Jim’s Pancakes

Back in October, I did a post on Bento for Kidlet, but now I think I may have found something a little bit cuter. Jim likes to make pancakes for his daughter Allie and these are not just ordinary pancakes. They are awesome.

Allie is one lucky girl.

Five Things I know about style:

Zooey Deschanel has an effortless sense of style. She is the epitome of class and grace. This morning I read an article entitled Five Things I Know About Style: In fact it was so great that I wanted to create my own for some readers. Here is her version and below is mine.

  • When you get dressed in the morning, you have to go into your day w/ assertion. If it doesn’t work out, you’re free to change into a second outfit. If you want to wear your sweats and a sweatshirt that’s perfectly fine too, but Wear it with confidence. Wear it like you mean it and that every piece that you put on that day was on purpose.
  • Before I make a purchase, I have to be 100% sure that this is the right decision. Is it worth the price? How many times will I wear it? How long will this piece last me? How many outfits can I wear it with? If you can’t think of at least three then you shouldn’t buy it. Get the most wear from it. Just because the price is higher doesn’t mean it is always the best find.
  • Examine your clothing. I hate coming home with a purchase only to find that there’s a hole in the back of the shirt or a button falling off. If you can’t fix it yourself, don’t buy it. It’s not worth it. Also, buy something that fits you at that time. You should not buy goal-oriented clothing thinking that you will fit into it eventually or over time. That just prolongs the time that you will actually get to wear it.
  • Simplicity is key. Accessories are sometimes used to enhance an outfit, but that doesn’t mean you should go overboard with it. Accessories can also cheapen an outfit. Less is more. Never wear earrings with a necklace and a bracelet. At most, choose two. Less is more.
  • Let yourself become inspired by runway looks, but do not let it take over your entire wardrobe. Trends will come and go and you are asking for a lifetime of debt if you try to keep up w/ it. Think smart when purchasing anything trendy. You almost have to make a promise to yourself that you will wear it even when it goes out of style.

Last tips:

Develop your own style. Wear what is comfortable and what makes you feel comfortable. Don’t dress for anyone else – not for a girl and not for a boy.

Also this is either a warning or a notice: Layering is good. It keeps you warm in the fall and the winter, but why do women insist on wearing spaghetti strap tank tops with racer back tank tops. Don’t show your bra straps with a  racer back tank top. These are undergarments for a reason. Put it away, hide it with a cardigan and don’t expose them to the world.

June Bug

Such a fitting name for a shoe isn’t it? Luckily, this one came right in time for my summer to start.

I never get mail at school. When I do, it’s a complete surprise because I really am not expecting it from anyone. This past Thursday afternoon, I decided to check only to find a bulging package that was stuffed into my box.

a) Evaluate the package – consider what it might be?

b) Find the address

c) …Teen Vogue is it really you?!

I haven’t worked with Teen Vogue in several years so I was kind of confused as to what they were sending me. Inside this white package was a pair of Sanuk shoes (the exact ones above!) Not being familiar with this brand, I decided to Google them. The drawstring bag that it came in told me that the shoes were part shoe and part sandal. They kept away odors and had a soft sole. You could also use the bag to put your banana peel in it for compost? Good, they’re going green. The shoes could also be purchased online for $45.

I decided to test drive the shoes for the evening. Turns out they’re the most comfortable pair of shoes I own! I like the dark shade especially since I don’t have any in that color except for boots. It is both casual and classic. I’ve been wearing my Mom’s Keds around a lot so it’s nice to have a new alternative to wear w/ my jeans, my skirts, and maybe some of my summer dresses.

Sanuk – I have no idea if you were asking for free promotion out of this, but you just got it!

This is it

A constant state of numbness and a cycle of delirium.

How did we get to this place…

Dear Girls Above Me

When you move into your own place for the first time, you feel like you have finally grasped a sense of independence. You get your own personal space and you feel like you can be alone. This is only true if you do not have neighbors. My favorite neighbors from Hawaii just moved out this week unfortunately. Not everyone can be as lucky as me though. Especially not this guy who created “Dear Girls Above Me” which basically hates his neighbors’ annoying habits.

Komforte Chockolates

Last weekend a friend gave me a bite of his new concoction: cheddar cheese melted on top of an apple pie a la mode. It tasted as bad as it really sounded. I’ve learned that not to all food can be combined. However, Seattle’s based Komforte Chockolates (pronounced comfort chocolates) have tried to do just that. Their new line combines the taste of chocolate with tortilla lime and salt, french toast, and ramen noodles. This makes me nervous.

Keeping Times Square Cool

Molly Dilworth’s latest canvas? Why it’s New York’s Times Square. Molly has been selected to help in promoting the campaign, Green Light For Midtown, which will help promote the city’s movement to improve mobility. Broadway in Time’s Square and Herald Square are the busiest in the city, but yesterday all traffic was shut down in this area so that pedestrians could enjoy their new makeover.

The concept, “Cool Water, Hot Island” spans about five blocks into Broadway that is set to mirror a river-like mirage. Dilworth will receive $15,000 for beating out 150 other submissions. Molly will also gets 18 months of display time beginning July.
