Adeline Adeline is a bicycle boutique situated in New York City that sells some really pretty bikes. There is something kind of fun but romantic about strolling into town on a vintage inspired bicycle like these. They bring cycling back to where its not only for taking you to point A to point B, but for a relaxing ride for pleasure. I will need to spruce up my cycling skills before I invest in something like this but for now, I will continue dream.

I haven’t done a IWTF (I Want that Friday) post in a while. Not because there isn’t anything I don’t want, because trust me, I am the princess of materialism, but because I just haven’t gotten around to it. So for old times sake, this is what I want this Friday.
Simple, pretty, and gotta love the gold. I don’t generally use a mousepad since I am always found on the couch with my laptop burning my thighs but if I were to be more conventional and sit at a desk, I would want this to accompany my magic mouse. The pad is designed/made by Susan Peterson, the talented lady behind Freshly Picked (best known for those famous baby moccasins worn by the Kardashian babies) and you can buy it here. You can also find the coordinating pencil holder at her shop as well.

I have been kind of a fan of Bri Emery’s every since I discovered her blog, DESIGN LOVE FEST about 6 months ago. Her loft was recently photographed by the talented Bonnie Tsang for Rue Magazine and I was pretty excited to see the behind the scenes of this busy blogger. Her eclectic home is vibrant, youthful, and whimsical and it’s definitely reflective in her fashion and design sense. I want her closet and if I had an iPad, I would want that case. See more from this photo shoot + behind the scenes video here.

If I ever decide to host a dinner party (which is very unlikely as I do not cook), I plan to go all out. How precious are these name cards? I always wanted to see my name in…pasta. A lot of time sorting, arranging, glue, patience and love must have been put into them. They would also make for a nice take away.
