Real Life

Whenever I read other peoples' blogs, they're always posting about doing cute things and exploring their cities and loving life. I post a lot about the fun stuff I do, but I'm working on making a point of posting more about real life. Real life on Sunday meant lazing around on the couch reading and doing work, leaving a pile of dishes from brunch with friends in the kitchen. Real life sometimes means we're so busy that we go two or three weeks without doing laundry. Sometimes it means I get grouchy for no real reason and take it out on Jonny when he's done nothing wrong. And sometimes real life means travel and dancing and good food and great things that often get featured on this blog. But there's a balance. And I want to make sure anyone who reads this knows that.

Lemon and Ginger Tea

Lately I've been obsessed with making this lemon and ginger tea - I average about three cups a day. It's super easy, the ingredients are cheap, and it's really good for you. Give it a try!

I've made a million excuses for not blogging because I'm so busy, but I'm going to start working on at least blogging about some of the potential Lydali suppliers that I've been so busy talking with! 
Beldi is a husband and wife team (gotta love that!) based out of New York, and they work with craftsmen in Morocco to bring us these amazing rugs, plus lots of cool home accessories and leather goods. I've listed a few of my favorites below, and I hope they'll be showing up for sale on Lydali in the next few months!
(P.S. This is my first time doing any kind of Photoshopping for this blog. Do you love it or hate it?)

Rainy Sunday

I know I've been a little m.i.a. for awhile. I've been feeling super overwhelmed with a lot of different things, and all of my time spent on the computer these days is for work, not for fun. Today is a rainy one in San Francisco, so I'm taking some time to hang inside and catch up on a bunch of stuff (and also cheer on the 49ers!). Hopefully I'll be back with more fun to share soon, but for now, a picture of what the day looks like here (sans the Eiffel tower). xo

Staying Creative

Over the past couple of months, the side project I'm working on has required a lot of creativity that I haven't had to practice in my everyday work. It's funny how creative thinking slips away from you if you don't practice it, but it comes right back when you do. I found this list super helpful in reviving my creativity, and I plan to refer to it often in 2012!
