and I’m back…

It’s been quite some time since I had a chance to update second story view. When I started this blog I made an earnest effort to update daily – and this lasted months! I recently got a brand new job (that I absolutely adore!) which is why I have been absent as of late… It has been a whirlwind of inspiration and hard work; I couldn’t be happier.

However – I am here to announce that I am making the commitment to update daily once again. I hope this excites you, because it certainly excites me! See you all tomorrow!

Christoph Niemann is an amazing illustrator whose works have appeared on the covers of The New Yorker, Wired, The New York Times Magazine and American Illustration.

Browsing lovely spring lookbooks is one of those things that keeps me going during the cold of winter. I just finished looking through Duskin’s collection and am loving the modern romantic, feminine and whimsical pieces…
