Happy List! {by Gwen}

Friday, February 13, 2015


Happy long weekend! Is it a long weekend for you? I hope it's a long weekend for you. Let's celebrate with a happy list from my friend Gwen, who has amazing style (she just wore a blush tutu to a party that will have you Googling blush tutus for days). She's also always so cheerful and knows how to appreciate a good meal, which makes cooking with her or grabbing a bite always a delight. 

10 things that are making Gwen smile as of late:

1. Vintage-inspired Valentines to send to friends who live far away.
2. CafĂ© Tola's garlic-roasted pork ("lechon") empanada, which is always worth the bad breath. 
3. Perfectly imperfect curls, much easier for me to achieve with a flat iron instead of a curling wand. 
4. Big Brothers Big Sisters at a Boys and Girls Club in Uptown, where I've been paired with my Little for almost three years.
5. NARS Audacious Lipstick, which provides an almost indelible pop of color in the bleak midwinter. 
6. "Jane the Virgin," network TV's best new show.
7.  Meyer lemons, gifted to me from my generous landlord and waiting for the perfect recipe. 
8. "The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace." It's brilliant, tragic and already on my list for my favorite reads of 2015.
9. Karaoke. At any time of day.
10. The Invisibilia podcast, which (almost!) fills the Serial-shaped hole in my heart.

Thank you for sharing, Gwen! I feel like I have a new list of things to eat, read, watch and wear to tackle this weekend ;-)
