this was an insane work week, hence the few posts. but i'm about to be on a more normal rehearsal/life/eating/workout schedule in the upcoming week so hopefully posts shall return to normal. i hope everyone has lovely and relaxing things planned this weekend. i'll be teaching kids about 1891 germany, so somebody ht the beach and have a margarita for me, ok? anyway, lots of goodies around the blogosphere this week!

1) lana del ray is slowly creeping to the top of my favorites female vocalists these days.
2) these one-of-a-kind terrariums from terrain are at the top of my wishlist!
3) how cool is this illustration by finnish company agent pekka?
4) riesling strawberry slushies = divinity. 


happy happy weekend, friends!

SAY YES TO FLOWERS!

i am on a ridiculously strict budget right now which as many of you know, ain't no walk in the park. there is a lot of stress that comes along with perusing ones dreams; the giving up of a steady paycheck, the shutting off of one's precious cable (i'll miss you, californication!) and the sacraficial choice to never go out to dinner. ever. the one thing i refuse to give up on are fresh cut flowers. the joy of walking into a room and smelling that sweet and sultry stargazer lily or staring into the charming bud of a bright yellow ranunculus simply can't be matched. for all you los angelinos out there - there is a way to say yes to flowers on a budget! i'm a fan of my secret garden which is affordable and lovely. they wrap your buds in brown paper and tie it with a string (even if you're only buying one stem) it's simply delicious. there is also the flower mart downtown which offers a wide variety for trader joe's prices. and if you get an extra babysitting gig or a bonus - stop by gilly's in silverlake. they have the world's best collection and are known for their vintage vase collection. i swoon.

MUSIC MONDAY: L.P.

Monday, January 9, 2012



full disclosure: i discovered this song while watching a citi bank commercial. and then i spent 30 minutes googling trying to find it. but i did! this song is called into the wild by pop rock artist laura pergolizzi (who goes by L.P. professionally and with a name like that, i don't blame her!) she's like neko case mixed with foster the people with a twist of patti smith . enjoy it folks. and happiest monday!

THE BUSINESS OF CARDS

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

one / two / unknown / four / five


i must truly be an adult now because i'm in the market for my first set of business cards! i feel like their are so many options out there - i'm having a hard time committing to just one! and there are so many questions that go with this process; how many do i order the first time? do i go for a simple design or something catchy? will i even use them? is there a company that you guys have used that you like? how many cards did you order? i'd love to know!

HOT COCOA LOVIN'

Monday, January 2, 2012




how adorable is this? it makes me want to still be in boston sipping hot cocoa with the snow falling outside my window. also, wanna know how they made those heart marshmallows? so simple: take whip creme and spread on a tray and let sit in freezer for 30 minutes. then use cookie cutters and place in hot chocolate! instant love in your hot cocoa!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

photo hereholy smokes! where did the time go? i feel like i blinked and 2011 blew by. this past year was intense and a big rebuilding year for myself and a lot of people i know. i feel like i took a leap of faith; quit my desk job, decided to pursue theater full time and recently have began freelancing on the side. and hopefully by the time 2013 rolls around, i will have made the big cross country move and will be settled in my cozy brooklyn apartment. here's to hoping! i feel lucky to be in a creative place. i feel lucky to have wonderful friends and a supportive family. and i'm so thankful for all of my lovely readers who keep me sane and feeling positive. i wish a magical and peaceful 2012 to you all!
