Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

The ones with a Cuban heel, rounded to pointed toe, high shaft and no lacing. If you're interested in »

Five Beauty Counters in New York City

The holidays are here! In New York, giant snowflakes adorn Fifth Avenue, the leaves are at their golden and crimson height, windows are being dressed, and soon snow will transform Central Park into a winter wonderland.

There are more visitors than usual in Manhattan during this time of year. Inevitably, I will be asked for directions to Sephora or Glossier.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

NOVEMBER IS ALWAYS a bittersweet time, for it was on a chilly morning in early November in a city far away that we lost our sweet Dalmatian. She was a rescue whom we adopted when she was just three months old and was a grand old fifteen when she died. It’s a very long time for a Dalmatian to live, we were told, but forever would not have been long enough. That was two cities and six years ago this month. We say bittersweet, because she lived a long, happy life and we had the privilege of knowing her for most of it. And it’s also bittersweet because the year is coming to an end, but there are still so many things to look forward to and so many beautiful reasons to be happy. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a perfect start.
