This is what over a decade of interloping looks like #Vegas #nuptials #latergram (at Las Vegas, Nevada)
Finally catching up on what really matters… #vaycay #vogue #lenadunham (at West Hollywood)
Rose is getting married and all I can think about is the girl who sat in the hallway, cross-legged on the laminate floor, smiling. The girl who slept, for a year, under a nine foot poster of Johnny Depp at the piano. The girl I attached myself to so unabashedly that first year (and others) and who was sweet enough to oblige.
Rose is getting married. And, so, I give you the Save-The-Date Cake.
This was my interpretation of the Raw Cashew Dream Cake from My New Roots. This blushing beauty is more than just a pretty face. There’s no cooking/baking required, it’s also raw, vegan & gluten free (so no one has an excuse not to indulge!) Best of all, it holds up great in the freezer for coffee breaks and midnight snacks later on.
So here’s to Rose, with love, on this rosy occasion.
The Kingdom of #Sweden where even government propaganda is ethically and aesthetically superior
The year everyone got granola, even baby Tallulah Bee.
I’m trying to have a better outlook on winter this year but am really feeling the daylight robbery pinch since the sun is setting before 5 these days. Missing these sunsets we were so spoiled with two weeks ago.
I am so smitten with Puerto Rico. And, I must admit, I was a bit taken by surprise. We almost skipped San Juan entirely because I was picturing a lot of Burger Kings and tourists but thankfully we didn’t because I was happily proven wrong. Old San Juan is amazing. We found the weekly farmer’s market completely by accident and stayed for hours. Yes, eventually I had to be forcibly removed from the premise.
There was sopa de calabazo, local coffee, homemade bread, and Argentine selling Peruvian dishes. I finally landed on a juicy Collard wrap that I promptly got all over my shirt and wore around, quite proudly, for the rest of the day.
What struck me most was how kind everyone was. They brought us right into the fold (and even shared their banana bread.) We chatted with tons of people, took a biodiversity survey for a grad student doing research and I even found some Swedes! Most of the market was closing on the early side to go to the birthday party of a little girl whose mom ran the bread stand. It was adorable.
There was such a palpable sense of community there that you definitely don’t find at the Union Square farmer’s market of even some of the smaller ones here in New York. It was such a treat.
