i mean BIG TIME rug crush… enough to justify all caps. in a post several months back, i moaned and groaned how after being in a new apartment for almost two years, we still had no rugs. except bathmats, which don’t count. truth is, i’m very picky about rugs and would rather have a naked floor than something that’s just… meh. enter my favorite store in the world, tiina the store, with all it’s amazing […]

sesame noodles…. ever since realizing that i can totally make these at home, they’ve become a bit of a problem. a little bit healthy and a little bit not, i want them at almost every meal. this dish has everything – great texture, great flavor….they’re irresistible to me. now, for you by-the-book types, i know my version is kind of japanese and maybe kind of thai, and kind of not really authentic at all. but this […]

i love these food photographs by myan soffia – they’re really cheering me up on such a dreary, rainy, NYC friday. so are her gorgeous shots of Los Angeles and the nature surrounding the city. (all available in her online shop, sixth & main). some other friday favorites…things to see, eat, dream about: this reminds me of elephant ears and carnivals… i’m not really one to enter a lot of sweepstakes, but this one from west elm […]
