Laundry, one of my least favorite things to do in life. But sometimes you have to get the pen marks and stains out of your faux Frenchie sweatshirt.
The highlight of this week was Cinco De Mayo, which I think most agencies use as an excuse to party during working hours (I’m not complaining). The highlight of my day was witnessing a guac-off (guacamole making contest). And with that came a horrifying realization that out of seven contest entries, I unknowingly picked #5 as my favorite…which contained the secret ingredient of bacon. Bacon in guacamole!? I’m vegetarian. Ah well. We all got a good laugh. I do have to say one thing: just because designers sit behind computers all day doesn’t mean they’re weak. I watched an entire staff swing away at a pinata and let’s just say that if I crossed some of them in a dark alley, I’d run for my life.
For the last few years, I’d been using some badly painted second-hand night stands but I wasn’t sure what to replace them with. Then, when I was in Iceland, I noticed that our hotel room had acrylic nightstands. And after reading one too many home decor magazines, I know that acrylic in general is great because it allows light to come through and makes a room feel much more open (perfect for black-walled rooms like ours). I found these tables on Ebay. P.S. The phone and curtains are a few years old and both came from Urban Outfitters.
Joey has been working hard on his new line of 80s inspired skateboards, Luna. We stopped by a pool last weekend to take a few snapshots of the outcome.
I’ve just pulled out a stack of my favorite design books to start work on a post for next week…

Last night Joey served me homemade popcorn in a heart-shaped bowl. Sweetest. Have an awesome weekend! xoxo
