case of the mondays

It's funny how everything can get so stirred up around you sometimes. Life can be so dull at moments and then at the drop of a hat stuff is flying at you from every direction. I feel a bit bombarded lately with a lot of things. Some good, some bad, some exciting, some challenging.

So, something's got to give. And unfortunately I think it's this little baby. I'm not taking a real break from here but will probably be posting a bit inconsistently - basically when time allows - for the next few weeks. Hope you'll stick around.

Have a great week all! And, hope all is well with all of you :)



she hits pause

Beautiful large format Polaroid transfers by Matt Schwartz of She Hit Pause Studios, Inc.

Matt started She Hit Pause almost a decade ago, featuring photographs of his what he calls his version of the pin-up girl. His work is meant to be paired together to create a story and has been described as "walking into a dream."

color theory

Sweet necklaces by Chicago-based Cursive Design.

The most recent collection is inspired by the intersection of country and city which parallels the creator Sarah's roots and current life. "It's about the mix of neon and neutrals, hard lines and organic shapes."


center city

Rittenhouse clothing is a high end, yet laid back, label by Australian designer couple Sally McDonald and Micah Hamdorf. The line is based out of Sydney, but is named after Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square - an homage to the city where the pair reunited after spending some time apart on different sides of the world.

For their latest collection, the prints showcase playful polka dots using the batik technique, in a range of colors, textures and sizes.

Happy Friday!

Friday! Finally.

I'm so excited for this weekend. This is the first weekend being in my new place where things should feel a bit more normal. The first month in was all houseguests. Last weekend I had the place to myself. And though I enjoyed it all, I'm really ready to get back to the same old routine.

Tonight, two of my girl friends are coming over for dinner, drinks and catching up. I can't wait to see them - it's been too long. And tomorrow, my roommate Beth and I are going out on the town to blow off some steam. It's been awhile since we have been out together, so it's definitely time to get back out there. We always get ourselves into trouble, but it's always fun. Never a dull moment.

Anyone else up to no good this weekend? ;)
