Let's be honest...
Im a 20 year old girl who has absolutely no idea what she's doing lol. This is equal parts exciting, mysterious, terrifying, and unsettling :/ But I suppose that's what being young is all about...being scared shitless, but throwing caution to the wind, and doing whatever the hell you want anyway.
"Cautionless Jenna" is what they'll call me lol.
Well it is time I bid you fairwell....
Let us begin...
(1) ELLIE GOULDING - THE END
This song is the epitome of everything....Not much else to say.
(2) ST VINCENT – THESE DAYS
Sigh…what can I say about St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) that I already haven't said? I love everything about her.
Annie is absolutely gorgeous, she has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard, her music is amazing, and she has the greatest head of curls I've ever seen. What else could you possibly want?
(3) BON IVER - FOR EMMA FOREVER AGO
I love Bon Iver. I love the clapping. I love the snapping. I love how folky the song sounds. I love the spontaneity of playing in the street in Paris for passerbys.
This is why I love music.
For all your lies - You're still very lovable...

(1) ALCOHOL AND COFFEE COMBINED MAY BE DANGEROUS
"The United States Food and Drug Administration has recently sent warning letters to four manufacturers of caffeinated alcoholic beverages, warning them that their products might be unsafe. Ever had a splash of alcohol in your coffee at Christmas? Or a dash of coffee in your alcohol to help the mince pies go down better? Apparently this could be dangerous if done to excess because caffeine reduces the symptoms of intoxication, keeping you more alert and so you may not think you are drunk when in fact you are. This could lead to you drinking more than is safe for you.
The FDA warned the companies that they may seize the products. The products in question are:
1. Charge Beverages Corp.: Core High Gravity HG, Core High Gravity HG Orange, and Lemon Lime Core Spiked. 2. New Century Brewing Co., LLC: Moonshot. 3. Phusion Projects, LLC (doing business as Drink Four Brewing Co.): Four Loko. 4. United Brands Company Inc.: Joose and Max.
The FDA decided to send warning letters to the companies after they had reviewed medical studies on the use of caffeine combined with alcohol and its effects and after they had performed a laboratory analysis of the drinks."

(2) NEW RULES FOR FOOD ALLERGIES
“Parents who have eliminated foods from their children's diets based on allergy tests alone may find that some are safe to eat after all.
The National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases issued the first clinical guidelines for diagnosing and treating food allergies Monday, saying that blood or skin tests aren't sufficient when making a diagnosis.
An allergy should be suspected if someone has a reaction within minutes or hours of eating a food, according to the guidelines. Physicians should then take a detailed medical history, conduct a physical exam and confirm the allergy with a skin-prick test, in which tiny drops of the suspected allergen are pricked into the skin, usually in the forearm, to see if red wheals form. None of those steps is definitive by itself, the recommendations say, which will likely to lead to fewer diagnoses.
For a correct diagnosis, "it takes a combination, and in some cases an oral food challenge," in which patients are exposed to tiny amounts of the suspect food under close medical supervision, says Hugh A. Sampson, director of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York and one of the authors.”

Food Curated is one of my favorite people that I’ve never met. Her videos are equally inspiring and amazing. Watching these videos reminds me of the love I have for food, and makes me believe that I chose the right career field/life path.
If you’ve never been to foodcurated.com I suggest you give it a look see! You won’t be disappointed. It’s an amazing website that is doing a wonderful job of “spreading the word” about local food in NYC.
