i came across a website called streetpeeper (i also love their logo)'s so addicting! you can choose a major city that's on the list and look at pictures of crazy/cool/confusingly outfitted people on the streets. 
i was peeping nyc and this is some of what i found...

i love this woman's dress:
i'm not sure why, but this image gave me a strange sense of comfort...perhaps it reminds me of an outfit my mom or aunty fatin may have worn in the 80's?:
i love the draping of this woman's shirt and coat:
i would love a cape like this one:

it's may. wow.

hello, my friends. i have somewhat abandoned this blog, but it's always in my heart. :) 

today has been quite a productive day which makes the person inside me who loves to make lists just to cross things off very happy. i cleaned my apartment, went to the bank, had lunch with michelle and her babysitting girls (soooo adorable!) and i baked vegan brownie cupcakes (while wearing my favorite cupcake apron that alex got me.) 
in between all of this, i made myself a really delicious and simple snack. i sliced up a tomato and put fresh mint leaves in between the slices. i drizzled a little olive oil, gave it a dash of salt and pepper and shaved a bit of parmesan on top and voila! fresh goodness!

mm mm good.

earlier this evening i had a couple special guests for dinner...farah and nickole. we all share the love for food so i decided to think like a top chef contestant and make something interesting. i came up with the following dishes: a salad of mixed greens, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries and shaved pecorino in a shallot honey vinaigrette dressing. the main dish consisted of seared scallops over mashed cauliflower and potatoes w/ roasted asparagus and dried cranberries that had been soaked in the vinaigrette. 
the flavors meshed wonderfully and we practically licked our plates! 
is it bad to want to eat my mashed potatoes/cauliflower leftovers at 1:30 am?
