Blush and Grey Long Cardigan

Blush and grey again? Sorry ladies, nothing groundbreaking here; just my favorite color combination. I don’t know what it is about grey and blush that catches my eye, but I see myself wearing the combination 3 times a week. It’s easily feminine and is neutral too, which I love.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

It’s Superbowl weekend! I’m not usually a football fan, but the Atlanta Falcons made it to the event, so I became a super fan. During the semifinal game, I made this Buffalo Chicken dip and posted some images on Instagram Stories. I had some recipe requests, so I thought I would quickly share before the game. The funny thing is, I looked up buffalo chicken dip on Pinterest and pretty much combined my favorite parts of all the recipes.

As I was making the dip, I was concerned that it would be overpowering, but buffalo chicken is supposed to be a strongly flavored dish. All in all, I was very pleased with the final product. We ate it with pita chips, but it can be eaten with tortilla chips, toast, veggies and more. I actually saw an awesome recipe that filled zucchini with the buffalo chicken dip! Might have to try that next time.

Grey Off Shoulder Sweater

Deja vu? Yes this sweater looks so similar to my previous ribbed fold over camel dress. But can you blame me? The style is so flattering, easy to wear and cozy. And no, I am not ashamed of wearing the same thing everyday. If you look at my closet, I have 4 of the same tee shirts (this one) that I rotate through until they’re worn to threads.

Camel Off Shoulder Dress

Anyone else tired of off shoulder everything? I for sure am not! There’s just something about the tastefully exposed neckline that makes me feel so glam. And for that reason I love this dress! The fitted fold over style is very figure flattering and adds a flirty accent. Since it’s camel colored, pairing it with black was a no brainier. Camel and black will always be a classic color combination with great contrast.

Winter Pear Chia Bowl

January is coming to an end and I hope you all are reaching your goals for the new year. As far as my goals are concerned, I’m just aiming for a more healthier lifestyle than last year. I can honestly say that January was a rough month in regards to healthy eating. But, we have some stricter guidelines set for February!

I actually spent a few hours on Saturday meal prepping for the entire week. One of my struggles is pre-planning, so this partial meal prep was a step in the right direction. The ever so popular chia bowl is one meal that I’ve enjoyed prepping in advance.

Simple Orange Sweater

It’s looking more and more like spring outside, so I wanted to pull out the last of my favorite fall and winter pieces before transitioning into full on white and bright spring mode. Yes I’m guilty of sticking to certain colors and textures in the fall and different ones in the spring. But, I also enjoy taking something characteristically “fall,” such as this burnt orange sweater, and making it more seasonally appropriate.

Forest Green Suede Skirt :: Retro Style

YALL, can you believe that January is halfway over. I feel like I’ve finally caught up with life after an extended break in Japan. Getting out of vacation mode and into work mode was beyond difficult. I can honestly say that I struggled staying awake past 9:00 the past few weeks. But, these past few days have been much better and I’m finally starting to feel like myself again.
