valhalla brooklyn

there was a point in my life where bags were to me what shoes are to some women – i usually couldn’t pass up buying one. but i’ve been using the same leather bag for the past 3 years (quality over quantity, eh?) and don’t really plan on trading it in until it falls apart at the seams. that being said, i’m pretty sure i could be swayed by valhalla brooklyn

i just died and went to vintage opel heaven

ooooh i spent way too much time yesterday perusing this collection of pics from a vintage opel calendar. WHY don’t car companies still make awesome stuff like this? now it’s just these flashy photos of big shiny black cars cruising along with light beams flashing past them and what what. BORING. i want to see my car in fields of lavender and reflected in some pristine lake in switzerland. WITH PEOPLE. who are dressed nicely.

roast red pepper & tomato soup

i’ve been making a lot of soups lately  – even though it’s unbearably hot here right now. they’re cheap to make, i can freeze the leftovers (which end up tasting even nicer a few weeks/months down the line when you reheat them), you can eat them hot or cold, and there is little to no margin for error. i mean, it’s soup – toss it in and let it simmer.

so yesterday i made a roast red pepper & tomato soup. i didn’t follow a recipe, i basically had a bag of rosa tomatoes that needed to be used and were too ripe & soft for a salad – and winged it from there.
