Heaven, thy name is Tord Boonjte

While gazing at the other lovely (and expensive) items for sale at the Museum of Modern Art design store with a friend the other day, I not only came across these adorable rings by Soop:

(which are meant to be stacked to create cute little farmyard scenes), but also the most amazing ceiling light I've ever seen. Even the name is perfection.

Behold: the Midsummer Light by Tord Boonjte

It's made of durable paper in all sorts of flowery, forest-y shapes and comes in yellow/green, red/white, purple/white, and just white. It's whimsical and delicate and so different. I think when I finally get a permanent apt. this is gonna have to be hanging over my dining room table.

Oh, here's another thing: The MOMA store has it priced at ~$100, but I found another site that has it for only $56:

I think Titania would approve of it.

Elizabeth and James

Ok, confession time: I admit, I do like the Olsen twins' style (not the bag lady look from a few years ago, mind you), and while I didn't quite get their line The Row, which is just expensive t-shirts basically, I love their latest line, Elizabeth and James.

It's effortless and feminine with just a slightly modern touch.

Ok. There are some things that can be passed up.

And then there are others....

Well...if you haven't tried the deliciousness that is S'Mac (Sarita's Mac n Cheese) in the East Village, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

It's bascially an all mac n cheese place where you can pick and choose your own toppings to make your own perfect little creation. They have 14 kinds of cheese including chedder, goat cheese, pecorino and gruyere, and a bunch of other add-ins like hot dogs, fresh basil, chicken, scallions, andouille sausage and even figs. To make it even more amazing they also have whole wheat pasta AND gluten-free pasta. You can make your own combination, or choose from one of their amazing recommended combos.

My favorites:

All-American: the perfect blend of american and cheddar. Simple and delicious.

Cajun: "If you are looking for some kick, here it is. Cheddar & Pepper Jack cheeses, andouille sausage, green pepper, onions, celery, garlic and, of course, some genuine Cajun seasoning."

Masala: with Indian spices

and Mediterranean: "Be swept away to the Mediterranean Sea - Goat cheese, sauteed spinach, kalamata olives, and roasted garlic. You can almost feel the breeze from the water..."

Ok, so it's not exactly health food, but I always get the whole wheat pasta, and they even have Lite Cheddar, so you don't have to feel SO bad...right?

P.S. they offer a sampler of 8 of their recommended combos.

I might just die right now.
