Kaleidoscope Cafe & colorful outfit

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

I went to Kaleidoscope Cafe a few weeks ago with friends.  Great things about it include:

– it’s a BYOB

– there are kaleidoscopes on the table (did you know you can take a pic of the kaleidoscope through your phone?)

– the food and service are amazing

– the atmosphere is relaxed

– there is a cool mural on the exterior

– it’s locally owned

I split the large Autumn Harvest Salad with a friend as an appetizer. I enjoyed the salad other than the dressing which was too tart for me.  For my entree I ordered the Classic Pasta Marinara which was also tasty.  The three of us girls split a lemon cake slice for dessert.

I bought red denim pants this weekend.  As soon as I tried them on I was visualizing outfits to put together with these new bottoms.  Here is an example of what I’m brewing…it seems a bit inspired by the kaleidoscope mural and bold colors through the peephole.

*a note on earrings – I like big earrings but they have to be lightweight.  I am not trying to gage my ears anytime soon.

Please excuse the iPhone snapshots.  I’ll get back to some fancy photos tomorrow.

Now for some links to great articles/images from around the web:

Apartment Therapy: the simple beauty of vintage mirrors

I wanted to post the Anthony Bourdain interview I read in the new Men’s Journal while on the elliptical tonight, but alas, like so many magazines, they neglect to keep their websites current with their paper publications.  I predict this will change as consumers demand more cohesion across formats.

Centsational Girl’s post combines my love of wine, animal prints, enjoyment giving gifts and fantasy of becoming a great seamstress.

Will higher ed be the next bubble to burst?  I find the “don’t get an MBA” argument interesting and I’m in the target audience deciding whether or not to get an MBA.

Lastly, how is everyone’s Christmas and Holiday shopping going?  I am well underway with shopping and wrapping.  I am looking forward to finishing up my gift purchases so I can sit back, relax, and envision the smiles my gifts will bring.
