Mr. Ian was being very clever by taking this photo at an angle! (“Off-centered ales”)

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!

My birthday is coming around the corner and I have been thinking about what I want. I know it seems weird (or maybe not?) thinking long and hard about what you want and what to tell people to get for you. Maybe it is because I try to ask for things I NEED. Seems simple enough, but considering I don’t go shopping often, I forget about what I need. Then I go to use it, realize I need it, then forget again. So anytime my birthday or christmas comes along I try REALLY hard to remember what I need.
So I put together a semi-lame birthday wishlist. I mean I can easily say that I want cute jewelry and lots of dresses because I always want that stuff. But this my list that is half “in my dreams” and half “so lame no one would get it for me.” See, I’m not getting ANY of this stuff for my birthday.
1 lip balm + lip stick
I’ve been reading a bunch smarty pants online memes about how people should get an award for using a whole tube of lipbalm. I do. In fact I am the last little bits of balm in 3 different tubes. Yikes! I have only one tube left. I also want to dabble in more lipsticks. I’ve heard great things about Lime Crime, vegan and quality wise. It is a little pricey, but I can always hope right?
2 tiny socks + small socks + tights
I think socks and tights are always on my wishlist- every year. I don’t know why everyone ignores it. I always get holes and runs in my stockings or I just simply loose half of the sock pair. Come on guise! Help me out! I even buy socks every time I buy a pair of shoes from DSW. I mean I haven’t been in over a year, which might be why I am extra desperate.
3 cardigans + sweaters
I’ve been complaining a lot on this blog about how cold I am at work. Or maybe I don’t and just delete that paragraph before publishing articles. But my bosses have been keeping the workspace fairly cool. I’ve been wearing the same three sweaters over and over again, and I need more. I also feel my cardigans getting a little ratty.
4 cookbooks isa does it + vegan eats world + rawsome vegan baking
I ALWAYS want more cookbooks. At this moment I would like these. I’ve been reading This Rawsome Vegan Life pretty often. Her writing style is great and her recipes look yummy. So I think Rawsome Vegan Baking would be a great dessert book to add. I also would love the most recent Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. They never seem to fail me.
5 canon rebel t5i digital slr camera
Being a little too hopeful huh? Yup, I want a really nice SLR camera. I always wanted one and was thinking about getting an analog one in college. It never fleshed out since I know film itself is pricey. But this camera is for big plans for this site. Videos and super sexy food. My current camera is SOO old, that iphones usually take better photos. Yikes. I’ve been saving all my tip money in hopes of buying the camera, but I am still pretty far behind. I am inching towards $300 saved up.

Dress: Hot Topic | Cardigan: Hot Topic | Shoes: Payless
Hello fellow readers! It’s me Alexa, your Cool-Goth-Friend! I know that Jenny already made her post a few weeks ago about our big outing, but I just never got to it until today.
Like Jenny mentioned previously, she came up to visit me so we could get some work done on the blog and take cute pics of our outfits over at Deep Cut Gardens. My boyfriend, known as Mr. Ian, brought me here when we first started dating and I fell in love with the place. It has a beautiful green house with various different species growing inside, and the grounds are well maintained and look spectacular in the spring and summer time.

Bubba and Blaze
Hello again. I posted here once last week and planned on putting up a tea review and then a fashion post, but this last week has been one of the hardest times of my life.
Bubba and me – thanks Mom!
I have been around horses for almost as long as I can remember. Not many people get to say that, and I consider myself lucky every day. The first two that impacted my life in a big way were Blaze and her best buddy Bubba. Bubba passed away three years ago, and it was hard for me back then because I had already been removed from her for a while. I was finishing up my junior year at SVA in the city when my mother told me we had to put her down. I remember being so upset, and very worried about Blaze. The two of them couldn’t stand to be separated for any length of time. You would have to take both of them out to the field from the barn together for them to be calm…what was Blaze supposed to do without her other half? Mom said she reacted as, I think, almost any animal would. Confused, then understanding.
On April 16th, Blaze left this world, and left a hole in my heart.
April 15, 2014
Oh hi there! I would just like to take this time to introduce myself. My name’s Alexa, and I’m the other half of “One Raw Bite”. To put it plainly – I’m the artistic and slightly less healthy half (not necessarily because I don’t WANT to be).
Jenny and I have known each other since I was a freshman in high school (she was a senior). In the short period of time that we went to school together we made a strong bond with each other. Every time we saw each other we listened to music (specifically JPop or KPop related), watched movies (also of the Asian variety) and, you guessed it…ate delicious food! We were much less healthy back then…but hey, that’s what being 16 and 18 years old is for, right?! We also quickly realized that we both have a love of fashion (our tastes have become somewhat refined over the past few years), so really we’re just a match made in heaven.
