Hey Hart Beat. If you are a fan of this blog then you how I feel about Madewell. The brand has been around for a while and it’s one that I’ve worn pretty consistently since moving to New York. This fall the brand released not only their new fall lookbook (shot in Rome) but also a series of videos that they created with three creative women.
The three women, writer Christina Pérez, florist Lisa Przystup, and musician Adeline Michèle, all put together different outfits that Madewell has up on their site. The brand also put together three short videos that you can watch on their youtube channel. The compilation one is here (you might even recognize the song) and I thought you might like to see. It does, unfortunately have the ability to make you start to go “oh man why isn’t my life as perfect as these girls and how come I don’t look that casually beautiful all the time??”
I’ll forgive Madewell though since sometimes you need a little bit to dream about. Also, shout out to Lisa Przystup aka @brass_tacks who lives in Greenpoint!
Hi Hart Beat! I’m back! Did you miss me? I sure missed you although Pedro and I did have an amazing time out in Portland. More to come on that soon..
Today I want to share a secret trick I learned during the Food52 summer week. On Wednesday of last week I decided early in the morning to make a trek up to the Upper East side and visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m sorry to say that even though I live in New York I don’t really take advantage of the amazing museums and galleries that we have all of the city. The MET is an especially great visit since they ask for “suggested donations” which means you can pay whatever you feel like. As a resident that makes it even easier to go since you’re not shelling out $30 every time.
Since I had an early morning inspiration to visit the MET, I got the the museum at 10am on the dot when they opened the doors. And that’s my secret! Since I know where all the popular impressionist art is in the museum (second floor to your left) I booked it straight up there and, no joke, I had the ENTIRE section to myself for a solid 45 minutes. Seriously. It was just me, the guards, Monet, van Gogh, Degas, Renoir, Cassatt, and a few others. Crazy.
I was in such shock and amazement that I took some pictures to show you how empty it was. Even though I normally hate it when people take photos in museums I felt like this was a special occasion…
So there you go, Hart Beat. Next time you want to go to the MET go at 10am on a Wednesday and you’ll have the museum experience you’ve always dreamed of having.
Hey Hart Beat. I know what you’re thinking, TODAY IS NOT FRIDAY HANNAH, WHY ARE YOU GIVING US LINKS?? The answer, Hart Beat? Portland. Pedro and I jet off tomorrow morning hella early (thanks Southwest!) so in anticipation of how busy we’ll be drinking coffee, eating from food trucks and general merriment, here are some great links that I loved reading this week.
Hi Hart Beat. Now that Pedro and I are finished panting our kitchen we’re working on hanging up some paintings and such around the apartment. Other than some of my moms paintings and a few photographs that I’ve collected over the years, I’m thinking of ordering some of Pedro and my own photographs to hang around our apartment. Enter Artifact Uprising.
I’ve been a fan of Artifact Uprising for a few years now and think that their calendars and cards make some of the best gifts I’ve seen. All of the products that AU makes are both simple and lasting and these frames look like the perfect combination of the two as well. I just want all of them, Hart Beat…
