I hope you don’t mind that I will be skipping a recipe challenge for this week in favor of a Friday Favorites chat!
One of the things I am loving though right now is in fact the Recipe Challenge. The Vegan Sloppy Joe’s recipe in particular, which I first made a few weeks ago, is a regular in my weekly dinner rotation. I have made sure to have red peppers in the house every week since sharing that recipe so that I can quickly whip up those vegan sloppy joe’s for dinner. This week I subbed the chick peas with quinoa and lentils and it was delicious!
I am so grateful for the Recipe Challenge that Laura and I have committed ourselves to because without it, I wouldn’t be experimenting on a routine basis with new-to-me recipes (and wouldn’t have homemade veggie burgers frozen in my freezer ready to eat. That’s another huge benefit).
This Lip Glow Pomade is similar to my previous Friday Favorite Dior Addict Lip Glow but different because it’s in a squeeze tube. This version of the Dior Addict Lip Glow is a pomade in a squeeze tube and is extremely smooth and hydrating without being sticky at all!
I can’t get over the moisture that it adds to the lips and how I expect it to always be sticky like other squeeze-tube types of lip glosses but it’s not at all! It adds a pop of color too just like the other Dior Lip Glow.
From the Dior website:
The first Dior lip pomade, SOS intensive care, with a custom natural rosy tint.
Shiny, plump and delicately rosy lips (as if they were revitalized) Perfectly matches Dior Addict Lip Glow Liner and Dior Addict Lip Glow for perfectly defined lips and a natural makeup result.
I adore my Erin Condren LifePlanner and I am currently trying to figure out which one from the new collection I will order for 2017 BUT then I came across this new Kate Spade Cameron Street Agenda and got all excited.
I love Kate Spade products and love that this agenda is a zip around! If only it had more blank note pages. I need a lot of lined pages for taking notes as I work.
Even my Erin Condren LifePlanner doesn’t have enough lined pages. I may end up ordering the Erin Condren notebook instead of the LifePlanner this year. I have used both products in the past and may prefer the notebook even though I love the Lifeplanner. Big decisions to make, I know.
I finally found a shower curtain that I actually like! I am the worst at selecting a shower curtain that will make me happy, in case you didn’t know.
I went with this Peyton shower curtain from Pottery Barn Teen in grey plus the deep pink towels with matching bath mat shown in the picture.
There’s a major quality difference between the regular Pottery Barn bath towels and Pottery Barn Kids/PB Teen bath towels. The kids towels are so much better!
My son’s bath towels from Pottery Barn Kids and Pottery Barn Teen over the years have always been so much nicer and much more durable than the regular Pottery Barn store towels. I have had a few sets of Pottery Barn bath towels and they got icky and faded almost immediately. I would blame my washing skills but I wash my son’s towels and they are always fine!
Trader Joe’s Frozen Wild Blueberries
I think I enjoy the little frozen wild blueberries just like I love mini chocolate chips.
I usually purchase the regular sized frozen blueberries but a few weeks ago, Trader Joe’s only had the frozen wild blueberries in stock. I am so glad this happened because these little baby blueberries are now my favorite.
These little frozen blueberries when added to oatmeal (especially this recipe) give me a bite of blueberry with every spoonful which reminds me of baking with mini chocolate chips. Cookies made with mini chocolate chips are the best since the chocolate gets evenly distributed throughout the cookie giving you chocolate in each bite.
My life is like a Sex and the City episode – This post will always make me laugh

Which planner do you use? Are you nutty about having enough blank, lined pages like I am?
