Last night my coworker and I headed to Tribeca to hit up the Steven Alan sample sale which was in itself enough excitement to last me a week. As we were walking around aimlessly trying to find the hidden door, I spotted two chicks walking down the sidewalk eating BAGUETTE SAMMIES WRAPPED IN CUTE PAPER BAGS! I literally chased them down the street to find out where they got them. With mouths full of bread, they pointed to the adorable little storefront of All Good Things.
So after purchasing some chambray dog scarves, a ROMPER WITH FOXES ON IT and a striped sweater at Steven Alan, Julia and I bopped down the street to the most magical place in all the land.
So just to let you know, this is one of those places that is secretly run by fairies and gnomes. It is the only possible way that such a perfect mix of flowers and gifts and cheese and beer and BAGUETTES and bearded butchers and florists with side braids could ever be curated in such an enchanting way. While I waited for my turkey (duh) and artichoke panini to get pressed, I wandered around like a major creep and snapped some pics so you could see for yourself.
Have a good weekend tootsie pops. I am excited to return home tonight to Jack and the pups.
YES! It’s snowing here in NYC (where I am for werk)! It’s the kind where the snowflakes are huge and fluffy and just kind of dance around in the air not really falling directly to the ground. There are actually a couple of flakes outside my hotel window right now trying to get in here and enjoy coffee in bed with me.
I love snow. It is pretty and peaceful and looks amazing frozen in clumps to Fern and Rosy and Jack’s beards. I love the sound it makes crunching under my feet and I love how people look when they come in from the outdoors with snow on their hat and bright red cheeks. I also love to eat snow. Either right off the ground or sprinkled on my pizza or even as a healthy alternative to nacho cheese.
One more thing I love about winter and snow is the opportunity to bundle your booty up! Just this past weekend I packed away my plethora of string bikinis to make room in my closet for sweaters, long undies and wool camp socks. I love layering on the warm duds to go walk around in the woods with Jack and the pups. I’ve ordered these furry mittens and am thinking maybe this year I’ll get me some new snow boots… the ones below are named Carly boots so I mean, they should probably just give them to me for free.
Stay warm, homies!
1) technical parka with quilted lining 2) queensland rugby beanie 3) sorel conquest carly boots 4) quilted dog print joggers 5) lux fur mittens

Happy birthday to my favoritist person in the whole wide world.
What the what? Blogging on a Saturday!? Oh no she di’int!
I am here to share a little ditty of knick knacks I pulled together that I must have for our living room. Jack and I spend most of our time in the family room (do people call it that?) watching the boob tube and toasting our bums (okay, just my bum) by the fire. Our living room rarely gets used but this is mostly because it’s like empty as hell.
I’ve got our upholsterer lined up for December to cover four chairs for the room and once those bad boys are done, it will start to feel more cozy. Also, my mum made us an amazing quilt to hang on the tall wall between the windows. Now I just need to start collecting little creature comforts like the ones below. In fact, as soon as I hang up with you guys, I’m gonna bop over to Jayson Home and Garden and purchase this vintage ram.
Have yerselves a fantastic weekend. And a shout out to my little peanut butter cookie, Rosy, who turns 2 today!
1) bennington lamp 2) sammamish bird woodblock print 3) vintage ceramic ram 4) bone china skull votive 5) monogram coasters 6) chief pillow 7) brass peace sign
Where’ve you been all my life?
Let’s get random today. I’ve been a busy bonnie at werk the past couple weeks and earned myself a morning off. After just sleeping 11 hours my brain is a fog farm right now so let’s just look at some images that make me happy and call it a day…
First off, let’s hear it for the introverts! image
My man, Louie C. K.
There are no words.
Paint. Topknot. Ruffles.
Woody and Diane. Nothing cuter.
Don’t let anybody with bad eyebrows tell you shit about life.
I used to do this with Fern and have a chin scar to prove it.
Vintage Benz and a denim dress. Perfection.image
Lastly, I just wanted to tell you that someday we will paint our house all white and it will look like this. And all of the fox and deer and bunnies from around the area will come by one evening with their plaid sleeping bags and be like “oh hey we love what you’ve done to the place let’s have a sleepover by the fire and roast marshmallows and have a back-rub circle.”
Bow wow wow yippy yo yippy yaaaaaaaay … it’s Fri Fri!
I woke up at the damn butt crack today because we are dog sitting for a hyperactive border collie that whimpers under the bed like a mad woman. It’s Jack’s bro’s dog (hi Shea!) meaning she’s Fern and Rosy’s cousin and I am her aunt and she’s Jack’s niece so basically what I’m trying to say is she is family and I love her, stinky anal glands and all. So Tullabee, this post is for you, gurl.
While we’re all stocked up on dog gear over here, I spotted some posh pet websites on my friend Quinn’s Pinterest board and now have the sudden urge to drop $50 on this elephant toy just for the photo op of Rosy with it in her mouth. And I sure wouldn’t mind housing treats in this cute jar vs. the big greasy ziplock we currently use.
Have a good weekend, yo! I’ll be over here at the three-ring circus.
1) coloured collar 2) creature comforts woof jar 3) stitch stick dog bowl 4) knitted elephant dog toy 5) soft rope pull 6) bolster dog bed
I’m back, bitches! My week off went way too fast but I am happy to say that I did every single thing on the little listy poo I made last week so I feel like I made the most of the time. I had thought a week off would leave me so recharged that I’d have no trouble bouncing out of bed this morning raring to go. Not. The. Case. It is near impossible to peel myself outta bed on these cool Fall mornings. I love to sleep. That is all.
1) minnetonka ultimate sheepskin slipper 2) PJs by tatiana’s threads 3) louise shrunken robe 4) woodland socks 5) floral milk bath salts 6) buffalo check blanket
Today is the first day of my vacay, huzzah!
There will be no more blogging for me this week as I plan to stay away from the computer as much as possible. I’m gonna try and do more “good for the soul” type stuff like play with the pups in the woods, try yoga for the very first time (YIKES), run on the country roads, shop for fall booties and sweaters, take baths, read, cook the plethora of recipes I have saved but never have time to make, organize the kitchen (which is relaxing for me), paint something purdy and … last but not least … watch my mutha-effing box set of Felicity like a normal 34 year old! Have a good week, shmoopies.
How was the long weekend? Mine was fab-o. My kid sista’ and I went up to visit my parents in Northern Wisconsin. We filled our days reading on the boat, floating in the lake and playing hearts. And eating good food. And drinking vodka. And hey, Fernie and I even went for a run.
Speaking of doing enjoyable things outdoors (aren’t I the best at segues? is that actually how you spell “segues”?), check out these amazing shots of cute kids hanging in an enchanted garden-type setting. I want to be four again so I can borrow this chick’s cable knit sweater and go play hide and seek at the teddy bears picnic.

Lily Ashwell, where the shit have you been all my life!?
Yesterday I was eating a turkey sammy and pinning when the fair aisle pullover below stopped me in my tracks. I quickly followed some links which took me to this wonderful land chock full of my favorite colors (BLUE!), patterns (windowpane plaid!) and silhouettes (dungareeeeees!). I want one of each please!
That is all. Gotta go pack our lunches. I love lunch.
