It's Friday. I want to buy myself some flowers. I deserve to have flowers and I don't need anybody else to buy them for me. I'm strong, independent and happy. Life is funny. You meet somebody and then there're gone. Just like that. In two months one can decide that they don't want to spend anymore time with you. Ok, I'm sad. Maybe flowers will cheer me up.

In the wake of the dearly departed shelter magazines, Domino and Metropolitan Home, comes a new era of online magazines. First was Lonny, which I blogged about last week and now there is Rue. Started by a blogger in Chicago (I so wish I could start a magazine too!), Rue is very beautiful, helpful, stylish and fun. Come on! It opens up with Champagne & Sparkles! As I'm nursing a hangover this morning; I proclaim that I am not drinking any alcohol for the next month. You heard it first. Happy Monday or something like that.........

I'm sure all you designers out there got the super exciting news that online magazine Lonny has a new website with archives of rooms for past issues. Although all the past issues are available to browse through, now a digital archive is easy to look though and find lots of design inspiration. Loony has become a good substitute for the dearly departed Domino magazine and the now this new website is making it easier and easier to like it more. There is also lots of pink inspiration which I love! Enjoy my fellow designers!

The Wishbone Chair designed by Hans Wegner in 1949 is being offered for the first time in pink as part of project to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Twenty world famous interior designers designed cushions for this iconic chair that will be auctioned off in NYC on October 7. You can also purchase the chair in pink for the next year at SUITE New York and 20% of profits go to the Breast Caner Research Foundation. What a wonderful idea! I'm in the market for a new chair. I'll have to check it out when I'm in NYC next month to visit my best friend who just moved. I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time there now that she has moved. There are worse places to visit! HAPPY MONDAY!
