It's Sweater Weather

The other night I was wearing a cape that I bought over the summer on sale, on sale and even more on sale at Saks Off Fifth.  A friend who was with me asked me if I would post more things from the Off Fifth site that were at a good price point.  I decided to take her up on her challenge.  Since it is now "sweater weather", I was able to find a bunch of stylish sweaters for under $100.  And most have a code for an additional 30% off. Happy Shopping!!!

Book Club Monday

Ok.....I read about this book, I have been recommended this book and I have seen it all over instagram....everyone says you absolutely positively cannot put it down...Ghosted by Rose Walsh goes like this....

When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it's mutual: It's as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call.

Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened--there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she's right. There is a reason for Eddie's disappearance, and it's the one thing they didn't share with each other: the truth. - Amazon.com

Powder Gel Manicure

I noticed a few bloggers that I collaborate with have the best manicures.  I asked them about it and they all told me that they get gel manicures but not just the regular gels, powder gel manicures.  I was impressed.  In every photo, their nails are always perfect.  I have tried regular gel manicures in the past and they really don't work for me. My nails peel within the week and never look great.  I decided to give the powder gel a try.  The label says it is the 21 day manicure.  I definitely can get the powder gel to last over 2 weeks but I'm still waiting to hit the 21 day mark.  But still not bad and my nails look awesome...better than they ever have.  And the damage to my nails have been much less than the gel manicures in the past.  Now I hope I can keep it up...Here is the procedure:

To apply, you first need to use a bond polish to the whole nail to make sure the color sticks, followed by a base coat to 3/4 of the nail. Next, dip your nail into a primer-like natural powder, then do another coat of the bond. After that, you dip your nail into the powder color of your choice and tap off the excess powder, then apply another coat of the base, and do another dip into the powder. Finally, brush on one last coat of the base and let your nails air dry. 

I've been getting my powder nails done at Tiffany Nails on the Post Rd in Rye (across from Jerry's) but most local nail places do the powder gel.  It costs about the same as a regular gel manicure.  I use color P38 (color numbers may vary), which is the closest to Ballet Slippers.  Bon Weekend!!!!

One Pan Autumn Chicken Dinner

Last weekend, a very special reader, Krissy, sent this great Fall dinner recipe to me.  She tried it for a recent dinner party and it was a HUGE hit.  I am so excited to try it this weekend.  Krissy said that even though you can use chicken breasts, it comes out best, using the bone in thighs!!!!  Bon Appetit!!!

adapted from Cooking Classy

  • Bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh herbs – rosemary, thyme, sage
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Garlic
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Sweet potato
  • Fuji apples (or other sweet baking apples)
  • Bacon
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Place pour in 2 Tbsp olive oil, red wine vinegar, herbs and garlic into a gallon size resealable bag. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper then rub mixture over chicken.
Let rest while you prep remaining ingredients.
Add sweet potatoes, apples, Brussels sprouts, and shallots to a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat.
Spread into an even layer.
Top with chicken pieces and sprinkle bacon over veggie/apple mixture.

Roast in preheated oven until chicken has cooked through and veggies are tender, about 30 – 35 minutes, broil during last few minutes for more browned crispy chicken skin. Serve warm.

Food Cravings......

I saw this chart on the wall of my doctor's office.  I thought it was so interesting...there are so many articles that help with healthy eating or tips for weight loss but very little to help control cravings.  I love this...and think it is worth a try the next time we are all craving a chocolate bar or cookie!!!!
