For my Presentation class, we are currently learning how to "properly" watercolor room elevations. With that said, I am a terrible watercolorer. I tend to lose control of the water, and then in turn, lose my patience. My professor told me to "light candles and put on some nice music." At first I laughed at this, but I'm beginning to think it's the only way...
I'm not sure if Jeremiah Goodman uses this tip from my professor, but his book, published originally in 2007,
"Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision," certainly grasps at the idea. A romantic vision it is. Jeremiah's interiors are stunning, multi-layered, sumptuous, almost dream-like versions of the truth. A girl can only hope.

"You can do anything in Bushwick."

I cannot help but be proud of my ever-growing neighborhood.
Check out this article about Bushwick's Roberta's.
PS- I fucking love Alice Waters. My absolute favorite book growing up was "Fanny at Chez Panisse."

The Affordable Art Fair.

The Affordable Art Fair starts this coming Wednesday, and will boast art from the well-known, to the up-and-coming. Pieces will range from $100-$10,000. Quite a cool idea.


This groovy "high tech foodcourt" opened only 9 blocks from my office. It reminds me of ordering a sandwich at Wawa (anyone? anyone?). I'll give this a shot for's well priced and seems tasty as hell. (Photos courtesy of Notcot)


Check out this gallery of some beautiful (and delicious) NYC Restaurants by Ryan Charles.


Frida is the best movie I've seen in a long time. It is Heart-breaking, vibrant, and real.
Also pick up her diary if you are so inspired as I.
Beautiful, talented, tragic, Frida Kahlo.

Thank you Kefira.

Frocks by Boxing Kitten. Yes Yes Yes.
The cuts, the fabric, the styling is just perfect.
Now where are we flying to?

These have been popping up all over Brooklyn. Anyone know who?

Brooklyn Flea.

The Brooklyn Flea is AMAZING. Beautiful vintage clothes, jewels, and bags. Vintage prints of botany, anatomy, astronomy. Old cameras, globes, furniture. And the food? Arguably the reason we went: Brisket sandwiches, horechas, tacos, Mexican corn, egg creams, oh my. The Bk Flea is located in one of my favorite Brooklyn neighborhoods, Fort Greene, so make a day of it, and if you make a night of it, go to Abistro, a quaint, delicious, Moroccan French place (BYOB!!!).

I love how Angelina applies her paint, giving into a loss of control. Her images are soft yet mysterious.

Let there be glitter.

For my new class, Presentation Techniques, we had to draw spoons (my professor is super deluxe kooky FYI). I chose a tablespoon and a wooden spoon (burns and all). This was the first time I did a pencil sketch in years. Quite therapeutic really.
