atlas assortment no.09

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an atlas assortment hasn’t it! I love my teeny tiny rose gold Bing Bang NYC skull earrings so just ordered the ring set { #1 } and can’t wait for it to arrive { let’s not talk about how I recently formed an addiction to online shopping… } If you frequent my Tumblr you will also note that I am completely obsessed with palm trees lately, who wouldn’t love a palm tree pillow { #5 }. Have a great weekend y’all!

in a new york minute

I returned home (late) last night after another fun-filled/exhausting/food overdosed weekend in my favorite city and I learned a few things on this trip…

1. It’s always a good idea to have dinner two reservations during fashion week. After waiting 45 min at the Stanton Social (which I will obv still go to again and again, but am a tad disappointed in) we grabbed the jackets out of coat-check and hopped in a cab for rezo number two at La Esquina. Totally smooth, totally delicious, totally amazing to have a back up plan when it’s 11:30p and you are starving!

2. Sleep No More is an eerie, interactive, and fantastic theatrical experience. Like a haunted house for adults, with Champagne ;)

3. If there was a Babycakes that actually existed in Toronto I would eat cupcakes three times a day so perhaps it’s better if it stays a at a bit of a distance

4. 10 Downing is now a new brunch fav spot, and it’s also where I broke up with potatoes

5. There is a place to buy decently priced, and unique, frames at an eye-wear store called SEE. Now for the unfortunate part, they do not have any locations in Canada. So… I picked up a new pair of frames! However – too bad for me – they would have added the lenses in for free had I been staying in the city for a week and could have picked them up later. Regardless, they have wickedly helpful and pleasant staff – I went to two locations multiple times to pick out the right frame. And, each style/colour has only one piece in store so once it’s gone, and it’s yours, that’s it!

Now, it’s time to rest up and catch up a little bit this week!

a sunday well-spent brings a week of content

The weekend is wrapping up. There was some Champagne drinking, however, no dancing on tables. Der and I spent some time getting crafty. Which, in turn, has lead to ideas about setting up shop on Etsy (stay tuned!!). I am obsessed with Tumblr…
