Sunroom- a room with large windows and sometimes a glass roof, designed to let in a lot of sunlight...perfect.

Weekend Plans

Might I suggest a movie? Moonrise Kingdom, it's adorable. It wasn't until the summer that I had seen any Wes Anderson movie other than The Fantastic Mr. Fox but I've corrected that. With the help of Netflix, I've seen every one of his films and I must say, I'm a huge fan!

Well Read

Today was one of those (rare) days spent almost entirely in bed reading and it was just as wonderful as it sounds. I highly recommend it!

Art Appreciation

Carly in Flymask by Clare Rickman as seen at the California Sate Fair yesterday. Love...I seem inexplicably drawn to art work with a subject whose face is obscured from view.

Travel Plans

In three short weeks, one of my dreams will come true. I am heading to New York! I'll be going with two instructors and a classmate from the fashion program that I attend. One of the instructors has been many times and has a fantastically educational experience planned for us which will even include a visit to the Met where we will see Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. I can hardly believe it!
From Me To You

Friends, we took a vacation last week (more on that later) which wound up a leisurely month of June. Ever since the school semester finished, I have been sluggish, in what I think of as a "research mode" which means much time spent watching movies, reading and searching the internet. All of which is necessary but today I feel ready to spring into action and into more of a "productive mode"!
