& a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 17.01.22
Studio McGee

THIS WEEKEND, finally ordered a new Mac Mini to replace my iMac, which has been running on the slow side for a little while now. Also ordered a fancy new white (non-Mac) monitor as well as a Lacie external drive and have been spending the first two weeks of this new year sorting through hundreds of files and folders and photos and taking stock of things, both literally and figuratively. I am still formulating my goals and resolutions for twenty-twenty-two and still deciding if I will share them as I have in past years. P has told me that this year, he is cutting out all internet news sites and feeds and anything online that causes negativity and outrage, and it’s not a bad idea. He’s already been using the extra time to read non-fiction and I’ve been considering carrying my Kindle around in my handbag (despite the extra weight) just to avoid doom-scrolling while waiting in queues. It’s been said that these past few years of pandemic have made people rethink everything in their lives, what they really want, how they want to live, where they want to live, what’s really important to them and we’ve been talking about all of these things quite a lot. This year is going to be one of change⏤new priorities, a change of scenery. We’re ready.

This week’s links include a penthouse inside a former warehouse in Athens and pretty powder blue cardigans for winter days; a new hotel in Finland, the top décor trends for 2022, and much, much more.
