MothA Dahling!

I somehow had time to watch Grey Gardens TWICE this weekend. The remake with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange is absolutely fantastic. Drew's ensemble at the beginning of the movie is retro, chic and absolutely to die for. Lex and I are anxiously awaiting the original Grey Gardens documentary to arrive. Here's a snippet from the original film!

Canyon Ranch beach resort

We rocked out on the beach, in the infinity pool and downward dogged at Canyon Ranch resort this weekend. It was wonderful up until we were served paper straws with our smoothies that instantly disintegrated in our mouths. Eco friendly is my middle name but not in this case. That was my only qualm with the entire weekend. Miami Mameee


Lex introduced to me the wonderful world of Publix this weekend in Miami. How can a grocery store be so splendid? Put aside the superfluous Arty Lang cupcake at crumbs and bite into a simple vanilla publix cupcake...It's heaven in a bite. Thanks Lex!

Jane Birkin!

I've always admired Charlotte Gainsbourg and never given her long-limbed, beautiful Mother much thought until as of late. I'm late to the punch...I know.

The Perfect Spring Snack

As a recessionist, it's important to spend less on dining out and use some mind expanding creativity to make snacks that can't be bought from any old bodega.
Checkout this scrumptious grilled cinnamon bruschetta with strawberries from tastespotting.

Cherry Blossoms!

Every year I miss the infamous Cherry Blossom fest at The Botanical Gardens in Prospect Heights. I always intend to go and the day I finally make it, it's....over (tear). Heads up folks! It's here.

I'm as immature as they get and will always be giggly when an adult says "penis", "pulsate" or "quiver" but what does this mean: "It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging," - Anderson Cooper
I took it from Sully and I'm just as confused as he is. Aren't we all thinking the exact same thing?

Reality Bites

"There's no point to any of this. It's all just a... a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes. So I take pleasure in the details. You know... a quarter-pounder with cheese, those are good, the sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain, the moment where your laughter becomes a cackle... and I sit back and I smoke my Camel Straights and I ride my own melt."

The Selby shop! Sold at Collette in Paris.
Wouldn't it be dope to paint our faces and wear these?

Alyssa Monks

Sally sent me this painting by Alyssa Monks that I wanted to share. I love that she's in the shower and it seems very parallel with this rainy day we're having in NYC.
