cleaning out my closet

Busy, busy day. Spent the whole day going to class, cleaning out my closet, taking pictures and updating a separate blog for things I'm selling. Yep, I caved and created SHOP BLUSHING AMBITION. Most of the things are vintage finds that I've acquired over the years so it's definitely worth a look. Right now I have a couple sweaters, cardigans, blouses, and blazers for sale. Here's a navy blazer with gold buttons that is up for grabs:

FIND THIS AND MORE AT SHOP BLUSHING AMBITION

Oh, and today I finally ventured out to my local overpriced *ahem* organic market and realized how much I hate to love it. For lunch I made a toasted onion and poppyseed bagel sandwich with slices of smoked ham from the deli, havarti cheese, a couple grape tomatoes on the side, and the best mayonnaise I've ever tasted. I have a crazy obsession with mayo which is strange considering that Pika has a mayo phobia. I guess that's just one thing we'll never agree on, hmph. Not going to lie, I picked up the bottle of Kewpie just because it was from Japan and ridiculously adorable but its taste blew me away. It's even better than homemade mayo! I heard it's because of the MSG... oh dear.

Love the outfit/the blazer. Totally about to check out your "shop" :). Also, as usual after reading your posts, I am now wicked hungry..

Katt said...

ha ha I'm Japanese and my mom slathers Kewpie mayo on tomatoes and sometimes uses it as salad dressing on lettuce. . . Maybe that's why I'm not such a fan of mayo in general. Got to love the packaging though.

Mel said...

Mmm I love mayo, but I've never had Kewpie mayo! I definitely have to try that! I think I put mayo on too many things...hot dogs, fries, asparagus, you name it!

KEWPIE MAYO IS THE BEST. Funny how a little naked doll that i used to dress up and play with her during my baths has turned into a MAYO MASCOT.

Cutest.Mayo.Ever!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

I was just squeezing a bottle of that stuff at MY local organic store mere hours ago. The packaging freaks me out. I for one have a love hate relationship with mayo: LOVE it on blt's and in tuna fish sandwiches, HATE it everywhere else! Especially on potato salad, how could you do that to the innocent potato????

Michelle Yue said...

The really good ones control the temperature of the water to within a few degrees of what is considered optimum. An infrared heater works like the sun which is not always better. Hand washing is a very time consuming task and this needs your time and energy. The looks of these appliances are highly elegant and stunning. With a reusable air filter, less is actually more.
