Oh hi there!
Allow me to preface this post by asking, how do you feel about my new layout? I happen to think it’s pretty dope, but I would, wouldn’t I, since it’s my blog…
Anyways, here are some things that I’m really fond of as of late:
- Lucky Peach (Follow the link to purchase your copy)
Momofuku’s chef-owner David Chang, writer Peter Meehan and Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations‘ production team are behind this brand-new, quarterly food journal. So far I’m still on Issue One, ‘The Ramen Issue’, but I can already tell that this publication is, though painfully hipster, genius. It’s full of great stories and recipes from culinary big shots, like Wylie Dufresne for one. There are no annoying advertisements, just excellent writing and beautiful illustrations.
I saw this movie when it first came out in theaters about a month ago and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It’s about an American boy (Anton Yelchin) and an English girl (Felicity Jones) who fall in love during their last year at a California university. They are forced to part due to visa issues, and their long-distance relationship of several years ensues. I know you’re thinking that this is just another teenage tear-jerker but it is so not. Their relationship is portrayed very realistically and the ending was, to me, surprising. And if the plot fails to impress you, the sheer cuteness of Yelchin and Jones – together and separately – is sure to keep your attention. Watch the trailer!
- Biotin aka Hair Skin and Nails Vitamins
A few months ago, my hair began to fall out like mad and my hair stylist suggested I start taking these vitamins (about $4 at Duane Reade) to make it stop. Sure enough, after about a week of taking these, it stopped. My nails got stronger, too. And I’m not sure what it’s supposed to do for my skin but as far as I can tell, nothing’s changed. Maybe what’s happening is the classic placebo effect and there’s no way of knowing for sure. Either way, if you’re having problems with hair or nails, I highly suggest this as a treatment option.
And what are you currently obsessing over?
