Knoxville Fashion Week is certainly no competition for New York Fashion Week. They have a long way to go before even reaching the level of Nashville Fashion Week. It was a little disorganized and too casual to be taken seriously. If they booked more designers instead of just brands (ahem, Buckle and Tommy Hilfiger?), it would go over better.
Gage Modeling and Talent Agency kicked off KFW on Wednesday night at G&G Interiors.

It’s amazing how easy it is to substitute any of the above foods for bread, pasta, or flour. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate healthy foods into my diet and put a spin on traditional recipes. Thank God Trader Joe’s exists to provide quirky foods and recipes that satisfy my curiosity! My latest venture, courtesy of the Joe? Quinoa Risotto with Shiitake Mushrooms. Continue reading
After shying away from this recipe for months, I finally faced Julia Child’s Eggplant Pizza, adapted by Kayln’s Kitchen. Julia may have been all about the pasta and bread, but she knew how to make some darn good gluten-free, vegan dishes too. Continue reading
I’ve been so busy this week I almost forgot THE event of the year starts today: New York Fashion Week! I was mostly inspired by NYFW for my Friday Five today. Maybe this will make up for my lack of posts this week? Anyway, enjoy the weekend! I’ll be taking it easy and trying to rest as much as my schedule will allow…
