Americans’ Snacking Habits

I spent around eight hours (yesterday and today) on figuring out to how best to present this data and then executing my vision. I knew very little about Photoshop before I started this job, but now I’ve gained a good amount of experience in it–just by visualizing what I want and then Googling for tutorials to see if I can make it come true.

Just-For-Dad Restaurant Specials

I spent a good chunk of this week (and last week) contacting PR people to get images for this Father’s Day gallery, writing it up, and then assembling it. A lot of the deals involve steak and beer, haha (Hey! Moms like steak and beer too!). Continue reading

When I was walking near Columbus Circle this morning, two women from Green & Black’s on the street gave me chocolates and an info card (excuse the bandage; I cut myself on a tuna can and aluminum foil while cooking last night 😦 ). I’ve noticed the company’s signs along the 59th St. subway station walls too. Maybe this area has their main target demographic? It’s a British chocolate company. I’ve never heard of it until recently.

The chocolate was good. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate (and I don’t enjoy white chocolate), so I lucked out with getting dark chocolate with sea salt. And I like their watercolor-esque wrapping.
