I saw my friend Jessica last weekend, and she now has the exact same haircut as Baby from Dirty Dancing. As we walked through Central Park with the sun shining, I couldn’t help but snap a pic. I mean, look at those ringlets!
I’ve been loving Bon Appetit’s Youtube series with test kitchen manager, Brad Leone, who is hilarious and endearing, like the funny guy at the party. What is it about a man with a scruffy beard, a sense of humor, and cooking skills that makes you want to drop your pants? No? Just me? I am SERIOUSLY crushing, you guys, I mean, just look at him (my two favorite videos: kimchi and camping).
I love realizing I need something practical because it gives me the perfect excuse to “research” that item for like, 10 hours. And the reviews, especially those incredibly quirky, thorough ones — they’re so fun to read! I’m on the hunt for two things right now: a good travel mug, and a humidifier. According to the Wire Cutter, this is the best travel mug, but I haven’t settled on a humidifier yet. This one, which is only $15, seems promising. Do you own one? Any recommendations?
My long-time friend, Kristen, recently wrote an article for Medium about restlessness in your 20’s. One resource she suggested was Work Away. Have you heard of it? It’s a cultural exchange site with thousands of opportunities around the world — you volunteer in exchange for food and a place to stay, and you can go pretty much anywhere in the world, from a yoga retreat in Jamaica, to a pomegranate farm in Israel. I spent an hour just browsing the site last night, wondering where I would go if I could pick up and go anywhere this very instant.
Lastly, if there’s one thing you bring to your Friendsgiving, it should be these famous tahini chocolate chip cookies. Everyone will ask, “Why are these the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had?” and it’s up to you whether you disclose that valuable information :).
