A Few of My Own

So I thought I'd share some of my own work with everyone this morning.  Since updating my website is going rather slowly, I might as well post my stuff here in the mean time. Enjoy!

This is part of a project I refer to as delicates.  I started out photographing my personal belongings in my personal space in a way that displays them as individual characters. I'll post some of the earlier work later today sometime.  Prior to these above images, I was singling out my subjects by moving everything out of the frame aside from the character I wanted to shoot.  Conversely, this project has slowly evolved into documenting other peoples belongings and living spaces in the similar but less structured way.  Rather than move things out of the frame, I try to find a flattering and interesting position to frame what is already existing in the space. This is my grandparents home in Potomac, Maryland.  I never realized how similar our taste was until I visited this past spring and took these.

Homemade Vegan Oatmeal Bread

So I decided to finally buy a food processor of my own today.  Lately a lot of what I've been making has required or suggested one and I've been having to borrow from a friend.  Anyway, I'm really excited I have my own now because I can make things like this:

I'm surprised it turned out so well because this is my first attempt at making plain bread. It's perfectly moist and delicious! I've decided rather than timing everything perfectly, I just bake until it looks good and it generally turns out better.  I wouldn't necessarily suggest doing the same but it definitely works for me! Anyway, I found this recipe here but made a few minor changes.


  1. 1 cup rolled oats
  2. 1 cup cake flour (Central Market)
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 1 1/2 tbsp Goodflow Honey
  6. 1 tbsp canola oil
  7. 1 cup Silk Plain Soy Milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Grind oatmeal in a food processor
  3. In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. 
  4. In a separate bowl, dissolve honey in canola oil and stir in the milk. Combine dry mixture with wet mixture and stir until a soft dough is formed. 
  5. Spoon dough into bread pan and bake for roughly 20 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped with a wooden spoon.


I'd like to start this blog out by saying I love clothing in general but what I really love is lingerie. Especially when it looks like this:

What's better than cooking and adorable lingerie? I stumbled across this photo a while back while checking out the blog Frou Frou Fashionista.  If you love lingerie and beautiful photography you should definitely check it out too. 

Ah! I just love it.
