freitag favorites + visiting friends

It has been awhile since I last shared the things that have caught my eye recently. I really wanted to share most of these last week, but was so ecstatic to have my dear friend Kim arriving for the weekend that I forgot to finish the post.  Instead, we spent the weekend walking around Rigi, soaking in the indoor/outdoor pool at the Mineralbad, and enjoying plenty of time to catch-up on all the news from home.

Hooray for visitors!

So, now to my favorites…

  • jewels // The process of making this beautiful emerald bib necklace (via the WSJ).
  • for dinner // Fall definitely calls for more curry in the kitchen. We devoured this one last week. Finally, in memory of Marcella Hazan, I recommend you try her beloved tomato sauce.
  • psl // The Pumpkin Spice Latte made its way to Zürich this year. It isn’t one of my favorites (too sweet), but I wonder whether this homemade version might be a little tastier.
  • keeping warm // Am I crazy, or are these Dutch-made Pendleton wool coats recycled from blankets kind of cool for fall/winter layering? If not, I guess I’ll just have to put on my old Patagonia standbys, apparently now high fashion inspiration.
  • hashtags // Martin is of the opinion that hash tags are valuable in every day conversation. I disagree, but maybe I am in the minority.

  • at home with // Gisele & Tom’s LA Home = wow. And, if I lived in Stockholm, could I please, please live here?
  • fall beauty // I love the eye makeup from Marc Jacobs’ fall runway show (and the gold eyebrows at Dior). And finally, I kind of love Miroslava Duma’s style (and particularly her hair here). What do you think…should a shorter bob be in my future?

I hope you enjoyed at least one of the above links, and have a happy fall weekend!
