A post with food and shoes and other things that are good

Oh, hello Monday. You're looking surprisingly good today!

Monday means entering the last week of insane stress from hell before we're off to Japan again, and i'm feeling pretty good about that.
Not about being stressed of course, but about finally being able to see the results of our hard work.
Just a few more days, and we should be getting to the fun part. Not that the journey hasn't been a good one, cause it has, but that doesn't mean you can't look forward to it ending!
Thursday we're driving to Germany in my parents car with a bunch of paintings for the art show, and there's still a lot to be done, so i'm actually gonna get off the computer now, and try to figure out how best to spray paint yet another bunch of frames while it's crazy stormy outside!

On Saturday we worked (Sunday too), but on the way there i convinced Allan to go shoe shopping with me. It's been so long, i'd forgotten how, so i needed backup and my husband is surprisingly good at shopping for insane heels!

From the instagrams
(1. Spring at Conspiracy Inc. means planting flowers in the pots outside the shop! 2. My two (two!) giant shoe boxes... i couldn't decide! 3. Pair number one, Foxy, just like the ones my indian chick by Electric Pick is wearing 4. It finally happened; we finished Deep Space Nine, but that topic is gonna need a post of its own 5. I made some kimono fabric covered headbands with huge chrysanthemums and tiny lacquered origami cranes 6. The other pair; black suede Lita's)

Last nights healthy dinner: an almost perfect omelet and a salad made from whatever-was-in-my-fridge

 It was actually pretty great, so i'll post the recipe for that further down

I'm trying to break these in, cause i wanna wear them this coming weekend, so i wear them around the house in the morning!

Me and Lucifer walked to work... the weather looks so innocent and not windy at all, but it's windy alright!

Ok, so the salad was just steamed green beans, chopped cabbage and arame, and it was served with Japanese goma dressing. So good!
Remember to soak the dried arame in cold water for about 15 minutes and drain it well after, and it's good to go!
This could have used a bit of goma shio, but i'm all out. But hey, i'll be in Japan soon enough, so no complaints here.


  1. Love the shoes and your leg tattoos are fab! And Japan again? What are you guys up to this time?

  2. The color of the leather on your new shoes is so pretty, and I love that they're open-toed T-straps. I want to wear some with stripe-y socks! My friend Annie and I used to live together and she'd always break her new shoes in around the house... once I woke up around 9AM and went to the kitchen, and she'd just returned from the gym. She was still wearing her gym shorts and sports bra but she was walking around the kitchen in her brand new shoes, ha. People don't know how much work we put into what we wear sometimes! 

  3.  The last trip was a short one, so this time we're staying a month. Should be good!

  4.  It's the best color, and they look great with socks!
    I've been Annie for a few days now, it really is amazing how much work is required just to wear friggin shoes.

  5. As with any new shoe, there is a “get to know you period” especially when it comes to running, but, for everything from jumping rope to box jumping to hiking outside with the kids, I can honestly tell you these shoes feel fantastic.

  6. I am so interested in your writing and the shoes are so beautiful. I like it very much.Thank you for sharing it.

  7. Thanks, i love them too!
