Remember that How I Met Your Mother episode where we learned that Marshall Eriksen spent a good chunk of his NYC years trying to find The Best Burger In New York? The one he ate when he first moved there? I’m not going to tell you that the Impossible Burger at Gott’s Roadside was the Marshall burger, because we all have our The Best Burger in New York story (and because you’re not going to believe me until you taste it.) But I’ll tell you this - the Impossible, genius of a patty is the cleanest (nutrients wise), healthiest, and the least disastrous (for the environment and cows both) burger you’ll ever eat. Fun fact: Bill Gates invested in this Redwood City-based startup for the third time this year.
It doesn’t include any artificial ingredients or hormones. According to the Impossible Foods website, the patty uses 95% less land, 74% less water, and creates 87% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to a regular hamburger patty. I took mine without the sauce, cheese, or butter to make it completely dairy-free!
I’ve never tasted meat so I can’t tell you how and if it compares to the real thing, but I can guarantee that it is absolutely scrumptious!!! Go on, give it a whirl at one of the many locations across the Bay Area and New York.
Jumping on the bandwagon is hardly my thing, you know that. But three trends I haven't been able to resist are ruffled blouses, off the shoulder tops, and denim skirts. However, I'm your average girl who doesn't live a glamorous life 24x7, so I thought I'd make a quick video to show you how to embrace a great fashion trend without getting out of your jammies. All you need to master is three fashion editor's tucking techniques; in order of my outfits:
• Middle tuck: Works great for off-the-shoulder blouses and slouchy sweaters, that way the silhouette doesn't look loose top to bottom and it accentuates your waist
• Full tuck: Perfect when your pajama-outfit needs a little seriousness, more so with a slinky/ short blouse and high-waisted pants
• Half tuck: Literally works with any button-down shirt and pants (trousers, jeans, skirts, shorts) and is a sure-shot way to avoid look too prim or formal

Big shoutout to Neptune's Coffee, a new eatery and my favorite lounge + work spot in good ole' Alameda.
