I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol. 2)


Hey guys!  Is it fall in your neck of the woods, yet?  It is still HOT here, so I'm *still* wearing my white jeans and sandals.  Totally allowed after Labor Day if it's 90 degrees, right?

1. I love Halloween...and these spider peanut butter blossoms might be the cutest Halloween treats I've ever seen.

2.  Fried Okra Chunks!  CHUNKS!!!  I only want to eat things in chunks from now on.

3. On the importance of a print button.  (This is one of the funniest blog posts of all time.)

4. This dress.  In houndstooth...or dots...or purple, but I think it might be too short.  Do you hesitate to order clothes online like I do?  I'm a clothes-ordering-chicken.

5. I'm on an avocado kick these days.  As in EVERY day for lunch, I mash up an avocado with lemon juice, salt, and pepper and spread it on toasted sourdough.  How do YOU eat it?  I may need some variety.

6. Love this.  (Just want it to be 75% off.)

7. Bobbi Brown.  I'm usually a "drug store" makeup buyer.  Last spring, Mr. E gifted me a Nordstrom gift card, so I had my makeup done at Bobbi Brown.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but I walked away with a gift card balance of $0...and very happy.  Six months later, my eyeshadows and eyeliner are still more than half full.  So, I went back.  This time for foundation, concealer, powder...and of course, lipstick.  Always lipstick.  I think the gel eyeliner is my favorite product, but I love it all.

What have you been loving lately?  Specifically, what makeup do you love?

  2. That dress is adorable. I recently bought a dress that I loved even though I knew it was too short... because adding leggings is always a great option!

  6. Love that Bobbi Brown gel liner. I bought waaay too much BB makeup 2 years ago before my 25th high school reunion. Regarding avocado, I heat up a flour tortilla in a dry, hot pan, flipping occasionally so it's crispy then I top it with mashed avocado and sprinkle with flaked sea salt. Good and good for ya!

  9. I promise that that dress is 100% worth it and it isn't too short (says the girl who is 5'4"). I bought it in black a few weeks ago, and it's perfect for every occasion. And I bought it in shirt form too in black and white stripes. (http://www.modcloth.com/shop/blouses/coach-tour-top-in-stripes) They are absolutely perfect. Also Modcloth has a great return policy. Go for it!

  25. I love most everything on modcloth! Everything is so cute but I'm scared to buy dresses online. I love Mac makeup, started when I got married, 12 years ago, switch sometimes but always go back to their studio fix foundation. And big thank you for sending me to read that Peabody blog post- so funny!

  26. That dress is so cute. There is a very similar one over on eshakti.com and you can customize the length if you think this one might be too short. I haven't ordered yet but I've been eyeing it:)

  28. Avocado alternative, AKA my fave salad in world...

    Mixed salad greens of preference
    1/2 ruby red grapefruit
    1 whole VERY ripe avocado
    sliced white mushrooms
    protein of choice - chicken, shrimp, or lobster are fab in here
    your favorite balsamic vinaigrette
    Kikoman ponzu sauce

    Slice avocado in chunks, add to mixed greens. It should be ripe enough, that it will become part of the dressing. Toss in mushrooms and protein. Squeeze your 1/2 of ruby grapefruit over top. Add a tablespoon of balsamic, tablespoon of ponzu, and Voila! Yummmm avocado salad!
