Weekend Whimsy: Sundays

Some late whimsy but whimsy neverthless. A few reads and recipes from around the web to make your Sunday morning a little more delicious. I’ll be cozied up drinking tea and reading articles with Michael.


I want nothing more to walk into my kitchen this morning and find that some wonderful Sunday Morning Fairy has whipped up these homemade English Crumpets. If that doesn’t end up being the case, I’ll probably just bake them next Saturday afternoon.

Embrace your inner Stone Fox Hippie this morning and read Molly Guy’s interview on The Coveteur. It’s an oldie but a goodie. And now I have a new dream for the end of my wedding day – cake in bed followed by ribs at Five Leaves.

And whilst we’re embracing hippies, this NYMag article on the cult versus the culture of Yoga is quite lovely (and very correct).

I’m seriously considering following The Man Repeller’s advice and going on an iPhone cleanse – it sounds sort of magical. I’m one of those people who secretly loves when they lose their phone or it breaks because it means I’m unreachable and it’s not my fault. Is that super weird? Maybe.

And finally, some inspiration for next week — everything sounds better when Ira Glass says it.


Weekend Whimsy: Lazy Lady

I’m hoping for a very relaxing weekend: sleeping in, watching movies, walking around aimlessly, reading and drinking tea. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to relax and make time for myself. I always work better when I’ve had a little space form the busy, dizzy world out there. Wishing all of you a lazy weekend with long baths and baking.

I quite fancy making Smitten Kitchen‘s coconut bread tomorrow morning.

I found this blog from my college. It’s filled with images of iconic Sarah Lawrence women and lots of photos taken from the school’s archive. It makes me all whimsical for my college days and for the days before I arrived when it was a charming (and pretty wild for a period of time there) playground for women looking to learn.

I recently discovered the website The Great Discontent. It is a journal of interviews with artists and creators. I think it’s going to be my new favorite place for finding new talent and inspiration. The interviews are very compelling and interesting. (Also, I just love the name).

Michael and I saw the Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts at IFC this week. It’s such a fun date and the films are each so different and incredible. My favorite was Fresh Guacamole by the filmmaker PES. it’s so clever and humorous. Don’t you think? His other videos have a similar cheekiness and beauty to them.
