5/30: sashiko, july '10

sashiko, or "little stabs"- this looks like a perfect little summertime hobby. maybe i'll make some cute pillows to go with that perfect striped bedding i see in my dreams.

locks for love, july'10

there are a few ways each of us can help to keep the Gulf oil spill from continuing to spread, however this might be the most interesting. 3 nyc salons are now accepting your (and your pets') helpful hairs. snip snip.

hot fun in the summertime, july'10

aside from yesterday, the weather this summer has been sooo amazing! much better than last year's month-long downpour.

i've spent my sunny days so far eating lobster on a weekly basis, sipping rosé (has anyone else noticed this revival??), taking looong bike rides on my new beauty, tending to my herb babies, lots of bbqs and finally investing in some chaise lounges for the rooftop. maybe just a little more beach time as per the lovelies below and i'll be set.

make: shaved asparagus + lemon ricotta pizza, july '10

it's still hot as jalapeños in new york and the idea of baking makes me uncomfy, but a girl has got to eat. this recipe just shot straight to the top of my list...it's asparagus season and lemon + ricotta sounds like a winning combination. plus it only requires about 20 minutes of actual bake time. stay cool in the kitchen with a cherry mash up.

pretty much all of her recipes make my mouth water.

went: little red lighthouse

6/26: 18 miles from carroll gardens to the little red lighthouse, dinosaur bbq for lunch, blueberry beer and some world cup-watching and then 18 miles home. my boo surprised me with a perfect bottle of white wine with a biciclette on the label to round out a perfect day.

soft pretzel, july'10

not sure how i'd use it, but i do know i need it.
