Favorites: Sun + Dotter edition

It was a treat to be featured in Jeanne Chan’s Playdate series on Shop Sweet Things. Jeanne, Eva Kolenko and I took our little ones on a picnic in Alamo Square Park. I was there, and Eva’s photos still make me want to be there. I’m amazed she got so many great shots of Viv, because I swear all Viv [...]

Every now and then, my favorites from around the web.    A while back, Stella (my dog), Viv and I were invited to a backyard party slash 15-dog photoshoot for local dog accessory brand Wildebeest. We sat Viv down with Jazz (above), a dog she’d never met, and it was KISS at first sight! Wildebeest [...]

Every Friday, my favorites from the past week.  INBOX ZERO! Last Friday I hit Archive on thouuuusands of emails in my nightmare of an Inbox. And over the past week I’ve totally kept up with new stuff. It makes me feel so much more in control. I’ve historically been awful at responding to emails and [...]

By Nudie Jeans in collaboration with their Turkish organic denim supplier Bossa. The limited-edition rugs are available for $599 at the brand’s concept stores, the only U.S. [...]

Easter with friends

Fifteen pounds of uncured ham. (Note to self: Chargrilled ham is unbelievably delicious, but a raw ham is not for the faint of heart.) Eight friends, two visiting from Ireland. Two dogs. One baby. Lots of chopping, dicing, scooping, steaming, pouring, peeling, flaming, taste-testing, cheersing, sipping, chatting, playing and love. Lots of love. Easter with [...]

My dear friend Pamela’s Brooklyn home on Glitter Guide. All these Virginia Woolf book covers were designed by the author’s sister, Vanessa Bell. I love this so much. Via the Etsy Tumblr You can freeze avocados! Did you know you could freeze avocados? As well as fresh herbs, eggs, citrus, opened wine and more. Game changer. [...]

Released specially for SXSW in Austin this week, the beautiful home boutique Spartan teamed up with Alyson Fox for a limited edition Spartan + Fox Baggu bag. Three things I love, together in one! This news got me on Alyson’s new website, which shows off her amazing body of work. When you have a minute, be [...]

I play Bon Iver’s self-titled second album almost every night as I rock Vivian to sleep. It’s the perfect soundtrack to the happy ending of our day — as though a camera is zooming out from the scene as I hold her head in my hand, and her cheek to my cheek.

A Cup of Jo: “Researchers from the Netherlands discovered that the largest boost in happiness from a vacation doesn’t come during or after the vacation, but instead from the simple act of planning a vacation. According to the 2010 study, ‘vacation anticipation’ generally boosts happiness for eight weeks, whereas after the vacation ‘there is hardly an effect.’” [...]

Rummey Bear’s bump. Beautiful. Gorgeous patterns and textures from J.Crew at NYFW, via The Shiny Squirrel. I love scrunch socks and legwarmers! And this week, The Sartorialist does, too.

Friday Favorites: Darkened Skies, Pad Thai

French artist Thierry Cohen superimposes the night skies of northern rural areas onto city skylines. Amazing the juxtaposition. Happy Valentine’s! Jon and I have a tradition of making Pad Thai at home — no gifts, no reservations, just a sweet candle-lit dinner in. This year was year number TEN! Above, a Thierry Cohen image of [...]
