I Want It - Office Furniture and Organizing Gadgets

I am not sure if you guys know about Fancy. If you don't it is basically this website that you can sign up to if you are into design oriented products and fashion. I get e-mails from them about every two days with pretty cool ideas for gifts and other stuff. Today's email was about organization and I came across some pretty cool stuff that I thought I should share because it just seemed like the right thing to do. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these products as much as I am, dreaming that I will be able to own them in the near future.

Too Good To Pass Up

I got this lovely quote from Pinterest but unfortunately got blocked from going to the original site where it was posted because of security certificate stuff. Anywhoo I thought some of you might get a kick out of it and perhaps even relate to it.
normal... LOVE THIS!!!!!!

Quote Day - Don't Rush

I found this one on Pinterest and it came at a much needed time. Lately I have found myself wanting resolution on a lot of issues in my life and have had less patience than I should. This was a great reminder to just take a step back and let things happen the way they need to instead of forcing the change.

Clear your mind here

My Love Affair with Coney Island

Ever since we moved to Brooklyn my daughter has had an obsession with Coney Island and I in turn have had to be the one to accompany her to visit this gritty Brooklyn enclave. To most Coney Island is equivalent with a carnival atmosphere and seediness. Although this is still true on the most part, this area has undergone some changes lately which have really changed this seedy perception I had of it myself. For one there are more food options available than just funnel cakes or Nathan's (although no visit to Coney Island is complete without going to this eatery which is getting close to it's 100th birthday). The other aspect of change for this area has been the facelift its boardwalk is undergoing with the addition of the Carousel and more play areas for children as well as revamped lighting for its famous parachute tower. My daughter and I spent some time there this weekend having a little mom and daughter time. We went to Luna Park and had fun going on rides and trying to make fake frogs jump onto Lilly pads. Then we went to the beach for a little before ending up at Nathan's for dinner (of course). Here are some pictures I took this time around.
