Small Batch Production for a Frenchified Kitchen

I love making small batches of baked goods at home – you know, where you make a huge chocolate chip cookie recipe, freeze three-quarters of it, and then bake a few cookies fresh every night.

Stationery Staple: Pencils from Write With Moxie

When it comes to plain old pencils, there’s not much out there that straddles the cute/adult divide.

Orrefors by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld is the master image maker. The white hair slicked back in a ponytail, black, studded driving gloves, angular white collar, black suit, silver chains, and black sunglasses – it’s all fashion for the sake of defining a personal image. There’s nothing utilitarian about it. I mean, let’s face it, when was the last(…)
