lazy days... | Chantilly

lazy days...

on friday, we layed down some sweet harmonies for the EP at saul's place...

saturday was a (relaxing but) dull, do-nothing day...

by the time sunday rolled around, i was feeling antsy. so even though it was cold and rainy, i made the 20-minute treck to bedford avenue in williamsburg to walk around amongst the pretty people.

some arbitrary photos followed...

necklaces being sold on the street

grabbing a bite at bagelsmith, looking out the window...

it's nice to have some alone time. i find it to be completely regenerating and healing. of course, one of my favorite places to do so is cafes.


nothing makes me happier than iced coffee, and a time and place to write and people-watch.

i found a nice new espresso bar on bedford ave., on my way to beacon's closet. i love observing all the artsy people, yuppies, and poseurs alike. they drift in and drift out, cosuming their coffee and sweets over a quiet book or conversation.

i gawk for awhile, then busily get back to writing in my journal... hovering protectively over it like someone will actually care...

(i made this journal myself!!)

and, this concludes how i love to spend a day off if i can get a chance. moody afternoons in coffee shops are always time well spent for me.

off topic, but does anyone out there watch game of thrones?

it's a new show we've been getting into and i've become addicted! i love me shows with the imperfect, morally-grey characters, and there are plenty to go around here.

tyrion lannister is a favorite so far :) what with his snappy one-liners and love of whores. daenerys is also turning out to be FRIGGING AWESOME. anxious to see more :)


  1. I love to have some alone time, too! And cafes are my favorite places to go to. I hate Starbucks or coffee stores that are chains, though ... It's hard to find store that are not chains here :(; I miss that so much about Argentina.

    Hope you have a great week! ;)


  2. Nice photos and writing. I could feel that you had nice relaxing day off :)

  3. Lovely photos! I always love alone time to grab a coffee and relax... it's just a necessity sometimes! :)

  4. Hello! Thanks for the comment - growing up in small towns without paved streets you have to learn to walk with heels on all types of terrain! The picture were taken on a path that leads from the backyard to the road so it isn't as treacherous as it looks :)

  5. I'm with ya on the iced coffee! It's the best on a summer day mmmmmm yum.

  6. Oh, coffee and people watching are my favorite things too!!! Especially in NYC! I'm Jealous. haha
