20 Calendars to Kick off 2018

2018 calendar round upOne of my favorite things about the new year is the need to buy a new calendar! I like to have a wall calendar above my desk at home and a desk calendar for work. Not only does this help me keep track of the day today, but it is also a perfect way to add a little pop of art into your life. All the more reason to make sure you buy a lovely calendar! We’ve scavenged the internet to find a handful of beautiful calendars to kick off 2018, all Lars approved. It’s the perfect thing to start the new year off on the right foot. Did we mention they make great gifts? Everyone needs a calendar!

Take a peek at the full list below!

Eccentric Glamour poster and bookmark

Eccentric Glamour poster and bookmarkHi readers! Have you been enjoying Eccentric Glamour? We’re hoping that even if you don’t live in NYC, (where you miiiiight be able to impersonate the Queen of England or wear a gold leotard with a mauve fanny pack) you’ve picked up a helpful tip or two from Simon Doonan! Here are a few discussion questions and more fun reading suggestions. This month’s amazing printable was illustrated by our featured illustrator of the month, Carolyn Suzuki, who we interviewed last week. She illustrated one of her favorite interviews in the book, the inimitable Lynne Yaeger, a contributing fashion editor at Vogue, along with a quote from the author, “Eccentricity is the oxygen that invigorates a happy creative life!”  Read more about Carolyn here and print off the poster and bookmark below!Eccentric Glamour poster and bookmark Read on →

Our France itinerary

It’s been a few weeks since our trip to France and as we’ve been cooking on all 4 cylinders since, what with the One Room Challenge and all of our holiday content, not to mention some upcoming big projects (stay tuned!), but I’ve now hunkered down to share our itinerary because if you ever get to the chance to plan a trip to France I’d highly recommend so many things that we did. They took my breath away. I mean, look at my face here! That’s the look of pure joy (and it’s all staged because we’re pulled off to the side of the road 😉 )  Because we were there for a wedding, it took us to a part of the country that I’ve always wanted to go to but hadn’t prioritized yet. It was a life-long dream really.

Instead of creating a comprehensive Paris guide, I’m just noting a few bucket list items that may or may not be the Eiffel Tower. You can find those in all tour books. These are worth it, but not mentioned as often. Here we go!
