Flamingos and Unicorns (and Brooklyn Life so Far).

Happy Friday, friends! I’m so happy the weekend is here mostly because it means that the mail man won’t be coming and I get a little break from redecorating. The big thing this week was that my TV came and I had cable installed. I’ve actually never had cable (except for when I lived with my ex boyfriend) so this is a sort of wonderful development. I watched the entire season of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix (so good!!) in between working + rearranging, and that was just such a fun treat!

I love my new home. I didn’t realize how happy moving would make me until I actually moved out. I like that I can go into the city every day if I want to, but I like coming home to my more quiet neighborhood.  I know my mailman’s name, the UPS guy’s name, the names of everyone at my cozy little coffee shop (okay, the wine store too!) and I’ve only been here two weeks. It’s such a nice change of pace. I also didn’t realize how much Williamsburg has to offer until I moved. The Whole Foods is amazing, we have a Sweetgreen and a By Chloe… there’s even a Le Labo and a Credo Beauty. Basically, it’s awesome.

I hope you guys have fun weekend plans… I’m excited to lay low! The only really plans I have is that my best friend and I are going to the premiere of the new Zac Posen documentary (with Nexxus!) at the Tribeca Film Festival tomorrow night. I can’t wait… it looks really good!

This unicorn cuff is from my friend Deirdre’s latest collection. She is so amazingly talented. I love the unicorn collar too!

    Grace! I am loving all the home updates on Instagram stories. Looks like Tyrion has settled into his new pad.

    P.S. this dress makes me want to skip past spring and straight for summer. You look GREAT!

    I love this dress so much! Maybe it’s because I live in Florida, and the pink flamingos remind me of my balmy homestead. I don’t know, but it looks super-cute and comfortable. Comfort is always key for me. That purse looks great with the dress too, by the way 🙂
