first stop, switzerland!

Psssssst, calling all nail polish connoisseurs – this fall OPI is embarking on a European tour and its first stop is Switzerland!

“From the spiky peaks of the Alps to the chateaus of Lucerne the famous Bern bears, the rooftop of Europe was the inspiration for the 12 decadent shades that make up the ubiquitous nail lacquer’s Fall 2010 color collection.”

The cheeky shade names call to mind Swiss mainstays, like Glitzerland, a cool gold, Yodel Me on My Cell, a deep blue, Diva of Geneva, a vibrant pink red, and Color So Hot it Berns, a warm red.

The new collection will be available in August 2010 and will retail for $8.50 each.

Done and done.

A little lazy romance on this oddly rainy LA summer day. Hope it’s much nicer wherever you are.

p.s. do you think Kate cooks? She looks good in the kitchen, just saying.

recipe: avocado, shrimp, and endive salad

Making this salad was inspired by 2 things: Martha Stewart’s July 2007 issue and Shakuhachi’s spring/summer 2010 collection (pictured). Obviously.

Both the dish and the collection are organic and light, laid back yet put together. They are transitional from the beach to a girls lunch and above all, they’re mad fresh.

How to: Avocado, Shrimp, and Endive Salad

You will need:
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 medium Belgian endives, leaves separated, larger ones cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
20 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 1/2 ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh tarragon
*serves 4
