Happy Friday friends! Hopefully it is a happy Friday and you’re not frustrated because t when the Nordstrom sale opened for everyone today the items you wanted were already sold out. Keep the faith and keep checking back, they’ll restock! My order arrived and I like half of what I got. I’ll call this recap favorite #1!
Here’s what I am keeping: this top that I ordered in green in a size small. The green is more jade than it appears on the website but I like the fit. I’ll share some looks with it next week. The other thing that really surprised me was how much I like the Zella high waist print leggings. I ordered a size small and all I can say is that they are soft and fit well. I wanted a pair of print leggings to pull off an athleisure look that fits my lifestyle right now. In the past when I have tried printed legging they’ve been so hot and I’m sweating up a storm! Of course the purchase that had my heart and was no surprise at all was my new underwear! I bought the 3 pack because it’s a great deal!
So what I really disliked was the Zella lite crop live in leggings. They weren’t awful but they weren’t any better than the ones I get from TJ Maxx. Another thing that was a MAJOR disappointment was the Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Circle Cardigan. While it is certainly soft it is very tight in the arms and the pockets at the hips make me look like a weeble (remember those? weebles wobble but they won’t fall down?). In my opinion this cardigan is overpriced – even on sale.
While I had no intention of placing another order I did. I ordered two cardigans and plan to keep just one. Here they are – I ordered both in pink:
Favorite #2 this week was my post on Monday about how I deal with my fine, thinning hair. If you haven’t already I hope you’ll check it out and pass it on to someone who might need it.
Favorite #3 oh how I love sharing a yummy recipe that’s also healthy. I was a Weight Watchers Leader for 15 years and absolutely love the program. I still use many of the delicious recipes I collected during that time. One of my favorites is this Cumin-Lime Confetti Salad. It’s delicious and EVERY TIME I make it for someone new they want the recipe.
30 oz can black beans, drained
2 C shelled, cooked edamame
10 oz thawed frozen corn
1 Serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 sweet red pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 orange pepper, chopped
1 medium red onion, mined
1/2 C fresh cilantro
Combine all of that and then add the dressing.
For the dressing:
3 Tbs fresh lime juice
3 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs lime zest
1 Tbs kosher salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cumin
Whisk together and our over salad. Chill and then enjoy!
Favorite #4 I knocked two things off my Summer Bucket List last Saturday! Went to the Farmer’s Market and then out for ice cream that night. Yup, I spent the morning happily shopping for all the healthy veggies I could get my hands on and then the night eating calorie laden ice cream, yes, the irony is not lost on me. I had my husband snap a few pictures of me and also snapped one for my very dear friend Mary because she has added the word amazeballs to her more sophisticated UK vocabulary after hanging out with her American friends!
