Nutella & Bourbon Babka

Remember when Jerry & Elaine had to get the “lesser babka” – the cinnamon one – because the last, greater babka – the chocolate one – was sold right in front of them? It was the first thing I thought of when this Sandwich-inspired Babka article was recently published in a Lucky Peach newsletter. I thought to myself: what would […]

Blackberry Cheesecake Puffs

This Thanksgiving, I decided to be the pâtissier for our family gathering.  One of the quick and delicious dessert ideas I came up with was the following Blackberry Cheesecake Puffs. You only need a few simple ingredients: Puff pastry (I just used the packaged sheets available in the freezer section at most grocers), cream cheese, granulated […]

We Put On (Real) Pants Today

Once upon a time, I was sixteen and wrote my college application essays about how I wanted to study economic development at UC Berkeley so I could start a minimalist apparel line with priorities of social consciousness and ecological consciousness in production.  Then, I could share my love for fashion & design with the world, while providing new […]

Huckleberry Travel Guide: Magical Santorini

This is a very overdue post! But my darlin’ friend Carlina & I have decided to buckle down on our content posting schedules, so I’m making it a priority. We took a very spontaneous trip to Greece last month (August 2016) and one of the wildest things I learned was that Greece has over 6,000 islands – […]

Prawn Saganaki

Post-vacation depression is:  The. Worst. Mostly because, Sweetheart, everyday life is so far from sunshine, beaches and rosé all day – especially if you live in the SF Bay Area. But, more on that later. I recently returned from two weeks in Greece where I adventured to different parts of the islands of Mykonos and Santorini on the […]

Minimalist Packing for the Fashion Girl

Alright, for context, currently, I am sipping a cup of coffee while wearing embossed-leather platform booties – with track soles, leather leggings – high-waisted, a cashmere poncho – fringed, a faux fur stole, translucent large-framed glasses and a matte lip colour – “Spice”.  It’s Thursday.  When I got dressed this morning, I was feeling very […]

DIY Marble Top Table

I recently moved into a new place and have been searching for the #allTheThings and was absolutely thrilled when I found the Eames DCMs in Navy (similar) pictured below.  These babes have been my dream dining chairs for sometime so I was happy to commit to them without yet having a table in mind… plus, I’ve […]

Fresh New Start: How to Go Platinum Blonde from Dark Hair DIY

I’ve gone platinum blonde once before; previously, I had decided to for 2 reasons: I was turning 25 and wanted to have pink/purple hair before being officially in my “mid-twenties” Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I wanted to dress up as Sia for that Halloween I went to my stylist in the East Village; it took […]

A Huckleberry Coco Loco Recipe

I heard coconuts are really good for you.  I’m not sure if it still counts if you add the below accoutrements…but I’m still counting the 10 coconuts I’ve consumed in the last week towards my health goals. My favorite tropical cocktail the “Coco Loco” is usually made by blending an array of spirits (rum, tequila, vodka) […]
