workout plan

if nothing else, i'm extremely paranoid about waking up late. especially when i have an event to attend early in the morning. yesterday i had a breakfast to go to at 8:30 am. at the museum of arts and design. at columbus circle. far, far away from my east village apartment. it's not so much the early hours that worry me, it's about pressing the snooze button and then forgetting to reset my alarm. i always think i can sleep just five extra minutes, and then i accidentally end up sleeping an extra forty. oops.

i am also very worried about being late. so i left my apartment at 7 am, just in case, and arrived uptown about thirty-ish minutes later. no traffic. it must have been my lucky day, because it was almost 60 degrees out and i had forty-ish minutes to leisurely sit in central park and have a coffee before the breakfast.

this got me thinking. i really should make an adjustment to my usual morning routine. sleeping until the last possible second and then rushing up to my office isn't exactly ideal. sitting in the park was so lovely. having the extra time to myself before i start my day at work just seems so much more natural. pleasant. the quality of life.

and in the same vein, if i am staying in on a weeknight, i made the resolution to turn off my laptop after 8 pm. i need to do more crafts.

a peek inside my work bag.

my keys, wallet, a just-in-case headband, chanel lรจvres-scintillantes glossimer (my favorite!), a disposable camera, two makeup cases and a magazine.

i switched bags last night. it is never actually this organized.

for the past few weeks, i have been taking pictures with disposable cameras. i just got them developed and i can not stop smiling. they are so much more fun/lovely/interesting than any picture i have ever taken with a digital camera. really!

friday night
a lovely day with my boyfriend
saturday brunch, saturday night and a sunday stroll

the last time i used a disposable was probably five years ago. or so. but i think it's pretty safe to say that i will always be carrying one from now on.

spring day

the emilys and i went to brunch today at spitzer's (of course) and then strolled and strolled and shopped around soho. today was the first day of spring for me (as i have missed all of the other spring days being in my office) and it felt wonderful.

the usual. crispy eggs + spinach ricotta terrine

our former front door on eldridge street
i must remind myself that i can not buy vintage clothing that looks like a costume. as pretty as it may look, i will never wear it.

things we do

whenever we pass them, my boyfriend and i buy the little critters from the 25-cent machines on the street. animals, jewelry, homies, etc. we put them up on the shelf in my building's staircase (at the second floor) to see how long it takes before someone notices/takes. usually they are gone within a few days. a miley cyrus heart charm stayed on the shelf for an exceptionally long time. three-ish weeks.

the first one we got was a little pig in brooklyn. the very first week that we met. smile.

but, really, who is taking them?

fries + mayo

it used to be some sort of egg dish, but my current brunch staples are a plate of french fries (with mayo) and an endless cup of coffee. a special treat if the restaurant has cheese fries. divine.

after venturing over to chelsea last night to an art gallery with ben and jacqueline (who is visiting from germany!), we saw that the sidewalk was cracked perfectly in the shape of a bird. peculiar.
