Random Musings

  • If you need some new reads, Amazon Kindle has some good deals for $4.99! I picked up Lena Dunham’s book, Jodi Picoult’s latest & this book I have had on my list for some time.
  • I also bought this Smoothie Detox book and decided to give it a whirl. Day 2, going well. I am modifying it slightly, but following the rules. Has anyone else tried this? I’ve done Blueprint several times and this seems a lot easier.
  • This article about bitchy resting face was accurately hilarious.
  • The upcoming Kate Spade + Jack Spade for GAP collection (online on October 31st) is expectedly whimsically adorable!! Well done! Too often, I find that these collabs are overhyped and fall WAAAY short. This one seems decidedly on point, bravo!

What’s Cooking

Finally getting back into meal planning. Honestly, this helps me keep organized and prevents me from aimlessly roaming the grocery aisles and getting home to discover that I have $200 worth of groceries and nothing to make for dinner! 

Saturday: Dinner Party and Brisk Day = Spaghetti and Meatballs, and freaking amazing Garlic Bread courtesy of Ina Garten

Sunday: Leftovers

Monday: Crockpot Veggie Minestrone (good makes a tonne & froze the rest)

Sweet Deal

Hi Friends- just came across this living social deal. Am a huge Costco fan- lots of great items, and a lot more organic options these days! City dwellers, I know where are you going to stock 25 rolls of toilet paper? Split the membership with a friend- that’s what I used to do :)

Anyways, here’s the deal via Living Social- $55 (you can add a household member) + $20 coupon.
