Have I ever confessed my candle hoarding tendencies to y'all? It's becoming a problem. My latest favorite is Ralph Lauren's Joshua Tree. It smells of tobacco flower, patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla and I swear it is heavenly and the perfect Spring scent. I bought it in Palm Beach last month: first, I went to the store, smelled it for a good 10 minutes, resisted and left. Then I went back a few days later and straight arrowed to the candle display and the nearest sales rep. It's the best purchase I made while in Florida, even beating my new Calvin Klein bucket bag I got on super sale at Macy's (although that was quite a score too). Happy weekend!

Bring on summer already! I must really sound like a broken record, but I don't care. I'm longing for sandy feet, cool beers under the hot sun and that feeling of not having a care in the world. And writing about it is somehow therapeutic, like a summer vacation in the Hamtpons is almost within reach.
One of my favorite things about the Hamptons (Montauk in particular) is the decorating style: painted white floors, bright colors and lots of raw natural materials. Textures like straw, wicker, rattan, cowhide, raw linen, grasscloth, jute, raffia, seagrass and rush are prevalent in that part of the world, and now they're popping up everywhere else. Someone once said that you need at least one antique in every room - I'd argue that you need at least one raw natural material item in each room as well. It brings texture and tones the room down a notch to that laid-back easy living we all love. Amiright?

It should come as no surprise that Moda Operandi's General Merchandise Manager and Creative Director of trunkshows Indre Rockefeller has great taste. As it turns out, the colorful and eclectic print-happy vibe we find in our favorite trunkshows are also reflected in her Manhattan home. I'm absolutely mad for her Atsuko fabric draperies and her klein blue cocktail table. How about you?

March is the month where we start desperately waiting for the first signs of Spring: the day we get to trade winter boots for heels of cute flats; the day we can finally let fresh air in the house or open the sunroof in the car; and best of all: the day we can finally throw the first BBQ dinner of the season.
Sadly, these signs come too little and too late so early in the year (except for two years ago in Montreal when we hit a record high of 86 degrees in early March), so we enjoy the littlest moments: the last day of Spring-skiing, the birds chirping in the trees, the snowbanks sloooowly melting away... and of course Spring shopping. How do you celebrate the arrival of Spring?
