riveting rooms | bathroom edition

Do you read the Amber Interiors blog? I love her point of view and some of my favorite interiors are from her blog.  Besides the amazing rugs and pillows she incorporates into the houses she designs, she also uses amazing tile.  The floor in this bathroom blew my mind. Check out her post for the rest of the house. PS-she has a shoppe where you can buy those rugs and pillows. (!!!) photo via Amber...

good eats | homemade granola

At the beginning of September, I discovered that grains and I aren’t friends.  It wasn’t a fun realization. As someone who loves food and especially loves all forms of grains (no more bread or pasta. %*&$), it was depressing.  However, I can’t deny how much better I feel since eliminating them from my diet.  I’ve been cautiously experimenting with recipes and this granola is the first successful endeavor and it’s DELICIOUS.  I’ll be making double batches in the future. homemade granola INGREDIENTS: 1...

Between the DC Wise event, out of town guests, a show at the 9:30 Club and work, this week has gone by at warp speed.  I’m happy it’s Friday even though it means my work week is beginning instead of ending. How was your week? I’m always on the hunt for affordable art and Amber Interiors has some great resources. Cupcakes and Cashmere has tips about how to make a cheap bottle of wine taste amazing. I’m having a dinner party next week and I’m tempted to make these pumpkin spiced peanut butter cups.  Or maybe...

thank you!

Last night’s Mad Men themed party and silent auction was a roaring success.  We raised $26,000 (!!!!) for N St. Village, threw a fantastic event (hello photo booth with props..always a highlight) and everyone had fun.  Most importantly, the money we raised will help many women at N St. Village. I personally would like to thank Cork Wine Bar for donating a wine tasting for 4 and Ford’s Theatre for donating tickets for their new winter play, The Widow Lincoln and a Ford’s Theatre membership.  To all my wonderful friends,...

my favorite happy hours | 14th St., NW

my favorite happy hours | 14th St., NW

I love happy hour.  I like to meet friends early, have a few cocktails, discuss random topics (are you watching American Horror Story Freak Show????  Eiiiieeh!) and get home at a reasonable hour. There’s lots of happy hours on 14th St. but below are my favorites. Barcelona Wine Bar is a chain with locations throughout Connecticut and in Atlanta. Generally, I don’t like chains but this one is clever.  It has a wonderful patio and decent Spanish tapas.  They recently started offering happy hour from 4-6pm.  Go early..this place is popular...
