modcloth

February 26, 2010

I’ve recently spotted this great online store and decided to share it with you. May be I’m doing it to my greater lose since I’d like to keep this jewel to myself as among other great stuff  ModCloth sells one of a kind vintage clothes and accessories. and those guys go FAST. Good thing, you can RSS the products and be the first one to grab it.

Founded by high school sweethearts in 2002, now it’s a full volume online store featuring vintage-inspired cloth by indie designers, accessories and other fun stuff for the retro lovers.

Anyways, look at what we’ve already missed on the true vintage section. But don’t be sad, click here for PLENTY of amazingly cool stuff, that would keep you browsing forever.

aircruise in a floating hotel?!

February 20, 2010

How would you like to take a cruise in a air-hotel?! If this design concept will come to reality, we would be able (or at least the wealthy ones) to have and amazing experience of sky cruising in a new luxurious resort.

The Aircruise is a radical new design that promises to accommodate guests in a 265-meter tall hotel that could float above city skylines or over dramatic landscapes according to its designers at Seymourpowell.

It’s not a simple plane to get from A to B as fast as possible but for those you would like to enjoy incredible city and landscapes and relax in the  luxurious apartments with the breathtaking views. Too bad only 10 apartments will be available for rent.

Are you ready to slow down and enjoy ride of your lifetime?!!

Tour the Aircruise here

Today I can’ help but remember the beautiful quote from our Wedding thank you note:


We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.

crystals in vegas

February 10, 2010

On this last trip to Vegas I, unfortunately, didn’t have a chance to browse through the new Aria hotel (I’m coming back in a few weeks, so check back for the Aria post), but judging by the exterior it must be something spectacular. I did have a chance though to check out the new shopping center right at the foot of it. 

Designed by internationally renowned architects Studio Daniel Libeskind and David Rockwell, Crystals is the combination of luxurious trends both in clothing and food. What stopped my eye on it among all this sea of steel and glass is the tremendously lighted and sculptured ceiling of the Tiffany store (on the very left above). To my huge disappointment I later found out that the ceiling and the graceful winding stair lead to the Tiffany’s customer service offices and 95% of visitors won’t even get to there while shopping. So it’s like the hidden treasure.

So here are a few pictures that I snapped while there.

And here I am again…ruining a New Year’s resolution to post at least once a day. But juggling the final project presentation, Vegas trip and my husband’s anniversary party planning are reaching the limit of my capacity. So the  B-day is tomorrow and here’s my inspiration for the cake. Obviously, Ilia is a soccer player and a HUGE fan as well.I hope the cake will come out great to cheer him up on this big day.

Ooops, HONEY don’t read this post! It’s a surprise! Love you.
