Bourgeois as Hell

Has it really been a month since I last posted????

My brain is scattered in all different directions these days.  Work, an upcoming wedding, 2 friends just had babies (Welcome, Wilson and Ryter!), home renovation projects.

I mentioned last month that I had started this cleanse thing (the 28-Day Challenge over at Whole Living).  Well, because of it, my food/cooking obsession has reached a new level...I am cooking constantly and love every minute of it!

I've always had a "Why buy that, when I can make it?" attitude towards food & fashion-- partly because I am a cheapskate, but mostly because it is just so satisfying to make something perfect from scratch.  Now that we've cut out processed foods, my DIY stubbornness is spreading.  Bread, ice cream, ketchup--the store-bought versions of these often contain high fructose corn syrup, not to mention a variety of preservatives that one can't pronounce.  Why not make them at home, where I can actually control what's in them?

Who knows, before long I may be making my own shampoo and eye cream too...I have my eye on this book already.

Don't worry, I still plan on posting outfits and sewing projects.  But don't be surprised if the occasional food post sneaks in here!


  1. Love the entire outfit, so feminine and chic!!!

  2. "Why buy that, when I can make it?" --> Haha I have this, too! But laziness wins in the end. :)
