A Few Things, Wednesday Afternoon Edition

Hey Hart Beat. How’s you’re Wednesday? I’ve been back at work for a few days now and it’s finally hitting me that I don’t actually live in Costa Rica 😭😭😭. To distract myself a little bit here are a few things that have been going on in my life this week. You got any for me, Hart Beat?

1. MR. DARCY IS COMING TO NEW YORK!!! Well, not really. But his sexy lake drenched shirt sure is! My mom texted me this morning the following and, needless to say, I share her sentiment. “Colin Firth is on the front page of the NYTIMES. Oh la la.” Yup, Mom you get me. Read the article here.

2. This amazing song from new (to me) singer LÃ¥psley. She sounds a liiiiitle bit like Adele which I love but the style of the music is so up my alley. I’ve been listening to it non stop. What do you think?

3. Just made a highlight and haircut appointment at Fumi, a Brooklyn hair studio in Gowanus. I’ve never been before and am excited to try someplace new. A coworker recommended them and as soon as I looked at their space online I was like YAS. Looks cool right? I’ll take some pictures while I’m there and let you know how it is. (I heard the owner bakes cookies everyday….)

4. So, so, so happy to be back home with Pedro and the boys. Pedro gave Melo and Bandit baths and hair cuts while I was away and they are looking extra cute. Here’s a pic of Melo yawning right after waking up. My heart.

New Year, New Me

I love this list written by Woody Guthrie in 1942. Most of them still apply which I love. “Don’t get lonesome.” and “Stay glad.” are two of my favorites. The list is below in case you’re having trouble reading Mr. Guthrie’s handwriting. Cheers to you, Hart Beat, this wintery Wednesday.

Christmas Music for you

Hey Hart Beat. Long time no see! These last few weeks have been beyond busy at work and I hate to say it but ye old blog has suffered the consequences. I promise to be better this week. I am starting to hate all the excuses that begin every blog post (I’m sure you are too).

Tonight let’s talk about something holiday because it’s THE HOLIDAY SEASON LALALALALALALALA. Other than watching some of my favorite Christmas movies, I’ve been also listening to some great holiday music. We all love the tried and true holiday songs (hey Mariah hey) but I’ve also put a list together of some of the other indie Christmas songs that might not be in your rotation but should be added right now.

#1. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) from Slow Club

#2. What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? from The Head and the Heart

#3. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas from Cat Power

#4. Jingle Bell Rock from Rogue Wave

#5. I’ll Be Home for Christmas from She & Him

P.S. If you’re looking for more take a look at the new Spotify Indie Christmas.

P.P.S. The wreath from the photo up top comes from a little shop at Food52. It smells amazing and you can buy it here.

Daylight Savings is a bummer

Oh Hart Beat. My least favorite day has come and gone. Daylight savings is here and today was the first day that I really felt it. Getting out of work at 6pm and having it be pitch black made me so sad that I came straight home, ordered a banana-strawberry smoothie, and am now streaming Friends. Yup, it’s that kind of night. I’m sure there are others of you out there and so, to try and boost all of our spirits with some fun things / warmer things to take our minds off the quickly approaching winter..

An amazing (and happy!) print from Fieldguided that would look great in my kitchen. Peonies aren’t my favorite it man this flower looks like it is getting sun and I guess I could pretend to get sun from it…

Happy people jumping. As someone who has tried the occasional jumping photo I can say that this is hard and now I feel like I need to try again.

Starting to daydream about my trip this winter to Costa Rica. Have you been before, Hart Beat? I’m counting the days…

This cover of “That’s How Strong My Love Is” by The Rolling Stones. I love the original but man, this one is calling my name.

And that’s it! Do you have any other mood pick-me-uppers to share on this sad sunlight-less night?

#HappyFriday: FOMO, the Joan Didion economy & more

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 6.55.31 AM

This week. THIS WEEK. It’s over and that is all I want to say about it right now. What are you doing this weekend, Hart Beat? Pedro and I are staying in Brooklyn since we both try and avoid Manhattan like the plague on the weekends. I’m hoping to take a nap one of the two days and hopefully get a bike ride in. Simple times.

If you’re around and want some things to read here are five articles that I found super interesting this week. See you Monday, Hart Beat!

– FOMO is so real The New York Times is even writing about it.

– Science finally proves that summer makes us lazy. Are we surprised? No. Are we upset? I’m not..

– The addictive phenomenon of things fitting perfectly into other things.

– If I die and go to Montauk then I want to live in the Montauk Beach House.

– The new Joan Didion economy.

5 things I’ve learned since turning 25: Small torture devices

Welcome back, Hart Beat! On Thursday I shared the first of five things that I’ve learned since turning twenty-five this winter. On Friday I got a little excited with the AMAZING NEWS that hit our country so I didn’t keep my promise… Anyway, today you can find the second thing I’ve learned since turning twenty-five.

2. Shoes with heels are small torture devices.

Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 5.55.38 PM

I’m not sure if this realization came about from turning twenty-five or if it was from the influence of my brilliant, sneaker collector boyfriend (hi Pedro) but it’s an important one. Before my twenty-fifth birthday I swore that I would go to my grave wearing shoes with some kind of a heel. Even my sandals had a kitty heel!

I now would like to retract that statement. Either it’s because Birkenstocks are here to stay and Pedro bought me the best pair of nike airs for my birthday I’m officially revoking my previous statement. Sure heels make your legs look extra toned, give you the height akin to a goddess called Carolyn and make any outfit look pulled together but, ladies, flats don’t make your feet swell. Sneakers don’t give you blisters, loafers don’t twist your ankles and flat boots don’t make it impossible to walk fast past all those slow tourists.

All in all since turning twenty-five I noticed myself each and every morning reaching for the pancake flat shoes in the closet. Zero regrets, Hart Beat! In the words of Chris Rock for Kanye West, I thank you.

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 11.33.15 AM

Hi Hart Beat. Happy Friday! Do you have any plans this weekend? Pedro and I are heading up to visit my parents for the weekend and get in some good time away from the city. Have I mentioned that summer is my favorite time of year? Anyway, until Monday here are five articles that I loved reading this week and I think you will too.

1. And North gives 8 great places to stay upstate when getting out of the city.

2. The king of tapas.

3. A great write-up about Calliope, a store that was represented at the Be a Boss event, and the building that the store is in.

4. The creative benefits of solitude.

5. The most hilarious account of a cooking fail I’ve ever read. Molly Yeh, you get me.

#HappyFriday: Mexico City, Rosé & more

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 10.35.23 PM

Hiiiii Hart Beat. Happy, happy Friday! What are you doing this weekend? Pedro is off to Miami for the newest Solexchange (he started it with some friends a few years ago!) and my mom is coming down to stay in Brooklyn with me. It will be our job to watch the dogs. Melo and Bandit are in for a spa weekend (don’t worry Pedro, they’ll be fine). Tonight I can’t wait to drink some rosé on the roof of Eataly. Can it be six o’clock now?

Until then, here are my five favorite articles that I read this week. It’s kind of a travel / life / inspiration combination. Besos, Hart Beat.

1. A great imaginary vacation to a small Mexico City neighborhood.

2. I get it Kai, it’s amazing to own you’re own store. IT’S NOT MY DREAM OR ANYTHING.

3. Why doesn’t the US have trains as amazing as Europe?

4. Australia is so cool.

5. Even Jemima Kirke knows it’s hard to get in shape.
