Art and Science...

Last Sunday, the boyfriend and I went to the International Vintage Poster Fair at the Chicago Cultural Center. I wasn't really expecting much but boy, was I blown away. So much poster goodness!

Our favorite by far was the General Dynamics series by Erik Nitsche. My poor bf was drooling over all of these, I wanted so badly to make $1800 appear out of thin air, but alas, all my wishful thinking was for naught.

If you are in New York or San Francisco, the fair is coming your way this fall, don't miss it!

And now, a PSA about exercise...

I had a terrible yesterday. I was woken up with a frustrating phone call. It was nothing earth shattering-but stressful, nonetheless. I got dressed and went to the gym. While there, I chatted with some of my gym buddies and we discussed races we've done/are gonna do, talked about mundane everyday things, went into fitness class, got our butts kicked at said fitness class and then I went to the locker room to change. By the time I got to the locker room, I was smiling and looking forward to the day. Isn't it amazing what exercise can do? I forgot all about my problems. Plus, I used my frustration as a means to burn more calories. I am no Jillian Michaels, far from it, but to any of you who happen to read this here's some words of advice:

Having a tough day? Go for a run, jog, walk, bike ride-any sort of physical activity. It will do wonders. It did for me.

That is all. xo
