It’s October 3rd. And That Means the First Presidential Debate is Tonight

leave a comment »

GQ: From the first-ever televised presidential debate, September 26, 1960.

And that means the first presidential debate is tonight at 9pm ET. We’ll be watching at barackobama.com/debate, featuring a livestream, a live blog, and a few other live things, probably. See you there.

I’m sure the intern who thought of this campaign slogan is patting himself on the back right now. I suppose it doesn’t matter how you go about advertising so long as you are inclusive of the younger generations, right?

Elizabeth Olsen + Bon Appetit

leave a comment »

As it turns out, Elizabeth Olsen might be more of a foodie than I am. She travels with her own seasonings (sea salts to be specific), has attempted to butcher her own lamb, keeps a warm spot in her heart for bolognese at Bar Pitti, and has a similar affection for/fascination with Eric Ripert. Take me to Il Buco, Lizzie; I am great company.

British Things + Rainy Days = Very British Things

leave a comment »

1. An image from Lox Papers about what to do with yourself on a rainy day (because it’s always a rainy day in Collegetown), 2. an image of a British lady in a hat because apparently the British love crazy hats, and 3. an image of Grace Kelly marrying Rainier III, Prince of Monaco at the St Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco. Source for the English inspiration: Elle Tumblr.

Kate Spade: Still Got It

leave a comment »

I love everything about Kate and Andy Spade’s awesome apartment.  From the photos posted here, I especially appreciate our joint loves for: (1) black paint on a canvas in the living room; a good gin and tonic; stripes, gray, and stainless steel.  From the rest of the Andy + Kate Spade collection on The Selby’s site, I love our appreciation for matchbox collections; entirely red canvases; hell, everything.

Celebrities in Geek Frames

with one comment

Here are a photos of celebrities in (reading) glasses who are inspiring me.  Just a few days ago (two days ago?) I got my eyes checked (finally) and realized that I’ve had all these terrible headaches because one eye was working significantly harder than the other to see. I needed glasses. This is both a YAY and a BOO.  Yay, because glasses are a chic accessory and I love accessories; BOO because (1) I hate wearing things on my eyes; it irritates them so much (though granted being able to read may be different, but I somehow doubt it), (2) because I hate admitting that I have such a flaw, and (3) I do not want my eyes to become dependent on glasses to the point where in three years I’m getting a higher Rx!  Anyway, seems that I can’t avoid any of these issues any longer. I have officially joined the four-eyes club.

After some browsing with a friend, I decided the only frames for me are Buddy Holly geek frames in either black, dark brown, dark olive green, or dark tortoise.  I’ve narrowed down my ideal frames to a pair from Paul Smith, Robert Marc, Martin & Martin, Anglo American, or Ray-Bans.  Tomorrow (or soon), I’ll post photos of the actual frames I’m looking at and hopefully a pair of the frames I buy!  To reading without headaches!

So easy, Ina!  That’s why I love you.  Glamour has posted 6 recipes from Ina Garten’s most recent cookbook how easy is that? on their website.  All of the recipes combined equal the perfect dinner party menu.  Love you lots, Ina.  L&L, Doorr
