friday four

It’s been a while, so how about a Friday Four?

Contain yourself.

#1 It’s All Good


Gwynnie released a new cookbook last week. It focuses on clean eating so there are zero recipes with red meat. It includes meal plans in the back for different weeks… detox, family-friendly (my family would not be friendly if I fed them some of the suggestions), vegan, etc. There are lots of recipes that look delicious and easy. So far, the only thing I’ve made is the Go-To Black Beans. They were great, but it is hard to mess up a can of black beans. Verdict is still out. I will try more recipes and let you know.

#2 Caprese Salad


It’s time to plant tomatoes. This dish is the only reason I bother to do so. Seriously, I didn’t even like tomatoes before I had them with cheese and basil. So easy, so good… so vegetarian. Maybe Gwynnie will ask me to contribute to her next cookbook.

Slice tomatoes and fresh mozzarella and layer them on a platter. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and add salt and pepper. Add fresh basil to the top. Also great drizzled with a little balsamic glaze. YUM!

#3 Wide Leg Pants


I posted this pic on Instagram and my caption led several to believe that I was wearing pajama pants. (Probably because I said, “Hey look, I’m wearing PJs as pants”.) To clarify, they are legit pants that feel like pajamas. Cute + Comfy = I need ten pairs. They are on sale at Anthro. I prefer them with flats so they don’t look like “the flood is a coming”.


I also have these from Piperlime. I love them but they are super thin. Perfect for the beach and also on sale. Get you some.


(Yes, I spend a LOT of time in that chair looking at books and magazines. And drinking wine. Those are my only hobbies.)

#4 Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil – Baroque


Oh, and hoarding products. This is my new favorite gloss. It is the perfect shade of pink for spring. It doesn’t dry out your lips or taste weird. The only drawback is that it’s a pain to sharpen. Oh, and that it costs $25. I am going to be baroque if I don’t stay out of Sephora.

Speaking of, Sephora is having their annual 15% off sale. The online code is CHICWEEK. Let me know if you have any favorite products I need to try.

I hope you have a great weekend!
