FROM THE DESK OF: I’d caught many of these “My Desk” features from Vanity Fair in print, but several were new to me. It’s so fun to sneak a peek at some very notable work spaces!
GROWN UP TREE HOUSE: Last week I mentioned the finale of another One Room Challenge series, but I neglected to mention Naomi’s INCREDIBLE space, which I wish I could have in my house, right now, no boys allowed, please and thank you. Homegirl is so talented!
TOTAL HIPPIE WINO: I thought this post debunking some myths and misunderstandings about organic and biodynamic wine was cool. Can you tell the difference?
BLOGGER BLOOPERS: Hallie’s series of outfit photo “outtakes” always cracks me up. I do love a girl with a sense of humor (and perspective)!
BARBECUE TIME: I can’t believe that Memorial Day weekend is NEXT weekend. Here’s a delish recipe for smoked chicken wings...
I WANT THIS: …and the most gorgeous Boozy Fruit Punch (with fruit striped ice cubes!) if you need a few entertaining ideas.
NINETIES, NO THANKS: Okay, when it comes to music, you’re welcome any time. But fashion? Hm. Those Birkenstocks I mentioned last week were delivered, and after a try-on, they immediately went back in the box. They looked horrible on me, you guys. So, the search continues for supremely comfortable walking sandals for travels abroad (and at-home errand running) this summer. Suggestions? I’m eyeing these and these, but you can never tell if these shoes are things you’ll be able to walk for literally miles in.
BUY SOME DAMN ART: I enjoyed discovering this little online gallery via this post on Miss Moss. Some really incredible pieces for not a lot of dough, considering they’re original works!
C’EST TRÃS BIZARRE, NON?: The Cut’s Paris in 30 Days series continues, and I loved reading this post on “Things Parisians Do That Stun New Yorkers. And Vice Versa.”
AM I ADDICTED?: In case you couldn’t tell, I spend a lot of time on NY Mag and all its sister sites. This week, they launched a new one that is SO up my alley: it’s called Science of Us, and it’s all about well, the science of us.
Apologies for the lack of post yesterday — things have been extra zany around here with projects finishing, beginning, and deep in development. I have a feeling random days off might happen more here and there, but I promise to try and let you know when they will! This week flew by: between gym, book club, meetings, and work, it’s hard to believe it’s Friday again…let alone that next weekend is MEMORIAL DAY. Y’all, before we know it, Labor Day will be here! This weekend will be a slow one before the holiday next week (and friends coming into town for an extended stay!). Gym tomorrow, a few errands, and I think I’m going to take Joe over to the west side to show him Gotham West Market (Hitha introduced me…this food and restaurant market is the coolest!). What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun?
Images: All snapshots from my week! Peonies are in season; the cherry and magnolia trees in Central Park are making the most incredible confetti; and last weekend at the Bronx Zoo, I spotted a peacock in full plumery. Be sure to follow along on Instagram!
