Urban Outfitters joins the NASDAQ 100

Congratulations to Urban Outfitters, Inc. which will be joining the NASDAQ-100 Index.

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Gorgeous! Standing Magnifying Glass set

I simply adore the old-fashioned look of the Standing Magnifying Glass set ($68-$128). I could see these used in so many ways — placed at separate angles on a vanity for a vintage backstage dressing room look; in someone creative’s office placed askew for inspiration; in a den or library for a functional-looking decor piece. From the description it sounds…

Roxy on holiday

roxy on holiday by roxyturtle Unlike many I am a fan of the cold weather. Love snow and the holidays and the cold! But that doesn’t mean I can’t also dream of escaping somewhere warm where the water is clear and the breeze is the only movement for miles. Anthropologie recently unveiled their 2009 resort line and I love several…
