Stomping Ground


Have I ever posted that I love shoes? Of course I’m being absolutely fallacious as I have regularly posted my obsession with shoes (amongst other items). I came across the marrying of two gorgeous loves – beautiful architecture and shoes! United Nudes, an Amsterdam based shoe designer store developed was founded by Rem D Koolhaas […]

I want a new MacBook Pro! As much as I love my current one – it’s starting to look scratch up and marks everywhere…I need something to beautify it somehow!

There will be several coffee flavors, including Cafe Latte, Cappuccino, Caramel Macchiato, Mocha Latte and Americano […]

Saks 5th Avenue is known not only for their high end offering of fashion but their gorgeous ad campaigns. Marian Bantjes conceptualized beautiful designs for their Christmas 2008 season. This summer campaign continues the series […]
