Today is gonna be a random brain dump. School got canceled yet again for today. This is turning into the longest Winter break ever. I am craving getting back in a routine and set schedule hopefully that happens Wednesday:) These guys have really enjoyed the snow though and break from school. Lots of lazy mornings.
Sterling has been all about relaxing:)
Sunday night I had a few neighbors over for happy hour. I made this cheese plate- it made me think would you guys still like an entire post dedicated to creating a charcuterie board? I will work on that!
Two recent outfits. I have been living in leggings and casual wear the past few days.
This is the vest I keep raving about, love it so much. I also just ordered these wireless ear buds and have been loving them.
My skin has been crazy dry lately and these two products have been game changers. A girl at Sephora recommended both to me and they work wonders on dry skin. I have been doing the mask a few times a week and my skin feels so nourished and hydrated afterwards. The eye cream also works great, I use it morning and night. It apparently helps brighten under eye circles so fingers crossed it works.
Picked up a new orchid from Trader Joes for our den. The agate frame to the left was one of my favorite Christmas gifts.
I have been really into listening to podcasts lately. Someone turned me onto The Skinny Confidential and I am obsessed. It is a podcast hosted by Layern Everts Bosstick (also a blogger) and her husband. They interview various people in the health, beauty, fitness, and social media businesses. Every podcast I have listened to has been amazing and I have learned so much. A few favorites : Dr Dennis Gross, B Well By Kelly, and the The F Factor.
After listening to the F Factor podcast, I became really interested in adding more fiber to my diet. The F Factor diet stresses eating enough fiber every day and how important it is as an aid in weight loss. They talk about these “GG Crackers” so I ordered some to try. They have 8 grams of fiber and are supposed to also help suppress your appetite. Let me be clear they really don’t have any taste at all, but I did feel full after eating them. I have yet to find the crackers in a store but you can order them HERE.
I crushed them up and added them to my Tuscan Kale salad for dinner + Dr. Praegers Veggie Burger + Roasted Broccolini. They also recommend eating them spread with cream cheese, avocado or baked like little pizzas with marinara and cheese.
Found the perfect little shift dress. This is a gray chambray and so soft! It would be cute now paired with tights and booties and light enough to wear in the Spring with flats. I am wearing a small.
I am loving these agate cheese knives, I just ordered them- perfect to pair with my cheese platters.
Also need these serving spoons.
Cleaned and organized the fridge, makes me so happy every time I open it.
The avocado toast at the Hen and Goat is amazing! You must try if you eat there.
Have a great Tuesday!
