see Rogue Wave play at a small venue in Chapel Hill. It was such a fun, energetic show. I also really enjoyed the other bands they're touring with — Midlake and Peter Wolf Crier, both worth checking out. Looks like their fall tour is wrapping up but they are playing in San Francisco this coming weekend, so if you're in the area, definitely go... if not for any other reason, to check out the cute keyboardist's awesome dance moves.

A Day at the Fair

I say, you're never too old for rides at The Fair.
Even if you do exceed the height limit.

Paris Fashion Week Wants

Paris. One of the few places in the world where the girls on the street look just as good, if not better, than the models on the runway.
