Shortlist #4: Specs, tunes and hawks.

A collection of things I’m currently obsessing over:My new Prestons in gimlet tortoise by Warby Parker.
Sidenote: love the co-ed shirt by G1 Goods — and it’s on sale right now!


The release of Beasts of the Southern Wild on Wednesday (NYC/LA).
I seriously get goosebumps every single time adorable 6 year-old

In my summer make-up bag:
NARS eyeshadow: Silk Road (icy peach pink/ rose gold with gold flecks)

Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Bourbon
Diorshow Black Out mascara in Kohl Black
Anastasia brow gel
Anastasia brow powder duo in Brunette
Sephora Collection IT brow filler brush
While I am usually a black eyeliner type of girl, this summer I’ve been changing it up with tones that are softer but help bring out my eyes (which are a funny, changeable color that’s almost blue).  I’ve been embracing warm, golden colors and perfecting my brows.  I quite like it, especially with my new specs!

I’ve been constantly listening to the magnificent playlists Moonrise Kingdom put together on 8Tracks.com.  I’ve always thought that one of the most important characters in Wes Anderson films is the soundtrack, but in this case we get individual playlists organized (and inspired) by all the characters.  Find them here.

A few weeks ago, while walking down Sullivan Street in Greenwich Village, a full grown red-tailed hawk swooped down right next to me, picked up a tasty sparrow treat and proceeded to eat it in three bites while sitting on a fence not much taller than me!  I’ve since found out that who I met that evening was one half of a Village celebrity couple: Bobby and Rosie, the NYU red-tailed hawks.  I’ve seen them a few other times in the park, but the best way to watch them — and their two babies! — is via the NYU Hawk Cam, which you can find here (I’ve been watching nonstop).
