since enough of you opened the last one..
our back-to-work diaries
My GOODNESS it is challenging to go back to work after the holiday break—even when you’re your own boss. Erica and I figured out last year that the best way to kick off the re-entry process is to buy ourselves a nice meal somewhere warm and cozy (this year it was Al Mar) and make a list of all of the big things we plan to accomplish in the year ahead. “Be really cool” and “make a lot of money” may or may not have been included on this year’s list, but then, they should probably be on everybody’s list, right? Below, some of our other methods of coping. —claire

+ Ogling my new pillows. Alyson Fox (who has two Of a Kind editions under her belt!) did a majorly rad collab with West Elm, the two fluffiest creations are making my couch look all homey.
+ Falling down the rabbit hole that is The Cut’s Look Book series. The premise: a gazillion photos of a celeb through the years. Start with Brooke Shields and Katie Holmes.
+ Eating way too many Chinese five spice candied pecans—the biggest hit of my NYE meal (c/o Food52) is a total snackin’ staple right now.
+ Loving the crap out of my Hanukkah present from Claire: an “E” earring by Lena Wald!
+ Getting really into Well + Good. Reading that site feels almost as nice as making a New Year’s resolution you know will only last ‘til Feb.
+ Feeling inspired by the Art21 episode on protest—3 of 4 artists featured are women who can really only be described as badasses.
+ Poking around Medium, the latest project from Ev and Biz (Twitter masterminds) and getting really into it—reminds me of the early days of Tumblr in a handful of ways.
+ And, via Medium, reading a great piece on a 10th grader’s insights into the latest social media platforms. Makes an excellent case for interviewing 10th graders about most anything.
+ Getting psyched to see our former intern and occasional model, Sarah Ryder, getting some street style love from Teen Vogue.
+ Researching local cross-country skiing trails. I’m raring to get back into it after making my debut (okay, this is what it really looked like) over the holiday break.
