All around the MoMA (New York Museum of Modern Art) are these wooden blinds which create the most distinct little shadows on the floors/walls. I actually ended up taking more photos of filtered light in there than of the art. I don’t want to bore you with all of them, but here are just a few of the ones that turned out best.
Instagram user @smoothliminal commented on my post of this photo saying these shadows ^ looked like bones and I quite agree.
^if you live in New York, I highly recommend the Vine’s mint ginger lemonade and black cherry gelato.
Also while I’m making food suggestions a good friend from high school came to visit me in the city and introduced me to the most amazing, adorable cupcake shop. If you’re ever in the city, you must stop at Magnolia Bakery it is truly the real deal.
I have so many things to tell you. First of all, I have created a new page on my blog called Music Forum. This was inspired a reader who commented on one of my posts recommending that I watch the music video for Australia by the Shins. I did, and have been playing it on repeat for several days now. I’ve been a fan of their music for years, but never got around to watching their videos which are all so great. This particular one is quite the day brightener please go watch it when you finish reading this. But anyways, I’ll be posting songs from my current playlists on that page, and I encourage you to comment music suggestions, links to good music videos, screenshots of playlists, etc. Music is such an important part of my life and I don’t feel like my blog reflects that enough. And I am always always open to music suggestions I read through your comments every day and will be sure to check out the songs. And I will add suggestions I enjoy to the next playlist!
In other (not so new) news, I spent another afternoon in a museum. I had a meeting on the Upper East Side again at the ever lovely Bluestone Café and then headed over to the MoMA. There was this new exhibit that I loved so much ~ ^ all the photos of people closing/opening windows. For the longest time, this blog has focused mainly on writing and fashion, and I plan on continuing to post about both of those things, but I also want to start posting more frequently ~ hopefully twice/three times a week once summer arrives ~ about music/art/films/photography. All these things play such huge roles in my life and I don’t write/post nearly enough about them. So prepare yourself for more posts like these.
And finally, some very exciting news: I’ve been working with I’m In Marketing over the past few months to create an app for this blog, and we just completed the Android version. The iPhone app is still in the works, but if you have an Android and want to keep up with this blog in a more mobile way, give the app a download! You’ll get push notifications from yours truly, a forum where I’ll be more accessible than via email, and access to all of my posts/photos. Updates coming soon regarding the iPhone version 🙂 Previews and download link below:
