Happy weekend one and all! I'm still coming down from the excitement after Isaac's amazing new art space, Lyles & King, opened last week. There's something so thrilling about the prospect of a family business, and the show looks incredible. I'm beyond proud of him and so grateful to the artists, friends and family (shout out especially to my amazing father-in-law, Dave) who helped us every step of the way. Just 4 weeks ago, this beautiful gallery was a Mexican restaurant! The space is at 106 Forsyth Street at Broome Street in Chinatown, so make sure to stop by and say hi. He's the hunk behind the desk. I've been feeling a little fragile this week (so many big changes afoot!) so I'm going to take this weekend slowly and mindfully. Lots of water, podcasts, books and (hopefully) phone chats with my nearest and dearest across the water. Have a beautiful one, friends. See below for my best of the net this week.

Extreme fudgelling. Not what it sounds like.

Excited to hang out poolside here this summer. Day passes cost $45...that's about the same as a car pool to the Rockaways.

My hair gets so flat during the warmer months. I've heard great things about this hair powder
