If every dish was a work of art garnished with edible flowers, I strongly believe that road rage would end as we know it, and every Internet comment on every news website in the world would be exceptionally civil and polite from now on.
I mean…LOOK AT THAT TOAST. It’s like fine art. How can you not revel in its beauty? Just looking at it makes me happier…
That’s ricotta cheese, and those are strawberries, pistachios, honey, and what Creekside Bakery in Novato (which is where I got it the other day) calls “edible flora.”
I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are… If you know, don’t be shy. Hook a wanna-be horticulturalist up!
I’m gonna make this for breakfast as soon as I find some tasty edible ? flowers… Not today, though. This morning I’m getting down with Eggo waffles with peanut butter and raisins on top (breakfast of champions).
Whatcha having for breakfast this morning? Please know that I won’t judge you if you inhale your food while reading this week’s Saturday Surfing stories. I wake up a ravenous beast ? every morning, and the beast proceeds to rampage through my life until it gets some food in its tummy.
Did you know that these clear lipstick caps were a thing? I didn’t, but I guess you can buy them to replace your opaque standard-issue opaque caps, and they come in different sizes to fit different brands.
Yes, there’s a MAC one. ? MIND BLOWN!!
Wishing I’d thought of this, because I’ve probably spent three years over the course of my life opening and closing lipstick caps to find the right color if I add up all the time I’ve spent.
Like, it’s a mascara wand. How high tech can it be…? Well, apparently, Chanel’s latest wand for the new Volume Révolution de Chanel Mascara sounds pretty fancy.
First of all, it’s the first mascara wand made by a 3D printer. To prevent clumping, the brush has a honeycomb structure designed to gradually siphon out the mascara, so it doesn’t all rush out at once.
If you’re looking for a job in the indie beauty biz, here’s a story about how beauty entrepreneurs hire people for their companies.
Even though the number of women running for U.S. House seats and state governorships in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections has surpassed previous years, the media still insists on critiquing what they’re wearing…
“In politics, it’s still true that unless men’s outfits are out of the ordinary — wrinkled, stained, or downright unusual — their apparel isn’t generally subject to critique. Chintan Desai, who is running for Congress in Arkansas, summed it up well when he wrote to me: ‘I have never, not once, been asked about or had my wardrobe commented on while on the campaign trail.’
“The catch for women is that even when they do show up dressed professionally, they’re still privy to scrutiny. Oscar de la Renta famously criticized Michelle Obama’s cardigan when she met with Queen Elizabeth II, despite the fact that her outfit was perfectly ‘in code.'”
- YO. Ever since I moved my feet into the Land of Practical Flat Mom Shoes, my footwear choices haven’t been terribly interesting, but day-um, these summer sandals with the toes painted on them are too hideous, even for me.
- I’m really like Carisa Janes, the CEO of Hourglass Cosmetics. I interviewed her once, and she was very cool.
Don’t stomp your little last season Prada shoes at me, honey, and dust off ye olde bend and snap, because Reese Witherspoon is coming back for Legally Blonde 3.
Truth? I’m ambivalent about Legally Blonde 2, but I’ve watched the first one more times than I can count. I luuuuuurves it.
And whilst we’re Legally Blonde-ing, this story reveals eight behind-the-scenes secrets from the movie. Like, did you know that it was supposed to be set at Stanford in Palo Alto, and that the final graduation scene (which was filmed in England because Reese was filming something else there at the time) was a last-minute change, so it wasn’t the original ending?
So many fun facts!

When a family muumuu comes full circle…
Oh, and if you happen to have any other creative toast topping suggestions, please let me know, because I cannot eat another piece of avocado toast. I JUST CAN’T DO IT.
(Well…yes I can, but you know what I mean.)
