This totally addictive song by The Raveonettes is helping me through. The repetitive guitar absolutely makes me want to get things done.

So, without further adieu, check out this lady-approved list of (non-exclusive) man treats.
1. Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Body Wash
2. (MALIN + GOETZ) Sage Styling Cream
S brought home this rocking hair product following a trip to F.S.C. Barbers in the Village (a Christmas gift recommendation that included an old fashioned shave spotted on the always awesome Cup of Jo.)
Short story long? This is a grand styling product. It adds subtle control to a short boy style without being reminiscent of Pauly D. from Jersey Shore. Fist pump!
It also smells quietly lovely.
3. L'Occitan Eau de Toilette
For the most part, I hate cologne. It reminds me of awkward junior high school dances when boys would douse themselves in overly fragrant, often unfortunate, man smells that most likely came from their daddy's medicine cabinets. Was this ever a scene in Freaks and Geeks? If not, it totally should have been...
That being said, this peppery nutmeg scent is the antithesis of any smell that would ever be found in a school gym. It's welcoming, masculine and reminds me of mine and S's first date.
4. Clinique for Men Face Scrub
This bad boy has become a new favorite in our household. Not only does it give you that dentist clean feeling at least twice-a-day, it also erases any hint of dreaded cigar breath. This comes in quite handy for my guy.
Work it, boys!

Luckily, Kate Spade's always amazing tumblr came to my rescue with this playful stop motion video by Julianna Goodman yesterday.
This colorful bit of fun is set against a jazzy mash-up of Radiohead and Dave Brubeck.

Do you ever feel like you're living in an episode of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm?

On that note, here are two fav clips from the show to get us through this most annoying hump day.
Watch Larry open a package, and
go out for coffee.
Season 8, which debuts this year, takes place in New York. Score!

One of Soho's most revered food trucks, Calexico Carne Asada (located at the corner of Wooster and Prince Streets), has expanded its tasty reach to Brooklyn in the form of not one, but two, restaurants.

Today, I am listening to The Tallest Man on Earth's album, The Wild Hunt. It's a nice soundtrack for easing your way back into the work week.
The Tallest Man on Earth is actually Swedish musician Kristian Matsson. The majority the songs on this album are simple, somewhat raw recordings of the musician's rather moving guitar pickings and captivating vocals.
More reminiscent of a Mississippi blues man than you might be envisioning, the album sounds Southern enough to have me missing home.
Check out a few sample songs below.
P.S. Nice 'stache!

These are perfect to wear to an outdoor brunch during those first warm days of Spring. I'll take all three of the above, please.

That being said, I'm a little surprised at how much I dig these faux animal heads. How funny would it be to see any one of these strategically placed on the wall of a small apartment? How wonderfully random!

I would love to mount the solid rhino option above between the two narrow windows of our living room.

Feeling the need for a gigantic leather clutch after spotting the above image on Apartment 34 this morning.
I've always been a fan of clutches. They are sleek, chic and feel great tucked under your arm. The problem? They are usually too tiny to fit what every girl needs to bring with when she leaves the house: M.I.L.K. (a clever acronym my mother uses which stands for "money, ID, lipstick, keys"-hilarious).
I'm sweating this shiny gold option from agent reclaimed's Etsy shop pretty hard. Great liner!
This ecru option is pretty fabulous as well.

Still, eating for the next month does sound appealing, so this adorable (and delightfully priced at $100) strappy pair from Zara might be just what I'm looking for.
