    Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when the ladies of HonestlyWTF teamed up with Karen Chan of GlobetrotterDiaries and Todd Wagner of Baytenders to launch an equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything.

Also, I sprinkle the corn with Tajin, a chile pepper and lime seasoning available at most Mexican markets in the fruit aisle. I put it on just about everything from watermelon to cucumbers to jicama.

Guaranteed, these will be gone the minute you finish assembling them. RELATED: Day Of The Dead Mexican Fiesta
