Wake Up, it’s the First of the Month….

A blogger I follow recently posted a photo from her honeymoon in Italy where she is wearing workout gear and mentioned using wine bottles for weights, which you know I loved. Her body was RIDICULOUS, but in a normal girl, “I have a job and a blog and just planned a wedding” way. No crazy…

French Me

Remember that time I had a blog… I just did too! Hi, guys! It’s been a crazy month! Moving in with the chap and the beast, traveling to the MIA, dealing with office renovations, and of course Bastille Day! That’s right, Bastille Day is a favourite holiday, but let’s face it, all holidays are favourite…

Half birthdays = half cake. Where was this tonight??

Standing (Ovation) Rib Roast

The chap’s recent dinner party coupled with the insane stretch of time on my hands in between gigs has me inspired to do about not much else other than cook and bake. The original plan was to get super in shape with my three weeks off or convince my friends or chap that taking a…

Dîner en Party

I always wish I lived in a city that hosted a  ‘dîner en blanc’. Or really that I was in Paris with a handful of good friends for one of theirs. Actually, maybe I’ll go register for the DC one right this minute… Anywho….last weekend the chap hosted his own dinner party. It was a…

Bienvenido a Miami

Newsflash! I spent a long weekend in Miami. It was really quite fun and I love my friends. I met a few new people, learned much about camel farms, received a green card marriage proposal, Shazaamed the shit out of bars, made little progress on a tan, saw that the lizards had relocated, and enjoyed…

Slutty Supper

Recipe test drives of late: Slutty Zoodles and a pear and almond custard tart (because the carbs have to go somewhere). Slutty Zoodles are a creation inspired from a favorite Miami establishment who I’m sure named their similar dish something much classier. I bought a zoodle maker and got creative. A zoodle maker (my name)…

Happy New Year's Eve!

I’ve always had a love affair with New Year’s Eve, the promise of a fresh start, and of course, champagne! Hope it’s everyone’s best yet! I’ll catch you up on some adventures tomorrow! xx -L

The Hiatus

I dropped the first starfish I found and watched in horror as it was torn apart by fish. It limped across the bottom of the ocean, one leg on a stump of a body, greatly mamed, but somehow alive and kicking. All I wanted was to see a starfish on holiday and I got exactly…

Take It Off!

17 Days of no carbs, no sugar, no alcohol. Boring, but after the beau’s parents had massive success on this fad diet, we thought we’d give it a whirl to prep for our Caribbean getaway in a few weeks. The first week I was down 6.5 pounds! The beau was down 10! Elation ensued as…

Read this: The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.

The debut novel of Adell Waldman is one of those books that not only makes you want to write, but convinces you that you can…or that you at least have a story. Nathaniel P is a modern Everyman. He’s a slightly above average guy that you’ll date for awhile, but ultimately won’t marry because he’s…
