Sunday Objects | 9

I know, I know – today's Sunday Objects is a little late.

I finished up my first Alt Summit last night and gave myself some good time away from the computer after three days of (amazing, inspiring) online classes. So, we spent the morning doing our usual: Walking through the park with coffee and croissants, taking about a million photos each of dogs, old buildings, and cool lighting. It was perfect, and now I'm ok with getting back online.

So guys, without further ado, here are a few of the everyday objects inspiring me this week:

  • bird etching: There is an old man in Islington who has a tiny store filled with animal prints and etchings. We picked up this one of an African Reef Eater a couple years ago, and it's been waiting for its final resting home ever since. I treasure it.
  • petra borner notecards: Bought these incredible notecards by illustrator Petra Borner from the incredible Search & Rescue, so now I'm looking for excuses to write notes
  • moss green sunglasses: I've had these everday sunglasses for years but they never disappoint. We've had a few days of warmer weather in London, so I'm using these puppies as much as I can before they're packed away for the season.
  • hot pink ringBy Kate Spade Saturday. Got these multi-color pack of these rings last year and I wear them all the time, sometimes pairing a colored ring with my wedding band because, you know, why not.
  • grey notebook: If you hadn't noticed, I really love stationery. Was so happy to receive my brand new notebook from Chroma Stationery earlier this week. And – extra bonus – it's already filled with extra good notes from Alt. Success!

Hope you're having a great Sunday!

Packing List: Nice

In a couple of weeks, I'll be heading on a trip with two of my friends from Brooklyn.  We're all meeting in Paris and will then be jaunting off to Nice for a few days. Not so bad, right?


Save from visiting family in the U.S. and South Africa, this will be my first vacation since moving to London last summer. Obviously, I'm excited.


Here's my packing list for Nice, with special thanks to the Kate Spade Saturday sale:  

Good Reads

HF, y'all. Two amazing things are happening today: 

1. Jesse and the Rippers are reuniting and playing tonight on the Jimmy Fallon Show. God bless John Stamos.

2. I'm going to see The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable, suckas! This is an interactive theatrical experience put on by Punchdrunk, the theatre troupe behind New York's Sleep No More. I'll be running around a 4-story building that's been constructed to resemble a 1950's Hollywood sound stage. Also it's right next to the Kate Middleton baby hospital, so fingers crossed something happens!


Other stuff to check out: 


These gorgeous photos and words about Sri Lanka by Matthew Herrmann.  

Jay-Z, I mean Jay Z's, 99 problems, illustrated.  

I finally saw Side Effects with Jude Law and Rooney Mara on the plane back from Florida. It's worth seeing / also Rooney Mara looks EXACTLY like Alexa Chung in this movie. Someone agree with me!

Gah, this Crisscross Corded Perf Dress in Navy from Kate Spade Saturday really is  perf. It'd be even better with these flat sandals

I just love me some Seth Meyers (found via Cup of Jo).
