I love these original coffee cups by Boey. Entertaining and a great way to pass the time sipping hot chocolate/coffee.
Article from my Examiner site: With spring fast approaching in Houston, you might be dashing to the nearest floral or pastel dress you find. But these aren't the only trends spring fashion has to offer. Enter color blocking. The look all urbanites should try at least once. It's fresh and bold and easy to put together, even for those who would like to be a little more under the radar. If bright orange and fuschia clashing together isn't quite your look, try mixing beige with black and white. Neutral tones have a way of playing down the striking effect of color blocking. There's such a varity of options to choose from as well. Try mixing tan dress pants with a bright lemon-lime top or a banded dress with three loud colors. Forget coffee. These looks have enough pop to jolt anyone awake.
I'm not sure what has gotten into me, but I've got a serious case of wanderlust. While I always have it mildly, this time may be different. I'm considering selling my car and furniture just so I can get a one way ticket and spend a couple of months going wherever the wind may take me. But since I've been learning French, my head is filled with chateaux, cobble-stone streets, and baguettes. I've also watched Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette one too many times. So until then, I'll have to settle on Google images to quench my European thirst.
