i'm blue

...with less than seven hours to spare in the month of june, let's talk blueberries!

via science daily


i wasn't always a fan. 

(excluding some length of time in 7th grade where the ONLY cereal i'd eat was blueberry morning. what a weird little tween!)


but i've grown to like them.


june is their time to shine.

i actually like them raw, and the boy adds them to his daily dose of morning oatmeal. but there are other ways to enjoy these little guys. ways that take them beyond the muffins and pancakes they so often are find themselves in.

the kitchn (part of apartment therapy) has some yummy-sounding blueberry basil ice cream. (or, 'baz-ul'  in the UK!)

over at sprouted kitchen

there's a great recipe for blueberry & cream tarts. even better? the berries aren't cooked.

(btdubs, the photos on this site blow my bokeh-loving mind)  

i enjoy fresh fruit so. much. more. than its heated counterpart.

"but it's the summer, and i'm dying of thirst!" you say.

(full disclosure? never read the blog before. but, i'm always down for pretty food pics.)

i like this idea because lemon always brightens things up.

and with that, i say, happy berry season!

just remember to check your teeth after eating these. that skin will get stuck in your teeth like nobody's business. yikes.

side note: when i first posted about seasonal eats, i linked to two resources, neither of which included dc in their list.  i checked back recently and field to plate now includes lil ol dc. even if they just link to the farmers' market page, it's progress!

knock knock


behind the scenes

checking tommy ton's jak & jill blog is a near-daily ritual for me.

the vibrant colors, the large-format photos, the seemingly all-access fashion pass he must carry on his person at all times

 i love it all.

he updates often, the pictures are always beautiful, and he lets you into a world that few of us will ever see first hand. 

if it's not part of your morning coffee/blog routine, let's change that!


...and a good friday to you too, sir

cool stop-motion video from OscarPRGirl

apparently the hats worn with the resort 2012 collection were made this way. you can see a model wearing the finished product at the end.

kinda cool to see a big timer getting their DIY on

i can feel it.

no words

i've always loved good, clean interior design.

i used to only admire homes from afar, dreaming of the day when i'd get a chance to have one of my own. 

back in april, the boy and i were fortunate enough to be able to purchase our first home.* 
i love it there, even though early summer travel has kept me out of it more often than i'd like.

there's plenty of amazing apartments and homes showcased daily on sites like apartment therapy and dwell. pinterest has simply allowed me to cast a wider net..uhhh, on the internet. 

anyways, i found this one today via pinterest and it just needed to be shrared. 

i mean come ON

if you're still dying to see more, check out the original posts (it's a five-part series!) on house of turquoise

there's definitely some aspects of the home that aren't 100% me, but that's why it's not mine, right? 

i just love their pops of color, use of textures and patterns, and the bright and airy feel that's carried throughout the whole home. 

*check back in 10 years when i've been able to do this to my pad.
