Léa Seydoux is just so great!
From Tumblr blog aptly named Awesome People Reading.
Artist Windy MacNaughton creates the most interesting illustrations, and this travel one — per Nellie Bly — is especially good. Gotta love a woman who travels with a flask, (3) veils and an ink stand.
Bruno Mars put on such a great show tonight at the Entertainment Industry’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. And afterward they handed out Sprinkles red velvet cupcakes at the door. Bliss.
Love this! I can’t wait to see Episode 2.
There’s a lovely feature on the home of Sydney woman Wendy Paterson in this month’s Vogue Living Australia, showcasing her taste for simplicity… Paterson spends her weekends “fossicking” for treasures at flea markets and antique stores. She tells Vogue Living: “I always want my home to be better on Monday than it is on Friday […]
This is how our house looks at the moment…. (The woman with moon print is by Rose Walton. I bought it from her a million years ago when she was selling her art on Ebay. I lost track of her for awhile but recently found her on Etsy.) (Previous places where we’ve lived. Also with […]
I love the stylish use of space in this one room Paris apartment… I stack my books too — not always a good idea when you need a book at the bottom of the pile. In this space, they seem like sculptural art.
“Don’t look back, you’re not going there anyway.” “Forgiveness starts with realizing the other person is barking mad.” “Eat. Read. Sleep.” I have a file full of Tumblr quotes…Words to live by, my friends…. Fall down eight times, stand up nine…Chin up kid.
Lately I’ve been bookmarking Pinterest files in my toolbar. Here are some of the photos from one that I’m obsessed with: Sara Jane’s “Down the Lane.” The file belongs to “stylist, creative consultant, visual storyteller” Sarah Prall. She bookmarks interiors…and the requisite deer photos… Peeling fences and tattered quilts…. Old-fashioned dilapidates… Still Lifes… Colorful knits […]
Bombino is great at parties, magic on rainy mornings, stronger than Aderrall and, not least, a romance reviver
Christmas comes early this year. And if you are good girls and boys, you will now open a great present by clicking this link to buy the CD from Amazon, or this link for the MP3 download. What are you getting? “Nomad,” 40 minutes of music by an African guitarist who’s called Bombino. It’s protein-rich: […]
Jesse Kornbluth, of HeadButler.com, serving you excellent tea. Alice Waters drinks Pu-erh tea. And swears by it. “My cholesterol went down 100 points since I started drinking this,” she says. ”It was extreme. That’s not a small endorsement. I ordered some. And opened it while we were having dinner with a friend from Texas. It […]
‘She stood for a moment, hugging herself. The glory of her. England stood before him, naked in the darkness.’
Jesse Kornbluth, of HeadButler.com, here to praise one of his favorite writers. “A major literary event.” That’s the phrase for any novel by James Salter, and especially “All That Is.” First, because Salter is known in the trade as a “writer’s writer” — underappreciated by the public but revered by those in the know. Then, […]
Hello, English Musers! It’s Hannah B. again from Secrets of a Belle. This past weekend, while the rain pitter-pattered on the window, I spent some time curled up on the couch lost in a new favorite book. This got me to thinking. Where do you other people read? Do you curl up on the couch […]
