I threw the easiest little get together for my friends last weekend — small slices of pizza, snacks (some healthy…some not) and plenty of wine. The prompting for this afternoon in?
We usually have some sort of meat with dinner, and my favorite is chicken. It’s one of the healthier meat options, and I love how versatile it is.
Many of my favorite recipes, including my enchiladas, call for shredded chicken. Ugh. Typically I’d shred with two forks, but aside from taking so much time, I absolutely abhor the sound of utensils scraping on each other *shivers*.
Enter my new way to shred:
Traveling — even short, close work trips — will always been one of my favorite things. This past week, I found myself in Memphis for a fun work retreat — and you bet I tried my best to seek out some cute thangs. And the cutest I found? Broad Street, on the recommendation of a colleague.
I love having home-cooked meals throughout the week (and the leftovers that follow!), but I’m always looking for ways to spend less time making them.
This enchilada dish is one of my standbys: my husband loves it and will happily eat leftovers all week, and it’s adaptable for any time of year.
I have a secret weapon when it comes to finding deals: my friend Chris. He’s basically a deals ninja. I’ve decided that it’s selfish to keep these updates to myself, so I’m sharing with you!
Today’s deal (originally found on Kinja) allows you to save $7.50 on the purchase of a $25 gift card from a whole list of stores. It’s a promotion being offered by Swych, a new app that allows you to consolidate and organize your gift cards.
It’s a part of every woman I know. We learn it from a young age and it follows us until the end.
How many times do you say it everyday? Have you ever stopped to count? I tried once and quit when I got to a dozen before 10 a.m. A co-worker recently shared that her sweet 18-month-old (whose vocabulary is obviously limited) has started saying it — not because she’s done something wrong, but because she’s picked it up as a way to fill silence.
We all know there’s a better way, but habits are hard to break. So here’s a start: 37 things to say instead, broken up into different scenarios (with a section for littles, too!). Why 37? Because 38 seemed like too many. I’m not sorry.
After a short holiday break, Angelica and I are back with more smart style and home ideas to get you and your space looking great without breaking the bank.
I’m messy by nature. While I love and thrive in clean, organized spaces, the creative part of me can’t help but leave piles in my wake. But my “Type A” part can only take so much, which is why I knew I needed a system that could work for all of me.
Then I happened upon this quote: “It’s the little things that are vital. Little things make big things happen.”
I realized that if I could make myself adopt a few small cleaning tasks each day, that could make a big difference over time. I’m calling these little bits here and there:
Angelica and I are back for another round of On a Shoestring, a series of posts where we reimagine fashion, food, decor and more all on a shoestring budget. We’re out to prove that it doesn’t take mountains (or even molehills) of money to look fashionable and put together.
