Now & Later

Slowest. Week. Ever.


I'm rejoicing that it's actually Friday considering I spent the better part of yesterday thinking today would be Saturday. Don't you hate when that happens?

Also - I'm admiring all the white, light, and architectural details in this apartment:

I'm also digging the retro pieces throughout...


It is my dear friend Erin's birthday! (Happy Birthday Err!) So, we'll be meandering around the city tonight and then meeting up for brunch tomorrow for all sorts of celebrating :)

I also have high hopes for more cooking, possibly baking (!?), and cozying up for an afternoon in Prospect Park.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!


A Man and His House

I found these photographs over on Behance, accompanied by the following: "This house belongs to an old man who has only ever left the island once - to go to war. And each time I pass his house on my way home to Edinburgh I think about how much I want to stay. And how one day I just might."

There's just something about this old man, and his house, and this group of photos that I really love :)

Not Tuesday

Cute jewelry by Not Tuesday. Shop here.


Shaved Asparagus Pizza

So this weekend I did something I haven't done in awhile... cook! I found this awesome recipe over on Smitten Kitchen (which I'm completely obsessed with) and I couldn't wait to try it out! Mike and I recently invested in a pizza stone and some other pizza-related accessories so it worked out perfectly! It was crispy and delicious and I highly recommend you try it!

Each "remnant" in Greg Sand's series was created by weaving together 3 found photographs - each from a different point in the person's life - to form a portrait of someone who's passed away. The series is all about recollection and remembrance and each creation depicts a likeness of the individual rather than a literal image of the person at one time. That's deep.




Now & Later

I thought the weekend would never come! Whew!


I really like the Tree Series by South Korean photographer Myoung Ho Lee:

He separates the trees from their natural surrounding by placing a blank canvas behind them. The effect is so visually interesting it got me right away! What do you think? Interesting - yay or nay?

See and read more about Myoung's work here.


I am beyond happy to announce that our apartment is all done! Mike put the finishing touches on the living room last night - solidifying the end of our labor. Now we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the place!

And enjoy we will :) We're having some friends drop by throughout the day tomorrow to check it out and maybe have a drink. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone!

Hope you all have a lovely and relaxing weekend!



Mass Games

Photographer Sam Gellman traveled to North Korea in hopes of getting some interesting images. One of the more amazing things he was able to capture was the Mass Games - staged mass performances that reinforce North Korea's emphasis on the group rather than the individual. Around 100,000 people are chosen to participate and then go through rigorous training leading up to it. In the end it's completely synchronized and really impressive.

See more North Korea photos here.


Thursday Music Mix

Lately I've been slightly obsessed with the following songs, and bands, so figured I should share! Enjoy!

What have you been listening to lately? Would LOVE to hear!


Party On!

Love these sweet birthday cards by Dear Hancock. Buy them here and here.


Stripes and Sketches

I'm totally digging these drawings by Daphne van den Heuvel. I love to draw and it's dawned on me that I haven't in quite some time. I'm actually in the process of getting a side project off the ground that will require me to draw once a month, in the company of other awesome people that like to do the same - but, more to come on that. So in the meantime I'll enjoy other people's lovely work :)



Icy Getaway

I've always been a beach vacation type of girl but, there's just something about Finland's Igloo Village ice hotel that's really got me second-guessing myself.

Guests can cozy up in their warm igloo and watch the northern lights through thermal glass (which stays clear no matter how low the temperature drops). In addition to the igloos, there's a snow restaurant, ice sculpture gallery, snow chapel (for the winter wedding inclined), hot sauna, and refreshing ice holes to keep you occupied. It certainly seems like it'd be well worth leaving my comfort zone...

What do you think? Would you stay here!?


Candy Bag

How fun is this candy dish that looks like an open ziplock bag!? Cute! Get it here.


Fall Favorites: J.Crew

J.Crew has some really great looks for Fall! And with the shopping mood I've been in lately it would probably be best for me to steer clear of their site (and all NYC locations). But, if it just so happens that I can't, I think I'll get some of the pieces shown above. Especially the first one - LOVE the rusty colored pants!

More fall favorites to come over the next couple weeks :)

Art Cap

Artist Mary Ellen Croteau created this awesome self portrait using lots and lots of bottle caps. Read more about it here and see more picture of the process here.
