Please take a few minutes to watch this video.  Life in Hong Kong is beautiful, and I want to share it with you.  This is amazing, and similar to the timelapse at Coachella last year.

Emilie in Love

Getting back to work ain't easy these days.
This adorable Asia diary was brought to my attention by a friend.  The illustrations truly capture what it's like living in Hong Kong.  Take a moment to enjoy Emilie in Love

360 Mezze Platter

Pita, tzatziki, falafel, tabouleh, lentils, hummus 
Why did it take me 3 years to find my favorite meal ever???  This glorious sampler can be found at ThreeSixty.

Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph, thank you for everything we had.
A friend posted this amazing tumblr on facebook, and I had to share it too.  The concept is simple: take a picture from the past, in the present.  The results are unbelievably moving.  Kinda wish I thought of this.

Happy 4th

I hope you all had a lovely 4th of July weekend.  Yesterday I walked into our bbq party, heard this song, and could have easily cried.  I love America!

This is my all time favorite version of this song.  This is what America sounds like.


Maybe I'm getting used to the elevator self portraits.
I dig this outfit.  This is actually a couple Fridays ago, from work to a triple-decker house party.  With my Kindle copy of American Gods in tow!

8 + My Closet Application

Dress from Nordstrom rack
FYI these are my fashion choices from last week.  I think I'm up to Wednesday and it appears that I was too tired to deal (more on that in another post) and just wanted to thrown on a dress and get on with my day.

Before I lose my entire readership, perhaps I could entice you with an application I've been using called MyCloset.

I have been DREAMING for just over half my lifetime of a computer program that could style outfits and itemize a wardrobe like the movie Clueless.  Half my lifetime.

It only occurred to me last month that I should do some research.  It's 2011, surely a comparable program has to be out there!  And there are some, but I'm a busy lady and don't have a whole lot of time for wardrobe management.  So I took this search a step forward.  Clearly, there must be an app for that!

It's possible that the equivalent iphone app is better, but the one I use on my beloved android is simple and good enough for me.

MyCloset, which is free on the android market is very very basic.  You enter your wardrobe items (meaning you need to take a picture of everything individually) and coordinate your outfits on the calendar.  Categories include: tops, bottoms, outerwear, accessories, shoes, and other.  This is actually quite limiting and probably my only complaint.  For me and prob just about everyone else, tops would include dresses, sweaters, vests, and even under the category of shirts there's tanks, tube tops, blouses, button downs...  Yes, possibly my only complaint.

Once you got your wardrobe in there, or at least enough to get you started, you can sort things by color, note what you wore on what day and also sort by how frequent you wear something.  I know I know, it's totally geeky, but simultaneously totally fab.

I hope to be less boring once caught up with blogging.
