In bed with Zac Posen

Rumours of Zac Posen's failing business have certainly been squashed with this new project....  Pozen has been commissioned to fashion the interiors of the "The Model Apartment", a new Manhattan apartment building in Chelsea, designed by architect Morris Adjimi.   The 2 - 3 million dollar apartments are to open this month and considering we are already obsessed with his clothes, I don't think it will be a huge jump to fall in love with his cushions and carpet.

This amazing home belongs to designer Caitlyn Wilson from Style Files blog.  The Dubai based home is stunning and currently offering me plenty of inspiration for my own abode.

Look at Elle McPherson in these photos!  She looks completely flawless.  It was the day of her now infamous Louis Vuitton revival.  I'm in awe.

These are the things capturing my attention on the world wide web this week:

1.  Lady Gaga and Beyonce

3. Cheap and Chic ways to update your bathroom.
As a recent renovator I found this particularly interesting.  It is surprising how far a few candles, some interesting small floral arrangements and some pretty packaging on toiletries can go.  Click here to read more

I just can't get enough of the little guy!  However, I am strangely conflicted about the whole thing... last time I checked, living creatures should not miraculously come back to life after 3 days unless they are possessed in some way.

5. The Time Traveler's Wife
I'm reading this amazing book at the moment after stealing it off my flat mate.  
I have seen the movie twice and both times I cried like a baby.

I have been loving Jessica Hische for a while now but only just discovered her Daily Drop Cap project.  Every day she designs a new letter of the alphabet.  Gorgeous!  And you can use them on your own blog too!

One of Sydneys leading celebrity chefs, Luke Nguyen had a big night on Tuesday night with the launch of a new restaurant at Sydney's Star City, enticingly named Fat Noodle.

Nguyen is also the head chef and operator of Red Lantern restaurant (one of my favourites in Surry Hills ) and has expertly mixed Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Malay influences to create a new eatery which is sure to become the new night spot of choice....Especially for when you have had a few too many with your friends and need something to munch on late at night. 

I'm a particular fan of the Salt and Pepper Silken Tofu, and the Fat Pho Noodles with beef broth, thinly sliced Angus Sirloin and fresh aromatic spices (Luke's signature dish).  Delicious!

I was lucky enough to attend the opening on Tuesday night and the place looked fantastic.  Hope you like the pics.
