I hope you're all joining me here after a restful weekend. It was a weekend where I barely left my neighborhood, but luckily Central Park is within my radius. And it was one glorious weekend for the park, indeed. 

Another note: I had to force myself to stop playing candy crush just to hit publish on this post. And I'm not even on a six figure level (I have heard of people in the 300 levels). Is anyone else addicted?

Anyway, despite candy crack crush, I still managed to find some fun stuff. Here is what I'm loving this week.

Has everyone seen the new Domino format where the site operates as a shopping portal? What do you think about it? I feel like it might be dangerous for my already endangered wallet. On the other hand, I'm not so ambivalent about the wonderful Little Green Notebook's Jenny Komenda becoming an online editor for Domino! I couldn't love that choice more.

I love seeing a tastefully decorated small space, it's such a challenge compared to a larger space, I think. This pretty apartment belonging to Danielle Armstrong was featured on This is Glamorous recently, and is totally inspiring.

Displaying antlers and horns in one's home is a controversial topic, but you can't argue with the powerful presence they bring to a room. Check out Slim Paley's incredible stag roundup.


If I wanted to preserve summer in a bottle, I'd do it this way, with basil flower vinegar from The Yellow House.

The Forest Feast blog just turned 2 years old and I feel so lucky that I get to work on Erin's stunning cookbook with her. You guys are going to go crazy for this book.

As the weather turns colder, I turn to stews and soups and my fingers are itching to try out this moroccan-style vegetable chickpea stew from the talented Laura at The First Mess.

hard to define

I love when a site deviates from usual topics to address interesting issues. This one on Design Sponge about the place of a book cover in this world of anonymous e-readers was really fascinating.

Leandra at Man Repeller never fails to make me laugh. Her recent exploration of bra vs. no bra was no exception.


  1. I won't even go near candy crush...I am the schmuck who got into FarmVille creating the perfect homestead!

    1. haha I remember that one, candy crush is more addicting, seriously, stay away.

  2. I am so jealous that you live so close to Central Park! SOMEDAY I will travel to NYC and I'll get to stroll around Central Park :) It's at the top of my vacation destination list.
    I haven't downloaded candy crush because I've heard how addicting it is. I don't have the time to get sucked into that game... because I realllllllllllly get sucked into that kind of stuff. What is it anyway? Like, what kind of game?

    1. Courtney, central park is truly amazing, 10 years living near it and i still find new parts to enjoy. So, candy crush is basically tetris but with candy, and then as the levels go up you have to pop more and more layers and then there are these annoying chocolate pieces that keep reappearing, arrrrrgh it's frustrating and so so satisfying too. DON'T download the app!

  3. I don't know how you have time for a life + 2 girls + your billion reality shows + a job + a blog + now candy crush??!!!? Haha, so glad I've never played. I like that all the comments are about this.

    1. well candy crush can be played on the subway commute AND while aforementioned reality shows are playing in the background. I can multitask!

  4. great round-up! so intrigued by that basil vinegar...


Thank you for commenting, I love your feedback!
