My next purchase...

I don't really know why I don't have one yet, it seems a classic thing to own with quite the little history for a notebook!

Also here is a good night song for you...

Sweet Charity

watch the whole thing.  i promise you won't be sorry.  my favorite is the "Heavyweight"
(clip from the 1969 movie Sweet Charity)

don't worry i am already trying to master the dance moves and am in the process of growing my hair, so i can have a super long ponytail to achieve the full effect.

Things that got my love on Valentine's

Since I didn't have a nice boy to love on Valentine's Day I had to find other things to love and was most successful...

I loved Buddha Bar.  The food and company were excellent, the bill, well not so much

I loved my new spring dress, although the weather still calls for a cardigan, and jacket even

I loved spending the majority of the weekend in Brooklyn

I loved having a tea party at Alice's Tea Cup

I loved eating chocolate cake and pumpkin scones

I loved my herbal chai, I may or may not have had 6 cups

I loved listening to this song

I went to heaven...vintage heaven that is

Went to the Manhattan vintage clothing show and sale this weekend.  
I have no words for how incredible  it was and how fascinatingly  stylish the people who attended it were.  
As soon as I walked into the pavilion, I was overwhelmed and speechless... 

(My favorite ladies!  I wish I got an action shot of them and could have captured their allure and style more fully.  I have never seen so many elegant, chic and stylish women and men in my life)

They have these things 3 times a year here and I plan on attending one every year no matter where I am living!

dreaming of summer...

Ch-ch-ch- check it out.   I have been listening to these songs a lot lately.  They are my energy songs at the moment and they make me think of summer.  Too bad the groundhog said there are 6 more weeks left of winter!  Not that I trust a groundhog and actually I wouldn't be surprised if it is more than six weeks, but I can dream can't I??? 

***Also side note, today I got RATATAT tickets and last week I got ANIMAL COLLECTIVE tickets. I am stoked!

Lucky me, got to see Lykke Li!

Last night I saw LYKKE LI at the amazing venue, Webster Hall (I will most likely do a post on it later).  The show KNOCKED my socks off!!! Her energy was absolutely AWESOME.  She was so cute.  Her style, her voice, her dancing everything about this little Swedish lady exuded cool.   

My favorite parts of the show were her dancing, her rapping (yes she rapped!, how rad is that?), when she sang into a megaphone and just her rapport with the crowd.   I had a blast!

If you want to hear her rapping check out her cover of A Tribe Called Quest's, Can I Kick It?
Another cool cover she did was Kings of Leon's,  Knocked Up 

I took this video last night so you can have a little taste...sorry the quality is so bad.  I need a new camera!

If you want a better quality video of what she sounds like live check out this live session and even download it!
