Our Dead (Tired) of Winter Diaries
Last week was a weird one. A meteor hit the earth, Beyoncé’s documentary raised more questions than answers, and a fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise not only got made but also made a lot of money. Here’s hoping this week is full of the kind of surprises that make us smile.
+ Finally buying myself a return-address stamp from Paperwink—feels like a grown-up move, right?
+ Cracking up over my pal Kayleen Schaefer’s account of Lulu Lemon’s sample sale—a.k.a., YogaBowl—for The New Yorker.
+ Discovering this really amaze, Michigan-based coffee delivery service, Regular Coffee: a month’s supply for $20 (shipping included!). Click through for the packaging alone.
+ Falling even harder for celeb crushes Connie Britton and Aziz Ansari (IF THAT’S EVEN POSSIBLE), thanks to The New York Times Magazine and Into the Gloss respectively.
+ Wishing that Bernadette Pascua’s happy-making flamingo drawings were hanging somewhere I could see them every day. (Sidenote: The illustrator is doing a clutch collab with our girl Lizzie Fortunato for spring!)
+ Tipping my hat to Karen Walker for always having the cleverest damn lookbook concepts. This time she recruited the ladies of Advanced Style to model her eyewear and naturally they murdered it.
+ Keeping my sanity with the help of Boomerang for Gmail—among other things, it lets you schedule emails to be sent at a later date so you don’t annoy the crap out of everyone with your Saturday night email habit.
+ Celebrating a lovely Valentine’s Day at one of my favorite NY restaurants, Blondie’s Sports Bar, where the excellent buffalo wings have been described as “canonical.”
+ Planning my next vacation with the help of travel site Fathom. I mean: Tulum tips straight from the mouth of Creatures of Comfort designer (slash Of a Kind alum!) Jade Lai? I’ll take it.
+ Swearing by the efficacy of Eatwhatever mints. They used to only be available at fancy-shmance drugstore Zitomer, but Erica found them sitting pretty at the checkout at Duane Reade last week. Hooray for good ideas going mass.
