DIFFA at the 2015 Architectural Digest Home Design Show Part 2

We are back for the 2nd part of the DIFFA selections at the 2015 Architectural Digest Home Design Show. It is always amazing how talented these folks are and what imagination they have in design.  
Kravet’s space featured the signature bunnies of its designer, Hunt Slonem. 
I really liked this display, it had so many elements going on  
With the gloomy winter we have had in the Northeast, it was so nice to see so much color everywhere you turned!  

Spin Ceramics designed by Kitty Hawks  
Kitty Hawks designed a space reminiscent of a Japanese tearoom for Spin Ceramics’ table. 
 Designer Corey Damen Jenkins completed Beacon Hill’s table with elegant wall panels from de Gournay.
How gorgeous is this?  
Hermès’s table, under an ornate equine decoration, featured the brand’s new tableware line, Voyage en Ikat. 
This setting from Hermès’s was just really very elegant  
Marks & Frantz created an opera-house-like space for the New York Design Center. 
The green was really a nice change!  
Architectural Digest looked to event designer (and AD special projects editor) Bronson van Wyck for this year’s table, which featured awning fabric by Kravet; a blue Bamboo Trellis tablecloth by Brunchwig & Fils; Campbell House dinnerware, Paris Flea Market flatware, spiral glassware, and cobalt goblets by Bunny Williams for Ballard Design; Salon side chairs by Bernhardt; and an Axel orb chandelier by Currey & Company. 
The red, white and blue colors here just really stood out. I liked this setting very much!  
Echo Design’s kaleidoscopic booth was swathed in the company’s Heirloom India pattern. 
Ralph Lauren Home celebrated its new paints with cheery spring florals. 
I loved the idea of flowers in the paint cans! It really looked so wonderful on the table!  
Ottowa, Canada’s booth, an ode to the capital. 
Sunbrella’s boldly colorful scene was devised by Dransfield & Ross.
This colorful table setting was my favorite! I just love every part of it !

Downy Wrinkle Release Plus Review


I guess you could say one of the "perks" of being a blogger is having the chance to try new products. I am very picky with what I show you, because, it has to be a good quality product. I was contacted by Downy to try their Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus and it sounded interesting. I used to go with someone to the US Open who ironed her tee shirts before wearing them! I am not a person to iron, and I try to purchase clothes that require none, but sometimes you can't help it. 

Any product that makes my life easier, I am ready to try! So, when I gave this a try a few times, I found it worked really well. Downy has always been used in my home, it is a very classic brand. 

The way this works is as soon as you take your clothes out of the dryer, you spray with the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus, tug here and there, and you are wrinkle free! 

The product can also be used for the following: 

Wrinkle Spray
Odor Eliminator
Fabric Refresher
Static Remover
Ironing Aid
Wrinkle Remover
Great for Travel
Try it on curtains, tablecloths, sheets, pillow cases and more

I really like the idea of the travel size as how great to remove wrinkles from clothes while away. I am also excited about their new scent, Crisp Linen, which is exclusive to my favorite store, Target! I hope you will give this product a try if you are looking for an easier way to remove wrinkles than old-fashioned ironing. They also have coupons on their website which makes it even better!

Introducing new Crisp Linen scent!

It's the same Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus you love in a crisp, new scent. New Crisp Linen scent is available exclusively at Target.

Coming in June 2015!

Head to Toe Bag from Beauteque Review


I received an email from the company Beauteque about reviewing some of their products. Being a cosmetic junkie, I was thrilled to try some new items. This company has a focus on Asian skincare and cosmetics. It was started by a 16 year old girl in 2014 who wanted to showcase products to be your best self! They sent me a Head to Toe beauty bag, which you receive products valued at $65.00 to $85.00 but cost under $30.00. I love these kind of bags, as you are always surprised at what you receive!  
I loved the gingham bag which held all the fabulous products for me to enjoy! Tony Moly is a brand I was not familiar with, so I was really excited to see what was in this cute bag!  
Okay, how fun are these items? I just love the tangerine, which is a whitening hand cream which smells amazing! The lips are a lip balm which smells great as well. There are quite a bit of products in that little bag!  
The 2 hearts are pumice stones to keep your feet nice for the spring/summer season. The Tony Moly Lip Primer works very well, keeps your lip color in one place.  
The Black Sugar mask is really amazing for removing all the dead skin cells from your face and making it really shine! They say you should use a scrub mask at least once a week for your skin to be nice and smooth for your make up to be applied.  
Those lips are just too much fun! I also really like the face mask which is that strawberry looking at you! It is 3 steps which helps keep pores clean and smooth. 
Last, but not least, is the hair straight cream from Tony Moly. It is a unique 2 step process to make your hair silky smooth and straight. 

So, what do you think of this Head to Toe bag from Beauteque? Pretty neat products and it is so nice when you can have fun taking care of your skin and body! Their website has loads of products that are just like these, it's a real fun place to shop! The fact that you receive 7 to 8 full size products for under $30.00 is pretty amazing! 

Beauteque has a website for shopping individual items and then the Beautequemonthly.com for the monthly subscription bags. I really like the monthly bags as you can try different products that maybe you would not normally pick up on your own.

Tuesday's Quote of the Day for April 14, 2015

I really loved this one when I found it on the Positive Outlooks Blog. It just makes so much sense. Everything is really up to us as to how we react to things. I find if I am in a good mood, nothing or no one can upset me. We have to look at the big picture, and realize to not let the small stuff get to us. 
Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!!

Paris Baguette

On my last visit to the city, I wanted to get some NYC bagels to take home. I headed to Ess-a-Bagel on 3rd Avenue, only to find it was closed. So on my way to the bagel shop, I saw this place, Paris Baguette, and thought it looked interesting. When I walked in, my jaw nearly dropped. There are so many places in the city that I have yet to visit, and when I got home, it was on my to-do list. A French-inspired Korean bakery chain, with many different flavors of desserts as well as sandwiches. I didn't photograph the sandwiches, but you probably already knew that! 
Are you a bit scared to go in? I hope you are not reading this on an empty stomach! 
I bought one of these to take home and I must say, it was AMAZING! So light and not too 
sweet, I would purchase it again in a heartbeat! 
This looked interesting but I did not purchase one. Has anyone had one of these? 
Okay, here comes the dessert works of art. These are so beautiful, I was in awe. Just awe. 


This one was just so gorgeous, I would love to see how they make it. Green tea and blueberry is 
probably a fabulous combo! 

Not only is this one made with coffee, and looks so darn adorable, but it's 200 calories a 
serving! 



My Mom was such a huge fan of lemon, this one would be for her. I couldn't stop taking photos 
of all these wonderful pastries. 





I liked that they use canola oil in their recipes as that is so much healthier for you. 
I am trying as heck to justify eating a few of these gems! 



Paris Baguette has 7 locations in Manhattan and 1 in Brooklyn. I suggest if you walk by one, run in. They do have brunch, lunch, cold and hot sandwiches in addition to these gorgeous desserts! 
I saw sweet potato cake for goodness sake! This is just such a unique place, really amazing 
selections and I look forward to trying more items as I come across them in the city. 

Have you ever been in a Paris Baguette? What was your favorite item? I would think it would be 
hard to pick a favorite in this bakery!
