I Digress

I have NO business posting when I'm in the midst of studying for a giant exam I'm taking in 3 days..but you know how it is, you look at something so much it morphs into a massive burden that just sucks all the life out of you. yes, that's it. Thus, I'm taking a mental health break and consoling myself with these calming images of the MMMG stores & cafes in Korea.

I had a rough weekend as I try and finish up some projects/study. Friday night I saw Ariel Pink & Os Mutantes though, which was a great time. Now back to work :/

My birthday weekend was great. Had a party at our apartment which had a good turnout as well as dancing. My dude took me to dinner at Nightwood, where I had a whole trout (my crap camera makes it look less appetizing than it was...delicious I swear) and fancy drinks, brunch with a girlfriend was brioche french toast! As for presents, I acquired the Nine West "Kender" boots...soooo comfy, and the Brothers Bray Rucksack in Olive Green. It is very roomy inside and has a waterproof lining, and reinforced leather straps. I love it.

Lived-in comfort

As much as I love everything-in-its-place mid century modern, I have been more drawn to lived in spaces that have warmth and a care-free sense to them. Case in point, illustrator Frank Höhne's place as featured on Freunde von Freunden.

Some inspiration for my (birthday!) weekend

Dudua, Frankie, the amazing Russian Red whom I have a girl-crush on, zines in Chicago

I usually listen to the Boswell Sisters around this time of year (autumn/winter), and it makes me wish I had sisters since I'd most likely force them to make a Boswell cover group with me.

olga bennett

My mind is a bit like these Olga Bennett photos lately. Hazy & sometimes cluttered.

Weekend Snapshot

first Matzo Ball soup & Kugel at Manny's Cafe (the whole meal made me really need a Tums), Ida the cat, my street-with the large monument at the end of it
