the turquoise python clutch

On July 16, 2014 by theseventhsphinx

Here’s one of the python bags I picked up from the Etsy shop linmade. Just as lovely in person.

I immediately wanted to see it with white nail polish.


On the nails: Wet n’ Wild French White Cream, which actually I don’t recommend. Not friendly to work with.

We are pleased.


on the menu: waffles & jam

OK, here’s what you do:

1. Make waffles

2. Top your waffle generously with jam (I highly recommend this: Ficsher & Wieser Amaretto Peach Pecan. So, so delicious. Other possibilities: strawberry rhubarb, plum, sour cherry…or, you know, nutella)

3. Add a small mountain of berries

4. Douse with warm maple syrup – the real stuff only, and the darker the better


5. Try not to eat too fast

[Good luck with that.]


on the menu: Thai green curry + coconut ginger rice

Green curry from scratch. Completely respectable, too. I followed the recipe from Sorted, not even that precisely, and had excellent results.

Often I find it hard to justify digging out the food processor, but this was good reason. Heat from a jalapeño and a dundicut pepper…just right.
