I stayed at that boutique hotel in Argentina in 2008. Pictures do not do justice to the beautiful interior and lovely wood throughout. I've always dreamed that I could go back to run it. Thanks for posting!

I love when your new favorite lists show up on your blog. You always find such interesting things for us to check out. I never seem to run into any of the interesting items that show up here. Im just curious how you go about finding all of these wonderful things.

HS: Thanks Aaron - there's not much method to the madness - they're just things I come across in my day to day reading, linking, work, etc...

I didn't know Charles Phan had a book on the way. Exciting. Thanks for the 'heads up'.

August 12, 2012

Thank you again, Heidi.
Sunny days to you!

I have that lemon cake on my to-bake list. It looks simply scrumptious!

August 12, 2012

Heidi I always find so many interesting things from your favorite lists.
It's not the first time you're signaling that Classe Ouvriere's honey, it looks really amazing. I want to find it so badly as I'm a big consumer of honey.
I'll bet there's one reseller here in NYC!

HS: It's worth seeking out Mike - I should have it back on the site toward the end of the month...

Your lists are both delicious and dangerous. Dangerous for my wallet, that is. Within a minute of reading Jen Altman's list, I had a book in my Amazon cart. :)

Nice wind map :)

August 13, 2012

I was so happy to see that you were doing your favorites list! I always find things i love! The wind map is fascinating and I loved the preview of the sushi chef movie. Have you ever read "The Last Chinese Chef"? It's fiction - but reminds me of the "Jiro Dreams of Sushi"..

August 13, 2012

I just saw Jiro last weekend and found it super inspiring! I even watched the extra features and deleted scenes. I found it so endearing how humble and hard-working Jiro, his sons, the apprentices, and the "masters" are. Their approach to their work is something I strive for. It even inspired me to be neater and more deliberate about my home, since I tend do let clutter pile up.

Oh, and I've been making the Muesli with starwberry sauce for the past three weeks, except I use steel-cut oats instead of muesli. I love it! Just the thought of it can get me out of bed in the morning.

How crazy! I clicked on that beach listing in Belize and I just stayed in those cabanas this past April on a family vacation! Caye Caulker is beautiful and Colinda's Cabanas were one of the nicest places to stay. ;) Reasonably priced, too... Absolutely gorgeous beach and breezes...

August 13, 2012

Isn't Jiro Dreams of Sushi filmed beautifully? He talked about sushi, & I was inspired in life. You know?

August 13, 2012

Hiro Dreams of Sushi was fantastic...made me want to go there NOW! I hadn't heard about the Colors of Confinement...just finished reading Buddha in the Attic...very interesting.

I always look forward to your Favorites list, that you included Bea Feitler gave rise to memories from long ago. I had the wonderful experience of working with her at Vanity Fair — she'd already made a name for herself, was well-known and well-regarded. She also had an unerring instinct for beauty, much like yourself.

HS: That must have been amazing. That's one thing I miss about working in a larger creative workspace - the overall collaborative, social nature of your day to day. The way you never really know who you'll work with next, or on what...

August 14, 2012

I so look forward to these lists. I love to see we share some favorites (I have been making Sarah's bircher meusli like mad) but more than anything I love the beautiful sites and stories and blogs you introduce me to. And that wind map! I wish I could make that live, in motion, on a wall in my house. Thank you for staying inspired, for inspiring.

Hi Heidi! I have been following for a long time and love your blog! A friend and I were just talking about brussel sprout relish. I'm wondering ifyou've tried anything?

August 16, 2012

August 16, 2012
