Friday Finds :: Inspiration Roundup

My life this week…

It was my birthday a week ago and I celebrated with some cupcakes, Mexican food, champagne/beer/margaritas, and low-key, good company.

I love stumbling across sites like this that are just pure coolness.

Bri Emery is one of my favorite style/design bloggers and Max Wanger is my favorite photographer, and when they collaborate I feel like an angel gets its wings.

One of the best things about today’s social media is that you get to see what Chinese hipsters on the subway are wearing from your friend who lives there:

Another one of my favorite photographers blogged about her son’s 7th birthday party and the year in his life, and it was just so adorable, it stayed with me.

Obviously, the President and VP finally speaking up about marriage equality. As a wedding photographer, I can’t wait until  I can photograph a legal marriage between two people who love each other of the same sex in California.

Two episodes of Tardy for the Wedding on Bravo. The cringe-worthy moments between Kim and her new in-laws and their discomfort of who she is as a person entirely. My TV taste has a range- not every night can be Downton Abbey.

Interviews with Sasha Baron Cohen and Andy Cohen on Howard Stern.

Obsessed with the new show on HBO called Girls.

Parks & Rec killed it this year, and last night’s finale was awesomeness.

I’m always curious who reads this blog… is it just clients and friends of clients who want to see pictures? Is it just my friends? I’d love to interact with whoever is out there… what did I miss this week?

    • OMG, thanks so much for commenting Becca- not only am I glad you’re a reader, but that blog is so fascinating to me, to see the work AL was doing six years ago! Such a cool coincidence, too.ReplyCancel

  • hey leslie – i read whenever you post because you are on my google reader. i am crap at commenting because i’m almost always reading on my itouch while a baby sleeps on me.ReplyCancel

  • Woohoo! I got a shout out. Trust me, I’ve been stalking the Chinese hipsters for you. I’ve decided that I’m going to try to get the cool spy photos I know you’d get if you were here. 🙂

    Thanks for another show suggestion! I’ll check it out. I finished Downton Abbey. Super sad that I now have to wait for new episodes like everyone else.

    Glad to see you blogging again. You know you’re my favorite!ReplyCancel

    • That’s why you needed to buy a stealth camera like mine! How good is Downton Abbey btw? Obsessed, and cannot wait for the new season.ReplyCancel
