In My Closet

on my feet- usually rainbow flip flops or matt bernson gladiators (so comfortable)

jewelry- my matta bracelet.i wear as a bracelet or a necklace all the time..reminds me of india!

scent- diptyque

In My Home
walls- i don't have any fancy art work..but i have been coveting Hugo Guinness art for some would be so nice to have a bunch on a wall!

In My Kitchen

15 min recipe- buy one of those cornbread pre-made pizzas at whole foods..grill it and throw some arugula on top..delish!
can't live without ingredient- cheese..i am a savory girl..cheese in any way: on salads, in the side dish, on a board, or fried..i literally couldn't live without it!
Pop Culture Extra Credit
on my nightstands- magazines and a pile of half-read books..(shhh--my mom will be so irritated!)
