Boss Status

Ok first of all - the name of the store is Very French Gangsters. Second of all, they took a whole series of kiddie mugshots (and if you've been following my blog/know me you know I have a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge thing for babies, particularly babies with attitude). Third, their glasses are beyond rad (and I never, EVER use that word). 

What more need I say?

Monday Munchies - Homemade Breakfast Edition

So in order to make myself blog on a more regular basis, I've decided to introduce Monday Munchies! Where I'll be blogging about anything food related every Monday because I honestly don't know a better way to start off the week than to talk about food (and mostly because it's the only day of the week that starts with the same letter as munchies).

To kick off this new installation, what better to talk about than my favorite meal of the day -- breakfast! (Or more often, brunch. Since as all college students will tell you, it really doesn't seem possible to get out of bed before 10 am. It really is ridiculous.)

Here's a collection of my go-to's:
(1) Blueberries and Greek Yogurt, often substituted with seedless grapes
(2) Chocolate chip pancakes and milk 
(3) Brie and apple omelet with a side of tortilla 
(4) Poached eggs over herb-gruyere toasts, recipe can be found here.

I promise I'll try to make the upcoming food posts a tad bit more exciting than this. 

But in the meantime, happy Monday!

Sunny Sundays

Sundays I usually save for work. But work as a second semester senior really doesn't mean much more than surfing the web. So here's a compilation of all the interesting finds this week!

Don't think I've ever laughed this hard -- 50 people I wish I met.

Amazing stand up on our highly digital world!

This got me all nostalgic. So much of my childhood was spent between pages of a book.

Does this ever happen to you? It happens to me a little too often!

Made me laugh out loud. Oh hipsters...

Apparently this is how we're supposed to eat Toblerones. Woops...

How delicious does this look?! I think I've found my next brunch endeavor! (Although I think half of the appeal is those adorable little ceramic trays)

Bye bye drive-in theatres, hello sail-ins!!

And for those who are stuck in the t-shirt funk

Up on the Tree Tops

Came across this little restaurant in Soneva Kiri Resort in Thailand while reading mymodernmet and I am in love. Apparently you enter this little nest and get hoisted 16 feet up to the tree tops. 

How romantic is this restaurant? Just imagine sitting in this little nest as the sun sets behind you until all that's left is a faint flicker of a candle and a star speckled sky. (Forever the hopeless romantic sigh!) But honestly though, if you're into Tarzan or still a kid at heart nostalgic of that tree house (actually aren't these two synonymous?), this is perfect. Let's just hope the food lives up to the concept.
(Check out the "flying servers" all the way on the right! So Tarzan-esque, swinging from branch to branch!]

Spring Break - Part II (Las Vegas, Grand Canyon)

Oh Vegas...
How would I describe it?
Drunk, crazy and over the top - all boxed and wrapped up in a thick layer of money topped with a big fat bow. Girls in skimpy skin tight dresses (it was like an unspoken uniform! Everywhere! I'm pretty sure Vegas can easily proclaim the title of highest density of scantily clad girls. Honestly, I  think I've seen every color, shape, size of skin tight dresses to last me a lifetime) hanging onto the arms of balding, (presumably) wealthy men.

I must admit that this is all a little much for me. And since I'm not a big fan of gambling, Vegas was more of a pit stop to Grand Canyon. (I'm crazy, I know. Crazy boring? Crazy lame? Check... and check) 
Dinner at Estiatorio Milos, LV. Possibly the most delicious (and most expensive!) fish I've ever had in my life.
[Dear Mr. Fish, I offer my sincerest apologies for failing to capture the utter sensory ecstasy that you so sacrificed your life for.]
The drive to Grand Canyon.
Wide open spaces, sun roofs, long stretches of giggles, Asian eyes, bumpy roads, running out of gas in the middle of nowhere, puffs of sand clouds, holding my pee until my bladder was about to burst.
But we made it and man... was it worth it! (Maybe mostly because I finally got to pee)
Grand Canyon was... breathtaking. It was unreal, so unreal that at times I felt like I was just looking at a backdrop on some Hollywood set.

Stepping out onto the edge, I got a huge case of vertigo (to this day I still have no idea how I ever skydived without shitting my pants) - my palms started sweating and I literally had to crawl on all fours over to the edge (you'd never be able to tell from these photos hahaha)

Definitely one of those places you have got to visit before you die. Although, I really wish I had hiked the damn thing. Or repelled off it (how badass would that have been?!).

Ahh well... As my parents would say - well, there you go, now you have reason to go back.

So, I guess, until then GC!
