wear: Drooling All Over the Overalls Trend

I will never forget the laughter and the general look of confusion from people who couldn’t understand why I never got rid of my Levi Strauss overalls from the 90s. “No one will wear overalls again” they said. My simple response? “Give it time”. Fast forward to 2014, and it’s the hottest trend of the summer. … Continue reading

drink: Matcha Green Tea Latte

I’ve known about the magical powers of matcha green tea: that it can used in ice cream, muffins, and crepe cakes, but I have never actually used it for its initial use: tea. This weekend was the first time I made this type of latte and it was just as delicious as I thought it … Continue reading

drink: Elderflower Lemonade

When I was shopping at my local Whole Foods Market the other day,a bottle of Belvoir Elderflower Lemonade caught my eye. The vase-like bottle shape, the vintage, romantic label, and the idea of a flower-based lemonade was something I could not ignore, so I bought a bottle and I had no regrets. The extremely light … Continue reading

drink: Pimm’s Cup

Yesterday morning, I woke to the horrible news delivered by Punxsutawney Phil that there would be six more weeks of winter. Six more weeks of icy sidewalks, blistering winds, and winter storms named after popular children’s names of years past. With that being said, I have never been more prepared for this weather to end. One … Continue reading

They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure and that saying rings true in the case of Glass Beach. As we anxiously await the autumn’s full effects to arrive, the beach is one of the last places that still scream summer.

drink: Rhubarb Lemonade

Rhubarb is an interesting vegetable that until recently, I only associated with strawberry pie. It wasn’t until this week that I knew that it could be used in several inventive ways. Since it’s summer and the unofficial drink of the season is lemonade, it is perfect to feature this suggestion to make rhubarb lemonade. What … Continue reading

live: Porch Swingin’

I have been to my brother’s house that he purchased over 5 years ago and this weekend was the first time I noticed that he had a porch swing. His entire backyard has been covered with fallen tree branches and has been poorly utilized. How  can you go through 5 lazy, hazy summers with hanging … Continue reading

eat: Lobster Roll

For some reason, I have been craving the pairing of white wine (preferably a Riesling or Moscato) with a lobster roll. It may not be officially summer according to my calendar, but it surely feels like it and nothing says summer near the bay than lobster. According to news reports, the price of lobster has … Continue reading

drink: Pumpkin Gingerbread Smoothie

I’m confused by the weather on the East Coast. One day it’s cold and rainy, the next day it’s sunny and warm. Then you blink and it starts to snow. It makes me confused about food and drink. Is it OK to drink a smoothie in 30 degree weather? It is too warm for a … Continue reading

Drink: Sparkling White Peach Sangria

Back when I was in college, anyone who was anyone ordered a carafe of sangria outside at the tables of Collegetown Bagels. It was basically a sign of social status: you had enough friends to fill a table, you were done with classes for the day, and you were old enough to drink (or at … Continue reading
