2016 has been a strange year for America but an incredible year for books. I am awe-struck by the poetry releases this year (namely: Monica Youn’s Blackacre, Safiya Sinclair’s Cannibal, and Solmaz Sharif’s Look. ) and fiction releases have been suuuuuuper exciting as well (Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad, Brit Bennett’s The Mothers). It’s raining books not written by white men! « Read the rest of this entry »

Happy birthday, America! We (my grandmother and I!) spent our holiday weekend watching orange-pink sunsets & bursts of fireworks along the beach, playing dominoes until bed time, and chatting over coffee in the morning.
Today, we’re people watching & on the lookout for more fireworks. Holy hibiscus, Ccocoa Beach is beautiful in summer!
Hope you have a Happy 4th!

The cocktail was born in Italy in 1919, but looks better than ever right now. Not that it hasn’t been cool before, you know you’re hot shit when Frederico Fellini directs a commercial celebrating you. Well, it was actually a campari commercial, but considering a Negroni would be nothing without Campari, it still seems valid to bring up. The negroni is simple: equal parts gin, Campari, and vermouth. It’s garnished with an orange peel and served in a tumbler. Bitter + a little sweet + very pretty = a summer do.
Hip, hip, hooray! It’s summer. Celebrate accordingly.
