Chicago, you look so beautiful today. I will miss you dearly…
having your 3 lookbooks separately mentioned on NPR, Glamour Magazine’s website, + New York Magazine’s website in one day.
Yes, this is me tooting my own horn. Loudly. (Don’t be gross.)
Our latest lookbook is alive, as of 5 minutes ago… I’m really excited about this one, as it deals with my favorite thing ever: food!
Today, we launched 3 Buck Bites, an online food porn paradise of sorts for frugal foodies. Times are tough, but discerning palettes have to stay distinguished! So why not bring everyone the best food deals across the country for $3.99 and under?
Check it out, and perhaps submit your own! I had a lot of fun photographing + writing my bites. You’ll see them sooner than later…I will say though that creating this site made me super hungry. You can only stare at dumplings, banh bao + a fish taco from “The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada” for so long before laying in a pile of drool and pity, ya know.
- Matt: Perhaps I want to collect [insert not-so-innocent person here]
- Angeline [5: 10 PM]: he's used. slightly frayed around the edges, but his laundry smells nice?
- Matthew [5: 10 PM]:
- so I should trade my MVP for him?
- Angeline [5: 11 PM]:
- I would say he's worth at least a chicken dinner.
i’m a little bit stressed on the moving in two-ish weeks deal. when you look at a map, the country looks daunting yet so conquerable.
i haven’t done this much statewide traveling in a very long time…i’ve had 2 memorably crazy drives in my lifetime.
one was the week before i graduated college. lauren and i were out of our gourds and drove 7 1/2 hours at 3am from atlanta to orlando because we wanted to go to disney world. there were times when i thought we wouldn’t make it, but what do you know…we did make it. we made it all the way to the mgm studios parking lot and hopped on the aerosmith rock ‘n rollercoaster ride. we rode the tower of terror multiple times, and dammit, it was awesome.
another was last march. it was after sxsw on the way back to chicago. 21 freaking hours straight. i am sure there were plenty of times in the van where i thought that my life was going to be over. i never thought i would drive through places like arkadelphia, arkansas. when we left austin, it was 90 degress. coming from la, i totally forgot places like chicago were still cold in march. i stood in my t-shirt, no warm clothes and watched it snow when we drove up greta’s mom’s driveway. on that journey, i managed to pick up habits like not wearing makeup and losing articles of clothing in hotels. dear whoever found my sweet hoodie and marc jacobs t-shirt: i hope you enjoyed them. i also learned how to live for weeks with stuff in just a carry on suitcase.
if you ever have the chance to spend most of your time in a moving vehicle, i suggest you do it solely to see how crazy it will make you. i’ve pretended to give birth at a rest stop somewhere in alabama, eaten waffle house four meals in a row in 3 different states (ew), watched someone puke in their hands next to me (ew again), planned entire routes around whole foods locations and have seen a lot of this great country.
it’s been pretty nice.
