Feet Beat

August 23, 2012


earlier this year, i decided to start a little project similar to a 365 photo project with photos just looking down at my feet. i thought it would be a fun and easy way to document a 365 project - all from the iphone. the project was short lived but i've been inspired by satsuki's feet beat pinterest board to maybe start it up again.

Phin and Phebes

August 21, 2012


i've been craving a lot of ice cream lately, probably due to the fact that we've had an incredible hot couple of weeks in socal. (i know i'm from atlanta, and it's hot and humid there but seriously i've become weak sauce!) i stumbled upon phin and phebes ice cream and love their fun packaging designed by jefferson cheng. i really want to try some, specifically the vietnamese ice coffee one. i'm not much of a coffee drinker but i am completely addicted to vitenamese ice coffee sad news for me though, they only carry phin and phebes in and around nyc.

if you follow me on instagram or twitter you will know that i had quite a food adventure in wine country a few weeks ago. one of my favorite dishes from the weekend (besides everything we had a the french laundry) was the grilled frog's leap peaches with ricotta, basil and honey from farmstead. the dish was full of surprising flavors that i won't forget.

im sad that farmstead isn't just down the street, as i'd probably be a frequent diner. i loved the farm to table food and the space is beautiful and very inviting. they have a beautiful outdoor space and you can book a special event there too. if you're ever in the area be sure to check it out!
