Thanksgiving ++



I think I finally get Instagram.

Always the latecomer to the party....







This Thanksgiving, we traveled up to Maine to celebrate the holiday with my brother, and congratulate him on buying his first house (!!)   The whole family stayed with him, and he's still making himself at home there.  So there were a few less comforts than I'm used to.  Such as, we slept on the floor in his living room, there was no internet or TV, and I showered once in five days.   Things were cramped and cold, but also filled with lots of spirited conversation and love.  


... And all the pretty photo ops I had planned in my head went poof like a billow of smoke  :P

But amid the chaos, I found it a little easier to whip out my phone and capture little moments, rather than take out my camera.  I do love the camera, and obviously it takes amazing photos... but it can be so unwieldy!  Thus my new love of Instagram was born.



Anyway, we got lucky and it snowed the most majestic snow on Thanksgiving day.  We ate while the white was blinding us out the windows.


(some pictures from the camera!)

We found some time to go out around town and explore the cute little shops (a favorite hobby of mine... pics below!)  We also played games, visited thrift stores, and talked A LOT :)  It was really nice to see my brother again, as he lives so far away.

I think I'll be updating my Instagram a lot more often.  It's such an easy way to take photos and chronicle life.   I FINALLY get it!!  So if you're not following me already, do it here!!   I'll continue to post some of the images here and flesh out stories, as well as post outfits, recipes, and anything else that strikes my fancy :)

Hope everyone had a great holiday!  Totally psyched for Christmas.

Lately ++

chantilly



Updatez:

+ It's been super cold in New York this week.  I pulled out my winter coat, and all my thick sweaters.  Even threw out a few ratty ones.  (RIP, sweaters)

+ The top on my guitar cracked!!  It's making sounds that are all buzzy and sad now.  Have to take it to the guitar doctor...

+ Anticipating changes on the horizon, yet the day-to-day schedule remains light.  I've got my students and various freelance jobs... but shows are winding down for the fall, progress on the EP is (still) slow, and I haven't even dreamed about full schedule of blog posts in a long time.   I'm used to the feeling of filling my days up with EVERYTHING POSSIBLE... because in NY if you're not busy, why are you even here?  :P  But I'm trying to re-learn stillness.  Waiting to be organically inspired to start new projects again, rather than forcing it.

+ Watching:  Masters of Sex, American Horror Story (yawn), & re-watching the Walking Dead from the beginning.  It's a trip to journey back to how the series started off... such a completely different world and characters.  Although I fast-forward through some of the gorier scenes.  Like Otis's death... ew :(

+ I'm always on the hunt for new shows... anyone have any good recommendations?

+ I forgot how I came across it, but I kind of want to buy every fragrance on this site.

+ Do you ever notice that the worst possible thing happens... and then the best possible thing happens almost immediately after?  Or vice versa?  I wonder why.


So... yeah :)  Anyway... these photos are some forgotten shots from the past months.  (I might've even posted a couple of them before, haha :)  

Hope all is well in your world.

I feel like it's high time for a brunch post around here.

This was special occasion, as we have not been to brunch in months... a travesty!

White Witch

I was feeling a little down the other day, so I just had to put on some bright white.  I stomped around the Lower East Side on a Saturday night, conjuring images of Fiona Goode in my head (yes, I'm a bit in love with AHS Coven lately...)  Chin up, hips swinging, and feeling a little bit magical.

Sometimes it's fun to pretend you're someone else :)
