I may have mentioned this before, but I have a lot of cookbooks that I rarely use. The problem is that I am a visual person, and I usually only want to cook something when I’ve seen it and it looks delicious. So cookbooks without pictures are pretty useless to me. The other thing is that I’m on a computer all day, not at home flipping through cookbooks, so it’s the recipes I see online that I’m drawn to. And Pinterest seems to be full of only the yummiest recipes. I want to try all that I have pinned, but the list is growing faster than I’m cooking! But here are some I’m trying soon:
Sorry for the lack of posts the last couple days. It’s my goal to post daily on weekdays, but the hubby hurt his back the other night and my week got a little out of routine with having to take him to doctors and care for him at home. He’s doing much better now, though will be uncomfortable for probably a few more days at least. But I’m back at the computer, so here’s one last post for the week.
The weather in SoCal teased us last week with cool –dare I say fall?–weather. We even had some rain. Everyone were pulling out their sweaters and boots. Then it was 90 degrees again this week. [Sigh.]
My monthly Birchbox arrived yesterday, with new goodies for me to try. The month Birchbox partnered with Goop.com to offer a special box, or we could elect to recieve the regularly scheduled box. They didn’t tell us what was in either box, so we just had to eenie-meenie-miney-moe. I opted to recieve the Goop box, and while I don’t know what I missed out on in the regular box, I’m happy with these samples. I may actually buy a full size of one of these.
October Goop BirchBox:
- This seems like a great product. The sample size provides multiple uses, and I tried it first after the gym yesterday afternoon, and again this morning worked in to my usual routine.
As I had said in a post a week or so ago, I picked up the book How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig. She starts off the book dealing with hair: our hair as a “wearable status symbol” and how to get expensive looking color without paying the expensive price tag. This was relevant to me: I’m looking for a good hair color.
