trephin salon.

June 7th, 2010 · Comments Off on sherwin-williams paint chip ice cream sundae advert.

  Over the weekend I received the July issue of Architectural Digest — if you’re a Cher fan, you’ll want to pick up this copy, she gives a tour through her new LA duplex apartment, which overlooks the city and was designed by Martin Lawrence-Bullard. However, it actually wasn’t the intimate look inside the diva’s new Buddhist […]

evian lives young with more dancing babies.

June 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on evian lives young with more dancing babies.

Do you remember the Evian campaign a few year’s ago that parodied the film Bathing Beauty and featured more than 60 babies performing aqua aerobics while singing “Bye-Bye Baby?” No? Well, that’s OK, because you can watch it again here. Pretty cute huh? Since the original ads were such a huge success, Evian decided to […]

toyota prius "harmony" commercial.

May 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments

If you haven’t caught the new commercial for the third-generation Toyota Prius, allow me to introduce you . . . It’s a visual thrill ride through gardens and meadowlands composed of Anne Gedes-esque, costumed humans, who move in a choreographed  “wave” as the Prius passes by.

1) Madonna and her photo sess, “Blame It On Rio,” with photographer Steven Klein, featured in W magazine, March 2009. Next month’s magazine features a 46-page spread of the pop queen and should be purchase worthy. Klein captures her looking all sorts of fabulous —  her hair style/color should be incorporated into her every day […]

gift idea: vintage posters.

December 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on gift idea: vintage posters.

I’m a bit of an over achiever when it comes to gift giving. I think it’s important to be extremely thoughtful — no one wants to receive something they won’t put to use — and I try hard to give gifts that won’t be relegated to the hall closet once opened.  If you know your […]
