OUR LEANING IN...
TO OUR PILLOWS DIARIES
Every New Year’s resolution-related article I read last week seemed to be about not working so damn much. This one, about leaving the office, was my my favorite. Of a Kind’s big (-ish) nod towards work-life balance is our start time of 10:30am. We take advantage of it by doing things normal people should do, like sleeping (we love this one), exercising (I run every morning), eating breakfast with our significant others (Erica never misses a Wednesday morning date with Thomas), and dropping off our dry cleaning (well, we try). Every time I see another article about how successful CEOs all wake up at 5am I think to myself “That must suck.” So here’s to a more sane and sleep-filled 2014—in which we might even start leaving the office at a reasonable hour, too. —claire
- Determining that Mindy Kaling is my new health and wellness guru.
- Online-browsing Scandinavian Grace, a rad Catskills design store that was closed when I tried to visit IRL! Top of the wish list: Same Same But Different glasses.
- Counting down the days ‘til the Veronica Mars movie comes out. THERE IS A TRAILER.
- Falling for Miyozakura Junmai Cup sake, which comes in an unreasonably cute panda cup that you can (and should) keep.
- Finding it nearly impossible to believe that Nancy Kerrigan took a
crowbar to the kneepolice baton to the thigh 20 years ago today—this article in The Believer does a pretty awesome job of breaking it all down.
- Driving two-hours from L.A. just to stand in line for tacos at La Super Rica in Santa Barbara. Totally worth it.
- Wondering how it took me this long to discover Camelbak Eddy bottles—a product built for bendy-straw enthusiasts like myself. My daily water intake has doubled.
- Getting lost in the stellar LIFE archive website—total treasure trove of inspiration and education.
- Spending forever touching all the things at the fantastic Hurra! pop-up in Venice, CA—extended through the end of the month, so get over there!
- Wondering if I can legitimately call kabocha squash my new hobby—and dying to try this amazing-looking Suzanne Goin recipe for it.
