georgetown cupcake

Inspired by their grandmother—and following their passion—sisters Katherine and Sophie founded Georgetown Cupcake in 2008, in Georgetown.

Recent expansion plans include locations in Bethesda, Boston and Soho—which is the first outside the DC metro area.

Located near CB2 Soho on Mercer Street, all goods are baked on site daily—using stellar ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and Valhrona Cocoa powder.

Stars of the TLC series DC Cupcakes, watch for their new book Sweet Celebrations which is scheduled for release in October.

Thanks to cory and ben at CB2 soho—who love their cupcakes!—for this submission and photos.

Fashion Week in New York promises to provide excitement via color, pattern and style. First held in 1943 to keep attention stateside during wartime, Fashion Week happens twice a year—in February to show ‘Fall’ fashions, and in September to show ‘Spring’ of the coming year.

Lincoln Center has become a hot-spot since it hosts Mercedes-Benz® Fashion Week but events happen all over the city. If you’re out of town, catch the scoop at Fashion Week Daily.

And look for Fashion’s Night Out events across the country.

century of the child: new york

photo by: Rusty Darbonne What: Century of the Child, Growing by Design 1900-2000
When: July 29 thru November 5
Where: MoMA

Many of the concepts and display pieces in MoMA’s ambitious exhibit of 20th century design for children are everyday, like breathing we don’t typically give them a second thought.

But at some point, designers did—hence the first large-scale overview of progressive design thinking on children and their development.

From children’s nurseries, furniture, and clothing to school architecture, playgrounds, amusement rides, toys, games and books—all of these and more have affected how children live, learn and play over the past century and will be featured within seven in-depth sections.

eugène atget exhibit: new york

What: Eugène Atget: Documents pour artistes
When: February 6 thru April 9, 2012
Where: MOMA

What’s not to love about black and white photography, Paris in the early 1900s, its architecture and breathtaking gardens—and supporting its multitudes of artists?

Eugène Atget admired all of the above, so he photographed whatever he saw as interesting and beautiful—empty outdoor cafés, expansive gardens, cobblestone streets and the shops that lined them. Then he became the first to produce and sell what today we refer to as ‘stock photography’ selling these ‘documents’ to artists in need of source material.

Focused in Paris’ fifth arrondissement, the Luxemborg gardens, and the parks at Sceaux, he captured the essence of his subjects—images that spark a thousand words each and which will surely stand the test of time.

While Atget did photograph people early in his career—and perhaps inspired by the Surrealists in later years—he seemed much more interested in modern store window mannequins and the marble sculpted goddesses found throughout the city.

the carsten höller experience: new york

photo by: Mesaj What: Carsten Höller: Experience
When: now thru January 22, 2012
Where: New Museum

Experiencing art is an individual, emotional experience—different for every one and perhaps never quite the same for a revisiting viewer.

The Carsten Höller: Experience exhibit at the New Museum brings new meaning to this idea as it toys with and challenges engrained perceptions of the outside world.

Drawing on inspiration from scientific experiments—and through amusement parks or playgrounds—he attempts to manipulate viewer’s physical and psychological sensations creating uncertainty and doubt.
