weekend inspiration

I love unexpected days off. What shall I do today?


Busiest day ever

The only way I can describe today.

run down:

8:30-wake up, do yoga to get my brain activated
9:15-breakfast consisting of an apple and some granola
9:30-quick shower


11:00-6:00 pm- Hold down Two Elle, last minute preparations
6:15-7:30- Icon Party ( more work)


9:00 pm-slang merch for Kindercastle @ 12th & Porter
12:00 am- group dinner/drinks
2:00 am- Struggle to keep my eyes open ,drive home and fall in bed.



It's never enough.
I guess I can't expect people to care or put in half as much effort to anything unrelated to themselves as I do.
My greatest flaw I suppose.

Mary Poppins

I am now a weekend Nanny. My job description just basically entails me hanging out with three precious little kids all weekend, doing various arts & crafts and playing pretty,pretty princess. I'm excited about bestowing all of my child-like tendencies on someone who can appreciate it (unicorns, make believe etc...) Plus the extra income doesn't hurt =)

I had a pleasant surprise when my lunch was delivered today! I love the new packaging that Heinz is doing, and each of five ketchup packets that were thrown in with my order were a different design. Here are my two faves:

Also, buy me these plz:

whitefox tank top

french bulldog


Google search: giant cat


Gloomy sunday

Armed with Dragons of Eden and a double-shot soy latte, I began as what I knew was going to be a very long, boring day at the store. The sun has been playing peek-a-boo all afternoon and even though it's warmer today than usual, the foot-traffic through the 12Th South district is pretty much non-existent. Thankfully Ellie came by to keep me company and to wrap with me about the usual suspects (money, boys, spicy food...)

I feel as though I should make a comment about one or the other here, but I'll spare you the details.

Instead, let's talk about craigslist.
This website runs my world. I wake up in the morning and before I even think about checking any of my three social networks I immediately run my mouse to the top left of my browser and get my daily dose of madness. Starting with the M4W missed connections (vanity) and then to the M4M (humor) and finally ending with the W4W (curiosity). From there I cruise the job postings, the misc. free items section, and sometimes when I need a good laugh, I check the "best of" for any updates. I can spend hours on craigslist. It's such a grab-bag of people who post that the result is simply...intoxicating. I love reading the tech-savvy nerds battle it out with hillbillies on the forums. Its fun to imagine what some of these people look like, what they do in their day to day. In writing this I think I just realized how creepy I am.

Today's gloomy weather playlist includes:

Stevie Wonder- Natural Wonder
Talking Heads-Remain in Light
Uncle Skeleton -Uncle Skeleton Presents: Pancho Chumley
NAS (until an older couple came in)
Various YouTube vids
(Currently) Leonard Cohen-Death of A Ladies' Man

I heard Leonard Cohen has been touring. Apparently his manager took him for all he was worth. What a shame. Mr. Cohen has and always will be one of my favorite artists. It's not even about his voice. The vivid pictures and scenarios he weaves in his songs haunt you. Leonard doesn't try to sway you with beautifully disguised lyrics or melodies. He's raw. His voice is shaky, whether he is singing out of his range or even just speaking. He makes you feel like you are sitting next to him in some shady, dimly-lit hole in the wall and he is pouring out his heart to you over a bottle of gin. Tales of Love lost and found. Of pain and happiness (mostly pain). He's been there. and now he's making you glad that you aren't him. Even though he wreaks of Stale Doral cigarettes and liquor, there is something strangely worldly and welcoming about him.

Leonard Cohen is the weathered traveller that you have read about in stories from your childhood, only in current times and much, much more real. No dragons, No damsels in distress. Just haggard from women and life. And now I guess his manager, too.

and that's why I love him so. If you ever find yourself stuck in a scenario that relates to matters of the heart (which they mostly always are) Go out and get this cd and play "Iodine." Then just sit back and let father Cohen shed some light on the situation for you.

I'm having boyfriend withdrawals. Damn you minimoog and your voodoo magic spells you put on Ross.


So good it should be regifted

Mr. Eades posted this on Yewknee and I dedicated the rest of my evening to rewinding and playing this over and over.
It's so good I had to dump it on here so you all can (maybe) enjoy it as much as I have.
Maybe it hits close to home.

Love you.

Go ask Alice


The latest Hana Hattori pics are up and they are beautiful!
You can view them Here!



So I started off the new year with a conversation about when/how we are going to die. Will it be in 2012 like the mayan calendar/conspiracy theorists predict? Will it be nuclear war? The major breach in the earth's magnetic field? The economy? The rise of A.I like in the animatrix? Spencer's creepy flesh-colored beard? =D

Not a good start to say the least....

BUT! in the meantime....

Here is a list of things I hope to achieve by the end of the year (a resolution list of sorts)

1. go back to school
2. go visit jay in Cali
3. learn french with Ross (or start to)
4. get my website up and running
5. tell people how I really feel about them
6. blog more

the list goes on...

Missing from my list is the obligitory "quit smoking." I could put this as I will probably attempt it at some point but I just don't like the pressure.

The pics from the Hana Hattori shoot are heading my direction from Brooklyn and should arrive in a couple of days! I got to preview a few of the favorites and I must say they are rather tasty! Can't wait to view them in all of their fairy tale glory and pick out a few with Cheyenne for our portfolios.

It's 10:20pm and I'm desperately trying not to fall asleep. I am becoming such an old maid.
Back to compiling the boys new years mix tape. <3
