Mushroom and Black Truffle Oil Mac and Cheese

It’s no secret that I love cheese. I mean, people began buying me cheese for Christmas last year and this year the trend continued. This Christmas I actually received 17 wedges of it! You might say I have a wee bit of an addiction. But, if that is the worst thing a person is addicted to, that isn’t a bad …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Women’s Winter Boots

I’m back with another Fantasy Wardrobe Friday after a short absence! It feels good to get back to these Friday posts. I find them to be pretty fun to put together every week. The topic this week is Women’s Winter Boots! It has been absolutely frigid here since right after Christmas, and if I could, I’d be wearing some of this …

The Anti New Year’s Resolution

Well, it’s that time again! It’s almost January 1st, and you know what that means! It’s time for millions of people to do that cliche thing they call setting New Year’s Resolutions. The title of this post may be slightly misleading; I am not against the practice of setting yearly goals. The word “resolution” in this context is about as …

8 Things Men Shouldn’t Do in Their Dating Profile

Have you ever browsed sites like Match.com and Farmers Only just to kill some time? When I get bored, sometimes I check out profiles on dating websites. Seriously, I do. It’s a weird source of entertainment when nothing else sounds interesting enough. I like to read profiles and think of how this person or that one could market themselves better (let’s face it, a …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: A Holiday Pop of Color

I really like the color black. I love colors too, but for a long time when I would shop I would end up buying a lot of black things. It’s been a few years since I’ve consciously made an effort to refrain from buying so much black, but a girl just can’t help shopping for stuff in a color that will …

Fontina and Mushroom Pizza with Black Truffle Oil

My mom and I took a little trip to World Market the other day. We always get sucked in to that store because of all the international goods. My favorite aisles are the food aisles of course, because they are fully loaded with goodies. This time, the treasure that I picked up was a bottle of Sabatino Tartufi Black Truffle Oil! I …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Marsala Hues

The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 has been announced, and the color is….MARSALA! Hears silence… Yea, that was my reaction too. What color is Marsala anyway? Actually, some of you may be asking what the hell Pantone is. If you aren’t in some kind of art or design field, or if you aren’t a fashion enthusiast, you maybe haven’t …

Final NaBloPoMo Post!

It is the last day of the NaBloPoMo 2014 and I have done it! This is the final NaBloPoMo post! I was away this weekend and had yesterday’s post done the night before thinking that tonight I’d have enough energy to write this celebratory post when I got home. I was sooooo wrong! I am exhausted and just want to …

10 Things I Learned From NaBloPoMo

I know I am a day early with this post. NaBloPoMo isn’t over for another day–but I kind of have other stuff to do this weekend so I am highlighting the things I learned from NaBloPoMo a bit sooner. I hope you don’t mind! I had never done a writing challenge before. If you saw me posting at the beginning of November, …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Black Friday Shopping Outfit

If you’re deciding to brave the stores for some Black Friday shopping, you’ll probably have two things in mind: warmth and comfort. If you live in a cold climate, it is no fun freezing in between stores or in lines. Granted, this outfit may not quite be warm enough for sub-zero temps, but I’ll just pretend for this scenario that …
