Buildings and Bridesmaids

You know it's a beautiful day when something like this magically occurs while you're waiting for your bus...

sidenote: I absolutely love these navy blue bridesmaid dresses, don't you?

Wild Thing

What I love second to food is watching movies. And there is never anything that satiates a movie junkie's palette more than watching previews. I can't get enough of them, mostly because they are like crack (in a very PG way).

TODAY: Friday, October 16th is the release date for "Where the Wild Things Are" and NPR had a wonderful episode this afternoon previewing the film and its ability to mesmerize the young and allow the older crowd to shed some long-withheld tears.

For your viewing pleasure, all things wild...

**Look for a review of this movie (after I see it tonight!!) on my new blog that I am co-authoring: Critique-ly Acclaimed!

shopping around the globe

"Man Shops Globe" is a new show on the Sundance Channel that follows Anthropologie's "personal shopper" Keith Johnson. Basically, this guy gets to explore country after country in order to find all the beautiful prints that are then mass-produced for the store's worldly look. I haven't had the chance to see the show itself (the downside to not owning a television), but the reviews are all positive.

However, if you're like myself and without a cable outlet, you should stop on over to Anthropologie yourself and spend an hour (or so) browsing through their goods. If you don't have the money to spend there, another predicament I currently find myself in, then do as I do and at least treat yourself to some eye candy.

D.C. Bike Chic

Last weekend, we went into DC to see the film, "Amreeka," which is based on the true story of a Palestinian family moving to America. (Very good! I highly recommend it.) After seeing the movie, we strolled around Metro Center a bit and I caught sight of these bicycles! I couldn't help myself from snapping some pictures...

Camera Out of Order!

Sorry posts have been few and far between as of late. My camera doesn't seem to want to cooperate with my computer, so my most recent photos that I've been dying to share are incognito at the moment.

Stay tuned! (also, if anybody is familiar with unusual problems betwixt a macbook and a canon powershot A510, let me know! Thanks!)

West Coast (gluten-free!) Love Revisited

After a long absence from this blog, I am returning at the pleasant surprise of a new follower! With a renewed hope that word will continue to spread, I am taking advantage of my newfound freedom as a recent college graduate to bring back a bit o' beauty.

I began following this delicious blog, Tartlette, after a friend of mine turned me on to baking. Now that my addiction has gotten the best of me and my wallet, I have discovered that cookbooks are a thing of the past and food websites are the poor man's solution to finding delicious, easy-to-follow recipes without spending a penny! Ideally, I would save the money that I don't spend on cookbooks and put it towards more useful things, like rent. However, it always seems to just end up funding my ever-expanding grocery list these days...

Her newest posts refer to San Francisco, the city I simply cannot get enough of ever since I spent this past summer biking across the country from Baltimore, MD to San Fran, CA. The journey was wonderfully epic, to say the least! (You can actually check out my other blog, Have Bicycle, Will Travel, if you want to catch a glimpse of my experiences on the road, along with other bicycle/travel related tid-bits.) One of my teammates was allergic to gluten, so it became a bit of a struggle for her when we were stuck in the middle of nowhere with only some granola bars to keep us company. The recipe on this website is GLUTEN-FREE, though! Another plus.

To sum it up, her combination of delectable desserts and and an even more delectable city is irresistible. I have yet to try the recipe, but as soon as I do, look out for a review.
