hello!! it's been awhile! i had hoped to keep up with the ol' blog while i was in california, but i left my camera in my coat pocket so i took the weekend off. but i'm back, well rested, and in high spirits after a great weekend with my family. my sister's wedding was beautiful; the night was perfect, and she was absolutely radiant.
because she is my kind of crazy, she did all the baking for the wedding herself; made her own three-layer cake (dark chocolate orange, vanilla bean, and white chocolate layers,) cannolli, toffee-topped brownies, and tons more all made by the bride herself, from scratch. my sole contribution was frushi, which i was elbow-deep in up until about 30 minutes before the wedding.
fruit sushi! coconut and strawberry rice with a variety of fruits atop.
i got back to new york late sunday night and went straight to my friends' engagement party in astoria. i stayed up, drinking beer and laughing with the grooms-to-be, until about 2 am, then slept on their couch. yesterday we woke up, got bagels, and spent the afternoon in their backyard, playing phase ten and drinking beer. i got my freckle on and a bit of a sunburn, which will hopefully fade in the coming days to a nice mellow tan.
anyhow, perhaps subconsciously in honor of my skin tone, i wear a monotone pink outfit today:
socks: american apparel
i should have lots more this week - my package from weardrobe came (!!!) and lots of lovely things inside for me to try. until then,
