WEEKEND NOTES

This weekend was productive and relaxing at the very same time, and full of sunshine to boot… you can’t get much better then that!  A few tidbits gathered from the internet that I thought you might enjoy…

Garance Dore, one of my all time favorite authorities on style, turned 40 this past week.  Her “Letter to My 20 Year Old Self” was such a joy to read… full of self reflection, honesty and inspiration to all women as we navigate that tricky thing called age.

 

nepal

Nepal has been on the minds of so many this week, and it can be confusing to try and help those who are so far away.  I found this site to be very informative if you want to take action.

 

pot radish salad

Spring is really truly here, and with it comes the very best kind of cooking.  Everything is so fresh and vibrant, and it seems to taste brand new all over again.  Fingerling potatoes have been on heavy rotation in our house lately, and I’m loving this new combination with avocados and radishes by Cannelle et Vanille.

 

May_Lookbook_Desktop_slice1_03

Anthropologie just released their May lookbook, and it is of course, perfectly fabulous.  All those beautiful muted shades mixed with white are making me want to throw out everything in my closet that even resembles winter.  They really manage to know exactly what it is that women want to be wearing, at exactly the right time.

 

flight car

With lots of summer travel coming up on us fast, we’ve been trying to research the smartest ways to and from the airport, always a hassle no matter how hard we try to plan ahead.  We came across a new service called Flightcar, which is playing upon the Airbnb and Uber model of using the resources that are already available to most of us.  Basically, you get to leave your own car at their lot for free, and while you are gone, it might be rented out to someone to drive while they are in your home town, which you get paid for.  You always get free parking and a car wash, even if it’s never used.  How cool and efficient is that?!

Always obsessed with everything that Anna Sheffield makes, but these gold hoop earrings with white topaz stones are making me particularly happy.

 

alex of venice

Venice is one of my favorite parts of LA to visit with it’s laid back charm and easy beach feel. Every time I’m there, I love to play that game of imagining my life in the bohemian mecca of Southern California.  This film will definitely be one I’m going to curl up with on a rainy Seattle afternoon.  “Alex of Venice” looks honest, well written, and beautifully filmed… there aren’t enough movies out there that speak to women on this level, and I can’t wait to see it.
