1. INFINITY DIPTYCH - I finally own a piece of real art work!!! This piece means so much to me for so many reasons. First it was done by my friend Lisa Hunt - yup! MY friend the brilliant Lisa Hunt. I only say her name twice and boast knowing her because I know that she is gonna be huge. So talented and so creative! It just makes me happy to see people have a vision and make shit happen - awesome! And not only that but her pieces are truly beautiful. This piece in particular is “hypnotic” (as it says on her website). A series of gold infinty symbols woven together on a deep dark indigo paper - split in two - a magnificent piece of art work made up of two matching part - eternity, everlasting, without limits. I mean...I done!!!
2. FRIED SPICY CHICKPEAS - Ok these chickpeas are nothing new to my life and neither is Bar Corvo. I literally live across the street and ok I might frequent the restaurant a few times a week - I mean I try to spread it out but...sometimes I get off the train and the restaurant calls me. I typically rotate the same 4 or 5 things on the menu (such a creature of habit) but there is one thing that is a constant - the fried spicy chickpeas (and a beer of course - might be THE perfect combo!). The other night though...whoever made my fried chicpeas...what??? They sprinkled love all over them !!
3. WOMEN’S NIKE® COURT MAJESTIC SNEAKERS - I have so been wanting a pair of Stan Smith’s and then I saw these. Done! Done! and Done! I ordered them just knowing they would be perfection and...they so didn’t disappoint! There was a minor altercation with the post office and they almost got sent back but...we were meant to be and the lady at the post office was kind enough to check again for me (I think she felt sorry for me - there were no actual tears but...) I knew they were fly from the get go but when a dude on the train rockin some white on white Nike Dunks said “Yo, those are kinda cute!” all I could do was look down at them, smile and then say “right???”
