Pink Multi Jutti Flats

Have you visited TOMS lately? There are so many delicious patterns and designs coming out! I love these flats with textile detailing on the toes. Pair them with cropped jeans, a slouchy white tee and over-sized tote for a cozy weekend shopping the farmer's market look. To boot, TOMS continues to give one pair to a child in need for each that you purchase.

The Average American in 2050


National Geographic has pulled together a stunning set of images portraying what the average American will look like in 2050, per the US Census. The theory is that specific races will blend together over the years and will no longer be distinct. The features are absolutely stunning  I can't stop looking at them!


It's hard to imagine, in a culture that has struggled for generations with the topics of race and segregation, that we are moving in in this direction so rapidly. When I consider the couplings within our social circle, we are generally paired to our roots. The Indian couples. The Chinese couples. The Jewish couples. My husband and myself both have 50% Serbian heritage. We do also have British/Dominican and other mixed pairs, but it doesn't feel as dominant in the trend as the Census suggests. However, living in New York, we have cultural divides between neighborhoods held together by different languages and values to maintain one's heritage. Very possibly New York shouldn't be considered  a good litmus test. Read more at National Geographic.

Bearfruit Succulents


Succulents, pastels and Ball jars? It's a beautiful cocktail, no?  Bearfruit Succulents are crafted to order with chalk paint. Available in singles or collections, I'm eyeing this pair for my apartment:


Simple, elegant and laced with memories of making blackberry jam in childhood summers- these would also make a gorgeous Mother's Day gift.  Purchase at Etsy.

Have a Beachy Weekend!


We're celebrating our Two-Year Anniversary this weekend! It's amazing to think of all of the adventures we embarked on across the globe in a small window of time!




We've decided to stay in dog-friendly B&B in Port Jefferson, Long Island, where we celebrated our marriage with our favorite people. I'm a little nervous to see the Danford Inn where we set-up camp for the wedding, as the last time I saw it was once the news being swallowed by the waves from hurricane Sandy.


I hope you're weekend is gorgeous! What are you getting into? Keep up with our rediscoveries over the weekend via my Instagram: keisharose10038.

Fox Decanter & Glasses

These five foxes are looking at you! From Biscuit, this decanter set is fun way to add personality to your home bar. With gold rim detailing and the focused gaze of the fox, all you need is a large cube of ice and a splash of bourbon. If you're all squared away with your bar ware, I love these for a hostess gift as well. Cheers!

Cuyana Turkish Robe


It's one of those Mondays, when a cozy robe and a trip to the Wall Street Bath & Spa sounds pretty appetizing. I love this simple and lightweight design from Cuyana. The stripes add a dash of sporty to your walk between the steam room and the cold tub. Wishlisted!

Childrens Bedroom's from Around the World

Photographer James Mollison created an eye-opening series of photos of children's portraits adjacent images of their bedrooms. Called Where Children Sleep, the inspiration stems from Mollison's thoughts on his own childhood bedroom and what the details interpreted about him. The diversity, while not surprising is eye-opening and humbling:

Alex, 9.  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil



Bilal, 6.  Wadi Abu Hindi, West Bank.




Anonymous, 9. Ivory Coast




Bikram, 9. Melamchi, Nepal.




Risa, 15. Kyoto, Japan.




Pretty stunning, no? View more of the series at Mollison's webpage.

Have a Cozy Weekend

Hello Weekend! It's been a short work week for me (don't you love that?). What are you getting into? I'm excited to wake up  early on Saturday morning and finish reading The Goldfinch in bed. While navigating through the delicious pages, I can't help but speculate that there is deeper connection to the cultural idiosyncrasies woven through pages to New Yorkers. My gran plans to read it and come back to me on my thoughts.

Hose Water Bottle

If your childhood was anything like mine- it involved late night games of Kick the Can with the neighbors, building tree houses and drinking ( /spraying each other) from the hose. How funny is this water bottle? Crafted from glass, the bottle features a long, twisting hose by illustrator Ray Fenwick. I would like one.
