Inspiration All Around

Chris Ann was here in Baltimore last weekend for a working, inspiration weekend. What is that, you ask? It is part of our "working culture".  We get together, visit fun places, meet with friends, look for art, fun new finds and of course, eat delicious food and sip on wine.  There is no agenda, other than to be inspired.  We spent the first night at Germano's Cabaret watching my oldest son perform with arts exchange students from London. The rest of the weekend was spent meeting with potential new vendors for LoveFeast Shop, … [Read more...]

It was the first time I tried … [Read more...]

The Bold lip is back on Gucci's Runway and the 60's graphic eye … [Read more...]
