And, Cinco de Mayo!! :) I do love Cinco de Mayo. But everyday feels like Cinco de Mayo for us. :) We live on so many rice & beans, flavorful braised or roasted meats and tortillas with homemade salsas and guacamoles. Mexican food really is our most loved staple around here. Some day soon we'll post our favorite recipes...
But for now, here some of my favorite things.....
-Some friends of mine here in New York have helped create the most darling video of an original fairy tale - starring kids! Many generations of this family have a background with advertising, directing, designing, etc....so I wasn't surprised that is was so well done. They're calling it 'Clara Tales' and they are trying to produce good quality videos with good morals. You can see their kickstarter campaign here and their first video here. It is ADORABLE. (Your kids will want to watch this with you.....)
-This is one of the cutest ideas I've ever seen with balloons - definitely saving this idea for future birthday parties.
-Whipped cream from coconut milk? This looks amazing. I had no idea I could do this.
-Hear why Cindy Crawford says she wants to look like "Cindy Crawford". This video about women portrayed in advertising is good for any woman to see (especially young women). May it inspire you to OWN your beautiful womanhood.
-I love these urban cityscapes on cardboard (!)
-I'm a huge fan of fruit flavored waters. It's the easiest, prettiest drink for parties, too.
-This is THE best line-up of breakfast ideas I have ever seen. I want to eat every single one of them. (I'm also a huge fan of Frank Lipman in New York. My acupuncturist used to share an office space with him.)
-Here are some fun dog names for graphic designers. (Danny & I often think of getting a dog....though...the size of our apartment + the desire for little people in this place holds us a back a little...any thoughts??)
Happy Weekend To Everyone!!
