yes, yes. i've been idle for what has seemed like forever. but, the excuse is... I'VE MOVED. this girl is officially a DC resident and it's been a crazy transition, one that's not quite complete yet. it's great, and such a change and it probably won't really feel like home for a while but i love it and always knew i would end up living here after college. okay.
back to normal business!
i admit. i follow a plethora of food blogs. and would you believe their highest criteria to sit well with me is the photography? it's a magical thing. photographs can make me crave food that i hate. crazy.
my most-liked of the moment (and newest addition to my blogroll) is the kitchy kitchen. not only does miss claire thomas feature gorgeous photos of delicious treats and dishes, but there are videos! yes, inspiring, creative, well-made, videos -- to some of my favorite recipes blogged. it's a small gesture that matters a great deal to me. total motivation to actually see a short and sweet step-by-step 1-minute clip of how i can go about recreating a recipe. you will love this food blog, i promise.

Light Outside

Wakey!Wakey! - Light Outside from VsTheBrain on Vimeo.

this week's song is not just the song. i first heard light outside by wakey!wakey! when watching this video by vs the brain featuring andrew and carissa gallo. how can you not love them? and this video is just too dreamy.

Pizza Weekend

spent some much needed time downtown this weekend after a strange and looong week at work. i didn't quite make it to eastern market like i'd planned so i've gotta try back in the next few weekends. i did, however, make it to we, the pizza, a spot that anyone in the area MUST go to for their homemade sodas. good news is, my love for the city is coming back.

i hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as i.
not really ready for the work week to start back up.

Music / 02

by now, you've all heard the music of lana del rey, who's totally making her big moves right now in the music biz. for most people, you love her or you hate her-- i chose to love! it's something different: a little old school, a little dark, nothing like i've really heard before. there's some dubstep remixes going around youtube of her songs, but the 'video games' remix has made itself my favorite!

i'm a girl who loves my neutrals and minimal design. so i've surprised even myself how much i love these tarai chairs. i want it to be summer, and to have a cute little cafe party in a backyard with these chairs.

so this week is spring break at my old university and a couple friends came home to DC this weekend! so nice to have some creative blood back in my life! my friend christina, and a new friend, may, and i went to the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn museum. a day of nice weather, a little culture, good food, great company, and warhol! doesn't get any better. i brought my camera along and will share some photos inside the museum later in the week. but here are a few snapshots of the weekend from my instagram.

happy monday!
