Don’t worry, I’m alive.

And ready to get back into my curative blog mood. To kick it off again, some things I’m loving lately…


Minorly obsessed with this Magistral Chest

Loving the these walls from AD

The colors, shapes, and materials in this moody room


Yes please to this jacket


Enough said.


Does this chair make anyone else freak out in a good way?

coffee break | happy valentine’s day!

Happy hearts!

Will you brie mine? (…Sorry, I love cheese, and I love cheesy puns. (*waits silently*…get it?) Sorry twice.) Yes, I know that was a parenthesis inside a parenthesis. This post is starting off great!

New Yorkers, need an activity this weekend? Go celebrate The Beatles and all their awesome love songs. Or just listen to one of my favorites right now.

Everyone else, go make this cake.

I miss these! And the Berenstain Bears, for that matter.

Marking the Distance (a quick, must-watch):

Check out Google’s homepage for more cute love stories (in case you missed it, click on the hearts!).

I wish you love today, and even more importantly, I wish for others to receive love from you!

Happy hump day!

Life gets chaotic, and sometimes it’s hard to find time to take a deep breath and refresh your mind. Instead of telling yourself the typical Wednesday consolation “I’m halfway there” and focusing your joy on the weekend in sight, try enjoying today!

Here’s some inspiration for the rest of your work week, and after that, too:

fashion friday | out the door

Happy Friday!

Life has blessed me with a lot of activities and fun work recently, but that means I’m a little frazzled. Who has time to leisurely pick out the day’s ensemble anyway? What do you throw on before you run out the door?

I’m ready to leisurely enjoy the city after this busy week, despite the inevitable Super Bowl chaos…

…so I have some adventures planned for S and I. Get out there and have a good one yourself!
