tomato avocado tortilla.

Lately I've been eating this non-stop. Every night I crave it. 

It's pretty simple, but extremely delicious.

Olive Oil
Grated Cheese (I prefer Mozzarella)
Grape or Cherry Tomatoes
Salt & Pepper 
Head a skillet/pan thing (I don't know what they're called) on the stove with some olive oil. Heat up one side of the tortilla, then flip it and place grated cheese on one half and fold over. Continue heating torilla as desired (I prefer softer, but some I know like it crunchier.)
Remove tortilla from heat, and open to let cheese cool off.
Place on as much sliced tomatoes and avocado has desired.
Add salt & pepper
Fold back over and eat

It's seriously so good. And is so light and fresh. (perfect for summer....too bad that's ending.) And takes less than 5 minutes.

And if I'm a little more hungry, I cook an egg and add it to the tortilla. Equally as delicious.

"If New York is for you, nothing else will do. The beauty, the excitement, the friction. The thrill of mastery - not simply navigating the subway system, for instance, but knowing exactly where to get on a train so that, when you reach your destination and get off, you are exactly opposite the exit. I can't tell you how good that makes me feel, that I know something no one else knows except another New Yorker. Mostly, however, loving New York is personal: the validation of identity. New Yorkers are born all over the country and then they come to the city and it strikes them: Oh, this is who I am."
          - Delia Ephron

Have you watched The Leftovers? I got bored by it. But the music is phenomenal and easily the best part of the show. Here are a few of the songs by Max Richter, who creates some great piano melodies. Look up all his work on Spotify for a great listen.

emmy 2014.

I stayed up late last night to get this post of up for people I know look forward to it.

The Emmy's were last night. Did you know? A Monday. What? I know. But nevertheless they happened. Breaking Bad won big. Modern family won yet again. Sherlock did well. There were some laughs. And some amazing dresses.

While last year was much more colorful, this year was more muted. It was a sea of red and white mostly. And for the most part, everyone looked pretty great.

My two favorites:

Lena Headley + Heidi Klum
While Heidi's dress made me literally gasp out loud when I saw it she looks so stunning (Zac Posen, the designer, referred to it as a coral angel), I'm obsessed with Lena looks. She was my #2 fav look last year, so she's holding strong. Can I just be her?

Second two favorite:

Natalie Domer + Sarah Hyland
I love the color blocks of these two. They're both perfect.

Strapless red:

January Jones + Kaley Cuoco + girl from Orange is the New Black + Gulianna 
it's like, no, no, no, and no. and January's hair? WTF. Her bangs were wet upon arrival. 
(I acutally like Kaley's dress, but with her hair short it was not flattering at all.)

Drappy red:

Minnie Driver + Julia Louie+Dryfus + Mindy Kaling + girl from Game of Thrones
I love all but Mindy's. something is off about that one. I love the far right dress the most. 

 photo emmys19_zps655c7f6e.jpg
Christina Hendricks + Claire Danes + Octavia Spencer
for once I didn't hate Claire's dress. 

Strapless Whites:

Julianne Hough + girl from Orange is the New Black + don't know + Sofia Vergara
Oh Julianne, I love you but no. and is it really fair to put anyone next to Sofia? 

V cut whites:

girl form Downton Abbey + Kristen Wiig + girl from Orange is the New Black + Lucy Liu
they look like angels. 

More white:

girl who I can't remember and don't care to look up + Kate Mara + girl from Orange is the New Black 
I aspire to be more like Kate Mara. 

 photo emmys14_zpsdf7fa1df.jpg
girl from Orange is the New Black + Rose Leslie + Christine Baranski
Christine looks amazing, and that dress is gorgeous. 

bright blue:

Bernadette from Big Bang Theory + Edie Falco + Amy from Big Bang Theory
Well done Bernadette. 

 photo emmys13_zps0323e41f.jpg
Lizzy Caplan + girl from Orange is the New Black + Melissa McCarthy
Lizzy looks incredible. 

 photo emmys10_zpsf632db96.jpg
Jessica Pare + Kate McKinnono + Julianna Margulies
Kate and Julianna looked amazing. 

 photo emmys11_zps81ad9d49.jpg
Julia Roberts + Sarah Silverman + Debra Messing
Debra's dress might be my 3rd favorite. It's stunning. 

white and some color;
 photo emmys7_zps03a2e200.jpg
Taissa Farmiga + Julie Bowen + Kelly Osbourne
mixed feelings on all the above. 

 photo emmys9_zps0bcca8f9.jpg
Michelle Dockery + Allison Williams + Anna Gunn
Allison is literally one of the most beautiful people ever always. 

color perhaps gone wrong:
 photo emmys6_zps9b3ad451.jpg
girl I'm not sure who is + Betsy Brant + Cat Deely
meh to all, but Cat always looks amazing. 

bold color:
 photo emmys8_zps367b8674.jpg
Kerry Washington + Emily Deschanel + Allison Janning 
Kerry looked amazing. So few can pull of orange. 

 photo emmys5_zps3bec4b47.jpg
girl from Orange is the New Black + Katherine Heigel + Taylor Schilling 

 photo emmys4_zps357472a1.jpg
Amy Pohler + Kiernan Shipka + Hayden P
I aspire to look like Hayden if ever pregnant. 

 photo emmys_zps8458d86c.jpg
Lena Dunham + don't know + Laura Pepron 
There's really no words for Lena's dress, it seemed to keep growing throughout the night. 

 photo guys_zpsb5a2c388.jpg
Johnny Galecki + Kit Harington + Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
May I present a progression of how to wear a suit from bad to good - dress as though you completely don't care; so close but just taylor those pants (love you forever though, Kit); dress like Nikolaj and become perfection.

The couples:

Because there can't be a person in the world who doesn't think Aaron Paul and his wife are the cutest thing ever + Matthew Mcwhatever's suit is everything + Seth our Host's suit looks just as sharp. Well done.
