Found Me

October 12, 2011 § 1 Comment

So a few years back….maybe 5? A photographer came to P-town, a friend of a friend i ended up meeting him at nemo. After our first introduction he asked me if we could do a photo shoot. Flattered and shocked, me being all of 5’3″ but i quickly agreed. The next weekend we met in the studio at nemo, i brought my entire wardrobe and we shot for an hour or so. I haven’t really thought about those photos in years until i ran across one on the inter web this morning.

With a constant lack of photos of myself….i have begun to wish i spent more time in front of the camera instead of behind it.

Here’s another of my 20 year old self….thanks Stephen where ever you are!

Wildfox and Jeffery Campbell

October 11, 2011 § 1 Comment

Launching in February of 2012, this will be a collaboration to remember!

I have been completely in love with Jeffery Campbell since the moment i met the shoes….this love affair  started merely with the fact that JC was the only line with hot heals that came in size mini for my tiny peds. But now what was an innocent love affair has blossomed into a full blown obsession. Now, as i am nursing my wallet back to health and avoiding any place that carries my size (easy when you are a 4.5-5) i run across the news that my obsession may not be so easily weaned. Wildfox and JC are combining their evilly irresistible design powers to create a line that i am sure will prove to be positively wallet-crushing.

Start saving now. Feburary 2012 here I come.

Melon Rumballa

October 3, 2011 § 1 Comment

As much as i don’t like rum, i absolutely love Melon! This drink is so absolutely beautiful to look at, i don’t see why it would be equally delicious, especially with the home made vanilla infused rum! YUM YUM!

The Melon Rumballa recipe was concocted and written by former Martha Stewart and Food & Wine stylist, Lauren Fister. Lauren now works for a studio, Teroforma. There are many of Teroforma items in the pictures.

Melon Rumballa
Makes about 8 cocktails

Ingredients

  • 3–4 ripe melons, depending on size
  • 1/2 liter white rum
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, cleaned and stemmed
  • 3 limes juiced
  • 8 oz ginger soda
  • 8 oz coconut water
  • whole vanilla beans
  • candied ginger (for garnish)
  • sugar for rimming the glasses
  • ice

Methodology

1. We made our own vanilla rum and suggest you do, too — it’s fun and allows you to use any quality of spirit you want while controlling the sweetness. Place 1 vanilla bean in a sealed jar or other vessel with rum and let sit. We used our own Issi cruets, which are usually intended for oil & vinegar but work just perfectly for this. Taste frequently until the rum reaches desired flavor. After a week, the rum will be fully infused; however, you can let stand for up to a month for a more intense punch.

2. Use a melon baller to, well, create melon balls and place in the freezer a full hour before serving. If juice from the melons is left over, this can be added to the drink.

3. Muddle mint sprigs and lime juices until well combined.

4. In a pitcher, add muddled mint (and juices), lime juice, rum, ginger soda and coconut water and stir together. Again, a pitcher with a stirrer works best, but you can use a long spoon, too.

5. We love the mad scientist aspect to making cocktails. At this point, taste your drink to see what it needs. Every taste is different, so however you imagine it is how it should be. For more sweetness, we suggest more ginger soda, melon juice or even some simple sugar or pineapple juice. To reduce the sweetness, consider adding a touch more lime juice.

One last slice of summer before hot cider, falling leaves and pumpkin seeds begin.

Thank you Miss Fister!
