Archives for the month of: July, 2011

are you?

I’ve got a pit in stomach & knot in my throat… Waiting for the bus to come & clear out the office. THE END

Anyway, I don’t know why this is the song association of the day but it is.

I’ll get back in gear, maybe tomorrow, most likely next week.  So don’t leave me… I’ll have ice cream making updates, doggy treat baking adventures, photos of shoes I can’t afford, links to published pieces and more!


“There’s something abou you girl, and it’s rather strange” – Chromeo, When the Night Falls ft. Solange.

Fav line! And also funny bc I do sometimes really like Solange & her style, but sometimes I just think “ohh, girl, that’s whack!”. So yea, there’s something about her but there’s something sort of strange too…

This is off last year’s Business Casual but they’re still promoting it with new remixes.



I love Hercules & Love Affair so I’m really enjoying this remix!! It also sort of modernizes it taking out a bit of Chromeo’s new age-y sound.

I like this game… you? Guess whats in the box!

Today was supposed to be an ice cream post but after seeing these yday I decided to share this instead… Also, its apparently national ice cream month so there’ll be plenty of time for that.

Helena Bonham Carter for Marc Jacobs – seriously, what took so long?! Match made in heaven.  His ads are always a little quirky & HBC is the queen o’ that! Probably my favorite Marc Jacobs ads (though I did like Posh in the boxes, too)


This weekend we hosted our 2nd annual Pulled Pork BBQ! It was quite a bit of work to get ready for the bash but well worth it.

Jj ordered 12 lbs of pork butt from The Meat Hook over a week in advance & picked it up Thursday.  I helped him with the dry rub Thursday night…

Some of the dry rub ingredients (I can’t give away all his secrets! he’d kill me…)

We patted down the meat & let it soak in the flavors for a day.

Saturday Jj woke up at 4am to get the grill started… 12 lbs of meat = 12 hrs of cooking time. Love this photo, you can see the sun is barely starting to come up & he looks so tired! This photo is thanks to Eden, who was just getting home as Jj started cooking (I, obviously, was still in bed)

Skip to minute 5 if you don’t have 7 mins to watch it… But you should all have 7 mins to watch this:

Ron Swanson Knows Food

I know this is a “cop out” post but it made me laugh out loud & its better than no post at all!


I wasn’t going to post anything today, mostly because I can’t get myself to hit “Publish” on my outfit post…

But then I came across this new Mumford & Sons track.  It’s not an actual recording, its from a radio show they did, but the quality is surprisingly good.  Classic melancholy Mumford & Sons…

I loved Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit – she was amazing! Then, she kept blowing me away with her fun age-appropriate looks on the red carpet and cute smile – you could see the kid was really enjoying herself.  Now, she’s the face of Miu Miu!

The campaign photos are great , especially the train tracks and pizza ones that keep her looking young. Click through to see the rest.

Loved Elle France’s editorial of Erin Wasson – so laid back & effortless.  Also, perfectly themed for 4th of July week!


More Music Mondays… on Tuesday (bc it feels like Monday, right?).  And in anticipation of the show tomorrow at Williamsburg Waterfront! I’m guessing its gonna be a great show.

This song is truly amazing… no surprise – all of Cudi’s beats are insane.  It’s interesting to me bc the track has such a melancholy feel yet the words are uplifting.
