the weekly list is my fave

March 23, 2012

I’m a habitual list maker (but what blogger isn’t?) so I’ve decided to start sharing one weekly. Nothing fancy, just some good ole’ fashion pen to paper. I spent too much time at Target this week.

Some other posts I wrote this week that you’re sure to like (but if you don’t, the complaints department is closed):
Probably the happiest post of the week
Are you decorating eggs this year? Check out these cool ideas first
Fab picks in spring’s hottest color (can you guess what it is?)
It’s been entirely way too long since I dedicated a post to garlands, and these ones are pretty
And don’t forget, best of the week!

I’ve already featured Yangyang’s gorgeous abstract paintings but was so thrilled to see that a few or her originals are now available to buy at Anthropologie, I just had to share. I would love to own such a statement piece. Maybe I could swing it as a push present*.

Can’t afford an original? Yangyang has an Etsy shop, Siiso, where she sells affordable prints of her work. I’m planning on doing a whole series in our bedroom.

*yeah right, like Ryan even knows that such a thing exists

Siiso, art by Yangyang Pan, is a YAMF sponsor but I would love her pretty abstract art even if she wasn’t. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email me at

If these really are the best chocolate chunk cookies you’ll ever have, we all better head to the kitchen spotted on Cannelle et Vanille

I dogeared nearly every page of the new Dwell Studio catalog, especially the art work spotted in my mailbox

a red and white party is my fave

March 20, 2012

Red and I have a bit of a rocky past but this Scandinavian inspired birthday party from seesaw, a cute studio in San Francisco, has convinced me we need to make amends. The whole spread automatically reminded me of Chelsea and that’s a good thing.

the socialite family is my fave

I love getting a peek into the homes of the cool kids so I was pretty pumped to come across the site The Socialite Family that documents just that. All of the featured abodes are worth a look and pin but Daphne and Tristan’s stood out to me with the navy and fire engine red color combo that runs throughout, plus you know I can’t resist a good built-in bookcase. Like a moth to a flame (or in my case like a pregnant lady to a bowl of Mini Eggs).
