eva mendes in turquoise

i think her dress is adorable! it's a bit jcrew-esque, no?
it's nice seeing her attempt something other than her usual sex-kitten look.
i have no idea where this pic came from or when it was taken.

pink and brown

pink reminds me of femininity.

brown reminds me of chocolate.

therefore, i am a fan of the following combinations...

mariana bridi de costa

brazilian miss world finalist dies after having her hands and feet amputated.

doctors determined the infection was from an uncontrolled urinary tract infection (can you believe it?)

one minute you're on stage, the next minute you're gone. she was only 20 years old. so sad.

small white bathroom

this is basically what my bathroom looks like.
no vanity space.
small and white.
i love how the top of the cabinet was used for storage and decor!
i realize this is the room where people go to take care of business, but i think it should still be pretty.
makes the process more pleasant.image via david jimenez

great chicken recipe

combine the following

1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


-use 2/3 of the marinade to cover 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves. let it marinate for 30 min in fridge.

-place marinated chicken in an appropriately sized pyrex, cover the chicken w/ the rest of the marinade

-bake in oven for 45 min at 375 (would be fantastic for the grill too)

it turns out so so so juicy and delicious!

go fix your nose

i'm in the library trying to get some reading done. but i'm distracted.
by what, you ask?...
my neighbor's nose is whistling!
yes. whistling!
how does she not hear it?
it's driving me mad!
the library is dead quiet...except her whistling nose.
good grief. make it stop.
