Mara Hoffman's campaigns are always a window into her colorful, bohemian and enchanting world. I love how she plays off of the vibrant colors of nature that inspire her collections. This 2012 resort campaign is by far one of my favorites.
I'm also digging how art, nature and technology seamlessly come together in this new spring editorial. In true Mara form, it's all about women opening themselves up to the universe and harnessing their magical powers...while wearing some pretty spectacular dresses.

Each year around the holidays my intentions are always to wrap each gift with care and personal touches. Yet I always find myself in a wrapping frenzy in the days leading to Christmas. This year I plan to put all the pinecones, twigs and acorns we've collected over the last couple of months to good use.

Fall's warm colors are just as cozy inside as they are outside. And while autumnal flowers are pretty extraordinary on their own, fruits and foliage add amazing texture. The ladies from Studio Choo share some great ideas on seasonal flower arrangements in their book The Flower Recipe Book which features step-by-step instructions that follow a recipe format. The instructions are easy enough to follow but also inspire a creative and personal approach to floral design. But really, the pictures alone are reason enough to pick up the book.

As a child Leila Jeffreys rescued birds and wildlife and nursed them back to health. Her love of birds has led her to study and photograph birds in her native Australia and across the world. For Wild Cockatoos, Leila photographed the birds in a traditional studio portraiture, bringing to life their beauty, character and intricacy of their feathers. The details can be truly appreciated in the actual prints, which measure over 3 feet tall.

I love good 'ol basil pesto but I'm also all for experimenting with different ingredients, especially when it involves some of our favorite staples. This arugula pesto has become my new go-to version. It's incredible spread on this caprese grilled cheese. A couple of slices of avocado really takes this sandwich over the top. Seriously, it's beyond delicious.
Check out this pea pesto recipe I shared a while back.

My new year began with a dream where I found myself crossing paths with a friendly fox. It turns out, spirit animals typically show themselves to you in unexpected ways. Foxes have always captured my attention, but not quite like the one featured in the artwork of T.C. Cannon, an artist I came across serendipitously over the weekend. Do you know your spirit animal?

There are a lot of things Madewell does really well. They make great jeans. They capture pattern, texture and detail in a really cool way. And they've got a great eye for finding under-the-radar brands. But what I love most is their knack for pulling it all together in a seriously stylish yet laid-back way. Which is why I'm excited to be a part of the Madewell Style Sessions happening this Thursday at the Garden State Plaza store. Come on down to sip and shop with some cool tunes, special deals and lots of summer style tips. RSVP here. Hope to see you there.

In honor of the amazing experiences motherhood brings, here are some words of wisdom from yogi-mamas on how yoga has helped them be better mothers. They're all great reminders to be present for all of the wonderful moments with your little ones. Happy Mother's Day!
"Yoga has taught me how to take one more moment to attune myself to my son. When I remember to do this, we both experience a profound connection to each other and to ourselves." Elena Brower
"Because of my practice I know that I won't get any moments of this life back and that makes every moment a precious jewel that I keep close and sacred. My drishti is on my boys, like a laser. And that beam of consciousness, like all drishtis lights the way." Stephanie Snyder
"Yoga grounds me and has helped me learn to stay in the present moment, appreciating the miracles that lie before me. I know that the virtues of patience peace and calm are benefits of my yoga practice that I weave into my everyday life as a parent." Latham Thomas
"Yoga teaches us to trust ourselves, to strengthen in some places, and to soften, heal and open in others, to see ourselves clearly, to know ourselves deeply, and to uncover what is true for us. Over the last 20 years, it has taught me to treat myself with compassion, kindness and patience, to be less reactive and more responsive, to listen well, to breathe deeply, and to tap into that limitless well of love and joy we all possess naturally. I feel I'm able to offer those qualities to my children as a result, and to recognize that these two little beings are the greatest miracles in my life. There is no doubt in my mind that I'm a better mom because of yoga." Ally Hamilton
