I bought this super rad old wooden barn ladder to mount on my wall and hang my scarves off of....except I don't know how to mount it without a) getting a zillion splinters and b) putting ginormous holes in my wall :-/ But it's still super rad and I love it and am excited to eventually figure out how the heck to hang it! (help?)
My hair rocked yesterday. Even the sales lady at William Sonoma (jeez louise that store smells AMAZING during the holidays) said "I LOVE your hair!". It took me only about 5 minutes to whip up this quirky bun/twist/updo, to which the pics do not do justice. I promise, it rocked :)
It even looked cool after a bunch came loose! (photo credit--bothering Adam at his desk. Please also note the Nerf gun laying on the table across from me...which they have officially figured out how to use to bounce shots off the wall to make it around the barrier between us, thus hitting me in the head while I type. Oh boys.)
I love my sweet old friend, Ben. I woke up this morning to the new Florence and the Machine album sitting in my inbox. I love all of my friends, of course, but I tend to reserve a little extra lovin for the kittens who share music with me :) Thank you, Ben!! Flo is one of my absolute favorites!
I realized on my walk to work that I was HAULING ass to this song down the Chinatown hills. Like, practically running. One misstep and I probably would have taken out several dozen tiny Asian women. I couldn't help myself! Her energy when she sings just instantly lifts my spirits and I'm so grateful for the heart pounding love of brisk walking, fresh air, my city and life she evokes from me.
My darling cousin Courtney introduced me to these toogle brushes (sidenote: "toogles" is the term for "teeth" that my first college boyfriend used and it still makes me giggle to say it) a few months ago and I've been obsessed ever since. They're made of recycled yogurt cups and come in a prepaid return envelope that you can mail back for them to recycle!! Whaaaat?! Amazing. I usually buy mine at Trader Joe's but you can also snag them online :)
