Great new use for an old ugly bangle. Via the style files.
We’ve been bunkering in the apartment all weekend – hiding away from Hurricane Irene. But then we woke up Sunday morning wondering if it had even hit us, as our street was almost completely clean of debris (not that I’m complaining!) Anyway during our lock-in we baked choco chip cookies, made a big warm veggie soup and watched Office Space (one of our faves) for like the 100th time. Have you seen it?
I also had plenty of time to mosey around other blogs, so here you go…
5 fun things from around the web:
1. Some couch pillow inspiration.
2. Instant smile when listening to this Summer morning mix via Elizabeth Antonia.
3. Black summer
4. Get lost inside these vintage summer snapshots.
I’m attending (and performing a song in) an upcoming wedding for a friend and have been snooping around online for a cute dress that won’t clash with their amusement park red/white/blueish theme. It’s been hard. But then I saw this girl wearing an awesome paint dress on closet visit and thought ‘That’s it! That’s the dress I need!’ YES! Click on the pic and see how pretty it is.
I decided to believe that it would fit me as well as it does on the girl in the top photo, and so I took the plunge and clicked BUY. Obviously I’ll need to find a red belt & a cute clutch.
Have you ever had this problem of seeing a dress one place and it looks fabulous – then seeing it online and second guessing it? Fingers crossed that it fits my small physique!
What a cozy little bed nook! Found this as an ‘after’ by my new favorite Design Star, Emily Henderson, while nerding around the HGTV website. I love the color choices, the pattern mixing, the small cluster of framed butterflies and the super cute wallpaper. I’d love to dive in and hide behind that little wall. By the way, lately I’ve been thinking about painting our bedroom a light grey color. There must be 1000’s of greys out there – can anyone recommend the perfect grey paint?
Summer has at least another month or two to rear it’s blazing heat, but doesn’t it feel that pressure from its seasonal peers to finish its song and dance? It has to at least hear my whining and sweaty suffering.
Er anyway, here’s to a graceful transition… Swiss braids, lightweight fabrics and serious black & whites.
A weekend for me is Friday & Saturday because I work for an Israeli company. At first I thought it might be difficult to have a different weekend from everyone else but actually it has turned out to be quite the opposite. Friday, as it turns out, is the perfect day to frolic around the city without having to worry about dodging lots of crampy foot traffic. Moseyman and I decided to spend today in Central Park – I think we haven’t been since we left NYC 4 years ago so it was a real treat.
Now Moseyman is passed out on the couch (I’ll spare him that photo) and I’m about to scrub 5 layers of sunblock off.
We had a lovely day… hope you had one too!
It’s still the week’s beginning but I’m already looking forward to this weekend. (I need more sleep.) But tonight I’m attending a company dinner (I work for this company), and I’m kind of excited to go and eat amazing food. Because we always get treated to amazing food.
More things I’m looking forward to:
