The Better Midnight Breakfast

November 21, 2011

Usually I never resort to a batter mix for anything. I’m a firm believer that there is no food that tastes better from a box than it does freshly made with at home ingredients. However, when you and your friends get a hankering for crepes at 11:45p.m., all reservations about powder mix gets tossed out the window.

The Better Artillery

November 17, 2011

These right here are the perfect example of why I consider myself to be the better Martha. Yes Miss Stewart can cook, clean, and iron perfectly, but I don’t recall her ever sashaying around the farmers market in shoes like these. Keds and capris are always appropriate, but sometimes it’s fun to spice things up. I have been told the shoes pictured below resembles weaponry more than it does footwear.

The Better Infinity Scarf

November 12, 2011

To all you east coasters and cold climate creatures, I salute you. Your ability to deal with frozen toes astounds me. It’s a freezing 59 degrees today in Los Angeles and I’m ready to give up all activities for the sake of staying under my down comforter. I’m only able to go out because this weather lends itself to a certain kind of attire—coats, boots, and gloves! While this may seem like old potatoes to some of you, this is a rare experience for me.  I even got to break out the infinity scarf my sister crocheted for me!
Oh how my neck is toasty warm! The infinity scarf is much more practical than a normal scarf. As I run through the rain to get to my car, I don’t have to worry about it being swept away by an angry gust of wind.
