Really helpful tips for making flowers last, most of which I’d never heard of before.

Eighteen inspiring decorating quotes.

I LOVED this Cherry Bombe podcast interview (it’s Episode 57) with Christina Tosi, the pastry chef/cake genius behind Momofuku Milk Bar. She’s such a smart and well-spoken person, in addition to being a total creative mastermind in the kitchen.

Design advice from the talented Carrier & Company duo.

Mandy Aftel is a trailblazing perfumer who uses only all-natural ingredients to craft her scents, which is super rare – even luxury brands like Chanel use synthetics in their perfumes. This article about natural versus synthetic scents, Mandy, and her store Aftelier Perfumes was really interesting – I learned a lot and kind of want to read her book now.

Loving these sporty but feminine sneakers.

If you follow me on Snapchat (@jclair24), you may have seen that last weekend I actually attended a show for Fashion Week, which was so exciting! It was my first time seeing a fashion show, and what a good one it was – Monique Lhullier. You can check out the runway looks that I saw here. It was an absolutely stunning show – this and this were two of my favorite looks. Seeing the movement of the pieces really added a whole other dimension, especially when it came to that red gown.

More decorating tips, from nine talented designers.

A peek into the stylish Cuyana studio (ps – totally coveting their chic saddle bag).

The gorgeous interior design and amazing photography both shine in this post about Jacquelyn Clark’s redesign of photographer Heidi Lau’s studio.

Coffee lovers: here’s a tumblr for you.
