Hair, More Important Things & the Flu

Morning Hart Beat. It’s been the worst week. It’s been the worst week for me personally, for our country, and for humanity in general. I think. I don’t really know anymore. This blog has always been a place for me to come and distract myself from the world and I’m starting to have a hard

Making Oprah

Hi Hart Beat. It’s a rainy Tuesday night here in Brooklyn so I’m hanging out at home, making some fajitas and listening to the history of the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Four Fall Things

Hi Hart Beat! The time that we’ve (at least I’ve) been dreading is here: the end of summer. To make it seem a little less depressing here are four things I’m looking forward to this season. One.

Daily Routine: Café au Lait Trick

Hola Hart Beat. It’s definitely Thursday and it’s definitely rainy so that means we have to talk about coffee. Last year around this time I tried to give up coffee cold turkey. It didn’t work and since then I have been happily back on the caffeine train. My typical order oscillate between a regular latte and

Simple Matters

Hi Hart Beat! Happy Sunday! Pedro and I have been playing it low key this weekend so I’ve been spending lots of time going through books that I’ve got piled up all over the apartment. One book that I read in February that I keep finding myself being drawn back to has been on my
