Summer Gingham

What a serious heatwave we’ve been having lately… I hope you’ve been staying cool, hydrated, and safe from heatstroke. Lately I’ve been drinking an extra glass of water every day. I cut back on coffee, too, but there’s only so much you can do before a portable fan and bulk supply of mini Evian spray bottles start sounding like good idea.

Kitchen Sink Ramen

Perfect for a cold snap like we’ve been experiencing in the Northeast. Made with a ramen packet and some leftovers from the refrigerator. In the true spirit of kitchen sink recipes, I failed to get a clean photo of this dish and my computer and headphones are visible at the top. I was too hungry to stage a good food photo!

GEORGINE Fall 2016

Red Parka | GEORGINE Fall 2016

Eva NYC Hair Care

eva nyc hair products

Eva NYC kindly sent me a selection of products from their hair care line and over the past few months I’ve chronicled my favorite Eva NYC-assisted hairstyles.  There are two stand-out products that I liked best.

The first product is the Speed It Up Blow-Dry Spray (6oz, $24), which just works. The first time I used it, I couldn’t believe how fast my hair dried. I like use about 3-5 sprays on freshly washed hair, then comb through to distribute the product. Then five minutes with a hair dryer produces sleek, dry hair. It’s basically a miracle product.
