From the little I know about the record industry (is it even still called that??) I know the second album is considered, more often than not to experience the sophomore slump....so when I first learned about Lupe Fiasco's second release, The Cool, I was hesitant.I LOVE Food & Liquor and wondered, could it be topped?I can't say one outshines the other...because they both rock! Buy, buy, buy!!!

I am off to LA this week and plan to hit Julian Schnabel's current show, Christ's Last Day, at the Gagosian Gallery.
And by now you've probably seen, heard and talked your fill of last night's Oscars but one final comment. What is with Enchanted taking 3 of the 5 song slots for that category? They really couldn't find any others to nominate....

This post was supposed to follow a post with a you tube video but its taking hours and since I have no patience it won't be in the intended sequence.
Have you seen this documentary? I was glued to my seat and whoever said the french are lazy will eat their words. The Marc Jacobs/Vuitton team is incredibly dedicated and talented. It was fascinating to watch the design process, true inspiration at work. And the final scene at the Vuitton show in Paris gave me chills. I loved the set design!

If I want to remember anything - phone number, date, etc it must be written down! Because of this, I have been a faithful user of the Filofax for years and years and years. Here she is... Since I am quite particular about everything, the pen with which I scribe is also important. After years of experimenting, some time ago I settled on a blue ink gel roller style. A good example is the Uni-ball vision exact. Never said this would make my handwriting legible...come to think of it, do ya even care?

Yesterday I had a zero productivity level so when I got the text from Ruscha....are you working now? The immediate reply, maybe not what were you thinking? Shopping is the answer, late in the afternoon we headed off to deal central (meant to be a secret) and got to it. I found these fabulous Derek Lam shoes - for over half off the sale price currently at net-a-porter! There were about a quarter inch too tight in the front, I tried and tried, I even started rationalizing, its late in the day my feet are swollen, maybe I can lose 5 pounds (in my feet) but at the end of the day I went home empty handed. Here's a photo so you too can admire their beauty and think about how great they would go with everything in MY wardrobe!

Last week I went to the opening party for the new Prana Shop in Boulder. At the event I noticed these fab shadow boxes (for lack of a better term) mounted on the walls. There was no artist mentioned so I did a little investigating....turns out they are the work of Scott Lyon, brother of Eric Lyon one of the founders of Scapegoat - VERY COOL OUTERWEAR! Here's one of the boxes - to see more jump over to the Porkchop Show , is that one word or three?

Wait its a brownie, no its a cookie! Either way the Late July Dark Chocolate Organic cookie is delicious!!!!
Try them for yourself. And for those of us (mainly me) with no chocolate self control there is a 4 cookie pack to prevent entire box devouring sessions. Yes, its been done before.
Bluebird skies and 60+ here in the bubble so once these tasty morsels digest, I am off for a run. Have a great day.

Yesterday, just in time for Valentine's Day, a package arrived containing Apivita Products - all natural products for the lips, body, hair and face! Needless to say I was excited, especially being the product junkie that I am. I've already tried the multivitamin face caps and the express eye mask. Both were wonderful. I recommend heading over the website and taking a look at their entire product line - click here for the jump
Have a great weekend - I am outtie!!!!

Happy Valentine's Y'all!! Spread some love - look beyond your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend. This whole world could use a lot more love these days.

At this point in my life I am more about selling my furniture (any buyers out there) than purchasing anything. BUT when I do this is first on the list, only been drooling for years. Originally designed in the late 50's the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair, looks modern today. I'll take mine in slightly worn brown leather please, none of these DWR remakes thank you.

When I first read this on Defamer, I felt bad for PHiltie, its mean no matter who you are. But part of me thinks its all fabricated since P was whopping it up with 50 at Sundance.
Speaking of 50. He stayed at the same hotel as I did while at the Sundance FF. On Sunday when it came time for him and his posse to take the 45 minute ride to the airport - these gangstas REFUSED to share cars and demanded they each have their own Cadillac Escalade SUV, mandatory color of black too - 10 in all!! WAY to do your part to help fight global warming yo!

Ever have an amazing experience but its impossible to describe? That's the end result of an impromptu concert by the fabulous singer songwriter Woody Williamson. Woody made his way into the bubble via Laguna/LA and gave me and my dear friend Kimmy a little taste of his sweet and soulful sounds over the weekend. Hello..concert party of two!!! My advice, find out when Woody is in your town and don't miss out!
Posted by Jen Sall at 3:19 PM
I can't seem to wake up today, even after a trip to Vic's and then caffeinated tea. Ugghh - but as soon as I get some info from Woody I will post a little something something...If you are absolutely, completely, utterly bored - jump to Jezebel for their gem of a find - click here - Embarrased for the State of Colorado - enuff said!

I could talk about last nights debate but you've already gotten enough of that, I could mention the insane profits posted by Exxon but it is too disgusting to even begin to comment, I could chat about the Super Bowl...yawn! I give up, I throw in the towel, raise the white flag....I got nada! If something comes up, believe you me, you will be the first to know!
Have a great weekend!!!
