i love you, i love you

if i had a few hundred dollars kicking around, i would buy up every copy of i love you (at the friendly favorite magazine cafe on west 37th street) and give them to my loveliest friends.

tonight, i've been: unpacking from a weekend in connecticut, hanging a divinely dreadful fabric to the wall behind my dresser (thanks nana!), lighting candles, going over which ballets i want to see for city ballet's winter season, occasionally munching on seaweed, listening to tchaikovsky's sleeping beauty from a crackly old record (again, thanks nana!) and have been just mesmerized by i love you and the general scene of the evening.

a perfect welcome-back to new york.

something is awfully sweet about this signature in cement.


after a divine vegan dinner at counter in the east village, katy and i had an epic kmart adventure. a quick look for ugly sweaters turned into an hour and a half of debating purchases of cotton candy machines, easy-bake-ovens, play dough, friendship necklaces and sequined purses.

i left with blue christmas lights, glow in the dark ceiling stars and a twizzler-scented candle. success!

feels it

it's almost 1:30 and i am still in bed. the sun has been shining through my windows, i'm reading elizabeth taylor's my love affair with jewelry and it feels like a sunday.

sometimes i forget to explore the different neighborhoods of new york and i woke up this morning realizing that i hadn't been to chinatown lately, a quick five blocks away. i was also in desperate need of a little present for myself. i tried to find a statue or some stickers or a key chain, but all i came across was fairly expensive jewelry and knock-off perfumes. so i picked up some seriously charming faux roses for $1.08, a perfect addition to my bedpost!

  • the exact moment when miranda (at bridges) puts together the pieces of who this "mrs. doubtfire" really is.
  • after having a massive crush on a boy (and approaching the fizzling stages of their romance), my friend opened up our school newspaper (the cynic) only to find that he wrote an article about the signs of a guy "not being into you." hilarious now, heartbreaking then.
  • every creak i hear from the apartment above, i always expect a clawfoot bathtub to instantaneously fall into my bedroom. with someone in it looking confused, lots of dust, etc.
  • evolving friendships.
  • sometimes when i walk into my apartment, i smell how it did when i first moved in. infrequently and brief.
  • i giggle and chat with my friends during ballet class in the same way that i did when i was eight.
  • it makes me happy just to have ballet friends still...
  • and the end-of-class bows are my favorite part, as they always have been. fancy!
  • i went to glamour's women of the year awards on monday night at carnegie hall and i still can't wrap my head around all of the amazingly courageous and kind-hearted activists, athletes and celebrities that i was in the same room with. (celebz included julia roberts, cher, oprah, donatella versace, kelly osbourne, fergie, kate hudson, hilary swank, mia hamm... TAVI!)

emily is twenty five

emily turned twenty five on saturday! we've lived together since we celebrated her twenty first and it's wild to think how quickly time flies. hayley came to stay with us for the weekend and we went to see blues traveler on friday night (part of emily's birthday present to me!) and we all danced and danced. kara and emily came on saturday and we (and justin!) spent the day at an outdoor market in brooklyn and then had a delicious brunch at the general greene (their french fries are divine). we celebrated at night with friends at elsa in the east village and i think it's safe to say that it's a new favorite. friendly and charming, they treated the birthday girl like a queen. we had the entire back area all to ourselves and it was the perfect evening. happy birthday, em!

twenty five!

station wagon

i always loved being driven around by my friends' parents who had those station wagons with the backwards-facing seats in the third row. is there anything better (to an 8 year old in a car) than making faces (etc.) at the other drivers? though i suppose it seems very obvious why they don't make those anymore.

i am completely in love with my new bow ring.
aren't you?

my darling silver bow is the perfect statement piece.
every time i look down at my hand, i admire.
it's either outrageous or understated. i haven't decided yet.
and i haven't taken the pretty little thing off since i got it. love!


that's right

i knew it all along
