Too Pretty to Eat



I was delighted when a client brought in some Dragon Fruit from Chinatown... I've always wanted to try it but did not know how to eat it!  You simply section it into wedges and peel off the fuchsia skin.  I'd say the taste is a cross between a pear and cactus (though I've never had cactus I would imagine it would taste like this hehe).  I think it is more visually stunning than it is tasty :(.

Baby Got Bracelets

I'm absolutely determined to get back on my video posting-- I've been so busy with random things for the past few weeks that I've neglected my poor blog :(.  Thank you to all of you who have posted comments on my youtube channel and blog!
Had to jump on the arm candy trend!  I'm loving the mismatched look:  quartz beads, yellow gold, and macrame friendship bracelet.
