Whoops, things have been a bit wonky over here. Stuff broke, and is still sort of broke. I might change some things up around here, site-look-wise, but don’t hold your breath. I’ve been BUSY AND IMPORTANT and ignoring my site of late (anyone else read this article? I’ve been thinking about this stuff a lot recently).
So what have I been up to, and what are some super-random things I want to say and show you?
ONE. Marilyn Monroe played a blonde doll for much of her career, but she was quite the reader in her off-duty hours (while wearing hi-waisted shorts, NATCH). Here’s a list of what was in her library. I just bought The Dud Avocado to read at the beach which didn’t happen, see item TWO, but I WILL read it….what are your must-reads?
TWO. Work’s been demanding a lot of attention recently, but who can complain when you get to spend intimate time with some of the most beautiful paintings ever made? We just opened Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series, and it’s safe to say that you can truly get lost in these meditative paintings. Go forth, enjoy the AC, and do yoga at the Corcoran (yes). OK. Work plug over.
THREE. I’ve been helping an entrepreneur friend with a summer picnic series featuring cool writers, thinkers, art people, education people, food people. Cool, unexpected locations around town and more importantly, great unexpected friendships and conversations. Invitations to the Series are issued based on an application, with SUPER HARD-HITTING questions like how one’s life might taste as a pie.
FOUR. I’ve got a lot of things on my shopping list of late (more on that, for sure), and one thing I wanted this spring but didn’t get was this burnout baseball tee. I love the idea of taking something basic and tomboyish and adding a soft, feminine skirt or a bunch of necklaces. It landed on my Spring Clothing List (on my phone…yes, I do this) because of I Want to Be Her, a personal-style blog from Andrea Linett, the co-founder of Lucky magazine. I really like the simple format and the way she profiles her subjects. Good tips, links, and aspirational style that’s actually achievable.
FIVE. Marvin Gaye singing the National Anthem. You’re welcome.
I’ll be back. I promise. Otherwise I’ll just be around, talking on Twitter, and also probably throwing up random posts like this or because I just made this gorgeous cake! and want you to PAY ATTENTION TO ME AND MY BURSTS OF MARTHA STEWARTNESS! Are you having fun yet??
