My name is Gloria. I scour the high seas of the internet daily to find the cutest, the beautiful, and the most bodacious.

Someone once gifted me a betta fish for my 8th birthday, and although my memory of the event is a bit hazy, I can only imagine that my reaction was THANK YOU BUT I REALLY WISH THIS WAS A PUPPY. Fish swimming around in their closed off aquariums have never been particularly interesting to me, but these incredible photos by Visarute Angkatavanich really smashed that barrier into smithereens! The amount of detail captured in each crystal clear shot is just mesmerizing – these teeny fish look so regal with their elegant fins flowing out like designer gowns! There are a lot more shots in the series, so be sure to check out all the fishy beauties here!
Vibrant colors + modern geometric designs = Monday morning swoonfest! New Zealand artist Jane Denton’s wool embroidery artworks are like framed slices of happiness. Check out her store here!
I imagine cooking a gourmet meal in outer space would look a little something like this incredible photo series by photographer Pavel Becker and art director Nora Luther – fresh ingredients suspended in a stunning mid-air ballet, stubbornly refusing to land in that pot! “Recipe Photography Concept” puts a twist on traditional cookbook photography by focusing on the individual elements and the delicious anticipation of cooking a meal, rather than the picture perfect end result…which works for me because my cooking rarely comes out à la a Stepford wife :-) Unfortunately there’s no real cookbook out, but you can check out more photos from this tasty series here!
Innovative, whimsical, and off-the-charts cray cray are just a few words I would use to describe Kobi Levi’s shoe line. It may not be cheap to own one of these little works of art, but you’ll never have to worry about someone else showing up to an event in the same pair of flamingo pumps, that’s for sure!
If this whimsical photo series by husband-and-wife duo Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida doesn’t put a big ol’ smile on your face this Monday morning, then you should consider just heading back to bed! MINIMIAM reimagines everyday foods as surreal landscapes for teeny tiny figurines to explore and frolick within – golfers tee off with colorful sprinkles, and mountain climbers carefully navigate through the treacherous snowy peaks of merengues. Every shot is so cleverly composed, and a few have made me laugh out loud! Isn’t it amazing how a slightly different viewpoint can turn the mundane into something magical? Click here to check out some more photos from this delectable series!

There are lots of blog posts about finding and accessorizing the perfect bar cart, but what about the most important part? …The booze! I confess that I don’t know much about specific alcohol brands, so I’m always very swayed by packaging—apologies to all the liquor connoisseurs out there—when I’m perusing through rows and rows of shiny bottles. Here are some beautifully designed ones that I would happily feature front and center in our bar at home (and hopefully get a few good cocktails out of them as well)! The shot glass placement on the Fire Fighter vodka is so clever I can’t even stand it.
