In Other News…

The blog here is going through a serious case of neglect.  I blame it on the three piglets in the house, fat with my attention.  I do have some projects and a few stories on the assembly line though stamped with a big “TBD”.  I’ll probably be posting some sneak peeks on Instagram and Facebook though, so you can start heading down those routes if you want to stay in the loop.  :)

Until I get all my ducks in a row and napping in sync, check these out:

I’ve been eyeing this swimsuit since last summer and I just can’t shake it out of my mind.  It’s a little on the expensive side for me but I wear swimsuits for at least three years so I’m thinking maybe it’ll be worth it (and I have birthday money burning a hole in my sweatpants pocket).   

For those of you on the ‘gram, you should chase after Shalice’s Instagram feed.  I recently stumbled upon her and her incredible sense of style.  I rarely have closet envy but she’s colored me green with it.  The fact that a ton (and I mean a ton) of the stuff she wears/styles is thrifted makes me heart her and her closet that much more.  And I thought I had closet full of thrift scores… 

Let’s talk eyebrows.  Do you fill yours in?  I don’t and never have but Maskcara’s tutorial makes me want to try.  I mean, look at the difference between her filled and unfilled brows!  Amazing!

Easy recipes are my favorite since I don’t exactly enjoy cooking (but baking?  That’s another story).  So, this brown sugar and garlic baked chicken caught my scrolling finger on Pinterest and we’ve made it twice in two weeks because it’s easy AND good.  I usually don’t like chicken recipes that don’t involve marinade because I’m not a fan of that pure chicken taste but this one is a thaw-the-chicken-and-throw-it-in-the-oven recipe and it tastes mighty good.  A few alterations I made:  I baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes and sprinkled white cheddar cheese (Cabot sharp cheddar) over the top when there was 10 minutes left on the clock.  Scrumptious.

And bonus, I set Sebastian on Seraphia (I can’t really say I let her “hold” him because he’s literally almost the size of her) and she loved it.  Aside from being binki-stuffed, I’d say he liked it to…maybe.  Watch:

  2. I bought a 'pricey'(Land' End) swim suit 3 years ago and am still happy I spent all those bucks, if it makes it 2 more seasons the cost willl actually average out to only 2 times what I would normally pay........but I am really enjoying the suit and have never had even one malfunction (you know what I mean right, a moment in which the suit threatens to force you to a. Perform Olympic level gymnastics, or b. Live out that nightmare we've all had). Any way I say go for it!

    1. Haha! Malfuntions! Yes, I've had one bad one in my lifetime and I care not to relive it! :) Good to know you see the worth in buying a quality suit and spending good money for it. On a side note, a friend of mine used to have a Lands End swimsuit and she loved hers as well. I might check them out too...

  4. I *have* been filling in my brows since I saw the Maskcara tutorial! I feel like it makes a big difference in how polished I look. It's kinda funny because I've gone my whole life not touching the things, and now all-of-a-sudden, I'm tweezing and filling!
