Happiness Hit Her Like a Train on a Track


Run Away, Hit the Road, Don't Commit

I'm loving these days of sunshine. Not sure how anyone can be grumpy with this beautiful weather. I've been rocking rompers as much as possible.

Improv Everywhere

Spent the morning thrifting and stocking up on the essentials for finals, energy drinks and LĂ„RABARs. Will post some of my amazing vintage finds as soon as I'm done sewing on all these silly buttons. In the meantime, check out some of Improv Everywhere's videos, I'm obsessed with the spontaneous musicals. IMPROV EVERYWHERE

Today You are You...

...that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You -Dr Seuss

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasty is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities." -Dr Seuss

Through the Looking Glass

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" - Alice in Wonderland

there are 24 usable hours in the day

Ever feel like you have a never ending to do list? 24 hours just aren't enough in a day. Life is a balancing act that I have almost mastered perfectly with the help of red bull, coffee, and tea. I have a couple of DIY projects that just keep being pushed to the bottom of my list...such as beading lace tights and shredding vintage tees. I promise I'll get to these eventually and post the results. This weekend was completely exhausting between designing, work, and recouping from a nasty fall down the stairs.
Ziggy and I could just not stay awake today
I spoke to a woman the other day who went to art school and loved painting and said she just doesn't have time for it anymore. After hearing this I decided I'm going to make more time for the things I push to the bottom of my list. As much as I love grad school (best decision of my life) and the work I have to do daily for it, sometimes it's just nice to do something I don't have to do. Never give up something you love because of time...set aside a few hours once a week and ALWAYS make time for the people in your life.

Eat Up

Judith Goldstein and Kassandra Grunewald, two lovely ladies who moved to Israel a few years ago created an awesome website, Taste TLV, that you must check out. " We want to tell you the story of Tel Aviv through food, through the people that cook the food, and through the restaurants that have grown with the country, states the Judith and Kassandra. Taste TLV is packed with everything you need to know before going out to dine in Tel Aviv...videos, reviews, restaurant hours, price range. It even has a guide with basic hebrew restaurant vocabulary and dining tips. Know someone going to Israel, send them Taste TLV, it's a must site to check out before going!

Shine On

Let's find some place beautiful to get lost.
Is it summer time yet? I'd even settle for one or two warm spring beach days. I'm ready to trade my scarf and sweater for a bikini and sandals. I'm lusting after these fabulous bikinis.
