Radishes are the new roses. Carrots kick carnation butt. And who needs blossoms when there’s beautiful beets on the table (the leaves are edible too….)


Giving a lady a bouquet of fresh flowers is a standard courtship ritual.  But next time, why not ask for a bouquet of fresh veggies instead? Pretty to look at, healthy to eat and almost as costly as fresh flowers.  (Those organic carrots from the farmer’s market cost 4 bucks a bunch!)


Produce is the ecological, recession-friendly way to show he cares. (Even better, he gets to eat them too.)

    Graciously modeling for the photo are Yoojung Kim and Anton Nazarko, the hottest Montreal couple going. Graphic designers, photographers, clothing makers and students of all things beautiful, I hope these two will model again for me soon.

    Check out Yoojung’s blog, for a well-curated tour of the season’s hottest purses.

    Don’t they make veggies look so sexy?
