What’s A Fishes Eddy?

Happy Sunday!

Usually I hate the end of the weekend, but I have a lot to look forward to! For one James Franco and Anne Hathaway are hosting the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. The Black and White cookie I picked up yesterday and a mini-vacation at the end of this week. I know it doesn’t sound that exciting, but I have been so busy lately, it’s the little things that I look forward too!

In my recent adventures in Manhattan I wandered into Fishes Eddy. Unfamiliar? Well, you’re in for a treat. Whether you just browse the website or stop in to shop around the 889 Broadway store there are lots of treasures to discover! I snapped a picture of a very adorable mug:

Isn’t that ADORABLE? Not only do they have a Man & Woman image but a Man & Man and Woman & Woman image. Equality and cute mugs for the win! This would make the cutest little wedding or engagement gift. Actually anything on their site would make a sweet wedding gift! I’m lusting after this coffee set:

Adorable!! They use the “Brooklynese” of the words, so instead of coffee, it’s “cawffee”. They look so unsuspecting too! Of course I don’t have a coffee pot let alone a place to put this set so I will have just have to wait! I’m basically obsessed with this store and hope to visit again! I only picked up a multipurpose glass on this visit for iced tea, but they have LITERALLY everything, especially if you don’t like to dig around antique fairs/stores they have some items in milk glass that look retro and are really fun.

Do you pick out dishes and other housewares online too? I hope you don’t get too lost browsing their website, I’ve picked out about 50 items that I want for my future apartment. I’m off to do some school work, but I have some more posts coming your way this week!

Crunch Time

You know exactly what I mean don’t you.

It’s that time again, the time every college student dreads, finals! Honestly this is probably one of my easiest since freshman year, but it probably just feels that way. I am excited to be finished with this semester because next semester all my classes pertain to my major and not to mention my internship! Which is near to the Topshop Manhattan store… yup my wallet is in trouble.

I don’t talk much about honeymoons on here because well, if I plan weddings I don’t have much to do with the honeymoon, so what do I do? Dream about mine of course. Now after typing the word two times, I am dying to know where it comes from, it is a rather funny word. I did some research and by research I mean I looked up in Wikipedia the etymology of the word “honeymoon”. It comes from a tradition where the Indian elite would do a bridal tour after their marriage.

Interesting! Well, if any of you know me I often say my next adventure across the Atlantic would be to Iceland. I think it is so amazing and beautiful. If you don’t believe me just look at these honeymoon shots from OMG I’m Getting Married.

That view is to die for! I could just imagine how pretty it looks in real life. You have to check out the other pictures, while I’m not loving her hair, her use of teal shoes is awesome, definitely one of my favorite colors!

I really wanted to show you a picture of my Christmas tree in my room but last night it toppled over and it broke 4 ornaments! I was super bummed especially since I had to clean it up, but hopefully I will upload some images of it in a couple of days! I also have an exciting how-to (yay crafts) for you guys too in the upcoming weeks! This is one of my favorite times of the year! What are your plans for the winter? Do you have any exciting traditions?
