Soon


That's the East River above, a place we frequent on the weekends. In the coming weeks and months, it will completely change from this blustery, frigid landscape to a tree lined boulevard fragrant with the heavy river scent and the blossoms of the nearby park. Soon. SOON.

It seems impossible, improbable sometimes, this strange and cool life we live.

Interior design

Did you know that Jonathan Adler is doing a line with JCPenney? It's true. Jessica at How About Orange told me so!

I'm still trying to decide what art to put on my wall and perhaps making a print of my favorite instagram shots on wood with the awesome art service InstaThis would be the way to go?

JCrew + interior design? Could there be a better combo? Erin Gates at Elements of Style did a really fun mashup of beautiful rooms and picks from the new JCrew spring lineup.

Food

Fish sauce. I have to get my hands on some. And now Diane and Todd of White on Rice tell me that it works on brussels sprouts too? I'm sold.

Another wonderful use for cauliflower in this yellow lentil cauliflower curry from A Pinch of Yum. Wonder how it would look with the glorious green cauliflower I've got hanging out in my fridge?

Check out these pretty lemon rosemary scones from The Pioneer Woman. At first, I was getting all stressed because I don't have a triangle scone cutter but then I saw that Ree suggests using a pizza cutter to just cut out the triangles...how cool is that?

Fish tacos are amazing little beasts - and these Mumbai fish fry tacos from Cook Republic sound like a different take on one of my favorite meals.

  1. Hey Dervla! I came across a DIY on Pinterest that is very similar to what InstaThis does. It looks really easy with great results. I'd love to try it sometime when I don't have my hands full!
