In true KNIT WIT form I am off to Florence for PITTI FILATI Thursday, this is really the knit designers dream come true. A week in Florence, looking at yarns, dinners in the hills of Tuscany and hanging with our other knit-wit friends from NY, Stockholm, London and Hong Kong... And to top it off my boyfriend is coming with me and we are going early to relax on the beach in the Cinque Terre prior. Seriously, some chic attack business up in here. Anyway this is a little video that really gives you an idea what happens when a bunch of people (geeks) get together to look at yarn. It's not just a sweater, its love. So now, go hug your cashmere. Because I said so.
So I have been slightly concerned that I kind of, sort of, well.... maybeeeee want to turn my blog into a place where I just display my own photos.... and I swear I will try to not do that to you but when this is what your working with... I just HAVE to share... So here is a lovely NY Saturday on the East River... I hope your Saturday has been dreamy kittens.
(oh and THREES.... do you see that? It's the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridge in one photo... chiccccc attack)
How cool is this? The late TOBIAS WONG created the concept of the NEW YORK TIMES candle that actually smells like newsprint!!! He was so genius.... oh and since we are on the subject, how cool is my friend ALEJANDRO's tattoo?? Alejandro is the awesome creative director of MARCIANO. See you in Florence Ale.
What up DEREK LAM diffusion line??? Nice to meet you. Naturally the line gets its name from the DL headquarters address on Crosby and was inspired by the downtown girl that you just may find meandering by at any time of the day ... kina love this.
Dude, Nature is awesome. Have you seen a sexier animal? Me-owwwww! I was searching the web for snow leopards to pass to our Print Designer and I just about fell out of my seat when I came across this beauty. The coloring here is too good... you have to enlarge him to marvel in his true beauty. Ok I am an official cat freak. So chic.
Theres nothing quite like some down time at home on a Sunday night. Hope your weekend was a dream... Arno and I had a lazy afternoon in McCarren park yesterday listening to live music, the only one we really knew was Surfer Blood but it was such a nice afternoon.
Happy Friday Kittens. I just have to share with you my two guys that I adore. Don't you just want to squeeze them!? They are both so awesome Gerrr....
Well have a fantastic weekend and fill it with something that you enjoy.... I personally need to relax, been a bit crazed at work. Going to take a few deep breaths before I am back at it on Sunday.
Kittens! Summer is here!! It's official. We celebrated the arrival this past Sunday by enjoying an amazing brunch accompanied by grapefruit margaritas, then it was back on the bikes for a little sunset ride across the Manhattan Bridge into DUMBO for some amazing Manhattan skyline action... Spread the love. Summer is here.

I thought I would share with you this amazing concoction I have discovered ... a GREEN smoothie that is so good but probably even so much better for you. Im not kidding, this thing is incredible. So here is how I roll:
In blender combine 1.5c Silk Coconut Milk, 1c Kale (remove the spine) and 1c spinach leaves. Blend. Add 1 banana and 1/2 a pear. Blend. Add a handful of ice cubes and a teaspoon of honey. Blend. Pour in a Mason Jar and enjoy the shit out of it.
