Happy August, y'all. My favorite month. The eighth month of the year is named after Augustus Caesar, the first Emperor of the Roman Empire. The word August means of a quality inspiring mingled admiration and reverence; having an aspect of solemn dignity or grandeur; sublime; majestic; having exalted birth, character, state, or authority.

Make your August majestic. Here's a playlist for it
The mint is my garden is officially poppin'. So, as to not be wasteful, I've been doing my best to incorporate the bright and fresh herb into more dishes. This pan-roasted salmon recipe with jalapeño, mint, parsley and cilantro is easy and great for summer. Give it a shot. (Don't like salmon? The herb and pepper blend go great with all sorts of other proteins and hearty produce like cauliflower.) 

Also, check out Epicurious' list of 50 different recipes that call for the "easy, breezy herb."
Art I Like 
Donta Santistevan is a graphic designer and illustrator based in San Francisco. His recent project with Chocolate is super dope and celebrates women and summer, two wonderful things to celebrate. Check out the series on his website and peep his IG for more cool art.

Why shouldn't you play basketball with a pig? Because it'll hog the ball.
Honey is my favorite sweet. Did you know it never spoils? It can also be used to treat seasonal allergies and stomach ulcers. It's definitely a product you should try and source locally if possible. Check out some more cool facts about the delicious sweet treat

From a Friend
My friend Jordan put me on this album "Honeybloom" by Choker. It's dope and fun to paint to. Spin the album in its entirety here. And if you wanna learn more about the Michigan-based musician, here's an interview he did with P&P after the drop of his first project, "PEAK."
