Ghibellina: Gamberi e Polenta

Tried a new place for brunch a few weekends ago, Ghibellina on 14th St NW. Had a lovely shrimp and polenta dish and overall enjoyed the experience. Would definitely head back for another visit.

Ten Years On…

Just thinking about 2007 now that we’re ten years on from it. I’m moderately more of an adult now than I was then, but I miss a little bit of my carefree shenanigans and not feeling weighed down by everything. I don’t even know if I’d really recognize myself from then, but it’s nice to flip through my online photo albums and realize what a difference a decade makes.

Julia Child… (and Her Amazing Friends)

I absolutely love this photo of Julia Child filming a promo for “The French Chef” in 1964. It embodies the reason I’ve never quite made any food/recipe/cooking videos for YouTube: it’s a heck of a lot of work!

Alexandria Library Sit-In (1939)

On August 21, 1939, five citizens of the city walked into library and sat at one of its reading tables. Though surrounded by the wisdom of the ages, they were denied access to the thoughts on the shelves around them for a reason as implausible as the color of their skin. For merely being in the room, they were arrested.

Cleveland Park, Rainy Sunday

Cleveland Park is both cute and photogenic, even on grey and rainy days. Just a few pictures taken while wandering around and waiting for my brunch spot to open.

Guy Laroche, Ebony Fashion Fair

This Guy Laroche evening suit perfectly embodies this quote. “If you’re not dressed in the most refined, glittering fabrics, you must be glowing in the richest colors imaginable.” — Eunice Johnson

Mid-Century Modern: 1951 Armstrong Flooring Catalog

I’ve always had a fondness for the mid-century modern era’s ability to create an alternate “perfect reality” in their ads. Check out these delightful pictures from the 1951 Armstrong Flooring Catalog from flickr user mcudeque. A better idea for family...

Man Crush Monday: Skarsgard’s Got Legs

I don’t get into awards shows all that much, which means I usually miss the live swear words or wardrobe malfunctions, and I’m OK with that. That said, I’m also OK with Alexander Skarsgard presenting an award in this fashion…...
