Beautiful shapely neck ornaments mixed with heavenly marble. How could you not fall in love with this beautiful eye candy from RillRill?
CUTE // These eyelash sweaters are the bomb, no? Plus, they now come in 2 versions: multi-colored and trusty black & white.
MODERN // Don't have room for a huge obtrusive fish tank? This one will fit perfectly with your minimal decor.
NOM // Recipes like these make the paleo diet much more bearable. Seriously, you had me at BACON.
Because mine was friggin' awesome. No really, I think skipping out on Halloween last year helped make it doubly fun this year.
Because Hello Kitty has been on my mind ever since Sanrio formally announced she was NEVER a cat and has been a British girl all along, I happily embodied the "girl" version of her. Goodbye Kitty was Bryan's idea. Originally a joke, but then I made him actually dress the part.
For all you fried chicken fanatics, there's a new contender in town and it's named after the "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." Yes, you heard me right. With menu items named Little Brothel and Big Brothel and a large portrait of Marvin Zindler, who helped facilitate the closing of the namesake, this establishment will make you want to read up on your Texas history even before trying out the food. Conveniently, the Ranch, as I will lovingly call it now, is only 5 blocks away from me. I invited some friends out for a Sunday chowdown at their Soft Opening, which will allow the restaurant to iron out the kinks before their early November opening.
With the best fried chicken being my mother-in-law's, this is the closest you can get to homemade. The batter is crispy, not overly seasoned so you can actually taste the chicken, and the chicken itself was quite juicy. I had the creamed corn and collard greens for sides. The creamed corn was sweet and buttery and the collard greens were flavorful. The only gripe I have is with the biscuit which was dry and doughy but everything else received my stamp of approval. Poor Bryan had to work during my Chicken brunch, so he'll be in for a treat once the kitchen is back in business.
