I’ve been on a few top secret missions lately, which only now have the authority to discuss.
The first one is that I’ve been trying to replicate a salad I had at Nordstrom Cafe a few months ago (and every month since). It’s with arugula, shrimp, corn and petite tomatoes. I think I finally nailed it! (Grilled shrimp raises the degree of difficulty)
The second involves an effort to break my bagel-a-day habit (toxic, I know). I’ve been perfecting a morning smoothie that actually fills me up for more than 6.8 seconds (talking to you, all-fruit smoothies). Here is the recipe that I designed, tested, and retested myself. You’re welcome:
I never use my phone for legit photos, but I tried out the pano feature and I’m basking in my iPhone mediocrity:
Have you heard of StyleWe? Great dresses! I’m broke as a joke until after Christmas but eventually am going to have to purchase something. There are some unique items at good prices.
I came across this sign outside a restaurant…
Weak. Excuse us working folk. I found another place to eat (I know you were worried).
This is for my fellow running friends. ShoeKicker is a website that features an aggregator, listing where to buy your favorite sneaks at the cheapest price. It doesn’t help those who actually go to the store and get fitted, but if you’re like me and you are brand loyal (HOLLLAAAA at my Brooks!), then you already know what you want and what fits. It’s still in Beta so you know it’s only going to get better!
I’ve been blonde for about a year but I totally forgot to tell you about a funny incident from that time! My hair is very dark, so attempting to transform it to blonde is nothing short of asking for a miracle. I wasn’t surprised at all when they unveiled the new hair, I was sporting the Wynonna Judd look. (That’s cherry red you see above) At that point, I thought they’d just shave the whole damn thing, but my hair survived another bleach! Since then I’ve found a brilliant stylist and we lived happily ever after!
I’m sure she’ll be thrilled that I’ll be sporting Christmas and New Year’s parties with my two inch
brown, gray, white roots.
Have an awesome and safe holiday, blog peeps!
