New York in the springtime

I don't know if it's because I'm working at a publisher that values health and wellness above all else, but I'm living a healthier life these past few weeks. I've discarded my morning cappuccino habit for green juice and my alarm clock has gone off at 6am every morning this week. And I'm actually getting out of bed (without grumbling) to greet the sun over the east river with some yoga. Oh, and I haven't eaten meat in almost two weeks.

Also, cheers for making it to the weekend! It's a holiday one here in the US, and I'm spending it in Pennsylvania. Here are some links for you to peruse, hopefully with a cool beverage (or a green juice!) in hand.


So apparently summer's biggest trend is the tea length skirt. Identifying something as that season's "biggest trend" usually drives me in the opposite direction. Except that these skirts are so lovely and flow-y and when thinking about the sticky summer days that lie ahead, I could definitely use some of the skirts that the writers at Clementine Daily suggest.

Check out this homemade pore reducing mask from Allison at Petit Elefant.

Not only is Erin Boyle of Reading my Tea Leaves on the verge of welcoming her first baby, but she still found the time to create the cutest leather drawer pulls I've ever seen. Plus they look super easy.

Heather from Habitually Chic is making a move to Paris and her depiction of Parisian skies on grey days make me think of grey Irish days. (That doesn't really count as an interior design post - but Heather's mostly an interiors blogger, so that's where I'm shelving this post.)


If you're looking for a way to plan your meals check out Rachel's ideas for a weekly meal plan on Heart of Light.

Molly Yeh shares her recipe for homemade bubble tea on Food52.

It's no secret that I'll eat almost anything with a fried egg on it. Toast, pizza, pasta, whatever. So, these goat cheese and egg toasts with peas and dill from Kate at Cookie + Kate are going on my saturday night easy dinner list.

Ok I don't want to turn on my oven in the summertime any more than you do, but you should make an exception for this Vietnamese caramelized shrimp pizza from Stephanie at I am a Food Blog.

The dog watches me do yoga in the mornings now.

Have a wonderful weekend - holiday or not. I hope to be here a lot more in coming weeks - I miss this space.
