I DO WHAT I WANT: THE MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM EDITION

THIS RECIPE IS THE TITS. What’s more magnificent than producing mountains of pale mint ice cream in the comfort of your own house? Possibly while streaming all of Twin Peaks, as we are wont to do, come every September. (Why is it such a fall show for us? We think it’s all the pine trees, obviously, and Lara Flynn Boyle’s definitely an autumn.) Anyway, you’re going to make this and it’s so simple. There’s no salt, no churning, no equipment, really, other than a handmixer. Do it this weekend, warrior! Blow your own mind.

Orson Welles called her “the most exciting woman in the world.” As television’s second Catwoman in 1967, she shocked the world with her smoldering sex appeal and delighted, malevolent mischief. She spoke English and French, and cut a disco record in 1984 that went gold.

This week, we’re all about being above the hair game; it’s just one of those low-key, loosely-locked, fresh-faced moments when domestic and professional bliss are more important than the perfect coif. That said, why can’t we have it all?

YELLOW BELLIED

Are we being too clingy with the sun? The lackluster weather this summer seems like a big ol’ snub. We keep trying to worship it, court it, pay homage to it, but no goddamn dice. Possibly our obsession with skincare has caused it to give us the cold shoulder, but dang. It’s been chilly.

ANYWAY, this warm, lemony bowl of turmeric-scented cauliflower is a souper fast, seven ingredient dish that’s perfect for fading into fall.

SUMMER SALES: THE AMERICAN DREAM

Here’s the cover of the Saturday Evening Post commemorating Labor Day sixty years ago. If you’re anything like us, the general vibe of your Labor Day weekend hasn’t changed much. We’re all about jumping into a lake, eating food off of a long wooden table, and rubbing elbows and clinking glasses and shooting off fireworks with good-looking picnickers in a bunch of denim. The American dream. Or an American dream.

FRESHLY BAKED SNACK MIX AND EIGHT HOURS OF TELEVISION

image

Even though we’re still in the last flush of summer, we’re seeing pumpkin beer everywhere (TOO SOON), and people are talking about game day snacks, cookies shaped like footballs, stadiums made out of cheese cubes and ham roll-ups and while this is all fantastic, we’re slightly miffed that football gets all the glory and the snacks, and no one’s making enormous trays of homemade spicy chex mix and bragging about binge-watching every series on Netflix. Until now.

SLEEP SPRAY: HOW TO AROMATHERAPY AT HOME

image

We had a lightning bolt to the brain the other day when we were slathering on all the new booty from our favorite local apothecary, Town and Anchor. Their facial cleanser is so lush and makes us feel tender and pampered. Between our recent trouble sleeping and the effects of all the natural oils hydrating our tired ass faces, we thought, DAMN THIS WOULD MAKE AN AWESOME PILLOW SPRAY. So we had a look-see and decided the night was right for a little DIY.

Nothing makes us feel more back to school than new shoes, and nothing says back to school shoes more than the black leather winklepickers of our imagined 80s London adolescence.
