Etsy + West Elm + Me, this saturday

Cancel your plans. Clear your schedule. Come to West Elm on Beverly this Saturday (March 2nd) and buy some awesome Etsy stuff (and meet the designers, artists and yours truly). It’s going to be F.U.N., like the band, only less anthem-y and more meeting new people.


As a bonafide shopaholic, I buy a lot from Etsy, often in the middle of the night or while I’m watching Carrie Diaries. That’s why it’s so dangerous. You can shop at any time of the day or night, and find totally unique and one of a kind pieces that impress your clients and make it look like you are just really good friends with a lot of artists.

So here’s a sneak peek into some of the items you’ll find at the pop-up shop. It’s one day, from 1pm – 6pm and there is limited quantity since everything is handmade.


1. The Sailor by Kelly Kyoko  2. Big Twig Mobile by Kim Baise Mobile  3. The Arrow by Kelly Kyoko 4. Triangle Inca Scarf by Sol del Sur

What’s so smart about West Elm is that the people that run the company aren’t intimidated or threatened by other designers, in fact they embrace them, help them grow and make money and that in turn makes them look good.  With their collaborations they are actually helping smaller artists and designers become more successful — not putting them out of business. Now that, my friends, is good PR and marketing. It makes designers like me want to buy their stuff because they feel less “big box” and “corporate beast” and more modern, boutique, interesting, unpredictable, and constantly evolving. In fact, I tend to always buy their collaborative pieces because they are always very interesting and awesome, but also because they are seasonal so they feel exclusive and short-lived, unlike most big box pieces that you see over and over and over.

1. Book Plates by Krank Press  2. Roly Poly Soap by Fabled Soap Co.  3. Mini Hearts Tea Towel by Sass and Peril

All the artists are L.A. based, which is very exciting because it means that maybe we can be friends and maybe they’ll come to my birthday parties looking and acting all eccentric and then people will think that I’m very interesting.  I’ll be all, “Oh hey friend. This is my new friend, Steve who has changed his name to ‘Mother’ (true story) and is a performance artist and a dog whisperer.”

1. Sweet Grapefruit Soy Candle by pommes frites 2. I Heart Earrings by Upper Metal Class  3. AWESOME by The Iron Curtain Press 4. Solid Maple Wood Cutting Board by Dominik Woods

It’s a lot of jewelry, accessories, art, stationary, candles, soaps (but pretty ones, not weird craft party ones), and pots, etc.

Spread the word, people. I want everything to sell out and for these designers and artists to get rich!!!!

P.S. This is not a sponsored post and I’m not getting paid. I just like both of these companies a lot.  :)

  1. When I work with tourists from Britain, they talk about two Sikhs. One is Monty Panesar and the second is Fauja Singh. I feel proud of their achievements. Thanks to Fauja singh ji for bringing glory to all Sikhs.

  3. He walked over to the white cubes and tapped them with his wand; good, solid wood. Then he ran his fingers along his wand-and it vanished. Reaching down he turned the cubes, one by one, to face the audience, showing that they were foursided and open at both ends. Black outside, white inside and on the edges. His wand reappeared in his hand and he ran it through the opening of each one.

  4. “For a young man, yes. But for a young women they are as safe as they possibly could be on this despicable planet. Prepare yourself for a temporary sex change. I pity the thug that tries to get smart with this particular young lady. Shave your legs while I get you some clothes.”

  5. My man of 6 months now is 11 years older than me. It’s great because I don’t want kids and previous relationships have hit problems when the guy sort of suddenly wanted kids and I didn’t. Now I’ve found someone who has got that aspect out of the way (and doesn’t expect me to look after them either, does too good a job himself) and things are going really well. The only thing is that because I look younger than I am (I am 30 but people always think I’m 24 or so) he is a bit paranoid about being judged by others. Plus I have occasionally put my foot in it, he was moaning about a sore back one day and I said “oh my poor old man” – he didn’t like that! ;)

  6. It’s such as you find out my thoughts! You peer to comprehend much about this specific, such as you wrote the novel inside it something like that. I think that you could use some Per-cent drive an automobile the material dwelling a little, however aside from that, it is excellent blog. A great go through. I most certainly will definitely be back.

  7. I’m a “mc” myself or more exactly an “O’ ” lol or atleast there was an O before Ellis island. I have heard stories about our family being descriminated against in NYC and before he started driving for the Irish mob (!) my great grandfather worked under an assumed name to avoid the “Irish need not apply”. I have close friends who are Irish twins and find nothing wrong with the term. My newborn son resembles a leprechaun and my cousin’s nickname is Leppy lol. People should be proud of the adversity and stereotypes our families overcame and not take themselves too seriously…. Which is also an Irish trait.

  8. One last trip back in the storeroom, where I carefully hid the bonds among the stationery. I slid some ancient forms in front of them, then I was done. The bonds would be safe there until I came to retrieve them. Or, depressingly gloomy thought, they would remain concealed forever if I made any mistakes.

  9. After success with the aforementioned hit “No More” and other classics like “Playas Gonna Play,” the group had some issues that they couldn’t work out via choreographed dance; Naughton eventually left, citing “tension” and “mistreatment.”

  10. I managed a few hours sleep and awoke feeling a bit better. After a picker-upper pill I felt better still. As I did, first thing every morning, I checked my bank account. The expected four million from Chaise had not come through. But there was a message.

  11. The camera lens whirred and my image on the screen was joined by a dark-skinned man in a green suit who was apparently talking to me. Only he wasn’t there. I mean in the room with me-but he was on the televised image. Which meant that he was just a computer-generated image of a reporter. They saved a lot of money this way.

  12. “I couldn’t agree more.” A bubbly porcine snore sounded from the direction of Gloriana’s basket. “Let us emulate that dear creature and get a good night’s sleep. I think we are going to need it.”

  13. “We probably will, eventually,” I said. “But they seem to be as much use as doorstops on Fetorr. For the time being we will just have use our own brains-which were around long before the electronic ones were invented.”

  14. The shoes style, that is used by Lady Gaga has been popular even from the eighteenth century, the name of the style is “Armadillo”. The actual support from celebrities like Lady Gaga for this style has contributed to a bigger popularity of this type of shoes.

  16. During videofluoroscopic swallowing studies performed in the lateral view, the arytenoid cartilages are seen to elevate and approximate the down folding epiglottis, effectively closing the supraglottic larynx and protecting the airway. This mechanism may be incomplete or delayed in patients complaining of dysphagia and may lead to “penetration” of bolus material into the airway. This study evaluates the timing of supraglottic closure relative to the arrival of the bolus at the upper esophageal sphincter in 60 young control subjects and in 63 elderly control subjects without dysphagia. Event timing was measured in 0.01 s intervals from videofluoroscopic studies for two liquid bolus size categories. Results of the analysis revealed that, in most individuals, the arytenoid cartilages approximate the epiglottis prior to the arrival of the bolus at the upper esophageal sphincter. However, in both bolus size categories, there were individuals who achieved complete supraglottic closure after the bolus had arrived at the sphincter, but never greater than 0.1 s later. No delay in the timing of supraglottic closure relative to bolus arrival at the sphincter was found in the elderly subject group compared with the young subject group. The information from this study has allowed us to objectively determine if supraglottic closure timing is delayed in patients with dysphagia and to address any delay with strategies and exercises designed specifically to correct the delay. A case study is presented to illustrate the clinical significance of this study.

Long Island native, Elle, celebrity manicurist to Jennifer Lopez and Leighton Meester, was so inspired by the Noon By Noor Fall 2013 Collection that she opted for nails that would complement the look, rather than compete with it.
