Early Summer Scrapbook

My peonies are out! I’ve waited all year for this week.

My go-to for the impossible dinner guest – vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free paella.

I upgraded my Vans.

Dream.

These saved my life in Vegas.

Holy shit.

Last weekend, I had a staycation at the newish Corinthia Hotel and it was fantastic.

Crazy beautiful orchids greeted me at the door to my suite.

If you look out the window…

Bar inspiration.

No kids. Hello, full night of sleep.


Loving the recipes in this book, which are what the title says.

New Stella sunnies.

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict at The Wolseley. My favorite brunch in London.

Who doesn’t need a covert flask?

Indicud, by Kid Cudi, is on repeat in my house right now.

Homemade baked beans for 4th of July BBQ. #expat

I have been on a tear trying new restaurants in London…

HKK: 15 course, cutting-edge, super decadent Chinese food in Shoreditch. Am I cool enough for this neighborhood?… Nope.

Corner Room: The best of local and seasonal British with a Portuguese slant in Bethnal Green.

Burger & Lobster: The name of the place is the whole menu, just burgers and lobster done to perfection. Worth braving the long lines for a slice of East Coast heaven.

Yashin Sushi: Small plates and inventive nigiri right off High Street Kensington. As the sign says, no soy sauce.

The Fall: I was totally obsessed with this five episode BBC series. I was devastated when it ended…

But then I found the French show The Returned, which may be even better.


This summer, I finally resolve to try home preserving.

J’adore cette montre de Baume et Mercier.

Butterfly Paradise exhibit at the London Zoo.

Thank you, Amazon.
