holiday time

so from most of the blogs i love and read, i find writers and bloggers are very kind and in the holiday spirit create gift guides with others in mind. i would like to compile things for me. primarily, i would like a calendar. these are my favorites. 1 2 3 4

oh hi

since winter can be my favorite season, since i've gotten so many please blog again responses, since i'm unable to organize my wish list otherwise AND since my work computer seems to permit me to blog again, i'm back. hey.

couple crush

if i could tell you the amount of times i wished i was a married redheaded model living in TN with my rockstar husband, well, it would be at least 2o or so times. after reading about her music in vogue last month its about all i've been listening to lately at work. the below is one of my favorites.

i relate to karen in trying to prove myself as a model and a musician. its been an uphill battle for me..too..

adventures in wallpaper removal

i dont know if you can make out the frantic scratches that i circled. but as i said behold this is when i gave up. post crying, post bleeding, pre ennui.

oh man

i overslept for like...2 months again. well thank you for your nice notes about my absence. i am alive and well. in fact very well, as part of the reason for my blogvacay was because i moved to a perfectly perfect street in the village. (i'm not being a brat here, but
its really cute).

in the past few months i've done 3 tasting menus in the village and i thought i'd catalogue my findings in case anyone needs a recommendation for a special or just because occasion.
1. blue hill: 75 washington pl, near. 6th
-5 holy crow courses @ 68
- omg my favorite meal ever, so fresh and creative
- i dont know what to say just go, great vibe
2. camaje: 85 macdougal st., near bleeker
-sun-thu, any three courses @ $35
-local food
-very cozy/neighborhood gem feeling
3. mas farmhouse: 39 downing
-great service
-delicious farmfresh food, not that inventive but solid
-great drink menu, bit of an 30s+ crowd but good for spesh occasions

table of my dreams

behold, this is the dining room table of my dreams.

it really is. its exactly what i want in a table in that it is: perfect, natural, modern, and is the manifestation of my new home's theme, "urban bohemian." why WHY is it $7,250. i found other live edge options in case this table also is your dream table.
anthro @ $3,498
trailer park slope @ 2,500

a bathroom rabbit

in my new place i have a very plain bathroom, the only accent in it randomly is hunter green. i'm not sure how to make it less...grandma-y. maybe a giant version of this print would help. i liked it because he is modestly looking away, appropriate. happy weekend!

tied up

i've been pretty..tied up this week. i'm going to buenes aires as i mentioned before, next friday! i'm also tying up loose ends in respect to my upcoming move to the village. its exciting but all of this change has got me in..knots! get it? the necklaces? knots! alright that's enough. here, here and here.
