Food: Dinners For The Week

One Month and I am definitely over the hump – meaning no more craving carbs and sugar. And the funny thing is – this new lifestyle change has me searching for better ways to eat and this is what I’ve come up with for this week’s dinner plans:    

Fashion: Sexy and Bold Wedding Gowns

I think, if personalized, these gowns would best fit for the stars walking down some red carpet. A gala perhaps, the styles in soft blues, and lavender, white and even black. And if a bride chooses the fashion for her special day, then I give her . Either way, can you guess which is my absolute favorite?

Fashion: Mother’s Day Gift Ideas Or Just For You

You know when you find a few new pieces to add to your wardrobe while really shopping for a gift – in this case for mother’s day. Or How to revamp your mother’s weekend wardrobe – past the sweatpants and T-shirt.  🙂 THIS BLOUSE   THESE PANTS, THAT LOOK, AND THE FASHIONABLE SWEATER THE BACKPACK   FLATS AND MORE FLATS

Omit the honey, and the sweet potatoes, and eat the mango sparingly.  Simple 🙂 INGREDIENTS 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon cumin 2 limes 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated kosher salt and pepper 2 sweet potatoes, cut into matchsticks 2 avocados, lightly mashed 3 heads romaine lettuce chopped 1 mango, diced 8 ounces feta, crumbled {more}    

Lifestyle: Eating Healthy – Beef Satay and Peanut Sauce

  In kicking off week three of my efforts to cut out carbs and sugar, I am finding more recipes to keep me inspired to stay on track.  Like this easy recipe, which technically is a pretty solid alternative for the entire family (less folks with peanut allergies) and with a bowl of sticky rice, the meal turns pretty satisfying even for the pessimist in your efforts to ditch starchy/sugary.

Fashion: Wedding Season and You’re Invited

So you weren’t invited to the Royal wedding in Windsor this May, but you are certainly on the invite list for a wedding of someone much more meaningful and now on a hunt for that perfect dress, like me right now – for a  summer winery outdoor wedding and another formal evening one in the city mid-fall.  Here’s what I found so far to consider.
