This is one of the first Persian dishes I learned to cook. After tasting the tangy-ness of the barberries I decided that I needed to make, and re-make this dish till I found other spices and aromas that worked to make it even more amazing.

Every time I wear this hat, people keep asking me if I just got back from a Thai vacation. Although I sincerely wish this was the truth, the hat’s origin is actually somewhere less exotic: my local Urban Outfitters store. I guess I’m just going to have to go on a vacation to Phuket. This way next time someone asks me, I can truthfully say that I did just get back from Thailand.
Outfit Combo: hat from t-shirt Urban Outfitters, jeans from Uniqlo, shirt from Uniqlo, sunglasses from Emporio Armani, boots from Dolce Vita, skull necklace from Brandi Melville, bag from Botkier.
Punk is BACK!

I was on a business trip last week and had to leave Mimi behind for the whole week. Poor thing was so attention-starved that she kept following me around all Sunday afternoon. I was trying to think of a nail design to do and immediately knew it had to be kitty related.
ET VOILA, here it is! As if it wasn’t already obvious enough that I’m the crazy cat lady, now you can tell from my nails too.

Believe it or not, in the six months that I’ve lived in New York, I never once crossed the Brooklyn Bridge on foot. So last Sunday, I talked my hubby into going for a romantic afternoon stroll down the bridge. Unfortunately, about elevety bajillion tourist had the same idea as me, so the walk wasn’t quite what I had pictured in my mind.
It’s all good though, since we made up for it by walking to Little Italy and having a romantic dinner afterwards. I did also try to talk him into having spaghetti kiss à la Lady and the Tramp, but I wasn’t so successful at that…

I was looking for a spring nail design to do and knew I wanted something ‘green’, but I wasn’t quite ready for the flower fields that spring is usually connected to. While browsing the net, I had seen an ombre nail design in which the effect was accomplished using a sponge. I had decided to try this out using neon green and silver polish for an edgy spring nail design.
It looks complicated, but it’s surprisingly not hard to do. Read on to find out how!2 Comments
