Oh Hart Beat, it’s my least favorite time of year!! The end of summer is here in all it’s sun setting early and tomato busting glory. Even though it makes me so sad I think this week will actually be okay because it is Summer Week for Food52. Every year the Food52 office closes down for the week before Labor Day to give all of us a good rest before holiday season descends. So what does that mean for me and my life? I’m going to try to take a whole week to RELAX.
I’m going to the Cape for a week with family and I’m so excited to take a break from work, from the city and spend some time getting my mind ready for the Fall and stress of the holidays at work. This past month has been hard (I’ll tell you about it soon I promise) but this week is going to be all about rest. In fact, right now I’m sitting on my mom’s couch eating cookies and watching The Princess Bride. It’s pretty much heaven on Earth. So Hart Beat, expect some posts coming from me this week as I wrap my head around this whole relaxation thing. I miss you! I have so much to share! Talk to you soon.
I’m not sure what it is but there’s something about summer that makes me think about French films. It might be because growing up in the Berkshires the local movie theater always carried the newest French movie. Over the years I’ve written about other movies that I loved (check out the list below for other recommendations!) but tonight I want to share a new trailer for My King (or Mon Roi en français) that premiers tomorrow in NYC. I haven’t seen the movie (yet!) but this trailer got me so good. According to a Brooklyn Magazine article the movie is tragic (of course it’s French) and romantic (again, duh) which is great because those are two of my favorite things.
Right!?!? I want to see it so badly and I don’t even really know what it’s about other than a tragic love story. The movie comes out tomorrow at Lincoln Center in the city.. Can’t wait for it to come closer to mr in Brooklyn.
Hi Hart Beat. How’s your August going so far? I feel like mine’s off to a good start. we’ve already had a full moon, it’s been as hot as I want it to be in the city, and I’ve already had so many great summer nights. Fingers crossed things keep up. One thing I’ve been working
Browsing the interwebs last night I came across a gem of an illustrator. Have you seen the work by Sally Nixon? I hadn’t but as soon as I saw her illustrations of women in every day moments I knew she needed to be shared here on Hart Beat. Each scene calls my name one hundred million
Oh what a question. Right, Hart Beat? One of the things I struggle with day to day at work, at home, writing this blog, riding the train and yada yada is how to prioritize. My mind works at one thousand miles an hour and multi-tasking isn’t a skill, it’s something I inherently do. All in
Morning, Hart Beat! Thankfully for you, me, and all the other hot hot hot New Yorkers out there the weather has broke! That dreaded humidity that was bearing down on us is gone and we can finally leave our apartments and BREATH. To celebrate I wanted to share a summer straw hat from United by Blue
Hi Hart Beat. Have you read Sweetbitter yet? It’s one of the books I keep seeing on the train in Brooklyn and for good reason. I’m not going to go into a detailed review here but my friend Sarah over at Food52 wrote a great write-up that I stand by. One thing that Sarah pointed out
Hiiiiii Hart Beat! It is hot hot hot here in Brooklyn. I mean, of course it is, it’s July. We’re in the weeds of summer and other than escaping to Rockaway or the Berks every weekend I’ve also been day dreaming of a cool, bright and airy apartment. So, in that vain here are a few
Oh Hart Beat, aren’t you happy to be alive right now? I was talking with a friend the other day about how we are to be woman alive right now in today’s world. With Hillary taking place as the presumptive Democrat Party Nominee (!!!) we’re living in a world where we are not only
Hi Hart Beat! I was resting my legs all week long and am late with a post, I know. Lucky for you here are some articles that I did spend time reading this week that I thought you might like to see. P and I are going up to stay with my parents this weekend
Hola Hart Beat. God am I tired. And no, not the kind of tired from being “busy” as the NY Times is always rallying against but the true to the bone, my body is exhausted and achy tired. Why? The answer is simple. For the past week I’ve been bicycling across Northern California to raise money
Hi Hart Beat!!! Happiest of Fridays! This is an exciting Friday for me since I’m actually writing this post to you from the sky. I’m flying to San Francisco! Starting TOMORROW I’m going to be joining my Dad and about one hundred other riders in Fortuna, CA to start a 340 mile bike ride along
