Hair crown from Artists & Fleas

Hola Hart Beat, how was your weekend? You do anything crazy exciting? I was at work today and got the amazing hair piece thingy that I know is typical me and I want to share with you.

The pieces are all hand made and designed by Victoria for Gotham City Style based out of New York. Isn’t this the greatest thing? It combines my two loves, hair flower crowns and the 20s. Come visit New York Hart Beat and I’ll get you one.

Sup Audrey.

Sculpture photographs

Hi Hart Beat. Earlier today I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and took some pictures I’ve been wanting to take for a while. These are all photographs of different Roman and Greek sculptures. What do you think, Hart Beat?

All taken on March 23, 2013.

Neruda for friday

Hola Hart Beat. You have plans for this weekend? I’m going to try a new yoga class tonight and hopefully spend some time with my friends before work on Sunday. Also, I’m excited to start planning my trip down to DC. What do you think about this Pablo Neruda poem?

An album for the weekend

Hey Hart Beat. I had mixed emotions sending Hannah off to Spain this afternoon. I am so happy for her and excited to hear about the trip but, I also miss Spain so much and it was a reminder that I haven’t been there since July this past year.

On another note, I’ve been working from home today and am listening for the first time Norah Jones‘s newest album. Have you head it yet?

“Say Goodbye” by Norah Jones
I was a huge fan of Norah Jones back in high school (what up Sarah Horne) but I haven’t been thrilled by her albums since “Come Away With Me.” This one is blowing me away though and I can’t figure out what my favorite song from “Little Broken Hearts” is. Sweet Baby Jesus Tennessee, “She’s 22” is getting me just as much as “Little Broken Hearts.” This is a break-up album if I ever heard one. Enjoy it this weekend, Hart Beat. 

Hannah goes to Spain

Ha… gotcha there, didn’t I? Actually Hannah is going to Spain, my roommate Hannah, and she leaves tomorrow! Ah! Gene! I just spend the last hour talking her ear off about all the places she has to go when she gets to Madrid. I even drew her a Hannah Hart Beat appropriate map.

I’m so jealous. Good thing my brother is going to Barcelona this summer and I’m going to visit both him and my favorite city while he’s there. What are you doing in July? Wanna come?

Picture from two years ago.
The most beautiful city.
And, a little late post surprise. Here’s a picture of the map of Madrid I drew for Hannah… it’s not to scale but, the important things are there (like la mallorquina and red).

Just in time

Hi Hart Beat. Sorry this has been such a music heavy week, but I think that Bob, Patsy and Emmylou make up for it. Today I want to add another one to the list. Have you heard this song by Nina Simone?

“Just In Time” by Nina Simone
I’ve actually posted it here before when talking about my favorite movie “Before Sunset.” Lately though she’s been cropping up again and I want you to be a part of it Hart Beat. This woman is amazing.
Just in time you found me just in time
Before you came my time was running low
I was lost the losing dice were tossed
My bridges all were crossed nowhere to go
Now you’re here now I know where I’m going
No more doubt or fear I’ve found my way
You’re love came just in time you found me just in time
And changed my lonely nights that lucky day

Crazy

Hey Hart Beat, it’s fine. It’s just another Patsy Cine song tonight. She gets me so good every time. How is your week looking Hart Beat? My mom is coming into the city tomorrow to visit and I’m furiously planning a trip down to DC to visit some very special people. Want to come?

Crazy, I’m crazy for feeling so lonely
I’m crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
“Crazy” sung by Patsy Cline
Also, check out my other favorite (Willie) singing this one too.

Real late starter

Hey there Hart Beat. How was your Saturday? You celebrating St. Patricks Day tonight? As I’m typing this I’m looking out at the Empire State building and guess what color it is… Green! (Cue a Kid History quote here.)

Anyway, this is a pretty old song that I’ve loved for a while but for some reason lately I haven’t been able to get enough of it. What do you think Hart Beat? Wanna dance?

Neon knit cap

Last month I wrote about my favorite little black hat. Well, this month I’ve got a new hat for you. I should start a Hannah Hart Hat club. Who wants to join?

The new hat I’ve been wearing is a hunter hat, usually meant for avoiding being shot during dear hunting season (sup Maine). It serves the same purpose in Brooklyn, my friends can see me from blocks away and bikers in lower manhattan avoid me like the plague.

Full disclosure, the orange hunting hat I’ve been wearing is my moms. Like all my favorite clothes, she owned them first. Typisch mom. Also, I haven’t been able to get enough of this album recently. Thank god spring is finally here.

On Thursday when this article was on the front page of the NYTimes style section my mom called excitedly to tell me that we’re ahead of the knit hat crowd. Too funny mom.
