Brief Pause

I was working until 10:30 last night so this morning I’m feeling a little drained and my brain feels like this:

Because I have many, many, many more things to get done today and I would really love to be done earlier than 10:30pm tonight. I’m leaving with some new to me blogs that you can check out.

1. Remember how I mentioned the Evening Hours section of Sunday Style this week. It’s the section in which photographer Bill Cunningham captures all the different high-society events going on around town. Well this blogger is actually featured in them!


Melissa spents her time between NY, CT and the seat of airplane. Constantly going on fab trips she takes her readers along for the ride. You’ll also see appearances of her hubby Chappy (who apparently was the inspiration for Jack Nicholson’s character in,“Something's Gotta Give” and Monty her pup.

2. You know how everyone says they want to drop everything and travel the world. Ok so maybe it’s not everyone, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and these almost newly weds are doing just that!


Follow Alex and Mina as the take the final steps in planning their trip around the world. They are taking some final trips in their home town before they live along with asking readers advice on what they should keep or toss!

3. Is a blog that I actually just found yesterday even though blogger Molly has been writing it since 2004!


Molly found herself at a crossroads in 2004 when she dropped out of her Ph.D. program, because she knew her heart wasn’t in it. What she dreamed of doing was becoming a food writer. So a friend suggested a blog. A blog turned into a book deal, a monthly column in Bon Appetit magazine and a reader that became her husband! Plus they are just about to open a restaurant.

So I’m pretty much now hoping that Jon is part of some high-society NY family and just hasn’t told me yet. Which would mean we could drop everything and travel the world and then come home and open our own little restaurant.

Just kidding! I’m just hoping I get through today and actually get to leave my desk from time to time.

Any new blogs you are addicted to that I need to know about?

Aw, hope things slow down enough for you to take a deep breath and relax, even just a bit! Thanks for the new links...the first two are new to me as well. Orangette was actually one of the first, if not the first, blog I ever came across. A real Cinderella story!

Haha, that's how my second DIY credenza is looking right now! It's FULL of tools and crap. Btw, I got the Mucha books today, and they're just amazing! (just did a post with lots of PICS!) Need your opinion, so pop on over! :)
Hope you got to finish your TO-DO list! Have a fantastic day! :D :D
