green juice: a love letter

In the chaos that was this summer (seriously, where did it go?), I found myself jumping on the juicing train in a big way.

Those of you who know me know can vouch for the fact that I have at most times in my life been the farthest thing from a health nut. Still, on the eve of opening a PIZZA restaurant, I found myself craving extra energy to get through this wild season in our lives. Surprisingly, I found that very thing from cleaning up what I was shoving into my trap.

Inspired by Mark Bittman's recent book VB6 (Vegan Before Six), I decided to give the famous foodie's approach to eating a chance. What's the plan then? Simple. You eat vegan until 6 p.m. each day.  This very regimen helped him lose over 30 lbs.

moustache up!

Hello out there.

Do you have kids? Do you know someone who does? Are you a big kid yourself? Do you enjoy facial hair?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions may I suggest that you pick up a copy of Moustache Up! the latest children's book written by yours truly and illustrated by my dear pal D.

Not only is it fun for even the youngest of kiddos, but it comes with press out moustaches of all shape and size.

Purchase your copy here. Do it! You know you want to.

vintage globe lights

Aren't these vintage globe lights amazing? 

Our little family has been up to our eyeballs opening a restaurant over the past months and one of the fun tasks on our lists was combing Etsy and other vintage sites for colorful globe lighting to complete the interior.

Through this process, I've found myself yearning for a toned down version of these lights for our new house.

Pinterest has a limited offering of the look above so let's just drool over a few more images of this rad kitchen shall we?
