Coming home

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

My sister, Genevieve, returned from a job in Cambodia last week and it was fun to catch up because we hadn't seen each other in almost 6 months. The first few days she rested, but after that we hit some of my favorite parts of the city, like the High Line. It's the perfect time of the year to be in the city. 

And it's always the perfect time to come home.

Interior design

Lovely sisters, Porter and Hollister Hovey (could those names be any cooler?) are selling off 100 of their favorite pieces on One Kings Lane on May 23rd and I'm definitely checking it out.

Ok I always daydream about creating or crafting my own art. I may have finally found something I'll actually do in How About Orange's simple stamp DIY project.

SF Girl By Bay took a trip to Japanese kitchen accessories store Umami Mart in Oakland, and now I really wanna go too.

Emily Henderson's master bedroom makeover is to die for. As a girl in search of some decent bedside tables, this post rocked.


Adrianna at A Cozy Kitchen comes up with the BEST flavor combos. Check out this  apricot sage hazelnut galette.

Lindsay at Love and Olive Oil created a delicious looking wild mushroom papardelle that I'm totally in to.

I just learned how to use coconut oil and chocolate to create a hard candy shell on Hither and Thither!

Other things I'm into

I went to see Great Gatsby on opening night last week, and wow, just wow. I was mesmerized by the 3D effects, and Leo. What else is there to say? Leo, Leo, Leo. I've loved him ever since i saw him in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. (I remember playing "Pretty Piece of Flesh" from the soundtrack over and over on the drive to high school every day with my sister, Julie.)

I have the lovely Jessica to thank for a recent Nashville addiction. Like, watching episodes on my iphone as I walk to the subway in the morning addicted. Connie Britton + Hayden Panettiere = heaven.

Everyone needs to head over to say hi to Allie at Hyperbole and a Half (if you haven't already). She's been struggling with depression and this is her first post back in 18 months. And as usual, her post is brilliant and terrifying and funny and totally, totally real. I've missed her, and I'm so glad she's back.


  1. It is always nice to see family again after an extended amount of time apart, glad you two ladies are having a great time together again :)

    And I am so happy Allie is back, too. I love her site so much (the post about the dogs when they moved is SO GOOD), it's wonderful to see something new and equally hilarious and heartfelt from her.

    1. aw thanks, Eva - being back with family is always good.

      And yes, i missed Allie too!

  2. Don't see Django Unchained if you want to keep loving Leo...

    1. Yeah I heard bad things about Django altogether, actually. Violent and drags on. I want to see Gatsbyyyy! But I'll trade a night with the girlies any day. :)

    2. hmmm okay, won't be watching that then. Thanks!

  4. There's certainly a lot to know about this issue. I like all the points you've made.

    Here is my web blog ... klimatyzacja

  5. Hi there! PS you are in!

    Does your sister have a blog? Reason being I am now so interested in Cambodia and would love to know and hear about her experience there. I intend on going back in possibly Feb of next year. I was so moved there but want to make sure I make the most of my time when I get there...Many thanks for coming by as I know you must be sooooo busy. ;)

    1. She tried, she failed:
      But feel free to get in touch I have endless stories!
