I have been a devoted fan of Shaker architecture and design since I first visited the round barn at Hancock Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in the late 1980's. This Shaker box by Hender Scheme rendered in thick leather is every bit as gorgeous as the classic cherry wood designs made by the original craftsmen,
Finally a fool-proof easy to use brow corrector that is my new must have essential. Made in France, B Brow delivers easy application, a dreamy formula with peppermint floral water and peach extract, and even an extra tip! I keep one on me at all times. A little mascara, a slip of lip stain, and B Brow is all I need for a quick morning routine and for refreshing a mid-day face.
Ah, spring in New York.... the perfect time to visit MoMAs sculpture garden where you can spend a quite afternoon outdoors amid the stars of their collection. The current installation brings together a selection of sculptures from the Museum’s collection made in the 1960s. Included are David Smith’s Cubi X (1963), an abstract construction of stainless steel geometric forms that evokes the human figure, and Alexander Calder’s Sandy’s Butterfly (1964), a 13-foot-tall colorful steel sculpture with a mobile top that the artist gave to MoMA in 1966. These works join longtime Sculpture Garden inhabitants, such as Barnett Newman’s Broken Obelisk (1967). Favorites like Pablo Picasso’s She Goat (1950) and Aristide Maillol’s The River (1943) will remain on view alongside these works from the 1960s.
After dominating the market for upscale, heirloom, hair accessories, Sylvain Le Hen has outdone themselves with a simple hairpin. Perfect for a top knot in a surprising and gorgeous silver/black, this beauty is made in France and designed for comfort. Buy several, one for your bag, your car, and your office. (It looks and works so much better than a standard No. 2 pencil.)
At just 31 miles long and 16 miles wide, it’s hard to believe such a small island can command a big space on the global travel stage. Home to such a variety of cultures Singapore one of the most unique and fascinating stops in Asia. I want to go for the rainbow painted colonial buildings of Little India to the high-rise glass sky scrapers in the Financial district, but I know I would want to stay because despite its rich history, it has an identity unto itself that is still being defined.
