all the things

{a weekly(ish) roundup of some current favorite things}

 

style : My go-to spring / summer shoe that's the easiest to throw on for every day wear is by Soludos. I wore my last pair until they were actually unraveling. It's time for a new pair and I'm debating between a basic solid or a cute kitschy pair.

 

home : I've got my eye on what I've jokingly (but seriously) always called 'the married girl appliance' - a Kitchenmaid Mixer! I just can't decide on what color to do - bright green, hot pink, orange? How can I commit to one?! 

 

beauty : A friend gave me this Bosica mask to try - to sum it up, it's fascinating at first, then slick and smooth when on your face, then scary and intense once you start to pull it off. While it's not as bad as this hilarious video which I can't get enough of...it's actually not too far off.

 

food : I made these grain free mini banana chocolate chip muffins over the weekend for a family brunch and they were a big hit. 

 

travel : We just booked a fall trip to Croatia and Italy! We're going to see some friends get married but also taking some extra time for ourselves for a delayed honeymoon. If you have any can't miss spots around Split, Croatia or the northeast area of Italy - I'd love to hear!

 

local : In the last few weeks I tried the new Republic on Grand (had an aronia berry cocktail + cheese plate) and the new La Mie Elevate (had a quinoa / kale mix with 2 eggs + avocado)...big fan of both. The Republic had a heated patio, so it was a treat to be outside yet staying warm on a chilly evening. The new La Mie has lots of new fresh dishes in addition to their original menu at the 42nd Street location.
