I’ve spent a good amount of my time over the past few days drooling at the thought of crunchy, texture-y, crispy foods. It’s funny how the second you tell me I have to subsist on soup, even though I sometimes go whole weeks of eating just that, it suddenly seems like the worst thing in the world. To divert my attention, I’ve been catching up on recent magazines, ogling food blogs, and watching numerous episodes of Netflix’s new series, House of Cards. As a DC gal with a journalism background, I just can’t get enough — deception, corruption, sex, politics, it’s all there!

A few of my favorite ad campaigns and trends from the {gigantic} recent issue of Vogue and a few of the most texture-laden recipes I’ve been eyeing…

Any soup recipe suggestions to sustain my liquid diet for a few more days?
