time to wrap.
Still learning the terminology of the film industry, I was confused when receiving a text from V this week that said, “martini shot.” After googling the term, I realized that he was on the last shot of the day, meaning he would be home soon. Since I am still prepping the next project, I have more time to prepare dinner, but have yet to be on top of things as much as hoped. There have been many nights filled with wraps of all the components in our fridge from the farmer’s market and the quick Whole Foods trip I took the other day on the way home.
Last night I realized that the so-called martini shot can be called prematurely and had made falafel much too far in advance. It may have been that I used a mix instead of my making my own falafel, but the dinner was nothing fabulous. However, my feeling is that a little hummus and avocado can make most dishes much better.
The hot sauce helped a lot too.
When I do begin filming, I hope to still eat delicious breakfasts. This is a promise I tend to make to myself far too often, but hopefully I can stick to it this time. Call times ranging from 5am-9pm can really mess with you.
In the meantime, I have been making sure to get my whole grain breakfast fix each day.
The farmer’s market berries have been dwindling, but red and blue oats are still possible each morning. These were steel-cut oats cooked in light coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and thinly sliced banana that were then topped with raspberries, blueberries, and raw creamy almond butter. More cinnamon was poured on throughout enjoying.
Although unbearably hot out, I still prefer warm oats to the overnight variety. This was a bowl of coconut milk kefir overnight oats that I ate with melted frozen banana, coconut butter, and berries. Overnight rolled oats just don’t become as voluminous as cooked scottish or steel-cut oats. Rolled oats just don’t seem to keep me satisfied as long since discovering the others.
While glancing through my favorite costume design book, “Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design,” I ate my warm bowl of Steel Cut oats cooked in vanilla almond milk, cinnamon, and half a thinly sliced banana.
Banana and blueberries, a match made in heaven…especially with coconut butter.
A few fashion-related words:
Yesterday I ventured out for some wardrobe racks for work and while driving, I found myself so hot that I was sticking to the leather seats of my car. Although I do work with clothing, I don’t seem to put much time into what I personally wear each day. By sticking with the basics, I can have more fun with accessories. They can be taken off if cumbersome, or thrown on if I need to add a little character to my mostly simple ensemble.
Here are some things I favor in the summer….
-My seriously tall espadrilles (with the ankle straps taken out) for nights out, masai bangles, and my one favorite tiny bangle (my mother found the only bangle that doesn’t slip off my small wrist).
-All things stripes.
-Most importantly, I always carry a straw hat and my sunglasses (ray ban wayfarers or my round ones). You never know when you may need some shade and usually I am wearing at least one of them at all times.
What are your fashion staples? My summer staples are actually things I tend to wear year round, except I swap the straw hat for a more solid fedora and wear tights under my cut off denim shorts, etc. Oh, and I wear other wedges than the espadrilles, but comfort wise, wedges are the most comfortable tall shoes I own.
What is your favorite wrap combo? I love hearing about all different combos but leftovers seem to be taking over our fridge currently.
hope everyone is having a lovely week!
