Braids X Miniskirt

New song by Braids off their upcoming album. I wasn't in love with their second album the way I was with Native Speaker but this new track is good. (Sharing Lemonade because it's my favorite track) 

Wilson and Willy's

The North Loop in Minneapolis just keeps getting better and better. A few weeks ago Wilson and Willy's opened their wonderful shop - full of stunning collaborations, local goodies and free coffee and beer (whoo!). Some of my favorite items were this gorgeous robe by Maison Du Soir and this cool extension cord. If you're in Minneapolis be sure to stop by and don't for get to say hello to the cutest shop dog there ever was, Lamont. 

Wilson & Willy’s is focused on thoughtfully made products for men, women, and the home.We believe that in order to progress as a manufacturing community, we should innovate, collaborate, and share ideas and expertise. We also believe that as consumers, we should do our best to seek out and support these efforts, while having some fun along the way.

Monday Mix #2

This post is a little late, but I still have a few hours till tuesday! I almost went with a scandinavian theme, but Françoise Hardy and pizza ruined that plan - ha. hope you're having a good start to february! 

Reading: Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. This was the first book I checked out with my new library card - woo! This haunting novel tells the true story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, who was the last person to be executed in Iceland. Skillfully weaving the harsh beauty of Iceland into this tale of love, jealously and fate I could almost see the mountains and the idyllic yet desolate landscape. This book is a quick read and perfect for a gloomy winter day. 

Watching: The Danish Poet, a short film written, directed, and animated by Torill Kove and narrated by Liv Ullmann. On Sunday, instead of watching the Superbowl I went to the theatre. One of the films I saw was a compilation of all the animated short films nominated for an Oscar this year. One of my favorites was called Me and my Moulton by Torill Kove. I watched her other short films and this one, The Danish Poet, is my favorite. 

Eating: cast-iron pan tortilla pizza is actually really good and super easy. Tried this recipe tonight and they are as good as they look. i'm always looking for quick meals that aren't expensive or super unhealthy - i.e. eating half a block of cheese. These pizzas were awesome and you can add whatever odd and ends you have in your fridge.
