Hi.

follow along on my misadventures in fashion, cooking, writing and adulthood as I rapidly approach 30.

Five Friday Favorites {Vol. 4}

No. 1: Calorie Counting: Did you know restaurants will now HAVE to start including calorie info on their menus? Personally, I'm a huge fan of this, as knowledge is power and this could definitely lead to many people making healthier choices. Ignorance can no longer be bliss at Sunday brunch, y'all. (But still, enjoy the damn pancakes every now and again!)

No. 2: Caliphate: In my never-ending quest to become more ~Informed~, I start each morning listening to the NY Times' podcast The Daily. Admittedly, not every episode is stimulating, but one special episode left me hooked: It was the first episode of another Times' podcast, Caliphate. In the ten-episode audio documentary series, foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi looks back on her interactions with "Abu Huzayfah,” a former ISIS member now living in Canada who provides an insider's look at the Islamic State. It's equal parts enlightening and alarming, and yet provides some unexpected humor, with Callimachi recalling being fat-shamed by ISIS.

No. 3: Wild Friends' Nut Butter Oats: Easy + Delicious = go-to breakfast on busy mornings. I'm defenseless against almond buttah.  

No. 4: Shawn Mendes: Confession: I have a huge crush on the Canadian cutie. And yes, I googled his age before admitting this. (19, by the way. A fetus!) His new album comes out on May 24 and I have loved all of the singles he's released so far, especially "In My Blood," which is about his struggles with anxiety, proving he may just be the new Justin Timberlake we never knew we were going to need. 

No. 5: Met Gala Hangover: Sigh, is there any better event for #fashionporn than the first Monday in May? My favorites included: Blake LivelySJP, Lily Collins, Chadwick Boseman (My king!), Emilia Clarke and Ashley Olsen, especially her gorgeous headpiece (Sorry, MK!).
