redonkulous ranunculus!
"Ranunculus is a large genus of about 400 species of plants in the Ranunculaceae" -wikipedia

A certain guy was very smart and got me white daisies for Valentines day - I've come to really dislike roses, especially after seeing five bazillion of them at work. Red roses with babies breath are a lovely gesture, but gentlemen listen to me: get your gal something that reflects her personality. If she's like me, she'll be OVERJOYED.

Anywho, the daisies just started wilting, so I pruned out some and filled in the empty spaces with a new favorite flower - the ranunculus! SO PRETTY. A quick google image search turns up pages and pages of beautiful little guys all in so many fab colors! I'm not always so big on flowers, but sometimes they can really brighten your day.

Just so that this post isn't all about flowers, I will now pronounce my love for New York Magazine's website. Plenty of full articles from the magazine (which I am fully considering subscribing to) plus Vulture (culture blog) and The Cut (fashion blog), so I can keep up to date on my various vices.

What are you reading?

  3. I'm absolutely obsessed with NY Mag, I love when they do recaps of shows, their commentary is hilarious, also not to be missed is the Intel column.
