She’s got sunset on her breath


i spent a few magical hours with two very lovely ladies recently in amish-ville, PA.  the day was overcast and misty, it let me feel like i was slipping through time into all of the books i used to read, transformed into a world of fairies and ghouls, actually if the Goblin King himself showed up i dont think i would have been that surprised. but he wouldn’t have come for me.. he would have come for them.  and i would have put up a fight.  they were like Boudica and Morgan le Fay wrapped into tattered gowns and vintage furs, milk skin and matted hair, feathers and grass stains. i think im in love…

thank you Lauren and Kelly ♥

soupçon

so ive been meaning to post about all the yumminess i’ve been part of since i have been back in the states and i just havent.  boo me.  anywho i thought with all of the change of the season yuckyness that has inevitably been going around and unfortunately has hit my home twice now already, id share a fantastic/fast/easy and soooo yummy recipe for some great chicken soup. it’s loosely based on Tom Yum, very light in flavors, not thick in the least and the vegetable still have their crispiness because they’re added at the end. takes about a half an hour and feeds about a million.

ingredients:

chicken breast

lots of garlic

fresh ginger

mushrooms

onions

egg noodles

really good tomatoes

fresh cilantro

the juice of several fresh limes

chicken or veggie stock

salt and pepa

anything else you want to put into it!

so.  take a big pot, heat up a little olive oil and then sear the chicken on each side till a little golden, remove. saute onions, garlic and ginger until translucent.  slice chicken breasts roughly and throw em back in. add the stock, sliced mushrooms and lime juice. bring to a boil and add egg noodles. cook until al dente. turn heat off and add the tomatoes and cilantro.  done!

i’ve added snap peas, celery and scallions to the above pictured, and obvz through out the winter the ingredients will change due to the sparseness of produce — but some other things that would be really good are fresh jalapenos, carrots, spinach, bok choy, coconut milk….

a big pot usually lasts us a whole week of dinners and a few lunches too. i hope you try this, it’s been a crowd pleaser for years and is literally a no brainer.  let me know if you do – i’d love to know how it goes!

bide my time

i am very much enjoying sass and bide’s fall collection… i just want to know how to get some of it on me.  really cool hair too,, think i can do that with my new quaff?

so how are you anyway?  excited for the weekend?  i only have one day this weekend as i have a pretty intensive photo shoot on Sunday — but im excited for it..  we are shooting in a stunning home in manhattan a very speak easy kind of a place… ill be styling the band in a modern/tribal/victorian way with just a touch of boudicca and rum running/bootlegging influences. and a few pinches of 1990’s african politician.  defs will be good. i’ll be shooting some b roll too so you can have some (tiny) sneak peaks before the images come out..
