5 For Friday
Well, here we are approaching the weekend, and approaching Easter weekend Easter always is one of those holidays that just sneaks up on me, and sort of blind sides me, perhaps because after moving to NYC it’s never been a holiday to celebrate in any special way. But probably will go for some brunch and then will let the day slip away doing relaxing Sunday things. So no Easter egg hunts for me this year. . . but found this cute idea for extra/leftover eggs that you might have bought for dyeing but never got around to using. A new way to showcase flower buds! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, enjoy the links below, and see you back here next week!
1–Enjoying these illustrated prints of iconic stylish women and their solid “Truths” to live by. I know a few gals in my life who I could gift these to for their next birthdays very easily!
2–If you have the new iPhone 6 or 6s, then you know about taking “live photos” with your camera app. But there’s a new app, Live GIF that will take those live photos and turn them into a GIF for posting on your fave social feeds. Oh, the fun ways your phone continues to just suck you in. . .
3–And speaking of social feeds, Instagram is going the ways of Facebook, and taking away chronological feeds and replacing it with an algorithmic display of “most important”. I know a handful of folks, including myself, who are not so keen on this change, because all it will do is make sure we don’t gloss over the ads. Bah humbug is what I say to the changing of ways with these engagement algorithms.
4–One of my favorite online shops and websites talked about countless times on this blog, Everlane, received an office upgrade, by way of 8,000 square feet! The new office housed in an old 1920s laundry facility. It’s sleek, bright, white and down right gorgeous.
5–Ever the Whit Stillman fan for life now by way of my boyfriend, it’s always a big deal and big news when he’s got a new film making its way into the world. And this time, Stillman takes Jane Austen’s unfinished novella “Lady Susan” and pairs her story with some of his old but fave actresses from Last Days of Disco to deliver Love and Friendship. So May 13 will be eagled eyed on the calendar from hence forth.
