Anonymous said: What sort of engagement ring would you like one day?

Hahaha, I’ve barely been in a relationship and you’re asking me about engagement rings? Haha, my apologies for laughing, I just find it a bit funny because this is so in the distant future that I don’t know whether or not I’ll ever give some thought to the matter, let alone get engaged (haha, please don’t say “of course you’ll find someone” because I’m just being realistic). Anyhow, I inherited my grandmother’s wedding ring a decade or so ago. Maybe that one would make a nice engagement ring? I have no idea. I wish I had a mom right now so that I could ask her about these kind of things because she’d probably know. I just know that I’d really love the love bracelet from Cartier. I couldn’t think of a more romantic way to declare love for someone, not to mention that you can’t take it off without a screwdriver so it’s definitely a commitment.

Hear, hear! This is the perfect description of my friends and their traits. 

Anonymous said: Thanks for replying! I like your response and the choice of traits that you find attractive in a man - he seems to have fairly much in common with you and he seems sweet. It will probably be difficult to find someone with such a strong an affection for burgers as you haha. Or it actually won't.. there is a lot of them, but those guys will eat pretty much anything, on a bad day maybe even eat you :-D.

Haha, that’s a huge compliment. I actually know two guys who are even more obsessed with burgers than I am – and they’re also obsessed with A.P.C. too, especially raw denim jeans lol. Too bad they’re already taken (just kidding, they’re buddies!).

Thanks, you’re pretty fucking cool too!

Anonymous said: hey, do you keep track of your burger adventure anywhere else than on instagram?

Yes. I have an album on Facebook that I update regularly, lol. Feel free to check it out here. I was also working on a burger blog last year but that was right before my mom passed away, and I haven’t worked on it ever since.

Yup. I use VSCO cam, Afterlight, Snapseed.. I adjust the brightness, contrast, sharpness, and add filters. 

Anonymous said: I'm visiting Paris in a couple of weeks and thought you would be a good person to ask for food / restaurant recommendations! (Preferably ones with vegetarian options, if you know of some.) Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Hello! Most of the restaurants I go to in Paris are meat-based but if I remember correctly The Broken Arm, Rose Bakery, Candelaria, Le Marché des Enfants Rouges, Nanashi, and Big Fernand (burgers) have vegetarian options. In fact, I almost only eat burgers whenever I go to Paris or dine at home because my family lives there.
