Instagram: beach, food and a cute little deer

Hey! So, I have a bunch of pictures from Instagram to share, except, I’m a cheater, these aren’t all Instagram, shhh, don’t tell.

This is the dock at our beach (the little beach on the river, a five minute walk from our house)

A feather found on the beach.

This little deer (I have two) I’ve had since I was little. I keep seeing similar ones around from vintage shops or Etsy, but this one is mine haha. What I mean is that I didn’t thrift this, I’ve had it forever.

And this is a vintage Avon perfume, it was my mom’s. I have two boxes of all these old perfume/cologne bottles (with perfume still in them) that she collected. I still don’t know what I want to do with them, but there is this little honeybee one, a deer, a thermos, Thomas Jefferson’s gun, a gear shift for a car and all kinds of other things.

My new haircut. Not the best pictures, but there you go. 😀



Stinky Puppy!! I love this picture. It’s not a real Polaroid, sshhhh, but I think it came out really cool.

Food from Paladar, a Latin restaurant and rum bar. We went on Monday and it was amazing. It’s definitely added to my favorites places – along with a Mexican place, an Afghan place, Indian food from a pizza place, and tacos out of the back of a gas station, haha.

We got chips and sausa/guacamole to start, the chips were a mix of plaintain, yucca, malanga and tortilla. I loved the plantain and uhh the circle one, haha, whichever one that one was. I think malanga.

Double-Fried Smashed Plantains topped with our Slow Roasted Mojo Pork and a Fresh Radish Salad drizzled with Aji Verde

This was really really spicy but really really good!

Tender Pieces of Lamb, Cinnamon Rice Pilaf and Hominy slowly simmered in a slightly spicy Jalapeño-Cilantro Broth and topped with Crumbled Queso Fresco Cheese and our Housemade Pico De Gallo

Mojito. I dunno, this one was good, way better than others I’ve tried, but I’m not a mojito fan. But it’s definitely pretty haha.

And, just some rain drops.
