Frantic Packing + Blinks

Something about this space makes me feel like floating. I adore everything about it. (spotted on A Merry Mishap)

Drowning doesn't look like drowning. As a former lifeguard and swim instructor, I beg of you to read this article as we welcome swimming season. Knowledge is power.

Have you heard about Hello Giggles, the brand new humor website co-founded by the fabulous Zooey Deschanel? A must-visit for all you lovely gal pals of mine.

It's going to be a jam-packed weekend full of cleaning, packing, outings in Brooklyn and an extra long, must-get-done-by-Monday to do list. I'm dumb-founded that the end of June already descended upon us. Anyhow, have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you back here in a couple of days. Much love.


  1. Lots of things for me to check out, as usual...thanks! When do you leave? I'm so excited for you!!

  2. Happy weekend & happy packing to you! By the way, I have about six million suggestions for your trip to Paris, by the way. I promise to send you a big e-mail with all the details this weekend!

  3. Jame's work is my total 100% favourite. He had an exhibition in Ludlow St recently and I was so tempted to jump on a flight just to go to it!

    Happy packing! So excited for you!

  4. i know, it's almost july! so crazy. i love hello giggles. hooray for funny girls. good luck this weekend!

  5. Agreed-how is it late June and vacations upon us? Although I have a dirty secret to confess-I packed our clothes twice before a "final" pack...last weekend. I'm a lunatic.

    I loved Hello Giggles, and all these wonderful images. The perfect antidote to a frenzied Friday morning!

    xoxox, Lena

  6. I've been loving Hello Giggles, so great. Have a great weekend love!

  7. I love the picture of the dancer! <3

  8. Love all of those pictures, and I' going right now to read that article.

  9. Those are chocolate bars?! Wow! And I love that dancing photograph as well. I hope you had a lovely weekend, Kayla!

  10. P.S. Thanks for posting that drowning article. I just read it and it confirmed what I've thought for years. There was one summer where I remember drowning. I was looking up through the water at my dad and brother and I knew that I was drowning. When my dad finally pulled me out and I told everyone I was drowning, no one ever believed me because I didn't show any obvious signs like the article points out is not, in fact, signs of drowning. Why don't they teach THIS in school/swimming classes?!


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
