UK import Sophie Dahl is a triple threat in the world of lifestyle. She's an author - it's in the family blood, the granddaughter of legendary writer Roald Dahl. She's a cook - self taught by incorporating skills and recipes passed down from family. She's a model & fashion "It" girl - discovered in the late 90's by renowned style icon Isabella Blow and known to the modeling world as the plus size girl with the curves.

In December 2007, House and Garden Magazine, a publication known for its lovely blend of interior design and lifestyle, was dissolved by its publisher, Conde Naste. When presented the news, longtime H&G Editor, Dominique Browning, was given 4 days to have the offices and staff cleared out. In those final moments of her 12 year career as Editor, Browning's emotional roller coaster was just beginning to take off, as every speck of H&G identity - pens, paper, and years of hard work - were in the trash.

The NY Times Sunday Magazine has included an article on Browning's journey of self perseverance and professional challenges faced in the 2 plus years since losing her dream job, with excerpts taken from newly published book - Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put on My Pajamas and Found Happiness. Check out her website Slow Love Life for more notes, insights, and info.

In Style Magazine's April 2010 issue includes a Q&A with Rory Tahari - Vice Chairman and Creative Director of the fashion line Elie Tahari. Also included in this post, are previously published photos from Rory and husband Elie's city and country homes. I tend to keep plastic bins full of torn out pages from design magazines - images that inspire me one way or another. I came across the photos of the Tahari's city & country homes from Town and Country, August 2009 and Harper's Bazaar, November 2008.
