Happy Birthday, Material Girl!

August 17th, 2011

It’s Madonna’s birthday today! Does anyone else think that she’s hit a point at which she doesn’t seem to be aging? Okay, maybe it’s just me. I never really listened to popular music until I got my own stereo in highschool – my parents are much more into classical music and musical numbers – but […]

One of my all-time favourite singers’ birthday is today, and I’ve been listening to his music all day. Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong!

Fashion is Danger

March 19th, 2011

I did say this blog would contain things other than food, didn’t I? In the interest of keeping my promises, let’s get started on that! While food for me has often been about exploring ideas one (or a few) at a time, fashion and design are so much a part of my background and training […]
