our beyoncÉ diaries
What is there to say about last night’s halftime star that you haven’t read already? Well, here’s an opportunity to get pseudo-academic about the issue, here’s a chance to just sit back and marvel at the complexity of it all, here’s where to go to feel like you really know her, and here’s a chance to relive last night’s glory. Oh, and below: some things about us.
+ Getting giddy whenever Miss Moss does one of her food-plus-fashion roundups. Street style and recipes, whaaaa?!
+ Really appreciating the gift of cacti/succulent greenness this time of year—I scored a flat of teeny, tiny guys (growing up!) from San Pedro Cactus on Etsy.
+ Catching up on the books I missed in 2012 with the help of the Slaughterhouse 90210 reading list. Currently devouring: the really wonderful Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
+ Stocking up on cozy-making Voluspa candles—they come in fancy little tins and are half as expensive as these things typically are.
+ Wanting to know a whole lot more than I do about Hugh Hefner’s 2,500-volume, Guinness-record-holding scrapbook collection, as spotted on The Coveteur. Come on, internet, what are you good for, if not this?
+ Feeling really grateful for my fleece-lined running pants on my sub-freezing morning runs.
+ Obsessing over (Of a Kind alum!) Brook&Lyn’s latest creations: insanely gorgeous wall hangings.
+ Taking my avocado toast to new heights with the addition of boquerones, a.k.a. fancy anchovies.
+ Spending too much time playing with the New York Times’ awesome Red Carpet Project—and remembering a time when Nicole Kidman’s Dior dress was one of the bigger controversies in Tom Cruise’s life.
+ Staring mesmerized at this time-lapse video showing the behind-the-scenes action at an Ann Street Studio shoot that went down in our office a few weeks ago. (I have a 2-second cameo. Hair flip.)
