Thinking About Food

Posted on | May 20, 2014 | 4 Comments

I think a lot about the kind of food I eat, being thoughtful about the things I put into my body is important to me. I’m reading Wheat Belly right now and because I’m curious about the paleo diet, It All Starts With Food is up next. And the new movie Fed Up looks like it will provide lots to think about. The trailer makes it look amazing and upsetting. But then again all the best documentaries usually are, right?

Has read these and/or seen this yet? Come on and let’s geek out about food.

Treasure Hunt: A Floral One Piece

Posted on | May 19, 2014 | 5 Comments

It’s that time, my friends. Bathing suit season LOOMS in the not so distant future. It’s a double edged sword, of course. As a person who loves to swim and who should have probably been born a fish, I’m ecstatic. But as a not so wee lady with some hefty thighs (and butt and belly), I dislike the idea of prancing about almost naked. But at my old age, you start to forgive those imperfections (no matter how large and in charge) and just own that shit. So why not own it in a festive floral pattern?!

So, to review: this treasure hunt is for yours truly, I’m looking for a fun, colorful floral one piece. And nothing too crazy ‘spensie either. It’s a bathing suit people. It should stay right around $100 (or less!) because much more than that is verging into coo coo territory if you ask me.

And by the way, Happy Monday. Did you have marvelous weekends?

A Leathery Update

Posted on | May 12, 2014 | 1 Comment

It’s of the utmost importance that I keep you updated on any and all significant purchases made in my life. And I just made two. I have been looking for a good everyday brown bag big enough to hold my laptop for awhile now. And I was eyeing the madewell one that everyone loves but I just wasn’t 100% sold on it so I could never pull the trigger. But then I found this fossil number and all is right in the world. It has a zipper and interior pockets which the madewell one doesn’t. I also prefer the lighter brown. In other leather news, I bought some new sandals. After all it was 80 degrees yesterday. Now I love the Frye beauties but what sane person would pay $148 for sandals? Not this lady. No sir.

Any leather news in your lives?

Where am I?

Posted on | May 8, 2014 | No Comments

Here I am, writing this from an airplane because THE FUTURE (and also this). I’ve been busy with work and I’ve been a crazy travel lady over the last week. (NYC -> Chicago -> Atlanta -> NYC -> San Francisco -> NYC). I am tired. And I need to do laundry (any volunteers?) But it’s been fun and a nice change of pace. Spring has pretty much sprung in NYC and I couldn’t be happier. I’m ready for bikes and outdoor concerts and flip flops and endless cocktails on patios and in backyards. What’s new with y’all?

I call this: The Portrait Of The Traveler At 6:45am In Preparation For A Cross Country Flight And Too Tired To Be Bothered With Makeup or A Hair Dryer. Email me for pricing.

A Wallflower

I was so excited when I first heard the rumors that we were getting a Makeshift Society in Brooklyn. I was a little less excited when I heard it was in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint part of Brooklyn instead of my part of Brooklyn BUT that’s okay, you can’t win ‘em all. I was still excited! So excited in fact I backed the kickstarter campaign and received this portrait drawn by the immensely talented, Julia Rothman, an illustrator I’ve always liked. And that’s not all, my lil’ face is going to be part of a custom wallpaper pattern in one of the conference rooms at the new Makeshift space. Probably the only time in my life I’ll be described as a wallflower.
