Kitchen Sink Ramen

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

The GEORGINE Fall 2016 collection was influenced by fairy tales and the struggle between good and evil. Can you see it? There were plenty of playful looks, but my favorites were the darker, edgier ones. And if fur’s your thing, it was plush and gorgeous.

Look one was a fantastic opener. It’s a risk to do a red parka in a high-sheen fabric (I believe it’s silk satin), and this one was done so flawlessly. I never knew I wanted a red parka before.

Winter Details

I got this funny faux-fur charm as a Christmas gift and it’s been coming with me everywhere. It also made me remember how much I like tying square scarves onto my bags, so I brought a few of them out of storage.

The weather’s been so warm lately that I’ve decided to stop purchasing winter clothing for the rest of the season. I’m trying to be more mindful about the purchases I make this year, so I started a list of what I’m looking for.

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.

Good Tidings

When current events turn sad, I often shutter the blog for a while. Social media, too. I don’t like to say that I retreat from the world, but in many ways I do. I like to press pause for a while and spend a lot of time thinking. I like to ponder apocalypse planning (although this could also be caused by excessive episodes of The Walking Dead and Homeland).

If you celebrated Thanksgiving last week, I hope it was everything you wished for.

Fall Flower Dress

I bought this dress at the height of summer, but with long sleeves it was a definite no-go until the days became cooler. I could see it possibly being an okay winter dress, too, but we’ll see.

Kim took these photos for me ages ago. I did mean to post them in September as sort of an early fall look, but it turns out that we’re well into fall and still having some late summer weather.

Why I Take Photos

Flipping through some old photos from this year. I swear I’d forget my whole life if not for the photos I take…
