Karina Chronicles

Meet Your Maker: June Edition

Each month, we ask our intrepid founder and creative director what she’s currently obsessed with. Here’s what Karina is loving on for June!

1. Francis Ha  
This  is a hilarious, witty movie I suggest seeing!  Greta Gerwig’s performance was amazing!

2.  Arugula 
For the first time in a long time, I planted seeds.  There’s a small garden behind my place in Brooklyn and this past week my arugula was tall enough to eat.  The salad included arugula (grown from seed with only water, soil, sun, and love) with shaved parmesan, pears, and walnuts – sprinkled lightly with balsamic and olive oil. Yum!

3. Spanish 
Normally you hear about what’s up with me in the past month; but this is something I am looking forward to this week
  I’m starting a 12 week intensive Spanish class !  it’s been on my bucket list for a while and decided to sign up this summer.  “¡Deséeme suerte!”


4. Cicadas 
Hail to the cicadas!   The cicadas are back and the sound they
 create is eerie and quite loud. If you think about the number (millions) that crawl out every 17 years to mate, well,  it’s something out of a sci-fi horror movie!  I snapped this pic of an unusual and auspicious albino one.

5. Country Living
The Country Living Fair was held in Rhinebeck, NY and I was thrilled to attend.  Artisans from around the world to chat and view their goods.  I was in heaven! Look out for all the pics and Frockstars I met on my visit!
