She’s Gonna Blow…

Not often, but occasionally, I wonder about starting my life over at 30. Watching all my friends find love, get married, have kids, sling a company, sometimes I feel like I’m living my younger years now and spinning my wheels a bit. I’m happy for them, but sometimes I just feel like I should be…

Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

What Came First? The Eggplant or the Emoji? 🍆

This weekend I hosted company who freakin’ loves some eggplant – the food not the emoji. So, I found the most wonderful looking recipe I could find and readied myself to making a delicious main dish for Saturday night dinner. Naturally, I leaned on Ina Garten’s Eggplant Gratin. Now Ina’s recipes are so foolproof that…

Pretty Ish

Hey alls. So, I’ve been on a sort of natural beauty kick lately, trying to buy better beauty products where I can. This is an expensive quest of trial and error. Do not try this at home. Let me repeat, do not try this at home. My skin has also been like, “bish, stop changing…

EAST Miami

Welcome to the East…. said in the tune of the old Wyclef song of the same name. With Hurricane Irma looming on the horizon, it’s a little unreal to think back through my mostly sunny weekend in Miami. Having moved away from SoFL a few years ago, when I return to see friends, I pretty…

Fresh Carbs and Post Updates

Thought I'd give you all an update on my situation with the Unscripted Hotel in Durham. I received the nicest email from the hotel manager. He apologised profusely, offered a refund of the stay, and a complimentary next stay. So generous! I look forward to trying to property again and updating my review. He even…

Ex Anniversaries and Steak Salad Nicoise

Last week would have been my twelfth wedding anniversary and I never really know what to do with that day any more. I look forward to the next great relationship so that I don’t feel the need to mark it any longer, but for now, we persist. The last few years I’ve spent it as…

Li’l (Fort) Wayne

Last week I embarked on a tour de Mid-West, visiting family in Fort Wayne, aka Li’l Wayne, aka Fort Wheezy, aka Fort Wheezy F. Baby, followed by a weekend in Columbus for the wedding of one of my nearest and dearest. Not having been back to either spot in nearly two years, I’d forgotten how…

Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Le Bon Marche, Tres Rive Gauche

If you’re like me and aren’t able to make a jaunt to Paris this summer, at least you can shop like you did! Today, Parisian staple, Le Bon Marche launched their online site, 24 Sevres. The website is just as gorgeous as you’d imagine, although it lacks the badass food hall. Oh well, some things…

Kimpton Seafire Digs

The theme of this blog is about to be romantic shit I planned that didn’t go as planned. 😉 Fresh off of my Zero George cooking class, I was headed into the dope beach vaca that the Gent and I had planned since January. What I didn’t plan on was taking it alone. <Eye roll…

Zero George Cooking Class

Because I’m romantic AF, I booked the for Gent and me, “the best new cooking class” in the world. He got real sick so I did what any classy broad would do and begged for a store credit.  One or my bff and lady loves, joined me do an absolutely fantastic evening of cheese balloons…
