Overwhelmed With Props

Half of my job is producing shoots for bon appetit which is (at times) extremely demanding but almost always fun. Part of the lovely madness is being surrounded by some many amazing props. I'm talking things I wouldn't normally be able to touch outside a store. They keep me constantly inspired. Above, I loved the texture and color palette of both linens mixed with the modern silverware.

Joes Stone Crab Delivers

Any Floridians out there who are missing home? I have the cure! Recently, my mom had Joe's Stone Crabs (of the famous South Beach establishment) mailed to my house! Sounds weird to ship seafood, I know! But these were at my door the same day, in a cooler and ready to eat. It's kind of amazing. Bonus was the amazing key lime pie that was part of the order! I highly suggest you try it out if you're into seafood!

You're So Cold

 I know I am not alone. This, I am sure of. Wherever you are, you're cold. No matter what you're wearing, you're freezing. No matter the temperature, you feel as if you live in the underbelly of the Artic. I'm talking about those of us who are constantly cold. A sad way to live your life, really.

The other day I was in my office and all of a sudden, half the computers and lights in my area shut off. Someone had blown a fuse but who could it have been? An office mate set out to investigate. Oh yeah, it was me. Just me and space heater, trying to make things warm. The struggle is real, my friends and I want to let you know, you're not alone.

Here's to 90 degree weather and blazing sun; the only time our bodies feel warm. Because I know that if Nicholas has to hear the words "I'm cold," one more time, he might strangle me.

DO THIS: Eucalyptus

Winter is a weird time for plants. Everything's dying, flowers are rare and there's an overall brownness to everything. To overcome this lack of color, I bring eucalyptus home. No matter how harsh the winter, I always seem to find eucalyptus at my local bodega or even the farmers market. That bunch up there cost me $10 and it was more than enough to put a few sprigs in different parts of my house. Not only is it beautiful, it smells delicious. Are you sold?

Outdoor Voices

It's kind of weird to wear "nice" gym clothes but Outdoor Voices array of sportswear can double up as normal day wear. I was first introduced to Outdoor Voices when I learned a girl I work with runs their very cool Instagram.

I'm hoping Santa brings a pear of their gray + white leggings, pictured above!
