AMAZING // these are some of the best shots by the NASA hubble telescope from 2009 (which may I say is one beautifully designed number itself). These enormous pillars of gas and dust that look like billowing storm clouds are actually the result of stars being born.... Gas is good.

BACK IN BLACK//




As great as it is to be away with lovely family; eating and drinking like an out of control swamp monster, nothing feels better than breaking through the clouds and landing at JFK knowing your home. I decided to spend the evening with some tea and a little re-model; I hung my new prints from WONDERWALL, set up my TOBIAS WONG for AREA WEAR wireless light switch, carefully shelved my new blush ceramics I picked up at Salvation Army in Phoenix and positioned my KARTELL acrylic yellow vase amongst it all.... working on a new color story... ah heaven. It's good to be back. I LOVE YOU NY.

ANNALEEJACKSON//


If you live in Chicago and are looking to get your hair played with look no further than one of my best friends in the whole wide world: ANNA LEE JACKSON. Most days you find ANNA inside Salon 110 on Michigan Ave, that is when she is not in NY with KID SISTER on an ELLE shoot, or flying to Tokyo for music fests. She also does weddings, bar mitzvah's, quinceneras, chucky cheese birthday partys... you name it....

I REMEMBER LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY //

I wish I could capture this feeling and make it last forever // Moriarty family Christmas Eve 1986... Too good, the old wood paneled walls of my grandparents basement, the silver tinsel thrown on the tree, the bar with the neon 'OLD STYLE' sign on the wall, the pool table, running up the stairs to look for santa's sleigh in the sky... having the time of our freaking lives. Then my grandpa died (middle by me, I'm the one in the cobalt/blue rugby) and I have spent the past 24 years trying to make Christmas Eve as magical as it was then... I'm glad it lives in my heart. Merry Christmas everybody and love to Grandpa Jack...

What is your favorite memory?
