Instant film

I'm an instant gratification kind of girl... I love the outcome of good 'ol fool proof instant cameras. Here are some I took in Mexico this past winter.

Southern comfort

Mr. Z and are in the process of purchasing a place (eek!) and our-place-to-be has all south facing windows, on the top floor. Is there a better place to start a window farm? I think not... During our rainy outing on Saturday, we stumbled upon The Windowfarms Project store. I can't wait to pick off a fresh piece of lettuce and basil for summer sandwiches and salads!

Aside from being super useful and helping us city dwellers get a bit of nature inside our homes, the Windowfarms organization has positive impacts all around the world, starting right here in Brooklyn.

Retro love

Love these "retro" images posted on grain edit!






Obscure places and curiosities

If the rain ever stops around here, I fancy many mini adventures. Just discovered Atlas Obscura for curious places just within reach. Here are some I'm definitely going to check out.


So pretty yet so disturbing...




Water!

S O F A

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend the SOFA New York Expo for the first time, thanks to a ticket from Charlene (thanks girl!). I left the place completely inspired, with gears working extra hard in the 'ol brain. I also felt a little under productive... but am glad to have peeked at such talented artists' work! Here's a summary of my little day trip to the Upper East Side. I say day trip, because when you're coming from Brooklyn, it's sort of a hike. The day was sooo beautiful and sunny that the UES seemed like a perfect little suburb away from the grime, complete with a boutique plastic surgeon's office ;-)

I know what I'll be doing... sleeping in!

DIY Striped Tank

Alright, finally snapping out of this lackadaisical funk. Spring project time.. I'm sick of all my clothes, aren't you?  Why not paint them?

Here's how on my Burda Style page.

Space obsession

The apartment shopping process is getting me a bit obsessed with interiors. Especially retro Parisian interiors. Check out Designer Jean-Christophe Aumas' apartment. I wonder if I can incorporate bright yellow somehow? It makes me happy every time I look at it.

the Apartment Complex

NYC apartments are different animals indeed. Just in time for my (and Mr. Z's) search for a new home, this article came out about just how life got so crazy here in Sardine City, and sometimes you are where you live~

Before I die I want to...

This caught my eye this morning... Interactive installation art!

Stealing Kurt's Style

So yes, everyone in the East Coast is wondering when *SPRING* is going to be here. I'm still hibernating, but am finally getting inspired to be inspired. Doesn't that sound tiring? Lately, my daily uniform has resembled Kurt Cobain's... even the hair cut, no?
