Friday finds, Volume VII (Feb/17/2017)

    Happy Friday! NYFW is over. Time for Europe: London, Milano, and Paris! Even if you did not spend your week running from show to show and through JFK to catch your flight to Heathrow, you are ready for the weekend! Unwind, treat yourself, and enjoy your repose. Spring is in the air!

Mental health. // It is real. It is not just you. It is these leading ladies, too. It will be OK.

Overwhelmed by all this going green and clean beauty? // Understand where to start.

Go BTS on this year’s most buzzed-about film. // I have seen it three times at the movies. It is that phenomenal!

Paris. It is different every time you visit. // Escape to it, now.

“Paris is an ocean. Explore it, and you still won’t know its depths.”
— Honoré de Balzac.

A once in a lifetime experience. // Workout. In a museum. Twenty squats in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Peter Jay Sharp Foundation Gallery.

What is for dinner? // Fish!

The Met is one of the most important open museum collections in the world. // More so everyday.

“ Sharing is fundamental to how we promote discovery, innovation, and collaboration in the digital age,”
— Ryan Merkley, Creative Commons CEO.

How to talk to YOU[r daughter] about your [her] body. // Your body is so strong and powerful. Love it; you should not feel anything but appreciative of it.

Everything is cyclical. // Especially fashion. The rivalry between ready-to-wear and couture, similar to that seen in The Costume Institue's spring 2016 exhibition, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

Hydrate. With Pedialyte. // Or, like Hemingway.

Only two out of every 1,000 passengers traveling in the United States have lost their luggage in the past year. Record low. // Since it is unlikely you will have a Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents experience, it may be worth investing in a nice piece of luggage. Jack Burns will keep an eye on it.

Wishing you a magnifique weekend! Spring will really be in the air!

 

XOXO,
