Fine Dining: Candle 79 in New York, NY

I am vegan, but I am choosy. I’m not one of those folks who will pretend something is delicious just because it’s good for me. I sorta hate those types of vegans. With that being said, I am super excited to tell you lovely foodies about my favorite fine dining restaurant in New York, Candle […]

We find a recipe or two, shop for the ingredients, come back, and cook and drink until my husband decides it’s a safety hazard to have two drunk […]

Chicago’s Sweet Shop: Chocolat Uzma Sharif

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I beg to differ. I’d offer up chocolate from Chocolat Uzma Sharif instead. Ah, blessed chocolate! That delicious confection that is the Achilles heel of my diet (and my scale)! In fact, if given the choice between Johnny Depp (*fangirl swoon*) and chocolate, I’d be hard pressed to choose […]

Morning After Thanksgiving Soup

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and with the biggest meal of the year already planned I’ve already started planning the next one: morning after Thanksgiving soup.

Since I am an indie artist and my life is unstable and chaotic (in a good way), I experience the absolute realest of struggles when it comes to my vegan diet, especially now that I am attempting to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon. Because so much of my life revolves around finding healthy stuff to […]

The Ultimate Adult Rootbeer Float Recipe

There is nothing worse than having someone say “Oh, you’re one of those girls” to you, but when it comes to beer, I am definitely one of those girls. It is not a high maintenance thing (though I have been called that on occasion), I just never developed a taste for beer. Honest to god, I have […]

Egg Porn…Mmm Hello!

My current obsessions: nude lipsticks, ripped tees, this song, talenti gelato, salt water taffy, and last but not least..SEXY LOOKING EGGS. The drippy, runny, oh-so-gooey, bright-as-the-sun yolk does it for me. I know not everybody agrees with me on this–but this is my blog so ha! I am going to gush about my love for […]
