Little Silver Ring


So!  It's Christmas Eve.  Where did the time go?

Everyone will probably be out now doing last-minute shopping, or making cooking preparations.  But hopefully some of you can stick around for a few minutes to talk about jewelry with me :)





A few beautiful trinkets.... ring from OneNecklace

Thanksgiving ++



I think I finally get Instagram.

Always the latecomer to the party....

Lately ++





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.

BRUNCH


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!

Happy Friday ++ Lately




Old picture.  New outlook.


Lately I've been ::

+ Enjoying a bit too much coffee
+ Adjusting to a new roommate who just moved in (who is really great!)
+ Obsessing over a few new lip products (hey there, Lipstick Queen Big Bang gloss... where have you been all my life?)
+ Listening to "Cruel World" by Lana Del Rey on repeat
+ Trying out hair extensions for the first time!  I took the plunge and ordered some.  Mixed feelings.  May report back soon...
+ Writing lots/ trying to have some sort of consistent spiritual practice
+ Thinking this is going to be a cozy little fall/ winter.  I'm ready :)


Have a great weekend, everyone.

xoxoxo

Stories ++ Salem & Halloween


Spooky carnival...

salem halloween salem halloween



Ok, so I have to be honest... the pictures are really pretty, but this night was one of those times where things go so horribly wrong, it's just hysterical.  And now that I've told the story about it a jillion times, I'm ready to embrace the absurdity of it all....

Happy Halloween!


So we're headed up to Boston this weekend for my show, and taking a little side-trip up to Salem today!  Actually, I should be putting things together and packing as I'm typing this, but here I am.

Honestly Halloween is usually one of those things where I go out mid-day, have a coffee, smile at all the cute little kids scampering around in the street, and go home.  But this year I felt inspired, and picked up a simple witch hat and broom from Party City.  I think I will put together a very Misty Day-like ensemble and be a White Witch..


Hope everyone has a fun & safe Halloween!!

Coconut Rum Punch Recipe

Have you ever had a good rum punch? If not, consider this your introduction! I don't know about you, but I love coconut rum anything, and this is no exception! This cocktail is fruity, sweet, and delicious

Coconut rum punch is that it's a drink that's pretty obscure. But it shouldn't be! Honestly, for fruity tropical drink lovers, it's pretty much a holy grail, and you'll soon see why!
