Glass World.



Living in a world that looks like it's made of glass and diamonds.

For the man who has everything.


Echo and I had a conversation recently about how totally impossible to shop for the men in our lives are.

I give you: The Louis Vuitton fondue set.

(Also: Kind of a weirdly beautiful hybrid between Absolutely Swell and The Cheese Blog? Just sayin.)

The End.

This is how we feel. (above)  This is how we should feel. (below)





Max & I finished work. No small feat. 

Basket...ball?


Riddle me this. How does someone (me) who didn't even know how many players were on the court at one time end up being in fourth in a fantasy league? There is hope in the world.

Awesome.


Enough said.

Just In Case.



Just in case you were in the market for a new fish tank, i thought I would help you out. Mattieu Lahanneur and Anthony van den Bossche's 'Local River' might be your solution.

The Time Has Come.

In the Midst of Things


From procrastination, to real work. This is what our lives are like right now.

New Kid On the Block


While procrastinating (endlessly) instead of finishing up a paper, I came across this artist. I think it's pretty interesting. You might too. Check it out.

procrastination takes a spooky turn.

There’s an urban legend that’s gone around until no one is sure who it happened to, or if it happened at all. It was late one night, a few years ago, when a young man was walking through Union Square Park. He suddenly felt someone behind him, their hands over his eyes. When he turned in surprise, there was Bill Murray, his creased face leaning in close. Bill whispered, “No one is ever going to believe you,” and then just walked away.

thanks, tyler.

17 Hours Until Game Time


The day before Thanksgiving at my house meant baking more than i had in the past few days. Two pumpkin pies, a pumpkin pie cheesecake with gingersnap crust, an apple galette, a pear almond tart, cranberry lemon crumpets and apple cinnamon syrup later... my day is over.

More Chocolate Than A Human Needs


The first cookie baking happened today. These are ridiculously decadent chocolate cookies, adapted slightly from this recipe. Surprisingly fast to make even though there are a few steps involved. Highly recommended for those who love chocolate.

Paris & London



In a place where it is hard at times to find a modern hotel, Mama Shelter Paris comes to the rescue. Tucked away from all of the tourist traps, Phillipe Stark designed a place where modern meets fun. 

On the flip side, London's Rough Luxe strips the standard hotel down to the basics for beautiful rooms, with all of the classic amenities.

Home, Pt. 1.

Two discoveries that I've had at home. 

One: it's REALLY easy to make your own bread. Check it out. This recipe is something everyone should try.

Two: Pear cider is dangerously good.

'Tis the season.


Today's tactic in the neverending quest for procrastination techniques was to look for Christmas gifts for people (and myself, obviously). I think a few sites are worth sharing that i stumbled upon...




This jewelry maker, based in Brooklyn, makes wonderful necklaces and rings inspired by the woods, the ocean, and the skies. I own the 14 point stag ring, and while it can be somewhat dangerous because of the antlers, every time i wear it compliments are received. Fighting bear rings and telescope necklaces pretty much seal the deal for me. 


Frequently homegoods websites make me yearn to have my own apartment. This site has been the most recent. It's for the more modern me, not the frilly, girly me. 


I would buy things from this website if i was a much, much cooler person. Enough said.


Yup, you read right. Sometimes you just need a little Laura Ashley in your life. File this under the 'wishing i had an apartment' category as well. 

This could go on for days, but then i'd have nothing to post about tomorrow. Enjoy.

I bet it's really cold in Ireland.

The little things.




Sometimes the things capable of making you the most simple kind of happy come in unexpected places. For instance, when you are finished eating a late night meal at a diner perched atop a hill, and stumble upon a room full of quarter vending machines. For 75 cents i bet you could make someone's day.
