A Wink and A Smile

Baseball season is back and as much as I can get frustrated at the crowds and traffic around a Red Sox game, there really is nothing like attending a game at Fenway Park.


My sweet boyfriend got us tickets for tonight since we’ve both had a tough couple of weeks at work and I’m so excited for a hot dog, beer, and baseball. Maybe spring really is coming…

Has anyone else seen The Grand Budapest Hotel? Not only did I love the story and the humor, but like most Wes Anderson movies (so I hear…I don’t think I’ve seen any others) it was beautiful! I left the theater (the Coolidge Corner Theater is so cool!) feeling inspired. The sets and costumes and props were stunning!

{1 / 2 / 3 / 4}

It all makes me want to combine red and purple, paint things with super high gloss paint, and decorate with gold and pale pink.

Any other movies you love visually? I’m a huge fan of Sophia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette as well.

Don’t these lovely ladies make you itch for a dressy masquerade party? Reminds me of my junior prom…

A few things I’m loving this week:

I did some Dine Out Boston eating over the past two weeks. My favorites were the brussel sprout caesar salad at Met Back Bay, the Elote Con Chili at Zocalo (never had it? find a Mexican or tapas place STAT), and the Papardalle with Lamb Ragu at Clink.

I’m re-reading Ella Enchanted for the zillionth time. That book is one of my very favorites and I’ve been falling in love with Ella and Char all over again.

Sur la Table sent me a mini catalogue; who knew there were so many fruit specific tools?!

I’m newly addicted to Veep.

Am I the only one who loved diagramming sentences?

JCrew does it again with this fun color film.

15 things you didn’t know about your iPhone.

And a few design tips from the masters.

Happy weekend-ing!!
