Secret Lunch

Food, Lifestyle August 10, 2012


Cigars and I found a new restaurant today…one I have been forbidden to mention by name. Our first course consisted of pretzel bread and an amazing mustard seed butter. You haven’t had butter until you’ve had mustard seed butter.


Next, we had some über fresh veggies still on the stalk. They offered us some great sauce but we didn’t even need it.
Finally, I had this deliciously sweet and savory grilled cheese sando with a gourmet tomato soup. Hmmm if I get the go ahead I’ll let you guys know this super secret location.

Wedded Bliss!

I promised more pictures of the wedding and here they are.  This is our lovely bride, Rachel.  Her gown was lace with a nude underly and delicate train.  The veil trailed behind her and featured a similar lace pattern. 



Us brides maids tried to get into the act and shoot some pictures as we were acting as creative directors for her professional shoot.  I just couldn’t resist posing next to this, working, canon. Then Sasha and I are pictured in front of Kalmar Castle and the moat…I was waiting for a dragon sighting.  Then this is the bride and her uncle, Mark, as her aunt Linda, fixed her dress for pictures.  



Since Sasha and I creative direct and style for a living we figured our talents needed to cross the pond.  So, here are just some of the shots I captured on my iphone, just guess how breathtaking the professional shots are.  I can’t wait to see them. 



Joe & the Juice

Food, travel August 1, 2012

Normally, airports make me tired and frustrated that was until I went through CPH, Copenhagen airport.  Yikes, amazing!  I spent most of my time in the Duty Free Store, which was huge and a juice bar called JOE & THE JUICE.  The ambiance was trendy and hip, the music was loud and current, the staff was adorable (I almost wanted to stay in Denmark just for them), and oh yea the juice was fresh and delish.  I had a drink called Stress Down-strawberry, apple, and ginger.  Ugh, I need a J&tJ fix soo bad I may start a franchise.
