February Favorites!!

Holy! How is February over?! It feels like it just started.

February was a month full of brainstorming, idea building and seeking inspiration from all sorts of places. Maybe in the future I’ll post about inspo and where I get it (we all draw from different places, don’t we?!).

These are the current things I’m loving, buying, wanting and watching.

1. I saw Cutie And The Boxer. Have you seen it? (It’s available on Netflix.) LOVED IT!! I love honest portrayals of married life.

2. Josh and I didn’t get each other Valentine’s Day presents (unless you count Doughnut Ice Cream), but we did go shopping that day to buy a few things for our place. This Sydney Hale Co. candle in Bluegrass and Juniper came home with us. I burn it nightly and it smells so delicious. I’m gonna be bummed when it’s all gone.

3. I’m so in love with these Edible Masterpieces. Food stylist, Kim Morphew, duplicated famous works of arts and made them edible. I’d eat the shit out of that Jackson Pollock rice krispie treat.

4. Photographer Marcel Christ has made an entire career out of making perfect splash shots. With this more personal project, he combines paint and water, makes them explode and then takes photos of their reactions. The results are visually sublime; the color combinations make me ooo and ahhh and the shapes almost look like random inanimate objects. I feel like I see an apple.

5. Michel Gondry’s new music video for Metronomy is fu-uuun.

6. Beck came out with a new album! Listen. Listen.

7. I luh dis song.

8. And for a good lolz, check out this video from BuzzFeed: Regular People Try Pinterest Projects. HA! Not ashamed to admit that the crayon project kinda looks like fun!

9. I’m so in love with Brook and Lyn. And have been for a LONG TIME. I’m determined to have one of their woven pieces in my house one day.

10. This Friday, as in tomorrow, Block Shop is releasing their new Spring collection!! I can’t freaking wait. Their scarves are so incredibly beautiful. Here’s a sneak peek.

Share what you’re loving, reading, enchanted by. I’m curious.

(And in case you missed it, here’s a link to my January Favorites.)

That pictures of a blooming cherry tree makes me want to move to Los Angeles right about now!
Favorite February thing is that spring is starting early this year, here in Copenhagen DK. So wonderful. Another good thing is the buns we eat at Lent. Different kinds, all lovely.

Gosh, I just got back from a quick 1 day trip to LA and I miss the warm weather already. February is a gross month here in NY, so it’s hard to find inspiration. Your farmers market instagram pics are inspiring me though!

Cutie and the Boxer is now in the queue. Loved that trailer. The fact that it transitioned into a Jake Gyllenhaal movie didn’t hurt either. Added bonus.

Those scarves tho. Love them too.

How is it march? Mind blown.

Oooh! That candle sounds dreamy. I’m still burning one of the mrs meyer’s Iowa pine ones that they only make around xmas, but it’s almost gone… so it’s about time for me to re-stock my foresty candle collection.

I looove foresty candles. It’s the compromise I make with my dude. I usually go for things that smell French and flowery;)

That edible masterpieces thing is amazing!!! I want a giant rice krispie on my living room wall. Or you know, any edible food sculpture.

Love these posts Adrianna!

Current new snack obsession : snappers pretzels. You really just can’t have one. I’ve tried many times. If you can get your hands on a bag, share the goodness with someone you really love!

We live in Brooklyn and have trees outside our front windows that always are the earliest to bloom in beautiful soft whites and pinks of spring. And They Have Tiny Buds Starting. Salvation is coming.
