Overheard in New York

Our New Motto

Perceptive woman: Anytime you overhear people, if you only hear a second of what they say, it's always completely stupid.

--Greenwich Village

Is It Wrong That This Seems Reasonable to Us?

(cabbie cuts bus off, both cab and bus are stopped at traffic light. Bus driver opens his window)
Bus driver: I'm gonna hit one of you! You know, it's my goal to hit one of you people before I retire, it really is--you almost just made it happen! You people gotta learn someday! (turns to passenger) We're allowed one accident per year. I'm saving all of mine for that.

--M15 Bus to South Ferry

That's Why It's the Ironyvator

Dude #1: What're you even talking about?
Dude #2: The thing with Cheryl.
Dude #1: What's wrong with you? That was this morning! Get over it, already!
Dude #2: Uh...what'd you think I was talking about?
Dude #1: The asshole who shoved past us on the escalator.
Dude #2: Oh...I didn't notice.
Dude #1: See? That kind of thing, that's what Cheryl was talking about. She has a point, you know.

Now Shut the Fuck Up, You Unwanted Accident

Little Girl: Mommy, why do people in New York always wear black?
Mommy: I don't know. Maybe they just don't like looking pretty.

--Upper East Side

Intercom: Please take a headset before you get on the plane, because they're free now. They're actually free once you get on the plane, but I charge $50 labor for bringing them to you once you're on. So it's in your best interests to take one now. Can you tell I'm a happy person?


Okay so If I had to overhear one of my conversations it would definitely be

One of the trillion people who read my blog daily ? - Hey Z, why are you being such a crappy blogger?
Lazy Z - bah, I donno man just with school and stuff...
OTPWRMBD - well get your act together, girl !

I will. I will.

Here  is the link to Overheard in New York, A website that has left me laughing hysterically countless times...

For Annie

With Annie gone,
whose eyes to compare
with the morning sun?

Not that I did compare,
But I do compare
Now that she's gone.

Miley Cirus Haters Unite!

Okay so, people either love her or hate her, or don't know who she is. Try and guess which one I am ... ?

From Post Secret.

I'm Back !

I just had the most amazing trip to Boston, and will totally be talking to you about later on... But for now I must say goodnight, because it is ridiculously late and I am, as per usual, deadly tired.

Secrets aren't for the weak-hearted

Here is your dose of secrets... As usual from the wonderful Post Secret .

Monday, September 8, 2008

The new O.P.I collection is more desirable than ever... It's going to be very hard to convince myself NOT to buy these lucious shades and stick to the 2$ run-of-the-mill pharmacy ones !!! The names are also quite hilarious, and always make me wonder whether I could ever be employed as an O.P.I name inventor (which will hopefully have the job benefits of free nail polish... ). Okay, maybe I'll just buy one. or two. or three. But seriously, 10$... No way can it cost that much to make one teeny weeny bottle of (very very beautiful) nail polish. Why must you make me suffer O.P.I ?

2. " Tickle my France-y "
3. " Parlez-vous O.P.I "

Learning to love you more

Today, after a long walk across my neighborhood, I decided to visit my local bookstore, which usually contains the most amazing selection of what we could call "indie" books. As per usual, I spent hours looking at each cover and spotting the ones I would buy (if indeed, I had more than just 1.01 $ in my pocket), and I found this little treasure :

The book is has the post-secret concept, only not at all anonymous and with more directions. It consists of  a series of projects made by the general public, in response to directions given by two artists called Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher. I decided to post one of my favorites, #63, to help you understand better.

" Assignment #63
Make an encouraging banner.

Think of something encouraging you often tell yourself. For example: Everything will be ok. Or: Don't listen to them. Or: It'll blow over. Now make a banner, making sure to follow these instructions:

1. Draw each letter of the sentence on a large piece of colored construction paper or big squares of fabric. One letter per piece. Draw them blocky so you can cut them out.
2. Cut them out.
3. Glue each one onto a piece of construction paper or fabric that is a contrasting color.
4. Then glue the edges of all the pieces of paper or fabric together to make a banner.
5. Hang the banner in a place where you or someone else might need some encouragement, for example, across your bathroom. Or between two trees so that you and your neighbors can receive encouragement from it. Or in a gas station. "

Just a few of the results :

It is guaranteed that I will try and do all the assignments, trying to post them as I accomplish each one. In the meantime, you can check out The Oliver Family, a family who had quite an artistic mission on their hands... 

p.s. here is the incredible site where you can see other people's projects and get the directions to accomplish your own

She certainly does wear Prada ...

" Anna Wintour (born November 3, 1949, in London) is the editor-in-chief of American Vogue, a position she has held since 1988. She became interested in fashion as a teenager. Her father, Charles, editor of the Evening Standard, often consulted with her on how to make the newspaper's coverage relevant to the youth of mid-1960s London. After dropping out of school at 16, she began a career in fashion journalism. Her career took her across the Atlantic, with notable stints at New York and Home & Garden. She returned home for a tumultuous year to turn around British Vogue, and later assumed control of the franchise's magazine in New York. She revived a stagnant publication, a success that has earned her wide acclaim in the industry. "
- Source : Wikipedia

Anna Wintour exudes confidence and beauty, and reportedly served as inspiration for Miranda's character  in the Devil wears Prada... She certainly does have the power and style to pull that role off !

Promise to keep me warm

As fall approaches, more and more fashion shows are coming out with the new looks for fall and winter 2008. Some are wearable, some are not, but instead of showing you what we can find on the runway I thought it more out of the ordinary to show you the people who watch the shows... In other words, the bold and daring eyes that get a first glimpse of the most sought after designers of the year; the first ones to dissect each show and take out of it these 12 amazing outfits.

Pictures found here.

It is safe to say that out of each outfit, we find either gray or black as the main colors. Bright colors are still present, but toned down and usually only used on one piece of clothing or accessory. Fur is also back in, on coats or as vests. The traditional over sized bag still works this season, I personally think we will never be able to go back to only carrying our necessities, but designers might beg to differ - one day !

Curly hair envy : How to use hair rollers

Top 5 things to know about hair rollers

1) Do NOT use on wet hair, you won't be able to get them out
2) The Sections of hair should not be wider than the roller itself
3) don't pull the rollers out once you are done, go vertical and unwind
4) The dirtier the hair, the more it tends to respond
5) If you're using hot rollers, by the time you finish putting in your last one, you go back to the first one and take it out

William Klein

I was very busy this week participating in a photography workshop; taking pictures on a manual camera and developping each of them by hand is actually pretty hard, but the results are great ! Hopefully, I'll be scanning my prints as soon as possible, but until then I wanted to show you the works of William Klein, one of my favorite photographers.

Storage Idea

All the credit for this idea goes to Evan over at Door Sixteen for his amazing story and coincidentally, storage idea. I've got so many little collections lying around, and this year I made a resolution to at least de-clutter and organise. What better idea than combining these boxes with this cheap ikea bookcase ?. I'm so relieved to have finally found a happy medium between collecting and organising, I can finally feel less guilty for my nesting habits !!

p.s. encourage the little guy by finding a local store here .

Again thanks so much to Evan from Door Sixteen... You just saved me from going on one of TLC'S home makeovers !!

She's no Cinderella

Carla Bruni is a woman of all talents. And when I mean talents I mean this ex-supermodel turned singer turned president's wife has more than just beauty on her side. “She’s a kind of alpha female (...) she was more like a female Don Juan.” quotes Bernard Kouchner, a French foreign minister. Carla is no cinderella, born and raised with her two siblings into a wealthy family, it seems she was meant to become a woman of importance. Wherever she goes, whatever she does, people love her. From Karl Lagerfeld to George W. Bush, she seems to be picking up admirers all across the world, her biggest admirer being Sarkosy who states : “I am happy like nev-air.”

Can't you help but being a teeny weeny bit jealous? I know I can't. I mean, it's okay to have one talent, but she has them all. Not to mention the french president, whom I know could afford a dozen of those Tiffany bracelets and Jimmy Choos we've been dreaming about... So where is our rich and powerful prince charming?

Lately I've had quite an obsession for mermaids, so when I saw a podcast on Jean Paul Gaultier's spring 2008 collection, I started reconsidering my halloween costume. Not that I'm comparing his astonishing pieces to costumes, but the amount of inspiration that we can take from his collection is suprisingly refreshing. Long beautiful hair and plunging necklines completed the mysterious and precious look in the models eyes. Wow. I loved it.

Nobody does it like you do

Christian -
Nobody makes my heart flutter
like your shoes do
this is my declaration
to the love
of a shoe
I never knew
What toe cleavage
could do

p.s. drool-worthy images found here.

This awesome new shop is all the rage these days. I love the fact that all these handmade headpieces come with their own haiku, on top of being so undeniably gorgeous!

Lusting for a victorian fainting couch

Originally uploaded by toybreaker
Don't tell me you've never dreamt of sprawling on a victorian couch, wearing a gorgeous gown and oversized diamonds... I know I have ! I adore this picture, it's just so intricate!

Pourquoi pas?

I just found these beauties here for 70 percent off ! This leads to my conclusion : Ladies, please don't break your bank to buy hot shoes, just be a little patient and wait till they're on sale, you'll end up being really proud of yourself for finding such a deal.

I'm baaaaack !

Oh yes,

After three weeks I'm back at home, quite relieved to be in my own bed. It's funny, I perceive myself as a world traveler yet I like nothing more than staying in bed all day on Sunday and drinking hot tea. Of course, I've already started planning Christmas (my Halloween costume has already been crafted and will be mentioned around then, since I don't think anyone else but me likes thinking of fall), It's something to look forward to and daydream about until I get there. Although surprisingly enough I am trying to live in the moment by living the last of (sniff) summer. WHY, SUMMER? WHY LEAVE SO SOON? I do like fall and winter but my lack of vitamin D gets me nowhere and when it does start to be holiday-ish, normal life takes its course and ruins it all.

Could I be more sour?

Youtube hates me.

Hello all you wonderful people!
Sadly, Youtube has been giving me attitude these past few days (it's probably just me doing something stupid) but still, I wanted to post you guys a video, but instead I will have to post a link to said video;

I have fallen head over heels in love with this amazing, AMAZING movie called Amelie. It's sweet, funny, sad, heartwarming, and just plain lovely, in its own unique way.
I honestly recommend watching the subtitled version instead of the dubbed, if you aren't fluent in french, because American accents do tend to take away from the beautiful parisian atmosphere.
And for those of you who (like me) can't get enough of the beautiful accent francais, here's a link to the trailer for the original French version, "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain":

P.S. Please forgive my computer retardism; I still can't link things properly, and am apparently youtube-challenged, too. I will get the hang of it soon, though, I promise. (A.K.A. As soon as Z gets back and explains everything to me hehe...)

An alternative to taking it to the grave

Do you have a deep dark secret you need to get off your back, but don't know how?
Then Post Secret is the thing for you.

Post Secret is an ongoing community art project that anyone (even you) can be a part of. Basically, it consits of writing a secret of yours that you have never told anyone on the back of a handmade, 4-by-6-inch postcard, and mailing it to this adress;

13345 Copper Ridge Rd
Germantown, Maryland

Isn't that an amazing idea?

Also, Frank Warren (the creator of the project) made a website displaying a few of the many postcards he receives every week.
Here's the link:
There you can find apologies, hopes, regrets, fears, desires, and even silly little confessions, all from real people like you and I.

The website is updated every sunday with twenty or so new secrets.
