Stuff I’m Into

This week was not a shining week for me in the kitchen.  I had plenty of time being snowed in  and I thought that I’d have loads of recipes to share with you.  Nope.  Here’s the scoop… Zucchini noodles are fun to make but they’re trickier to cook than I thought.  If I cook them too much they are slimy and if I don’t cook them enough they are too weirdly al dente to try to pass off as pasta.  I took a few pics of the dish anyway and it did not look appetizing… like at all.  I’ll keep …

Stuff I’m Into: Winter Essentials

Here’s the Stuff I’m Into lately for winter: A warm cozy scarf.  I have bought way too many scarves this fall and winter, but this dusty pink one is my most recent favorite. Moisturizers.  I use a variety of hand creams, but L’Occitane’s shea butter hand cream has been my favorite for years and it is a favorite weapon in my on-going war against dry skin. Dark polish and statement baubles.  I love to sport dark nail polishes, especially during the winter so I treated myself to Chanel’s Vamp nail color (sadly they don’t sell this color any more so I guess I’ll …

Happy Friday!  Here’s the Stuff I’m Into lately. Pumpkins.  I love anything having to do with pumpkins.  I love decorating with them, big ones or small ones.  I love pumpkin scented candles.  I love pumpkin food.  I could start off with some Pumpkin French Toast for breakfast, then follow it with Pumpkin Bread for a snack and then end the day with some Pumpkin Snickerdoodles for dessert.  It’s a pumpkin food fest.  Of course we cannot forget about THE drink of the season, pumpkin spice latte.  I’m totally in love with Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte.  When I want to be at home in my PJs …

Happy Fall, a.k.a. my favorite time of the year!  Here’s the Stuff I’m Into lately. Plaid.  I never cared for plaid printed clothes and accessories.  I guess I thought it just wasn’t my style.  Last winter I felt like I wore the same 3 sweaters (and I’m pretty sure that I did) so I knew I had to step up my game.  I’ve previously mentioned that I am following some awesome fashion bloggers.  They have been a great source of inspiration and now with Fall in full swing, plaid has been all over my instagram feed.  Guess what?  Now I love plaid. Recently …

Craving Fall

Is it too early to talk about Fall stuff?  If you think so, then we’ll politely part ways today and we’ll resume this conversation in a month.  🙂  If you think it’s totally cool to talk about Fall even though it’s still August, then we’ve just become BFFs and you should definitely read on. I’m looking forward to the Fall so I’m taking a slight detour from salads, ice cream, and all things having to do with summer.  This post is sort of like sharing what Stuff I’m Into, except this it’s dedicated to all the things that I’m looking forward to for …
