We're having strange weather at the moment. Like New York is unsure whether she wants to fully move on from winter and embrace spring, or perhaps she wants to skip spring all together and jump right into summer, as evidenced by the upcoming 79 degrees predicted for this weekend. Either way, this weather is playing havoc with our immune systems, and everyone I know has had some kind of horrible soulsucking cold in the past few weeks.
I'm just getting over my nasal clogged adventure and was thrilled to see this post today on Remodelista about treating colds naturally with tea. With ideas for making tea with various combinations of mint, lavender, and chamomile and sources to buy the teapots and strainers, this is definitely a post I'll be returning to again and again.
For everyone still mourning the loss of the great Domino, the new seasonal version was supposed to be out April 17th. However Curbed has just located the magazine (called Domino Quick Fixes) a week early on several newsstands around Manhattan. I think I'm going to try and pick one up before I get stampeded by the herds. Curbed is calling this Domino Day and is doing a fun update every hour with images from the pages.
In other work-related news, I'm super excited about the beautiful book I Brake for Yard Sales that I worked on with the lovely Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer. It's only been out two weeks and is selling really really well. Her advice on shopping at flea markets, thrift stores, and estate sales is invaluable and I learned so much while editing the book.
Your blog tour wouldn't be complete without some giveaways. Oh Joy! has a giveaway today of a beautiful top and her very own teaspoon collection designed for Leif. And while we are on the topic of spoons, have you guys seen the pretty checkered teaspoons for sale at Anthropologie? Dying to have them in every color.
Check out Little Green Notebook today through Sunday for a sweet smelling giveaway from the Charlotte, North Carolina-based interiors shop Isabella. You could win a Nest bamboo candle, a Scents and Feel hand towel, and some gorgeous Savon hand soap.
Dinner tonight is going to be avocado pesto pasta from A Cozy Kitchen. How yummy does that sound?
