There are some good things in this world. For instance... The joy of eating vanilla ice cream while strolling down the pier on the perfect California Spring day or walking barefoot in the grass and feeling the softness of the blades slide between and tickle your toes or coming home to the smell of warm cookies (chocolate chip of course) fresh from the oven and having the aroma invade your senses.
If you agree that these scenarios are in fact good things then you'll agree that "Little Spoon" is equally as good.
Playful and bemusing "Little Spoon" brings a fun loving smile to my lips and an equally frisky swagger to my hips. Right about now you're asking yourself what is this little spoon and where can I get one? Home Goods? Pier 1?... Ha ha. No.
"Little Spoon" is the debut EP from indie artist Lucy and La Mer, releasing April 6th, 2015. These collection of songs make me happy (sing it Pharrell) and if this EP was the sound track for my walk down the pier I'd be skipping and waving my ice cream in the sky!
Three words come to mind while listening to this collection... Delightful, Quirky, and ironically Moody.
Oak Tree, the first song on the EP is the first kiss. You know when you're expressing so much joy that you can't wipe the smile off you face. There is a comfort in the tune. I can't stop tapping my feet.
Rainy Day... the feet keep tapping. This song is Pop Love! A feel good song that will propel anyone out of a funk.
Just Friends and Roomie Wanted are the two tracks that will make you want to put on your Minon Underoos and dance around the living room. And yes they make Underoos for adults, I would know ;o)
Heaven is a better sweet song that will encourage you to remember love and their rendition of the 80's pop song Tainted Love is unnervingly beautiful.
So when do we get the next album Lucy? I guess it's a... Good Thing... that Lucy and La Mer keep us wanted more.
Sustainable design is an important part of keeping the balance in our material world. So these are a few of my favorite wine related creations that aim to inspire and lessen our frivolous waste.
I love cork! So much so that I save almost every cork from every bottle I indulge in. LizzieJoeDesigns makes great use of the unused corks.

It's early morning and I have escaped the brisk spring chill. I sit at my desk warming my insides with a strong cup of organic herbal tea. The glowing computer screen illuminates my eyes as I scroll through the pages of brown dress with white dots (one of my favorite picture blogs). As I scroll I see her soft hand gently clutching his forearm.... A little further and I see a deep navy sky fading into royal blue and grey clouds, the sky glittered with stars.... As I continue to scroll down the page I find myself fixated by something so sensual, a deep desire has sprung forth in my heart. Warn charcoal and chocolate leather with a dusting of tan hue.
