Peek-a-boo we see you. Rachel can no longer hide her bump under yards of silk. You have to admit... she has got a glow to her.

My nieces are obsessed with cinching their shirts with wide black belts and I've got to give them props, it makes their (natural) waistline look teeny-tiny. So, maybe there's something to it. Ladies, here's some chic belts that will help whittle down your waist.

Maybe it has something to do with cutting off all my hair, but I am obsessed with googling starlets with super cute cropped cuts. Here are some of my favorites. How adorable is Ginnifer?

Frosting, marshmallows and creamy centers.. oh my. Last week, I had a perfect little coconut cupcake from Magnolia Bakery. It was so light and lovely. I thought I would share the love and wax poetic about Sprinkles, Crumbs and Magnolia Bakery... why? Because it's Friday and I can't think of anything more important right now then satisfying my sweet tooth, even if it is only through images and taste-bud memories. YUM!

Maryam Nassir Zadeh, is a global delight. Of all the independent boutiques in the Lower East Side (NYC) this one offers something decidedly different, the owners Mayram and Udar (pictured below) concentrate less on labels and more on giving a voice to diverse design perspectives.

Harvey Nichols' selections for Spring are stunning. I love the pinks, peaches, reds and dove grays, they're so delicate without being over-the-top girlie.

Finally, someone has devoted an entire website to peeking into the closets of internationally influential cultural forecasters and documenting the contents, The Coveteur. One of their first guinea pigs is Mona Sharf, director of communications & celebrity for Theory - Helmut Lang. Her collections and inspirations are well beyond drool-worthy.

I am finally back from New York, it was a crazy busy trip, but thankfully I did get a chance to shop. And while in the SoHo I stumbled across the most adorable little flats by Bloch. Now here's the big question, do I need another pair of black flats? Hmmmm, internal struggle.

...but not a drop to drink. I have had a busy 3 days in Manhattan and I have had no time to post. Today, I was at a commercial shoot in the middle of the fashion district and yet the only interaction I had with fashion is the hour I spent at Barney's Coop yesterday where I saw this delightfully pointy number.

Remember Samantha's flower ring in SATC the movie, for me it was one of the highlights of the film. Well, that and the scene with Carrie and Big in the street on their wedding day, Charlotte's face after their confrontation, whoa. Anyway, I found this shiny white enamel flower ring on Forzieri.com and I think it is lovely, it really reminds me of Sam.

Kate Lanphear, Elle's style director, has the most amazing, edgy, punky hair, in fact she was the inspiration for my last haircut. Although, I was a little too chicken to take it as short as she does. But I have another hair appointment tomorrow and I plan to take the plunge. So excited!

Oh Joy! featured this skirt and the minute I saw it I had to know more. Well, lo and behold the designer only sells this skirt at boutiques in Minnesota, so attention all Midwestern divas the whimsical Flynn Skirt by Anne M Cramer can be yours. Imagine a bride-to-be wearing one to her rehearsal dinner, how divine!

Are you a secret tough girl? If you nodded yes then you need to strap on some studs to show the world you can't be messed with. It's a stylish way to tell your foes to, "Back Off".

A dear friend of mine is looking for the perfect black dress for our girls' weekend in Las Vegas. Voilà, I think I've found that perfect dress, albeit Navy. The cut is so flattering, plus I think she could totally get away with wearing a head wrap! Just think about it Mrs. M, I implore you!

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". I have a coworker who expressed utter delight at the thought of getting Chanel's Rose Insolent nail polish. I have to agree with her that Rose Insolent is worth cries of delight, but I also like the softer, subtler Jade Rose. Which one should I get for Spring? I hate tough decisions.

Brrrrr... I will be ice fishing this weekend, my first and most likely last time. But in the spirit of trying everything once (well, almost everything), I promised my husband I would give it a whirl. So, for the next 2 days Incandescent Matter will be on vacation. Look for my next post on Monday morning.

Gorgeous gold cuffs that will dominate your arm. The raw look of #1 and the nod to Gustav Klimt in #4 makes these cuffs true conversation pieces.
