I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm.
I'm an Aries and ENFJ by nature.
My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs.
This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurrences. Enjoy.
In the Ideal to Real TODAY/AOL Body Image survey, teenage girls revealed something unexpected: 65 percent said seeing their selfies on social media actually boosts their confidence…
The TODAY/AOL findings findings echo emerging social science on the impact of social media on self-presentation and self-image. Selfies seem inconsequential or goofy, but they can actually be incredibly important to teenagers, because they give teens a way to control the image of themselves that they’re showing to the world, experts say.
'It’s the first time you get to be the photographer and the subject of the photograph,' says Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center, who has written extensively about this subject, particularly as it applies to teenagers and/or Millennials. 'Even though that seems very simple, that’s an extraordinary shift, historically. And control makes people believe in themselves.'"
Bacon Corn Chowder: Huge batch in one pot? Allowed to work out its simmer with some cayenne and a good chunk of Old Bay? I’m done for that. As a heads up, I made this gluten free by using cornstarch instead of flour (it thickened it up a bit more too). I always use turkey bacon too because I don’t eat pig products. Recipe here.
Pineapple Mint Gin Punch: This was the perfect summer sipper the last weekend in august. I shared this one with my housemates, we all approved - a lot. Recipe here.
Pumpkin Protein Buckwheat Bake x 2: This was the first thing I made in my new ‘1 month home’ today. It made the kitchen smell lovely! Recipe here.
Besides these, I held back on my cooking. I was moving into my new housing situation. But my Father brought me a batch of gluten free baked clams from Long Island he caught last week. Plus I ate at a lovely, polish/americana themed cafe called Porta and then had a stellar local mushroom sald (with melted fontina and perfectly mixed with a lemon thyme vinagerette) at Birra. I will miss South Philly.
