I’ve had some postcard ideas swirling around in my head for months now, and I’m excited to say that I’ve finally gotten a couple of them into production! I think of these as snail mail to send to your bff who lives in another state, or even just 20 minutes down the road. An old school reminder that you are overdue for a hangout. Available as singles or a set!
Mark your calendars! I’m sooooo excited to be bringing my new ceramic jewelry, little dishes, and ring cones to Madewell at Lenox Mall for a Pop-Up Sale! Madwell is one of my favorite shops so this is a dream come true! The event is Sunday, November 8th from 12-3pm, and the perfect opportunity to knock out some of your christmas shopping early! There will be Sips and Snacks and you might as well go ahead and pick out a little something to wear to the next holiday party too
Whoops! I’ve been a slacker on the trip recaps. We mostly worked and ate tasty dinners at night. Friday was a half day at work so I did manage to run around SoHo for a bit. We grabbed coffee at Maman… which was very photogenic, and therefore the majority of my photos took place here.
It was also right next door to APiece Apart who was having a Sample Sale that day. We hit a handful of stores, and I was having some unusual shopping luck.
I ate at Eataly 3 times because t’s right by our hotel and perfect for nights when you’re just too tired, or dining alone. Sometimes I’ll grab food to-go and eat in my hotel room… ahem…bed.

A perfect comfy dress for fall and winter.
I picked up this dress at The Rising States in New York, and I love it! Of course when visiting my dad recently
he thought I was wearing my pj’s, and not actually dressed to go out. He doesn’t get it.
Love Elizabeth Suzann’s Collection, and this dress looks like something I could live in.
Bright Blue textured silk…
These looks definitely go from day to night with a quick shoe change and a few accessories. I need every single one.
Prepare yourself for some serious plant envy, and make sure to try a nitro coffee. I’m so excited to have this new spot in the neighborhood, and for what’s to come! Although I’m a bit nervous for my shopping habit. Swing in for coffee…. and leave with a new outfit and some prospector co. candles.

1. I’ve been binge watching a lot of shows while working in the studio, and started You’re the Worst on Hulu Wednesday night. It’s a dark romantic comedy, and I find it HILARIOUS. The show Centers on two toxic, self-destructive people who fall in love and attempt a relationship. The characters are a self involved, and not always great at showing their emotions. I’m also loving the supporting cast. If you like this, you’ll probably like Difficult People, and Catastrophe too. Maybe I like mean humor.
2. In a fantastic attempt at urban renewal, the government of Mexico recently collaborated with a group of local street artists called Germen Crew to paint a 20,000 square meter mural across the facades of 209 homes in a low-income district in Pachuca, Mexico. Would love to see this! – via We the Urban + patternpulp
3. Currently reading Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life . I’ve always been a big fan of Steve Martin, and so far his memoir has not disappointed.
4. 7 famous women who found success later in life. Can’t lie. It’s hard not to panic about what I’m doing with my life as I get older. Love this post from Besotted that inspires me to keep working away, and that it’s never too late!
5. Becoming Aerosolar, is an exploration into humanity’s environmental impact on the planet, and imagining more sustainable models for the future. Artist Tomas Saraceno created these ethereal, airborne “vehicles” from recycled plastic bags, which are heated by the sun, and then begin to float upwards. WHAT.
