Artist: Christine Berrie

How adorable are these colored pencil drawing by Glasgow based artist Christine Berrie? Great retro subject matter and I really like the fact that the pencil strokes are visible, giving a slightly raw texture and playful look....more here in her etsy shop.

Hotel : Basico

This boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya has an industrial chic ambience and a stunning beach-side view....and at $160-330 US a night, fairly reasonable for a hotel of this caliber . More info at Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Artist : Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini

Daniela has won many awards for her illustration work, and rightly so. These fairy tale images are enchanting and nostalgic without being overly naive.Visit her site here.

Fashion: Iis of Norway

I love the contemporary spin on these beautiful norwegian sweaters by mother and daughter team Iis of Norway. Shame they're not available Stateside ( at least not that I could find), but let's hope they will be soon. More on their site.

Artist: RedMeg

These colored pencil and watercolor drawings of every day items by RedMeg are utterly charming. Her attention to detail and choice of subject are right on the money..More seen here.
