Winter is regretfully in full force, there are freak snow storms in Las Vegas, I'm wearing three pairs of socks but, at least there are hearty vegetables, pomergrantes and mandarain oranges to enjoy. Eating fruits and veggies that are in season are a great way lower that grocery bill. I complied a list of them for the long months of winter. Leek, cabbage and sauteed mushroom soup with a side of sweet potato fries? Followed by a dessert of red wine poached pear? Winter is already starting to sound less dreadful.


Drape Coat

Finally, the semester is winding down, I finished my last exam today and my winter coat is done! My finished project is above, I'm really happy with the result! It looks just like my drawings. Right now, I'm sipping on a Kir Royale and getting ready to go out, the first time in like 5 years, lol! After doing this photoshoot for the coat, I'm seriously considering a career in styling, it is so much fun and I really enjoy being on the site of photoshoots. I guess some freelancing and non-paid work is in order, especially now that I'm continuously unemployed and free from school.

P.s. Go see Milk with Sean Penn, the cast is freaking adorable and the story is so inspiring and relevant.


Elegance is Refusal

but, don't refuse to watch this silent video about Coco Chanel by Aunt Karla. This is just a teaser, the actual video is about 10 minutes.


Markus, only you and him could pull of a look like this.

Hey goodlooking.

A Good Night

Me and my roommates finished an exams today, still one more to go. So, we decided to have a day of rest and feasting. For dinner I made a Sichuan Eggplant dish with rice (sorry, too hungry to take pictures), speaking of which, can we go to Sichuan? After, we watched some Nigella Lawson videos on Youtube, she is definitely my favourite, so sexy and causal. We were inspired by her Choco-pot recipe and since we had all the ingredients on hand, we decided to give it a try accompanied with our favourite "Fried" Bananas.
4 - 6servings
Butter for ramekins
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1. Place baking sheet in an oven preheated to 400°F/200°C. Butter four ramekins and set aside.
2. Using a double boiler, melt together chocolate and the butter. Set aside to cool.
3. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar and flour. Add cooled chocolate mixture, and mix until blended.
4. Divide mixture evenly among ramekins and place on baking sheet. Bake until tops are shiny and cracked and chocolate beneath is hot and gooey, about 20 minutes.
"Fried" Bananas are super easy, easier to make than deep-fried restaurant versions and just as yummy. My roommate Esther is the one who came up with this delicious, fast everyday treat.
Using one banana per person, since it lengthwise and then cut it into 4 peices. Oil the pan with butter (this is where the flavour comes from, so don't skimp), and when it reaches high heat throw the bananas in. Constantly turn the bananas, so they dont burn, ready when soft and golden brown. Serve with chocolate sauce (we just used the batter from Choco-pot) or honey!


I say Luke, you say Cole. Luke! Cole! Luke! Cole!

I have spent the last several weeks creeping this video. Something about these two together. So boyish and playful. Ps. Luke is engaged to Kelly Osborne...

This boy is an angel. Combing my love for Bob Dylan and homeless people.


Your Flesh Is Sweet To Me

The fierceness that is Grace Jones takes photobooth to a whole new level with her new video for Corporate Cannibal.

Seriously Cool Hats

This Jessica Rabbitesque one is probably my favourite.
