Shirt & Dress: H&M ‘Vintage’ | Tights: Gifted | Shoes: Modcloth

It has been so long since either of us have posted a fashion post! Part of it was because of Vegan Mofo, another part was just because I was being lazy over the summer. It isn’t my time to dress up, it is more like “what’s clean and coolest?” Well, Alexa came to Philly with me and we took some pictures of our CUTE outfits in a reconstructed herb garden in Old City. (Old City is the area where you will find Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell) Then we went to HipCityVeg for lunch, which was pretty awesome!

But my main reason for posting is that this is our 100th post! I can’t believe how far this blog has come already, and that I posted so much! I remember having the idea for the blog stewing in my mind for a year or so, and just never getting around to it. And yes, there are things I haven’t developed as much as I hoped, but it is still growing. So in this post I will talk about what we plan on working on with the blog:

Weekly Recipes & Alexa Asks

After Vegan Mofo, I kind-of started to get into the habit of making at least 1 recipe a week. And I want to keep that momentum going. Even if that means the recipe is just a smoothie, or cocktail. I think I have enough going on, and enough random weeknight improvisation going on to add new recipes that often. 

I also want to keep posting Alexa Asks every week. I have lots of questions from Alexa, or from other friends and people. Hopefully some people will be happy to post questions to be answered in future posts as well!

Monthly Ingredients, Recipe Round Ups and Cookbook Reviews

I’ve only done one cookbook review and one recipe round up, but that doesn’t mean I am not working on new ones. I have some recipe round ups started, and only a few more recipes to add to it. I also have started a detailed review of Vegan Eats World, and starting Isa Does It. So hopefully you guys will like that. 

Also pages explaining ingredients was going to be a big part of the site, and I have been super lazy about that. But I am going to work on it again, and I have three foods coming up: Gochujang, Cushaw, and Tomatillos. I hope at least one or more of those ingredients is making you raise an eyebrow! Alexa will be drawing cute pictures to go with them as well!

Alexa and I have some ideas for different features. We will keep them secret for now. But some sneak peaks will be themes like Sailor Moon month (wut?!) or Korean food month. There will be lots more, we will keep a little hush hush about it

Updated Shop

Hopefully I will get around to adding more to our little Etsy Shop. You can buy prints of drawings from the site, and I will be making sure they are constantly updated when we add new ones. We also have much more milk glass bud vases and vintage clothing to add. We want to have much more jewelry, shirts, etc featuring our food doodles. 

Moving off of Bloglovin

Okay, so this is a little weird one which really doesn’t effect the blog. Some people might of seen me, Jennifer, active on Bloglovin. If I stop following you, it doesn’t mean I stopped reading your blog. I am just trying to transition into Feedly. My computer is a little older and the Bloglovin format slows my computer down. I also like reading blogs on my tablet, and Bloglovin’s app totally messes up formatting. 

Our blog is still easy to follow via Bloglovin and our button link will stay over there. Truthfully, there are more foodies who use feedly, and we have over 150 followers on THAT platform, so why not make the switch?

Updating Our Side Bar

Yeah we need to do that. I think I need to make changes with our social media links, and blog links. Oh man those are outdated. There are so many new blogs I would love to link, and maybe divide them up by categories (fashion, food, feminism, etc) Maybe expand our social media outlets, though I am not sure what other people use. 

So those are our big plan. What do you guys think?

New outfit post! 

I originally bought this dress from Modcloth in a size too big and was SO disappointed! It was definitely a bummer because I had seen it on their website and found it adorable and perfect for the summer time. When I finally received it all previous problems had vanished. 

This is my first Jack by BB Dakota dress, but I have noticed from their other dresses on Modcloth that I probably just really like the brand itself. A lot of black and white dress styles, which fit perfectly with pretty much everything I wear. This dress is perfect for Spring and Summer, it is very light-weight and has great little details added onto it. The only complaint I have about this dress is the slip underneath. I feel as though the center is never truly “centered” when I have it on unless I adjust it several times throughout the day, and whenever I do go to adjust it it shifts awkwardly. I’ll pull on the left side and I feel the right side move. Weird!

This post is coming out a tad bit late – but better late than never…eh?

On the weekend of April 25th a bunch of my friends and I took a weekend-long trip down to Rehoboth, Delaware to visit the Dogfish Head Brewery! Dogfish Head is actually in Milton, Delaware…but the house we rented was in Rehoboth. It was a weekend-long birthday celebration for my friend Keith (seen below), he’s an old man now.

 It was a great time!

Dress: Sunny Girl | Cardigan: Timing via SIX on east | Clutch: Vintage via Unbred Vintage | Shoes: Pink Studio

My jobs seem to be less and less fashion friendly lately. I’ve been very busy over at my restaurant job, which entails wearing grease stained clothing. My framing job has been FREEZING! I am constantly just wearing pants and a cuddly sweater. Add on top of that my work has been keeping me really busy.

But I wanted to share two recent outfits with one of my favorite dresses. I got it from Modcloth about a year and half ago and it is very versatile. I usually wear it to work at the frame shop since it works so well with a cardigan and tights. But I recently found out that you can dress it up. I got this sequined jacket for a wedding, but the skirt I was going to pair it with did not fully mix. But it worked perfectly this dress. I was going to take a photo of the outfit at the wedding, but the lighting was very weird, and afterwards I had too much to drink to care.

Can I also point out how big my calves are? Holy crap right? I guess they are the results from running with five finger shoes. I love my body but it makes me a little sad about if I will be ever able to wear my skinny jeans again. They are so hard to squeeze over my calves, and if I size up it will be too big for the waist. Oh well.
