ten things

ONE: I'm obsessed with this combo: sweet potatoes + brussel sprouts + egg
dice a potato, dice some onion, quarter a few brussels :: throw the onion and potatoes in a pan with some olive oil, cook until the potatoes are soft then add the brussels :: sprinkle in some salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin [my fave!], cayenne, and cook until everything has color :: put on a plate :: in the same pan cook an egg or two to your liking [over easy with a runny yolk, please]  EAT
Of course you can add diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, a dose of sriracha, or some meat if you'd like. You bacon lovers would probably enjoy this if you cooked the bacon first and then proceeded on with cooking everything else in that bacon fat. Apparently non-vegetarian people like that.

TWO: Did you know that Rifle Paper Co has FABRIC??? I ordered some from Hawthorne Threads. I was a little scared to cut it, but I put on my Crafty Cap and made a purse.
I almost wish I was good enough to sew clothes, but alas, I have been down that terrible rabbit hole a few too many times.

THREE: POLDARK. Oh my goodness, BBC. A few random people mentioned this one to me and I was home alone in the middle of the night and finally started watching it.

Highly, highly recommend. I love the story. I love the cinematography [I'm going to have to travel to Cornwall, who wants to go?]. I love the characters.

FOUR: I know I mentioned it last month, but I CAN'T STOP BUYING the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow pallets.
I think three is enough. Right? Right. NO MORE. I'm on a makeup buying hiatus.

FIVE: I just decided I needed that hiatus. Dangit. Four months no new makeups? 😭

SIX: These booties from BCBGeneration took me all over Chicago for a day -- hoofing it seven miles all over without any foot pain.

SEVEN: I can't stop watching Anna from glitterandlazers for some plus size fashion hauls.

EIGHT: Have you started shopping at ALDI yet? GET THEE A QUARTER, BRING YOUR OWN BAGS, AND FIND YOUR NEAREST ALDI. I don't mean to shout, but it's just so good.

Also good? These flatbreads, I recommend over and over.

NINE: What do you think the best way to save money is? I've tried some different things: the envelope system, just dumping money in my savings when I can, cash only...is there a better way? Besides stopping with my makeup, clothes, and shoes problem? Marry a wealthy man? Jk, I totally don't need a man for financial purposes.

TEN: Divide - Ed Sheeran

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Amazing. Stupendous. Beautiful.


Do I sob through "Supermarket Flowers"? Yup.
Do I car dance through "Barcelona"? Yup.
Do I associate "What Do I Know" with Mutual Kumquat? Yup. [Holla at me my Brethren friends!]
