"your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. if you haven't found it yet, keep looking. don't settle. as with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. and, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. so keep looking until you find it. don't settle."

byrdie is going on vacation for a bit (i wish I was going on vacation, i totally need one!). as much as i'd like to blog all day long, i'm a bit busy lately and i can't keep up with it (and unfortunately, it doesn't pay the bills). booo. i might be able to post sporadically ... bear with me!

for some great reading in the meantime, check out some of my favorite sites ... Lonny, Fresh Equation, The Manrepeller, Style Me Pretty, NYMag, Juenbug, Oliveaux ... and of course you could start from the beginning of byrdie and make sure you've seen it all :) ...

i wish i was escaping to the amazing Tensing Pen in Jamaica (above) for a vacation ... *sigh* ...

until next time ...

magazine monday (guest blogger edition).

happy monday, folks! i hope everyone had a fun weekend! i tried to enjoy the amazing weather we had in NYC and played some basketball in Carroll Park with the bf (definitely sore today). we got lots of stuff for our apt at IKEA (and spent saturday afternoon putting together chairs and moving furniture around), watched some football (go bucks!), etc. now on to the important stuff ...

this week, my sister, kristin, is the guest blogger for magazine monday (apparently an obsession with magazines runs in the family)! below are some of her faves (some dating back to 2004!) ...

p.s. check out her blog, her FB page and her website - lots of good health info and great recipes (some that i will be trying)!!
