Early 2017 Faves
Hey guys, I know I haven’t been doing regular favorites posts lately but I wanted to jump in and share some things I’ve been crushing on lately.
If you know me, you know I love Mexican food and of course tacos. Over the last few weeks I’ve been taking my taco making skills up to the next level with two AMAZING new recipes. First I made these yummy Beef Street Tacos, and more recently I tried out these Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa. Spoiler alert: They were both great and I can’t wait to work them into our meal rotation.
In other news, I’ve been working on my dining room lately. One of the new items I have added is this great teal rug from Walmart. Yes, Walmart! I was in there picking something up the other day and saw it and it was only $80 which was great. I love the bold color, but if I get sick of it in a few years I can just replace it as I didn’t spend a ton of money on it. Now that I have that rug in there I am going to be working the rest of the room around those colors.
Both January and February found me visiting Antique Extravaganza at the Rennigers Flea Market here in the Orlando area. First of all, (as I am sure you are wondering) yes, it is big enough of an event to be called an extravaganza. Anyways, I picked up two new cute home decor pieces; a window and a dough bowl. I know these are both trend items and the bowl is reproduction, but I think they are super cute and really work in my dining room. (Which, as you recall, I am working on.)
I think it must be the early nightfall or the cool air, but I have just been loving curling up on the sofa after work with a good book and reading until bed. When I get out of the habit of reading physical books I don’t miss it, but once I start back up I swear they are as addictive as coffee and Publix cookies. (Oatmeal Raisin of course.)
Not a favorite yet, but I am considering trying Lipsense. Have you tried it? Do you like it? I am looking for an Orlando area consultant so I can try it before I buy it. Not sure what Lipsense is? It is a long wear lipstick that appears to really stay for 18 hours. It is only sold via direct sales so ask around in your area for a consultant.
Anyway, I hope you liked this collection of a few random things I am enjoying. Loving anything awesome? Share it with me in the comments! Want to see more things I love? Follow me on Instagram!
