Here’s the first TiLT in quite a while. I won’t talk about how busy I am, because everyone else is too and that’s boring as hay-ell. Let’s just step back from our nutso lives for a second and take a deep breath. Gods of the library, please deliver me through the end of June’s Emerging Leaders poster session and past the end of advocacy season.
♥ This nearly made me snort. I’m a dork.
♥ The Friends of Carroll Gardens Library have been posting some pretty high-larious photos of recent book donations:
Need these books? Head over to the Carroll Gardens branch of Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday, May 19, between 10 AM and 4 PM.
♥ I am super obsessed with Rookie Mag. Like really. Like I’ve read most of it. Oh, it’s an online magazine for teens. TEENS. Oh well. It’s entertaining, insightful, and is far better than anything that was offered to me as a teen. I love their style and music sections and I am way out of their target demographic. Plus, my girl crush Agent Lover writes for them. For a little introduction to Rookie Mag, check out the Lila Fowler Style Icon entry. Who’s Lila Fowler? SERIOUSLY? Everyone knows the Fowlers! They’re way rich.
Next time the tweens and teens are bugging you, send ‘em over to Rookie.
♥ Speaking of mad style, a total highlight of my weekend was watching Ziegfeld Follies with my boo. It’s not on Netflix streaming, but my trusty library had a copy. I’m glad I read the IMDB page, because I had wondered how Lena Horne felt about her awful costume and the terrible production value of her segment. Now I know. This is one of the two movies where Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire dance together. Anyway, here’s my favorite segment. It stars my girl, Judy:
♥ Zines! I took a trip to Bluestockings and picked up a bunch of magic:
♥ So many books, so many…When will I have time? I’ll hoard these until I have a moment:
Follow Milan on Twitter, OK y’all? Milan’s a doll.
♥ I am not into Pinterest (yet) but I can’t help but appreciate Francesca Lia Block’s Pink Smog page:
♥ Working on my top secret and always in progress DIY project. I purchased the following little trinkets/knick knacks:
Glitter shadow box also from Huitzilli.
Little three legged pig from Fuego 718, one of my favorite stores in Brooklyn. The guy who owns it is the best. There’s always lots of bright colors, glitter, and the B-52s on the radio.
♥ My ever evolving vision board:
♥ And I’ll conclude with this:
