Salmagundi

I love days when you just cannot possibly predict the outcome and at days’ end you lie in bed and drift off to sleep thinking “wow.“  Life has been unfolding this way for some weeks now and it has led to unusual pursuits, festive activities and high-times.  A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of accompanying my friend, Chantelle (loyale graphic designer extraordinaire) to Charleston, SC.  Two words express my love for this little city: historic splendor…cobble stone streets, a perfectly charming water front, stupendous restaurants and intriguing sites around every corner.  I had the opportunity to meet with Garden & Gun magazine which is based downtown and had a delightful meeting regarding RiverRun 2012 followed by a jaunt to Sullivan’s Island where we dined at Poe’s Tavern and had a late night swim in the balmy ocean. Prior  to this I had a rambunctious weekend in Durham/Raleigh with my dearest high school pal Nini, who is finishing up a fellowship at Duke in the coming weeks; that weekend was replete with vintage shopping, an insanely fun dance party at Five Star dj’d by 9th Wonder and the best brunch of our lives at Milltown in Carrboro. Other leisure activities have included hanging in the race pit at Bowman Gray, tubing down the Dan River, sipping my way through the Salute Wine Festival, Dash baseball games and unearthing epic new music, like Frank Ocean, Blood Orange and Jonsi (one needs a summer sound track after all).  The last special treat that came my way was discovering this clip of Natalie Portman on Between Two Ferns wearing loyale’s Valencia Mini today…it’s been an exceedingly sensational couple of weeks and the way things are looking, it is only going to get better…

xoxo, Jenny
