What I'm Loving Lately

Happy Tuesday Ladies. I feel like I've been a little lazy in recent weeks when it comes to the blog. So many guest posts... and link ups. I kind of hate that I'm turning into one of those bloggers who doesn't really create anything, and just publishes pretty pictures she stole off of pinterest. I promise, come October 6 I will be back full force. In the mean time, one of my blogging favorites Niki has started a new linkup, so I thought I would join in for the inaugural edition. It's called

Glossy Blonde

"What I'm Loving Lately" and it is giving me a wonderful excuse for an instagram drop. Get excited ladies. I have some good ones.

I've become obsessed with the starbucks refreshers--- my favorite is to mix the berry and the lime together! AWESOME. 

Loving this Coffee House Brew from the Williamsburg Ale Werks. Coffee in Beer? You know they won me over with that one. Good thing I'm stopping in the 'burg this weekend on my way to Charlotte!

Loving wearing my hair curly lately. I cannot believe how well it's been holding up in the August humidity of the swamp that is Washington D.C.

Benefit's How to Look the Best at Everything kit
Naked Palette and a few other fun toys :)
I've been loving playing in my ever expanding makeup collection. I did some damage in Sephora this weekend, and I'm completely obsessed with this new Benefit kit!

Loving having blonde roots again. PS. Thank you for your input on twitter and instagram yesterday!

New favorite snack. Roasted chickpeas. They are AWESOME. and pretty much idiot proof. Turn on your oven. Take a can of chick peas. coat in olive oil and some of your favorite spices (I used yellow curry, some chili powder and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste). Bake for 45 minutes-an hour (shake the pan every so often to prevent burning). Thank me later.

I've been doing a little too much shopping lately. I almost bought this dress Friday night, but didn't. and I'm still thinking about it. Should I go back?

Now, question for y'all. I've been doing a little closet cleaning lately. and I have some good stuff that I'd like to sell, not just donate. Do any of you have online shops for your clothes? I've been using Poshmark, with little success so far. Would y'all be receptive to a blog sale? DC area ladies, know of any good consignment shops that take plus size clothing? help!!! 

That's it for today! Happy Tuesday Ladies!

Found you from the blog hop! I've seen roasted chickpeas on Pinterest for quite some time now and I've been dying to try it! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts, I'm your newest follower :)

I love the glasses pic of you!

The Made Up Maiden said...

I love your hair with curls! I also love the leopard print and your Chickpea recipe...it's inspired me to try it out sometime! :)

PS- I'm so jealous that you live in the States! We girls Down Under LOVE Sephora and wish they'd ship to Australia. :)

Niki said...

I love your hair curly! You are so gorgeous! And I just bought the Naked 2 palette! That Benefit kit looks so fun, I love mixed sets like that. And I love (I feel like I keep saying love) your last one about doing a little too much loving lately - I'm in the same boat! Gorgeous dress!

Carly said...

I LOVE the naked palette! Isn't it amazing????

Thanks for linking up!


Leslie said...

LOVE that pink dress! You should definitely get it :) And where is your cheetah skirt from?!?! I have been looking for a cheetah pencil skirt!

Devon Riesenberg said...

Wow, those roasted chickpeas look yummy! Thanks for sharing, I'll have to try. All your makeup finds look fabulous too...new follower :)

Jamie said...

I need to try the chick peas again. I made them once but they were sort of gummy. I probably didnt cook them long enough.

Oh well hello my friend...I am so glad that you stopped by my blog. So glad to find a DEMOCRAT, a SOUTHERNER, and a BLOGGER. I have died and gone to heaven. You've got a new follower here!!

Samantha said...

I might have to try that Starbucks drink Thursday on my extra long day :)

Kelsey Heinze said...

Two things;
1. LOVE those refreshers!!!!
2. Try Flying Dog Pearl Necklace beer (also a coffee beer) and it's from Maryland!

HMB said...

I have to try that roasted chickpea recipe!!
What do you use to curl your hair? The DC humidity definitely wreaks havoc on mine, but yours looks great!

You are gonna LOVE the Naked palette! It's my all time fave!! And no worries about the blog...we all go through busy times...you are doing great!! ;)

Nicole Harling said...

The Starbucks refreshers are amaze-balls! Lime is my fave, but now I think I need to try mixing them ;). And you can guarantee I'll be trying the roasted chickpeas ASAP!

Madeline said...

Lovely post you have here (and blog as well). That Stila One Step looks like candy..haha. They were so ingenious with the packaging. I might give it a try as well. Oh and I also need to try those Starbucks refreshers- looks so yummy. Thanks for sharing all of these with us! :)
