The Broad Museum

Finally I had the privilege to go and see the Broad museum (insert praise hand Emoji).

I waited three months to finally see it and let me tell you it was worth it. When I was still going to FIDM I had the most amazing teacher.  She taught the history of art and her name was Ms. Repetto. Many people didn’t like that class mostly because they saw no need to learn it. But they couldn’t be more wrong, because there are so many design principles to designing art. In order to create anything aesthetically pleasing you have to follow the basic design principles.

So when I went to that museum it took me back to when my teacher lectured about certain art era’s. I was blown away from the modern art they had and the pop art era. I even got to see one of the many urinals that they had made for the Dada (my personal favorite). They even featured some of the art that I studied.

Here are some photos I got to take that day. The art was so beautiful that sadly my camera couldn’t capture so I asked my boyfriend to use his incredible camera phone. The only disappointment I had was that I didn’t get to see the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room. It was already booked when we arrived in the museum and were told that it was very unlikely that we would see it.

I highly recommend you reserve tickets online and see this place in person. You won’t be disappointed 🙂

Happy Monday!

Bareburger Yelp Elite Event

Happy hump day everyone!

Yesterday I got to accompany my boyfriend to one of his Yelp Elite event.

This event was anything but ordinary. They offered us a complete meal for free, so who are we to say no. To start us off they gave us their Crispy Brussels Sprouts, which was beyond delicious. It was so good that I didn’t stop to take any photos.

After that they came over and dropped off some of their fries, onion rings and their special sauces. I highly recommend if you decide to eat their that you order a side of fries.  Personally I hate onions, I love them for favor but can’t get over their texture. But if you want to be crazy like me, you should also share some onion rings. I liked the breading they used to fry the onions. I felt like it really masked not only the favor of the onions but the texture as well.

I decided to try their Country Fair burger with my first drink being a strawberry lemonade. The country fair burger is made out of bison ground meat, aged cheddar, dill pickles, red onion, tomatoes, green leaf, mayo, and in brioche bun. The lemonade was okay, I like Hot Dog on a Stick lemonade better. As for the burger it was nothing amazing. The aged cheddar really took away from the burger completely.  My bison patty was pretty tasty, I kind of like that there was still some pink to it. Also I wanted to note that if you get weird with undercooked burgers, you probably should skip this place.

As for my boyfriend, he tried the Buckaroo burger which included beef, aged cheddar, brisket, wild mushrooms, smoke sauce and brioche bun. He also thought that his cheese and sauce overpowered the burger. What I loved was his Bourbon Smash. I usually can’t drink alcohol but I hate the strong bitter taste but this drink was crafted beautifully. All I tasted was the fruity grapefruit and I was in summer heaven. I loved it so much that I ordered that as my second free drink. My boyfriend was about to do the same when he was told that they sold out of that drink.

Once we were done we waited on our ice cream cookie sandwich to arrive. It was so soft and paired well with the ice cream. I loved that they have some chocolate sauce around the plate (perfect for dipping).

The best thing about that day were the free T-Shirts and $15 dollar gift card they gave us. I really had an awesome time and was fun taking to the two college girls that were assigned to our table. I know that I’m excited to go out and sport my new shirt!

Love,

Spring into Cleaning

Something that I look forward to ever year is Spring Cleaning!

Yes, I know that I am weird but something about cleaning out the negative energy relaxes me. It also gives me an excuse to go through everything that I have been holding on to and get rid of some old things.

This year its going to take more than a day since I’m making my bf do it too. It will be a challenge since he is a hoarder. So to make things easier for us I made a spring cleaning checklist.
