Link Love

It's so hard to believe the last weekend of June has come and nearly gone. Summer is flying by already, although I've noticed that NY'ers don't consider summer truly started til about now—whereas Midwesterners say summer starts Memorial Day weekend, because really, who doesn't love as much summer as possible? Let's just hope there's we get an Indian one in the fall, too. 

There's no shortage of events, festivals, exhibits, things to see, places to go, people to meet in the summertime. I had my first (ever!) summer Friday this weekend and have been on the go non-stop since. I swung by the Capwell & Co sample sale and picked up some new gems, hit up the BAMcinemafest to see Happy Christmas (two word review: highly recommend, it's on iTunes!), stayed out late enough to watch the sun rise yesterday morning, slept a few hours, went to the Brooklyn Flea, walked from Fort Greene to Williamsburg to see the Kara Walker exhibit (there's only one week left!!) and closed out the day with dinner at a lovely little restaurant in the 'burg. Needless to say, I slept pretty well, and I was going to stay home & relax some more today but the beautiful weather outside is calling to me and I'm helpless to say no.

This amazing advertisement from Always made me completely re-think the phrase "Like a Girl" (it also may have made my eyes water, just a little).

I was endlessly curious about this history of the Domino Sugar Factory after visiting yesterday. Here's 22 photos from when it was still in operation, and here's all the info you need to know to see Kara Walker's A Subtlety before it closes!

I've been getting non-stop compliments on my Illeteva sunnies (seen here and here). Snag a pair for yourself here.

Amy's NYC is definitely one that I want to live in (and if you want more, check out her instagram feed!).

As I write this, I have two browsers, five windows and around 50 tabs open. Making it a goal to get down to just one tab after reading this article.

Victoria's favorite Paris moments have me dying to make a springtime trip there.

Picking up a pair of emoji-like studs from Alison Lou on M'oda Operandi. My favorite is the Happy Stud!

I've long been a fan of SKT Ceramics—I added this elephant mug to my growing collection yesterday!
