Keeping Your Cool In Winter

So many of these photos came out blurry, but I still wanted to use them. Apologies for lack of posts lately - I had a cold the beginning of the month (I never get sick!), lots of work things going on...

Last week me and Max went to the Garfield Park Conservatory since I was dying for some warm, fresh, plant air! 

 I've also been growing some plants at home to have something green around during the winter - I finally found some basil seeds here! (Harder to find than you might think this time of year.)


 Wearing my awesome vintage hat that Max's mom got me for Christmas!


 I got this tie scarf in my favorite super-secret thrift store. It has to be early 70s to mid 70s based on the colors and polyester-ness of it. Last time I wore it, some guy in Wicker Park called me "zany". I didn't know if that was a compliment or not.



 This might be my favorite room - these glass flower-things! It almost reminds me of that scene in Willy Wonka (1971) and the Chocolate Factory. Definitely one of those movies that solidified my artistic aesthetic.




Next week I have an entire week off, so look out for a new addition to the blog - RECIPES! I had more than one reader out there begging for recipes for food I make. My dad happens to be a chef and I learned a few things from him, so expect some good things! These recipes are also relatively easy to make.
