The Selby

If you haven’t browsed through Todd Selby’s vibrant new book,The Selby is in your place” I highly suggest you do. I first noticed it in a store window a while back (yes bright colors do stop me in my tracks as well as other things) and immediately started browsing through it. I couldn’t put this book down. Todd Selby is a photographer, blogger and fashion celebrity who takes portraits of compelling and creative people including authors, artists, designers, musicians and friends. He goes into their home environment (with their approval of course) and captures their lifestyle in an eclectic, interesting and artful way. Each profile is accompanied by watercolor portraits of his subjects and objects from their homes.  It explodes with rich color, vintage pieces, art, mini interviews and a glimpse of people’s personal spaces such as their lofts, apartments, closets, bedrooms, you name it, he captures it. Todd takes us to New York City, Los Angeles, and other amazing places around the globe. I’ve been very inspired by many of the interior designs and accents in these places and admit to being a bit obsessed with redecorating my place with a few of these unique ideas. It never hurts to spruce up your living space with a few antiques and vintage pieces, Non?  Check out www.theselby.com for further info on the amazing Todd Selby. And Todd if your reading, you can take my picture anytime. – Christina XO

ROAD RAGE GRANDPA

When I was in California this past year I had the luxury of NOT driving…Thanks to my personal chauffeur….My boyfriend. I’ve had my license, not had my license and soon will be getting it AGAIN (fingers crossed). I feel like I’m 16 all over again. Day to day we see people honking horns, cutting people off, not signaling, texting, sexting, chatting on their phones, picking their nose, driving too slow, driving to fast, falling asleep at the wheel and the list goes on and on and on. The very reason why I walk, bike, or trot everywhere. As I was sorting through my L.A pictures I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at this very one. I find this picture so endearing and comical. Grandpa, in the middle of the street on his motorized scooter out for the day, not to mention the bright orange flag giving us the heads up that he’s on the road. It’s priceless and puts a smile on my face. I have a feeling that will be me years down the road. Gosh, I hope no one cut him off. He was a grandpa on a mission. I think he was picking up his lady friend, small enough to fit in that basket. -Christina
